Had a lot of laughs with Deb over the years while working for Council 31. You never had to wonder what she was thinking. She told very clearly. RIP my friend, you’ve earned it.

Michelle, River & Stu. Your family is in our prayers. We couldn’t believe the news. We got to know You as our neighbors. Adam was always kind, always said hello, smiling, fishing, & would help us with any project. He caught more fish in our cove than the professionals. He will always be thought of by us as an exceptional young man with a great family. We are so sorry for your loss.

To Michelle and all of Adam's family, we are so very sorry for your loss. Words can't express how saddened we are to hear of Adam's passing. We have so many great memories of Adam from high school and afterwards... Skateboarding, riding motorcycles, bonfires, and a lot of parties. Every memory we have we end up laughing hysterically... Adam making a grand entrance to a party: riding down a hill on his motorcycle and almost wiping out, listening to Adam and Matt play their guitars together, playing cards, singing songs, and most importantly, laughing until it hurt. Adam's smile and laugh will be missed and not forgotten.

It is with sincere sympathy that I shared this information with you. Trying to find the right words or thoughts to share with someone when they have lost a loved one to death can be very difficult. It is my hope that you will find comfort in the memories of your love one that will carry you through the years to come. I have found that the hope God gives in his Word the Bible to be a source of great comfort. In the Bible book of Acts 24:25 and John 5:28, 29 we have a sure promise that we can see our love ones again. Attached is a link to a little track that provides more information regarding that promise. Perhaps after everything has settled down you will find time to review that information along with your copy of your Bible. Again, I give my deepest sincere sympathy to you and your family. https://www.jw.org/finder?wtlocale=E&docid=1102013500&srcid=share

Roger: Maribel and I are very sorry to learn about the recent passing of Rose. She was a lovely person and a good friend to our family. especially our parents, Nell and Grant Mueller. Rose had a way of just lighting up a room when she was present. She was a wonderful person, always ready to lend a helping hand to those in need. We will truly miss her.

I met Adam when my son, Kenny Klemaier, started skateboarding and hanging out with the Trevi Garden kids. He became a great friend and went on a couple of trips with us, 6 Flags and river floating. He later helped remodel our bathroom. I never thought I would have to say goodbye to him in this way. My heart is sad but also happy I got to know Adam. Condolences.

My sweet Adam. I will so miss you. I enjoyed our goofing off and funny talks. I'm still just in disbelieve. My heart aches, but I know your in a better place and heaven needed another good angel.. oh and I'm sure a craftsman. You are the best I dont know what I'll do without you. Thank you for everything. Love and hugs Kim

Wade & Shannon Gadberry posted on 11/14/18

Adam-we still cannot believe the news. You were are neighbor and great friend for such a short time but long enough to hurt that you are not going to answer our calls or texts. You inspired Ethan to play his guitar and be a good kid. You helped us out with some windows in our home and we will forever have a part of you with us. Most importantly is how proud you were to become a daddy. You love that little girl so much. We will think of you everyday when we walk out our back door and see the place you used to call home and all the great memories we had as friends and neighbors. We will buy a case of RC Cola and drink it in memory of you Adam. You will be missed, until the day we meet again!!!

 

Stu Weyforth posted on 11/14/18

Adam: I remember so well the first time we met. I was with my daughter Michelle when you walked in. But you came to talk to me. Told me your life story, without me asking. I liked you immediately! You asked me if the girl sitting next to me was my daughter, what was her name, and could you talk to her... I didn’t know at that moment that you would someday marry Michelle and bring us the most beautiful precious little girl! Thank you! I love you Adam! I will always remember our time together with much joy! I will miss you! Stu

 

Marie Kessler posted on 11/13/18

Adam.. I didn't know much about you but you were my husbands cousin and such a great guy. The few things i did know though: you were a great friend, cousin, father, and construction worker. River was everything to you and always the light of your life. I cant speak for everyone else but i know that you loved your friends and family more than anything. My prayers are with your mom and dad and sweet River along with the rest of the family. Rest in Peace and we will miss the joyful smiles, the music you played, and the jokes you had.

Adam was such a talented carpenter and fun friend. He was so kind and always ready with a big hug and greeting! He loved to play guitar with Denny and go out on our boat. Once when I was training for a triathlon and swam far from the boat he bacame very concerned and made Denny move the boat closer! He was always ready to help and our beautiful front porch is a testament to his carpentry talent. We will be able to sit and think of him when we sit there RIP Adam you will be sadly missed

Adam: during highskool, you were a friendly peer. Just afterward, somewhere between 2004-2006, we had a couple of heart to hearts, probly at party, probly drunk...but it deepened my understanding of people's hearts. Each one of us has somethin real special and you certainly sparkled. Thank you for sharing yourself with people. Please stay in contact somehow, from wherever you are now. To Adam's fam: I don't know you. I tragically lost my older brother to a drug overdose when I was 18 & he was only 32. No matter the cause of Adam's departure, I understand that loss and I love you. I hope you can stick together and support eachother with kindness and compassion thru the grief that lasts indefinitely beyond the time of his services. Take care.

Dear Schwartz Family, we're sorry to hear of your loss. We were out of town and missed the beautiful celebration of a wonderful friend who shared family stories with us each time he was in. We may have lost the best friend, best dad, best husband ever, but God needed him for his new job in heaven. May we continue to celebrate the "Beaver" now and forever more. We miss him!

The first time I went to clean her home in Jacksonville and when I was finish cleaning she called me into the living room. I thought I had done something wrong. She told me to look across the room-I was trying to see what I had done wrong. She gave me a hug and said you have to stand back and appreciate all the hard work you had done. The work you do in life can leave such an impression on one's life. She always taught me to appreciate the work you do and most important your prayer life. She taught me many more lessons as we become best friends. The Lord knew I needed someone like her in my life. She will always be a part of me.

I first met Dorothy at the soccer fields when our sons were playing soccer and have been friends ever since. During that years we have done any fun things together. From driving to Florida to spend time with soccer world friends, 2 going to align I basketball games, cardinal baseball games, the state fair, downtown Springfield festivals, and the APL fundraisers. We would go out to dinner on Sunday nights, and she never seemed to let her cancer get her down...she was a brave woman. I will miss you dear friend.

 

Edward Heflin posted on 10/25/18

I knew Dorothy at Humana/Doctors Hospital. She was a kind, compassionate, and thoughtful person. It would be hard to find someone as nice as Dorothy. Warmest condolences to her family.

 

Thomas Smith posted on 10/25/18

Dorothy was one of the first people I met when I was hired at Bunn in 2003. Over the years of working together we shared our stories of cycling and whenever I would ride with a group I would encounter someone that knew Dorothy. Everyone she came in contact with had great things to say about her. She was warm, friendly and helpful inside and outside of work. She will be missed by me and many of her Bunn friends. My sincerest condolences to your family during this time.

It is with sincere sympathy that I shared this information with you. Trying to find the right words or thoughts to share with someone when they have lost a loved one to death can be very difficult. It is my hope that you will find comfort in the memories of your love one that will carry you through the years to come.

In the Bible book of Acts 24:25 and John 5:28, 29 we have a sure promise that we can see our love ones again.

Mrs. Monroe is a great loss. She had a such a wonderful laugh that was contagious! Yes she did know her stuff at Southeast. So many students looked to her for direction on so many levels. She was a mother to so many. Her confidence made you feel secure, in a not so positive atmosphere at Southeast High. She was just truly a good person, who will be missed by so many, may she rest in peace, and fly high with the Angels. Such a great loss. Love and miss you Mrs. Monroe! R.I.P. Gone but never forgotten! Love Sandy Best

I'm so sorry for your loss. The pain of losing a loved one isnt easy to go through for anyone. I wanted to share something with you that has encouraged my family and I through loss. Revelation 21:3, 4 talk of a wonderful promise for the future: a time of peace and health, when no one will die, be sick, or cry out in pain anymore. Don't we all look forward to this time. I hope you can find some comfort through this trying time.

