Tony remains one of the most talented designers I will ever meet. I will never forget his passion when we were designing boots for the winter olympics. I couldn’t help but smile and admire his enthusiasm, nor the lengths that he went to to make brilliant concepts come to life through his prototypes and beautiful drawings. I continue to think, to this day, that it was so lucky for me that he offered to fly me out on a moments notice to Florida in 2020, as he left important documents in Detroit. Not only was he a great host, but helped me reschedule my flight for important business I had back at home. If I had known it would be the last time I would see him, I probably would never of left. He was generous, patient, and genuine. The world loses an incredible talent, but I hope that his friends, colleagues and I will continue to be inspired by his passion.

Many happy memories of Terry sailing penguins against me and then in later years occasionally having her crew with me at Columbia and Skokie Lagoons.

Dear Tony, we used to be very close and had so much fun during our time in college, you're a very smart, hard-working, and talented designer. I was so happy for you that your shoe design got selected by Jeremy Lin and it became the Jeremy's first signature shoe. I wish the world would have seen your talent better. But I'm sure you're shining on the other world. Rest in Peace my brother.

I vividly remember being a member of a Value Engineering Team with Terry, having worked with her for many years at Greeley and Hansen. We drove to the VE study together to Elkhart, Indiana. She was very knowledgeable, and a very fun person to be around. I am so honored to have known her.

I'll never forget the wonderful day I spent with Terry and Kathryn in 2017, sailing on San Francisco Bay aboard the Santa Maria, skippered by Captain Dave. Terry shared many amazing stories about sailing around the world.

Yo, so check it, my man BIG RON or DRON for short, comes from when I was living in Treehou5 about 5 years ago. Me and Nelson Mandingo would be late night chillin, watching "The X Files," and then up from the depths would come BIG RON, and he would head for the kitchen. He would sneak a couple snack-y-poos and then head back to the basement, from whence he came. The other memory I have is him screaming at his computer. I later realized that he was playing PUB-G, and I understood where he was coming from. My first roommate in the Marine Corps used to scream at his TV, and it gave me flashbacks of living in Tr33Hou5. And ultimately, all I can say about BIG RON is that he had the biggest heart. He was immensely selfless, and cared more for those around him than himself. He took the time to ask about my day and always cared if something was off or wrong, and gave his input respectfully. BIG RON, brother, you will be missed. I love you.

The few times I crossed paths with Ronnie he always left me with a feeling of love and laughter. His smile is most memorable and permeating in my mind. That smile radiates in glory now.

The first day we met on New Years in 2016.. you never changed. Just amazing woman, smart, kind and the love for your family and kids I admired. I always said I wish bonds with my siblings like you! You then became my big sister I never had! Thank you for everything, the talks, legal advice being my shoulder to cry on when I told you about my mom. I love you girl! You’ll always be in my heart and I will never forget you! 💙💙

Cettina Jones posted on 7/19/22

First, condolences to the Williams and Random family. I met Becky through a mutual friend and she instantly became a part of my very small circle. So kind and giving and easy going. I could never step into her home and not be forced to have a white Russian. I was so happy to have a friend that was an attorney. I would say, "my friend practiced law" and then call Becky to get legal advice. I was proud of her accomplishments. Here I am a lil black girl from the hood having drinks and good times with my white lawyer friend. Lol I use to say, "I always wanted a white friend Becky" and she would say something goofy in return and then we'd laugh and I'd say, "You know you my favorite white girl" lol she never took my words as anything other than love. Becky you will definitely be missed my dear. It's hard to believe you're gone. I hope you know that you were loved by many and losing you is a hard pill for us all to digest. God has you now and I know you're looking down and seeing the many lives you've impacted. Rest easy Becky with the good hair. Blessings to all friends and family.

"What a world went with her. Ours" What distilled love and sorrow.I did not know this bird--could not have. And yet, because of you, poet, family, I too grieve for the loss of this lovely girl. Do not think her influence upon this beautiful, horrible world stopped when she stopped flying--it didn't. Because she was lovely, and you loved her, and said so, I, an unrelated old man with sons who have lived twice as long as she, I now know know something of power and beauty which she gave to her brief world. Because of you, poet, family, I will remember Simone, a girl I never knew. Some will say that she is dead. I will tell you that she is changing my life. Thank you all.

Firstly, I would like to send my condolences to the family. Mark was one of a few people that I first met moving to Oregon over 30 years ago. There's so many things to say about him he was one in a million. He was a stand-up man. Throughout the years we had plenty of good laughs and Good times together and that included Jeff one of his good friends. If you needed it anything mark would be there for you.

I am just now finding out about the passing of Steve Tichenor. God speed old friend. Steve is also survived by his first wife Patricia Ostrom of Champaign Illinois. We all met Steve shortly after he arrived in Oregon in the summer of ‘72 with another friend from Oregon he met while stationed in Texas with the USAF. Steve became our bands mechanic, tech guru and around Mr. Fixit. Zany and larger than life with a sharp sense of humor and always up for a party. For ten years we all lived the life of rock&roll outlaws, misfits, international “importers” and general pranksters. It was a great ride and like all such things came to an end too soon when most of us drifters off to our own corners. Lost all track of Steve for almost thirty years for which i am most sad. I hope someone posts up when the celebration of his life will be happening. Rest easy old friend. See you on the other side.

Martin Henninger posted on 5/23/22

Steve was an incredibly positive, dynamic spirit amongst the people he called his friends and I was honored to be counted as one of them. We shared a relatively short period of our lives together, maybe ten years all told, but he extended his generosity to me on many, many occasions, the most selfless being the repair of my first car after a nightmarish road trip on snow and ice coming home from a gig in Madras with my rock band. I learned how car axles were replaced and what happens when a wheel bearing goes out and you're far from home! He did this in the driveway of my parents home, an operation that took several hours and asked for not a penny from me in recompense, instead encouraging me to keep playing music, a promise I made to him then and have continued without stopping all these 50 years later. The memory of his big heart and love of music will stay with me always, but especially his always positive go-get 'em attitude which lifted me up so many times as a very young man trying to navigate adulthood. I will miss him dearly and treasure his memory! God Bless you, Steve!

Karen and Heather at Cat Adoption Team posted on 5/21/22

Paul was such a wonderful friend to cats! His generous support helped save and improve the lives of many cats, as well as the people who came to love them. In our conversations with Paul and John, their dedication to their personal cats was also every-apparent. Emily and Ennis, the cats Paul and John lived with while we knew them, were very lucky indeed. We are grateful for the time we were able to spend with Paul and John together, and even to have "met" Ennis during a video Happy Hour.

A mother never forgets those who offer support and acceptance of their child. This is what Susie meant to our family - support and friendship. From our first meeting at Chehalem Elementary, she became an advocate for our son. Time went on, we stayed in contact and the events we shared together always were teaching moments - the art of living life. How precious are our memories of this wonderful lady. We were honored to be in attendance Friday. We pray for comfort for Tom, Joel and Emilie and family.

Susan R LeMaster posted on 4/20/22

My treasured time with Susie was during the early pandemic when she needed companionship and a bit of direction. It was not easy to find the need behind her bright presence, ready conversation, quick recall, enthusiasm and big laugh. I found her hook in dropping a Yiddish word in the conversation, often unsure if I was using it correctly, and if not, she was sure to put it in context.Only in hearing of her full life can I measure how much was impacted by dementia, Susie remained curious and elegant, lipstick and all.

What a great lady our Aunt Lucille was! Her parents both born in the 19th century, and she survived well into the 21st. She was our link to the past. She was smart as a whip. She was so good to our mom, her niece. They weren't that far apart in age. They could both talk into the wee hours.She was a Ketcher: when they loved you, you knew it.Condolences to Lisa and Gareth and their families.

I know that there are many of us who will cherish the memories that you have left with us. May you rest in peace. Leave some dimes and pennies so they know you are with them and dropping the Pennies from Heaven. Also if one of them has a smart mouth could you possibly make them trip. You were always fun to be around I enjoyed so many events with you. Those things I will miss and keep cherished. Always and forever your legacy will live on.

Bob williams posted on 1/18/22

Pat Gaddis was one of the few people i've met who was thoroughly interesting.My mind never wandered even after hours of listening to her memories. Maybe it was because she remained interested, without any rote, in what she was saying--it stayed live for her, not totally past.Faulkner said, "The past is not dead. It is not even past." She didn't take me back as much as bringing events forward so we shared a layered present.Pat Gaddis stayed a girl her whole life. Thanks be to Big Bob who provided the love and understading to support this and make the miracle of Pat Gaddis possible, REAL, enduring.

To Amy's friends and family: I know our words may not quell the grief you're experiencing, but I hope you can find some comfort knowing how much of a powerful impact she made on so many lives. Amy's smile is forever burned in our minds . . . serves as a good reminder to speak up for those who have been minoritized and marginalized and to love as hard as your spirits allow. Amy's light shone so brightly; I know she'll continue to inspire and she won't be forgotten. My heart is with you all as you grieve.

I met Amy in 2010 after my world had been turned upside down by personal tragedy, and I was just a shell of myself. Amy saw I needed a friend, and she really helped bring back to life. She had a way of making those around her feel seen, included, valued for their uniqueness and idiosyncrasies. Her sense of humor was second to none. Her passionate advocacy inspired me and helped shape me personally and professionally. I want to offer my most heartfelt condolences to Amy's family - and I want you to know how much she meant to me and to so many others. She was a bright light and I am so grateful to have been lucky enough to know her.

I wanted to send my sincere condolences and share a few words. Truth is, I don’t know much by way of churches or funeral homes. I always thought the outdoors are God’s greatest cathedral where one might venture out in an effort to look in. Which, perhaps, is why on this day I found myself walking outside beside a river, in the snow, when my thoughts naturally found their way to Amy. There was nothing ever subtle about Amy. Striking wit, voice, laughter and smile. She wore many emotions on her sleeve along with some beautiful ink. To me, that’s just who she is. I knew Amy from a brief snapshot of time when attending nursing school and thereafter as she helped me secure my first job. She is a true badass—doesn’t mince her words—and has the conviction and passion to do whatever is necessary for the best outcome of her patients and her friends. With the outpouring of love it’s clear that those who have known her feel a devastating loss…collectively shedding ribbons of tears that now link into rivers providing exposure to depths which would otherwise go unseen. The tapestry they paint are a marvel for good reason—one may only think of the Grand Canyon to take in the full effect.Yet some grief, like a river, is so expansive that it can not be waded across but rather walked beside. So, I’ll walk beside this for now and remember the incredible spirit of the person who is a reprieve to many—patients, family and friends alike; has the fortitude not to take shit from anyone; and who embodies a love which will ricochet in the chasms of our hearts a little longer than always. You are missed but not forgotten, Amy.

Amy was an amazing person. I am grateful I was able to connect with her as a friend and coworker. She is missed. So sorry to her other friends and family who are grieving.

Arlene Danschin posted on 12/23/21

Close to a year ago I experienced the death of a young patient during the Pandemic. I felt awful and was riddled with everything that went wrong during that situation. Amy gave me a hug and reminded me that I did everything I could for the patient--her support helped me cope with that patient's death. I will miss Amy and will always carry these beautiful memories with me.

Beckie Menten posted on 12/22/21

Amy’s incredible beautiful smile will always be burned in my mind. She was always the warmest, friendliest, funnest girl around - not to mention her great style. She deserved many more years and there is no condolence for this loss. I will treasure her memory and be richer for having known her.

I am so sorry for your loss and all of our loss. Amy was such a bright light. We met thru Shriners on our weekly visits for our son Gabriel's infusions.

But we will always remember your smile and beautiful soul.

To Amy's family and those closest to her, I am deeply sorry for your loss. Amy was brilliant, beautiful, and an absolute joy to work with here at Shriners. She had a precious way with hospitalized children and was consistently able and willing to put herself in someone else's shoes. I will miss seeing her beautiful face and sunny smile.

I framed so many of Donna's art pieces. She was creative in ways so outside the box and she she always had a vision for just what she wanted. I admire that kind of self-confidence and artistic exploration. She was a creator...made in His image.

Oh, Steve! My dear, dear friend of my heart. You were the kindest friend I've known. You with your beautiful soul, your giving heart, all ready to help wherever you could. You and your goofy jokes, your big ol hugs, and all the raucous laughter we shared. . We were a little crazy. Times with you made every day spent with you perfect. I have all these memories... and I'm sure going to miss you like crazy! You were one of a kind! One day, I'll see you again and I know you'll be there with arms outstretched and laughing.

I was saddened to read that Lesley passed away. I met Lesley at Our Lady of Sorrows in Portland. Lesley was the beautiful girl in school that all the girls were jealous of. She was beautiful, kind, and befriended this fat ugly, Awkward girl that came into the school. That girl was me. Lesley shopped at Nordstrom's; I shopped at Fred Meyers. She never made me feel I was below her. Yes, she introduced me to “Queen.” The posters of Queen and Freddie Mercury cover a wall in her room; she loved Freddie. One time Lesley and I went into Fred Meyers and stole “ Sally Hansen's press on nails, “ We were convinced would-be caught. When we got outside, we threw the nails away in the garbage and ran home. Lesley and I remained friends off and on Throughout our teenage years. Lesley was the first person I confided in about the abuse I was going through living with my mother. As time went by, she and her mother (Fran) helped me and my brother get away from the abusive home we lived in.Fran (Lesley’s mom) was a special lady, kind and beautiful. That apple didn't fall far from the tree. I ended up going to live with my father in Washington. Lesley came up to visit me several times. I would go and call Lesley in Oregon. I ended up moving back to Oregon with my mother. It was the summer between our freshman and sophomore years. Lesley told me, “don't do it” ( she told me even though she would love to have me back in Oregon, please don't move back to your mother's). Lesley was that caring person that would tell you how she felt but would never tell you, “I told you.” I found my strength after living with my father and stepmom. The ugly duckling became a swan. It didn't work living with my mother; I left her house when I was fifteen and moved in with my boyfriend. Of course, Lesley was there through everything. We lost touch through the years. I didn't see Lesley again until 1988. I was shopping at a mall in Oregon City with my baby boy Benjamin. Do you know that feeling that someone is watching you? This lady was staring at me from another store across the walkway (the stores had all glass). She would glance at me and look away. Of course, I stared at her the whole time. I took my baby, and I was going to confront this chick. Yes, it was Lesley Fouche. We laughed, she said, “ I knew it was you, Tandi, only you would keep staring). Lesley was still beautiful and kind. She invited me to her sister Robin’s wedding.Lesley would continue our friendship like time hadn't passed. I attended Robin’s wedding. Robin was just as beautiful and kind, loving as her Little sister Lesley. Lesley had me sit in front to the left of the Church. I felt so uncomfortable; it had been years since I had seen the family. I couldn't wait to get out of there. I felt uncomfortable because I couldn't tell Lesley how horrible my Relationship was; I sank fast. Lesley never knew how people could watch her and see her strength. Her beauty wasn't just the outside. Her beauty was her whole being. After seeing Lesley, I got my strength back. I moved back to Washington. I found a wonderful man and have been married for 31 years. Lesley and I found each other when she moved to Kansas City, MO.We had talked a couple of times. Throughout the years, I would look up Lesley. As I would expect, she was living her life. Lesley had her way of touching people, not always in words. Most of the time, it was that look; she tilted her head and smiled. Her eyes would go through you, and she knew what you needed. Lesley Fouche Jackson Definitely left her mark on this world.

I had the pleasure of being Dean of the College of the Pacific during the latter part of the service Robert and his wife Janine provide us all. They embodied the ideal of the educated and cultural aware person the College hoped to graduate. They saw language as the gateway to the refective life and provided a host of ways for students to become language learners. While they contributed to scholarship in their field and to the life of the College and University, their first concern was their students. They were able to convert several generations of undergraduates to the importance of language and culture despite the social and administrative upheavals of the times. They have been long remembered at Pacific and contributed to the image of the school as a sanctuary for liberal learning. I am also aware of the positive home environment they provided for their sons. Their footprints endure generation to generation.

Clark County Food Bank was a beneficiary of the beautiful life of Marilyn Cameron. With her husband Gerry, the Camerons were generous and caring, wanting to make sure that the people in our community were taken care of and helped. We appreciate the beautiful tribute that was written here and have good memory of Marilyn’s graceful and true beauty, the delightful sense of humor, and the sparkle and joy she brought to every situation. Many thousands of people in our community were helped and served because of Marilyn’s desire to give. The hungry have been fed, and this life is the reason why. You will be missed, but your legacy lives!

My favorite memories of Aunt Marilyn and Uncle Gerry was when they would take me out for our birthdays. It was so sweet of them but because Gerry and I shared birthdays it was extra special.

Kelly Medici posted on 9/30/21

One of many lovely memories I have of Marilyn was the occasion of her 40th birthday. Mr C, as I called him, had put extremely large lawn signs in the neighbors yards so any drivers approaching the house could read the message GUESS WHO’S FORTY! With a prominent arrow pointing to the Cameron home. Marilyn was slightly embarrassed but pleased as well with the attention and good wishes she received from all. It was a beautiful and fun party that I was lucky to attend as a friend of her daughter Susan. I can still see Marilyn’s face at the unexpected arrival of a dear old friend she hadn’t seen in ages. She will be missed by everyone who knew her. Much love to all her family.

Jeanne Gibbons posted on 9/29/21

In reading this most beautiful, heartfelt and loving tribute to Kevin, I am moved by the richness of the experiences of him by those who knew him best, and by his legacy of love in having donated bone marrow to his brother, Jake. I will never forget, Cathy, the day you discovered that Kevin was a match for Jake. Were it not for his selfless, lifesaving gift, there might not be the three beautiful children who have added so much love and happiness to your extraordinary family. May Kevin Rest In Peace, and may you and all his loved ones find comfort and peace in memories and fellowship.

Heartbroken to hear of the passing of this terrific young man with the infectious smile. Our memories or Kevin are all fun - Halloween humor as a River Vale teen, snowboarding/ski trips to Lake Tahoe and Vermont (where, always unique, he opted for lasagna over pancakes with real maple syrup for breakfast), backyard BBQs and many more. Although we have not had the pleasure of seeing him for many years, but will fondly remember all the times we enjoyed with him and his wonderful family. God Bless him in his eternal rest, and God Bless his family who have to deal with this great loss.

I met Kevin when he was a colicky infant - but when he stopped crying, his gorgeous eyes, his smile and his cute cowlick made you forget that he ever cried! I had the opportunity to meet up with Kevin a number of times over the years. There was no crying when we got together - only smiles, laughs and his urge to share his favourite. eateries. Kevin was generous with whatever he had - and the courage that he mustered to get on a plane and donate stem cells was astounding! He showed me courage that I rarely get to see. When I get into a hard spot and have to muster up courage, he is one of my sources of strength.

Dr Gerald Cogan was a tireless and passionate advocate for protecting our constitutional rights and freedoms. He was a steadfast supporter of the ACLU and the Democratic Party. Please re-read the Preamble to the US Constitution. He was devoted to the ideals of our country, and was writing a book based on the Preamble. He was a man who took to heart the admonition of the prophet to love justice and mercy and walk humbly with the Eternal. He will be missed.

We are so thankful to have spent time with Ed, especially after Margaret passed away, when he shared stories about growing up on a farm, when the family dog saved his life at a very young age, and some of his memories of being part of the Normandy Invasion and being recruited to drive General Patton around periodically. Many of these visits were over breakfast at Elmer's or later at the house with the hospitality of his family or in front of our house, visiting with Debora and Ed on their way home from a scenic drive. We will miss you dear friend!!!

Debbie, Barbara, and Steve,It's hard to believe your dad is gone. It truly feels like the end of an era! I never knew he had served overseas in WWII. As a child it never occurred to me to ask. My memories of Ed are from childhood, when we lived directly behind the Doells on the same block in North Portland. We attended the same church, and Debbie and I were in the same class in school. My dad and Ed took turns, week by week, patiently driving us kids to school in the mornings. If I remember rightly, Ed drove a Mustang in the 60's? The memories that make me smile the most: Ed and his beloved Chihuahuas. Ed carrying puppy Mindy around in his shirt pocket. Ed racing outside at night in his bathrobe to rescue Cindy when she tangled with a raccoon (he actually grabbed the raccoon and flung it across the yard!) He really loved those dogs!Debbie, it meant so much to us that you and Ed came to my mom's funeral. If I had known in time, I would have been there at your dad's service. My condolences on your loss.

The two longest road trips in my life were driving from Portland to Vegas with friends and from Portland to the beach with Great Grandpa. If you’ve ever driven with Grandpa you know that the Vegas trip was faster. Aside from driving incredibly safe, it was the air he wanted to breathe, the scenery he wanted to see, when we arrived it was the crashing waves he wanted to hear but most importantly the time with his loved ones he cherished most. I was certainly not appreciative of such a life lesson at that young age yet as I grow older, it’s a lesson which has stuck with me as I continue to learn how to enjoy time as he did. For that, I am forever grateful. Thank you Grandpa <3

I first met Cherie as a young girl and remember her as a warm, loving person with an exciting "waterfall laugh." Cherie always had a smile for all of the Camp Fire Girls. In 2004 it was Cherie I turned to for help finding a new home in the tender months after my divorce. She was professional, an good advocate for me in the purchasing process, and as warm and welcoming as ever. Cherie understood it was a tough time for me, and she took me under her wing.

I was blessed to have met my cousin Cherie during my college years back in the mid 60's, Cherie and daughter Kristie, came to Montana on a vacation to visit relatives and to see our area of Montana. They seemed so happy and joyful that I wrote to thank them for their visit upon their return back home. Thus, a wonderful family friendship had started.As I look back in remembrance of Cherie, I think of how meaningful and encouraging she was along my life's journey. What a wonderful,caring lady Cherie was to me and to others that she touched. Unforgetable were the family ski trips to Mount Hood, the exciting salmon fishing trips on the mouth of the Columbia, River and the enchantment of the trip through Oregon's Lava Cast Forest.I will always remember Cherie as one of the "shining stars" to my life. May Cherie's wonderful family and friends hold memories of her deeply and tightly within their hearts. Thank you, Cherie, may you rest in peace. . .

My deepest condolences to all her family and loved ones.

