By Dunerat (Dunerat) on Friday, November 30, 2007 - 08:52 am:

In remembrance of my dear wife Leslie Maxwell, who passed away this November 2, 2007 at the age of 46. Her long struggle is over and she is finally at peace.

In the deepest and most heartfelt way possible, I want to thank all of you who contribute to the Pasty Cam for the way you have sustained me over these extraordinarily difficult years. I’ll bet many of you have a pattern to your morning web surfing. I certainly do, and every morning the Pasty Cam is my last stop. I save the best for last. I take so much strength and tranquility from the sense of community here, the shared love of the UP and the deep appreciation for the simple, beautiful pleasures of family and landscape. Charlie, Mary, all your staff, and everyone who posts here...God bless you for making this place. You cannot imagine what a difference it has made.

Here is a long-overdue remembrance of an extraordinarily happy experience with Leslie, which we owe to all of you:

During the last few years of her life, Leslie began to make jewelry and created some incredible pieces in cast silver. In the spring of 2006, she ran across an article on the minerals and metals of the Copper Country and asked if we could take our summer vacation there so she could hunt for raw materials to integrate into her designs. In a heartbeat I made reservations at Fort Wilkins for the last week of August.

On August 29th, we’d started our day up on Brockway. It was a chilly, blustery, mostly overcast morning with the wind roiling up over the mountain and casting big surf on the rocks below. Still, the visibility was good and I had fun convincing Leslie and the kids that they were indeed looking at Isle Royal on the northwestern horizon. Then we headed on down the coast, stopping at Esrey Park to sit in the little shelter and watch the booming waves. Onward again, traveling the length of Great Sand Bay, then into the trees once more. “What’s that little place”, Les asked, always quick to spot fun along the roadside. I glanced over and there was the Jampot. I’d never been in there, but I knew it from this web site. In we went, to wait our turn amid the wonderful smells. “What’s a thimbleberry?” she wanted to know, and I told her we’d better pick up one of those little jars that outsell the others four to one. We got our goodies and clambered back into the warm car, the aromas of the muffins and cakes and cookies suffusing the interior. The kids giggled as chocolate smeared faces and hands, crumbs everywhere, but who cared? No utensils in the car, so Leslie used her fingers to dollop thimbleberry jam on her muffin; although she had studied for a time at the Culinary Institute of America, Leslie was stunned by this incredible new flavor. Mouths full, hearts warm, we headed on down the road, destination Allouez.

It was one of those perfect, perfect moments when all good things converge, and it is an indelible shining place in the fabric of our lives. You wonderful people in this forum made it possible, and I thank you for a gift beyond price.

As a humorous footnote, I never saw that little jar again.

God bless you all –

Christopher Beaudoin (“Dunerat”)

Gretchen L. Little "4/14/1959-11/24/2007" Breast cancer took you from us but never will you leave your hearts. R.I.P my friend you'll be missed and we love you so much!

Herman F. Sturm "6/29/1939-1/15/1996", I love you Dad!

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Friday, November 30, 2007 - 09:06 am:

My heart goes out to you and your young family, Christopher Beaudoin (Dunerat), on the loss of your young wife and mother of your children!!! I am so glad that you all found joy in Copper Country! I could not read your post today without tearing up. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your young family! Take care! The holidays and her birthday will be the hardest, especially for the first few years. Hang in there. Best wishes!

By s. dearing (Geebeed) on Friday, November 30, 2007 - 09:06 am:

Please remember in prayer the family of Cheryl Taft,(my cousin). She passed away this past week after battling kidney and lung cancer for several years.

God Bless.

By Mary L. Wolter (Mwolter) on Friday, November 30, 2007 - 09:10 am:

In memory of my uncle, Cliff Hauring.
August 4, 1932 - November 3, 2007

He was born in Laurium and graduated from Calumet High School. He worked for C&H and then the JCPenney store in Calumet. That was the start of a successful 33-year career with JCPenney. He transferred several times in this career, eventually settling in Atlanta, Georgia. He and my aunt Nancy often made the long drive to the U.P. to visit family and friends.

Thanks for the memories, Uncle Cliff!

And thanks to the folks at Northwoods Christian Assembly in Calumet who blessed us with a wonderful meal and fellowship after the funeral service. I can see why folks never really want to get too far from their Yooper roots.

By Yooper in MN (Yooper_in_mn) on Friday, November 30, 2007 - 09:14 am:

In memory of my grandfathers, Tapio and Mala. Also in memory of Ray Wiig, Lee Sjoholm, Gina Maki, Bob Maki, and Beth Forslund.

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Friday, November 30, 2007 - 09:29 am:

Today Bob and I are saying goodbye to our 10 1/2 yr. old Doberman Pinscher, "Lucky Gingerbread Boy." As big hearted dog that he is, congestive heart failure could not be cured from him therefore leaving us to do but the kindest thing for him. Goodbye Lucky, thankyou for all your love, protection, and devotion these past years! love you always, Dad, Mom, Michelle, Jason, Brimley, and Brody.

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Friday, November 30, 2007 - 09:38 am:

Bobbysgirl and Bob, my heart goes out to you on the lose of Lucky! I know how a beloved pet can be a huge part of your lives, as we have lost some over the many years. Just know that Lucky is going to a better place, "across the Rainbow Bridge". You are doing the best thing for him. Take care, where he will be pain free.