I’m so sorry for your loss. My family and I can understand the pain you’re in, my brother passed when he was exactly Jacob’s age. The pain is still there but what helped my family and I cope is a beautiful promise found in God’s word. In Revelation 21:4 God says that he will wipe out the tears from our eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. Imagine seeing Jacob again healthy and happy and running and jumping, and you’ll never have to worry about being apart again. May this hope soothe your hearts until then. -jw.org

I have such fond memories of Mrs. Courtwright, and I'm so very sad to hear the news of her passing. She was one of my favorite teachers of all time and I learned so much from her. While in high school, I was selected to represent Southeast at a secretarial seminar and Mrs. Courtwright was my chaperone. We had such a great time together that day...what a GREAT memory. My thoughts and condolences are with her family....I know she will be missed greatly.

We’re traveling by train and, from the windows, we drink in the passing scenes of cars on nearby highways, of children waving at crossings, of cattle grazing in distant pastures, of smoke pouring from power plants, of row upon row upon row of cotton and corn and wheat, of flatlands and valleys, of city skylines and village halls. But uppermost in our conscious minds is our final destination–for at a certain hour and on a given day, our train will finally pull into the Station with bells ringing, flags waving, and bands playing. And once that day comes, so many wonderful dreams will come true. So restlessly, we pace the aisles and count the miles, peering ahead, waiting, waiting, waiting for the Station. “Yes, when we reach the Station, that will be it!” we promise ourselves. “When we’re eighteen. . . win that promotion. . . put the last kid through college. . . buy that 450SL Mercedes-Benz. . . have a nest egg for retirement!” From that day on we will all live happily ever after. Sooner or later, however, we must realize there is no Station in this life, no one earthly place to arrive at once and for all. The journey is the joy. The Station is an illusion–it constantly outdistances us. Yesterday’s a memory, tomorrow’s a dream. Yesterday belongs to a history, tomorrow belongs to God. Yesterday’s a fading sunset, tomorrow’s a faint sunrise. Only today is there light enough to love and live. So, gently close the door on yesterday and throw the key away. It isn’t the burdens of today that drive men mad, but rather the regret over yesterday and the fear of tomorrow. Regret and fear are twin thieves who would rob us of today. “Relish the moment” is a good motto, especially when coupled with Psalm 118:24, “This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” So stop pacing the aisles and counting the miles. Instead, swim more rivers, climb more mountains, kiss more babies, count more stars. Laugh more and cry less. Go barefoot oftener. Eat more ice cream. Ride more merry-go-rounds. Watch more sunsets. Life must be lived as we go along. The Station will come soon enough.

I am very sorry to read of the loss of, Mr. Huffman. With his accomplishments and dedications both, in his professional life and personal one, he was an amazing man! I won't pretend to know what you're going through, but what has helped me deal with the loss of those I love, is turning to the Scriptures, something that has been a real source of comfort. One Scripture that gives me hope is John 6:40, which says: "For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day.” I hope that this verse will also comfort you and, I hope you and your family can get through this difficult time. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your beloved husband, father, grandpa and friend. Sincerely, Meryl, jw.org - [email protected]

I know how hard it is to lose a parent to Alzheimer’s, To watch someone so bright and alive slowly disappear from your life is almost unbearable. Just know that with your love for each other and family and friends, your good memories you have will soon overshadow those from the end of her life. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Joey, so sorry for the lost of your father, I worked with Dan and your uncles and aunts in the mid 70's as bus boy, dish washer at your Grandpa place of business, I remember it being over 100 degrees in the kitchen and I would go up to get a coke, he would spike from time to time with Tabasco sauce, he always had a good since of humor, no doubt he will be missed.

My deepest Condolences to you JAN.and family. After losing daddy back in 1998, I know the hole it will leave, tho many joys and memories to take with you. She looked like my dad, and seemed a bit like too, I have only a few memories of rising her in Springfield when we would come up to visit , that was when your Mom and Dad were still together. I remember your Dad being so polite and kind and your mom a bit feisty, but I was very young. I also remember having a childhood crush on Phillip(haha) and ended up marrying a man that looked a bit like him. Time seems to be like a shadow though the memories get further away sometimes they stay so close . I know you will cherish her legacy

My dear, sweet Uncle Frank, was really my big brother. There was only 3 years between us. He was like any big brother, he could be annoyed because I wanted to always tag along with him. He acted annoyed on the outside, but he always took me everywhere with him that I wanted to go. He tolerated my crushes on some of his high school buddies. He was loving and kind and ALWAYS there for me. I really can’t imagine a world without him in it. However, I rejoice in knowing he is in Heaven reunited with my dad and my uncles and my Grandma and Grandpa. Their is a joyous celebration happening. I love you so, Frank and I thank you for being my confidant, friend and the best uncle and big “brother” ever. I will see you again someday in Heaven.

 

Renee DeLong posted on 9/11/18

Frank was a very dear friend of mine at Southeast High School. Although I moved to LA decades ago, I'm so glad we stayed friends on Facebook for many years and I was able to see him at our last high school reunion. Frank will be missed but his friendship and kindness will always be with me.

Frank was a huge influence on my life as one of my key mentors growing up. The only exception was his taste in sports teams. Lol. We had many deep discussions/conflicts over our baseball teams. I will never forget his competitive spirit and the many contested basketball and ping pongs games we had. EPIC and too many details to cover in this forum, just imagine. Thanks Frank for help making me the man I am today. I especially appreciate the tip on going to Iowa for a wife. GREAT advice. Hope to see you again in heaven, just not too soon. Love that man.

Our sympathy to the Kelley family. Danny said he marched right next to Tom at the beginning of the Veterans Day Parade at the State Fair. Then both of us stood with Tom and visited with him at the airport as ITAM welcomed back the veterans who were on the Honor Flight. Danny introduced us, and we had such a nice visit. Until I read his obituary did I realize the he was Gena's son. My stepdad was John Turley, and my stepsister is Jeanette Turley. My mom was Pauline Turley. Such a wonderful family! May happy memories give you comfort. Tom was a good guy in so many ways. Danny was honored to be on the Honor Guard at the funeral home and on the Sangamon County Burial Detail to give Tom an honored sendoff. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

I’m glad we got to play Words With Friends this past year. He was unbeatable. Our condolences to Joe and Jodelle, Mike and Pat Tavine, and family.

Barbara, I worked closely with Don for many years at the Air Guard. I know he was a dedicated professional and devoted to his family. I'm sure "the angels came to greet him and led him to paradise". My sincere sympathy.

My Godfather, “Uncle Dan”, had such a kind and gentle soul. He always made our family laugh so hard we cried every time we got together. He cared so much for others and would do anything he could for you. Joe, I am going to miss your dad so much and cherish all of the fun times we had together. Rest In Peace, Uncle Dan. Love, Matt Bretz

Barb, I was very sad to hear of Donald’s passing. Every conversation I had with him was always filled with great insight. I don’t think Donald really knew the extent he cheered up my dad in his later years. When Donald was coming to visit, it was all he could talk about. Debbie and my thoughts and prayers are with you and the kids and everyone that is suffering Donald’s passing.

But now he is in God's Hands and with his love of his life, Eva. When we held our neighborhood block parties, Frank would always lead off the parade carrying the flag with great pride.

Deeply saddened to learn of Liz's passing. I received two LIHTC certifications as well as taken many of her online webinars. She was my go-to for compliance answers. She will be sorely missed as she had made her mark in the affordable housing industry. Her name is synonymous with LIHTC. My deepest condolences to Liz's family.

RIP, Petey! You lived a long and loving life! You made a legacy out of yourself. I’m so thankful I had the chance to meet you and know you! I know you’re up in Heaven, with Jug (my Papa) and you’re laughing like crazy and catching up with each other. You’ll be missed, more than you’ll ever know. Rest In Paradise!

Dorothy and Charles are in our thoughts today. I worked with Dorothy in 1960-61 at Horace Mann. I was a young 20 year old that needed someone to give me good advice. Dorothy accepted the challenge and we became good friends. She and I discussed our families and especially Bill and Jim. I remember she and Mabel Myers were close friends and they and husbands enjoyed life in those days. As I moved on in my career paths at Horace Mann, I lost contact with both, but still have fond memories of Dorothy. She always enjoyed our visit to the Walnut residence where she shared iris bulbs with Jessie and enjoyed those two good-looking kids of ours. She was good woman. God bless. Fred and Jessie

When I married Dorothy's son, I asked her how she would like me to call her.....she said, "Mom" was fine and to this day she has been "Mom" to me. Shortly after our marriage my mother became an invalid unable to give me motherly advice as a young wife. Dorothy filled in teaching me cooking, sewing, gardening and providing me with whatever I came to her for. Even after I was no longer her "actual daughter-in-law" Mom and I remained close. So, Mom, thank you for all the advice, love and kindness you showed me. Put on your dancing shoes, I'm sure Dad is waiting to take you dancing once again.