My Mother's brother Pat,I will hear his laugh for always.When I think of Uncle Pat I think about Family, that is what mattered most to him and what he was best at his immediate family.The original bunch Harry ,Dot and the 5 kids Dee,Barbara,Sonny,Pat and Mike had always been a unique and interesting family, many of us saw each other very seldom if at all outside the immediate bunch but that being said, know who we are and stand close together with the love and respect for our family.I treasure the stories I hold from mom all the way back to Ginny,I treasure the moments shared and the memories I have.I remember they lived and did the best they could with the time allowed.It seems fishing and painting,family, and Shelley mostly come to mind when I think of Uncle Pat.The sorrow is always with us it never can be comforted we just come to accept the things that we cannot change.There are no words deep enough , strong enough, or correct enough to convey how huge a void this is and that I understand and feel this with you it surfaces many memories and people .I regret your loss, I regret your sorrow, pain , and emptiness.Live for him, through him, and with him ,he's not here but he's not gone.He's around.I wish for all of you a sense of calm.

I shared many, many hours of good conversation with Larry at the post office (I started the same year, 1978, and worked on the same crew with him for years), and at our many lunches at Tom's restaurant. He loved to laugh, loved his many postal friends as well as those he met in his neighborhood, loved his cats and his family. He was fiercely independent and a good, reliable friend. He will be missed... Peace and comfort to his whole family.

I don't know how to say goodbye to my longest, dearest friend.

I could write on and on but doing so would be writing about me. I think I;ll keep both of us in my memories.

In the years that Ray and I were friends, he has proven to be an inspiration, a nimble and well informed debate partner, an adventures mate, and a lot of laughs.The first time we met, during a weekend at a small cabin in the Columbia Gorge, Ray regaled us with his boyhood adventures at a horse riding camp. The story was falling down hilarious when he told it the first time and has been a humorous memory many times since. That was only the first time, over subsequent years, Ray told riveting stories of furnace fires, disappearing bar patrons, firearm mishaps, overseas travels, small town recollections, and prisoner custody stories. During our own adventures, Ray proved to be a gifted conversationalist, able to connect with random strangers in ways that I admired and came to emulate. His social skills broadened my world and introduced me to people and places I never would have known about.An avid bicyclist, Ray took me to unfamiliar biking trails that have since become my favorite places to ride. He joined Cycle Oregon and rode around the state well into his late 70s. He was an amazing athlete and carried his abilities with modesty and grace. His accomplishments were something I dreamed about but never matched, and remain something I look upon with deep respect.When relaxing under less demanding circumstances, Ray proved to be a thoughtful and knowledgeable conversationalist. Topics ranged from ancient history, to past wars, current political challenges, and economic ramifications for policies relating to local and national settings. He was insightful and always offered perspectives that were thought provoking.In so many ways, life without Ray will be a lot less fun, less challenging, and too boring. He brought a fresh light to the world and a smile to everyone around him. It won’t be the same without Ray, but its a better world because of him.

We met Ray in 2015, when we bought a condo down the hall from Beth and Ray. At first we were part-timers at the condo, and we always looked forward to seeing Beth and Ray. Ray was so much fun to be with. He told great stories, and he had a wonderful sense of humor. We enjoyed going places with them, sharing dinners, and going to demonstrations together. When we moved in full-time last summer, we were so glad to have them as full-time close neighbors and friends. He was a terrific athlete and good sport; I remember seeing him in the hall with his bike and helmet, and I remember that he was among the first to "take the plunge" when Poet's Beach first opened for river swimming. Later, as he came up against physical limitations, I would run into him in the hall on his scooter with Shayna, as he found "workaround" methods of staying active and involved and positive. He met the challenges of cancer with incredible courage, grace, and positivity. I so miss his warmth, humor, conversation, and kindness already, and I'm grateful we had a chance to get to know him.

Steve Cromer posted on 3/29/21

We met Ray and Beth (and of course Shayna) in the fall of 2015 when we moved to RiverPlace. Besides the friendly greetings of neighbors, we've helped each other with animal care, visited in each others condos where Ray, Beth, and Shayna welcomed our dog, Marlon Brando. Even though Marlon, without invitation, helped himself to Shayna's toys. We have shared meals, adult beverages, movies, a protest march or two, and a lot of great conversation. I was fortunate enough to be in their Arts and Culture Book Group where many great conversations took place. I think what I will miss the most about Ray are the wonderful conversations and the unfailingly warm and friendly greetings he offered. He added to our RiverPlace community and he will be missed.

Janet Voss posted on 3/29/21

I meet Ray for the first time when I moved into my condo at RiverPlace in 2018. He was the first person to introduce himself to me and also introduced his dog, Shayna. He was quite distinctive as he was wearing a hat that was very similar to the one worn by my boyfriend in college. Not long after, I met his wife Beth. Seeing Ray and Shayna in the hallway or walking along the esplanade was always a pleasure and as I introduced him to my friends he would always include introductions to Shayna. He was delight to know and I shall miss him.

I had the good fortune to be a neighbor of Steve and Linda for many years, and can still see Steve's smile and hear the joy in his laugh. Like a diamond with many facets, Steve's love of so much in life was evident by how he embraced so many aspects of it such as travel, cooking, gardening, the arts, music and on and on. But the aspect I witnessed the most was his great love of music, including the Blues. Time after time I would see Steve and Linda at great Blues concerts at big and small venues, often to see groups that only those "in the know" would recognize. Steve's knowledge and love of music was tremendous, and the last time I sat next to him was on a neighbor's lawn to hear a "Covid safe" concert. As always he was smiling and laughing, which is how I will always remember him. I salute your spirit Steve. You will be missed by many.

Alice and I were neighbors for 43 years. We shared many good visits during that time. I have spent hours at her kitchen table and in her garage sitting room, swapping stories and giving and getting neighborhood updates.Years ago she used to come and pick my Concord grapes, to make her famous grape jelly. When getting on a ladder was no longer a good idea, I would pick the grapes and take them to her and she continued to make jelly. The last few years, I have taken her the jelly I made. She was a huge fan of grape jelly and finally convinced me that it really is good.In her ceramic days, she made me a Christmas Wreath photo holder and put a photo of my then, 2 year old in it. It comes out every year and hangs on my tree. It is my most cherished tree ornament.I could tell stories for days and I am left with many great memories of an incredible woman. Alice will be missed by many and I am one of them.

It was just over seven years ago that I was lucky enough to have met Stephen. I can only imagine that during his years as a teacher he perfected his curiosity. I never minded all his questions, it just reminded me that I too often did not have the answers that I should have known ! Stephen never stopped learning. He and Linda were such a beautiful couple to be around. His reliability and dedication to everything he did in life was admirable. I miss greatly his smile, his congeniality, his sincerity. Although his absence has created a void in life for all of us that knew him he has departed leaving us with only positive memories to be cherished forever.

Met Stephen and Linda when we first moved to Portland in 1988 and became fast friends ever since. Enjoyed many things with them, and through them with many others - kayaking, hiking, music, and especially eating. What joy. I cannot remember ever seeing him without a smile on his face except when he was absorbed in a project (woodworking, cooking) when he would just hum away a monotone note for minutes on end clearly enjoying himself and his work. Always made me smile. Oh how I will miss him.

You will be missed like crazy, and remembered every time I search out a tasty dining establishment.

I first me Ben as a third-year student at OHIO University. He had transferred from Everett Community College where he learned basic and intermediate photography from Lloyd Weller. He was a curious, giving and eager young talent ready to learn more about visual journalism. When he returned to OHIO years later for his advanced degree, he was a working professional ready to take his skills to the next level. He was a talented photographer, a solid picture editor and most importantly a friend. When his work at the Oregonian can to an end, he found a way to help others, sometimes with a camera but often with a smile and a story about living with diabetes. Ben was part of a significant era in photojournalism in Biddeford Maine. I have a box of miniature Biddeford picture pages that he and the Biddeford photographic team produced in the paper’s “golden era.” He made them for me to use as a teaching tool at OHIO in the School of Visual Communication. They are a treasured archive of their work.My condolences to Ming and Zanzan. Ben Brink you were a friend to so many people and an eager visual storyteller. Rest in Peace my friend.

He introduced me to my future wife, Anne. He really was curious about anything and everything. As recently as last week he was exploring the idea of what is Truth in a photograph. He's probably cross-examining Eugene Smith right now on what lenses he used to shoot Minamata, one of his favorite photo essays. My condolences to Ming and Zanzan on his loss.

Grace loved her and took care of many of her needs. (Even making sure she had an occasional shower.)I don’t remember Grace without a smile on her beautiful face. I loved her. She loved me. I can see her now as she finally looks upon the face of her Savior who made her who she was. Goodbye for now sweet Grace. ♥️

He was always interesting and had many legal issues resulting from running a successful restaurant.

My condolences to his family, but appreciate his long and eventful life. Brad Cook

I was born in 1980 in Goffstown, NH. I grew up going to Wa Toy regularly with my family. While John was always there to greet every customer who walked in, what always astounded me, was that he knew everyone by name. He knew the regulars and he knew their orders. At the end of 1998, I was getting ready to head off to college, moving out of state for the coming years, and so I wanted my send-off meal to be at my favorite restaurant. When John, and one of his long time staff members, Debbie, found out that I was moving away for a bit they came out and sat with my family and I after we finished our meals. As we were getting ready to leave, John came out with a large to-go box. In it, was about 20 packets of their tea (which I loved), fortune cookies, a gift certificate for when I returned, and an incredibly sweet note, wishing me good luck in life, which was signed by the staff. I still live nearby and I still visit Wa Toy regularly and I think of John often. May he rest well, for he lived a good life, and changed many.

John was a family friend, my Dad chose friends carefully. Looking back it was a friendship built on the shared values of hard work, family and respect for each other as successful small business owners co-existing in a very small place... everyone knows your name and what you are made of. John was unfailingly kind and welcoming in every interaction I had with him. Generosity is another thing that made him unforgettable to myself and my family. I will always remember John.

I knew of John from my brother Paul Locke who worked at Wa Toy back in the 70’s. This was Paul’s first job while he was still in high school. Prayers to John’s family. May he Rip.

I worked at WATOY as a dishwasher in late 1960s. John was a great boss and taught me so much about his culture. I got fired once for skipping work one night to watch a Red Sox world series game. He hired me back the next day. My heart felt condolences to his loving family.

I’m sadden by this news . I will forever have many memories of John & Family at Watoy from hanging out in the kitchen, riding my big wheel in the parking lot to having all our family events there . It’s a place where I grew up as a kid when my father was employed as a cook . Chinese New Years was always the Best times. I’m grateful that I was able to have my kids meet John . He was a wonderful man to everyone ,He will be missed . Our deepest condolences go out to his children & family . John rest easy and say hello to my father Wu for me and I’m sure you two have plenty to catch up on.

John was a really good man and was always so kind and supportive to all of us at the Goffstown Police Department. Hohn always had a kind word for us and always showed his appreciation for us keeping an eye on his restaurant and responding to help when he’d have an occasional rowdy patron. God Speed John !!!!

Mrs. Gloria Bacharach was my next door neighbor when I was growing up. She gave me my first job as a baby sitter for her children. I was fairly young but since my mother was next door and watched for my "signal" if I needed help, I became adept at the responsibility. When I gave up babysitting for other pursuits, Mrs. Bacharach still kept a soft spot in her heart for me. Fast forward now - I'm 21 years old and engaged to marry. A bridal shower was hosted by Gloria in her home for the neighborhood women.I always felt Gloria had a soft spot in her heart for me and my younger sister, Suzanne. Lucky us to be neighbors with the Bacharach Family.

No matter what the family occasion, if John was present I could always look forward to an engaging conversation that made me feel valued as part of the family.

Mrs. Ann Renee posted on 12/14/20

Beauty lies in the life that one has lived but a greater beauty is the hope we have in God’s promises. So with hearts filled with sadness may we remember Gloria as that smiling light, that glimmer of encouragement, that shining example of caring that touched the lives of so many and was much appreciated by all. She will long be remembered, not only by family and friends but also by God who never forgets one's loving acts of kindness. John 5:28,29; Psalm 37:11, 29

The first time that I met Honey was at Maryam Shadbeh-Evans and Dr. John Evans' wedding day in Portland. I was impressed with Honey's ability to organize a catered food event while driving from Eugene to Portland and her attention to detail as she assisted the caterer and other family members set up the most beautiful dinner presentation. Honey's voice in conversation was calm and quiet. By her voice and charming manner and eye contact it was a delight to hear her stories of her childhood and to share mine. No matter how busy or hectic all around, she made me feel as though time could and should slow down with two people sharing their stories. I will miss her presence among us at our large family gatherings. I will miss her sense of curiosity about my work for migrant workers and her advice on balancing work and life. Thanks for sharing her story more fully here and the paper. We were all fortunate to have her as part of our family.

As the first Program Manager of the Gerry B and Marilyn C Cameron Center for Finance Center, I benefited directly from Gerry and Marilyn's generosity and support of the Lundquist College. I am honored to have held that position and greatly appreciate the opportunity. The Camerons personify the ideal alumni - giving back so that others can come forward. Thank you Gerry.

Gerry Cameron was one of the first people I met when I joined the Lundquist College of Business at the University of Oregon. His passion for his alma mater combined with his and Marilyn’s commitment to making the world a better place was truly inspiring. He will be sorely missed by those that knew him well and forever remembered for his commitment to giving back to support our students - with scholarships that enabled them to complete their studies, by his support of our outstanding faculty, and the programs that contributed to an excellent educational experience. He will continue to inspire not only me but future generations by the role model he has left for us to follow.

Maribeth was the preschool teacher for both of my kids, Taylor and Chloe. She was so encouraging and always made sure they felt cared for and loved. I couldn’t have asked for a better preschool teacher for my children. She was always behind the camera and I loved getting pictures from her showing what my kids were up to. I seemed to always run in to her somewhere and we would catch up and swap kid updates. She had such a heart for people. My prayers are with your family.

You were by far the most funniest person I met since I moved to Oregon 34 years ago. I'm going to miss you so much. Your passing is on the same day as my son who would be 13. Say hi to Ryan for me.

The parties, celebrations, art projects, out door activities, her love, care, creativity, generosity and no nonsense😘! We thank you for opening your home to us for the fabulous parties she would throw... the pool, the multi water slide fun house, cotton candy just to name a few of the fun things she thought of and shared! Know she is missed, that you are loved, being prayed for and that we are sending you all a huge hug. Love to you all, the Nicholson Family

My sister Maribeth... If you knew us growing up you know that we were polar opposites and sometimes like oil and water. She was the older sister that hated when I ransacked her closet and take her clothes especially that yellow and black cardigan sweater that she loved. I was also that little sister that would use all her hair spray ( Aqua Net) and lip gloss then fill it up with water so she wouldn’t notice.... I’m sure she knew but still let me do it because I was her little sister. My sister was sometimes a badass doing crazy stuff as a teenage and little did she know I wanted to be a badass just like her too. Maribeth loved taking pictures but didn’t really like being in them...She was such a romantic and loved reading and watching romantic comedies. She had the best smile with those dimples; Not to mention she had this contagious laugh. She laughed when she was happy, sad, and nervous. I’m sure that laughter got her through some pretty tough times. She lived for her 5 children and I know she is looking down on them as their Mommy angel. My best memory of us was when she visited San Diego and we went downtown to do a little sister bonding. At the ended of the night we were dancing on the stage with my other sister Aleen. She was always so poised so it was AWESOME seeing her have so much fun dancing and singing to some Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, and AC/DC. As sisters we would fight, argue, shout, cry, laugh, and LOVE but that’s what we do... We are and will always be sisters. Rest In Peace Ate...

Roger was a friend who is missed. Though not in contact for quite some time, he was considered the best of friends. Much time was spent with him studying at PSU and UofO Dental school. I recall “all-nighters” for organic chem. hearing the neighbors lawn mower the next morning as we finished our studies and were departing to take that final exam. Those habits carried over to Dental School. As dentists doing simple procedures for each other, we’d start at 3:00PM and still be at it at 9:00PM talking and laughing much. His sense of humor and his puns were always enlightening. Roger in essence, was a deep, kind, and thoughtful person often pondering our existence and it’s meaning. He is missed for more than the time since passing, and that will continue. Roger, we hope to see you “on the other side” with or without the RX-7. Heartfelt condolences to all who knew and loved him. Joyce & Eric

I had the pleasure of caring for him on occasion at Regency, he was such a sweet man! He would call me "Bentley" even though he knew my real name was Wendy. Twords the end I'd give him a kiss on the forehead before leaving his room, he would smile and kiss my cheek. We would have icecream "dates" as well. He loved his coke, and his icecream. He is missed GREATLY! 😭

I was so deeply saddened to hear about Kyle. He was a student in my third grade class in the Richmond JMP. I remember a sweet and kind boy with a supportive and involved family. His class was memorable for me because it was the year of 9/11. There was a lot of emotion to start the year and that seemed to spark extra kindness among classmates. My heartfelt condolences go out to Kyle’s family, Cole, Marsha, and Amanda.

Mary Lou went camping with our family (George and Edie Bucholz) year after year and always had her “Misty” with her. Later on, after my parents passed, I would travel to Portland from AK or TX and seldom missed an opportunity to meet her for lunch. we talked on the phone too. She was a dear member of our family.

Fred Weiss was my mentor when I started working for Aries Prepared Meat Company. I couldn't have asked for a kinder: more patient, knowledgeable person to teach me what I needed to know. Fred knew more about meat than anyone, and he loved sharing his knowledge with me, and with anyone else who was smart enough to listen to him. He had some excellent "sayings" that he also liked to share and one that comes to mind is,"You only have one chance to make a good first inpression." He spoke so loveingly about his daughter Elle. He loved his wife Rose and loved to tell me how they met, and how he asked her to marry him. Fred was a humble man, and a good human being. He was one of a kind!

He liked beautiful things.He was very thankful for everything I did for him and thanked me many times. He appreciated the care and the time we spent with him.Fred also told me many times “tell your husband he has a beautiful wife “ ,to which I always answered :”you tell him “. He enjoyed when I read him the story of David and Goliath,David and Bathsheba,the story of creation. I was honored to care for Fred and I will miss him. He will be irreplaceable .

I will always appreciate the enthusiasm at which he greeted us when we would surprise him with a visit. He was accepting and kind to my dad, his cousin Herb when others were not. It was a gift to see the two of them together. Fred will be missed, our time together will not be forgotten. He was a respected and loved man and the care and attention Elle and Sherri gave to him will not be forgotten. I know you will Rest In Peace Freddie Weiss, you were a good man.

I was one of Fred's care givers for over four years and he was like an uncle to me. He loved it when I took him shopping at Fred Meyer and Subway for a tuna sandwich. I'm going to miss the way he always greeted me with a big smile and his positive outlook on life. I feel fortunate to have known Fred and his family over the years. I'm going to miss my visits with him very much. Rest in peace Fred.

Fred was the kindest and gentlest soul I ever knew. He would always greet me with a big smile and an " I'm so glad your here"! Always positive, humble and ready to show his great sense of humour and welcoming spirit. He was one of the good guys and I will miss him terribly

Fred Weiss was a wonderful man. He loved his daughter more than anyone else. His humor and laugh you could count on everytime you saw him. He was devoted, caring, genuine and humble. He was of old school and treated everyone with respect. He will be terribly missed and never to be replaced. Shalom Fred. I love you.

It was so very nice to meet your Fred the thing I will remember the most about you is your kind face I could see it thru your eyes. And of course our first meeting when I landed in your lap I think I was avoiding trippping on the cat. I know you’re a very lucky man to have a daughter that cared so deeply for you that was so apparent in everything she did you always came first and that’s a wonderful trait she must’ve learned her caring from you. Sorry I never got to meet your lovely Rose that you spoke so highly about. I wish you safe passage on your next journey until we meet again may you be surrounded in the warmth of Gods love.

Dear Margie,Well, another year is over and this time we're graduating seniors. I'm going to miss good old Roosevelt High something awful, aren't you? Especially certain people. I sure hope you don't stay in California this summer forever. I'm counting on going to college with you. I hope we can be as good friends at the University as we have been in high school. We have had a lot of fun, haven't we? Staying overnite at each others houses, those college mixers, the junior class (male that is), bicycle riding--just lots and lots of things. I'll never forget. You've sure been a swell friend to have, and I really appreciate your advice and counsel (spelling?) I'm a person that needs understanding, I think, and you've given me that. And I've had the feeling that if all else should fail, I'd still have Margie. Honestly, your name is on every single page of my diary, and that's just an example of how much you mean to me. I hope we can always be friends like we have been. I hope we are for all four years of college. And even if one of us should get married before that I hope we'll remember each other. And even when we're both married and maybe move away, I hope we will always keep in touch with each other. In closing--to the most wonderful pal a gal ever had. Love, JanetA note found in the Roosevelt High School Yearbook of '47-48 "Strenuous Life"

The last few years of Mom's life were spent with Mark and son Vincent. Vincent and Mark were excellent care-givers.Vincent learned the songs that Mom liked and would play them for her even as she became less and less responsive over the years. He would still play them for her and sometimes hold her hand.He played Chubby Checker's Twist & Shout and then played Tumbling Tumbleweeds by The Son's of The Pioneers and held her hand as he had every night for years. It was time for bed.It was time to gather her up for bed, and he realised that she had passed.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQc5gDXQGIs

Hello and condolences on the passing of your mother. I am Vivian Myers youngest daughter. JoAnn is my oldest sister and Carol and Donna have already passed. In our younger days we were a really close family and I also remember outdoor picnics in the yard of Uncle Dick and Aunt Harriet's house. Life changes and family's go there separate ways, but the love and memories always remain. Know that my family shares your loss and wishes you all a good and loving life.

My Christmas card came back last year and I was wondering what had happened to my Aunt. I called down where I last visited her and they wouldn't give me any information. Our cousin Richard Myers and I have been trying to get ahold of one of her children but to no avail. My Mother was Wilma and Richard's dad was Clarence. Our Aunt Betty and Wilma and Clarence have all past away. My phone number is 503-760-0977 if any one wants to get ahold of me. I am so sorry to hear of her passing as I used to stop at her house for many years on my way home before I retired from the City of Portland. She was always outside working or playing with the dog till she went into the place on 60th and Division. She did give us some info when last we visited her. She truly loved my Uncle Dick. I do remember picnic's in the back yard around 4th of July. I have such wonderful memories. Hope to hear from some of or all of my cousins Hugs JoAnn

Paul was always helpful and kind to me. When i was worrying about taking my first promotion exam, he called me into his office and gave me notes that he had kept about the questions he remembered from his promotion exam. It helped me get an idea of what the exam would look like. He told me it was common practice for sergeants to mentor their subordinates and since none of the women on the department had been through that process for sergeant, he felt that I had worked hard and he wanted me to succeed. That was an act of kindness that I have obviously never forgotten.

