Another month, another year, gone by so quickly. In our long standing tradition, we pause to remember friends and loved ones that have passed on before us. Today's list includes:

Randy Kaurala
Josephine "Joann" Kleaver
John Norton, Jr.
Gerald Patana
Roderick "Rod" Schick
Shirley Waggoner
Ronald Ziemnick
Servicemen and women who have given their all

We here at Pasty Central extend our sympathy to all who have lost someone dear to them, but would especially like to point out one of our long time viewers and poster, Shirley Waggoner. Charlie mentioned her passing on Sunday, Dec. 27th (Click on the date here to read the posts from that day). We will miss Shirley's almost daily visits and comments. RIP Shirley.

Sharon Bodenus shares today's photo with us, in memory of her mother, Josephine "Joann" Kleaver, who passed away this month. Losing someone around the holidays always seems just that much harder to bear, hopefully by sharing this beautiful sunset with us, it will make it just a little easier. RIP Joann.

As always, please feel free to post the names of loved ones you've lost along the journey.

It is hard to believe that my mother has been gone 15 years now...

Where has the time gone?

I am missing Shirley so much here on Pasty Cam. It is very sad not to read her posts that she put so much life into them. May her family and friends find peace that Shirley and her beloved Frank are living life together again in eternity.

Amen, Janie. Remembering Shirley fondly on this New Year's Eve.

I echo Janie's sentiment. I miss Shirley more
than I would have believed. She was just a
breath of fresh air on this site, always so kind
and so happy with just being a part of this. She
will be forever missed.

Also missing my dad who passed away 7 years ago
this month. It feels like just yesterday that I
received that phone call. Now my brother went
through it again this month when he lost his
father-in-law exactly one week after the date of
our father's passing. It's just never easy, but
the holidays are supposed to be a happy time.
God's blessings to everybody who is going through
that feeling of loss.

My condolences to Shirley's family and also to Bob

years previous.

But also Happy New Year as we all look forward to
2016 filled with new opportunities for peace and

Bob: It is so very, very hard to lose a child, and there isn't even a
word for it. A parentless child is an orphan. A spouse who has died
leaves the other spouse a widow or widower. Childless describes
someone who cannot have children. There is no word for the
parent whose child has died. Grief isn't as sharp as time goes by,
but there will always be an empty chair on certain days of the year,
and Christmas is one of those days.

Shirley was a very important part of our Pasty Cam family. She is
missed, and like Edie Fitz, will be missed and remembered. In the
words of an old and poignant hymn, "God Be with You til We Meet
