Jay will be missed by many. Dearest Gina and family, we send our deepest condolences. This message cannot ease your pain or sorrow in losing Jay. We know this well. But we also know that you all are so blessed to have been the center of his life and also know that we are honored to have so many shared memories of our time spent with the Carlson family. Love, the James family. Gina I am so sorry for your loss. You and the boys are in my thoughts and prayers. Love to you and your family. It is inconceivable to realize this information about Jay is true. This gentle man was such an important person for all the reasons those who were lucky enough to call him their friend, knew him to be.
His forever smile that caused anyone seeing it caused them to smile too. Behind that smile was an easy going, willingly helpful man. Gina, both Nelson and I are so sorry you, your boys and family are enduring this tremendous loss. All of us who knew this man are most certainly sharing this sadness with you. Jay was a light and a friend and mentor to many of us. I am so sorry for the loss of your husband, father and our friend. I was so saddened to hear of Jay's passing. I remember him as being larger than life.
I know he loved his family and his work and it showed. I am privileged to have been in the same industry as Jay. As a Past-President myself, Jay was always just a phone call away. He was part of a great group of other leaders cut from that same cloth. The building industry will truly miss the presence of Jay Carlson. Behind this great man is great family.
The home builder members in Louisiana will be forever grateful to Jay for his assistance with Chinese Drywall and I will be grateful I was his friend for years afterward. I will never forget you, Jay, them most unselfish and dedicated man I ever knew. All of us in the building industry owe you a debt of gratitude for all you have done for us.
And as your friend, I will miss you every day. You were my kind of guy, and a vanishing breed of man. A great example to all of us, who pay attention. My old friend Jay Carlson is gone. He was such a loving and caring person. All that got to meet and know him knew that immediately. Involvement was his forte.
And he always had his brain in gear before he spoke. The memories and laughs that we have are remarkable. Farewell my friend, I will always think of you until we meet again. All my love and admiration to your wonderful family. I am so fortunate to have known the Carlson clan Bob, Randy and Jay.
Martina, My condolences to you and your family. We worked together at JCP Duluth for many years and he was always there for me, everytime my daughter Madison came to the store she had to go to his office to see him and he always took the time to visit. He was a kind gentleman, I remember the day he was going to become a grandpa, he was so proud and happy!
Love to you and your family at this difficult time, he will be sadly missed!!! I was just a young guy when I first met Adolph. He was good friends with my parents, John and Brenda Graves. I grew up going over to his lavish exquisite home, Tetley Plantation. To this day, I remember quotes, sayings, advice he expressed to me and my father that have struck with me to this day.
I wish he could see me now, grown, and involved heavily into the art world. He was a man of much inspiration. A lot of wisdom and determination. A man who once called himself my 'Uncle'. I wish and hope he's proud. We had been a neighbor of Adolf for about 5 years, and had always admired his "grit and determination" in keeping up with his long walks, doing his gardening and tending to his "wall".
As he and I were the same age, it was always a reminder to me to get off the sofa and go do something! He was always willing to give advice re any garden issues, in a very helpful way that was appreciated. He will be missed in our community. As a fellow combat vet, it was always great to see and talk with him. I miss him already. Peace be with you Ray.
I got to know Ray 22 years ago when our paths crossed in the real estate business. My memories of him are of a consummate professional who was serious about his work while conveying warmth and sincerity in all relationships. The service held in his honor, with so many attending, was beautiful and paid him the respect and honor that was certainly due to a very special man for his faithfulness to his marriage and family, his service to country and his dedication to his profession.
Gino, Rest in peace, my friend. You were my bosom buddy in our freshman class at Colgate and will always be remembered. Denise, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at the loss of Ray. Maye he rest in peace. Our deepest sympathies Denise, and to your your family, on the loss of your dear Ray. May God comfort you at this sad and difficult time. Denise and Family, My deepest sympathy. I first met Ray when we were in a service club together in Was lucky to have played many rounds of golf with him at Kingsway.
He was a great guy and always fun to be around. I am keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers. My deepest condolences to Deni and family. Ray was the sweetest man and a big asset to CB. Very sorry to hear of Ray's passing. My deepest sympathys go out to his family. He will be sorely missed. Denise, we are so very sorry for your loss. Ray was a great guy and please know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. I worked with Ray for 20 years at C. Sunstar-Morris Realty, 15 of those as part of the management team. We shared some trials and many triumphs along the way.
