Barbara Filer of Hancock lived her life with grace and courage. After being diagnosed with breast cancer, the former head of Tech's Career Center made it her career to help in the Relay for Life and served on Hancock's school board. See for more about this wonderful giving woman whom I had the pleasure of knowing.

Barb (Stover, as I knew her) Filer made a huge difference in my life. As a confused sophomore at MTU (many years ago), she counseled me and helped me find my inner strength. I never knew she was still in the Keeweenaw until I saw the notice of her death in the MTU newsletter. I was saddened to hear that she passed away because I have often thought of her. She made a huge difference in my life.

My husband Peter, along with our past dogs (Silver, Mocha, and Pookie), our present dogs (Major and Elke) and myself look forward to meeting and romping with Abby on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.

I lost my Dad when I was 15. However, I gained a wonderful Dad when I was 18 (I married into his family). This is for Dorothy J. Edgar, his wife and soul-mate. With love

Ode to Gentleman Jim

To a man of honor and to a man of truth,
To a man who unselfishly gave his youth,
To defend and protect those in his charge.
His obligation was never too large.

He honored us with his unselfish love,
Not unlike our Heavenly Father above.
His legacy is so simple yet grand,
This man of honor, this man of sand.

His life is one we now honor and praise,
All of the children that he lovingly raised.
And although we didnít know from the start,
This man who completely gave his heart,
We now know..

With love.

I don't know if you remember me or if you are talking about the same Lou that I knew but I am pretty sure that you are. My name is Jennifer Burkholder and I am Ed Niemi's granddaughter. Just wanted to say hi since I noticed your mother's name on this list.

In memory of my wonderful husband, Jim. He was loved by so many & was such a great guy. I miss him so & he will always be by my side as long as I shall live & can join him in Heaven

Your thoughts and prayers in my dad's memory would be appreciated. Robert Eskola of Royal Oak, summer resident of Houghton Canal, died November 28, 2001.

By Gerald M. Blahut, Rochester, MI on Thursday, April 4, 2002 - 02:53 pm:

In memory of Gerald R. Blahut who passed away Nov. 9th. My dad didn't like to travel, but he loved his trips up to the Copper Country in the 70's to visit me, my sister and her husband while we were busy at Tech. His morning walks to the
Kaleva Cafe (with an occasional stop at Pauls bar), Copper Country cruises and making me and my roomates stuffed cabbage are all lasting memories I have of his visits. Thank you for providing a
forum to remember not only my Dad, but the Copper Country as well.
