Death Is Not an End

Understand that death is not an end, but a beginning; not a horror, but a joy. It is not a closing down, but an opening up.

The happiest moment of your life will be the moment it ends.

That's because it doesn't end but only goes on in ways so magnificent, so full of peace and wisdom and joy, as to make it difficult to describe and impossible for you to comprehend.

Remembering our friend and neighbor, Craig VanderMeer, who lost his battle with cancer on Thanksgiving Day.

Also remembering my grandmother, Viena Perttunen, who died November 30, 1997 and my cousin, Craig Garlow, who also died on November 30, 1982 while serving in the Philippines.

Missing them all - every day.

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 - 07:56 am:

In memory of my wife's high school friend, Janet Norcross Wilson, who died Thanksgiving night. R.I.P.

By gretchen arnold (Garnold) on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 - 08:04 am:

Remembering my dear friend Norma Richardson this time of year on her first aniversary. I miss her every day and all the great things she brought into my life.

By Marylyn Hoffman (Marylyn) on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 - 08:57 am:

Remembering my late husband Robert Easker, who lost his battle to cancer 12 years ago on Thanksgiving Night. As I read today's comments I was saddened by the number of those who passed on the holiday. Somehow Thanksgiving is not the same anymore.

By Stewart Keskitalo (Skeskitalo) on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 - 08:58 am:

Remembering my mother who passed away on Thanksgiving Day 1974. Day by day she is always with me.
Once it it came as humor as my brother,John was in a hospital in Milwaukee,Wisconsin (Yes,MSU handily beat them in football) with pancreatitis whihh can be deadly with mortality rates as high as 50%. The staff kept at John asking him to confess that he was an alcoholic (which he wasn't}.
So I came to visit John and as I stepped off the elevator a Catholic priest noticed me. He again asked me if John liked a nip or two as alcoholism is the biggest cause of pancreatitis. No I told the priest and as a matter of fact we all ( as children of Lynn} thought that if we drank to excess she would come down from heaven and scold us. As for that four out of five of her children don't drink and one does occasionally. Alcoholics cause so many traffic deaths that I wish that we had a zero tolerance that Finland has for the driver. No excuse, no attorneys. Just jail.

By Dunerat (Dunerat) on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 - 09:09 am:

Remembering my wife Leslie, who passed away three years ago on November 2.

By DEAN SCHWARTZ SR. (Lulu) on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 - 02:26 pm:

By Brad Wargelin (Bradw) on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 - 03:37 pm:

Lovely picture. Remembering my uncle Phil Wargelin, who had a fatal fall Oct 29 just after he and his wife returned home to SE MI for the winter. He got to spend two wonderful months in their newly finished retirement dream home near Pequaming, looking across the Bay toward our multi-generation multi-family summer cottage.

By Cheryl Rozman (Cotton) on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 - 03:45 pm:

I'd like to remember my Mom Betty Beaudoin from Hubbell who passed away 20 years ago on October 28,1990. Also my sister Janice who has been gone since March 30,1974 & my Dad Ransom Cundy Jr who passed away on November 10,1975. This time of year is espeically hard yet for me but I do hold beautiful memories of you close to my heart. Love you.
I'd like to think of anyone who has lost a loved one. We've never really lost them because we all will be reunited when God calls us home too. What a happy reunion to look forward to. :)

By Hollidays (Hollybranches) on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 - 05:00 pm:

Some people are so afraid to die
that they never begin to live.

My departed family and friends lived life to the fullest. We should all follow the example.

The end of the month on Pasty Cam is a real bummer.

By Joy Brewer (Joy) on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 - 05:13 pm:

Today would have been my hometown friendís 68th birthday; Chuck Erickson, Dickinson County Road Commissioner, is greatly missed by his lovely wife, son, sister and her family, his many friends and all the citizens of Dickinson County, who benefited from his thirty plus years of service.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 - 06:13 pm:

My condolences to all of you people who have lost somebody this month, but I had no idea that Viv Holzberger passed away. My condolences to Susan, Sandra and the boys. I grew up with them and I'm sincerely sorry to hear that your mom passed away.

