Pug was my idol from the day I met herI was 9. I wanted to dress like her, talk like her and look like her. I used to watch her getting ready to go somewhere, then go home and try to do the same things. Then just imagine...she married my uncle and became my aunt!!! Even though it didn't work out for them , she still remained friends with me. There will always be a soft spot in my heart for Pug. She's the end of an era that I loved being a part of. Deb and Sue, you can take some comfort in knowing she's in a better place. Love Kaye

Sue and Deb, Our heartfelt sympathy to you all in the loss of your mother. We hope it will help in some small way to know that our prayers and thoughts are with you in the difficult days ahead. Remember the way she laughed. Remember the times she cried. Remember the way she lived. Instead of the way she died. I talked to Pug a few times when I tried to reach you Sue, and you weren't home. I enjoyed our short visits, it brought back some good memories and fun times we had together many years ago. Please stay in touch. Love, Jean and Dick

Dear Susie, Debbie, Duane and Annie, I remember watching Pug getting ready to go out on a date and thinking she was the most beautiful woman in the world. I was 8 years younger and thought I would never grow up. I have many, many childhood memories of fun days with all the cousins running and playing together. I'll never forget when she worked in St. Paul and made that long drive home one Friday just to turn around and go right back up there to take my girlfriend and I shopping. She had a heart of gold. I also remember helping her out in the Cobban bar/restaurant and then going to the Silver Dollar and listening to her sing. Everyone was star struck when she sang. May you find peace knowing she was loved by so many. God bless you all.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

This is my Mom. I miss her so much already. She has gone to a better place now so I'm told by everyone and as soon as my mind takes over my breaking heart I will realize that. My cousin in Wisconsin said it's an end of an ERA and that's what it feels like. I love ya Mom. Sue