I cherished him like a brother. Love and Sympathy to the family. I have lost a dear friend. We are very sad to hear of Ray's passing. We enjoyed Ray as a friend. To Denise and family you are in our thoughts and prayers. I enjoyed working with Ray and have missed him since he retired. My prayers and sympathy to Denise and his family!
We'll never forget the fun times we had on the golf course, and in the club house with Ray. No matter how poorly we played, Ray always kept us in high spirits!! His laughter and kindness will never be forgotten. We are so sadden by ray 's passing but so happy to have called him a friend! Prayers for Denise and family. Ray was a joy to know and he was most professional to work with as a Realtor. He will be missed by many in our community. Blessings to his family My heart goes out to Scott and his family. We had a long distance romance while he was working for Mel Fisher in Key West and I was working and living in Sanibel.
I always thought he was the one I let get away. A beautiful person inside and out. So shocked by his passing, especially at such a young age. Love and miss you dear Scott. Ray was a long time friend and fellow Realtor to so many of us. Something very special about Ray was his kindness and ability to listen well. As VP of Coldwell Banker Sunstar, he was very frugal and careful about expenses but he also cared about the success of the firm and the agents. Always easy to have conversations with him and also benefit from his knowledge and great common sense.
He was so proud of his wife and children. He will be so missed. Prayers of comfort for his family and all this community who called him their friend. Prayers and condolences to the Matot family. He was an asset to our community and a wonderful father and husband. We are here for you Denise. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Denny, Jason and Kim. We will miss his smiling greeting on the golf course. He was a great friend and wonderful Husband and Father. The memories you shared will last forever.
Denise, Kim, and Jason Our most sincere condolences to all the family. Ray was surely one of a kind, and the most diligent, caring, organized person I knew. I am so glad I was able to introduce him to Don Randolph and convince him to bring his talents to Coldwell Banker Sunstar all those many years ago. It was a match made in Heaven, and I'm sure he is still watching things from above now. An infectious laugh always enjoyed Friday nights in Apopka. Rest In Peace, my friend. Denise, Sarah and I were shocked and saddended to hear about Ray's passing. We have so many great memories from Kingsway with you both.
Please let us know if we can do anything. Connie, your Keller Williams family would like to extend our deepest condolences to you and your family. Our hearts are saddened by your loss and our thoughts and prayers are with you. My deepest condolences to the family, may you find comfort in prayer and the beautiful words of Revelation Connie and family sorry for your loss.
John was a great guy and always remember the fun times with you and him. Allan and Lisa Major. My Aunt Jean was a very beautiful and strong women. I don't think I've ever seen her without her face on. She always looked like all she had to do was grab her keys and go. I grew up with her daughter Jodi. We spent many a weekend together.
We always had a lot of fun. I loved her cooking. She was the one who taught me how to water ski. Jodi and I spent the ride home counting horse fly bites LOL She's always been awesome to me and I've never seen her be anything other than kind to anyone else. My deepest sympathy goes out to Uncle Floyd, Jodi, Kelly, and the rest of the family.
My thoughts and prayers are with y'all. We'd get into all kinds of stuff, we always had a lot of fun, until Aunt Jean found out! LOL She was always awesome to me! In fact I've never seen her be anything other than kind to anyone. Aunt Jean was the one who taught me how to water ski! Jodi and I spent the ride home counting horse fly bites! Even though I haven't seen her in years, knowing that she's gone My deepest sympathy to Uncle Floyd, Jodi, Kelly and the rest of the family. May God bless you and your family during these difficult times. Both Linda and me are thinking of you. Scott was a friend, roommate, and shipmate on the Carl Vinson.
We were plankowners together and I have many memories of he and I. I spent 2 weeks leave at his house with his mother, sister and brother whom I have often thought of. My condolences to his wife, sons, parents and siblings. My Aunt Jean my second mother. I have so many wonderful memories of Aunt Jean that I could write a book. I learned how to be a caring loving Mother from Aunt Jean. She truly lead by example not just words.
Had it not been for Aunt Jean and Uncle Floyd, my life could have definitely taken a turn, but she was always there for me from the day I was born. I'm so grateful that we have our family memories of dinners, holiday Gatherings, and vacations with Aunt Jean. Those happy times are embedded in my heart forever! Rest In Peace Aunt Jean. I'll love you Forever. Your Neice, Kim Greenfield. This beautiful lady raised a beautiful daughter who has touched many lives with her kindness and gentle heart. Jodi was so proud of her mom. She will be forever in our hearts. What I remember most about Sabra was her warm smile, twinkling gorgeous eyes and beautiful soul.
