The end of the month is upon us once again and we take this last day of the month to pause and remember those that have gone on before us from this world:

John Buckett
Lawrence "Jack" Kiilunen
Norman Paulson
Joseph Persha
Richard Scott
Service men and women who've given their all

As is our tradition, we invite you to add the names of loved ones and friends that you'd like to hold in memory. Special thanks to Donna MacIntosh for the glowing sunrise to help us pause and remember.

Well folks, I'm still remembering my dad. Can't forget him and don't want to. I hope he's bowling and playing ball and is able to fish. It had been so long since he enjoyed anything like that.

Also remembering a woman out here in our little town who was shot and killed by her husband this week. So sad and so senseless. They were both such friendly people. I really liked them. I guess you never know.

Oh yeah, also thinking about Uncle Chuck and the rest of his family.

Beautiful picture!

By Phil Kuusisto (Pkuusisto) on Saturday, February 28, 2009 - 08:33 am:

Remembering our parents Norman and Helen Pooley, Ed and Sophie Kuusisto, Karen Kuusisto, Janet Trasti, Aunt Lyle Pooley, our good buddy Nitz Kumpula and our brother in law and friend, Wayne Hartmann. We love and miss you all and you live in our hearts today and always.

By Greta Armata (Gretania) on Saturday, February 28, 2009 - 08:46 am:

Remembering my Dad, John Blomquist, who would have been 82 on Feb 12. He used to sing us kids songs every night as a bedtime routine....although at the time we didn't know lots of them were just the bass lines from choir songs. The closer was always "Now The Day is Over"...a beautiful hymn.

By Uncle Chuck @ Little Betsy (Unclechuck) on Saturday, February 28, 2009 - 08:46 am:

Thinking of dad (Grampa Norm) today,like everyday since the 18th when he left us. We miss him very much, my life is just not the same, I keep wanting to call him in Florida and tell him how cold it is here in Michigan and just "open a keg of nails"(chew the fat) as he would so often say. Dad was really fond of the Burger King in Calumet and McDonalds in Houghton, In our travels we could afford to eat any where, but dad always liked a good Whopper (as long as they were 2 for 1), or a 99 cent double cheeseburger and don't forget his senior citizen diet coke,LOL. Well, dad I hope they have them up there! He's with my mom now and the rest of his family, so we can take comfort in that I guess.

Deb- Thinking of you and Ron as well, I hope it's getting a little easier for you to smile when thinking of your dad, and thanks for the kind words Deb.

Have a good day all!


By Doug Smith (Smitty) on Saturday, February 28, 2009 - 08:57 am:

Remembering my Brother, Dennis Smith, these past few days. He's been gone now for 5 years and I miss him, but I'm sure he's watching from up above. I must admit I feel his presence on many occasions. Today I'll have that cup of coffee and some Thimbleberry Jam in his honor. (Oh how he loved that jam!)

By Ozzie W. (10330) on Saturday, February 28, 2009 - 09:33 am:

In memory of my mom and dad, Viola and Sivert Koski, and my son, David Heikkila.They are always in my thoughts.

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Saturday, February 28, 2009 - 09:38 am:

Beautiful sunrise (or is it a sunset?).

By kay Moore (Mskatie) on Saturday, February 28, 2009 - 09:50 am:

Remembering second son, Bobby, who would have turned 50 on February 21st. Always in my mind...

By Dennis J Jarvi (Djarvi) on Saturday, February 28, 2009 - 09:59 am:

Beautiful picture, One of the first things i check out everyday. I would like to say Happy Birthday to my father, he would have been 83 today. Eino J. Jarvi, He was born and raised in Eagle River and just loved it up there. That's all he talked about with friends. Keep up the great work with the picture's, so we all can enjoy them.

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Saturday, February 28, 2009 - 10:09 am:

Lke so many here, I am missing my dad as well. I only knew him 33 years. He left way too soon for me. Being the farm girl I am, I miss most going out with dad and "talking" to the cows. He could make them look like they were saying exactly like their expressions appeared.

By Dunerat (Dunerat) on Saturday, February 28, 2009 - 10:50 am:

In memory today of my sister's partner of 22 years, Rich Carroll,
who left us last Sunday. He was so brilliant, so funny, so loving
and so loved by so many. He lead us all with his light and his
big, big heart.

Gospeed, Butch. The road is open. Ride for the light.

By DEAN SCHWARTZ SR. (Lulu) on Saturday, February 28, 2009 - 11:49 am:

In loving memory of my sister-in-law Carol Smith who passed one year ago on the 4th of Febuary. Also in honor of my Grandmother, Cecilia Kowalski who's birthday is on the 13th of Febuary.(she would be 113)

By Charlotte, Mishawaka, IN (Charlotte61) on Saturday, February 28, 2009 - 02:50 pm:

Remembering my godmother, Velma, who passed one year ago on Feb. 11th. Also, remembering my son Andy, who has been gone nearly 10 years. Miss him a great deal.

By jbuck (Jbuck) on Saturday, February 28, 2009 - 03:37 pm:

Remembering with much love Maxwell Hastings Smith, 95. A man who lived his life helping others and showing his love of his Savior to everyone he met. We were blessed to call Max our friend for the last 15 years.

And also remembering Grandpa Norm, who we never met, but got to know on these pages. We know how much your family misses you every day.

By Donna (Donna) on Saturday, February 28, 2009 - 05:01 pm:

"Ride for the Light"....GLORIOUS statement!

It's a sunRISE over Superior.

By Jon Maninga (Yooper1963) on Saturday, February 28, 2009 - 07:07 pm:

I would like to add my remembrance of my father Fred who passed away one year ago on the 24 of February.

We miss you dad & grandpa!

Jon, Sue, Katie and Amanda

By Carole (Carole) on Saturday, February 28, 2009 - 08:24 pm:

Remembering my aunt, Mary(Butala)Tressel who passed away in Feb. 1978. When we all would be up visiting my grandparents at the same time, my aunt and I would sit on the big bench behind the camp and talk and watch the cars go by, and wait for the occasional freighter passing by out in the lake. Even though I was just a youngster/teenager and then adult, my aunt and I would sit for hours and talk. Memories that I treasure till this day.

By Sandy G (Artessss) on Saturday, February 28, 2009 - 11:42 pm:

Remembering Mom...only person I knew who gave unconditional love. I miss you, Mom. She passed March, 1998.

"The road is open, ride for the light"...I like that too.

Beeeautiful picture!

By Russell E. Emmons (Russemmons) on Sunday, March 1, 2009 - 12:23 am:

Lest we forget the one and only Paul Harvey who left us this Saturday the 28th at 90 years of age!

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Sunday, March 1, 2009 - 08:42 am:

Remembering my wonderful parents, both of whom passed in February, my Dad in 1985, and my Mom in 1991. I still think about you both so often, and I miss you so much! I really wish you both could have been around to be grandparents to my 3 sons! You would have been awesome grandparents!

My thoughts and prayers are with Uncle Chuck, Norma in Midland, and your extended family on the passing of Grandpa Norm. It really does get a little bit easier, with passing time.

Deb S, I'm thinking about you and your family, too.

By Catherine Ristola--Holland MI (Catherine) on Sunday, March 1, 2009 - 11:13 pm:

Remembering Ruth Loukinen Ristola. Hard to believe it has been
seven years.

By Yooper in MN (Yooper_in_mn) on Thursday, March 5, 2009 - 09:21 am:

In memory of my grandfathers, Tapio and Mala. Also in memory of Ray Wiig, Lee Sjoholm, Gina Maki, Bob Maki, Beth Forslund, and Bryn Pieschel Cooper.