German Arbelaez answered my call for film crew on what would be my first 16 mm film production. The "shoot" was scheduled to be filmed at Abraham Lincoln's historic New Salem village two miles outside of Petersburg, Illinois. German had no experience in film production. But, with a keen interest in television & radio promotions, he signed on as the public relations contact for my script, THE PREMONITION. This guy turned out to be the real deal. German was a natural communicator. Enthusiastic as "all get out," he became not only the public relations contact for the film, but production manager as well. He helped me find film crew in the community and facilitated many other producing aspects for the project, such as casting & driving exposed film up to Chicago for processing. First thing German did was set up a 30-minute television talk show interview for me at WICS, Channel 20 in Springfield, Illinois. That really spread the word among young people in town that they had a real opportunity to get involved in film making right in their backyard. We soon had many working on the project. Never idle, German started drawing promotion logos and we hadn't even shot a foot of film yet! Yet, that's the kind of enthusiasm it takes to get a film "off the ground." During the actual filming of THE PREMONITION, German was willing to wear many hats and do any job, no matter how hard or difficult. What a time we had shooting during that lovely October autumn in central Illinois. THE PREMONITION, set in the 1860's, tells of a 10 year old boy who loves guns, but kills his beloved grandfather by mistake in a fearful moment during the Civil War. The 17-minute film helped me get into the UCLA Motion Picture Department in Los Angeles and gave German a solid foundation doing artwork for record albums and rock stars in Hollywood. So talented, German Arbelaez really was "one of a kind" and is missed by those who experienced his joy of rock & roll music.

As a very little kid I remember these dinners at the Walnut Street house and the table being so full - of foods I didn't "like." Those foods were from Dorthy's garden - and all foods I really enjoy today. I also remember these shelves of canned food, and days where my mom and Dorthy canned grape jelly (I didn't know what store bought jelly was for a loong time). When I had my first house in New Mexico, I planted this very large garden with so many vegetables. And I remember the first head of broccoli I harvested - I took a picture holding it and sent it to Dorthy because I was so excited to put into use all these things she had shared with me. Tips and tricks for pest control and making pants produce better, etc. And then later I would call her over the years and ask about canning - pickles, peaches, tomatoes - and she would be so tickled that I was doing something for fun that she had done for so long out of necessity or as a way of life. Thanks Grandma for showing me how to take it back to basics and enjoy the fruits of my labors.

So sorry to hear of Mick's passing. Her and I were classmates. I can still see her sitting across the table from me in kindergarten. We were learning how to tie our shoes and I just wasn't getting it. Mick stared at me and went through the motions with her hands and gave me a look as if to say 'come on, it's easy!'. Every once in a while I still think of her when I tie my shoes. May God hold all of you in His loving arms and give you comfort, strength, peace, and loving memories.

My parents were big Notre Dame fans. They always wanted to see Notre Dame play football but tickets back in the 70’s were difficult to get. In 1975 I started a new job with the state. I was introduced to the accountant I would be assisting. His name was Marty Kuharich. Need I say more. My parents got to see Notre Dame play Michigan that fall. Little did I know that I would be working for the greatest Notre Dame fan on the planet. He was a great co-worker and friend. I have an aunt who loved Notre Dame so much her license plates are NDU57. She died on Saturday and will be laid to rest in Calvary Cemetary just shortly after Marty on Thursday. I will think of Marty when they play Notre Dame Our Mother and the Notre Dame fight song at her funeral as they are laying him to rest. My sincere condolences to Joyce, Tony and Michael. I’m sure my aunt and my mom will serenade him with the Fight Song when they meet at the Golden Dome in heaven. Rest In Peace Dear Friend.

Marty was my lifelong friend, Notre Dame college roommate and fellow sports freak! We went though a lot together, and I don't think I could have graduated from ND without him. Got to know the Niebrugge family too. Remember Mary Jane, Kate and Pete. Marty and I were in each other's wedding parties, in IL and NJ. Marty, Joyce and I, sometimes with Tony and Michael, met at many ND games over the years, including Sugar Bowl in New Orleans in 1981 and Giants Stadium in New Jersey around 2002. Annual Christmas cards helped us swap the latest sports news. Marty was unique, and fellow students would rib him about his height, flabby belly and the Chicago White Sox, but he never took offense. He was always ready to drive to any away football and basketball game, piling too many students into his Mustang, or to a feast at McDonald's. Marty loved the movies too, and we sat through a few of those together. Plus, he had a nice jump shot and could beat anybody in a game of HORSE. I remember him telling me in 1970 that he'd met the perfect girl in Springfield, and he was so smitten. Joyce could actually tolerate his quirks -- he'd often ramble on and on, in disjointed sentences -- so I think God had chosen them to be a pair. Then He blessed them with two terrific kids. Marty was extremely proud of Tony and Michael, not just because they graduated from ND, but also because they had worked hard and followed their dreams. Marty could be a spoiled brat at times, always wanting to be the guy in charge, yet he cared so deeply about those around him -- just not in an emotional, teary, sentimental way. Maybe because he had been an only child, but he was always connecting with people he didn't know or hardly knew, and they soon became his friends. That's how you become president of your senior class in high school! I was more reserved, so by hanging out with Marty it really expanded my circle of associates, and so I remember some great times with the young men at ND. I regret that I cannot attend the funeral, having other commitments here in FL, but one day I hope to pay my respects in Springfield in person. PS: Love to all the Kuharichs and Niebrugges; I'm doing well and remember you fondly.

Mr. Brady, as my son Brad always referred to his first baseball coach on the Green Turtles. At Brad's wedding rehearsal dinner I referred to Tom as Brad's first mentor. Tom was a gentleman in all respects who displayed a true love of baseball and the White Sox. He was a wonderful husband and father as evidenced by Bob, Colleen and Jim. He may have been an even better grandfather who, unfortunately, will not get to see the successes of his grandchildren. I could go on but I know Jim and Maureen will remember more touching moments between the Svoboda's and the Brady's. God Bless Tom.

I loved your dad and in most recent times, even through his failing health, I continued to look forward to his Sunday morning hug, smile, and reminder of how special we all were to him. He was my pastor and spiritual leader, the father of one of my best friends, he married Doug and I and baptized our first child, our son, Kyle. He was a friend and fellow parishioner at Chatham Presbyterian Church and will live on in our hearts and memories and many loving reminders of him throughout Third Presbyterian Church. One of my most favorite memories is of the Hendricks Family’s “jam sessions” in your garage converted to a family room! Those were amazing days.

We enjoyed going out to eat with Jim and ChiuLan over the years and they would always ask us to come visit them in Vegas, but I told him my husband Ray doesn't travel. They told me to bring my sister (whom they did not know) and I did! We had a great time, which I will always remember. They were so gracious . He was just a great guy and the loss of Jim will leave a hole in the hearts of his family and all who knew him. .

Shane you will always be a part of our lives and hearts. You touched so many with just your smile and never realized it because that’s just who you are. I see you everyday when I look at precious Baelynns face. Our hearts are breaking because of the emptiness we feel at the loss of such an amazing father, son, and friend. I will always remember being in the delivery room when Bae was born and the look on your face as you held your daughter. I wish for one more day one more hour just 5 more minutes to talk to you and let you know how much you mean to this family how much you are loved by everyone. You had big dreams and you worked hard to fulfill them. You inspired so many people that is who you are. Tell my dad I said hi and I will always tell Baelynn that you are with her watching and guiding her, to dream big and work hard and she can accomplish anything. RIP Shane with all my love

We didn't know Shane, only Della, and we knew long ago of her profound love for her "baby boy". We are heartbroken for the entire family. Looking at Shane's picture, I can see so much of Della in him. That means, like his mother, he was part angel in life and now has been granted his full wings. My sisters and I send our love even though we cannot be there. God bless the entire family. You are in our hearts and prayers.