May she rest in peace with the Lord. Peace be with the family and friends who will miss her so very dearly. We have only met you a few times, but we know that you raised a remarkable Daughter. Her name is Kelly and she is married to my son. She is kind,patient and caring. I would guess that many of these qualities came from you. We are so sorry that your life is over on this earth, but faith tells us that you are in an even better place now.
My thoughts and prayers are with your family and especiallu Kellly. I have lots of fond memories of your mom from my childhood. She was always happy, generous and kind. I am proud to have known her and offer my condolences in your loss. Our condolences to the family.
Florence was always a pleasure to talk to. She was just always nice and we were truly blessed to have had her in our lives. Just now saw this and was very saddened to hear of her passing away. I am very sorry to hear of your loss and would like to offer my condolences. I hope that during this time, you may find comfort in the words of Psalm My deep regards to the family. Tuesday, November 6, Hi Carmen, my sweet baby, the Love of my life, I miss you so much, and it is no fun being here without you. I did not realize and I know you did not realize just how much I needed you.
You guided me when I could not make decisions, and I need that from you now, send guidance to me from up above because I know you are up there looking down on me. I would rather be there with you, than here alone. Even with other people around you know I never related to others well, I only related to my wife. And even though you know, I have had more than one wife, I hope the Lord God in Heaven lets us be with the one we loved the most, that is you, even as a spirit.
I know some people wonder why it is you that I say that you were my best wife, but we know why, and I still love you even now. I have a terrible time living without you. I am hoping to take your ashes as we had planned as soon as this lease is up. I love you dearly baby and I miss you so, but I have to say happy birthday. In addition, even though you were behind the wheel when you wrecked the car on your birthday last year, that was no big beal. What they did to you at that hospital is what bothers me. That Saturday you told me you had to have all of your rings on your fingers, I under stand why now, I got them all off, but I think someone at that hospital stole your diamond earrings, as they cannot be found.
If you know where they are, give me a clue, I have practically emptied the house getting ready to move in six more months. I love you my baby doll, Kisses for you. I am sorry to say but you 3. I believe brownie new you were going to die, and she died the day before you. I feel she mourned herself to death. I made a nice pet cemetery that just looks like a real nice flower bead to everyone else, they are now 5 piglets buried together, 4 foot deep, sealed in plastic boxes, as we always did them, I put there Emotional Support Animal tags in with them.
I talked to you in the house all the time as if you are right here with me, because I can feel your presents in the house. I discovered a phone message you left me while you were in the hospital before you came home, it was in the voice mail, and I found it the week after you departed for a better place. I will take your ashes with me when I move I move, but I am not sure I can let them go just yet, it is how I keep you with me. I am not sure I can spread them like we discussed, but I will not put you in the Pacific Ocean as you were afraid of the water.
You where always so beautiful, even as you aged, I loved and love you always, your loving husband. We miss you more than words can tell. We look into the night sky to see your shining star in Heaven and we know that you are with Jesus and our family. We love you brother Shaun was a friend and partner to our club and was always willing to help.
Never saw Shaun without a smile. He was a good person and friend. We will all miss him. So sorry to hear of the loss of Sue. She was a beautiful woman inside and out. We will miss her dearly. I know she is happy and resting in peace. Our sympathy goes out to Glenn and families. She will be sorely missed. Now I know where Julian's effective kindness originated. My thoughts are with the family. My deepest condolences to the family for your loss. Our Heavenly Father Jehovah gives us a comforting thought when He tells us that soon death will be "swallowed up forever.
So sorry to hear of your loss. Sue and I worked countless hours at Edgewater Church to get our finances straightened out many years ago. I got to know many of her family members and her husband. I pray your good memories comfort you in the days and weeks ahead. My condolences to the family and all who loved Billye Sue. The seeming finality of death is what makes it especially difficult. But we can have confidence that God yearns to bring death to an end 1 Corinthians Sue you were a wonderful ex-neighbor of Bobbie and I in the past in Lexington, Ky. We will miss you, and may your soul forever rest in peace.

Where do I begin? Lisa and I shared so many good times, so many memories. She has been a great and long term friend to me. We shared so much. The support only special friends can give one another. We shared Holday and family memories, belly dancing, a love of all things spiritual and metaphysical. I miss you Lisa, in spite of how clearly I feel and hear your loving presence, earthy pragmatism, humor, and unconditional acceptance of everything life threw at you.
