We're already to the end of the first month of 2007 and once again, it's time to honor and remember those that have gone on before us:

Joseph T. "Eggs" Bukovich
Norbert "Whitey" Buschell
James Lemler
Dr. Maurice D. Meier
Irene Racine
Service members who gave all

This is a long standing tradition on the last day of each month here at Pasty Central. We welcome you to also add the names of your loved ones and friends that you'd like to remember. Special thanks to Kathy Jennings for the beautiful sunrise photo to reflect upon.

By Sarah Zalewski (S_zalewski) on Wednesday, January 31, 2007 - 11:47 pm:

Hi! I check out the picture & cam notes almost every day, but this is the first time I'm writing. I was reading the names of those to remember & I saw my great-aunt Irene Racine on list. I had heard she recently passed away, but I just didn't expect to see her name like that. It was very nice to see her remembered. I guess the Yooper communities are a little closer knit than those in the Metro Detroit area.
I would also like to take a moment to remember my grandma & Aunty Irene's sister Isabel Miekstyn. She passed away 2 May 2005 after a short battle with cancer. We still miss her very much. Thank you.

By Cindy Pihlaja Russell (Gone2long) on Thursday, February 1, 2007 - 11:40 am:

She was a woman of gentleness, dignity and love who personified hard work and integrity. I miss her every day.
