    A lot has been written, not nearly enough. Dr. Zuelke was up late at the Jesuit Auction the night before my second son was born. He had convinced me to have a student nurse follow my pregnancy and delivery. I was 27, she was 21 and partying the night Jason Warden was born. They had to be awakened in order to be there for the delivery. Dr. Zuelke slept in the room next to me. I shall never forget his wonder and enthusiasm, much of which women today miss. Paul treated me like a daughter and I loved him; My name then was Warden; now Burgard. He delivered Christopher and Jason in 1972 and 1975 respecitively. I will forever remember his kindness and his reassuring voice and touch. He got as excited as I did when he first heard Chris's heartbeat. He as that kind of man. Thank you for letting me share. Marilyn Burgard.

    My mom used to work with Dr. Zulke, and he delivered both my sister and I over 20 years ago. She has always had such great and inspiring stories about him. I know he will be missed by many people, and his family is our prayers.

    Dear Inarose,
    We were so sorry to learn today of Ed's passing. We have such lovely memories of this wonderful man. One of our favorites was his TV interview on AM Northwest, at the time of his retirement. Lots of great times will be special to us. We send our love to you and to all your family.
    (We live in Phoenix now and I wasn't able to find your address at the Coast. But we're certainly thinking of all the Zuelke family.)
    Marge and Roger Yost

    As a registered pharmacist who managed the in-house pharmacy at Marylhurst for many years, I can speak to Dr. Zuelke's caring attentiveness to his patients' needs.
    When he and his wife volunteered to serve with the Holy Names sisters in Lesotho, Africa, I was mightily impressed by this form of offering service in their retirement years.
    During the 1970s, I also taught writing and literature at St. Mary's Academy, Portland, where a few feisty, bright and innovative Zuelke daughters enlivened my classes!

    One of my students told me Ed had delivered her 3 children, and that she
    just loved him. Inarose, you sure shared him with a lot of women!
    My daughter, Nancy, worked with him at St. V. and said that a lot of the
    newbie doctors could take a lesson from him - it was always a pleasure
    to be on his team.

    Jennie hosted a gathering at her home for all the grandkids that were in town on Saturday before the service. They used a flip chart to remember all the things that grandpa had taught them. This was to be used to help Jenn write her eulogy. When I got home yesterday...it was in my car so I thought you'd like to see what they wrote...

    Things we learned from Grandpa:
    Always love one another
    The best Shirley Temples are made with all grenadine and just a splash of 7-Up
    He could always relate no matter what we were talking about
    A good man will always bring you flowers
    He taught us how suck helium out of a balloon
    Always find the good in people
    Always awake and ready to get the day started
    He genuinely enjoyed people
    Don't mess with the morning paper
    The secret ingredient in the best pancakes is bacon grease
    Always stay up on current events
    Have opinions about everything but don't judge others
    Love each other no matter what
    Grown men can play with trains
    Pie is perfectly acceptable for breakfast...it is fruit after all
    He taught us how to make a strong drink
    Happy hour is 4:55
    Learn how to make initials in the pancakes
    Never forget loving each other
    Whoever doesn't cook gets to do the dishes
    Our grandfather delivered alot of babies... our friends, our neighbors, strangers we met on airplanes and even some of our boyfriends.
    Love each other no matter what
    Dropping his name would get you in to see a doctor sooner
    Always make people feel special
    There is a difference between a Mercury and a Mercedes
    Always have candy in the car
    It's ok to sneak children candy when the parents aren't looking
    The best S'more maker
    Be humble
    Teach by example...never by force or intimidation
    Wearing plaid to any occasion is always appropriate
    Always made you feel like you were his favorite
    Love everyone no matter what

    We are friends of Janet and Forest and have had some of the family stay with us at the Big Red Barn during your family reunion. Even though we met Ed and Inarose only once we feel that we know them and what they were about....LOVE. You see we have aValentine party every year and we have a tradition and that is to have Janet read a love letter that Ed wrote to Inarose a long time ago. We have been doing this for 4 or 5 years now and we all insist that Janet read the letter everytime and everytime our eyes water, lips tremble and we are reminded to live our lives with much, much love like Ed and Inarose. Thank you so much and here is a toast to you!
