Losing a loved one is never easy, no matter how old or young they are when they leave us, it hurts. We here at Pasty Central have a month-end tradition of honoring those that have gone on before us. This month we hold in our thoughts:

Alfred Brey
Gordon "Gordy" Lorash
Louise Masini
Jeff Moyle
Lillian Jamsen Richards
Maebelle Schmitt
The servicemen and women who gave their all for our freedoms

As always, we invite you to add the name of someone near and dear to you that has left this world to go on before us. Special thanks to E. Neil Harri for the brilliant sunrise he captured upon arrival at work.

Remembering one year ago yesterday we lost our very special Black Lab "Looper" at 14 years old. Her yellow colored sister "Wiggles" was to leave us a month later. One year ago today our neighbors dogs cornered our big old all white cat "Snowball" and killed him. How can I ever forget?

Someday at the Rainbow Bridge we will meet again!

Though we've had our share of human and pet losses in recent years, nothing in September. Our condolences to all who mourn.

Beautiful, beautiful photo today!

As always remembering and missing my dad, John
Axel Carlson (go OSU!), mother in law Alice Mae
Anderson Bergstrom from Iron River, beloved sister
in law Karen Nan Bergstrom Vlamis (hey Karen,
you're a grandmother this month!!) and finally
Wayne Miller Carlson of Escanaba and Bayview
Location, great friend and fellow Sumoi College
In closing, does anyone have any information of
Wayne's family? George and Dorothy Carlson and his
sister Anita? All I can remember is Mom worked at
the Leader Department store in Escanaba, and his
Dad was a retired ore boat skipper. Wayne did have
a cousin, Mark Gabrielson, whose parents owned a
grocery store in Gladstone. Mark was a Grad
Assistant at MTU when we were at Suomi. Thanks!

He lived from October 15, 1918 until September 28, 2008, just two weeks short of his 90th birthday. We will celebrate his life every year as we celebrate hers. Thank you Dad for all that you taught me and for all the comfort you gave me, especially in your last weeks of life. I know that you loved me...your 'baby', Lori