I am grateful to know your loving spirit is still with us. The Peters family, Condolences to your family on the passing of your beloved husband and father. May God be with all of you in this time of sorrow. Met her 26 yrs ago she flew down to meet me , by the end of the weekend , before we had to say goodbye I asked her if she would be interested in changing her last name , she said Yes. My memories of Lisa are a treasure to me.
She made a difference in this world. Lisa was an amazing person with an amazing personality. She was my mentor, my friend and a part of my family. Every time we saw her she had a smile on her face, regardless of how she felt. She was a plethora of knowledge and experience, but always stayed grounded and stayed true to who she was as a person. We miss her deeply and feel blessed to have had her as a part of our family, if only for a short time. From high school silliness, to doing my hair for my wedding day, to reconnecting on face book and our daily chats throughout your illness, you were never a complainer.
Always see things on the bright side, always see the good. Fiercely loyal, honest, brave and a protector to those she loved.
I will miss our chats, our goofy times, the times that you must have been hiding pain and sickness to give ME advice and guidance, that selfless, loving person that you were. I know you'll always be around.. I have so many great memories of Lisa , she was such strong and amazing lady and with so much compassion! Her stories and life experiences , i will trully miss her , she was a good friend and helped in any way she could! She was a nut too , would make me laugh!
Sure will miss the times working together! May you rest in peace my friend! Giana and I loved you as a friend a family member and a teacher. There is and never will be a person of your vibrance on this Earth. Your a shining star for all to see and admire. We love you and dearly miss you!!! But we also know you are a whisper away Fly with the Angels and soar.
Thank you for being you because of that you have touched so many people in your life, though out our relationship you always put others before you. Since the time you have gotten sick you never once said why me but instead we will try something else you continued to stay positive and so strong you got that from your mom! Now the time has come for your new Journey may it be everything you expected and more Always and 4ever my beautiful friend. She was able to touch peoples souls in a way I e never experienced before.
She was so warm and loving. She will be missed greatly by many. My deepest condolences to Joe and the rest of her family and friends.

Hi my mother told me my father's name was Van Harper when I was 15 years old. Harper is my real father. I am trying to find out if someone could let me know something so I can be sure this man is in fact my natural father. I hope someone in her family reads this. I often thought of Mrs. Stout over the years and today I was sitting at my desk and thought I would do a google search on her to see if I could find her I am sad to know she passed away.
I have such fond memories of her. I remember her laugh like I heard it yesterday and her beautiful smile. She was so patient with all the students.

I remember talking to her about her daughter who passed away and how much that hurt her. I remember her sharing with me her album when she sang. She taught me how to cook and clean and I was very successful in the Culinary Arts profession in large part to her. I want whoever to read this to know she made a huge difference in my life and I am sure many others. I would love to e-mail her family if someone can tell me how to reach them via e-mail. My name is Andy and my e-mail is asm90eagle yahoo.
I am sorry to hear of her passing. We had many good chuckles together. Our sincerest condolences on the loss of your mother. She was a beautiful soul. The Holway and Mealy families grew up with each other on Sagamore Beach. We've reconnected after any years and the memories of Dick and family will always be a part what Sagamore Beach so special. You said it all and I agree with every word. I would send a letter myself but the Web address I have for letters does not work and has not worked for my last three attempts. The e-mail address for letters is opinion thesunchronicle.
You can access it at the top of this page or in Opinion under the Local News pull-down menu. I tested them both today and they work. First of all, I would like to thank my sister, Lynne R.

And I hope all will send out their prayers to the Ronco and Rotundi families, who together have shared this difficult phase in life. I would also like to thank Zazzymystic, whoever she be, and Brian Crandall for responding to my letter. This message is to anyone who was a member of the Class of at AHS: The 45th reunion will be held Sept.
If you have not been contacted, please let us know. We would love to hear from some people from the great '50s era. People love through their hearts and their feelings. They want to be with the ones they feel safe and secure with. Howard, when I said you had blinders on, it meant you have tunnel vision, and that is something you were taught by society. Rich, so you want to know what I think is "fine and dandy. More to the point, though, I like reading the postings from people who truly care about each other and about people they don't even know.
I especially like the people who write to stand up for what are truly American and Christian or other religious values not your twisted versions. If I complain a lot, it's because you say so many objectionable things. May I never end up so filled with bitterness and anger. Yes Maryann, they did choose to be called those names as well as to be gay.
Just like I chose to be called a right-wing nut job or a hawking warmonger or a Bush butt boy. Just like a liberal chooses to be called a left-wing whacko or a pinko or a tree-hugging woosie or a socialist dork. When we choose, we also choose the baggage that goes with that choice. I or you can no more stop the name calling than anyone else can.
