Don't deaths come in threes as they used to say? First for me to remember is Dean Meador an avid ice fisherman who was finally found after 3 months. A dear friend and fellow Winter Texan Dan Stone of Muskegon, Mi. left to be with his Lord Easter Sunday. And my niece Peggy and Gordy lost his parents within several weeks of each other. Peace be with them all.

Cheryl, David H., Mikie, and Carolyn, thinking about all of you and your losses. God bless! That goes to all the rest of you whom I don't know as well also.

YooperinTexas, did the Gauthier you talk about ever live in Lake Linden that you know of? I once knew a family who lived there and then moved to L'Anse. Was just wondering.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Tuesday, April 1, 2008 - 08:15 am:

I don't think anybody mentioned Bill Seiler, and I forgot. I worked with him at UP Power when I was fresh out of high school and he was so much fun to be around. I believe he died in March. Anyway, remembering Bill.

By David Hiltunen (Davidcorrytontn) on Sunday, April 6, 2008 - 06:02 pm:

I posted above for my Dear Sister Judy, and made a wish to get in touch with my Brother-in-law and my two Nieces who are in the Detroit area. Was nice of you Fran to remember Judy in that way. Well my wish came true,my Niece Lori called today Sunday April 6, 2008 one day short of a week since my post here. But the news she had was not good. She did get phone number for me from the Internet, she did not see my post here. She called to tell me her Sister,my oldest Niece who was just 41 in Dec. was found dead by her Father in a chair at home. When I called my Brother in $ Bay to tell him, and for him to call some other family, he phoned me back to tell me he just was told our Uncle Harry Gilbert passed on a month ago. He lived in Burton, MI. near Flint where he retired form AC Sparkplug many years ago. I don't know why nobody told us this back then? All of us Cousins who are now the old timers with grandchildren need to get in touch, if any of you are out there reading this. Only one Uncle left out of all of them. So Uncle Harry has gone to be with his Mom & Dad, brothers and sisters that went before, and Leanne with her Mother and Grandmother. Gone but not forgotten.....