I have so many fond memories of spending time at both of our houses in Glen Aire growing up, Christmastime, back yard parties, and spending time in the real estate offices over the years. I was also lucky enough to spend time with her in Florida where she spent her winters. We had some fun moments at the casino and she introduced me to dog racing while there! I always felt a special closeness to JoAnne and will miss her so much. Know that you are in my prayers. Love and a big hug from Iowa. Karen

Allie Carnes (Fredericksburg, VA) posted on 4/8/18

I was raised by a village and Mary was very much a part of that village. She looked after me when I had to stay home from school with the chicken pox and gave me my first summer job tending to her gardens. She made every 4th of July and Christmas extra special. When she knew I was home alone and a storm was coming she called to make sure I was okay or see if I needed somewhere to go. She taught me to play piano and showed me the ways of Benny Goodman. At her own peril, she taught me how to use a sewing machine. With her, no craft project was impossible. I am lucky to have been included in her family and so very grateful for her kindness and generosity. I will miss her. JD and Janell, know I am sending love and prayers your way.

To Alissa's family, I am so sorry for your loss. I graded the Bar Exam with Alissa for 8ish years. I heard about Sorry I accidentally sent. I just heard about her death in the paper. She was a smart, beautiful young lady. Much too young to pass away. I grieve for your loss and the wonderful things she could have achieved in her lifetime. If its any indication, the truckloads of animal food and bedding, etc was just a glimpse of what she could achieve and organize for areas in need. I pray for all of you and your tremendous loss.

I moved to Hudson around 1970 and started sixth grade at a new school. I had Mr. Woods for a teacher and coach, the first male teacher I ever had. I now know he was only in his mid twenties, but seemed so much older, in a good way. I can't say how important that was for me as my Dad worked out of town quite often. I can still remember to this day one of his favorite words, probably from a Geography lesson, that word was, fjord. He just liked the way it sounded. Mr. Woods also helped me as a coach, primarily in basketball, as I had never played it organizationally. I can also still remember he and his friends coming back to the grade school on Friday or Saturday nights to play basketball. A few of his students would hang around and get to shoot baskets when they took a break. And if we were lucky and they needed extra players, get to play with them. Thank you Mr. Woods for helping me become a better person. My heart goes out to the Woods family, may peace be with you all.

Judy truly lived her life in the service of others. She volunteered hundreds upon hundreds of hours over many years to support working families, and she kept right on serving until she was no longer able. Judy was inspiring, dedicated and she touched countless lives with her selflessness and kindness. I offer my deepest condolences to her family. In this difficult time, may you be wrapped in the warmth of the memories you shared with her and take solace in knowing how much good she brought into the world every day.

I felt part of the Woods family for much of my youth, living for a time directly across the street on Dale. A bunch of us would congregate in the Woods' backyard for various sports, especially basketball where a hoop was attached to a tree. It seemed we could all dunk because the hoop was pretty low. And we became the first class to graduate from Oakdale Elementary. A group that continued as friends forever, it seemed, through NCHS and then off to various colleges. Even then, the Woods residence, which Larry shared with Reid Stein, was a gathering spot. Every single high school reunion and mini-reunion, whether some of us were there or not, Larry was there. He was the one who knew everything about our class. He never seemed to forget anything. The class has lost a lot of history that can never be recovered. And we've lost a piece of ourselves.

Again, our deepest sympathies to Uncle Pete and family since we were able to say goodbye at the funeral. She was always the greatest cook, but my furthest memory was always New Years Eve, when Pete and Mary would go over to my parents house(George and Jean) and play canasta card game until midnight. They would write down whose turn it was after the break because one year, there was a "dispute". The ladies prevailed, but we know how made comments for several years thereafter. At midnight, Dad and Pete would load up there guns and fire them off. Without lead I hope. This occurred for over 25 years. Family and friends good memories Aunt Mary

I am so sorry to hear of my friend and fellow track coach. My prayers are with your family friends, former students and athletes. I first met Don when he hosted the Fr-So Track Girls Invitational at Riverton. As a young girls track coach at Argenta-Oreana, I learned so much from him through the years but non more than his love for the sport and the triple jump. He was one of the first to ever have the TJ in meets and helped ramrod the event into the IHSA State Meet. He was the reason that I fell in love with the TJ and he taught me more than he will ever know. I will forever be thankful. Rest in Peace my friend- a race well run!

You learn much about a golf cart partner while sharing the many joys and disappointments of the game. Looking for each other's lost golf ball was common, but Don's were usually the most challenging to find after a seldom, slicing, off-target drive at Red Tail Run. A good sport, competitive, encouraging, respectful, and always a gentleman..... that was Don Hartlaub.

I remember going to a UU service being given by Rev. Moore back in the late 1970's. This is when the church had their building on North Walnut Street.I remember the service incorporated classical music being played on a phonograph. The sermon was delivered in a non-dogmatic way (the sermon discussed science and religion and was not focused on the music), which I found to be very refreshing from what I had been accustomed to religiously. I am sure Rev. Moore inspired and influenced many, many people in his career.

Very sorry to read this this morning...I had the greatest respect for Jim and Jack. I go back to 1961 Thru 1963 when both would be on college break and would come back to Feitshans High school to work with us on moves. During our adult years I stayed in contact with both, namely Jack at Southeast. My Prayers are with the family.

Jim's legacy continues through his family, wrestlers, and many officials that have worked with him throughout the years. He had a heart for the sport and always was willing to promote the sport. He will always be with us!

My memories of Coach Gardner go back to my High School days when my father had told me about his successful background as a High School and Collegiate wrestler. He coached with fierce intensity and showed such great passion towards ALL of his student athletes. This man lead by example. I remember when I had just taken over the Cahokia wrestling program and right before our dual took place, I was complaining to him about how difficult of a time I was having with keeping kids out and how some of my veterans were not attending practice on a regular basis....and I will never forget his reply to me as I was feeling sorry for myself complaining....He said "Khris, nobody is putting a gun to your head to do this... If you don't like it, change the atmosphere, or quit!" That statement hit me like a ton of bricks and every time we would run into each other at a tournament, we would just look at each other... smile and laugh, as I would always shake his hand and thank him for being the "TRUE COACH" that he was! He was a GREAT MAN AND has made such a huge impact on so many peoples lives....mine included. He will be sorely missed. My prayers go out to the whole Gardner family and relatives. He was one of a kind!

To the Gardner family, I am so sorry for the passing of Mr. Gardner. I knew Mr. Gardner and his brother while wrestling in the late 70’s at Pleasant Plains. I had the upmost respect, and admiration for both Jim at Lanphier, and Jack at Southeast, and you could see the quality of both through how much they cared for their wrestlers, and obviously their families. My sincerest condolences to the entire Gardner family.

When my mom moved to SSL, Freda took her under her wing, making sure she ate with her at meals, knew about activities and would push her to attend with her. Mom always remembered how Freda ordered pizza one evening and the two shared dinner in Freda's room. I will never forget her kindness and how blessed I am to have known her for all the years I have been at SSL!! I pray her and Mom are meeting in Heaven and enjoying each other again with our Lord and Savior, Jesus. We miss you, Freda!

When I started at Midland National Life in 1993, Jack made it a habit to know your name and said he'd give you a dollar if he didn't know your name at the Holiday Party, such a personality! I always appreciated that he gave you a hand written note on your birthday or work anniversary, he usually put "your future's so bright, you've got to wear shades"! Great man, Rest In Peace Jack.

We still laugh about that! Only Ralph! He was a wonderful man and we will miss him! Prayers and hugs! Julie and Mario

I will never forget when our cat passed I called Ron to ask him for a letter of permission to adopt a pet at APL. Ron asked if he could just come over as he was on his way to pick up his pet at the groomer. Ron and I talked for over a hour, what a nice visit. Ron then started to write a letter for me to adopt a cat , he looked at me and said are you sure you don't want to get 2 cat's. I laughed and said no one for now. I will miss seeing him driving around the park. My thoughts and prayers are with the Coleman family

Ron was the first that I remember who rode a motor bike, the wizzer in 1948 and can remember he parked it on the south side of school. Guys were gathered around him and the bike, looking it over. It was an attraction because that bike was the first one that I can remember. Condolences to the family. I am sure he will be missed.