If you talk the talk, you walk the walk. I don't call them those names. I only say they chose to live an unnatural life of their own accord. Yes, they have the right to do it but that does not make it right. When I rant on against it I feel sorry for them and hope and pray they see the error of their choice.
That is what I pray for. I do not condone that which I think is wrong. I would not condone abortion or murder or rapists or purse snatchers or armed robbers, etc. It does not change the way I think or what I was taught, so it can't change me. Yes, I have spoken to homosexuals, ones close to me. Some of them even question that I may be right about judgement day.
They say this because we just don't know for sure, do we Maryann? Sin is sin and it has to be forgiven.

I would not want homosexuals coaching my grandkids or leading their Scout troop or teaching them gym. That is the way I feel and that is the way it is in Rich Howard World. Will I turn my back on them if in need or drowning or whatever? No, I will not. Do I condone men sleeping with men and women sleeping with women, and by "sleeping" you know what I mean? Not now, not ever. Maybe I will be the one to burn in hell for this stance but I do not think so. Let us just agree that you cannot change me and I cannot change you and that we agree to disagree, OK?
Howard, if it is true that being gay is a condition caused by the influence of the family, and there are gays in your family, hmmmm, one must wonder what role you played in making these people gay! And surely when you speak of "every man in her life" as being "kind and loving," you are NOT speaking of yourself because if this hatred that spews from your mouth is your example of kind and loving, you are truly a blind man.
You have never addressed my comments in the past regarding what God's word says about "judging not. Remember, Lucifer thought himself smarter than God. Howard, how about writing a nice comment about someone, anyone. How about mentioning what a nice job the new mayor is doing for Attleboro and the churches he works with. Or is that not possible bec ause he is, after all, gay!
An alphabetical directory of out-of-town and local visitors to the Guestbook follows the comments. Comments remain posted for at least a month and are printed periodically as Letters from Home on the Opinion pages of The Sun Chronicle. A note on style: Please do not send entries or names in all capital letters or in all lower-case letters. Howard, I too am certain that homosexual people "choose" to be this way. They "choose" to be persecuted, harassed and ridiculed at every turn.
They "choose" nicknames like "fag" and "dyke," Yup, I'm sure that at 7 years old on the playground they decide that life would be too easy as a straight person and all the crap that goes along with being gay would be so much more fun. We all know that there are gays in the military and if ya think otherwise you need to see a shrink. The sad irony of it is that they put their lives on the front line defending the very Constitution that gives them the right to be left alone to live their lives in peace no matter what their sexual orientation.
Now, can someone please tell me why, at a time when the most dangerous thing you can be is American, why are we giving our neighbors such a hard time for whom they choose to love? Can't we all just get along and quit dissing gay people. Have ya ever spoken to a homosexual? They care about the same things we do, they have the same hopes, dreams, fears and ambitions as us. If we, as Christians, represent Jesus Christ, we need to be more compassionate and a little less judgemental. Hmmmmmmm, if they execute gays in the Middle East, then Mr.
Watson had the right idea. Just kidding, folks, don't get in a tizzy. Owen, if you really believe that homosexuality is NOT a choice, then you are living a lie. I could name some reasons why some make that choice and it is NOT because they were born that way. No one is born that way. It comes from surroundings, such as dominant females mothers , etc. I know for a fact that the two gays in my family were not born "that way. Meanwhile, I pray every day that they see the light and come back to the right team.
I also know that the female gay in the family chose the choice because of a dumb-ass shrink who takes her money and tells you what you wish to hear, instead of finding out why she hates men when every man in her life has been a kind and loving example of what a human being should be. You liberal wonks who would have us believe that "if it feels good, do it" is the way to live will burn in your self-made hell one day.
You think damnation is a myth? You think going against God and normalcy is OK? Fine, keep it up. Your time will come. Owen, can you ever answer a question? All you do is come up with yet another stupid statement ,but you never answer a question. Once again, is there anything you don't think is just fine and dandy except an opposing view? As for that first guy who posted an entry aimed at my feelings, if I knew what the hell you were trying to say I would reply but I do not understand what you are saying. Howard, what you need to do is take your blinders off.
You do not speak your own thoughts but society's, so maybe you should go to a doctor and try to use your own thoughts instead of the ones you were taught. Everything you think and do you worry about what society might think. You are given one life to live on this earth, do you really want to waste it on society? Moran, spend five minutes researching the issue online and you will learn that Islam and the Middle East are not tolerant of homosexuality. You will also learn that the Taliban and others have executed homosexuals. And Rich, your comment that gays should see a "head doctor" is exactly the kind of thinking we have grown to expect from you.