I lost my last 2 uncles this month. My mom's last sibling passed away in early November and my dad's last sibling passed away right before Thanksgiving. It's a strange feeling knowing that there's only my mom left. I'm so grateful to still have her.

And Hollidays, I'm sorry you don't approve of the end of the month tribute on pasty. Maybe you shouldn't read any of it. It seems the rest of us feel it an honor to pay tribute to our friends & relatives who have passed.

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 - 06:23 pm:

I agree with Deb...I appreciate Pasty Cam giving us this place to recognize family, loved ones, pets, and friends, and to make a tribute to those who have gone on before us. Til we meet again...

By Russell E. Emmons (Russemmons) on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 - 07:46 pm:

Remembering our departed step-father Robert L. Smith of Clinton Twp. MI who left us this very day suddenly November 30, 1999

By Norma in Midland (Normainmidland) on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 - 07:50 pm:

Today is a very sad day for our friends the Saxton's. They had to put their 9 year old puppy down today. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

By R.C. (Red) on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 - 07:53 pm:

Remembering Doris, Francis, and Amanda Chamberlain.

By Sarah Olson (Slor) on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 - 08:07 pm:

Remembering my dear friend, Richard D. Jennings, who died in a tragic accident on Thanksgiving Day in Wyoming while out searching for the family Christmas tree. Rest in peace.

By Grace M Wetton (Gmw) on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 - 08:58 pm:

By Michael Du Long (Mikie) on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 - 10:23 pm:

By Ken ja Mimi from da UP (Kenjamimi) on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 - 11:42 pm:

Remembering Ruth Kinnunen from L'Anse, and Bernice Maki from Chassell who both died this month 2 days apart, Nov. 11 and 13th. Ruthie is my cousin and Bernice her sister-in-law. We'll miss you both. Remembering, too, Mimi's cousin
Matt North from Hancock who died Oct 26 of this year.

By Ken ja Mimi from da UP (Kenjamimi) on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 - 11:49 pm:

We'll also miss Bob Raffaelli's accordion music. Such a nice man. We were at the Range Lounge in South Range last year in October when he was taken to the hospital for by-pass surgery.

Mary says: Actually Ken, the Robert Raffaelli listed above is Bob's grandson. Bob is still playing accordion, I just had the pleasure of hearing him play last Friday at the Bluffs.
My sympathies to the family and to all who have lost loved ones recently.

By Cheryl Rozman (Cotton) on Wednesday, December 1, 2010 - 12:05 am:

I also agree with Deb & Janie T. The last day of the month page is a nice way of remembering people who we loved & had an impact on our lives & lives of others. And like Deb, sometimes when we don't live in the Country Country we don't realize that someone has passed away that we knew & we see it here. Keep the tradition of it going Mary & Charlie.

By Thea (Tkelwag) on Wednesday, December 1, 2010 - 12:06 am:

Remembering my mom, Ruth Kelly, who passed away on November 16, 2010 and her brother Richard White who passed away the following day. Mom loved Eagle Harbor, berry picking, jam making, wildflowers, knitting.

By Charlotte, Mishawaka, IN (Charlotte61) on Wednesday, December 1, 2010 - 02:36 am:

Remembering my mom, Betty Rogers, who passed away Nov. 13, 2000. She never got to see the great-granddaughter that she so wanted, she was born six weeks after mom's death.

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Wednesday, December 1, 2010 - 07:56 am:

In memory of Barbara Hosking, whose family has roots in Norway, Michigan, who died in the Our Lady of the Angels School fire on December 1, 1958 in Chicago along with 94 others.

By Diana P. (Diana) on Wednesday, December 1, 2010 - 10:38 am:

Thank you, Donna, Cheryl, and others, for the reminder of the wonderful reunion which awaits us in Heaven with our departed loved ones. It is sorrowful when a loved one passes on to the next life, but it is comforting to know that our loved ones are with those who had gone before them ... and so it continues. God Bless.