I still cannot believe he is gone from us. I spoke with Jack late last summer, and while he wasn’t feeling well, he was still actively engaged in bus rapid transit work throughout our industry and we looked forward to getting together to catch up this past fall. It is why this feels so unfair for all of us who knew him as a colleague and loved him as a friend. To me he was a mentor in navigating the often-nuanced world of consulting practices as well as a trusted partner in building our firm’s reputation and BRT business.There are so many fond memories of Jack I will share. The first was in 2006, when we were asked by the Federal Transit Administration to represent U.S. BRT expertise at an international conference in Cuenca, Ecuador. The conference presiding official, the mayor and the dean of the civil engineering school at the university there, took a special liking to Jack, and lobbied him intensely to come help implement his vision for BRT in his city. On the evening before the conference, Ecuador qualified for the knock-out rounds of the World Cup of soccer for the first time in its history. The whole country erupted in celebration as is common with such events. On the final morning of the conference, Jack and I were scheduled to speak, but a revised schedule was circulated that morning, with a two-hour “coffee break” inserted between my panel before and Jack’s panel after said break. The new break was designed to allow the conference attendees to watch the game Ecuador had against Germany that morning. All of the panelists were also issued Ecuador national team jerseys, and we proudly wore them as we speak. I still have mine to this day and I am certain Jack had his.My other memory was of another international trip, this time as invited speakers at another international conference in Belfast, Northern Ireland. I was scheduled to be the conference chairman, meaning I would introduce panelists and moderate questions from the audience. But then I came down with a case of laryngitis during the trip over! Jack and several of our colleagues insisted that I follow through, and “that it wasn’t that bad,” though I could barely speak. There was Jack in the first or second row center, encouraging me, giving me tea and honey and slipping me what I believe to be a hot toddy during the lunch break at the pub across the street. All of it did make me feel better, and the audience cut me some slack and gave me encouragement, even though at times they could barely hear me – all of it encouraged first and foremost by Jack and our Parsons Brinckerhoff colleagues on both sides of the Pond.These are just some of many memories, of course. Our time together became fewer between as we both got busier thanks to our successes, and lately, our illnesses. But all of them were so simultaneously fun, enlightening and rewarding. Because he treated me like family, I am sure his family misses him dearly, even more so now that he is not here. I certainly do. But our memories and love for him, and his reputation and the deep respect he had in our industry, remain. I am grateful we at least have that, and that he is at peace with no more struggle and pain.

Albert, Yes, I will miss such a kind engaging friend as Al. A man, a gentleman, along with being respectful and open to all.

I only experienced the ending years, but I saw a runner, paddler, team mate and captain, a host, a lover, a boat captain, a good conversationalist and listener, a friend to many many people. We will miss him, especially February 4th. My love to Al's family and all his friends.Sue Thornton

Kris was a vibrant loving person and her spirit will live on in our memories of her - her charm, her wit and the closeness she shared with her friends and family. I loved sharing my recipes with her, she was a talented cook! and she often put her own spin on them - and the results were always fabulous! I will miss talking to her about old rock bands that we used to know, and sharing the surprises of a life lived well loved. She will be dearly missed by all. My love goes out to all.

I had the privilege to coach the David/Charles team as it was coming into being in the early 2000's. I looked forward to every meeting with the two of them. Charles was always positive, energetic, thoughtful, well-spoken, clearly brilliant; most importantly he welcomed you with that huge smile and his enveloping warm friendship. His life was a great gift for the (too short) time he was with us and he will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and with David.

Dear Esther and Jim,I remember my moments with Andrew when we were kids as well as if it were yesterday. I think fondly of meeting Andrew in gymnastics camp, where I was delighted to find a fellow half Asian friend. I was struck by Andrew's genuine love for life and thoughtful nature. I look back fondly at a playdate we had at your house where he introduced me to his guinea pigs and we floated paper boats down the stream running alongside the sidewalk. I also recall a trip our families took to Calistoga, where I was able to spend more time with Andrew. I am so sorry for your loss, but I hope you find comfort in the fact that Andrew will be remembered by the people he impacted forever. -Kelsey Rasmussen

I am sending love to Andrew's family. He was known for his incredible sense of humor. I often find myself telling stories of the funny things he did throughout high school and college, and the impression of freedom that he has truly left on those around him. He was very kind, and part of that kindness showed in his constant desire to make others laugh.

Dear Jim and Esther: words cannot express my profound sadness for you and Andrew. Although we haven’t met lately, the memories are alive of the times we spent together at the Ranch in Healdsburg.

I will think often of you and keep you in my prayers and looking forward to seeing you soon. Love, Chau.

We stood shoulder to shoulder and hand in hand as we said farewell to our dear Uncle Albert. It was a beautiful day at Willamette National and as we listened to Taps and the wonderful military salute and the folding of our American flay, and Father’s beautiful words, I knew that although we lost a magnificent mind, a true scholar, an individual with a strong faith, a lover of beauty and books and a very special Uncle that the lessons he taught me are more valuable than any precious gem. You will be missed by us all. God bless your soul as you begin your new life in eternity. We will meet againAnd such a strong faith

Julie Rigotti Cettina posted on 10/15/19

Today my dearly-loved Godfather, and Uncle Albert, will be laid to rest. Words cannot express the depth of emotion in my heart. As we say farewell, I will find comfort in the words, "May the choirs of angels come to greet you. May they lead you to Paradise. May the Lord enfold you in His mercy. May you find eternal life." Godspeed, Uncle Albert!

I owe a lot to Al Cereghino. He was not only a professor at the U. of P. where I graduated, but a mentor and friend. I have told many that he was the smartest person I every knew. I know he is thought of as a Renaissance man, and that fits. My brief connection with his Executive Theater program was a significant contributor to the start of my trial consulting career, as the firm that hired me required that experience. I was one of the lucky ones who knew Al Cereghino.

Rita Johnson posted on 10/7/19

He was one of the “coolest” & intriguing persons I’ve ever met. Very inspirational & a wealth of knowledge. A sunny disposition that would rub off on a person instantly. It was a honor to know him even tho brief, in the grand scheme of life. I met him in Lake Oswego. He lived directly below me. A remarkable handsome man who seemed to be a “step above it all” and one I claim in my personal “forever friend club”.He is a memorable individual. My thoughts and condolences to all family and I especially enjoyed meeting his nieces, Christina & Linda. May his good memories fill the holes in your hearts while he is gone on another great adventure.

Rita Rigotti Magionos posted on 10/6/19

So long for now

Christina Utter posted on 10/6/19

My Mom, Flora Cereghino Rigotti, had 3 siblings. Sophie, Stella and my “Uncle Albert”. For as long as I can remember, Uncle Albert helped nurture my imagination, creativity and curiosity. He would often leave me with more questions than answers, but that was meant to make me think. Since 2004, I had more time to reflect with Uncle Albert. Always the teacher, he would discuss the ‘art of slow looking’ at beauty; whether it be art, music, sculpture or the finest of details in faces. It’s difficult to say Goodbye. So rather like HYMN, let me say ‘so long for now’.

I am so sad to have just read that Sam passed away this past February. He was only 6 months older than me. Sam was most important to me during our high school years though he attended Lincoln and I attended Washington. The B'nai Brith in South Portland was where we met in our various activities. We hadn't seen each other for a long time, then finally did get together several years ago and managed to keep in touch. As an amateur genealogist, I have done his tree. May he rest in peace.

I cannot state as eloquently the beautiful words Linda used to describe her Mom, my Aunt. Those words captured her love and generosity to all she loved or met. She was more than generous to me over the years offering nonjudgmental support and love. I remember her phone calls to our childhood home when would try to determine if my sister Kathy or I had answered the phone. So to cover both possibilities she combined both names and said “Clathy?” There are too many wonderful memories to mention but suffice it to say, all will remain in my mind and heart. Though we were separated by many miles, I thought of you often, spoke to you until you were unable to speak and missed having you near. I will always remember your kindness and love. I will miss you.

Faye's house was always the home for her granddaughter, Katelynn, and I to have fun. Be it from 1st graders playing dress up in the basement while drinking seltzer water, to college students sanding down and repainting thrift-store furniture with Faye's tools. Through her open heart and the encouragement of imagination, some of my happiest memories are involved with G-ma Faye. With her wisdom, wit, and love, I'm confident she's watching over her family as the proud matriarch and strong woman she was and continues to be forever in our hearts. My condolences and prayers go out to the beautiful family Faye protected, guided, and raised.

I worked indirectly with Dieter through much of my early career in Electrical Engineering, first at Lattice Semiconductor in the mid 1980's, and at Sharp Microelectronics, from 1988-1996. He was always a pleasant, witty person. Though I didn't work with him directly very much, I always had a lot of respect and admiration for him. I remember at Lattice, he was head of the Digital Signal Processing team, DSP for short, and we used to refer to it with the alternate name of "Dieter Spaderna Products". I was sorry to hear of his passing at a relatively young age, and express condolences to the dear family he leaves behind.

It's in reading obituaries that we really find out about people's lives, and it's with the deepest regret that I did'nt really know grandma that well while she was on the face of the earth. Rest easy on the right hand of god, grandma. You're probably up there cooking Easter dinner and goodies for everybody!

Hello Mr. and Mrs Craig I don’t know if you remember me but my name is Ivan Anthony Jaramillo. I used to go to ventura park with Isaiah. I had no idea what had happened to Isaiah until just recently checking my facebook. I’m so sorry for your loss. Isaiah was one of my bestfriends back in the days. He was one if the few people who would actually talk to me. He is also one of the reasons I joined the marine corps. We used to talk about the military a lot. He would tell me about how his brother is a marine and how cool he was. Those were good times. My prayers go out to you. I wish you well.

I went to school with Tom Lunt and still think about him from time to time. He and Robert Mahaffey came to Montana to visit me some years ago and we had a wonderful time. Tom Lunt was one of the most entertaining and brilliant men I ever knew. I admired him greatly, particularly the way in which he dealt with his health issues in the latter part of his life. I had the occasion to spend time with him and Portland and always loved watching how well loved his pets, both domestic and wild, were. He was an extraordinary highly sensitive man. Some of my fondest memories of my four years at Lewis and Clark College include times spent with Tom Lunt. I am grateful for the privilege of having enjoyed his friendship for all those many years. I miss him still.

Chuck was my longtime friend, colleague and sometime co-conspirator. Chuck passed away in Mexico while on vacation with Robin. They were celebrating their 28 Anniversary.For those of you who did not know, Chuck had many health problems that he has been managing. Sometimes well and other times not well.Here is what I know about my friend Chuck.He served in the Army during the Viet Nam era, though not in a war zone. He was a member of Local 189 of AFSCME Council 75 for 28 years. He Served as President of Local 189 for 8 years, served on the Council 75 Executive Board, Chaired the Political Action Committee for 8 years during part of my tenure at AFSCME as the Political and Legislative Director. He was Chair of the local SubChapter of the AFSCME Retirees. He was an avid bowler, card and game player, had a remarkable memory for all things historic and..., was a spectacular Chair and parliamentarian, he loved good food, rare scotch, good whiskey and wanted his steaks Blood Red and barely warm. He was a sing-along person to any song he knew, loved Musicals, adored his wife Robin and could almost always make me mad as hell and laugh in the same 5-minute window. We shared our distaste for politicians with no moral compass or commitment to a cause, He simply had no time for people and elected leaders who were not altruistic. He always stood up for the right thing, like it or not!He was way too young, just 67 years old. Too young to be gone from all of us who loved and cared about him. We had many more card games to play, many more dinners to enjoy and many more laughs to have and plots to make for those on our joint list. Not long but well deserved, good and bad.Rest well my friend your duty here is done. Those of us who mourn will watch over your family and our friend Robin.

To the family and friends, I am very sorry to here of the loss of your loved one. Where can we receive comfort when we grieve? 2Corinthians 1:3,4 in the Bible says: " Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God." God comforts us by letting us know what happens to our loved ones when they die and gives us hope that hey will be brought back to life. To see proof of this from your Bible ask any one of Jehovah's Witnesses to show you. Also you can see a short vedio "Is There Hope for the Dead?" https://www.jw.org/finder?srcid=share&prefer=content&applanguage=E&locale=en&item=pub-imv_4_VIDEO&docid=1011214

So sorry to read about the passing of Telsa. Through my many years of friendship with Freddie, and even though I may not have personally met you, I feel I know the whole family. I always admired how devoted Telsa was to Freddie... even when Freddie rebelled against her sister's advice (like cleaning the house or going to the doctor). I always felt good being around Telsa as she was so easy to talk to and so giving of herself. I am certain your beautiful memories of your Mom, Grandma, great-grandma and friend will keep her alive in your heart.

Al loved coming to Patton Middle School (OR) because he so much enjoyed interacting with two particular teachers, one especially, who helped to develop the Holocaust unit based around study of "The Diary of Anne Frank." The 8th graders always entered artwork for the Sala Kryszek Art & Writing Contest. As you can see, the student who did this wonderful work found her inspiration in Al.

I am proud to say that Al was a friend of mine. I have known him for many years. Many years back now I went to do a video history with Al. He invited me to lunch (as did all the Survivors I interviewed) and I recall being a little nervous, knowing Al was vegetarian (actually vegan). I hoped I would be able to eat everything. Well, I couldn't stop eating it was so delicious.Al Wiener was a kind man, a man who connected so easily with students when he went to schools to give a talk. Al told me of a young Muslim girl who came up to him after his talk. She told Al he would probably hate her as she was a Muslim and he, a Jew. Al's response was that he would not hate her, could not hate her. You cannot be blamed for anything your ancestors did. They hugged.Al was indeed, a mensch.

Dear Diane and Rick. My heart is heavy as I have just learned of Jared's death. I first met Jared when he and Erik were first dating, in Arkansas. Eventually, they moved west and I moved east, but we continued to cross paths and make time to catch up. Jared was a remarkable man and, as evidenced by the many comments here, had a tremendously positive impact on the world around him. My deepest condolences to you and your family. Your in my thoughts and prayers.

It was a privilege and honor to work and share so much of my life with a partner like Bill. He was a cops cop, courageous, calm and controlled under extreme circumstances. Bill was a quiet, humble, warrior with a contagious smile and a real prankster. He treated all with respect and dignity, even those at the lowest points in their lives. Bill's work ethic was unmatched, he at one point in his career was averaging 75 felony arrests a month and was awarded for his valor under fire on more than one occasion. He had huge impact on the heroin and cocaine distribution networks in the Portland Metro area and this world is a better place because of him. Bill was like a brother and always had my back, he was a true protector, loyal, strong and intelligent. Miss You Brother, Godspeed, Dirk

Dirk Anderson posted on 9/20/18

Bill was a great partner in the years I worked with him at the Portland Police Bureau and Oregon Department of Justice. He was a private and humble man,whom displayed great courage, calm and control in life and death situations and had a contagious smile and fantastic sense of humor. Bill was like a brother to me and it was a privilege and honor to share so much of my life with this man of integrity, who had my back for so many years. The world is a better place because of Bill and his contributions. He leaves behind a family that he so loved and spoke so proudly about. Take Care my Friend, Love you brother, God Speed, Dirk

I thought of him every year on his birthday and always planned to send a card. I’m sorry I didn’t get it sent. His death is a great loss to our whole community but my heart and prayers go out to the family. The loss of a son, husband, father or brother is forever felt. We know that loss firsthand.

I was an attorney in Portland who had a couple of cases in which Mike had prior involvement. He was extremely helpful in helping me understand the nature of the issues he handled as it related to the matters on which I was working. He gave me his time and helped me obtain files to assist me with my understanding of the cases. He had a great attitude about helping me and gave his time willingly and pleasantly. I will always remember him for this. He was a great guy who helped me very much. There weren't too many other attorneys who would have gotten so personally involved with such a nice manner as he did when he helped me.

I met Mike when we started law school together in 1977. I was anxious and knew no one in Eugene. From the first week I feel into a group with Mike and a few others and immedietaly felt at home. Mike became a close friend for the year I spent there (he continued, I did not), and we continued that friendship the next few years with golf and an occasional beer although not near as frequently as I would have wished. Quite simply Mike was one of the nicest people I have ever met. He smiled often and I never remember him saying a bad word about anyone. If he was ever in a bad mood I don't recall it. I left Oregon in 1997 and we did not connect often but he was remarkable in the true sense of that word and a very important person in my life. I give my thoughts and love to his family and friends. I met his father, mother and sisters at his parent's house in Portland and remember them fondly. They had much to be proud of in Mike. And while I only got to meet Keri and David and never met Ariele and Max I can only imagine what a treasure it must have been to have been able to spend so much of life with him. Time will replace the pain with the warm memories of family words will be inadequate to express. I am envious of the thie you shared and will miss my friend.Dan Bickmore

Marty was the real scungili. He was the don of Hawthorne in the late 90's and 2000s. We were close friends, and we visited him at his apartment often. "You gotta rob!" "Job, what job? where?" and "I like a little soup with my sandwich" were some of his best catch phrases. He actually gave me his little red car once, when I was down and out in Ptown because he had bought a new ride. Marty was a great man. His laugh will echo in mind forever.

I took Phenomenology from Graham in the early 70's and later became his poet drinking friend. He never got over my paper on Yoko Ono to which he saw me coming @ Sak's Front Avenue w/ friends ..he threw his wine glass down and comically yelled Yoko Ono is not a phenomenonologist! I lived across the street from him in the early 90's, we read poetry together @ Elliot Bay bookshop and 23rd Avenue Books, but Powell's was too cool to let us read however Walt Curtis had us on his KBOO show. He was a great mentor and humble genius, we had a blast deconstructing a serious scrabble game one afternoon @ his block party with so much hilarity people asked if we were drunk or stoned...it was always with him-..filled with the spirit. We held a vigil the night Billy Rancher died at Good Sam, Graham was like that, I lost track of him except some e-mails, Matt Ecberg told me about his passing today April 7 ..Farewell to a King of Kindness.

He was a best friend in 4th-6th grade til he moved from Brooklyn to VT – I mostly remember playing catch with him endlessly and talking baseball. Maybe spoke to him once or twice in the following year but not after that (pre-social media life). Was looking him up to see what he was up to 30+ years later...didn't imagine this. Wish I could have reconnected, from the little I can glean about him from this, seems like we would have gotten along. My best to all who knew him, and to Chris...who I called "Moon the slick dude" for some reason (We were in 6th grade)...sorry we never did get to hang again.

Please accept my condolences. Terry was an interesting man and always willing to listen. I enjoyed my trip out to see him in Oregon, he was a gracious host. Excellent pilot! Think about him and his mother when passing through Willow Springs.

Terry and Dean, in a big way, started me on my Mazama journey. It was a snowshoeing / snow camp trip. After snowshoeing into our camp and setting up our tent, I walked over to a veiwpoint where Mt Hood was peaking through the clouds. Terry and Dean were standing there and pointed out the climbing route to me. They mentioned something about a cornice. I, timidly, as I knew I was in the presence of two master climbers, asked what a cornice was? They looked at each other and then me and told me I have to take Basic School. Dean got me through Basic and Terry got me up my first climb. What a laugh Terry had. What a look, with his perfect hair and tucked in wool shirts and felt hat. Thank you Terry for all the great great times, the great stories, the wisdom, the commraderie and adventures. You will always be on the trail and mountains with me. LOVEmax

I hiked and rambled with Terry for many years. He is not forgotten and he will be missed.

So sad. Please accept my condolences. Terry was just such a constant presence for so long doing Street Rambles. I always got a kick out of him showing up in what looked like "street clothes"...but boy could he step out! He even offered to help my cousin Jim, who has some hiking challenges, climb a glaciated peak so he could be a Mazama. He was so happy to be a grandpa...wondered what gift to give Baby. I suggested an engraved baby cup...he went right out and got one!

Terry and I talked about his flying adventures on the rambles and discovered that he flew into my small town of Beatrice,NE. He really loved talking about flying and I was a grateful listener....we always smiled and nodded about the Beatrice landing zone.

To the family and friends, I am very sorry to here of the lost of your loved one. In the Bible at 2Corinthians 1:3,4 it says: " Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God." God comforts us by his word the Bible.In it he explains why we have sickness and death and how he will undue all the problems we see in the world today and bring our loved ones back to life. If you would like free Bible studies to bring you comfort, you may ask any one of Jehovah's Witnesses to make arrangements.

I first met Arne in the late 70s when I purchased my first amazing watercolor from a gallery at the Sheritan Hotel, airport in Portland. I even had him paint a portrait for a gift to my folks, my mother loved his work too. She was a watercolor artist.I have many of Arne's early works and over the years he modified his style. I will forever remember his humor and warmth and a great community person. Arne has impacted the lives of so many through his work, and the kind of person he was, I really miss his presence in a room.

Everything you have done and achieved you did it knowing the end result. As a kid and still as an adult. I often find myself doing things and using the general knowledge you gave to me.

Christopher was my nephew. Unfortunately, we lost touch over the years, but I remember his love for "Star Wars" and baseball (he was of course a Yankees fan; I am Red Sox). He certainly had his father's intellect. I remember a very special day when Ted's and my father baptized him in the nursing home where our father spent his final years. I will of course pray for his soul and for the comfort of his mother Ronny and of those whose lives he touched.

I already posted this but I wanted to share it here too:I've been thinking a lot about my friend Greg. I have a million stories, most of which involve his amazing laugh, but one that illustrates what a standup guy he was is this. When I was trying to plan Graeme's 40th birthday party, I wanted to do a brew tour on a bus. Literally the last three days up to the party date, I kept calling the guy who I had booked to drive the bus, and he kept putting me off about where he would pick people up, what time, etc. Then, the night before the brew tour, he canceled!!! Greg offered, quite seriously, to rent a limo or a small bus and be the leader of his own brew tour. Because Graeme was on call and couldn't really drink that much anyway, we didn't go ahead with that idea – but the very idea that he was willing and happy to do such a thing for my man's birthday goes to show what a special friend he was. And holy shit, would that have been an amazing brew tour. Although I wonder if the beers would've been as fantastic as his homebrews. I will never forget you, Greg. Rest easy. We love you.

