Every now and then our month-end memorial falls on a Sunday, when we normally have a Shoebox Memory of a U.P.-related subject. Today we combine the two, with our list of honored names below, and an older photo above from our sizable online Shoebox (aka The Guest Gallery). Steve Brimm captures the stark beauty of dead spruce overlooking a typically breathtaking Keweenaw shoreline. This happens to be one of my favorite photos from the Guest Gallery. Our thanks to Steve for providing for the Pasty Cam so many scenes of beauty over the years.

Here are just a few of the names we recall, of those who have passed on this year. You are welcome to note the names of any others to be remembered along with these:

Jon Davis
Sean Fontaine
Martha Fraki
Bianca "Blanche" Girardi
Naomi Koepel Kolb
Robert "Tootsie" Roy
Servicemen and women who've given their all

Have a good week :o)

Mr. Brimm...you've been kissed by God Himself to get such fantastic shots! Bless you....

And from Neale Donald Walsch's Conversations with God:

On the day you leave your body -- what I like to call your Continuation Day -- you will be greeted by everyone you have ever loved in any way for any reason...and, standing in front of the group, every person who has been so very dear to you. It will be a grand and glorious reunion, with joy and laughter and pure wonderment filling every heart and soul!

This has also been experienced by everyone who has ever left here -- all those who have gone before you -- of course. So do not grieve for them. They are so very happy!

And I absolutely believe this...and I KNOW my Dad is doing a Happy Dance to have Tootsie back with him...those two were inseparable fishin' buddies!

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Sunday, January 31, 2010 - 09:20 am:

In memory of my Aunt Ellie who died a year ago this past week, and my Great Uncle Lee and Mr. Herman Entemann who both died in January 1970. (I like the way the tree is silouetted with the sunset).

Steve, what a gorgeous shot to end the month with!

I didn't know that Tootsie Roy died!!! When we get to this age, it seems that everybody we know is passing away. So sad.

But today I remember a young man who was 21 years old, coming home from job hunting, who was extremely tired and fell asleep at the wheel. He crossed the center line head on into a semi. He hadn't been home from Iraq for very long. Such a shame and so hard on his family. I hope he's in a better place now.

Donna, that was beautiful! My dad knew Tootsie well, too. A lot of people that he knew have joined him in the last year or so. A cousin, Gertie Durocher, joined him this month. They were card playing buddies! So, I'm remembering Gertie this month also. I'm sure she's happier now since she'd been suffering with cancer for quite some time.

By Daniel I. Jamison IV (Ipskater) on Sunday, January 31, 2010 - 09:44 am:

In memory of my uncle, Albert Edward Petermann III who waited to usher in the New Year before departing...

By Anita Marsy-Bosley (Anitamb) on Sunday, January 31, 2010 - 11:47 am:

The world lost a beautiful, wonderful, caring soul last night; her

arms of her savior and her family. We will miss you Rita and we
will never forget what a bright light you were on earth. God's
peace to your family.

By NBG (Wannabeayooper) on Sunday, January 31, 2010 - 11:54 am:

In memory of my dad, Dwight "Mick" Ball, who joined his uncles, parents, sisters, and brother on the other side of the sunset just yesterday morning...a graduate of the School of Hard Knocks who liked nothing better than snowmobiling through Michigan snow, or a cold Pabst on the shores of Shoe Lake in our northern Indiana home.

In Memory of Walter Adams, son of Theresa Spehar, a great grandson of Joseph Plautz of Calumet, who moved his family to Calumet in 1896.

Remembering Tacy Richardson, who passed away Saturday night. She will be very greatly missed by many people. She was only 34.

Donna, your quote from Neale Donald Walsch's "Conversations with God" is wonderful! I lost my sister just over a year ago. It's a very comforting quote.

Has anyone noticed that the Still Waters facility has been bought by G.A. Hann Development of Harbor Springs, MI.? Will be renamed Garden View Assisted Living. Will be a state of the art assisted living and memory care retirement community. Nice to see Stillwaters will be used again. Was in Escanaba's Daily Press from yesterday.