To The Family and Friends of Ron Coleman: I am so very sorry for the loss of this Wonderful Man! In many ways I am filled with such Thanks To God that Ron is now at peace and with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and right there beside his best friend and wife, Barb in Heaven! It does not surprise me that only eight weeks later Ron is called home! Both Ron and Barb were a team and now they are together in Heaven watching over their family and friends! May God Surround each of you with His Holy Angels to help comfort and guide you during this difficult time. If you really knew Ron Coleman, you knew that he was "A Gentle Man" and "A Man of Patience and Grace!" I know one particular time we had a very unsavory situation here in the park with a tenant. It seemed to affect everyone and one day I saw Ron driving around in the park, as he always did, and stopped and talked with him one day about this situation! I learned so much in that conversation! I said, "Ron, how in the world do you stand for all this going on?" He said, "You get real good turning the other cheek, but I'm also giving them enough rope to hang themselves!" And eventually . . . just as Ron stated . . . The Rope became tight and they did hang themselves and it was taken care of . . . PERFECTLY BY GOD! I learned so much from him in our short visits throughout the years! He helped me greatly with his wisdom and allowed me to see things in a different way! I will miss that "Old Man River" driving around this beautiful Woodland Acre! O' man river, Dat ol' man river, He mus'know sumpin' But don't say nuthin' He jes' keeps rollin' He keeps on rollin' along. Rest in Peace Ron. You have earned your Heavenly Reward and I Thank God For the Man You Were and The Life He Gave You and Barb! Each year when I sent my Christmas Card to Ron and Barb I always ended with this phrase: "Thanks So Much For Such A Beautiful and Safe Place to Live!" 20+ Year Resident of Wood Land Acres Rusty Isaiah Downs Lot #68

The comfort of a loss is knowing two people who loved and worked together are together again.

We are fortunate to have had our parents as long as we have. Everyone loved Barb. How could you not. She was cheerful, optimistic and always enthusiastic about whatever her current book, her CD of new music or her artistic pursuits of which she excelled and frequently taught others. When we think back to all of this we wonder how she found the time because she was not only a devoted mother, and Ron’s wife, but was a true partner in his pursuits. Meeting when they were just kids of 15 and 16, they were always a team. She worked beside him in all of his ventures from packing up and moving to California in a pickup truck with two kids under 4, to starting the Travel Lunch business, and finally to the creation of Woodland Acres. At a tiny 5ft she even physically worked right alongside. As children, we saw her example and did not want to disappoint. Our mother’s life was full of challenges, but she was the family backbone, the glue. Always a cheerful “Oh, hi honey” when we called or stopped by, you felt you had just made her day. She was generous with her “I love yous” and she gave the absolute best hugs. She will be missed every day. Daughter #1, Vicki

You are all in our thoughts and hearts. I thought you might like this as I know it's how she feels. A Mother’s Message From Heaven I see you my darlings, all the time, I know everything you do. Would you believe, my dearest children I’m even closer now to you! I can see inside your minds, Indeed, inside your hearts, I even know you better now, Than I did before, sweethearts. I’ve always loved you – you know that, But maybe now I love you more, I love the adults that you’ve become, Just as I loved the child before. I know how much you miss me, Well, I surely miss you, too. I miss our talking and our laughing, And all we used to do. Whether you are six or sixty, You’ll always be my precious child. You’re the babies that I carried And the adults that helped me smile. What you need to understand, Though death has taken me away, Is that I’ve not left you, my darlings. I am still with you today. My family, I could never leave you; God, of course, would not want that. Physically, we are apart, But our hearts are still attached. I love you all the time, You cannot get away from me. That’s the way a Mother is Right until eternity. Every day I’m with you I see you from above, And I want for you to know How very much you’re dearly loved.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Peggy will always be in my mind the friendly, pretty next door neighbor on North 22nd Street. When our dad, Joe Seiz, got sick and had to go to St. Louis to the hospital in 1959, Peggy and Roger took in my youngest brother, Joe, who was only a year old. Each of us kids went to a different family. The Seiz family is forever grateful to each of these 5 northend families who added one more child to their families. Your parents had already moved to the country so we didn't get to see you. I remember Steve and Stuart growing up on N. 22nd St. Such fond memories, and your parents were a big part of this special group. She lived a full life always helping others with a smile on her face. She lives on in all of you. She made a HUGE difference in our lives during a very difficult time.

Fritz was my uncle. My father was his older brother. He had an older sister Rosemary. He grew up in Clinton ILL. His mother Louise died in 1938 when he was only 12 years old. This had to be very hard on a boy that young. When he graduated high school in 1944 he and some of his buddies joined the air force. When he was discharged from the air force he came to Peoria ILL and my dad helped him get a job with the T.P.& W Railroad. For some reason at the last moment he decided not to join the railroad and the next thing we knew he had joined the state police. My being only 7 at the time I do not know the details. He and Kathy for many years enjoyed going to AZ and visiting his sister Rosemary in the summer. Uncle Fritz and my dad as I recall were not that close. I guess being 8 years difference in age was the reason because there was never a bad word between them. In the last 6 or 7 years of my dads life they had started visiting back and forth. The last time I saw Uncle Fritz was when he came to my dads funeral. After I retired I wanted to reconnect with him and upon visiting at his home in Springfield found out his wife Kathy had died the previous year. He told be a lot of stories of the two of them growing up in Clinton. After that visit I made it a point to call him once a month to check on him. I told him I regretted not being closer over the years but life sometimes gets in the way of things. He seemed to understand. The last call I made was Jan. 2, 2018. A man answered and I asked if Fritz was there. He said he was the son-in-law and that he had come to take him to the Doctor and found him dead in his chair. Being he was 91 I guess that is good as it gets. Dying in the comfort of your own home and in your favorite chair. I remember him as a quiet, easy going, good-looking, ramrod straight man. The perfection of the State Trooper he was.

My grandma was like my second mom. She took care of my sister and I every single day during the summer when we were out of school. She taught us so many things like how to play the piano and bridge. She never failed to make us laugh and the memory that comes to mind the most is when she tried to vacuum all the wasps off the back deck. She loved to get dressed up, especially in her high heels, and wear her favorite perfume Chanel #5. She will be missed more than words could ever explain. I love you grandma and you are and will always be in my heart. Rest in peace and know that one day we will be together again.

Two things come to mind with Charles and Helen. Gaither music appreciation and Olivia's appreciation of your appreciation of her. When you all showed me the Homecoming magazine with Olivia's picture in it, it made my weekend - especially after a trying week. And throughout her first few years, it was so appreciated that you were usually behind us to say hi to and enjoy Olivia. I know that seems a bit shallow, but your kindness shown through. It is horrible that Charles will not be there to greet me and my family, but imagine how he is in the presence of a Holy Father where no tear shall fall and no spirit will be clouded. YOu and the families are certainly in our prayers.

Mr. Raney was my art teacher at Monroe Avenue School. He made a huge impression on my young, creative self! He turned my class into plein air artists when the weather allowed, and we worked in all kinds of mediums. What a privilege to have art in the classroom, and especially with Mr. Raney as the teacher. He was always encouraging, and always creating something of his own. He made a three-dimensional dragon built from cardstock that had the most intricate details, like the chains built of tiny links of paper, and each and every scale... numerous paintings and drawings... I remember him showing me the pictures of the huge banner he created for President Jimmy Carter! It has been more than 42 years since I was in his class, and I have forgotten many details of my school years, but I have said his name countless times over the years, and described him as one of my most important art influences. I am thankful that I can say I was his student. What a significant loss, and my heart and prayers go out to his family and friends. RIP, Lynn Raney.

I'm so sorry to hear about Mr. Raney, he was my Art teacher at Kelly Ave. Grade School. My prayers go out to his family.

