Promise no one will ever hurt you again
Tell you I Love you and you’re my best friend
Kiss you and kiss you and kiss you
Show you how much I’ve missed you
Wipe the tears from your eyes no tissue

Look into your eyes and cry
Tell you how I’ve missed your ray of sunshine
Ask you to please never leave my side

Wonderful Aunt Pat,
It was so lovely to have met you. To have had you, be a part of Mike and I’s Life. So appreciative of all the help you offered, to make our wedding day so special. We missed having you there. You sure made my nieces look gorgeous. Dresses they still love to wear a year later. Pictures we will have for a lifetime, a part of you... forever.
You were able to meet more of my family, and share your joy of dress making with them, and your quirky, goofy self. They told me how they had so much fun meeting you.
You always reached out to chat, on messenger. Always let me know you were available. Thank you for everything, and touching my life in a special way.
It’ll be sad to not have more moments in this world with you. But I know you will be with us all, you cared so much about your family.
Mike and I, love you and miss you. Rest peaceful, Pat, until we meet again. Xoxo

Pat was my friend and next-door neighbor for over 30 years. What a good man he was! I got to know him most from our Tuesday night trips to the St. Mary of the Woods bowling league. Based on 33 years of bowling together, that’s over 1000 trips to and from the bowling alley together!
Here are some of the comments about Pat that were shared by his friends in the bowling league:
Frank Ring: Pat and I bowled on the same team for many years, and I can't imagine having a nicer teammate than Pat.
Jamie Toohey: My favorite teammate! How many times did this proud man with a high handicap step up and roll three strikes in the 10th. RIP!
Tom Dreher: I just met Pat last year, my 1st in the league & very much enjoyed the few conversations I had with him. My prayers are for him & his family.
Pat McGonagle: so sorry to hear about our favorite Lad
Mike Garvey: Rest In Peace Patrick!
Don Marchman: Rest in peace my good man.
Mel Winer: regards to pat’s family…at the first week of bowling a league wide toast (to Pat)
Taki Kostopoulos: We will miss him.
Dave Harrington: Pat was a good man and I’ll keep him in my prayers.
Scott Block: The league will not be the same without him.
George Saffa: Pat, Rest in Peace..... such a quiet gentleman
Pat just celebrated his 40th year in the St. Mary of the Woods Bowling league, the most of anyone who bowled this past year. Jamie mentioned how Pat always came through in the clutch. When the going got tough, Pat got going! It turns out Pat is the second most frequent champion the league has ever had. He was on a championship seven different times. The only person with more championships is his teammate for most of those years, Joe Ring, who had eight championships. (Thank you, Walt Schmit, for your incredible league record-keeping).
One of the things I most enjoyed was getting the news update from Pat on our weekly car rides. He would always tell me the latest that he just heard on the news. We really enjoyed talking about the Bears, Cubs, Blackhawks, and the Bulls. I even got him to talk about the White Sox once in a while! And when we got to the alley, he really enjoyed himself. Whether it was the Pat Forde fist bump at the pins when he threw a strike, or the thumbs up he would give as he humbly lowered his eyes whenever he was complimented, we all loved that man.
Pat was a kind and gentle man with a good heart. He will always be my friend and I will truly miss him.

Dear Aunt Marge & Cousins Alan, Michael and ‘Little’ Margie,
This is Annie Sundberg, daughter of your Uncle Bernie Sundberg (your dad’s brother) & my mom Ann Sundberg. I am sorry for your loss and want you to know that I have very fond memories of Uncle Howie and all your family. My sisters are Bernadette, Karen and Christine. We grew up on 73rd & Halsted in an apartment above the sheet metal company where both your dad & mine worked … so we saw quite a lot of Uncle Howie. He was a blast and made us laugh with his wit, fun and antics … a massive snowball fight with the neighborhood will forever be etched in my memory. And “Everybody in the pool!” Unfortunately, we lost track after my parents divorced. I have no idea when we last saw each other … a lifetime ago indeed … take care.
Love & Peace,
Annie (Sundberg) Sadler
P.S. I wrote this message right after Uncle Howie's service which I could not attend in person. Today I looked up Uncle Howie's obituary again, more or less reminiscing about family since Aunt Dorothy passed away this week. When I looked at the online condolences, I saw that mine was not here ... so I'm resubmitting.

I only knew Vince very briefly, but in a very trying time I felt so privileged to have someone of his strength, quality of character, and integrity as part of our team. He embodied so many attributes that we strive for that and so many of us struggle to achieve. Let it be said that he was always firm with us, but fair. Let it be said he always faced the truth while keeping us on target. Let it be said he kept us at 120% steam while always watching our backs.
I think my favorite memory of Vince was maybe the second time we met. We didnt know each other very well, and we were still trying to decide if we would work well together. We went to dinner at a hole in the wall place in Florida, Basilico Ristorante for a nice pasta dinner. And I was adamant that we discuss things, figure out a strategy, and tackle the hard issues....and about 3 bites into our dinner that all evaporated when he turned to me and said with a completely serious face "John, I haven't heard a word you have said, but this is the best damn pasta I have eaten in a long time. Can you try and repeat that after dinner?" And from that moment on I know I would do whatever I could to work with Vince.
Vince will be supremely missed and I think many will continue to try to live by the example he set for us.

On behalf of my husband and I, we would like to express our condolences for the loss of your beloved John. May you be comforted by the words found in the Bible at John 5:28,29 where God says “the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out” thus promising a resurrection when we can see our dead loved ones again. May these words and the memories of your loved one bring you comfort during this difficult time.