If sexual orientation is a choice, as you say it is, do you recall choosing not to be gay? I just finished reading the article on the DAR house. I grew up at the other end of Elizabeth Street and well remember this house. In the picture, it looks like all the shrubs and grass are overgrown. Wouldn't it be nice if one of the local landscaping companies offered to keep the property neat and trim, gratis. This would be beneficial to the DAR and is tax deductible to the landscaper.
Can't wait to go home on June 4 for my vacation. Watson, what do you do for a living? I hope it has nothing to do with the public. With all that is going on in the world, I would think you would have more concerns about what is really affecting our lives. The saying among tribesmen is that "women are for babies and boys are for fun. The true message in Mr. Watson's entry is clear. He thinks being gay is wrong and having legal marriages between them is also wrong.
Sometimes you have to say things in ways that wake people up. That is what he did, I think. No one wants to send them anywhere. Instead of sending them to the Middle East, send them to a qualified head doctor to find out what makes them choose this life and cure them. By the way, Mr. Other than someone else having an opinion different than yours that is? Congratulations to the new Mrs. It must have been her boyish figure. Watson, you are wrong about "that kind of thing" being a way of life in the Middle East. The religious fundamentalists such as the Taliban share your attitude toward gays.
Nice company to be in. Watson, we should send everyone back to the place of their original ancestory. Which country would you then be shipped off to? And perhaps everyone of us who has sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God should be stoned. Do you have a preferred stone? Why can't we all just get along and let people live their own lives? My beliefs would never let me be gay, and my God would not let me be a condemner of those who are!
I guess He figured it was His job to decide whom should be condemned. So, I, until told by God to do otherwise, will love my neighbor as myself. And as an American will leave my neighbor to pursue his Constitutionally protected right to seek life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Now that we have gay marriage, we have got their names and addresses on record. Time to round them up and ship them to the Middle East where that kind of thing is a way of life … or to Michael Jackson's house, whichever.
Maryann, I also remember the Spidell's at the Moonbeam. I have their album, autographed by Jack Andrews! Luke visited my sister yesterday and played with her sons. They had a wonderful afternoon. Luke had a new Web site www. Thanks to all who are adding Luke to their prayers. My sister said he's a very cute, energetic and happy young man. Don't forget the yardsale May 15 at 68 Slater St. Thanks for all the prayers for Luke.
Maryann, I remember those bands! American Style was my cousin's band. Remember the battle of the bands? I had lots of fun with both of those bands. All the guys are doing well. I think the Spidells had a year contract at the Moonbeam. They were there every week for years. Recently my sister met a 5-year-old boy with cancer.
Actually one of her neighbors sent out flyers asking for a few donations to help Luke while he is having treatment for cancer here in Boston. There will be a fundraiser yard sale this saturday for Luke on Slater Street in Attleboro.
Neighbors are getting together and selling their items and the proceeds will be given to Luke and his family. Read about Luke in the link below. Please stop in on May 15, Saturday, and show your support for Luke and his family. He is in Boston from Philadelphia seeing specialists. He was unable to find room in the Ronald McDonald organization for housing in Boston while having treatment. His family has two other children and is having a tough time of things lately. My sister asked me to spread the info about Luke to some of my friends.
I felt some people on this site may be interested in helping this young man out. Please forward this link to friends. My memories of Russ Mulligan go way back to the late '40s. He was tough, rough and a true competitor. Rest in peace, Russ …. At 16 we used to go to the F. I and the Valley Cafe for beer and entertainment and the best french fries and vinegar around. For just pool and a brew or two, the Cercle Cafe was a good place to start. No one asked for I. We just passed the word on where to go with little trouble. All these places are out of business now or I would not name them.
But do they bring back memories …. Speaking of clubs and bands, The Lantern Lodge was the place to be during the late '60s, early '70s. Attleboro area is still slim pickin's for a night life. If you had transportation, Newport was fun too! There has been recent conversation in the Guestbook regarding Attleboro bands of the '60s. There is a terrific Web site at www. I have submitted information about my Attleboro band, The Velvet Dandelion, to this site.
If there are any other Attleboro band members reading this, and if you have information to submit to this Web site about your band, please do so! Great memories, and interesting "where are they now? You know what I don't understand, "Archie" as far as I'm concerned was a show that showed extremes of the right and left. Meathead was just as bad as Archie could be. I remember one episode where Meathead and Gloria were mugged.