 

Ilene Casebeer posted on 12/31/17

In the mid-70s at Kelly Avenue Grade School in Peoria Heights- Lynn was my art teacher. Imagine my surprise, years later, when I had just started delivering for Federal Express, I had a delivery for one L. Raney at a downtown office. Every time Lynn and I came across each other here in Springfield, it was a pleasure to see him again. For me and many Peoria Heights "kids", Lynn will never be forgotten. All we need to do is look up at the water tower in the center of the village and his woodpecker says "we're home".

Linda Dillon was one of the sweetest sisters- in-law anyone could ever have. She was always fun loving, caring, and compassionate. I have so many great memories of family times when we would spend weekends together, stay up late, and enjoy our kids. In recent years I got to know her even better through phone conversations. I will miss being able to call and text and share pictures back and forth with her. She loved the Gaithers and other Christian music. She would share her favorites, and I did the same. I know her faith was strong, and I look forward to seeing her one day again soon.Then there will be no more death, pain or sorrow. I'm looking forward to the family reunion!!

I was so sad to read of Linda's passing. I worked with Linda for many years at DCFS. She was a wonderful person; very steady, compassionate, and kind. She was a hard worker, and always made a positive impact on those around her. I enjoyed many conversations with her about our children and families, and it was very apparent that Linda cared deeply for her children, whom she loved so very much.

 

Cindy Cass, River Birch posted on 12/28/17

I am so terribly sad to the passing of my dear friend. Marjorie was by far one of my favorites at River Birch. Her face always lit up on Saturdays when I was there to take care of her. She would always tell me she could depend on me. I am going to miss our talks and seeing her smiling face. RIP Marjorie. You will be missed. Janet if you see this message, please contact me at River Birch, 698-4008, on Saturday or Sunday. Would like to talk to you.

Your mother/grandmother was our school nurse when I taught first grade at St. Agnes School in Springfield. She was a beautiful, loving, caring person who fulfilled her role in a wonderful way. We exchanged Christmas cards for many, many years. Marjorie has always remained in my prayers. Seeing her name brought back loving memories; I know you will miss her. My prayers to you, her family. God bless.

Linda was a very special person; I worked with her at DCFS and learned much from her. She was always willing to help; to do what it would take to make sure you understand and accomplished the task at hand. She always saw the best in people and always went out of her way to help. Walking with the Angels now; I'm a better person to have know you.

My prayers go to you during this time of loss. You mom was certainly a special spirit that was sent from above to bring the two of you into this world, be a wonderful mom and a bright light for so many. I am so grateful I was able to come visit all of you a few weeks ago. Visiting your mom was like time had not moved at all. Loved her laugh, her unique sense of humor and her calm soothing voice. She was always kind and thoughtful of others. She loved all of you so much and if she had it her way, she would still be physically here. I am a true believer “The first law of thermodynamics, also known as Law of Conservation of Energy, states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed; energy can only be transferred or changed from one form to another.” and thus, she is watching over you. She knows you are hurting, let her arms embrace you as you grieve. Remember all the loving times and keep them close always. Love You. Lisa

I want to express my condolences to your family. I read about your loss on gofundme. I know that words, and money can't change what has happened, but I do know that God's word provides comfort and hope during times of tragedy. I wanted to share that comfort and hope with you in a few verses and I hope it helps you endure this tragedy. Jeremiah 29:11, “‘For I well know the thoughts that I am thinking toward you,’ declares Jehovah, ‘thoughts of peace, and not of calamity, to give you a future and a hope. And you will call me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.’" Revelation 21:4, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Lastly John 5:28,29, "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment." What wonderful promises and comfort God's word provides. Your family is in my thoughts.

I've known Ed since 2001 when he moved into the apartment building that I manage. He was a sincere man and he truly loved his life adventures and spoke of them with fond memories. Many years ago, my young son interviewed him on several occasions for a school project and Ed graciously shared his time, life stories and military experiences with him. On recent visits to the Presbyterian Home Ed talked about his love for golf and getting out on the golf course again. I pray that he is at peace on the course.

Indeed it is sad that you are mourning the loss of your dear Susan. Please accept my condolences and know that our loving God is keenly aware of the pain you’re experiencing. The Bible shows that in due time, he will eliminate all suffering on earth, including death. Therefore, you can appreciate how the Bible further stresses the fact as you view the video below: vimeo.com/237368772

One of my friends was telling me about her grandmother already planning her funeral home. She wants to help her grandmother find a funeral home and make those decisions. She would find comfort knowing that this a smart thing to do early on like you mentioned in this article.

Donna was always fully engaged in everything she did. As a nurse, she cared deeply about the patients under her care, but also about their families and the other caregivers on the case. She was never hesitant to chide someone who was not performing up to her standard of care. It was part of her DNA to be incredibly loyal to all the physicians with whom she worked, and that loyalty and friendship extended years after their care for patients had ended. To be her friend was more than just a casual title. She took great joy in facilitating friendships. She had a special loyalty for her real family, and no matter the circumstance, she would be there to support and defend them. Take that, “fast hands” Mike! So many of us miss Donna because she made our lives more joyous.

I am so sorry to hear of Loren's passing. After he retired from Hillier Allied, he used to stop by my office at the Illinois Movers' Association to say hello and keep up with the moving industry. It was a happy coincidence that he was part of the Vost family, since I grew up with Stu and Bev. We talked about many things, but hadn't visited for many years. In fact I was just thinking of him the other day and wondering about him. My sincere condolences to everyone who loved Loren. He was truly a sweet, memorable man.

To the friends and family of Mr Metzger, i am very sorry to hear about your loss. The loss of a loved one is one of the hardest things to endure, but God promises us that it wont always be this way. Isaiah 25:8 and Revelation 21:3, 4 are evidence of that. These promises can give you hope for the future and comfort now, while you endure. Again, I am sorry for your loss and i hope you can have some comfort.

One of my favorite memories of Boz is the story he told me about having a worker in the cafeteria ask him “why do they call you 8 oz.” he said what, to which she replied your name tag says 8oz (Boz) was what was on the tag! We all had the biggest laugh over that! Even after I retired anytime I would come back to visit, he would always flash “that big smile” and how everything was going. I will always remember him as a big robust guy with a one of a kind smile.

