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.

Nous avions été heureux lorsqu'elle s'était rapprochée de vous à Portland près d'une côte où le soleil se couche du "bon côté". Notre famille était honorée de la compter avec Edward parmi nos amis et c'était toujours avec plaisir que nous nous rencontrions en France ou aux USA. De tout coeur avec vous trois et vos familles.

Sending condolences to the family. I had actually been trying to get in touch with Ugo recently as I am Albert’s Grand Daughter and have been hoping to connect on the family and was not sure how and would love to get to know this side of the family . I would love to get in touch. So sorry for your loss, my few encounters with Ugo when I was young were memorable and he was such a great man.

 

Brent Kleintop posted on 2/19/19

So sorry for your loss. Tom shared many stories about Ugo with some of his work colleagues. He was obviously someone who lived a great life, raised a great family, was loved by many and will be missed. We wish the Raglione's peace in this difficult time.

I was so very sorry to hear of Lee's passing. I did get to visit her and she was resting comfortably that day. Please know I will always have a very special place in my heart for her. She was a remarkable and courageous woman. I hope the family gets a chance to treasure the memory of this fine person.

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.

I was shocked to hear about Telsa. I didn,t know she moved . She was a very special person. Totally dedicated to the family. It took an "angel" to be able to live in that household, with her aunts and grandmother, and take care of everybody in the following years. Please accept my condolences. i would like to have the address of Franklin or Cherie.------PERFECT OBITUARY! ------Cousin, Jessie

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

Sonny, as his Mother, Father, sisters and brothers knew him had a full and colorful life full of loving close family. Always one of my closest uncles no matter how the miles separated us. My Mom would giggle like a teenager when he called. He is missed.

 

Laura Simon Champa posted on 1/6/19

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.

Alter called me one evening. I was so happy because I just read read his book. He told me I was the epitome of everything he wanted as a child. I loved him and he was my hero. R.I.P. Dear Alter.

 

Scott Phoenix posted on 12/15/18

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 meet Alter this year and I had the joy of visiting him and sharing one of his home cooked vegan meals.Alter was the most humble, kindest, loving man I have ever known and I will miss my beautiful friend Alter very much. He was a precious!

 

chris reed posted on 12/14/18

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.

 

Janet Nero posted on 12/13/18

Alter was a remarkable man. I first met him at my club, one of our members worked at a school he spoke at. He should serve as a teacher to all. We are stronger than we think and can survive and be thankful. He will be missed.

My Dear Scabble King, You taught my family and I so much. You did not teach us just about loving each other and those around us, but about respect, friendship, accountability, hard working ethics, and perseverance. You put life into perspective and we are all forever changed for it. Thank you for everything and for pushing me to improve my Scrabble game. I will forever have a place for you in my heart. I love you dear friend. Rest In Peace my Friend!

Al had a profound impact on me as a teacher, and on the lives of countless students at South Salem High School. I feel like I've lost a Grandfather. His work sharing his experiences during the Holocaust has been so important to building understanding across generations. I shall miss him always. Especially that smile and the twinkle in his eyes.

 

Nathan Schwartz posted on 12/12/18

Thank you Mr. Weiner for keeping the memory of the Holocaustalive for children in our schools and for telling your story to others to insure it never happens again. Rest In Peace.

I so enjoyed knowing Francine in the French conversation group on Saturday mornings and in a smaller group where we met in homes. She was a delight and although she knew French better than most of us she was generous in only helping when asked. I have moved away now so do not attend but I treasure her friendship in the two groups

 

Denise della Santina posted on 12/10/18

What an incredible life. Though I knew few of the details, there was never any doubt that Francine was a woman of wit, grace, curiosity, intellectual prowess and generosity, all of which she showed and shared in countless (and often surprising) ways. I'll miss her smile, her parade of gorgeous scarves and pins, her perfect posture and her strength. There will always be a hole on the left side of the back row of the gym, and in our hearts.

Marie was such a class act and so sweet and warm. We all grew up together and attended St. Phillip Neri. Paul was my brother Tom’s best friend and Susan and I were kindered spirits often biking around Ladds and Laurelhurst together. Oh the fun we all had together. Marie always had a smile on her face and was so kind with her words of wisdom. I am sadden to hear this news and am in the Midwest and cannot attend the services or I would be there to celebrate her life. She has a special place in my heart as one of the “Holy Name moms” and my love and sorrow go to all the kids. Peace and love to such a wonderful family.

