Another month has come and gone, which means it's time to pause and remember those loved ones and friends that have also gone from our lives. We hold the following people in our memories and our hearts:

Claire Hendrickson
John E. Kappler
David Kempeinen
Raoul “Pete” Pietri
Virginia Rivest
Luella Tomberg
Laurel (Llamamama) Zechlinski
Servicemen and women who gave their all

I just want to take a moment here to mention that all these folks will be greatly missed, but I want to wish my husband's Uncle David and our good friend John, "A safe journey Home." RIP

Please feel free to add the names of your loved ones and any comments you might want to make, too. Special thanks to Robert C. Wetton for capturing the sunset in Bootjack recently and sharing it as a beautiful remembrance of those who have passed on.

I would like to take a moment to ask that everyone remember all who died this past week. Also Please Dear Lord keep in your loving arms all of the poor souls that were lost this past June. I keep in my prayers and thoughts that each passing is to better understand your plan for us all.

Thank you for keeping us reminded of the price of freedom we all enjoy. On this upcoming 4th of July, along with the personal losses we all face, keep those in mind who have paid the ultimate sacrifice over the years so we may enjoy the fun, family, and freedoms we celebrate on that day and every day throughout the year.

I get am subscribed to a regular email, and this was one recent one:

Death does not exist. The soul lives forever and ever, and even forever more.

Has someone you know and loved died recently? Celebrate that person's Continuation Day! They have moved in Consciousness and Beingness to a place of wonderful renewal and remembering, where all that we have "forgotten" here is once more understood and experienced. It is a time of great happiness.

And know, too, that you will be seeing that beloved person again, and you will laugh and dance and sing and hug and smile and talk endlessly about "the good old days," and you will share an even larger kind of love than you could ever know upon the Earth, and all of both of your lives will suddenly make sense as you see how you shaped an important part of each other's Journey. And it will be a Blessing, this enhanced awareness, and you will abide in peace and joy.

By Helen (Heleninhubbel) on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 - 09:15 pm:

My heart is with Claire's family...especially her children whom she loved so much. Claire was the nicest person you could ever ask for. Kind, generous, sweet spirted and always with a smile......she is missed by all who knew her.


God Bless each and everyone of you.....

Remembering Wayne Velmer of L'Anse, who died on June 15th at the age of 48. Left his wife and a young son. He was the drummer of the Polka Drifters band. When I first started with Wilho Kilpela, Wayne was his drummer, almost 12 years ago. He died of brain cancer. Let's keep his family in our prayers.