Jimmie R. Sanges posted on 11/28/17

Thanks for the memories old friend . Some will say the memories of our friend are a gift from God . I like to think they are a gift from Brice himself , so as to think of him from time to time . Everyone who ever had the privilege of meeting " The BOZ " were immediately met with the BIGGEST smile you ever seen ,lol . From the earliest days of our friendship , Brice was the one all of us younger ones from our neighborhood wanted to be more like . Tall , handsome , usually tan , all the girls liked , and of course that great big smile he had . One of my earliest memories of Brice is this husky , 8 or 9 year old flying at me sideways on his GREEN MACHINE BIG WHEEL , stops and ask if I wanna come ride up and down his driveway . Even back then , he loved to ride . He loved his Doritos and Hershey's Chocolate Syrup in milk . Brice , Kenny Holmes and I would play Atari's Pitfall Harry for hours on end in Kenny's basement . There were summer's where Pat , myself ,Kenny and Frankie Reagan would be at Brice's house from dawn till dusk playing basketball . One day Brice and I took our game a little too seriously . We ended up over the fence somehow into Holmes Daycare . Fought like it was to the death for a good minute or so , fat lips , bloody noses and all . Five minutes and a drink outta the garden hose later , we played together the rest of the day . I remember on some night's after playing all day , he and I would lay on our back's on his steep driveway while looking up at the stars . The concrete still warm from the day's sun . We would just lay there talking about god knows what , until Bill or Marylyn would call him in for the night . Then there was the BB Gun caper . One summer day we are sitting in Brice's living room watching the tube when I , in all my teenage wisdom , decided to point his Pellet gun at him , thinking I had made sure it was empty . I pulled the trigger just as Brice smacked the barrel up toward the ceiling , leaving a not so nice hole in his parent's ceiling . He never let me live that one down . For years afterward , he would mess with me jokingly about it . I don't think he ever knew just how bad I felt about that . I never heard a word from his Mom or Dad , and I always just assumed he had taken the blame , as that was just in his character to protect his buds . We would mow the Millers grass for $ 5 .00 , that's $ 2.50 apiece for all you youngsters reading this ,lol . Brice and I would ride or bicycles ( a few years later our Motorcycles ) down to the Hostess Bread Store on South Grand on Wednesday to get the $ 1 . 00 bags . Come back to his house and pig out on Suzy Q's and HO HO's and chocolate milk . We would do wheelies on Brent's ( without his knowledge , please don't thump my melon ) ten speed bike all the way around the block non stop . Great times those were . Then there was the time Brice jumped his RED , Honda 75 over the basements on Witch Hazel Dr. INSTANT NIEGHBORHOOD LEGEND STATUS , LOL . He was going so fast he flew a good 20 feet high and a good 100 or so feet through the air . He completely disappeared into the trees behind the basements . That made him our hero ,lol for sure . Our younger years just flew by so fast . I remember like it was just yesterday when Brice got his first car , like a Red 78 Honda Civic I think . He was soooo proud of that car, even though he was so tall and looked kinda funny packed into it , but one of us finally had wheels , and of course it was THE BOZ , LOL. One day he tells me , and I quote , " I love this car man , I have this little beast mastered already ! " The very next day he flipped it out by the lake !! But you see , that was THE BOZ , ever confident . I am lucky to have been a part of his life long enough , that I could be here all week with memories of Brice , but this will be the last and most dearest memory I have of him to share with you all . I have NEVER shared this story with anyone , not even my wife of 21 years . ( It will be perfectly clear to you all after reading this as to why Brice and I did not mention this to anyone until we were much older ,lol ) I think the year was 80 or 81 or so . Brice's Dad Bill had built a beautiful bike from what was left of a crashed and burnt up one . He worked forever on it and finally got a VERY NICE paint job done . It was Bill's Baby and EVERYONE knew it . Brice an I , being typical preteens , were messing around in Bill's garage next to the bike .To this day I don't know how , but the kickstand gets knocked out from under it .We were right there when it fell towards the both of us . We catch it , but are really struggling just to keep it from hitting the concrete floor . By this time we both had tears streaming down our faces as we knew the price WE BOTH would surely pay if the bike were to hit that floor . After what seemed like an hour , but most likely more like 30 or 40 seconds , we somehow managed to inch the bike back up enough for Brice to reach the kickstand and stand it back up . We sat there sobbing and exhausted , in disbelief at what had just happened , we started to half laugh and half cry together . He then looked over at me and gave me that BIG OLE SMILE , EVER CONFIDEN'T , and I knew right then that it would be ok . That was and is BRICE BOSIE !! This is THE BOZ I will always remember , young , strong , confident , full of life and MOST of all , a friend that was ALWAYS there at your side when you needed someone the most . My memories of Brice belong to all of you out there now , cherish them the way I have my whole life , then telling them to you all will have been worth it . I encourage ALL of Brice's Family and friends to share a special memory or two or three of him that you may have . I want to know all I can about my friend that Time separated me from . Lets give his loving WIFE and his Mom and Brother all the love and support they can take . We all loved him , now let's all help in remembering him . I will see you again Brice , With all my love brother , your friend , Jimmie Sanges . Thanks for the Memories old friend .

There was no doubt that Barb and Ron were a Fantastic Team and they worked side by side all their lives!

We laughed about you being my second mom. You would say "yes"but I'm much meaner". We would laugh. Thanks for buying that dress for me when mom couldn't afford it. Thanks for always kicking me in the butt when you knew I needed it. Thanks for needing me as much as I needed you in life. I will miss you forever.

They wanted so badly to go to the hospital to see their daughter and their new grandchild. When my husband and I told them to go on to the hospital and we would watch Kevin and Michael, they were so happy. It was great to see that. I know she will be missed by her family and friends.

The one thing she was always showing me how to do is quilling. She always had a different quilling project each week. She was very patient with a young girl that was not very artistic, so I thought. I realize now, that is when I actually started thinking creatively. She will be greatly missed. Mom and I are sorry we will not be able to make the services, we are out of town.

I remember Kitty as one of the nicest receptionist ever at Springfield Clinic. I worked as a nurse on third floor with her for several years. Then I was at her daughter Ann's house where she got me interested in stamping. She would do anything for anyone. She was as fine a Christian lady as there ever could be. Heaven will be much brighter with Angel Kitty there!! To her family I send my condolences.

Carol, and Girls, I loved your daughter/ mom, my heart breaks for everyone of you, she helped me in a difficult time in my own life, when I needed it the most, she got me into the right doctor, at the right time, truth is she saved my life, if I had waited it would have been a different outcome. Like you said she was always their if you needed her. She was beautiful. She loved her children with all her heart, and she loved those grandchildren. As hard as it is for us to understand why, this is from someone on the outside, I know she tried, she tired very hard, she just was so heart broken inside. What I can tell you, she is at peace, most of all she is with her loved ones Harvey, Cindy and most of all Logan they are by her side. Remember the great memories, fun times, never forget her laugh, I never will. Love to all..

My most persistent memory of Regina is her smile, which the photo captures perfectly. Whatever life threw at her Regina would first complain loudly--and then break out in a smile. An earlier memory--when I was just a kid and visited Springfield, I was always fascinated by Gina's French braids. I had never seen French braids before, and I thought they were so sophisticated.

What I have come to know and now cherish is that few people in life leave such a complete and lasting impression on you like my grandmother Nancy. She lived a remarkable life. And how dignified! She was luminary in her beliefs, strong in heart and conviction, graceful in her actions, and generous in spirit and deed. She possessed an inspired sense of refinement and style and worked nimbly to share that gift with others. She was a guiding light and pillar of support. While growing up, words of advice and encouragement were standard fare over dinner that she would prepare for us kids on nights my mom worked at St. Johns Hospital. These are some of my favorite memories of her. A heartfelt thanks for such Blessings. What a beautiful legacy she has left behind. Shining generations of family who will dearly miss her and continue to honor her in accomplishment. Godspeed you home.

I like that you talked about how caskets and urns can really affect the entire price of the funeral. I have been planning a funeral for my father, and I wasn't sure what to choose. I can see how it would be smart to start with more expensive decisions, so I can plan the rest of the services accordingly.

 

Dave Jecklin posted on 11/3/17

Dear Fry family -- I lived in Bloomington, IL when you did and was very involved in the Prairie Cities Soccer. Through that I became a friend of your wonder husband and father. When we / I moved a group of boys born in 1969 in the "travel league" around central Illinois Dave was supportive and encouraging and helpful. In 1983 when we wanted to take them into the high school soccer arena Dave was very supportive and encouraging and helpful. Dave helped us establish the first high school program at U-High in Normal. I and the other many parents who helped me could never have done it without "our man" at the IHSA's (who really liked soccer) help. He always had time for my many questions both with PSCL and U-High. He was a very good man -- a very good Christian -- I was sad when I moved on from U-High after my son graduated and the U-High folks ran the program. May God's wonderful strength and comfort surround all of the Fry family in the days to come -- with your knowing that Dave is at "home" with his heavenly Father. Sincerely Dave and Kari Sand-Jecklin Morgantown, WV

Those who knew Larry will forever remember him. He is timeless, and, of a quality rarely found. Connie, remember his fear of water. One day, he decided to conquer - or, at least manage it. He took the TOW (terrified of water) program at the YMCA. At lunch, he would leave work and get in that water. He had one of us accompany him - just in case. He did it! And that was Larry. He overcame obstacles. He had many gifts. Just as you have so many memories. Please know that you have many friends and that we keep you in prayer.

A fellow vet posted on 10/26/17

In May 1974, I was assigned to the 1/509th ABCT (Vincenza, Italy) when the unit jumped into Eindhoven, Holland to commemorate the 30th anniversary of D-Day and Operation Market Garden. Before we left Italy, we were advised to take some military patches to hand out as souvenirs. There were over 50,000 Dutch citizens on the drop zone (literally) to welcome our arrival, and I ran out of American flag patches, as well as unit patches (especially the ones I still had from the 101st) within a matter of minutes. Someone 'appropriated' my helmet before I could get it secured, but the memories I have from that experience was well worth the $20 it cost me to replace it. After a brief unit formation, we were dismissed and allowed to spend the remainder of the day in the city/among the people. It was almost impossible to buy a meal or a drink, because the Dutch people insisted on paying. Many of the troops were invited into their homes for meals and celebration. Virtually everyone I met spoke English, most very fluently. After I asked one of the citizens about it, he explained that English was a required subject for every Dutch student, because they wanted to honor the memory of the American soldiers that fought to liberate their country from the Germans. Although I traveled to many areas of Europe during my time in the military, I never felt more appreciated, or proud to be an American soldier, as I did in Eindhoven. So, to the family of SSG Michael Aielleo, please take comfort in knowing that 30 years after he fought to protect the Dutch, they never forgot his sacrifice and were still honoring his service.