Joe and I as well as children, Collin and Julie have often remembered our visit many years ago to Portland. Your Father and Mother were very gracious hosts as was your Grandmother while we were there. We still laugh at the memory of Aunt Madeleine making her “quick quick sauce” and how delicious it was! Your parents taking us to see the devastation at Mt. St. Helen. We always enjoyed seeing your Dad whenever he came to visit either Uncle Gino and Aunt Mary or Aunt Natalie. So many lovely memories we have!

To the family and friends, I am very sorry to here of the death of your loved one. God told Isaiah what to write as recorded at Isaiah 26:19. It says: " Your dead will live. My corpses will rise up. Awake and shout joyfully, You residents in the dust! For your dew is as the dew of the morning, And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." This will happen soon. In the mean time we can take comfort from the Holy Scriptures. Jehovah's Witnesses would be happy to study the Bible with you. You can make a request online or ask any one of Jehovah's Witnesses to make arrangements.

In 1960 I moved to Portland to be with my Aunt Evelyn Hedlund. I met Barbara at Laurelhurst Presbyterian church and was an inspiration to me in all she did! I especially enjoyed her book reports and fellowship with her ar the monthly Circle meetings. To this day she is an inspiration to me and I look forward to that special day when we shall all worship our Lord and Savior in heaven!

 

Jennifer Hooley posted on 10/22/18

My family attended Laurelhurst Presbyterian when I was growing up, which is where I met dear Barbara and Hal. My favorite memory is years later running into them at the ice skating rink at Lloyd Center and her comment as she watched the skaters , with a beam on her face. She pictured herself skating like they did one day in heaven, leaping and graceful. I am sure heaven is much greater than that for her, but I love thinking of her that way now! Love to her family and friends, and see you later, Barbara :)

We received the news of Susan’s passing just before our family renunion in Prestin (near Schwerin in Germany) and in the presence of family members from South Africa, Germany and the USA we were able to say a prayer and read a Psalm in our private family chapel in her name.

"Dirk and Bill" were the best PPB and ROCN partners on the planet. Both were often called as expert witnesses on drug trafficking organizations, and drug dealing techniques. At Bill's retirement from PPB, Dirk corrected Bill's wife on how many creams to put in his coffee--he spent more time with Bill than Bill's wife did. They were inseparable, and "the very best!"

Cathy was that quintessential caring person who loved her family, friends, animals and our country dearly.

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

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. Our son died in 2011, during our case with Mike. Mike showed much tenderness towards us.

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.

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. LOVE max

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.

I knew Greg through his volunteer service with the Buckman Community Association and SE Uplift Neighborhood Coalition. I'll remember him as being a kind, decent person who valued his community and worked to build community. I have found memories of riding home with him on bikes following meetings. I also will miss seeing him walking his dog through the neighborhood. My thoughts are with Greg's family and friends.

Brett, you are the most confident person I have ever know. It has taken me a while to pin point what exactly defines you in my prosoective. But confidence is defiantly it. 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. I thank you often and will contenue to do so. You were a very positive part of my life. Still are and forever will be. Thank you Brett.

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.

Almost a year ago at a time when I was very down and out, a friend of a friend took me up to the farm. That's when I met Tony and JoJo. We All got along like old friends from the start. Of course anyone would agree Tony's Awesome personality and caring manner made it hard to resist liking him . After some time Tony offered me a job and a place to live . His best friend JoJo and I are very close as we're Tony and I. He was a true Blessing to my life and I will forever remember how he saved me and helped me recouperate from living on the streets. And enabled me and encouraged me to keep pushing forward on this ride called life. He was one of the most gratious and Caring people I ever met. Tony I'm so sorry this happened but I'm pretty sure you kicked back smoking a cigar watching the "Ducks" play. I will miss you very much and Thank You for all you've done for me so "In your Memory" I planted a miniature Red Rose Bush in that beautiful Rose Garden that you loved so much.

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

Dan Keene posted on 2/10/18

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.

She was a wonderful cook and enjoyed reading about food as well: books on the history of salt, tea, coffee, etc. she made fabulous scones which were loved by all. We had lots of conversations in the years she lived with us about our respective childhoods, art projects, some of the books she was reading, family, etc. I thank you , Pat, for the wonderful woman who became my wife.

I counted CJ as one of my close friends on the Pemi staff during our years there together. I treasured his sense of humor; to this day I still read his Bean Soup account of a chaotic Mt. Cube trip in 1991. I have thought about him warmly through the years and am deeply grieved to hear of his passing. Thank you for your friendship, CJ, and may God bless and keep you.

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.

 

Scott Pike posted on 1/18/18

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.

