Charlie at Pasty Central (Chopper) on Sunday, January 1, 2017 - 11:29 pm:

Had my dear Edie lived to see another winter, she would have been excited with this one, considering how she loved to scoop snow. The second photo is at our 40th anniversary celebration in 2012, and the third photo is Edie with her Dad, seated in sunlight in their family cemetery a couple of years before both of them eventually reached that destination. Earlier this morning I posted the memorial video - with music I composed and performed - on Facebook and Youtube, and have appreciated all of the kind comments throughout the day. It just took me a little longer to get it here on pasty.com, because of the New Year changeover on the website.

Look forward to beginning Year #20 of the Pasty Cam in a couple of months. Thanks for joining us on the journey.

Have a good year :o)

A very beautiful tribute to the both of you.

Happy New Year to you Charlie and to everyone.

By Richard J. (Dick_fl) on Monday, January 2, 2017 - 07:09 am:

Wow Charlie. What a tribute. Edie was a great lady and is certainly missed by everyone. I'm reminded of a song by Andrae Crouch, "Soon And Very Soon". What a great reunion that will be!  Take care my friend.

A very loving and beautiful message.Charlie
wishing you a very "Happy New Year".

Such a beautiful song and tribute, Charlie.

Charlie, That is beautiful! Edie was a lucky lady
to be loved like that. I wish you the best in the
New Year.

My son was inspired, encouraged and loved by Edie so even
though I did not know her or meet her personally, I knew her
through Paul. She was amazing and her legacy continues
through the people who were impacted by her. I ran a girls
program for years and our motto was "Touch a Heart,
Change a Life". Edie was a beautiful woman who touched
hearts and changed lives.

Oh my, that was just beautiful. How fortunate you were to have had
so many wonderful and meaningful years together. God Be with
You Til You Meet Again.

By Donna (Donna) on Monday, January 2, 2017 - 09:56 am:

That is the most beautiful video I have ever seen.
Thank you and thanks to Edie...This is what Love
looks like!!

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Monday, January 2, 2017 - 06:57 pm:

May she rest in Peace.

By Steve Clark (Chevysac) on Tuesday, January 3, 2017 - 08:59 am:

Charlie, I am currently traveling down this same road with my wife. She is still fighting but God's calling is getting stronger each day. I did fine through most of the video as I compared our lives with dogs and a son. I kept the tears back until the picture of your beautiful Edie standing between the graves of my Great Grandparents and my Great Great Grandparents in the Marquette Cemetery. May God give you peace here on earth until your meet again.

By Ron Heth (Copperharbor) on Tuesday, January 3, 2017 - 09:26 am:

I'm glad I visited this site today to get caught up on the UP happenings, but also to view the beautiful tribute to your Edie. One never knows when the ones that mean the most to you will no longer be around to share life with.

May your loss be tempered by your memories, Charlie. Thanks for sharing.

By David C Cloutier (Dccloutier) on Tuesday, January 3, 2017 - 11:40 am:

That was a beautiful tribute. Thank you for sharing it with us and for everything you do to keep this site running. Your efforts touch so many people. Have a great 2017...

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Saturday, January 7, 2017 - 10:31 am:

I'm just finally getting on to pasty this year.
Have been very busy, not feeling well, and just
sleeping a lot. Thank you for sharing these. I
understand her love of scooping. I used to love to
scoop snow also.

Have a Happy New Year, everybody!

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Saturday, January 7, 2017 - 07:51 pm:

Not sure how I missed this. Way to go, Charlie...Edie would be pleased.

By Jennifer Grace (Jennifergrace) on Tuesday, January 15, 2019 - 02:28 am:

In the profundity of winter I at last discovered
that there was in me a powerful summer. Impeccable
satisfaction is wonderful dusk, the laugh of a
grandkid, the main snowfall. It's the easily
overlooked details that satisfy minutes, not the
terrific occasions. Euphoria comes in tastes, not
swallows. In seed time learn, Univers
ity Assignment Writing
in reap instruct, in
winter appreciate.
