Paul Oesterle of Webberville, frequently wrote on pasty cam. I received an e-mail from his wife Cora on the 19th saying that he had passed away the day before. His funeral was on Saturday the 22nd. I thought perhaps you would be interested in knowing this. He was one great guy and is really going to be missed by a ton of people.

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Friday, February 28, 2014 - 11:02 am:

I am so sorry for Paul's passing. Gods Blessings to his family & friends.

Remembering Ed Harjala.......and all he did to advance the sport of cross country skiing and racing in this area....a humble WWII veteran.....and all around great guy. Died today. We will miss him.

I was so sad to see Paul Oesterle passed away. What a wonderful guy, though I never met him in person. A short time after my wife passed away, I got an email out of the blue from Paul. It was filled with assurance and comfort. That email is no longer in my computer archive, though I'm sure I printed it out and kept a copy. But here's the text of a brief one he sent some months later:

Hi Dunerat. I think of you often. I hope things are well with you and your children.
God's Peace.
Paul Oesterle.

So very sorry for your loss, Cora. Paul was an extraordinarily special man.

In memory of my dear and spunky Aunt Sally Ohman who passed
away on February 18th, a little shy of her 97th birthday.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Friday, February 28, 2014 - 09:50 pm:

Remembering a wonderful girl who was only 19 years
old and just dropped on her kitchen floor to never
wake up. She was somebody that everybody loved
and will be sadly missed by her parents, brother
and boyfriend. It was just one of the saddest
weeks, praying that this beautiful, young girl
would survive. But it wasn't meant to be. She
had a congenital heart defect that nobody knew
about because she was adopted from a Russian
orphanage. She and her brother have been given a
wonderful life. I pray every day for her parents
who love her so deeply.

By kosk in Toronto (Koskintoronto) on Saturday, March 1, 2014 - 07:40 am:

That is truly tragic, Deb. Such a loss for so many people. It's little
consolation to people so close to the time of death, but later they
may come to realize that however long or short the time is that we
get to share with someone, it is a gift.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Saturday, March 1, 2014 - 08:47 am:

I knew you would for sure understand, Kosk. But
right now, that mom can hardly get through the day.
They're all just devastated! But who isn't when
you lose a child, and especially when they haven't
even gotten to live yet??

By Doug Smith (Smitty) on Saturday, March 1, 2014 - 09:12 am:

Remembering Dennis Smith. my brother, who passed on 10 years ago this month, after a valiant battle against cancer he could not win. Miss you every day Den!

By Bob Gilreath (Bobg252) on Saturday, March 1, 2014 - 12:12 pm:

Always honored when you choose one of my shots for this special day.


By kosk in Toronto (Koskintoronto) on Saturday, March 1, 2014 - 07:40 pm:

And that photograph well deserves to be honored, Bob.
