Here we are at the end of another month. It is our long standing tradition, to pause on the last day and remember those that have gone on before us. Today we recall these folks:

Brenda Buzzo Barnhart
Loie Bidne
Margaret "Margie" Bonen
Arbutus "Boots" Dow
George Emil Koskimaki
Servicemen and women who have given their all

We here at Pasty Central, extend our deepest sympathy to all who have lost someone dear to them. Please feel free to post the names of loved ones and friends you would like to keep in memory.

Special thanks to Donna MacIntosh, for the beautiful winter sunrise with today’s remembrance.

Grandpa H.L. Johnson left for eternal life Feb.
1972. I only knew him for 15 1/2 years. Not nearly
long enough.

As Janie, i'm remembering my Grandpa Johnson, who left us on February 23, 1965, just before my 10th birthday. The funeral was on a brutally cold, snowy day and the hearse with the family got stuck in a snow bank on the way back from the cemetery. He was a wonderful grandpa and we pray he is at rest.

I knew Brenda and always liked her. She was always
such a sweet person. Condolences to her family.

And my hubby and I had the pleasure of meeting
George, Kosk's dad. He was such a nice man. Was
easy to tell why Kosk is such a good person.
Condolences to his family, as well as to the others
who have lost loved ones this month.

Beautiful picture, as always.

What an honor to have my pic on the last day, to
honor our loved ones that have passed on....and
today, I truly HONOR Loie Bidne. She was Elegant.
Classy. Caring. Loving. They "just don't make 'em
like that anymore".....She was one Class Act. Love
you and fly high......

In memory of my Aunt (also godmother) Martha Keating, who died earlier this month.

By kosk in Toronto (Koskintoronto) on Monday, February 29, 2016 - 07:24 pm:

My father had two funerals--one in the U.P. and one in the L.P.
Both places were so important in his life. He was born and died in
the U.P., with summers spent at camp making wood, picking
blueberries and trout fishing. Downstate, he taught biology,
coached basketball, helped to found the Finnish Center, wrote
books about his experiences in WWII and helped adults and children
to remember why it was important to fight WWII, leave the Earth
safe for future generations and keep the faith. I am proud of my
father and the many people who helped make his last years so
special. I am so glad that some of my Pasty Cam family had a
chance to meet him--especially Deb and Ron, Mary Drew and Uncle
Chuck. What a reunion it must be for Rudy and George in eternity.
