Mary Drew at Pasty Central (Mdrew) on Thursday, May 31, 2007 - 03:41 am:

The month of May draws to an end, and we pause to remember those friends and loved ones who have ended their time with us here on earth:

Robert "Bob" Drew
Cynthia "Sis" Dukart
Corinne (Palo) Ferguson
Raymond Garrow
Lila Hiltunen
Verna Kangas
Helmi Laitila
Clifford Randell
Dominic Vairo
Ralph A. Ware
Servicemen and women who gave their all

Losing someone near and dear is never easy. Sharing their memory on these pages will hopefully help to ease the sadness. We thank Josh Kelley for the brilliant sunset to remember those we honor this month.

Better late, than never posting my memorial for the month of May. A tribute to my dad who passed on May 2, 1999. I learned so much from him and he was a man who had sisu and was a jack of all trades. He taught his 4 children a good work ethic and responsibility in life by example. He loved Isle Royale and fishing on Lake Superior. We miss you daddy, William John Henry Holman(Hank). He always said, "you can call me by any name you want, just don't call me late for supper".