By Kathy P. (Katiaire) on Friday, November 30, 2007 - 10:04 am:

Bobbysgirl and Bob, you will be in my thoughts and prayers today. It is so very hard to say good-bye to our buds that ask so little of us and yet give so much, but to watch them suffer is, also, very difficult. Lucky trusted you to make all the right decisions and you are making the hardest and kindest.

By WishingIWasInDaUP (Sur5er) on Friday, November 30, 2007 - 10:13 am:

In memory of Pam Aukerman Brainard: a hero to all victims and survivors of officer involved domestic violence in Michigan, who we lost on November 4, 2007. Pam, you would be so proud of your sister Jen, parents, and friends who are making sure your voice is heard.

Bobbysgirl, your other dogs will be missing and mourning Lucky, too, so I hope you will be giving them extra love and attention for a while! I know what a hard decision it is to make and to follow through with, because we have had to do it several times, over the years, too. My heart goes out to you all! Take care, and love to your Scotties!

By Marylyn Hoffman (Marylyn) on Friday, November 30, 2007 - 11:12 am:

I had not seen Uncle Bob for about 40 years as he lived in Arizona for most of those years where he was a Country/Western singer known as "The Arizona Rambler"

Remembering fondly our stepfather Robert Lee Smith, Clinton Twp. MI who left us on this very day in 1999. Forever grateful for all the things he did for us and gave equally to us his 5 stepchildren!

We still can't get over the unexpected loss of 3 of our dear companion pets in a short time of a few weeks this past September and October! It's just not the same without them. It was just like losing our children.

By Jeffrey P. Carlson (Dlineman) on Friday, November 30, 2007 - 12:03 pm:

For my Dad, John A. Carlson (hey Dad, OSU beat Michigan again!!)

Beloved sister in law, Karen Nan Bergstrom Vlamis, not a day goes by that we don't think of you.

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura (Marsha) on Friday, November 30, 2007 - 12:15 pm:

The pictures of Brimley and Brody are delightful and remind us of happier days.
Peace to Lucky Gingerbread Boy today.

By Snowman (Snowman) on Friday, November 30, 2007 - 04:48 pm:

For Lucky, Gingerbread Boy and all of our beloved faithful companions;

As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played,
I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade.
I saw a wondrous image then of a place that's trouble-free
Where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.

I saw the most beautiful Rainbow, and on the other side
Were meadows rich and beautiful -- lush and green and wide!
And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see
Were animals of every sort as healthy as could be!
My own tired, failing body was fresh and healed and new
And I wanted to go run with them, but I had something left to do.

I needed to reach out to you, to tell you I'm alright
That this place is truly wonderful, then a bright Glow pierced the night.
'Twas the Glow of many Candles shining bright and strong and bold
And I knew then that it held your love in its brilliant shades of gold.

For although we may not be together in the way we used to be,
We are still connected by a cord no eye can see.
So whenever you need to find me, we're never far apart
If you look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart.

By DEAN SCHWARTZ SR. (Lulu) on Friday, November 30, 2007 - 04:50 pm:


By Snowman (Snowman) on Friday, November 30, 2007 - 04:57 pm:

For Katie and Meggie;

Warm light coming from far below,
Twinkling, sparkling is the candle's glow.
All is well up on the ridge,
The place we know as Rainbow Bridge.

Furbabies sleeping in heaven's light,
Tended by candles in the night.
Peaceful dreams be theirs to keep,
As they slumber in this night so deep.

Hearts on earth that miss them so,
Take comfort in the candle's glow.
Watching for them in skies above,
Bound eternally by a cord of love.

By Kathy P. (Katiaire) on Friday, November 30, 2007 - 05:01 pm:

In memory of my Aunt Marilyn who passed this Monday. My favorite memory is from childhood when my Aunt Marilyn would quietly return to the kitchen while the other adults visited and help me do the dishes. She always smiled and had the biggest and longest hugs for everyone! God bless my seven cousins and all her grandchildren who are missing her.

By Tom Johnson (Wardentom) on Friday, November 30, 2007 - 11:19 pm:

In loving memory of James O’Brien

My father in-law Jim passed away on Nov 11th…too soon. He
was a great man, a wonderful father to 11, a devoted husband to
Terry and a devout Catholic. Jim loved to collect things small and
large (ask anyone). Cars, boats, electric razors, pipes and pens
are just a few of his collections. That is what made him Jim. He
loved the UP. Every summer he would pack up the family and
take them north for vacation. Our vacations are a logistical
nightmare with just four kids. I don't no how they did it. Jim also
loved to cook. He made all kinds of exotic food. I can't tell you
all the stories I have heard from his kids. Beaver tail, octopus,
squid and fresh rabbit are just a few samples of his menu.
Regardless of what it was it was sure to be seasoned with garlic.
I always thought of him as a Mr. Magoo type. There could be
cars crashing in balls of flames around him or a bolt of lighting
hitting behind him. Never phased, he would plug along
unknowing of the caos around him. Taking everything in stride
is what was lovable about him. Jim will be deeply missed by all.

By Russell E. Emmons (Russemmons) on Saturday, December 1, 2007 - 12:24 am:

Katiaire:Thank you for the thoughts!

By Lori Houle (Runnerlori) on Saturday, December 1, 2007 - 12:07 pm:

In memory of my mother, June Dolores Koski Houle... you've been gone a year dear Mom, I miss you so much. And in memory of our neighbor "Wild Bill", Bill Laskey... who passed away just before Thanksgiving of this year.

Even as the sun goes down
to end the light of day,
it’s rising on a new horizon
somewhere far away-

And though our world seems darker
for the loss of one we miss,
our loved ones life is dawning
in a brighter world than this.