I liked that you had mentioned that it could be important to figure out what will be needed at the funeral and needed for it to run successfully. My wife's father passed away last night and I've taken it upon myself to take care of handling the funeral for her so I've been looking around. I might have to figure out what he would have liked to be at the funeral and plan accordingly and hopefully, I can find a service that will help me with all of that.

Jim & Family, I'm so sorry for your loss. Although it's been many years since I've seen you, I have such fond memories of Jim & Jose, Joe & Shirley A. and myself and our dinners at McShane's (among other places). She was a great lady and I enjoyed the time we all spent together back in the "flying days".

To all the Family...For the brief 2 years I was blessed with knowing Tom, his enthusiasm not only inspired me; it boosted my perception of situations & opportunities. Just this morning Jack Feather & I were talking about how when Tom would look at You, the wry smile & cocked eyebrow told that he was reading us...Too well sometimes! Tough to think of coming back to events in Springfield in his absence...We'll see him on the other side.

 

Jay Jones posted on 10/14/17

I only had the pleasure of knowing Tom for the past few years. We spoke often during his cancer treatment two years ago. Having had cancer eight times myself, we talked about how important our faith had to be to overcome. However, if it was Gods will, then we were ready. I know that Tom took his faith in God with him as God took him home. His strong faith was just one of the many quality things that I could mention about this wonderful man God allowed us to enjoy, even if it was for too short a time. You have earned your peace Tom, I know you are enjoying that peace with God.

Pat, my Mom and Pop and many of their friends danced together in the Rockettes of Ages and The Golden Girls and Guys and made great memories together. Pat was the only professional dancer in their group of Springfield seniors, she'd danced in the same venues and at the same times as stars like Bob Hope. As this Springfield group of dancers aged they had the usual aches and pains that accompany growing older but as soon as the music for each show and their numbers began Pat said the dance took all the discomfort away. She was an inspiration to others in her dance group and to me - she had grit and exercised her talents even in her advancing age. Pat is another member of "the greatest generation" for us to remember and model; even when we're not at our best the show must go on and we have to give it our all. Thanks Pat, you'll always be a star in my play book!

I am so deeply sorry to hear of your loss! I only knew Dennis the last two years of high school when our family moved to Mechanicsburg. I thought of him often because he had such an open and caring personality and was always making everyone laugh. I lost my husband of 38 years to cancer 7 years ago and though I wouldn't wish this on anyone, I take comfort knowing that Dennis had such a big, loving family to help each other through it all! I pray that you feel the love of Christ every day and know that there are others lifting you up and willing to share your load!

I grew up with my favorite aunt right around the corner and a short walk down the street. She was always there for me with a smile, a hug and a good laugh. Time, distance and circumstances separated us for too long but when those circumstances changed we reconnected and that same smile, hug and laugh was waiting for me. A long talk on the phone, fun visits when in town, and we helped each other with the unexplained and missing pieces of our past. An understanding I cherish and I believe we both longed for. She left too soon but she leaves a lot of love behind. What more can one ask for in life? . To a special lady. Thanks Aunt Dolly

I can still remember when all of us were kids, we would visit Betty & Art at their lake home and the favorite thing to do was ride the peddle John Deere tractor. A fight usually ensued over who was next to ride. I will always remember Steve being there for my dad's (Richard Squires) funeral in Defiance. What a tribute it was to Steve's committment to family. I am sure he will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him. My deepest sympathy to you Trish and family

My deepest condolences to the Link Family and I am so sorry for your loss. This community and the Church of the Brethren Family has definitely lost a wonderful woman. Everyone she met and was associated with I know will miss her greatly. Every time I sing a song, hum a tune, read a sheet of music or try to play a musical instrument, I always think of Mary Jean. I remember she tried to so hard and sometimes to frustration to help me and my dad in the church choir to keep us in tune and in time with everyone else. Even though practices were sometime every Thursday, after you got over of having to be in attendance, it was always worth it to have Mary Jean extend her warm comments and conversations, and then it wasn't so bad. She always jumped in in with all she had in everything she did to make things go as planned. I know my mother and father were good friends with Mary Jean and Al in and away from the Church and again, I extend my deepest condolences and hoping you well through this time. You all are in my prayers. Welch Family.

Mrs. Link was my Wilcox Elementary School music teacher in the very early 1970's while I was in first and second grade. Although our lives never crossed after that, I vividly remember her as one if not the best teacher I ever had. Her passion for teaching was beyond measure. I was not surprised upon reading her tribute of her zest for life as well.

To the Peters Family: I am sorry to hear about Rita's death. It is never easy to deal with losing a loved one because death is something unnatural to us. May God's promise to eliminate death in the future provide you hope for a brighter future (Isaiah 25:8).

To the Fromm Family: I am sorry to hear about Robert's death. It is never easy to deal with the death of a loved one no matter the circumstances. May God's promise to end all suffering and pain serve as a source of hope during these distressing times (Revelation 21:4).

I have great memories of Cousin Betty. Our family - the Borowski's and Betty's family spent many, many holidays and family dinners together. The "Brause" cousins were the cousins who lived near us and other cousins were scattered over the country. I loved to hear Betty and sister Marcella play the piano - especially the duets they would play. I always begged them to play whenever we would get together. They were "Very" good. I also enjoyed visiting Betty and Marcella when they lived in Fergus Falls and attended Senior High School. There was no bussing in those days. They had a cute little upstairs apartment not too far from our home on Bancroft Avenue. We often stopped after school to visit. Betty was a kind and gentle soul and I don't ever remember her losing her temper. She was a special lady and I have warm memories of her.

Planning a funeral before you die is something that always seemed weird to me, but as I get older it is starting to make sense to me. It's good to know when it comes to the final costs there are things that I need to keep in mind to be able to create the budget for it. One thing I never even considered paying for is obituary costs, flowers, and any other possible services that I might want; this makes sense so that I can make sure that everything is covered when I pass and my family won't have to worry.

They were all such a hoot to watch..I enjoyed and looked forward to their company. It was always a highlight of my day! Ryan would've definitely left a positive mark on this world..and did so with the short time he was here. Now it's OUR job to keep his light alive!! Make the choices in your life to do good, help others, show compassion, love one another.....I know this is what Ryan would want for us. Prayers for you as you walk through this time.

Her kindness and yours to me and my little girl Raiyn will be with us always. I have this habit when I have our little dog out in the evening of looking up at the stars and talking to my parents for a minute. Now I talk to Diane too. There is no doubt in my mind that she is there with her little Sophie listening and smiling while she watches over you. By now she knows why God called her home and I know she is doing her job with love just like she lived. You and her sisters have my heartfelt condolences.

To The Family and Friends of Mr. Milton Beck, Hello. Although I didn't know Mr Beck or the family personally, I do want to express my condolenses to everyone who knew him. When we lose a loved one, it can be one of the hardest things to deal with. I wanted to share a scripture from the bible with you that has comforted me in the loss of a loved one. That is Revelation 21:4, which says, "God will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more. Neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." I'm sure that in these trying times, you have experienced many of these feelings. This scripture is a promise from God himself, talking about the hope for the future that he has given us. Won't it be wonderful when this promise is fulfilled? I hope this can be encouraging to you. Again, I am very sorry for your loss.

To the family and friends of Ms Mary Jo Walker, Hello. While i did not know Mary, I do want to express my condolences to you for your loss.

And Death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." No doubt, you've experienced these expressions of pain in theses recent times. Won't it be wonderful when all of these things are wiped out of our lives? God promises us that this time will come. He gives us the hope and comfort we need to go on because he is the God of all comfort (1 Corinthians 1:3, 4). I hope this gave you some encouragement and, again, I am very sorry for your loss.
