    To the family of Debbie Blahnik,
    We will always remember the beautiful gift you gave all of us at Our Savior Lutheran with the wonderful direction and organization of “The Reenactment of Our Lord’s Supper.” It was truly a gift to the community as well. I always remember our great talks about our hopes, dreams and most of all….our faith.

    We will miss you, Deb.

    We at E and E Furniture will miss Debbie so much..

    I (Pam) enjoyed our long talks about life and about our family—-she was always so proud of her husband and children that just by talking about them with her I felt like I knew them…We were always happy to have her visit with us.

    Rest in peace Debbie—we will always remember you here at E and E

    I enjoyed our conversations while we waited, and waited, to play pipes this summer..especially in Gwinn.

    It is only right that you know that I am aware of the loss of your mom. It’s tough. Today, and the days that follow today, will be long and numbing and hard to accept. Then many days from now, I promise, the Sun will come up again,the days will hurt less, and the precious memories will survive.

    My sincere condolences to the Beeck and Blahnik families. I spent many an hour at Grandma’s Place on the Whitefish Hill in Rapid River in the early ’80s and remember Mrs. Blahnik as kind, joyous woman.