I worked with Tony @ Metro Metals for almost 9yrs. I got hired in order for him to retire in 2 years. He retired 10 years later. I will always remember him being my first real friend in Oregon. In 2008 Jerry Seinfeld was coming out here to do his stand up. I commented to Tony how I wanted to go but my wife would be out of town. Next thing I know he is on line buying 8 tickets for me him and all his kids. Him and Ava feel asleep during the show. He was also like a father figure to me and gave me advice about my two kids that I will always use. Words can not explain how badly Tony will be missed. I keep waiting for him to call me laughing and telling me we are even for the April fools joke I played on him back in 09. Love you Tony!!

I won't be the first to say: Tony had a GREAT SMILE !!! I met Tony at St. Philip Neri when we were kids. I'm a couple years older, but he liked hanging out with the big kids. I would run into Tony at Metro Metals many years later, and reminisce about our " Good Old Days " playing sports at Abernathy and flirting with the pretty girls. Tony was always a HANDSOME Man and girls loved him, as I remember. Maybe that was the reason that I wanted to hang out with him. As many of you have already mentioned, this comes a sad shock. I wish that I would have spent more time with Tony when I had the opportunity. My last memory was of him at MM and we talked about going to a Ducks game with beer and Hot Dogs. I MISS YOU Tony. God Bless You My Friend.

Reggie added such quality to my life: always kind words, always appreciation, always tried to make me laugh or make me dance (and succeeded). Our bond was tight, like that of brothers. I will miss him everyday, as I remember his shouts of "Hey Rick!" as he got my attention and would start to dance and spin around with that big, beautiful smile on his face, knowing how much I loved those moves of his. And no one has called me a "piece of trash" as often and as lovingly as he did. He was the perfect heel to have in my life. We operated on a strange level, indeed. No one will ever take his place. I'll never forget you, brother!

Whenever any of us feels alone, sad or is having a solo dance party in our apartments...his spirit will walk into the room and smile and say ‘I’m here’. To see this man smile was to witness a bouyant radiation and that is the bit I will lock safe in this box of memories. That damn smile and ‘how you doin?’

Kristen Olsen’sam posted on 2/10/18

I will say I didn’t know him that well, but this man smiled and it radiated. It is apparent how bright by how many people, like me, were so affected by that bouyant light...that they want to at least say thank you to life for putting him in my path. I can say that his spirit seems like it will keep singing to all of us. When we are alone, when we have a solo dance party in our apartments or when we feel sad. He will be there dancing and singing and shadowing all of us.

Reggie, I met you back in 2003, which means I have known you over half the time I've lived in Portland. We bonded over a mutual love of Skinny Puppy. The one time I got to spin a night with you was a blast. My regret is there will be no more when there should have been many more nights of being your partner in making people dance.I'll miss randomly running into you around town and seeing your warm smile and usually getting a hug out of you. Enjoy exploring the universe since you are no longer an earth-bound spirit. Say "hi" to Jhonn Balance, Sleazy, the Duck, Bowie, Prince, and MJ when you find them. <3

From the beginning I admired Reggie and wanted to be his friend since we first met, even from our first interactions which were as simple as him ringing up my lunch at Whole Foods when I worked nearby. Then when I started going to Lovecraft I immediately recognized his face. One night I saw him going around collecting empty glasses and returning them to the bar. I asked if he worked there, and he said "No, I'm just helping them out. They're my homies." This guy is solid! Soon I had more interactions with him while attending mutual friends' DJ events and we would gush with excitement over our share interests, like wrestling, horror movies, music, video games, and retro pop culture in general. When I was new to the community, I had a lot of social anxiety and difficulty making friends. Then Reggie, along with friends Aurora and Rick, took me in and made me feel welcome and at home. We would attend each others DJ nights and have a blast requesting and playing songs that would put us in our happy place and dance like the world was ours. We had just as much fun DJing together. We agreed that Return of the Living Dead had the perfect soundtrack, and I will always spin that record in his honor. Away from the dance floor we watched so many movies together that we loved. We motivated each other to write a screenplay together and our collaboration is still in progress. We would message and call each other very late at night with our new ideas. We had meetups with our laptops to write the story and exchange notes, often lasting hours, filled with laughter and excitement. We even compiled a list of songs for our soundtrack, filled with retro deep cuts. Another area where Reggie mesmerized us was his stage presence at many variety shows. He made me a part of a couple of his performances at a variety show hosted by his soon-to-be girlfriend and soulmate, Pamela. I was a henchman for his Joker monologue, and Pugsley Addams for his Gomez Addams as Prince performance. When we found time to talk about life and be real with each other, he would call me one of his best friends, and I reciprocated that right back. He knew I would listen to him, and he would listen to me. He would not allow me to doubt myself, and I will carry that part of our friendship with me forever. Hopefully I can give and share that part with my current and future friends and loved ones that I hold dear.

What an honor to have known Al. As the first and longest living Jewish residents of Hillsboro, Or, it was a privilege to have him as a part of the community. Al, was always inviting, sharing and caring for many, with a nice word to say to all - together with his wife Carol, may she live and be well. May his soul have an uprising.

Graham was my philosophy professor in the late 70s early 80s. His teaching style was creative and skillful. I admired him as a person, too. Kind and loving. He served on my Master's Thesis committee and provided useful, intelligent, supportive guidance. So sad to know he is no longer with us. Condolence to his family and loved ones. May he rest in eternal peace.

I owe a lot to Al. He was the professor who taught me how to exam patients, he gave me my first job, and he became a friend for the rest of my career in optometry. I loved his enthusiasm for his work. Each patient was treated as special and the only person who mattered, while he was with them. He taught me that I would give the best care for each patient, if I got to know them and cared for them. Never in a rush, the quality of his patient care was exceptional.I will miss Al, but the examples he gave me, I pass on to the students I continue to teach. I'm so sorry for his passing, but so thankful for what he left us.

I have such fond memories of Dr. Al Furie, a beloved professor. He inspired many many budding doctors with his command of and love for eye disease. This was long ago when the disease area was not the main focus of optometry. We all lovingly smiled when he repeatedly struggled with difficult pronunciation of "Retinoschisis" or when he hurriedly bustled down the corridor juggling multiple slide carousels, books, notebooks, and lecture notes, all needed for his lectures. Always a gentle kind and courteous professor. RIP, he will live on in the fond memories of many many eye docs.

On our first meeting, JoAnn had invited me to her family's house and I was struck by how kind, warm hearted and interesting Al was. I was so fortunate to know him and he was always a generous and wonderful man. The world is missing a bright star. With love, Sharon

When someone you love becomes a memory, those memories become a blessing.I have 65 years of memories of my oldest big brother, and I have chosen to only remember the fun times. He called me "Fatty Ass", I called him "Fatty Nose". Those were the words he and I said to each other during his 1st phone call from the Naval Hospital in the Phillippines. He was hospitalized well over a year before he was stable to send stateside. He was very severally wounded in Nam within his first few months there. Paul had a strong core & personality, that and 1000's of prayers brought him through. When he walked into a room, he had a presence you could not help but notice, and when he hugged you, you felt safe and loved. I am blessed to call him "my brother". Love always to you Fatty Nose.

Living on the other coast from Chris and Michelle, we never had the opportunity to spend much quality time with Michelle. Having held Chris as a baby we know that Michelle had to be a very special person to capture his heart. And that she did!!!Having them visit the east coast several times over the years we did get to meet Michelle but it wasn’t until we made a trip to Portland and visited with them for four or five days, did we really get to know her. Michelle had a special way (as did Chris) to make us feel so very welcome and they spent the entire visit chauffeuring us all throughp the area. We had the opportunity to meet all their family and friends. She touched many lives and will be greatly missed.

I am at a loss. I just read the news. Chris was one of my favorite Pemi pals. The summer of 1992 and 1994 were special events. The laughs we had those years as counselors. He had the best wit. And he helped me be a better coach. My heart is broken.

Derrick Bell III. posted on 1/9/18

I knew Chris from visits to Pemi. He was younger then I am, but I thought he was a very nice person. I saw him pitch the Pemi Counselor's to victory, during a counselor baseball game vs. Mooseilauke in 1990. Years later Mooseilauke Counselors refused to play Pemi Counselor's in baseball. Because they didn't want to face Chris. I also remember two of his classmates from Brattleboro Vt. who works as cocktail waitresses in Harvard Square. They spoke highly of Chris, and they also knew Phil Bixby.

Patrick was my friend for nearly 50 years. Though time passed when we were apart, getting together was a validation of the strength of friendship as if no time was ever lost. A time ago I had been able to travel to Australia with him and met his parents, his brother and sister, and many of his admiring friends. He was a world-class athlete who was always humble about his accomplishments but was honored for them in Australia and England and probably wherever Rugby will be played. He was a fine caring teacher and he was good family man. He will always be one of my heroes. I will miss him very much but know his memory will last forever. To Deloris and Mandy and all the rest of his extended family I will send my sympathy but know he was a great man who had a long full and satisfying life. I know Patrick would not have asked for more.

My heart goes out to all who knew and loved Alex. I met him as a student in a class, and always looked forward to what he would add to our conversations--about American cultures and identities, each person's sense of who they are and how the world looks and its impacts and promises-- and had the real pleasure of talking with Alex about his own education, insights, and experience as he and I put an American Studies major together for him, looking forward to his BA, but really all the things he might say, make, and do just because they were worth attending to. I admired his effort and willingness to see how all he did, and all he thought, belonged together. He was a vivid, singular and inspiring person. I will miss him and wish him peace. --UW advisor and teacher, Frieda Knobloch

We wanted to share our condolences with Carol’s family. It is never easy to have to say goodbye to a loved one. The pain of loss can be unbearable. Our Creator promises us that one day this pain will be just a memory. That beautiful promise can be found at Revelation 21:3,4. Our pain and suffering will be a thing of the past, and we can cry tears of joy as we welcome back the ones that we love so much. We hope you find comfort in those promises.

Ive been missing our deep talks, you randomly educating me about some kind of history, taking maggie on a walk, laurelhurst, everything. You never ever once stopped having my back and i cant thank you enough. I love you so much Alexander and i miss you. I know ill see you soon someday.

Chris was a wonderful guy, smart with a good sense of humor and great disposition. I played baseball with him for a couple of years in college, and remember one time when we had a late class and couldn't ride on the team bus, so instead Chris drove us to the game in his car. About midway there he noticed he was low on gas, and neither of us had any cash. We spent about 10 minutes going through the cushions in the car, turned up 77 cents, and were able to get enough gas to make it to the game. All done with a smile on his face and good humor.Happy to have had him as a friend, and I am so sorry to hear he has passed. He will be missed.

My heart aches for the Littell family to lose in death your precious loved one Boyd, way too soon. Words are so limited that can give comfort, so I would like to share with you beautiful scripture where our heavenly Father, Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. Psalm 34:18None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection. Our savior, Jesus, promises us: John 6: 40; "For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day".Jesus comforts us at: John 5: 28; "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out..." John 11:23-25; "Jesus said to her: "I am the resurrection and the life." The one who exercises faith in me, even tho he dies, will come to life." I pray that Jesus's promise to reunite us with our loved ones on resurrection day will carry you through the difficult days ahead and gradually replace your tears of grief with tears of Joy as you reflect on your precious memories of happier times with Boyd. The family is in my prayers and I offer my heartfelt condolences.

BEAN FIELDS! That was the first thought that came to me as I began to reflect on memories with Mom. Each summer beginning at age 6 for me, after school let out for the summer mom would pack up us kids and head to the berry and bean fields to earn money for the new years school clothes. We camped in tents and later stayed in small cabins. Yup, up at 6am and worked until 6pm then Mom would somehow manage to cook up the best supper on a coleman gas cook stove, we still had some energy to play for and hour then would bath in a wash tub and head to bed. Life was simple and our family was happy...those were good days! Rest well Mom!

Your mother meant a great deal to me. She had a profound influence over my life and the lives of many many others. I have turned to my piano to express my sadness and to honor your mother. Been playing a lot these past few days. For some reason I've been drawn to a sweet piano arrangement of Faure''s Pavanne (opus50). I'm not sure why. I think maybe because it sounds sweet and sad at the same time. With deep love to you three. May you find comfort in each other during this time of great sorrow. Love, Ann McDermott

Sitting outside on our patio and watching the stars just yakking about about our lives. My Mom is just turning 85 years old tomorrow and with your precious Dad at 100 years young it made me think and yes Mr. Lakefish I can do this too Bless you and Thank you for being our gracious, kind, friendly neighbor Mom and I love you very much .

Used to sit outside the coffee shop on 45th and Belmont, me with my nose in a book and Marty asking "how long you been out". hehehe,I guess that's about all people do in prison is read, It was ok though, as we hit it off well enough. First time I was ever aware of meeting a POW from WWII or any war. I listened an respected his stories, but wouldn't want his nightmares. God Bless, Martino

Tried calling Lenny yesterday on Yom Kippur and was puzzled his number was disconnected. So, so sorry to hear of his passing. First met Lenny 49 years ago.We were roommates and friends at the UofO and stayed in touch through the years. Lenny visited with me in Tahoe a handful of times, we saw dozens of Duck games -- traveled together more than once. He was so loyal to Grand & Benedicts for over 30 years (maybe 40?). And they to him. Don't see that kind of relationship too often these days.So many great Lenny stories -- sorry none come to mind right now, though. Forgive me, it's very sad news. Condolences and blessings to Arthur, Emilie and Barbara -- and all who knew him.Too soon, Lenny, too soon. Lenny, say hi and thanks to your parents up there. (Still remember that Thanksgiving spent at their house, playin' football at the park w/ you and Arthur. (Still think it should have been "Balk's Bootery"! Say hi to mine, too.So glad we each got to meet the other's mother and father.RIP -- Lenny, you'll always be remembered. One of a kind.

LET ME TELL YOU A LITTLE ABOUT MY FRIEND. SHE WAS MY STOP AND SMELL THE ROSES FRIEND. WE SPENT MANY AN HOUR LISTENING TO THE SYMPHONY, SHARED MORE MEALS THAN I CAN COUNT, COCKTAILS-SOMETIMES A LITTLE TOO MUCH AND SPENT EVERY BIRTHDAY TOGETHER FOR OVER A DECADE. SHE WAS GENEROUS WITH HER TIME, HER MONEY AND HER SPIRIT. DEB WAS THE OLDER SISTER I NEVER HAD. IF SOMEONE WAS IN NEED, SHE WOULD ALWAYS JUMP IN AND HELP.SPENT FAR TOO MANY HOURS TOGETHER IN DOCTOR'S OFFICES. PARKINSON'S, FOR HER, BEGAN IN HER LITTLE FINGER. THIS UGLY DISEASE SLOWLY SAPPED THE LIFE FROM THIS DYNAMIC, ENERGETIC BALL OF ENTHUSIASM. THEY SAY ALTZHEIMERS IS THE LONG GOODBYE, WELL SO IS PARKINSONS.DEB, YOU MEANT SO MUCH TO ME AND YOU WERE SUCH A SPECIAL PART OF MY LIFE. I LOVE YOU AND WILL ALWAYS MISS MY MOST PRECIOUS FRIEND AND SISTER.

I first met Hans in 1975 when I had finally saved up enough money for a Hans Biglajzer Custom Made Saddle. He was a lovely man and I enjoyed each and every visit with him. That saddle served me well throughout the years. I recently donated it to Sound Equine Options to support their great cause. I am sure that someone else is now enjoying my saddle. Thank-you Hans!

Marita and Matthew Corey posted on 9/28/17

It has been so many, many years ago. We lived in Clackamas Oregon about 1&1/2 miles from the Biglajzer home. We had three children, Matthew, Kaileen and Kathie at that time. We ate at their home and they ate at ours. We still have a funny story in our family. We were leaving their home after dinner. I invited Hans to come to our home the next Sabbath eve, My wife asked him what he would enjoy having for dinner. He smiled and thought, ... then replied, "Beef stroganoff!" My wife went through recipe books looking how to make it. It turned out - Wonderful ! As their family was leaving I told Hans how my wife had to 'look-up the recipe'. He replied, "I'd never had it before, but I'd heard of it, ... so that's what i said when she asked me. Hans was a Great conversationalist and his saddles were pure art. Appreciated reading his article in the old Plain Truth Magazine concerning his 'terrible experience' during World War 2. I look forward to speaking with him again, of course, after The Messiah - Returns to Rule ! May THE ETERNAL Give Great Comfort and Love to your family. Bless you this Yom Kippur & Tabernacles - Marita and Matthew Corey

Bea was such a great friend to me for 32 years. She helped me get through the sudden and unexpected loss of my Mother. This woman had a heart of gold and would lend advice if you asked. We had many fun and interesting days over my 10 years at Grantree Corporation. She taught me to make some merger most favorite candy recipes. Mothers Day, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas were such important celebrations to her. Her Son Ron and I got engaged in 2014, and was so looking forward to see him get married. I'm so sad that she won't physically be there, we know she'll watch from afar. Bea told me not to cry and I told her I wouldn't, and she already knew I was lying.. I laughed and said well maybe I would just cry for a week or so... She laughed and said not to complain about bags under my eyes from crying. She really helped Ron and I after nearly being killed by a drunk driver in 2015. Her words of encouragement and belief in God got Ron and I through the toughest of days. She told us to love each other stay strong and don't give up after she is leaves this world . Bea I miss you!

I wish you all comfort as you deal with this transition.

I love you. I miss you more and more everyday. I keep trying to find a reason to believe you're gone. But I can't. I still feel you here I still can hear your laugh. I miss you so much and I wish you were here. We always said to eachother.."I don't know what I'd do without you" Well I'm now forced to be here without you. I hate it. I miss our little walks and our talks about how frozen soda turns into a science experiment. Our days at cathedral laying in the grass. The days when you would hold me while I cried. The days when me you Ginger and Kayla would do things we shouldn't. None of us will ever be the same. And I'm sitting here at work thinking about if maybe I did something different you'd still be here. I love you more than life it's self Donell Lee❤️

Lawrence, and Fay's family in Iran and the U.S. and Canada: I am heartbroken to hear of our dear friend and neighbor, Fay, passing on. She was always the liveliest one in our coffee sessions with the other women of our street; and very politically-minded. She was very aware of world politics especially in Iran (she preferred to call it Persia, and identify herself as Persian). We also spoke a lot about contemporary politics in the U.S. during our coffee sessions, of which we all had loud and definite opinions. We will miss Fay's voice to add to the fray, and her beautiful smile in the photos of her she emailed to us of various vacations with you. I am very sad and she will always remain in my heart as a special friend.

I will always look back at her with great fondness, and laugh at our topless stories that were only shared between the two of us! (since we both had convertibles!).. She was a beautiful woman..

Oh "Doodle"....You asked me to promise you I would be with you "at the end". I told you I would. When we last spoke on Sunday, I told you to HANG ON...I will be there!!! I really believed I had time. Unfortunately time ran out, and I didn't get to keep that promise. I believe that all of us were shocked that you left us so fast. I want u to know that I really tried...and was in such a panic to be with you. I feel so bad and it is something I have to live with the rest of my life. My only consolation is that I was with you in May, and we had a wonderful time together. You were strong then.....and it never occurred to me that it would be the last time I saw you.I am so glad I was with you every time you went to the hospital for kidney dialysis ....meeting all those wonderful people that made you feel a part of that family. I know how much you cared for all of them, and how much they cared for you. Thank you for taking such good care of Jo....We shared so many wonderful memories together.... and yes, bad ones too.....you were always pig headed and stubborn....lol.....but the good times sure made up for that. We went on so many road trips together, and I saw places I only dreamed of going. Our special place being New Orleans...I will always remember the laughter, sitting on "MY bench"....eating that greasy chicken and me always trying to make you laugh....wearing a boa, picking up beads on the street for you.....trying to stalk Fats Domino with "Walking to New Orleans" blaring from your car......(which embarrassed you, AND the more embarrassed you got, the longer I did it)....Memphis, Nashville, Florida, San Fran...going to Alcatraz wearing those funny hats...... North Dekota where we got caught in a snow storm in July...and I went into that store wearing a housecoat, trying to get THE HELL OUT of Texas.....BUT.... "mooning" you all over the States,,,,(especially in Nevada, had to be the funniest)....,Hey Doodle...expect it when you least expect it!!!!! Oh how you laughed!!!!!.So many places, so many memories. Just so many GOOD TIMES TOGETHER!!!!! Thank you Dory and Brenda for ALWAYS being there for Jo, I know how much it meant to her...Thank you to the care giver who was so amazing, and didn't get upset when I phoned so often. Thank you Marilyn for all those phone calls we shared...supporting each other.....Thank you Steph for keeping me informed. Doodle: I miss our nightly phone calls......I miss your voice, your laughter, I will ALWAYS LOVE YOU , and you will be in my heart forever. xo

Yo mamma. I will miss you, especially on mothers day. This last year, I forgot and never made it up.. I am so sorry for that. I met Joanne when I started working in collections, at age 19... we did not make friends quickly.. but we bonded over a grudge with another employee. When she retired we made a habbit of going out to dinner at least once a month. We would be either at the Outback, or a Mexican food restaraunt. We made Thanksgiving a habbit, and then mothers day. When I went back to school, we lost touch a bit and I regret this. Joanne had a way with people. She was honest, opinionated and ... herself. She never let anything step in her way of what she wanted, she always found a way. She will be missed. Yo mamma, I love you and I will miss you. Until we see each other again.

Do you know Randy had a front row ticket to the Trailblazers for about 15 years. Feet on the wood floor! Directly across from the visiting team. Play (and players) in your lap. I got to use that seat many times over the years. He was recognized as the big boisterous guy by many top NBA players (including Kareem and Magic and many others when they came into town). He also was well known to the referees, and many times he was well received by the fans as he made his opinions known to all. (Once during a time-out, he stepped onto the floor and offered his eye-glasses to a ref. The crowd went wild. And for some reason, he was not ejected, as would normally be the case. I heard about it the next day from several who were there -- 'Did you see what your brother did at the game last night?!?')I'm Randy's younger brother, so I've known him my whole life - looked to him. We shared a room for several years. We did a lot together for over 6 decades. He visited us often. I miss him.