Martha Lesch aka Fatty Ass posted on 1/16/18

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.

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.

This year was so different, it didnt feel right. I feel like life has been testing me so much lately but i know Alex is looking down on me and watching over and everyone he cared about so deeply. 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. I pray everyday for everyone struggling and your family dealing with the loss of you. I love you always

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 34:18 None 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.

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!

I have been flooded with wonderful memories of your dear mom and soon I will write them down and send them your way. We had lots of adventures together and I have been reflecting on those. 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

Isaiah is a kind hearted young man, who has such a warmth in his soul that you could feel it whenever he walked into the room. He has a great sence of humor, as well as such a drive and passion for life. I know that Isaiah is still with everyone in spirit, that he will continue to live in our hearts; this isn't goodbye, it's only I'll see you later. My heart hurts for his family during this difficult time and my deepest condolences go out to everyone effected by this tragic loss.

Dear Randy and Barry, Time certainly has a way of moving very fast . I am deeply sadden of the loss of both of your parents .Mom and I loved your family very very much from visiting to their great cooking and sharing all their yummy treats with us. Our greatest pleasure was living next door to you for many many years in Eastmoreland I shall always treasure our conversations playing ball visiting in the front room sharing a snack. 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.

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.

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. If you remember where we lived we don't live there anymore. Love you, The Schauer's

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.

I am his brother and all 8 sisters brother. Friendship so deep..countless overnights, flashing lights and speaking on walkue talkies fro. Our windows 200 yards away. 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

Scott's mother, Barbara, and I are cousins by marriage, sharing our Aunt Lena Amato Oreste, and Uncle, Raymond J. Oreste. I had the pleasure of knowing Scott for all of his life. His love for all of his family, especially his Great-Uncle Ray, and for cooking and fishing and the beautiful Oregon outdoors; as well as his love for attending concerts and theater, was well known. Scott was a loving son and a warm friend, and we will miss him very much. We know he is in Heaven, happy once again.

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.

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.

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.

I remember Arne for his quirky humor, tinged with a side of irony and whimsy behind which sat the main course of love. He was a beloved first cousin of my mother, Tanette, who predeceased Arne; I imagine he is telling her a joke right now. Arne was larger than life and we all loved his visits to SF and marveled at his artwork. He will be greatly missed and also admired for living life to the fullest and loving well. Please accept our conferences as you both mourn him and celebrate his beautiful life. Love, Steve and Linda

A painting that Arne created of our children hangs above our fireplace. It not only reminds us of when our children were young - it reminds us of the day we met Arne. He charmed our four children in such a way that he was able to capture their very essence. The laughed and clowned around and had so much fun. I will always remember and treasure the time he spent with us and the treasure he left us with his art.

I am so sad to hear this. I was so excited to meet Arnie in person at his studio when I first moved to the area. He was so kind to look at my artwork and tell me his thoughts. He was such an inspiration to all who knew him and he will be so missed. My greatest compliment was when a fellow artist told me she thought my work reminded her of Arnie's..

Arne will always hold a special place in my heart. He inspired me from afar through his books and paintings. As it came to pass, I eventually had the opportunity to take a workshop with him here in Portland. His joy for painting and his lovely kind and funny ways, endures in me. Such a wonderful man. He will be missed forever, but his paintings will continue to inspire us and our memories will keep him close.

I am saddened today at the loss of Arne. My memory of him was thru his art workshops. He had a good natured way to pointing out all the ways my painting could be improved short of starting over. We laughed alot, learned about Watercolor and Art in general. He may have moved on but will always be with me in memory. Goodbye my friend.

I had the great pleasure of being Arne's driver for 1 week when he was presenting a watercolor workshop and jurying the NWWS show. He was a witty and wise instructor, always positive and helpful, light-hearted and fun-yet his message was chock-full of important concepts and observations about the making of art. He will be missed by so many people who had the joy of watching a master at work and play!

Thirty years ago my wife bought me Arne's painting of the New York City Library. I was going to be 60 years old, as was Arne. He was able to paint a small 60 on one of the Library exterior bulletin notices. What a wonderful person !

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.

Three of the most enjoyable and instructive hours of my life were spent with Arne five years ago in his studio critiquing my watercolors. What a wonderful manner he had with people, especially his students! I will sorely miss Arne.

I remember fondly taking a workshop in Houston at the Watercolor Society that Arne taught. He was a favorite teacher and inspiration to my teacher in Houston, Cholla who passed away about 3 years ago. It was on her recommendation I took his class and I learned a lot and enjoyed his humor and knowledge of watercolor.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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 Soldiers I'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.