They came home incensed over what happened. Meathead was yelling and screaming exactly like Archie had done many times about criminals and Meathead would stick up for the criminals with liberal rhetoric. The message of the show was, "Let a liberal be mugged and he becomes a conservative. I have chosen to respond to R. Quinn and John Owen via e-mail instead of driving all of you nuts with petty arguments. If you want to know my replies, e-mail me and I will gladly send them to you.
Do I know you? Your name sounds awfully familiar! I don't think Tim the Older ever knew about one sunny sunday the tavern got opened by his son with a few friends to "partake" privately. That would have been illegal back then. And also, what bands DID you play in? And Jarrod's Place is owned and operated by my little cousin Jarrod Ilkowitz, and I remember partying at a house this time with Pete from Capt.
He asked me for a cigarette and I playfully made him get down on his knees to beg for it - and he DID! Talk about aline of cops … A band from Revere came to play there once and their following came too. They all got real rowdy and drunk, throwing beers all around, messing with us Attleboro girls, and before you knew it, the cops were called. The APD ended up corralling all the Revere people in Kids's Town parking lot to separate them from us Attleboro people, making a line standing right down the length of the parking lot in the middle of Union Street.
A few of them got arrested but none of us , and we cheered them into the cruisers. I remember reading the Court Docket a few days later and seeing a list of names with addresses from Revere. What band did you play with back then? I knew most of the bands and would love to discuss them with you. As for Archie Bunker, do I really have to explain that all of his feelings are not my feelings? For God'S sake, he was fictional, for your entertainment. But if he were real, you could not deny his love for his America … Well, I won't deny Archie's "fictional love" for the "America": Sounds like I agree with Rich on this one.
Certainly none of us can deny Archie's was a "fictional love" for "America. Wow, reading about the old days in Attleboro brings back so many memories. Gilda, I too will miss Mrs. She was a wonderful woman who took the time to get to really know her customers and to remember them as well. She will surely be missed by many people throughtout the area.
My sympathy goes out to her husband. God has another angel looking down on all of us. Just did a partial read of the Guestbook entries, first chance I've had in a long time. Tim was a wonderful guy and good friend. His son, Tim Jr. We met at the Bruce Estrella Sr. To Ken Pelletier of Sugarland, Tx.: It was closed on bogus "fire code violations" although it had operated as the bowling alley many years with no similar problems.

The first two nights a Jimi Hendrix- type three-man band from Franklin played, with no incidents they had a great year-old drummer named Kenny Brown, who we recruited to join OUR band, which was slated to play on the fateful third night before they closed us down. We then played for the crowd at several outdoor locations, with the police rousting us each time, until the evening culminated in the now-legendary "March on the Police Station" by about a hundred teens simply seeking answers to the fire code questions from some, ANY, city official.
Of course, we were met by armed police and the fire department with fire hoses aimed at us. Unwilling to see people hurt or worse over the incident, we dispersed the crowd and told everybody to go their own ways. What can be said in retrospect other than, "Oh, well, it was the '60s" summer of '68, to be exact. Sad to hear my great aunt Bella Bettencourt passed away. She was my grandfather's sister. My prayers to my cousin Joe and his wonderful wife Hilda and their families.
My love and prayers to the many relatives I know I have on this family tree, but have never met. God's blessing to all! Now I am an empty barrel. I thought I was Archie Bunker. Plus I have been called a right-wing extremist and a lot of other things here in my addiction called "Guesttbook. Call me what you will. They say all you need to know you learn in kindergarten.

Because you are still too young to be in college being taught by mostly liberal "pinko commie profs. Gotta go fill my barrel, bye. I used to go to Arlene's any time I needed something special that I just couldn't find anywhere else. It is getting harder and harder to find those specialty shops. My heart goes out to Jan and her family. She will be missed. Rich Howard, you claim to have deep respect for our men in uniform but you choose to attack a man who served in a war zone and side with the chicken hawks like Bush and Cheney.
That's a term for people who are all for war as long as some one else does the fighting. Bush specifically requested not to go overseas and Cheney had five deferments. Cheney said he had "other priorities" at the time! The Special Forces soldier he pulled out of the Mekong River under a hail of bullets thinks he is a hero even if you have doubts.
As John Adams said, "Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts. For those who no longer live in this area and may be familiar with Janice Laurie, this is an excerpt from Wednesday's Sun Chronicle: She had an established business at that location for 38 years. I frequented her shop on occasion and found her and her mother who recently passed away to be courteous, friendly and pleasant to chat with.