Betty I am so sorry for your loss of your best friend, husband etc. You and Rennie were so great together. You were great friends to everyone we all knew. I remember when Miranda was a little girl and Rennie would hold her and carry her around and she looked at his hands and said "Uncle Rennie your hands are so clean" We all laughed because she didn't know the difference between you guys and us and never did in her life. I hope they are together in heaven. Even though we know they won't hurt anymore, we still cry because we miss seeing them and hearing their voices. Miranda had us laughing all the time so we miss her cry ways. When you get time and we are both home, give us a call. I love you and miss you so much.

To family and friends, please except my condolences. The loss of someone dear to us can leave us devastated - asking why. The loss, whether unexpected or anticipated still has a heartbreaking affect on us. Comfort can be found in the inspired words found at Revelation 21:4. there we see how everything causing us anguish in our lives will be gone - including death. We also have the wonderful hope of seeing those we have lost by means of the resurrection hope given at John 5:28, 29. Please visit JW.ORG for more Bible based articles and videos that provide comfort, support, hope, and answers to sincere questions.

He blocked for me as a full back from 3rd grade to 8th leading me to a 26 touchdown season our final year. We share our blood as children like they did in Western movies, making a small cut and tying our wrists together. we slept 2 hours in our ski boots after skiing down the long carpeted stairs in his home on 17th & Knott before getting on a bust as Pounder Hounds in the late 70's. Countless more experienced. He visits me often...An angel watching over me each day as it will be until I join him..I can't express my sorrow nor grief, etc. I love you DTO

Although I lived 300 miles from Randy for the last 37 years, I felt he was always close to me, being closest in age of 3 brothers. When he was a kid, we were on our own in the summers and we often baked together creating interesting deserts for our family that always surprised our parents. Even though he used to sing with me at the piano, who would know he would grow up to sing karaoke in front of strangers in karaoke bars! Quiet Randy was even in one of my high school classes - Creative Writing! He was quite intelligent but kept that to himself. He pretty much just sailed through school. But he was always a fan of any sport Portland had even if he couldn't play it. Go Randy. Think of him as you watch.

I met Todd through dear Heather, during the Fred Meyer days. Not only was I lucky to be able to meet such a cool dude who knew so much about his job and computers, I had the pleasure to work with him, get to know him, but what I was most thankful for was I was also there to witness the very beginning of the amazing and beautiful relationship that was Heather and Todd. Which was and will always be a beautiful love story. I always enjoyed his witty and very dry sense of humor that always kept me on my toes. He will be missed so very much.

Tom posted on 7/1/17

Randy was a neighbor and we enjoyed conversations with him when he came over while I was working on my car. We talked sports, car repair, and all sorts of things that would just surprise us of how knowledgeable he was. We even had a couple of playful snowball fights on the back deck. It all would just make you wonder what was like in his earlier days. A very gentle man.

John Roberts posted on 6/30/17

I remember when he went to umpire school, too. We will miss him.

Angie Marsh posted on 6/29/17

Todd -- "Jorgy" -- became friends with my husband when they worked together at Fred Meyer, and he was such a kind, spirited and funny soul, that he invited us to meet his family and dogs, and often share some beers. Going on vacation with Todd & Liz to Reno was a blast. We were set to reunite with him in Portland and are deeply saddened to see him go. Todd, as The Dead said, If I knew the way, I would take you home.

Jorgy was one of my absolute favorite people at Apple. I would literally breathe a sigh of relief when he walked into a meeting. So talented, so funny and so young. He will be dearly missed.

Thank you for everything brother, I'll meet you on the other side.

Todd and I worked together doing computer support at Fred Meyer's Corporate Office. He was not only a great fellow employee, but a great friend. I want to extend my sincere sympathy to all of Todd's family and friends. May God bless all of you in this sad time.

Brandy Nollette posted on 6/26/17

I can't help but smile when I think of Todd. He was and always will be that sweet, goofy and willing to help a friend type of guy to me. It's been years since I have seen him, but I'm pretty sure it would've felt like days when I did. I will miss him, but I will not mourn him. He'd be mad if I did! Today I'll play "There come's a time" in his memory. I hope he gets to meet Jerry Garcia! May his family find peace with his passing and know that he was loved by so many. Best wishes and RIP my friend.

Marcel was a man of dignity, wisdom and conviction. He was a caring man even though his exterior didn't always come across that way. He would always help the people that he loved and I'm very fortunate to have had him in my life. I considered him a father figure to me and I cherish the times that we spent together as a family. He loved old school comedies and the food network. I recall countless hours at his home laughing and eating all sorts of foods that my mom and Marcel would conjure up throughout the day. It is with a heavy heart that I write this and even though we had not seen each other in a couple of years, I will always love Marcel and his two sons. My deep condolences go out to his family both here and in Romania. May he find peace and solace in heaven. May all of the pains that he felt in this life be taken away and may the lord comfort his loved ones during this difficult time.

To the family: I knew Kenny as a neighbor up the street. He spoke kindly to my family many a time as we walked by his home on the way into Mt. Tabor. Just last summer he drove by and saw our back yard bible club meeting and he was delighted to see the Lord's message being shared in our neighborhood. I just learned today he had passed but I knew something was up because I hadn't noticed him around. I am sad but do know he is celebrating with Jesus.

To the Family of Mrs. Mary Jane Nicolaisen: I would like to offer my condolences in the passing of Ms. Nicolaisen. I would also like to take this opportunity to share some comfort from the Bible. I noted that Mrs. Nicolaisen was a spiritual minded person, so I'm sure you will appreciate these scriptural thoughts. Psalm 36:9 calls Jehovah God "the source of life," and as such, he is certainly capable of restoring life to someone has died. The Bible shows that in the past, he has done so and is eager to do so again! (Job 14:14,15) This will be done by means of the resurrection of all of those who have died in his memory. Acts 24:15 speaks of the resurrection of both "the righteous and the unrighteous," (NOT the wicked). So then, you do have a real hope of being reunited with your dear love one, Mrs. Nicolaisen. The Bible promises the earth will be cleansed of all wickedness, sorrow and death and even the animals will be a peace with all mankind. (Revelation 21:3-5, Isaiah 65th chapter and Psalm 37:10-11, 29) What a wonderful hope, we have ahead of us, wouldn't you agree? Again, please accept my sincere condolences.

My dear sweet Aunt Shirley, When I was little I always looked forward to your house on the weekends. Then I had a daughter of my own who was the same way. She couldn't wait for Friday to get here so, Bree could go spend the weekend with you. Bree lost a part of her heart when we lost you. You meant so much to her. You made everything fun, holidays, birthdays, weddings. When you couldn't make it to the last holiday it just wasn't the same. We all thought of you, and prayed for you. You were always there for me when I needed you. I truly took that for granite I see now. Whenever something happened I called you, you were my prayer warrior you said. There's not a day that goes by that you don't cross my mind, I just wish I could have a little bit more time with you. Our family just is not the same without you. Say hi to grandma and grandpa, tell them I love and miss them to, most of all say hi to my son Joseph and tell him how much he is truly missed and loved. Aunt Shirley I love you so much. You are such a kind soul. One more thing Thank you for everything you did for me, I definitely did not tell you enough and I should have. Love always your forever niece Mindy.

I was so sad to learn about Lloyd's death. We had not seen each other in years but Lloyd and I were great friends at Overland Avenue school in West L.A. Together we organized a talent show for our sixth grade class with the theme of "The Roaring Twenties"! Lloyd directed most of the skits, did the technical lighting, and was the emcee! I did an impersonation of Al Jolson singing "Mammy." Lloyd's parents, Bea and Irwin, were wonderful people and I always felt welcomed in their home. Lloyd had a truly amazing imagination and was a born comic. I too remember Lloyd's accordian playing. He played "The Anniversay Waltz" at several school events. Lloyd will always have a special place in my heart. We shared the magic and wonder that is childhood. My deepest and warmest wishes to Lloyd's family. I loved him! John

Dear Claire, In 2005 I took a wonderful 3-day watercolor workshop in Santa Barbara, CA with you and Arne. To be with such a talented, generous, kind and witty man for those few days was an incredible joy. I have framed the 'Artistic License' that Arne gave to participants in our class, and it makes me smile and remember the fun and great instruction that week. I think it's a tribute to Arne that someone who met him during one workshop in 2005 could be so moved by his passing. My deep condolences to your family.

Dear Claire and family, we were saddened to learn of Arne's passing and you all have our deepest condolences in this sad time. You will remember that my mom, Lois Wright, worked for and with you and Arne over quite a number of years -- I think she first started when the firm was Westerman-Webber, and she was there through all the iterations. She loved her job, loved knowing you, and through her Judy and I had the chance to meet you. Arne even painted a portrait of our daughter Jennifer, I think probably in the earlier days of his artistic endeavors. Please accept our heartfelt best wishes now and in the future. We will all look back and remember Arne with a smile.

Thank you for the wonderful tribute to Arne, which is well-deserved. We had the honor and pleasure of knowing Arne when our office was at 711 SW Alder. We were on the same floor as Arne's studio, and met him early on. He had a rare sense of humor. I enjoyed seeing his art-in-progress. He often asked one of us to come to his studio and pose. He painted from photographs, but also used models. We were lucky enough to be those models on occasion. My coworkers may have had different experiences, but when I posed for him it was usually to capture the gesture of a hand. I will never forget that. Of course, our most famous encounter was when he took a photo of a coworker taking a nap in the break room. This photo later became a painting :). I am grateful Arne lived a full life doing exactly what he wanted to do. He deserved that.

Arne came to Moorhead, MN to do a workshop for our local Red River Watercolor Society. He was 86. He had failing sight, but his teaching about design was profound and reflective of the wisdom he had gained from painting for many years. His humor was a blessing. Every time I re-read his book, I smile because it is so "Arne". I treasure his kindness, humor, and sensitivity to others. His watercolors were truly filled with light and life. He knew how to capture the feeling of the moment with paint and brush. I consider him a master teacher and will always treasure my memories of his time here with our art group.

I knew Ed and Florence for many years and feel privileged to have been in their orbit. We were all touched by Ed's devotion to Florence. Theirs was a beautiful love story. His pain when Florence passed away touched us deeply. Ed was a great storyteller! His intelligence, humor, and love of life were an inspiration. We have missed Ed's visits since he relocated, but he will never be forgotten, nor will we ever again expect to meet such a remarkable, funny, brilliant person.

Oh Jerry. What a wonderful and warm friend you were. Our condolences to the family.

I am shocked. I was just thinking of Ed these past few days. Remembering the fun times we had with Ed and Florence during the short period we lived in Portland. They were one of the first people we met there and remained friends throughout our 13 year stay. Habonim and the Labour Zionist movement were one of the common interests we shared. He will be missed.

So sorry for the loss of your beloved, Mudd. I remember her as devoted to her role as Mother and Grandmother. She seemed cheerful and delighted by having people around to care for and to fix a meal. Take comfort in knowing she loved all of you even though her ability to express that was diminished. Knew she loved gardening and the beach walks. Thanks for sharing more details about her life. Rest in peace, Mudd.

Peggy was always such a joy! I remember my first time meeting Peggy, a day filled with smiles. Smiles and singing. One of the many things I enjoyed about Peggy were the stories she would share with me. She was such a wonderful story teller! Her time at lake Ronkonkoma when she was a child, her time as a telephone operator and all the famous people she had met, and attending catholic school were a few of my many favorites. Although we only knew each other a short time, the days I spent with Peggy will be memories I will always cherish. Peggy always made me feel more than just her caregiver. Peggy was my dear friend and I am honored to have known her. May her soul Rest In Peace.

I remember Peg McCarthy as a warm, welcoming, down-to-earth person who made all guests in her house feel comfortable and appreciated. She had a good soul and was always ready to laugh. Peg was an original and although I saw her only occasionally over the years, I am grateful to have known her.

Peggy was such a lovely woman. I cannot begin to thank her for all of the help she gave Joe and me throughout the years. She enriched our lives. I'm very grateful for all of the time she spent with our children. They really enjoyed "performing" for Grandma Peg. It's such a tragedy that Alzheimer's stole her wonderful and enviable memory, but it couldn't steal her fabulous personality.

I'll always remember Peggy for her beautiful smile and enthusiasm for life and people. She always celebrated the good things that people accomplished and kept such a positive outlook on life. She loved to laugh and was one of the best story tellers I've ever heard. She could keep us sitting around her dinner table as she recounted stories of her earlier days with Joe and Dolores and Tommy and Virginia and Mardi and so many more. She had a great sense of humor and made their antics sound funny and adventurous. Peg was also a wonderful listener and her wise and practical advice could calm you down when life seemed crazy. At those dinners around the table, she often ended with a song which was a treat; she had a beautiful voice and loved to sing. She was a kind and generous person full of fun and life and spread that around to all the people she touched. I will miss her.

There are so many wonderful memories I have of Peg and, like many of you, I have so many wonderful memories of Peg recounting memories. She would always tell this funny story about when I was child. Peg was visiting with my mom and taking up my mom's attention and being a child who should be at the center of attention, I would ask my mom over and over again, "is it time for Peg to go home yet?" My memory isn't so much of this particular day- I barely remember it. Instead, the memory is of Peg smiling and laughing every time she told this story (and many others). I loved that. She was a wonderful and unique lady. May she rest in peace.

My thoughts are with the Tompkins' family. I am MaryAnne Osolin when Allan was my brother-in-law. I had tried to get a hold of Allan a couple of years ago. When I just looked for you and Allan, I discovered your lost. My best to you. This is why people should't leave loose ends for years. You can be only a few days late. Allan's step son, Dan, I had heard had said some untruths about my family and I wanted to correct this. I had good thoughts about Allen and I wanted him to hear this from me. Now the angels will have to wrisper this to him. I hope your family will make this long road of tears with family and friends for your support, Sincerely, MaryAnn Osolin maosolin@msn.com

Memories of Peg will always go back to her friendship with her friend Virginia, my beloved mom. They grew up together in Brooklyn Hgts as BFFS from early childhood they held a bond not only as friends but more like sisters if you could hear them talk. As a child I was always entertained with them as they spoke about all their childhood escapades. They loved to talk about their teen years dating and bar hopping with Joe and my dad Walter. Lots of laughs and good times. Her son Jimmy became my mom's Godson and Joe became my Godfather. Peg and mom kept close through the years with hours of talk on the phone despite Pegs moves to SI and Oregon the bond was never broken. They talked for hours always like they had seen each other yesterday. Not everyone is fortunate enough to have a friendship like they shared in a lifetime. That tells you what kind of person Peg was and the bond they shared. When my mom died Peg with her amazing memory with only a call away kept my mom alive for me with her memories, at times when I needed the support that only a mom could give. I want to thank her for being a friend to me and keeping my mom's spirit alive. She had sense of humor and always some wise words to share, letting me know it was going to be ok. I know in my heart my mom was there to greet her along with her family and mine. May she rest in peace. I am comforted knowing her and Virginia will be dancing together and catching up on old times once again!

She had a beautiful voice. She was a lovely lady.

I met Hattie when she worked in the City Auditor's office. I started working there in the summer of 1961 and met Hattie then. She was a very nice lady and always wore a hat like the one in the funeral notice. She was an energetic lady and loved to laugh. After I left my employment with the City, I would run into Hattie occasionally when she was going to lunch with other ladies from the Auditor's office. It was always wonderful to see her and her friends because they were my friends as well.

Dear Ted, Adrian and Peter ~ A rush of memories flooded our minds this morning upon reading the sad news of your loss. Carol seemed an endlessly cheerful presence whenever we were with her. I was in awe of her talent as a calligrapher, and reminded of it every time I passed the illuminated "S" she crafted for us as a gift. It evokes memories of travel talk over pre-symphony smoked salmon hash dinners at the Heathman, Network Investors' events with many drinks, Adrian's wedding in your home, grandchildren at Fruit & Flower, and seeing her that last time on a glorious summer day in your splendid convertible in Stroheckers' parking lot. In other words... the good old days.Ted, Bill and I just returned Friday night from five weeks in S.E. Asia, so just found out too late from Ginger about your open house this afternoon. Please keep in touch... we'd love to have you and Ginger over for dinner sometime soon for catching up with each other.. With love ~ Kathi Snouffer

Bury Me With SoldiersI've played a lot of roles in life; I've met a lot of men,I've done a lot of things I'd like to think I wouldn't do again.And though I'm young, I'm old enough to know someday I'll die.And to think about what lies beyond, Beside whom i would lie.Perhaps it doesn't matter much; Still if I had my choice,I'd want a grave 'mongst Soldiers when at least death quells my voice.I'm sick of the hypocrisy of lectures of the wise.I'll take the man, with all the flaws, who goes, though scared, and dies.The troops I knew were commonplace they didn't want the war;They fought because their fathers and Their fathers had before.They cursed and killed and wept...God knows they're easy to deride...But bury me with men like these; They faced guns and died.It's funny when you think of it, the way we got along.We'd come from different worlds to live in one where no one belongs.I didn't even like them all; I'm sure they'd all agree.Yet I would give my life for them, I know some did for me...So bury me with soldiers, please, though much maligned they be.Yes, bury me with soldiers, for I miss their company.We'll not soon see their likes again; We've had our fill of war.But bury me with men like them Till someone else does more.

I have so many wonderful memories of you, and you really made my son one happy little boy when you sat and played trains with him. He is 8 almost 9 now and still has such a passion for trains and was so proud to have a grandpa and great grandpa that worked for the railroad, and even drove the engines!!!!! (you). I'll always remember chocolate chip pancakes, strolls in Venice Beach with little Angelica sitting on the chair section of your walker. I also remember your medical struggles and how your inability to care for yourself really took over your happiness. I know how hard it is when you feel like a burden to your loved ones, I kind of get it, just not to the same extent.

As her doctor for many years I came to know and care for Marge and Ben as well but more than just as patient's. They were very special to me. Perhaps they reminded me so much of my late wife's parents. Sometimes Marge would come in for an office visit and after the nurse took her blood pressure she would say things like I just want to talk and go on about her family and everything under the sun. I admired so much the way she looked after Ben and the way she faced her own illness. I think of her often and will miss her

My precious Margie was many things to me--a cousin, a best friend, a confidante, a substitute mother--as there were 20 years separating us. She had a unique, childlike voice--even in her eighties--and she had a lightness of spirit that was infectious. We spoke a lot on the telephone--even though we were far apart--me from Asheville, North Carolina--she from Portland--we were always in touch and on each other's minds. We shared a lot--my mother and her father were sister and brother. They were very close, and they had a bond that was handed down to Margie and me. Margie and her Ben travelled the world, loved their art, and adored their family--Barbara and John, Thea and Angel. Melissa, Hannah and Rachel. They devoted their lives to all of them. I am fortunate to have their children and grandchildren to fill the void she has left in my life. I know Margie is happy that we are so close. Rest in peace, my dear cousin. Thank you for being the best friend I could hope for.

Thea and Barbara, I am so sorry for your loss. However this obituary is beautifully written and brings back wonderful memories from my childhood of your parents. Probably my fondest memory is from about 50 years ago: your parents and the Lessels came to my parents Halloween party dressed in Tuxes and ape masks and played string instruments. they didn't say a word. they just came in, set up and started playing. My dad was dressed as a playboy bunny and my mom was Hugh Hefner. Somewhere we have home movies and I remember your dad and Mr. Lessel stopping for a cigarette break. Growing up in Glen Cove in the 60's was special. Thanks for bringing back such fond memories. When I find the movies, I will attempt to post them on Facebook.

Rabbi Joseph asked me to tell her about the love-affair between my parents, as they were married for 65 years and did almost everything together. As she asked, I started to think about how significant their relationship was in my life. I always viewed my parents as a unit, a unified front, with both acting and speaking in concert with each other. They were private people, rarely airing their differences or disagreements, choosing instead to consult with each other before presenting their opinions. Their face to the world was one of respect, honor and intellectual prowess. While Dad was usually the one to express his opinion and explain their actions to me, he spoke for both of them and I knew my Mom had a hand in everything. They were always there for me. This is how I wanted my relationship with my partner to be, and I am thankful that I could show them both that this was possible for me as well. Marrying your best friend is such a blessing; having two parents that were best friends while growing up is the greatest blessing anyone could have. They both showed me what loving truly means, and I will forever be in awe and grateful.

Celia was a patient of ours at Dr Breda's office. It had been some years since I had seen her, but I never ever forgot her. All of our patients were special to us but Celia definitely rose to the top, and she became my friend outside of the clinic. After leaving the surgical practice I didn't see her again but thought of her often. Today I googled her name and saw that she had passed away in 2012, and her wonderful husband Marvin followed in 2015.

I lost my dear friend Carlo today, a man of great love of life and faith in God. He is now and will always be a brother to me. He lived life with intention, would stop to notice even the smallest of wonderments. He lived as though life was a gift, living life half full, loving, giving, showing kindness and compassion. I love you Carlo! I will miss you brother, and still know you are ever so close to us, and with God who you spent a lifetime loving

I am sorry to hear about your loss. I know this is a very difficult time for your family. There is a bible scripture that i find very comforting. Revelation 21 3 With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” This scripture along with jw.org has always been very comforting to me, and I hope it comforts your family as well.

Whenever I woke up from sleep after my surgery, you were always there, moping my brow and giving me encouraging words.We love you and glad you are free of this zebra cancer. May you fly amongst the stars and know that you will always be in our hearts and every time we see a star or feel the breeze, see a flower, we know it will be you.The night I heard about your death, a flock of hummingbirds surrounded me on my walk.

Mary was my neighbor and friend. We last saw Mary at our annual Christmas dinner where she was her usual lively and engaged self. I am sitting at the same table as I write this and I can hear her loud burst of laughter. She brought the usual blue tin that she had had for years filled with the most amazing walnut cookies. When it became apparent that my adopted son had a speech impediment, Mary was patient with him unlike anyone else. Mary and I would chat as she tended her front garden planted with native plants. She knew each one by name and treasured them, no matter how poorly they performed. Mary chose her house paint color to compliment the neighbors' houses. She was good to my dog who had a few "sleep overs" with Diliah when I needed to be with my dying mother or needed a vacation. I still have the beautiful paper napkins she brought back from Greece. We had tea, my sons and I, at her house and Mary told great stories about her doctor father and her mother. They sounded like good people. My older boy has outgrown the books Mary gave us but my little guy still loves them. i am rambling in a stream of conscious way...in exactly the way Mary and I would converse. We covered a lot of territory hanging out as neighbors. When Mary moved, she took time to choose just the right neighbors. She was always thoughtful and kind. I missed her dearly when she moved. We tried to stay in touch. I would have invited her to our annual Christmas dinner again.

