Re: “Obituary: Matthew Henry Young, 1948-2017

Matt. you helped change my life when I first moved to Burlington Gave me hope gave me the tools to grow up and get out of my own way and be a productive member of society. you have done great work and have made such an enormous difference.. you will be cherished here forever and I hope there will be some one out there capable enough to carry on your legacy.. you are a one in a million

thoughts prayers and well wishes to the loved ones Matt has left behind as well as all of the people he has touched while doing his outreach work. Hope there will be someone there to comfort these people and help them through the loss of their mentor

Re: “Obituary: Earl Kenneth Bessette, 1924-2017

Earl was a great guy, and hard core goose hunter until the end. Decoying birds was the only way to hunt- pass shooting and sky busting for losers. we hunted every single day of the goose season up until this past September at 92 when he finally hung up his shotgun for good. We will miss you each goose season old friend. Jamey

Very disturbed and sad to note this in my Facebook Feed today. A creative spirit has left the world. So sorry, Barb and family.

Paulie Roots, great guy, always smiling, always had something going on. I saw his first band Primitive Tools live and some of his other bands at the Reggae Fest. My heart goes out to his family.

Rest in peace Mr. Paulie Roots - you taught me a lot about reggae music and kept a smile on your face through all that retail hubub at Pure Pop Records.

Paul was my science partner in junior high at Hardwood Union. He would do the science and I would write the lab reports. He introduced me DEVO, something I will never forget. Rest in peace, Paul.

Re: “Obituary: Paul LaBrusciano, 1966-2017

This breaks my heart. I remember Paul as the sweetest adorable little boy. Haven't seen him in at least 37 years, but he should have lived a lot longer, as he graced this earth with a rare, humble spirit and great kindness, as does his entire family.

Re: “Obituary: Dave “Big D” Fayette, 1945-2016

My sisters and I were raised at Marble Island by Dave, Fred, Karen and the Fayette clan, with a whole swim team of other kids. I cant express the sorrow in our hearts. Just about every day my father and Dave strategized their stock market positions betting who had the better ones. I remember his taped shoes and the clubs! I remember his smiling, intense and inspirational discussions that made you think and want to do better. He was a courageous man as well. I remember a story; one winter day he was skating around Marble Island. Moses (his rabbit loving dog) was running around the Island but got too close to the island where the ice was thin and Moses fell through. It was the backside of the island, out of site from the club. Moses panicked and was breaking the ice trying to climb out. Dave yelled at him to be still and the dog stopped. Dave laid on his stomach, crawled to edge, grabbed Moses by the collar and pulled. Moses was able to get his front paws up on the ice and with Daves help he climbed out. Lord knows what could have happened to Dave if he broke through as well. That was Dave The hooks, I could go on about those. Being a gullible teenager I was easy prey! From those years at Marble Island there are scores of families that owe Dave (and the Fayettes) for an immeasurable quality of life you couldnt find anywhere. Dave taught us how we should treat each other and all of us kids, then, adults now, took that with us. Truly a life well lived.

Re: “Cornelia Bastiana Rottler

Re: “Obituary: Melissa A. Verge, 1980-2017

Melissa, I was so lucky to have met you at the wedding this summer and to have been placed across from you. I could feel your loving heart the moment we met. I wish the circumstances were different and I could've known you more. You were a soldier that evening, going on the boat when you knew there was no turning back. I prayed so hard for you every single day. Now I will pray for your family and loved ones. Thank you so much for your humor, conversation, and kindness to someone you didn't know. I will always have that memory of you! I'm thankful you got the vacation u deeply wanted!!! Sending my condolences for this huge loss! One of a kind sweet soul... K.M
