Past Comments

Cindy (Pankow) Schliewe

I remember staying with Marcie and her family one week while she painted portraits of me. She welcomed me so warmly into her family and was so patient with me while I struggled to sit still for what seemed like hours. At family reunions I can still hear her calling, “Paul. Paul. Paulie – it is time to go!” Her Paul, Paul Burmeister and I were all about the same age and Marcie taught me to treat “special people” with caring and love. My dad and mom enjoyed visiting relatives and I remember visits to Joel and Marie and Mary and Dick and their families. My dad’s (Sonny Pankow) and their generation including my Aunt Doris and Uncle Dick Burmeister taught me the real Pankow legacy – a deep love for my Savior, Jesus Christ. Their Christian examples of living their faith and depending on God no matter what crosses come our way – that has guided my earthly journey. I am forever grateful to our loving and merciful Father for placing me in this family. I look forward to heaven and enjoying many family reunions together – playing ball and seeing how many bottles of pop we can drink in a day.

Marcie succeeded to anchor a lot of joy within my heart. Known from my own experience how “disabled” individuals are often misunderstood and “mistreated”, with the support of my family I was able to influence her that Paul should be living with her at home with Christy and Tom. My husband derived great joy guiding Paul to learn how to swim. Marcie’s love and gratitude strengthened within me to continue to reach our to parents with a “disabled” child. As Albert Einstein says so beautifully: “Only a life lived for others is a life worth living.”

Marcie’s strong Lutheran Faith guided her in whatever she was doing. Our blind daughter Heidi deeply enjoyed singing hymns with her.

As a family, we have many fond memories of time spending together with Marcie; they will continue to linger for the rest of our life within us.

Mom painted this picture of her grandfather (not sure which one). It hangs in our home. She gave it to us since it reminded her of son Marcus (my husband).

I can’t forget. Our family also visited Peter and Elaine and their family. Still today their daughter, Barb, encourages and guides me in my Christian walk of faith.

I deeply enjoyed my wonderful long-lasting relationship with Marcie. It goes back more than 40 years. Marcie was always proud of my accomplishments as a blind individual. When we celebrated her last birthday, she surprised me with a very special gift: One of her own oil paintings portraying Helen Keller, which she painted for her son Paul in 1969. Everyone in our family treasures this painting in our living room. In the back of the portrait Marcie wrote in hand-printed letters: To Paul – my son. Lovingly, Mom
Marcie lit my inner candle whenever we were together; Her glow warmed me and many, many others. She will always remain in my heart for the rest of my life.

Always enjoyed visiting with Marcie – she painted our Cindy’s portraits one summer – Cindy stayed with her a whole week while she did this. I love them…Cindy has one and I have 4. Also she, Mark and Paul surprised us one summer day and spent it with us in Hudson. We were always so far away from the Pankow relatives and felt special when any of them stopped in. Christy reminded me today that she too had stopped in once here in Hudson. God Bless the Hagen Family……Bev Pankow Nuessmeier, Hudson