I spent summers as a child coming to visit my grandmother in Pinehurst, NC. Anne was one of her great friends, and we would often visit for tea, look at Duke's garden, or just sit a spell. I have wreaths in my home that she made, many, many years ago and fond memories of holiday meals we would share with her. I shall look for her light in the sky at night.

Judy Jones posted on 11/14/16

Mary was such a devoted friend. We worked together for several years and always enjoyed "picking each other's brain" when we worked with students who had challenges of various sorts. We always enjoyed hiking and sometimes just walking around her beloved Hawthorne neighborhood looking at Spring flowers. She will surely be missed.

The comfort I find in such a hard time of grief is that my grandpa would not want sadness. He told us all the time to be thankful and seek Jesus. He knew what life was all about. I'll sing his songs and speak his words forever. I love and miss my grandparents. I can't wait to see them in their perfect bodies, no pain, laughing and dancing down the streets of gold. May Gods grace and comfort be in us all until we meet again.

Dearest Bob and Phillipe,I have just found this obituary for Janine today. I ( and Cynthia) who happens to be visiting me, we're in Portland on Sept 27th. We stayed overnight, on our way driving from LA to Seattle. We tried to locate you both while there, without success. I called the only number I had, but they said you were no longer there, and could not give me any other information...We did leave a couple of messages on an answering service ( or machine?) at a number for Phillipe Kreiter, but never heard back. For some reason, it didn't occur to me to google Janine until today...please accept our most sincere condolences. This makes both of us very very sad. We have so many warm and wonderful memories of Janine .... We send you both much love. Audrey Loggia and Cynthia Armstrong.

Oh sweet baby David. I have the fondest memories of David, his sisters, and his mom and dad. Erin and Ester were my doll house playmates. I can still smell Claude's cinnamon roles and hear Callie's laughter. Boy, that kitchen was huge and the memories of Sunday meals remains deep in my memory. What an amazing gift to have been part of this families journey. David and my brother Peter were like two peas in a pod; soul mates living on the same parallel in the universe. An incredible phenomenon that most of us will never experience. Full of love, energy, and agony. I am very sad today to have learned that David has left us. I will continue to carry his joy for life and exuberance as I continue my own journey here on earth. David's death is part of a plan and he will be rewarded. With Love, Patricia Ariniello - Rojas

Bertha (I always called her Bertie) was the first person I met on my first day of school at Washington High School. She was walking by and I rushed out the door and asked if I could walk with her. She was just the sweetest, dearest friend! She is a person who shines God's light in this world and it feels darker when she's not here. Her light is shining in heaven. I didn't see her for years and then I went to her Church with a friend and found her again. I didn't know she was sick. I'm so sorry I didn't. I wish I'd said things to her to let her know how she touched my life and will always be in my heart.

Dear Diane, Carol, Carisu and Art. We all have so many wonderful memories of Art and the family, especially in our younger lives when we worked together and played together. Art was a kind and generous person, a brilliant designer and hard worker, yet he always had time for family and friends. He will be greatly missed.

Dear Carol, Diane, Carisu and ArtI will remember my second cousin Art, as kind and welcoming. Although I was not so present for a number of years after moving away to Quebec at age 2, my mum, Phyllis, kept a 'presence' alive of all the extended family.I fondly remember a visit to BC one summer when I was 14, spending time at the Sunshine Hills hobby farm. I think young Art was about 4.We all attended great-uncle Drum's 100th birthday celebration in Florida and came together again in 2012 in Costa Rica for a fun filled family reunion. Great family times too, at the Boxing Day gatherings.All my love, Dianne

Donna McQueen was my second mother. When I met my childhood friend Becky, Dick and Donna and their children became my other family. I never had a little brother and Jamie became the little brother I never had. They were there to support me when I hurt myself at six years old and had to be taken to the hospital for 26 stitches. Donna was there as a dear friend of my mothers, who shared an artistic sensibility and respect for nature. Becky and I thrived under these two women's shielding arms. Donna was more nervous and sensitive, my mother more earthly and grounded, but between the two of them it was more love than I could imagine. Donna was a gentle spirit who was able to capture the essence of natural beauty and bring it to life in her paintings. She was a devoted mother and daughter. Some fond memories include her making us milkshakes late at night when we were teenagers after swimming all day, or teaching me how to drink Tab, or her Sunday afternoon family meals of ham and pineapple and green beans. Or how clean her house always was, vacuuming and dusting were our jobs and it taught us responsibility and respect for our environment. She was a light spirited being, who was sensitive and conscious and caring. She didn't deserve this. I wish her peace, I wish her family peace. I wish the young woman whose life is inextricably altered peace. Thank you Donna for everything that you did for the young spirited little girl that I was. I am so proud and honored to have had you in my life. I will be forever grateful to you for your love and affection. You were a blessing to me and my family. May your soul finally rest.

Donna was my cousin. Because of that we have similar backgrounds and have shared her 80 years and my 67 years in many different ways together.She was a friend, a best friend.Donna was a very intelligent women. She was well read and always kept up with current events. She was always interested in others people's opinions of what was going on in the world, especially this year's election.We also shared our views on spirituality. We shared books. We were able to talk about our beliefs with no judgment.For years she was my movie partner. And we always had a lively conversation afterwards. She loved the old movies as well as modern. She also liked sci-fi.Donna was a beautiful woman inside and out. I loved her natural curly hair. I loved it best the last couple of years when it was silverly grey. I loved her head bands and her hats. I remember when she had a hat tea party. I loved the colors and clothes she wore. She had such style.She was a great artist. Those of you who ever saw her apartment would agree with me. It looked like an artist's studio from her bedroom, bathroom, to every room of her house. Even outside her front door she had a large basket filled with large seashells and a plant and something hanging on her door. Out her back door was was patio of flowers and plants. She had an artist's touch about her that came out in anything she did.Donna was kind. She loved others. She was fun. She had a great sense of humor. She wrote a children's book even though it wasn't published. She was giving to others in need. She loved her family passionately. She loved me. And, I loved her. I will miss her.

Becky, I am so sorry for this sudden and tragic loss and the shock of it all. Donna was such a gifted artist and caring, tender-hearted and unique person. Besides our Brightwood family friendship memories and babysitting occasionally, I have a special memory of her. When I lived for about a year in those apartments she managed in NE Portland... I asked her to paint a peaceful mountain scene with trees laden with snow and she graciously did so in a short period of time, as I wanted to give it as a gift.. still treasured today. She will be missed greatly.

I always really liked Lloyd Hulse and his approachable friendly wife in the LC Language Lab Ana Maria. I majored in Hispanic Studies and was in the same class (89) as Francisco Hulse. I thoroughly enjoyed his classes especially a couple of new classes (at the time they were new) on the History of Brazil and Basic Portugese. I remember Francisco Hulse commenting once "My dad LOVES linguistics and grammar. His personal heaven will be some sort gigantic language lab where he's listening to and analyzing who knows how many languages..." The quote was something like that anyway, I laughed, it sounded just like Dr. Hulse! His son would certainly know. Anyway, Professor Hulse, I hope you are enjoying your Celestial Language Lab, I'm sure you are! Go in peace.

Doris Marilyn McQueen posted on 7/8/16

One highlight that I can remember sharing with Donna, is that she would carry a camera, and take photos of patches of clover, or bleeding heart, and then would use her photos to create large paintings, with all the small details. Later on, she would use some of her favorite photos as greeting cards. She could see beauty all around her.

Ellen (Wyatt) McCartan posted on 7/8/16

I have so many very special memories of Dr. Hulse from my time at Lewis and Clark College. He taught me Spanish and Linguistics, but more importantly he was a friend. He invited me and others to his house several times, where we were pleased to talk to his kind, gracious wife and hang out with his son Jose and daughter Maria Ines. I will never forget his truly remarkable ability to sing and play the guitar - songs from all over Latin America. He'd sing in the accent or dialect of a certain region in a particular country! We could say, play a song from the highlands of Bolivia, or from the lowlands of Chile - and there he'd go - and his Spanish accent would adjust...I am so glad to have been able to see him again a few years ago at a reunion. He was an absolutely wonderful person.

i am so saddened learning just now that Eric is gone. My deepest sympathies go out to his family, his children, his groupies and many friends-I am so sory for our collective loss.I first met Eric when I took the first of my 2 sons to MAC for a sing-a-long class over 20 years ago. What a gem-he could bring out the best even in a shy child and his creative figure play and instrument jams gave much joy to so many children. His delightful songs, their playful lyrics and catchy melodies, have become part of our family canon-just awaiting my grandchildren. He really deserves recognition as a great American children's songwriter! I continued to have many conversations with Eric over the ensuing years-peppered by his laugh, buoyed by his sincerity, warm, wit, wisdom and intelligence. It was my good fortune to have shared time with Eric. The world id a better place for his having spent time with us.Jan Kuhl-Urbach, Portland, OR

I attended UP with Gregg and remember our special conversations. What a gentle and special man he was. I was one of the few African-American women at UP. Gregg never made me feel like I was different. We lost touch after I left UP, but I always thought of him throughout my life. It is wonderful that he fulfilled his dream. I am the first woman in my family to graduate from college. Gregg made such an impact on my life that I named my first-born son Gregory. My second born son Daniel was also born on February 8th. They both honor this special man that made such an impact on my life. Rest in Peace and Love Gregg. My prayers and condolences go out to your family.

Hap was also preceded in death by another sister, Thais, whom he met for the first time in 1983. Thais was my mother, and I accompanied her on the trip to Ohio to meet Hap, Kate, Lynn, and Anne. Hap and Kate met us at the airport and it was amazing. There was an instant rapport and genuine warmth throughout our weekend visit. I saw much of my mother in Hap; the square jaw, the blue eyes, the curly hair. April was just a little girl, but very engaging and outgoing as I remember. My mom passed less than three years later from cancer. I was able to stay in touch with Anne for a number of years afterwards, she was such a gracious lady. My condolences to all to loved Hap.

I had an enjoyable day of golf as part of Gregg's foursome at a reunion gathering. The other three were from later years at UP. Gregg is the one I remember because of his great sense of humor, and character. I rarely golfed. After about ten holes Gregg jokingly asked me, "With all of the activities to choose from this weekend, how come you picked golf?" It was a good question. We all laughed. Those few hours were the extent of my contact with Gregg, but it I have always remembered him fondly. Thank you for forming such a fine man. Jeanne and I will remember you and Gregg in our prayers.

I remember LaShanda as a cute little red head and full of life!! LaShanda and Kasandra were best friends as children and I loved them both as I did their Mother!! The move from Portland to Boise Idaho in 1988 was sad because I was leaving a family closer to me than my own!! I lost contact with Sheri and you girls in 1990! I know that Sheri and LaShanda are in the very best of hands now! Jesus please comfort Glen and Kasandra in this very sad time and let them know that one day they will all be together again!! I pray that one day I will see them again also! I send much prayer and love to Kasandra and her family!!!!

To Zach and Zoe I was so saddened to hear about the death of your dad. I know you'll hear this many times over but I must include my own admiration of him to you as well and say he was just so wonderful.I moved to Portland from New Orleans in 1994. It was soon after that your dad offered me a job at the Multnomah Art Center. I didn't know it at the time but it was certainly to become my dream job of all time. Your father became a my mentor not only for work but for my life; more importantly one of my greatest friends of all time. Yes, he was a really good listener, had a great sense of humor, was patient, honest, and loved those around him with such sincerity. He was one of kind and a gem in this life. Talks with him could lead to a new perspective that just made you feel better. It was always good to talk to Eric. OH and that laugh. I also want to add he was the best hugger of all time. Everything that was in his heart could be felt in one of those good hugs of his. I know he loved you both very very much. You both were young children when I first met him. His joy was his children. I could see the happiness in his eyes when talking about his children and him looking forward to anytime he could spend with you. I'm sure he gave you so many loving, happy, and good memories. You were what mattered most to him.Life knew what it was doing when he had you and you had him.Love to you both,Maria Poole

My Mom had this little smirk thing she would do with her smile when she was trying to shed light on a tough situation. I watched it over the years and she would often times precede it with a statement that was funny.Earlier on this particular day she had been told, with only myself present plus the doctor, that her case was terminal. So, I was really shook up and we talked and there was this very serious thing going on in the room for hours. You can imagine. It got way too quiet and so finally I said: "Mom, how do you feel?" She rolled her eyes and stared at me real serious and replied; "how do I look". She followed it with that smirk. It was the last smirk I ever saw but the one I will remember best. That was my Mom. She could roll with the best of punches. I learned a lot from her but on that day she showed me strength and that there was humor in every situation. I will miss her terribly but I get the feeling she will always be with me.

In the basement of the old firehouse, a previous location of the MAC, as I young board member I asked why we didn't have any classes for babies or toddlers. The thought caused the room to perk up with interest. Little did we know that bicycling towards us at the time was a jolly charming young troubadour who would make these dreams a huge reality. Eric Dash connected with children and their parents in a way which exceeded the job.We plopped our babies on the floor and sang and clapped into the rhythm of life. Along with Lindsay Mandal and other neighbors, we became Eric's "groupies" which extended to a lifelong enthusiasm and dedication to music, the arts, and the public art center . Can you ask for anthing better as a legacy than that of Eric Dash? We all loved Eric and in doing so we all loved our children and the arts which joined us together in creativity and love. Bless Erics family and children and dear partner for sharing Eric with us. Our life songs continue while Eric's life example asks us still, like the Pete Seeger song, "how can you keep from singing"?

Eric was my very first music instructor - as a toddler my mom took me to his African Drumming classes and it was always such fun. He was warm, kind, patient and caring. I continued to go to the Arts Center until I reached high school age and he always remembered me and would stop and chat. If it weren't for his introducing me to music at such a young age, I might not have gone and majored in music in college. I've now been a musician for the past 26 years of my life (I am now 29). Eric you will be greatly missed, you were a wonderful person.

He had the ability to bring a laugh in a heartbeat. So sad to her of his disease and death. In Loving Memory-longtime Portland friend. Cathy

I remember at work we had this young guy that was our boss and he was just a joke. Full of himself and nobody could stomach him. Dorothy was having none of it. He told her one time he couldn't find something she had laid on his desk. She came out of his office and told us she had said" What do you want me to do? Ring a bell each time I lay something on your desk?" Needless to say he only lasted a couple months. I have always remembered that she said that and have used it many times since then. She had a dry sense of humor like my mom.

It is not everyday that you meet such a woman as Shirley, but it is everyday that you do think about her. She had such a wonderful spirit, and heart. A friend like her is hard to find. I am truly grateful that god gave me the privilege to know her over the pass couple years. I am saddened by her passing, but overwhelmed with joy, believing that she is in a better place with our heavenly Father. Much love and thoughts go out to her and her family, especially her beloved friend Norine. she will be missed.

I am so sorry to here about Shirley's passing. I worked for her the Beaverton office in the late '70s as she called me in Salem and asked if I wanted to work in Beaverton. In the '80s I was stationed in downtown Portland office where Shirley was the manager. I went to her retirement party and I will never forget her doing karaoke to "Take this job and shove it". I last saw Shirley at OHSU when I was a patient. She certainly will be missed.

I was shocked and deeply saddened to discover Florence's passing. Tears could not be spared as I shared the news with my 98 years Mother, Lorane.My family moved into our new home when I was a Junior in high school. It is only over years of growth and reflection that I truly appreciate how blessed we were to have the Yospe's as our neighbors. Faith, family and the pursuit of academic achievement provided the rock-solid foundation for which they stood.Florence's velvety voice articulated wisdom and offered depth to any conversation. Her breadth of knowledge was impressive. Coupled with a casual elegance, a powerful presence emanated from her petite frame. I often found myself in awe of her. By far her greatest joy came from her children. Her love for and pride in them was ever presently palpable. Jordan and Naomi, kisses, hugs, praise and love from heaven are forever with you.In fond remembrance,Sharman Reecher

Lorane K. Reecher posted on 1/6/16

We lived next door to Florence & Len for thirty-four years. No one could have asked for better neighbors as they were simply the best. We were the fortunate ones.Florence was a beautiful woman, not only physically, but also in character. Her omnipresent inner strength coupled with an extraordinary capacity for compassion and kindness was a blessing to all who knew her.If I had it to do over again I would have asked Florence the secret in raising children. They did a magnificent job!Jordan and Naomi, I send you my most heartfelt condolences and am painfully aware of how deeply you feel her loss. Your Mother was special to so many of us, yet pales with her love and guidance in your lives. You were, and always will be, the light and joy of her life. She is so very proud of you.With sadness and love,Lorane K. Reecher

Shirley for Western State/Oregon College of Education and I for Willamette. She was a power woman athlete with a gentle and generous demeanor. Next we met when we became neighbors at American Plaza Towers Condo....in the early eighties. Loved sharing a visit, a gin and wonderful holiday cookies....along with fellow OCE Classmate Kaye L. Didn't really know of ALL of your accomplishments......you'll be missed but not forgotten... Blessings upon you.. JJ

Debbie was an inspiration to us all.

She couls think out of the box and continue her profession that inspired many of us to be hopeful for brighter days. She leaves a giant hole, but her courage, camaraderie, and delight in life will continue in our hearts.

My earlier memory of Jerry was having him as a religious school teacher (5th grade?) at Ahavai Sholom. He was very well liked by the students because he had a sense of humor and was very congenial. Years later, when I went to dinner with him and his family, he reminisced about that time and we agreed (the late Susan Berman, the "Jewish Mafia Princess," was in the class! Although I rarely saw him, I will always have fond memories for the times that I did and for his contribution to the Jewish community.

I learned about her soul too late. She was one of the closest people to me and we were estranged a few years before she came back to Oregon. She asked to meet me for dinner and I almost didn't show up because I was holding onto an old fight. It was suggested to me I may regret not seeing her. I made a deal with Abel that if he come, I'd eat with the both of them. If I never did that I would never have reconciled with her, and I'm so blessed I did. Looking through emails I saw where she tried to apologize and I didn't see it. I wish I hadn't wanted to hold on to so much anger for so long because I lost so much time. I love her and miss her so badly. I'm blessed I got 24 years and these passed few months. She taught me life is meant to be happy and mean something. It's purpose isn't to be angry. I didn't get it before.

Alan was a favorite skating friend for so many years. I started skating in 1966 and I remember sharing the ice with Alan and Lauren at so many club and dance sessions. Alan always had a smile and a positive approach to any need in the skating club, and for all the skaters. He was truly a wonderful leader in our little community of skaters, always supporting the shows or competitions, the club activities and banquets... anything bringing skaters together. I recall learning more than just skating from Alan as he shared his ideas on sales with me as well. He will be missed.

We had many fun family times together and when he was a little boy he and his parents moved to L.A. Where I lived with my family. Lloyd played the accordion at every family visit. He was smart and funny. He loved and collected all MAD Magazines. He was in my wedding. Sadly we lost touch in recent times but I never stopped thinking of him and of his children.

My "Sister Judy" brings thoughts of Joy. Growing up we would share a room in our small home ontogeny east side of The Dalles. Judy would knit late into the night after we were told to turn out the lights in the dark. She won a princess phone for a year that was in our room. She would make slippers to be sold for extra money that she would save. She loved American Bandstand, Elvis Presley, white bread with sugar on it and her baby Sister. She was loved by all of us. Our parents were devoted to keeping her in the main stream of life. Our Mother would show up at school to protect and stand up for her when necessary. I remember times in the snow, dolls, Sister time, and lots of family times. Her calls and thoughtfulness will always be a part of us all. Bless you dear Sister.

I remember as a child growing up when I first met Annette and her family I didn't know what the meaning of having a disability was. As I grew up and became closer to Annettes family, Judy taught me that disabilities don't matter. I never spoke about this before, till now. Judy has amazed me that she and her husband raised such awesome children on their own. I couldn't believe it , and to this day I still talk about how someone with a disability can lead a normal life and how she raised her children. I see the love in Annettes eyes and her voice when she talks about both her parents. This comes from parents who love their children unconditionally, like Judy has. Although, I hadn't had a chance to see her again in many years , I did get to hear her voice one day on the phone. She will have a special place in my heart forever. I will miss her deeply. The hardest part I still miss personally is the phone calls at night. Although, you know at times our mothers can drive us nuts.. we still miss those calls. Its still difficult, but we have to move forward and remember our loved ones in our hearts the joy, laughter , and sometimes the bad. Judy.... may you RIP and grow your wings to be Annette and Roberts angel to watch over them. You are forever loved .. and I'll miss you. tami

Always I looked forward to working with him, enjoying his wit, and benefiting from his keen insights. He had a gift for making the most mundane workday circumstance interesting and most of the time, funny. I do think it is rather cagey of him to reveal his Democratic leanings and preference for Hillary posthumously. He knew that I'm a “deepwater democrat”and he listened to my political rantings without a hint that he agreed. I could have saved my breath.

Florence was the voice of academia in our Ladies night and Torah study gatherings. She always spoke in complete paragraphs and illuminated something important for our consideration. Oh and she was also beautiful. Yes, she was. She had that regal demeanor that always made the rest of us sit up straight and tuck our crossed feet beneath our chairs. She was most definitely a Lady, commanding respect and consideration.

RIP Alan, my sincere condolences to Janet, Lauren & Evyn. I'd never met Alan but we've shared e-mails for decades & was encouraging in support to our SF Bay Area Ice Dancers as well as our friends in Portland. His words of encouragement are not forgotten & will be shared to our new generations of skaters.

Janet, Lauren, and Evyn...I am so sorry to hear about your husband and fathers passing. Alan was my mentor when I was making fused glass art and he was always so kind with his time and advice. I wouldn't presume to tell it will be better as time goes by, but I will say his memories will be with you always. You are all in my thoughts during this time of mourning. Becky Patroni

Prayers for the family on your loss. Alan was a great man and such a joy to have in the skating community. I loved seeing him at all events and the pleasure of being able to skate ice dance with him also. He was always positive and genuine on caring for all skaters/kids. I wished I could have been present for the service but so glad I can share on this site. Thank you!

