We've come to the end of August and with it, the end of the summer season. As is our time honored tradition, we pause on this last day of the month, to remember those that have left us for their journey beyond. Today we recall these people:

Helen Barrette
Walter “Karl” Dickson
Barbara Dube
Anthony "Tony" Kalcich
John A. Olson
Steve Ricketson
John Wallace
Servicemen and women who have given their all

If you'd like to join in remembering, please feel free to add the names of your friends and loved ones here below. Special thanks to Philip Odum, for supplying us with the beautiful sunset to reflect on today.

Remembering Tony Kalcich today. I hung out with his daughter during all of our elementary school years. He was such a nice man. His family will miss him.

Great sunset picture. I chose it as my favorite for the slideshow on What's UP!! Though you can't go wrong with a sunset picture. They're lovely!

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.

Conversations With God, Book 2
Neale Donald Walsch

By Shirley Waggoner (Shirlohio) on Wednesday, August 31, 2011 - 09:28 am:

Thank you for that, Donna.....a thought that eases the hurt. In my thoughts everyday are my precious husband who left us on May 7th, one of my three sisters, Marjorie Waddell, who left us July 2010, my daddy, Luther Waddell, who passed away in Oct., 1993, and my mama, Macie Sweeney Waddell, who left us in June, 1989. My heart weeps. May God comfort all of us!

By sometimesyooper (Nancyd) on Wednesday, August 31, 2011 - 09:44 am:

That is beautiful Donna. And it fits todays photo, which I think is a sunrise, not a sunset. A new beginning to the day and a new beginning as a person transitions from life on earth to whatever comes after.

Missing my Dad, George Kentala, who went home on August 12. Love you Dad.

It's been a year last week that my "little girl" lost her husband. Time does go on but memories sustain us. Special prayers for our service people we lost, particulary the crashed helicopter in Afganistan. Peace be with their families and friends.
