It's hard to believe we're already at the end of the month, let alone the end of the year. But here we are, pausing from our usual daily Pasty Cam, with a northern sunset reflection as we recall those folks that have gone on before us. This month we remember:

Ronald Anderson
Sister Ann Busch
Elizabeth Gilles
Barbara Malkasian
Alfred Thurner
Arthur Thurner
Victims in Newtown, CT
Servicemen and women who have given their all

Together with our U.P. friends, this month we remember the tragic loss of so many young ones along with their teachers at Sandy Hook School in Connecticut. Please remember these folks and their families, as they begin a new year without their loved ones.

As always, feel free to add the names of those you'd like to remember as this year comes to a close. Special thanks to Sue Uren for supplying us with a beautiful sunset from Sedar Bay today.

Former Yooper now living in CT, I wanted to thank all of you who are praying for and remembering the lives lost on that tragic day 12/14/12 in Newtown. It is comforting to know that, although you copper country residents are far away, your thoughts and concerns have reached out to us here in CT and are appreciated more than words can say. Thank you and may God bless you all.

Wishing all a Happy and Blessed 2013! And I'm remembering Ralph Wilson who passed away December 25th, 2011. My "sort of" Stepdad and always a friend. Those we love don't go away....they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near.....still loved, still missed and very dear.

I don't post often but have read this website each morning for over a decade. I want to add a rememberance for my mom who passed away suddenly and unexpectedly saturday evening, six days before her 88th birthday. She was a strong, adventurous woman who had introduced her children to the UP and specifically the Keeweenaw with her favorite spot being Eagle River. She was disappointed this fall when she did not feel up to making the trip however I went anyway and provided her with many photos. She was looking forward to next year's annual trek and planning what all she wanted to do while there. In memory of Jean Harsh, mother, grandmother (to kids and pets), friend and role model. We are so empty right now....

I'm remembering my dad who passed away in December of 08.
Still miss him terribly. Remembering the people CT who lost
their lives. And all of our pets, my tippy, Janie's Brody,
Joanie's Joey, and all the other pets who crossed over. We
miss them terribly too.

Great picture today.

By Shirley Waggoner (Shirlohio) on Monday, December 31, 2012 - 02:02 pm:

Deb, I'm so sorry I left your Tippy out of my (above) list. I should have remembered because I have a Tippy also.

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Monday, December 31, 2012 - 02:24 pm:

In memory of my Dad, David Baird, who went to be with God December 22, 1995.

Wishing peace for everyone. A tough month. I used to live in Newtown, CT and my children attended Sandy Hook Elementary from 1987-1989. It is a lovely community full of warm and loving people. It is a testament to the good people of Newtown that even though we lived there for only 2 1/2 years, I still count a number of people as friends, even met up in NYC with one this past June. My heart still hurts. The same day, Dec. 14th, my much loved Westie, Harry, was diagnosed with terminal bladder cancer. He is only 8 1/2 and we hoped to have him much longer. The only good news is that he is not in pain at this time and we hope to have several good months. For those who lost loved ones, human or animal, I'm sorry. Tomorrow starts a new year. Can't wait.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Monday, December 31, 2012 - 06:00 pm:

I forgot about the Capt & Dr's pet kitty. Remembering her, also!!

I also had a really good bowler friend who was diagnosed with leukemia 6 weeks ago and passed away on the 22nd. She will be missed by her husband, 5 daughters, 9 grandchildren, parents, sister and fellow bowlers :-(

By Grace M Wetton (Gmw) on Monday, December 31, 2012 - 07:54 pm:

Remembering my dad, John Ravasz who passed away Dec 6, 2003.