Lauren and family, Hello! Ryland sent me an e-mail just now letting me know about your family's loss. I have many great memories of Alan. I only knew him through skating but he was a great inspiration to me and all of the parents and the kids at the rink, as well as a great leader and supporter of the skating community. You could tell he was in his element at the skating rink and I love the way he encouraged young skaters like Ryland and Amanda. We will truly miss Alan and are thinking of you and your family. Denny and Ellen Stucke.

Dear Lauren & The Zell Family,I am so very sorry for the loss of your Father & husband. I am thinking about you Lauren a lot & I wanted to share my memory of your Father. I met your Dad only once & it was back when Kia was still here. My car would not start after Kiara had skating practice at Mt. View & you & your Dad were about to walk into the rink. You saw me & asked if everything was OK. I mentioned my car situation & your Dad offered to take a look, just as Kia came into the parking lot from work. Your Dad really liked Kia's old Mercedes 1987 560SL (convertable) & as they were checking out my car, they just hit it off. Pretty soon they were trading jokes w/each other! Kia & I really enjoyed that brief encounter with him & hopefully the two of them are trading jokes with each other now! I'm sending you & your family much strength & a huge hug. Kiara also sends you love & a hug as well.

I just heard about Bob's death today. Bob was one of the kindest most honest people I've known.

What a great man.

Rodney was a wonderful person full of personality. My memory is night sledding down a hill in Oregon with him and Kellen. We all shared so many laughs breezing down the hill in the brisk winter air. He will be greatly missed!

A recent friend of Rodney's through the community gardens program posted on 9/29/15

Sometimes someone enters our lives who is so simply ‘there’ that we feel immediately at peace without even realizing it. Sometimes someone is so open and generous with his knowledge that we receive his wisdom as if we already know it. Sometimes someone is so loving and honest with us that we feel capable of kindness ourselves. When someone like that leaves the world, we realize how deeply he touched our lives. We grieve losing him, but know that we are each a better person for having known him. This is Rodney Bender, gone so soon yet leaving us so much. Thank God for Rodney Bender!

Bethany Gingerich posted on 9/28/15

I didn't know Rodney really well - he was a few years older than I when we were growing up - but he was always kind to a younger girl trying to fit in. I remember his smile & gentle sense of humor. It seems that he has touched many lives and worked hard to make the world a better place. My deepest sympathy to all his loved ones.

I met Geoff when he worked at 24 hour fitness in Beaverton. We had an instant connection and were inseparable from day one. We got married in 2008 and had ryder in October 2009. Sadly, I feel Geoff and I made better friends.I remember going to Dairy Queen almost nightly for large chocolate extreme blizzards with extra stuff. Geoff was adventurous and one day decided he wanted a Brazilian wax... I laughed so hard along with the esthetician. And laughed harder when he used acetone to remove the excess wax. He loved to cook us dinner. Even after we divorced he would cook for Ryder and I. He loved doing art work and painting with ryder. He passed the artsy gene to ryder. Ryder and I still very much care and love Geoff. He leaves a hole that cannot replaced. He was a one of a kind person, friend and dad. ❤️

Geoffrey came into mine and Carla's life, first as a personal trainer, then I hired him part time to help in my piano rebuilding company.In our place of business we would have customers and piano movers in and out all the time and people seemed to gravitate toward Geoff and immediately love him.Working together with him was very fun as he had such a wild sense of humor, while at the same time was a very hard worker.We often discussed things of a spiritual nature and I feel I had a very close bond with him, even though our spiritual paths were different.Although I haven't seen him in a while I think of him very often and he will be missed dearly. Love to Geoffrey - May the Blessings Be...

I remember the first day Geoff and I met. I was sitting on my apartment balcony relaxing when suddenly someone climbed from the stairs onto my balcony. At first I was startled because I didn't know him, but after a brief introduction and a few laughs we quickly became very good friends. Since that day we met we both always agreed that there seemed to be a strange connection between us that we couldn't explain but we knew existed. It seemed we always called each other at the very time the other needed talking to. It could of had something to do with the fact that we met God at Mcdonalds one night whatever it was I can truly say Geoff was a one of a kind friendship that I will never be able to replace or find again. I will truly miss you friend LoveShawn

Though we were not able to see her as often in recent years as we would hope, her caring presence was felt in our lives through her kind words including those about our son Isaac, named after his great grandfather, as well by her prayers for us. Holding the family in our hearts and prayers and celebrating her life with you at this time. In warm and loving memory of Rose, Jennifer and Ed Carrigan and family

Auntie Rose was the sweetest woman, so full of love and laughter with a beautiful sparkle in her eyes and ready with a hug (or if you were a kid, a pinch to your cheeks that you would not forget!). Though we were not able to see her as often as we would have liked in recent years, she touched our life through her care and prayers for us - even asking often about our son, Isaac named after his great grandfather. Holding the family in our heart and prayers and celebrating her life with all of you. Remembering Rose with love, Jennifer, Ed Carrigan and family

Dear Marto and Dickranian Families,We extend our deepest heartfelt condolences to you upon the passing of Rose.Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. We will always remember Rose fondly and have wonderful memories of times spent with her. All who have had the privilege to meet Rose can attest to her effervescent personalty which was quite infectious.Rose and her husband graciously took our family into their home for several months when we immigrated to the United States in 1969. At this time, I, was 5 years old and knew only a few words of English. I recall running up and down the stairs at Rose's home on Ash Street and gazing at the beautiful view of the Willamette River.May she rest in peace.“When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.” Kahlil Gibran

I remember meeting Harvey & Leslie through a friend, I was just starting my clothing business out of my living room up on Vista Dr. I was a little scared, they were my first "not yet met" clients. Wow, is all I can say. They were so gracious and nice, but still tested me, it was the start of a lasting relationship. Harvey not only made me look good with his impeccable style and handsomeness, having Leslie on his arm didn't hurt either, he/they showed me by example what was really important in life, "each-other". It's been awhile and I often reflect on those early day's, and Harvey and Leslie, and how wonderful it was when they were around. I'll miss you Harvey and how you were there in the beginning for me, and how you carried yourself in life, it is an honor my friend. Brent Collier

I first met Herb in the 90's when I went to work for a company and inherited Herb as my rep. Not only did I learn a lot from Herb but I enjoyed his many stories. Herb was a true gentleman, a patriot, and very generous. I have many fond memories of working wit Herb and one thing that I found out early on is don't ask Herb a question unless you want to hear the truth with no fluff. He knew the industry inside and out and was respected by everyone I ever met. Thank you Herb for what you taught me, your kindness, generosity, and friendship. I will never forget the time that you took me to the symphony and introduced me to one of the finer things of life. I will miss you Herb.

Harvey was the man who gave me a shot in the sales business and my first real job in this industry with Manar Sales Co. or "Kelwin Dist" as was proudly posted on the front of the building in St. Johns. I was a young kid three years removed from college and knew nothing at all about the business, but Harvey took me under his wings and along with Bob Wagner taught me the ropes. I am forever grateful to Harvey for his tutelage and friendship. He sometimes scared the hell out of me, but I always knew deep inside Harvey was a kind, understanding and caring man. I'm not sure he knew my first name for awhile and always called me "Junior" or perhaps that was a reflection of my stature. Never the less, Harvey was always a fair patient man mentoring me along with the business and I'll never forget my years working at Manar Sales for Mr. Harvey Kelinson. I'll always remember that huge big smile of his along with his warm laugh and "Hello Jr." whenever he and I crossed path's usually at the Fred Meyer main office on sales calls once our days at Manar were over. Harvey will always have a special place in my heart and many fond memories, he will be missed for sure. Thank you too Leslie for sharing Harvey with all of us, God Bless!

Though we were never able to meet Austin in person, we are currently renting his Atlanta home and have got to know him a bit through email correspondence.

Austin was a great guy. He was one of the first people I met when I became an intern at Verizon in Portland and I always thought he was stylish, had the cool vibe, and was kind hearted. Austin inspired me to become a system performance engineer before I got hired back onto the company full time. Towards the end of my internship I was able to do a ride along with him for a few days to have him show me the ropes and how SP was different from RF. Those were the best couple of days of my internship because all we did was field work. We went to a site out in the boonies, the retail store dt pdx to improve the coverage and performance, and then tested throughout dt pdx to make sure everything was working properly. We joked and laughed during that whole experience almost every time we talked. When I got hired back to Verizon full time as an RF, I had the privilege to have Austin be my system performance engineer for the gorge, so I got to work with him very closely. Towards the end of my RF stint in Portland before I moved to Spokane for system performance, we were constantly talking about what houses we were going to buy, what sport teams are going to do good next year, what concerts are coming around the corner, etc.... I will never forget who Austin was as a co-worker, a friend, and a human being. I am deeply saddened by this tragedy because he was too young. He and I are both into extreme sports and it was more comforting knowing he was doing what he absolutely loved to do. My thoughts and energy goes to his life partner, his dog, and the rest of his family. I am truly sorry I won't be able to make the service, I am there in spirit....-Andrew

I still remember the day I interviewed Austin for a contract position at Verizon. It was early morning breakfast in the Dunwoody, Atlanta area. My manager David and I interviewed him and before even walking out of the restaurant we knew we had our guy.Austin blossomed into an excellent engineer and even a greater team player in no time. This was enough for us to bring him on as a full time employee at Verizon. He always wanted to move to the West coast, where he could enjoy biking, so when a position opened up in the Pacific Northwest area, he immediately applied for it. It was a tough decision for me to let go one of my top performers, but the opportunity was too good for him to miss. When I first told him that he was getting the job, he was overjoyed. That was the last time I saw him. The Atlanta team will always miss Austin.

Austin inspired good. I could not talk with him and not feel at least a little better, a little happier, and generally brighter for it. An over-all good man who helped extract the best of humanity. He worked hard, played hard, and lived passionately. I miss him. I feel an enormous void in my hear, and I am happy to have had the honor to call him my friend. I hope and pray his partner, family, and friends will find comfort at this time of grief. His memory caries on in us, and I look forward to when we are all united again.

Nathan, Monica, and family,I was very saddened to hear about Austin. We have all grown up and gone our separate ways over the years, but it still seems like yesterday the last time I saw Austin, which about 20 years ago. I needed a ride home from a friend's house and everyone there was being social and no one wanted to miss out. Austin went out of his way to give me a ride and make sure I was taken care of, an early sign of him putting others before himself and an example of the servants heart that he had. God Bless!

Austin and I dated in high school in 1994 and there was a huge flood in Georgia that caused a lot of people to be evacuated. I was volunteering for the Red Cross getting people set up in a local highschol gym. I had been there over 30 hours and suddenly at like 4am, Austin is there just smiling that infectious smile handing me coffee. He came in and met all my scared little ladies and kids that were so scared. He prayed with me and a very elderly woman as she sat on a military cot. He hugged strangers and comforted them. I will cherish him forever. Love you Austin. See you in Heaven. Jesus bless all who are hurting.

Joyce was the only grandmother I knew. We had so much fun when I lived with her and my grandfather. We would be up into the early hours of the mornings dancing to the 50's music on the jukebox in her deli while she decorated cakes. She would make me laugh all the time. I have so many very fond memories of her over the years. I am so happy that she is finally reunited with her love in heaven. She was a great and very strong woman that taught me tolerance, how to square dance, to love 50's music (her love of Elvis and Larry Bird cannot go unnoticed:) I will always carry her "woohoo" with me and there never is and never will be a time that I see a cake and not think of her. You are loved Joyce and deserve to rest after a long and hard life hear on earth. Your grand-daughter always -- Corrie

Even still, it wasn't hard to see his brilliance. I wish you strength in this very difficult time. You and your family will be in my thoughts.Miranda, camp counselor at Camp Abenteuer

It was my pleasure to teach second grade with Melba at North Gresham Grade School; she was a supportive mentor to me in my early teaching days. She constantly flashed her warm friendly smile and was a positive influence to those around her.

I did not personally know your son, but incase if you were not notified, your son was a deeply loved member of our online chatroom. He was proficient in competitive online pokemon battles, and was a valued member of the community. The others in the room have made a post on their online forum as a memoir to him, which can be found at http://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/in-memoriam.3538706/ I'm very sorry for your loss, we were extremely devastated to the point where we thought it couldn't get any worse, then i thought you being his parents? that would have been a LOT worse.

i just learned of Ellen's passing. Ellen and I were Fsvcebook friends. We communicated regularly. I admired her a great deal for her warmth and her intelligence. She was an accomplished woman. I saw her as an inspiring role model. She told me of her love for her family. She reminisced about her wonderful and interesting life. We are all so busy with our day to day lives. I did not realize that she was out of touch.This morning I woke up and thought of her. I then found out that she passed last summer. I am so profoundly sorry. My sincerest heartfelt condolences to her husband and her family. Ellen was a one-of-a-kind. She was special. She will be missed.

I am a 91 year old WWII combat soldier who attended the service to pay respects to the Colonel and in retrospect thank another brave soldier I never had a chance to thank:Medal of Honor Cecil Bolton. He saved my life just as Melvin Garten saved many lives at great sacrifice. It was a beautiful personal service. After my moments of reflection I left for home upfifted.

She was always out walking, but enjoyed a quick chat. When chemo was introduced, she and I went wig shopping, but she looked much better in a scarf. And when her hair grew back, it wasn't her original brunette, but a lovely curly white. A beautiful and kind woman; I will miss her.

Dario was a dear friend of my father's, during their childhood and when they lived in Washington, D.C. as young adults, and later still after my dad returned to Portland to retire. I met Dario when he and Dad were in their 80's. I have such fond memories of listening to their childhood stories, of the dancing lessons Dario and Maria gave my husband and I at their home, and of Dario's enthusiasm for everything! He taught us about history, music, gardening, Italy, and fashion. We cherished his humor and his sincerity, and his friendship. Dario embraced life with an unparalleled enthusiasm. We send our heartfelt condolences to his family for their great loss.

I have known the Frankels since I was very young from temple. I used to love spending time with Rach and her family. Sadly after my family left temple I lost touch with the Frankels until I found Rach on Facebook. It was one of the happiest days to reconnect with my dear friend. I saw her about three and a half years ago and was so happy to see her mom again. Though time had passed her mother hadn't. She was loving and caring and despite being in a wheelchair she still was doing it all. I was so sad to hear from Rachel that her health was deteriorating and that she wasn't expected to make it. I am so sorry to her family for their loss but I'm thankful she is in no further pain and is in heaven looking down pleased with her loving family and the way she led her life. She was a wonderful mother grandmother and wife. She was so welcoming and kind.

Hello, to those of you that don’t know me, my name is John Geary Tinsley, I’m Rachel Frankel’s partner in life. I am very good at speaking in front of large crowds and shooting from the hip. But then it dawned on me, I am speaking about Ann Frankel and that would be totally inappropriate. So, I wrote these words down, and here it goes. Ann always made me and everyone around her feel welcome. Don’t get me wrong, if she didn’t like you or had a different opinion, she would most definitely let you know! But the time I was able to spend with her was priceless in so many ways. It was an honor and a privilege to know this lady. She has put a piece in my soul as long as I shall live. You will always be loved and never forgotten. And when you would look at me and say “Hi Baby”! I knew every time I was fortunate enough to have two moms, not just the one I already had. Thank you for the time you shared with me. I will always love you. And I promise to keep the promise that we made to each other. No matter what.On a final note, if any of you know of the shows Alaskan bush people or Gold rush, those were Ann’s favorite shows and we had that in common. In fact, when it was the season finale, she was too sick to watch. I stayed up late that night and watched it twice just to make sure I could tell her all of the details the next day. So if you are a fan of the show while you are watching it and can think of her for just one moment we would really appreciate that. I want to thank the Frankel family for letting me speak about their mother, grandmother and wife. Thank you.

Dear Sister Hazel and family,My love and prayers to you at this time of Bro. Ivon's passing. It is always so a sad time, but to the believers in Christ, it is a joyous time as look so forward to eternity with our Heavenly Father in our Heavenly Home. I will always remember dear Bro. Ivon and his faithfulness coming to the Bowlsby household to pray with my Mom and Dad or us kids when needed. He was always there when they passed on. When my sister Melody died in my arms about 2000, Bro. Ivon was at the Providence Hosp. even before I got there with the medics. He always had a prayer and words of encouragement when we needed it. I know there were times it was hard on him to always try to uplift those in pain or in need, when it can be wearing on one if they themselves may be in pain or not well, but he never showed it and was faithful to his calling. God bless him abundantly with a great reward of faithfulness. He was also a very dear friend to my late husband Willis and how they did enjoy the Ham Radio contacts.May the Lord bless and uphold each of you in the days to come until you see one another again in our Heavenly Home.My love and prayers to a wonderful family I love.Barbara McCormick

Edward Frankel ~ Husband posted on 3/26/15

As Ann’s husband, lover, and caregiver my life has been enriched by her presence. For nearly 65 years we first met while we were both in PS89 in Brooklyn NY, she was 9 and I was 11. Ann lived 2 ½ blocks from me as we were growing up. In our teen years, we were summer Boyfriend and girlfriend ever since I can remember. We each began to date other people in high school and college. To my surprise Ann became serious with one fellow while in college. However, her father told her “You will marry Ed Frankel, Unbenounced to me. Her father statement occurred several days before I got the courage to call her home one Saturday afternoon. The reason was I always carried a torch for Ann. I don’t remember for sure if it was her father or mother who answered the phone and told me she would be coming home soon from working at Lord & Taylor. Upon that notification, I proceeded to wait for her at the Newkirk IRT Subway station. As she walked up from the subway she saw me standing there and smiled. She asked me why I was waiting there and I replied “Just waiting for someone special” and Ann said “So nice to see you again after son long”. In my enablable fashion I replied as I was trying to composure and breathe I said “I missed you” as we were walking towards her home. Then I got up the courage to ask if she was busy that evening and if she wanted to go on a date. Without hesitation she replied “Yes”. I walked her to her apartment building and said I will come pick you up at 7pm.After our date that evening, she asked me if she would see me again and I replied “How about tomorrow” and the rest is history. Eleven years after first meeting we were married.We have parented 3 wonderful Ann’s words “Marvelous and Fabulous children and four above average grandchildren”I can’t express in words that the love of my life has departed from me and will forever be in my heart until we meet again

My mom taught me since I was a little girl to stand up and be counted.It took me years to figure out what she meant. She wasn’t handing me apassport for rebellion! She meant for me to make a difference. Shemeant that no matter how you feel inside, get up, get dressed and getout there! Be the change you want to see in the world.My mom embraced every decision I ever made, whether it was good, bador indifferent. She called me the special needs whisperer and beggedme to use my gift. She always told me how smart I am, even when I wasacting like a fool. I am so glad I changed careers before she diedbecause it made her so proud that I was making a difference and payingit forward.She wasn’t religious, but her faith and Jewish identity was at thecore of tikkun olum and mitzvuot. I want to share that one of herspecial gifts was donating food to the local food bank. She would makelists and buy food every week and my parents would do this regularlyand never wanted acknowledgement. This is just one of her legaciesthat I feel compelled to carry on.My mother was exceptional, stunning, powerful, intelligent, andstronger than anyone else I know. She taught me to be a strong woman,mother and community leader. The greatest gift that I ever gave was tobe a grandma. Her will to live and daily struggles were overshadowedby her unconditional love for Jayden, Joshua, Baylee and Eli. Theywere the absolute joy through all the pain and it made her feel lessimprisoned in her own body. It’s priceless. I promised her that wewould be alright and that her grandchildren will be good people. Theywill care. They will do. They will love.My parents have had the most inspiring love story and their lovesknows no boundaries. A true commitment. I always aspired to have that.My mom and I had a love hate relationship because she felt that Ishouldn’t settle for second best. Up until recently, we finallyunderstood each other and were able to share our deepest feelings. Shetold me she could die knowing that I finally have peace and true lovein my life and that I have never looked happier. She told me earlierthis week to keep doing what I am doing and she is proud of the womanand mother I have become. She told me it’s my turn. It’s now myresponsibility to take care of my family. I’m the matriarch. I’m readyand she knows now that I am equally loved and I have what she alwayswanted for me…. Someone to pick up the pieces when I feel broken. It’sGeary and the boys and she gave me her blessing.Mom, I will not let you down and thank you for choosing me to carrythe baton. Thank you for being my soul mate. Thank you forchoosing me to finally be at peace. Thank you for all of you. I loveyou. Thank you for never giving up on me when I was giving up onmyself. We will be okay, I promise.

One of my strongest memories of Mrs. Frankel is from a time when my mother was ill. She insisted that we get our mother's hair dyed when we were focused on more practical tasks. It was just what was needed at the time. This was typical of Mrs. Frankel, to see the little needs and ensure they were met. She had a larger than life personality that will continue to influence all of us who came to know her. I will miss her caring and inquisitive nature in my life.

Ann Frankel will be dearly missed by all those who were lucky enough to know her. Ann was the amazing mother of my dear friend Jennifer and we had many in person and telephone chats during Jennifer and my law school/before we were married days. Her Brooklyn confidence, chutzpah and wisdom guided us during those precarious times as young, eager students with our whole lives ahead of us. She had style and grace and my love of decorating and all things chinoiserie was inspired by Ann. Although a nice jewish girl, she had a taste for prosciutto and good italian antipasto. So many comforting similarities between jews and italians (my heritage) I always felt at home with the Frankels. My mom and I remember so fondly the lovely lunch she had for us in NYC when she and Jennifer couldn't attend my bridal shower - it fell during Passover (what were we thinking)? I was so honored that Ann and Ed flew in from California for my wedding and we've stayed in touch over the years. Ann made you laugh, she made you smile, she gave it to you straight. She left this world way too soon and will be missed dearly but I am absolutely certain she will be working with Joan Rivers on the next QVC jewelry line for the "heaven" set. Rest in peace Ann. Our love and deepest condolences from the Arangio/Sanders clan.