Both Janice and her mother were outstanding people and an asset to the City of Attleboro. She will truly be missed. My condolences go out to her husband and family. She will truly be missed as no one can replace her expertise in her chosen profession. Note from the Lynxmaster: That sad event was reported on this Web site Wednesday, followed the next day by the funeral arrangements.
The complete story is on our digital edition for that day, which can be purchased from newsstand. Digital subscriptions are also available. I'm looking for anyone that may have any photos of the old "Bobby's" restaurant that was so popular with Attleboro youth in the '50s and '60s preferably exterior, but will settle for any. Please contact Tom McAvoy at or e-mail tmoosemc hotmail.
Sad to say, "pinko liberals" do exist, thus if I or anyone else uses the term, so what? As for Archie Bunker, do I really have to explain that all of his feelings are not my feelings. For God sake, he was fictional, for your entertainment. But if he were real, you could not deny his love for his America. Now we go too far the other way with political correctness and removal of God from everything public. What the hell does that get you? Lastly, if I re-read a book and found a chapter or two missing it would seem wrong.
I brought up the missing entries and the Lynxmaster explained the problem and restored them. Why does this rankle you? Why are you and some others hiding behind these stupid handles? If you want to talk the talk, then walk the walk. Like most of the people who post here, I am not as devoted to the Guestbook as Rich Howard is. I only respond from time to time, giving other people a chance to be heard. As long as we are sharing quotes, one from Ben Franklin comes to mind: Thanks, Christine, always learn something when I am wrong.
Now I know it was a quote by Roosevelt. Again let me repeat what I said in my first response to you: That dosen't mean you're forbidden from criticizing, just means with every freedom comes responsibility. Here are the two quotes we found. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.
The one you found: Maryann, Spit is right, it is not regional, it is everywhere. It is stupid, and parenting has lost something since our generation. I am so sorry to hear about your dad. It sounds like my dad, with my mom just passing away February, and now he has health problems including kidneys. I totally understand your situation. One of the hardest things is being so far away. That is why we moved our parents near one of us kids from Florida.
There's no family down there. It is a blessing to have him two doors down from me as he has had a terrible year this year! I will remember your father in my prayers and thoughts. Be strong and God bless! I checked out the Guestbook after work and had a good chuckle. The Guestbook has been accused of being Mr. Now I know it's true. He's counting missing entries!!! One of his missing letters used the phrase "pinko liberals. Back then Russia was making us feel unsafe. Now it's our own president. Thanks for the laughs. Good after a long night at work! Thank you for sharing that great quote with us, Christine.
I'm familiar with it, butGoogled it anyway and found that it can be found in over 55, Web sites. At thes March for Women's Lives in D. I would love to share some of the quotes about Bush that were worn on t-shirts and painted on signs, but they are too witty to be posted here. Please let me know if you'd like to see my pictures of the largest March in America's history.
John Owen is like the groundhog. Every once in awhile he pokes his head out and the rest of you get six more weeks of Howard and Glover. Anyway, let us not bash anyone. Let us critique both. Just check out Kerry's military-pertinent voting record. Methinks he still is turning his back on those in uniform.
With what he did after his "tour" in Nam and now with his anti-body armor votes, etc. Or does he just "bash" what Bush has done? Remember, he voted FOR this war before he voted against this war. All I know is, we are there and we must finish it. Thus we should come together and help find a way to do so through co-operation with the president, not by simply getting p—-d off at everything he does. Save your criticism for after it is over. You have fallen into the trap of the enemy.

Here is one for you. Being in the Tampa area and our hockey team playing in Montreal right now, I just read in our paper that the Canadian crowds boo the United States National Anthem before games. One "snowbird Canadian" was heard to say, "get that thing off my cart, I'm a Canadian. Maybe Robin Williams is right. Maybe we should just pull in our horns and let the rest of the world fend for itself.
That should be something to see. Have a good week all. Spit, I couldn't have said it better myself. The first thing I would do is reduce the TV's and computers in the house to one. The next thing I would do is shut off the TV and computer during meal time and everyone sits down together and has discussions! This worked in our house, ask any of my kids. It still works with the grandchildren when they visit. He always came in and bought all his cars from us. You lived on the corner of Oak Hill and Locust Streets, right? I'll pray for him. He always seemed like such a nice man.
No, parental irresponsibility is not a "regional" issue. I've dealt with it right here in New England. Rachel Love was at Estrella Kathy's Nails. Sydney Forstner is at Estrella Kathy's Nails.
