A positive attitude is the key to longevity, there is positive in anything, even Obamacare, as itRead More allows folk to find a use for spending extra money that will help the less fortunate, whether they wanted the healthcare or not. The passengers on the 777 flight are probably safe and secure in Pakistan, held as long term hostages by nefarious folk. Obama will probably win the basketball March madness, since he deems that more important than world affairs, but that's ok, at least something is being accomplished. Keep that positve attitude.

Considering how long and well he lived, we would be wise to heed his advice! Also, the fact thatRead More his son said that he will "miss his companionship" would imply he was a genuine man. I hope my children will miss that about me one day.

This has absolutely nothing to do with politics. This has to do with a good man looking at lifeRead More from a positive view point. Maybe exercise, good food, and the ability to learn new things.

He had an amazing capacity for forgiveness. I love this quote: “As I walked out the doorRead More toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn't leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I'd still be in prison.”

Pat was a mayor of the people, she listened and understood what her constituents wanted from cityRead More government . Pat was fair minded and did not push her wants on her citizens. Fair play and the little guy were as respected as much as the big shooters . She worked for the people she represented and wanted to do much as she could make Rochester Hills their town.

He was a wonderful teacher and co-worker. My daughter who has learning disabilities had Steve. HeRead More sent me his power point presentations weekly, so I could work with her at home. He wanted her to achieve, and I know if he did it for my daughter, he did it for any student who needed support. The bottom line is, he wanted his students to be successful. I hope I can leave the same kind of legacy. He will be greatly missed.

Kristen, "secure the perimeter" was something Mr. Shatlz said at the begginning of eachRead More class. A student near the door would then shut and lock the door so that any students late to class would have to wait outside the classroom for a minute or 2 while he finished taking attendence. He always let the late students back in class but you didn't want to be late to Mr Shaltz class.

I have a couple fond memories of the legendary teacher/coach Shaltz. I actually never had him in theRead More classroom but was honored to be coached by him during 3 years on the wrestling team. Some of the classics were his "solid" sayings. One of his favorite words to say, especially when i came in not much overweight. Also during the past season, he would always let me weigh in first because I was cutting the most weight, which meant I could drink and eat first. However, my last memory that I will remember forever is when I asked him only a couple months prior to fill out a recommendation form for National Honor Society. He gave me a 500/10 on character. I will greatly miss Coach Shaltz. R.I.P

They're so loyal, and they don't talk... what's not to love about a dog? ;) Thanks, Ed.

We have seen 10 dogs slip from our lives-all beaten, battered, old or abandoned. All from sheltersRead More and each one that leaves feels like the first. We have three gracing our lives currently. Mickey, Cooper and Jack-all from shelters with calls from those caring people as we were "last ditch effort"-but they are getting old My heart goes out to you. You and your family did a beautiful thing. Life is short, but shorter for them and thank goodness, her last days were spent where she knew was wanted--so important for the last days to be spent where they are wanted and loved. You gave her that and comfort at the time of her loss as well.

I had the privilidge of knowing Marty for decades as we both practiced law in Macomb County. As manyRead More others have said he was caring and passionate as well as a very skillful attorney. He also was courageous and resilient. I just recently saw him in Oakland Circuit Court where he as always was advocating for his client undistracted by the medical burdens he was shouldering.I walked out of Court that day with a smile and even more respect.