I met Ann when I was a teenager -- she was my best friend's mother. She would always make me feel welcome at her house and call me 'Karela' as a term of endearment. She would let me go shopping her closet for pieces she didn't wear anymore and would take Jen and Zi to awesome places, including a luncheon where we met Barbra Streisand. She and her family were my early inspiration to convert to Judaism. And she was always proud that I went on to become a rabbi. I will miss her dearly. May her family be comforted among the mourners of Zion.

As Ann's eldest daughter, I am deeply saddened by her passing yetabundantly proud to be able to share her legacy of caring and culturalawareness. The middle daughter of a Brooklyn shmatta dealer, she wasa Fashion Institute of Technology graduate and community serviceleader. She possessed an exceptional eye for style and decorated ourlives and those of others. She provided my father with a true marriageof equals and endless love. Throughout her life she was committed toher family and supporting others.Mom orchestrated a cross country move to the wilderness of southernCalifornia in the early 70s with toddlers and pets. While raisingthree children, over half a dozen cats, a few dogs, assorted rodentsand at one point, an exchange student, she was in the forefront offeminism and work-life balance. She managed a home while my fathertraveled and never missed to pick him up at the airport in the whitezone for immediate parking and no stopping as I clearly remember.When he launched a business, she placed us in summer school during theday and worked the phones at his office. Before it was popular tohave it all, she did, juggling parenthood, supporting entrepreneurismand serving as the lead arts volunteer for our town. She was a magnetfor all -- a veritable social butterfly. With her supreme organizationskills and without a computer, smart phone or administrativeassistance, she coordinated fairs, antique sales, art openings, templerenovations and fabulous parties. I have many fond memories of mymother's management of our Girl Scout troops, creating fashion badgesand catering meetings as if we invited the Queen of England. Everyclass project was bedazzled and Mom insisted on bringing paellaseveral times to multicultural events because she thought it wasfabulous, notwithstanding that it was unrelated to our heritage.Mom's stylistic approach also extended to Mexican food on Passover.We were so called disco orphans, sleeping in the back of a Pinto whilemy parents watched Saturday Night Fever in a drive in. After thatmovie, every weekend my parents would go dancing, leaving us and thepets with neighborhood sitters. Our home was open to all, withfriends always welcome for a pool party and random cats joining us fora meal through the cat door, reflecting my mother's hospitality. Oneyear she oversaw the sponsorship of a Vietnamese family who came tothe US and made sure they had a Christmas celebration, even though weare Jewish. Her faith and Jewish association instilled in us alifelong connection.My mother became a sinophile, obsessed with Asian art and food as shetraveled twice to China with my father. She fascinated the people shemet with her blonde hair and warm attitude, while secretly assistinga family to leave and join their relatives in the US. This experiencewas part of her teaching about cultural awareness. We were raisedwith a view of equality and caring for all, notwithstanding anyone'sbackground. In her work, she embraced all those she met and respectedthem for themselves. All of our friends adored my mom, some of themcalling her often for advice. Random animals were drawn to her aswell and she was so forgiving when we brought home strays and friendswith lost souls.Mom's creative conceptualization did not cease even when she assumedcare of her beloved parents and then when she slowed down due toillness. She made sure my grandmother had music and my grandfather hadpastries, after arranging their move to LA with my father's incrediblesupport. Her leadership extended to being a self styled advocate forthose with mobility impairment. She figured out a way to drive in herconvertible and navigate stores with her wheelchair, directing thosein front of her to watch out. Marshalls/TJ Maxx of Del Amo Mallmisses her a lot.Although I have spent my adult life on the other side of the country,my mother was only a phone call away and I visited often. Sheprovided academic support, parenting advice and career direction,inspiring me to dress well, speak clearly and wear a matching handbag.When I was in high school, she wrote a letter to Lord & Taylor withinstructions about my dress selection. Mom arranged wedding partiesand celebration for us, competing with top party planners, using hersignature pencil and notepad. For my father's 63rd birthday she threwhim the bar mitzvah he never had and perfected every detail down tothe surprise attendance of New York relatives.This past summer we celebrated our parents' 50th anniversary. This isa milestone that few couples achieve and an inspiration to us all.For me, my parents' marriage is a guidepost and I knew as a young girlhow important it was to select a husband with similar values andbackground so that our partnership would be as enduring as my parents'has been. For that esteemed occasion, Mom rallied from herconvalescence and insisted on having a bbq, accompanying us to severalmarkets to make sure we had all the right ingredients. Our guestsgathered around her and enjoyed sharing sentiments and stories.Nearly a month ago, we received a life changing call about her healthdeterioration and my son insisted to join me on a late night flight tothe west coast. He wanted to spend time with Grandma and while there,read her part of his torah portion for his bar mitzvah which will benext week. My husband took multiple flights a few days later to be ather bedside.Her three grandsons were her joy and brought so much pride to her.Grandparenting with physical challenges never phased her and the boysthrived in her presence. We had plans to return in April to celebratePassover with her and so she could continue to coach our son with hisreading.My father served as her caregiver for decades, without any hesitationor complaint. This was his honor and we should all be blessed to havewitnessed his dedication.Someone needs to call presidential candidates to inform them that Momwill be unable to accept the Joint Chiefs of Staff Role after the nextelection. She had great respect for military families and was an avidfan of political broadcasting. My support of the Military FamiliesNetwork is in recognition of such.May the Contessa finally have a chance to chat with Joan Rivers andarrange some more flowers with Aunt Judy.We will be observing shiva bicoastally as would be appropriate andwith rabbinical coordination since our rabbis are former colleagues.Our family requests that you perform a mitzvah in her honor.

Some of my fondest memories from middle and high school were from sitting in Mr Gaulkes band classes. He was a great man, extremely passionate about what he did and genuinely cared about the kids that he taught. He coined the phrase "having a burger on the moon" which, if you're an astronaut is great. Not so much if you play trumpet. He had clever ways of getting your attention via air mailed chalk board erasers if you were caught chatting at the wrong time. His energy made learning fun. He introduced me to the music of Maynard Ferguson. One of the greats whom I still listen to this day. Mr. Gaulke was truly one of a kind and will be greatly missed. Rest in peace my friend.

My condolences to Mark's family, friends and students. He was my most influential teacher in high school, the one who held high standards and put our feet to the fire to achieve excellence. Although it has been nearly 30 years, I vividly remember his intensity, and often "colorful" feedback. He knew how to motivate us insulated suburbanites and opened our eyes to a whole world of great music outside our 80's New Wave bubble. I owe my success and livelihood to the foundation he laid as a music educator. And of course he was just a cool guy, the quintessential lead trumpet player. This has been a tough loss and we all wish we had more time to express our gratitude to Mark and say goodbye, 'til we meet again.

He will be missed. My deepest Sympathies to the family.

I only had ONE favorite teacher in middle school for my 7th & 8th grade years at Alice Ott Middle School, and of course that ONE teacher was my band teacher, Mr. Gaulke. '85-'86 & '86- '87 I would have to claim was my most memorable years in school. One day Mr. Gaulke caught me smoking after school, and he didn't judge me, by any means. It wasn't till the next day whefn he pulled me aside from everyone else and actually talked to me like I was an individual that he had a great deal of concern for my health and abilities to continue to play musical instruments. Mr. Gaulke was in fact one of my biggest inspirations in life, and I still would owe him thanks today for my great love and appreciation for all kinds of music. Mr. Gaulke, this world has really lost a great man when we lost you from its physicyal grasp, but have no fears, the love we carry in all our memories and hdearts will be here for many more lifetimes to come. You will never be forgotten. Rest in peace Mark Gaulke My condolences to your closest loved ones and especially your family. You will be greatly missed

Mr. Gaulke was one of the best music teachers I've ever had. His care his students was evident every morning at 7 am for jazz band rehearsal but ABOVE ALL, he loved his family more than anything. I was very happy to hear that he had retired teaching music to be at his daughter's school. A memory that comes to mind is my sophomore year, we played the Jazz Band Classic at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall against some of the toughest competition (one of the bands we competed against actually tried to pull a little dance number during their set). We WON that night. I had NEVER felt more proud. A bonus to that night was it was the first time meeting my birth dad in ten years. It was by far, one of the best nights of my life. I'm just sorry I didn't make more of an effort to stay more in touch.RIP Mr.Gaulke

My condolences to to the Gaulke family. I had the great privilege of being a member of one of Mr. Gaulke's jazz ensembles and was sad to see him leave to the middle school at the end of my junior year. I remember how he always loved to hear us trumpets soaring above the group. And if one of us just happened to hit one of those special high notes he'd always have a grin underneath that mustache. I hope he can continue to jam with the angels. He only touched my life for a short while but he made a great impact and was truly a great teacher that gave me a lifelong appreciation for music. May you feel peace at this difficult time.

I had the pleasure of working in the David Douglas District along with Mark. I must say that I was pretty much in awe of Mark when I first met him. He had a quick smile but a large booming voice. If he was unhappy with what a student had done, the voice dropped a bit. If he was happy with the kids, the voice boomed with laughter. We had a lot of conversations and it was intensely obvious that the loves of his life were his daughters. The sun rose and set with the girls ! Ladies, he was PROUD OF YOU !My sincere condolences with your loss. It is tough to lose your Dad but he is not gone. He will be waiting for you someday. Until then, he will be there to listen so keep talking to him.......

First off my condolences & prayers to you the Gaulke family in this very difficult time. I wish you all as much comfort & peace possible in your time of healing.I had Mr. Gaulke as my band teacher from my DDHS years if 1987-1990. In that time I was taught by a great man that taught me to see more out if myself, than I try believed. He helped me find inner confidence to be a good saxophone player. He also made believe that to be better at something, you needed to not think it was about your personality, it was about hard work & practice. He had a presence I always looked to as being unique. Those glasses that tinted to black sunglasses, that grin, & that cool walk. He had a presence & it was only amplified by his true deep talent of being not only a great musician, but a great teacher. In closing, I would like to leave you with a poem I wrote in 2005 of someone dear leaving us to go to Heaven, but for us to know they'll always be with us. Thank you to you Mr. Gaulke for the man you were, & the man you'll always be...Remember Me for MeAs each morning approaches with the rising of the warm sun which climbs high shining its light and warmth to us all... Remember me for me. When the glowing moon then arrives to relieve the sun of its glorious day and thus releases the stars out to play... Remember me for me. When walking a pathway through a green fresh forest that creates solitude everywhere the eyes can see, take the air in slow with a breath of peace and tranquility and... Remember me for me. When standing on a beach where the sand ends and the ocean begins with the sunset that's painted the clouds purple and orange, feel the wind blow by and know that my presence is around you close and... Remember me for me. When life's wonders you observe and visit, enjoy all that you see and feel and hold close the way I then come to your thoughts. While smiling, cherish your world tightly and celebrate my life to all and thus never forget to... Remember me for me.

WE always competed on who would get the biggest & most fish. One trip in particular at Pine Hollow Reservoir Fred & I were bank fishing and long story short, I pulled in a 27", 8lb trout which gave me bragging rights the rest of the trip. Freddie couldn't believe it. So many wonderful times....he will be missed! RIP Fred! Love - Mona

I would prepare my snack and then we would eat silently together exchanging smiles every so often. I love that woman more than words can describe. She will be missed.

He through his generosity we have had a comfortable business home to work from. I/We always enjoyed his monthly visits to pick up his mortgage payments and looked forward to those visits. The children and extended family of his must be very proud of his legacy. He has been missed this last year in his monthly visits and can only feel good that he is finally with his lord and his wife.

Frances Caruso passed away peacefully on December 3, 2014. A beloved Sister, Friend, Wife, Aunt, and yes even a Great Great Great Aunt. That is four generations of family and celebrations and celebrating family, which she did as often as possible, with so much joy and fun in her heart, it made everyone happy and smile.Frances was born March 23, 1918, in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. She was the youngest of seven children. Her two oldest brothers were lost to the Spanish flu in 1918. Both passed away the month she was born. Her mother took ill shortly after her birth. Frances, as a new born couldn’t be with her mother because of her illness. Frances’ mother never really recovered from that flu and four years later she died during childbirth. Frances always said, with some sadness, she had no memory of her mother. The earliest memory was of Mary, her oldest sister, who cared for Frances as a truly devoted sister yet Frances felt Mary was her Mother; her mom. Every year on Mother’s Day Frances gave Mary a Mother’s Day card.Frances’ father had a general store and peddled fruits and vegetables to families farther out of the neighborhood, with lots of wonderful customers. But back in those days when anyone did well, they were not taxed or levied, they were harassed by the ‘black hand’, the mafia…One evening, after stabling the horse and locking up the vegetables and cart in the large storage cooler, walking down a dark alley he had to walk down to get back home, there were two men waiting to speak with him about his business and protection for his business and family. He warmly answered all their questions with a lie, thanked them for the information. Walked home alive and sat down and had a long talk with his brother.The result of that conversation moved the family to Portland a month later. In the fall of 1928, when Frances was only 10, her family made the journey by train. They moved into a large home in the close southeast neighborhood of St. Philip Neri Parish, a prevalently Italian Catholic neighborhood. Everyone in that neighborhood used to joke “if you threw a rock you would hit a relative.” Frances’ family was no different, wanting to be close to their family was important and they moved right next to an Uncle who had three boys and two girls. The girls, Mary and Frances became fast friends with Bess and Rose, Frances’ sisters. But the biggest part of the move was that one of those boys was named Joseph Caruso.Frances married Joe on March 24, 1938 at St. Josephs’ Cathedral in Vancouver, Washington. They were very much in love and is there any better reason than love, at least that is what the priest from St. Joseph’s felt. They chose the day as a perfect finish to a beautiful courtship because Joes’ birthday was March 25th and Frances’ birthday was March 23rd.Joe left for the war in 1940 and Frances moved in next door to Rose having just finished building their homes, right next to each other. They always said it like this: two brothers married two sisters and built two houses. Once Joe left for the war Frances rented out their home for a much needed income during those lean war years. She also kept books for a small business putting her college accounting certificate to good use. She had graduated from Commerce High School, now known as Cleveland High School today. Wanting to continue her education, which was a bit unusual and progressive for her time yet very important to her; she attended a prestigious two year accounting college, graduating with honors.When ‘the boys’ returned from the war, Frances put her certificate to good use; doing the books for Caruso Produce. She always said she enjoyed the work and it was always a hoot to work with her family. Living in Ladd’s addition, after Joe retuned from the war, she had her father move in with them when he took ill. She was a caring devoted daughter, who took on the responsibility of caring for her family without question or worry. Even if there were nursing homes in those days she would have never heard of putting her own father there when she was capable of caring for him herself; which was a pretty big deal since he was such a large powerful man and Frances was only 4’11” tall. (Her graceful, thin frame may have looked frail to some, those that knew her knew she was a strong and able lady.) She always had an open door for anyone to drop by and sometimes Marilyn would take her lunch break from St. Philip Neri grade school and Aunt Fran would make her a good lunch and if Marilyn brought a friend “the more the merrier of course” Frances would say.They had a sweet dog named Blackie. Blackie would often sit by her father and keep him company. Frances was so good to the all-black, cocker spaniel, even cooking his meals for him. But one day, one day when too many people with too many problems overwhelmed her and Blackie was barking barking barking…she rushed him out of the house and he never came back and she never owned another dog. Her sweet kind nature wouldn’t forgive herself.She was very giving to others with support and help, always ready and willing to give her time or anything she could. One of her favorite weekly things was visiting her friends at St. Marysville home for retired priest and nuns. She formed many life-long friendships and cared so tenderly for those who had no family to care for them. Her compassion and friendship for so many there earned her a lifetime remembrance there but even that honor meant very little to her, it was in the doing and the reward of friendship and love for the doing that meant so much to her. I guess that is why people loved Frances, so many people loved her, she touched so many people who were not her family but she made everyone feel like they were family to her; she was one of those rare people who were truly beautiful human beings inside and outOnce Joe took Frances to Italy, where they promptly lost a great deal of their luggage and most of her beautiful jewelry. Uncle Joe tried his best to fix that but she never cared about all the jewelry she lost, but it always made me laugh that she was mad she had to buy new luggage because her luggage didn’t match anymore. Frances threw amazing parties; New Years, BBQs, dancing during football games became the best parties. When-ever football was on half the family mostly female, would go into her large beautiful front room and she would play records and we would all dance. Aunties would teach us waltz or the jig and if we were lucky we would get a chance at the tarantella which Frances could dance like a ballerina, she would kick up her heals with the zest and joy of a zealous acrobat but look as graceful and easy as a swan.Her food was delicious, her cookies and treats for the holidays were always special and we all looked forward to them. Her generosity to her neighbors and friends during the holidays was great but went unnoticed by all but those who received those gifts, she kept her giving to herself because she did it not to receive thanks but because she wanted to, she was a special person like that always thinking of others and always putting others first.Joe and Frances never had any children but they doted on family and friends more than anyone could wish. Her generosity and kindness was a rare human trait. We are all blessed for having known her and our lives were made better for having her in them. She was a lifelong member of St. Philip Neri Parish, where her funeral & rosary will be held at 10:30am, December 8, 2014.In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be sent to the grotto or St. Mary’s Boys Home.

Naomi and Michael,I first met your father in 1977, when I was hired as his research assistant at the Oregon Bureau of Labor. This was my first professional position after college graduation, and I learned so much from him. I was fortunate to have had that experience early in my career, and am especially grateful that we also became friends. I also had the honor of organizing the celebration of his work there, when he retired after 22 years as the bureau’s research director. I remember learning so much about his fascinating history in putting together the timeline for that party. May his memory be for a blessing.Carolyn Cohen

Our fondest memory is how he was so proud of his kids and loving wife. They would come to the rink and watch their son's play and then he would also plan how he would share the day with his daughter for her events. He was always thinking about everyone and always has a kind word of encouragement. David always had a kind word and was a person you wanted to listen to when he spoke. David will be missed by all he came in contact with. He was an honest man who we respected very much. He will be missed every day and every time we see enter an hockey rink.

I was lucky enough to know Mr. Rowell for many years as he was my little league coach when I was a boy. He was always available to anyone and was very generous with his time. He was a good man and will be missed by many.

Dear Michael and Naomi,I remember your father over the years -- whenever I would visit Shaarie Torah, or see him around town, he always had a special greeting, an interest in everything going on, and a great sense of humor. I remember, too, his love for you both. May his memory always be a source of blessing, and may you be comforted among all the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem, Sura

To Herb's Family: I used to be a SMART Coordinator at Grout Elementay School when Herb volunteered. I always looked forward to see him and chat with him. I was watching the news tonight when I saw it was the Portland Opera's 50th Anniversary. It made me think, "I wonder how Herb is doing?" I googled him and found this. I am so very sorry for your loss and my heart goes out to all of you. Not only was Herb an amazing volunteer and much loved by the students, he once gave me two free tickets to the Opera. I don't remember what I saw, but I remember Herb's smile and generosity. I am so happy I met him! All my best,Erika Gitchell Woods

Aunt Edna always had a smile that lit up the room. She was quick witted and ready with a snazzy comeback, no matter what the conversation was about. Edna never batted an eye at her great nephews questionable humor, which made her all the more special to us. Thank you for the coin collection you started for Logan and thank you for your chile rellenos that you always made just because you knew that Ty and I liked them. You will surely be missed by many, especially by the Hart Family.

Dear Roscoe, Kathy & Megan, Steve & Therese, Nick & Conner, I'm so sorry to learn of Bob's untimely death. It is so sad and you all must be utterly devastated. I cherish the Christmas & Thanksgiving dinners we shared at Ev's and the opportunity to spend time with Bob, his sharp wit, love of dogs, sense of fun and his big, wonderful smile. As I am very late in reading the Newport papers, I won't be able to attend the Celebration of his Life tomorrow, but my heart will be with you along with fond memories of Bob (who could forget the Christmas we all had place cards with names from the show "Jersey Shore"!) He was special to each of you, dearest friend, brother, and uncle. My love and deepest condolences, Simms

I'm sorry for your great loss. I have nothing but fond memories of working for your Mom and Dad and with Doug, Pam and Chuck at the River Queen.

A woman of peace and serenity. She was always kind and welcoming to me when we use to 'hang out in the basement' during my teenage years.Ginny and I so much enjoyed our visits to the River Queen to eat and renew our friendships. Wonderful memories.I am saddened at her passing but enjoy the comfort of knowing God's plan of us and His love and our possibilities as His sons and daughters of which Sister Roylance I believe was one of His favorites.

I worked with Teddie from 1981 until her retirement. In the beginning I was intimidated by her. She was direct, never minced words, and spoke her mind. Very soon I came to treasure those qualities and learned so much from her about NCJW and so much else. A year or so ago, I had the pleasure of having lunch with her in her lovely apartment. We caught up and she shared her pride in her family. I was happy to have that time with her and to call her my friend. May her memory be a blessing!

We grew up with the Rudat family. Even after moving away we have remained close.A recent treasured memory of Lisa was the day of the families matriarch Mary Rudat's funeral. I asked Lisa about her own failing health, yet she had remained a constant caregiver to her mom until her passing. Lisa said she felt that opportunity was put in her path,because it was her purpose at that point in her life to do so. She also said that she welcomed it as her destiny. Lisa also very recently took a trip to visit her gravely ill brother Kelly in California.Lisa as much as you were in need of being nurtured or taken care of yourself, in the end you chose instead to be the giver you always were.Simply by being you Lisa,it was also your destiny to deeply forever touch all of us.Lisa We Love You, Rest Easy

My dear sis as try to accept this tremendous loss, I can hardly phantom my life with out your presence in it, I begin to get this feeling this can't be real, but I know it is. And then I start to imagine where you are roaming in the heavens with all of our loved ones that have gone before you, and then I start to feel my comfort level giving me peace, and then I know you're okay and I'll one day join you, just not yet but some day we'll be together again! Lisa I will never forget what a loving, sensitive, caring human being you were , and this is the greatest loss to your friends and family, because we no longer will be graced with your beautiful smile and friendship. I will always hold tight to my memories of growing up together and living through the ups and downs in our lives that gave us history. I love you and I'll forever miss you.... good-bye Lisa.

Many good times and memories.Lisa was one of my favoritesLisa stayed by her mother's side when she was very ill and recently passed. It was hard for Lisa to lose her mom and bestfriend. Claudia and Lisa were very close, and in the end they were there for each other.Lisa you're in a good, safe, caring place, I have memories of you and they will always be mine.