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.

Your loss is also mine, We have been friends for 76 plus years, Jean and I, and I wouldn't trade my friendship with her. We have laughed and cried, and I wouldn't trade my friendship with Jean for anything. We celebrated so many good times. Graduated from Springfield High School together and attended all our reunions. Friendship with a Smile. Love to all her family, and thanks for the wonderful care she had when it was needed.

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 don't know if anyone will read this but I felt it was important to say how kind she was and how much I adored her. She was a very special lady and I will never forget her and her husband.

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.

Our dear Mary, we will miss you and thank you for all you did for us since my visit to Portland when you took us in. We loved meeting you at the Carcinoid conference in 2006 and loved that you took such good care of Maria when she had her surgery in Portland. 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. I took a video so I could show everyone just how special you are! We will always love you, Mary. Now you are with your beloved Delia! Sincerely, Maria and Bill Manewal

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.

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.

I am forever grateful for the wonderful memories I have of spending time with you and Grandma. From my childhood days of having you magically pull quarters out of my ear and taking rides in the boat with the family, to spending time with everyone in Milwaukee while visiting with Great Grandma, these memories will stay with me for the rest of my life. May your memory always be for a blessing. Love always from Jon and Colleen.

Dear Carol, Diane, Carisu and Art I 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.

Mel, you were one hell of a guy. You were a great friend to those around you. I remember our bantering back and forth about the value of your 1962 Chevy pickup. I could never spend what you thought it was worth. Rest in peace old friend.

I will always remember your Dad during holidays at the flower shop. He would take a bouquet and a few balloons and walk out the front door like he bought them. He then came around the back and did it again. It just cracked him up. He was our walking billboard.

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. Please know that his "other" family has not forgotten him.

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.

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.

Eric and I met thru a mutual friend in the early eighties. He was performing then at Rimsky-Korsikoff coffee house. We became fast friends which continued for many years, and after direct contact consulted over phone conversatios for years. Lost touch and always remembered him with great fondness. 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.

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

Debbie was an inspiration to us all.

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.

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.

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 will miss our lengthy discussions on all kinds of issues on Facebook and before that, on Usenet discussion groups. She was a remarkably effective debater on the topics in which we participated on the newsgroups, a champion of truth, and a library of facts. As we became further acquainted on Facebook, our discussions ventured to more personal matters than middle eastern politics, and our friendship grew to the point of being close friends, despite never having met face to face. I will miss Deborah terribly, and I take comfort in the fact that one day we WILL meet 'face to face." Until then, may she rest in peace, and may her memory be a source of strength and inspiration for those she leaves behind.

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

Debby was always happy when she was here on the coast as the cover picture shows. She could sleep well and enjoyed being near the ocean or the Columbia River. She loved the ocean better. This is a selfie with the Columbia River and Washington State behind her. She is wearing my white with purple stripe blouse that I gave her. I will always remember just the fun we had. I miss my sister.

Jill, Sally and family, I am so sorry to learn of your loss. Words can't express how much I appreciated Dieter, and will miss his presence in my life. 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.

Sorry for the loss of your dear loved one, When the enemy death strikes, your grief can be great, though you may or may not hope in the resurrection. Take comfort in knowing that the Bible says, at (Acts 24:15; jw.org)“I have hope toward God, which hope men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection.” So, it is possible to see our loved ones again.

So sorry to the family for their loss. In 1980 I worked in the Gift department at the Vancouver Mall Zell Brothers. A senior in HS, I still remember his exuberant energy and love for the store. He was always very nice to me. I will always remember and thank him for the opportunity to be around such great people and loverly things. I was a mere farm Girl and working there changed my life. It made me appreciate the finer things in life!

I've thought about it for a week and a half, and can't come up with adequate words.

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.

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.

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

At the blowing of the wind and in the chill of winter; We remember them. At the opening of the buds and in the rebirth of spring; We remember them.

At the beginning of the year and when it ends; We remember them. As long as we live, they too will live, for they are now a part of us as We remember them. When we are weary and in need of strength; We remember them. When we are lost and sick at heart; We remember them. When we have decisions that are difficult to make; We remember them.

I met Jane when my kids were in Cedar Loge at Mt. Tabor MS. She and her sister Ellen always were smiling and polite when I was in the class helping and during Mr. Collins end of the year camping trip. She was so fun-loving and always acknowledged everyone even those she didn't know personally. My heart goes out to the whole family and am praying for all of you.