I saw a lot of Aunt Marie when I was little; she lived with Grandma and Grandpa Scherer before she got married. I think she borrowed my pop-beads to wear as a necklace one night when she went out. I was at Aunt Marie's and Uncle Pete's wedding because my mom was one of the bridesmaids. And in later years I spent time with her when I went to visit my mom at her condo in Florida; Aunt Marie had the condo next door, so the three of us did many things together. I think Aunt Marie was the last of the "older generation" of our family; we are the older generation now.

I don't remember having said that, but I let him finish. He said he was was moving to Naples Florida and asked if I would be interested in buying his business. It took me a few months, but I did buy Litton Interiors in 1986, and loved every minute of owning it. In his office he had a framed picture of himself with President Eisenhower. He was so proud of that picture and told me that at the time he did the design work for Camp David. I will never forget him and am very sad to hear of his passing. It was his called that changed my life for the better.

In my short tenure at IAFC, Khamphoui Singvongsa was one of four contact center supervisors. Even though he was not my direct supervisor, I felt that he still was. He took on the “father approach” when the other supervisors were not available. He took his time with us to show us how to do things the correct way. He complimented when you did well. He checked on us to make sure we were able to do our jobs. He made sure we were ok. His demeanor and mannerisms were reserved, yet Khamphoui would surprise you with his sense of humor, which to me, was the greatest thing to see. To see and hear him laugh was a joy. His leadership, service, dedication and kindness will always be felt in spirit & highly respected. Family, friends, & co-workers, my deepest & sincerest condolences go out to all of you.

Our other family members would just looked at us and started laughing too, but had no idea why. I will miss my brother dearly. It wouldn’t be the same without my brother Phoui.

To all of Dinah’s family a sincere condolence, Dinah has been a good friend through the years, and through her became friends with Shirley, I’m grateful to have known
Mary aunty, was like a second mother to my sister and me when we first arrived in the US around 40 years ago. She was the embodiment of all that is good in a person - warm, caring and with a big heart. I remember spending the long weekends and other holidays with uncle Lucas and her, and thoroughly enjoyed her pampering (and cooking :)) - good memories and I am certain that she will be always remembered by those who knew her for her warm and loving nature. She has been reunited with uncle now and is definitely feeling the warmth and love of His grace. May her soul rest in peace.
I met Mary in February of 1977, her sisters Shanti and Sheila had given me her telephone number. This was my first visit to the US, she and Lucas helped my children and me settle down. Over the years we became very good friends, and an extended family. Mary and Lucas were wonderful human beings, we will cherish our time spent together over the years always, and we will miss her very much. May her soul Rest In Peace.
Mary Aunty and Lucas Uncle were always loving and welcoming. They made us a part of their family and help us adapt to this country. They were encouraging and gave us counsel, when necessary. Aunty was always there to lend a helping hand and be a surrogate mother to me. I will miss her.
Aunty and Uncle, whom she sorely missed, are together now.

Aunt Shirley will be greatly missed. I have known her since I was 3 yrs old, and I am now 71. We talked frequently and saw each other when we could. We always enjoyed being together. Family is important. I worked with her side-by-side for 7 years during high school and college when the business was called Economy Movers. I started at $1.25 per hour and left after my LU degree at $3 per hour. I always told her that I learned more from her than I did from my MBA. I asked her recently when she began to actually like me, and she quickly responded, “when you became an adult!” So she liked me longer than not liking me. Michael and I will truly miss her. We enjoyed all our visits with her. We so missed her at Christmas and the 100th celebration of New World Van Lines. Love and Prayers, Diane and Michael

For those of you that knew Tom, I am sure there are many moments you shared together. He was a very special person with a big heart and an even bigger smile on his face. For me he was much more than that.
As cousins we were very close. We grew up together, played together, danced together, laughed and even cried together. I can remember everything we did, from when we were kids to the adults we are now. We experienced a lot of firsts together. Like learning how to ride a bike, skate, to swim and how to drive our first cars. When we were young Tom and I would hang around our grandmothers house (Babcia Ludwika) and we would chase chickens, pick raspberries and spend time climbing the cherry trees. We even worked our first job together.
” Memories, Thats what lifes all about as we share them with the ones we love. Remembering others as they pass on to those pearly gates above. ”
As we grew up we still enjoyed eachothers company, we took numerous trips together, we stood up in each other’s weddings, celebrated each others birthdays, and even our kids play and laugh together. Tom was not only a great uncle to my kids but he also was an amazing Godfather who loved them with all his heart.
You truly will be missed Tomcio, may God bless your soul.
Rest in Paradise Tom 🙏🏼

Rachel you will be greatly missed.
I worked / job shared the position of Entrance Hall Monitor with Rachel at Skokie school the first year the school re-opened to 6th graders. I am so saddened to hear of her illness and passing! She had a genuinely warm spirit and kind heart! She was always smiling and had a positive outlook everyday! She was a wonderful person with kind words and actions! I am grateful to have known her - I am so sorry for your loss.

Dear Aunt Marge, Alan, Michael, and Margaret, so sorry to hear of Howie’s death. I remember when we would have snowball fights after Uncle Howie would get off from work. I feel bad that we have not been in touch throughout the years. I think of all my dad’s relatives often. Aunt Dorothy has my email if you would like to correspond. I will keep you all in my prayers.

I worked with Rachel at Skokie School many years ago. She was so kinda and so sweet. She always had a smile on her face, and made me feel at ease. I was shocked to hear of her passing.

Thank you, Rachel, for always knowing just the right thing to say, for always sharing your smile, for always having a plan, for always caring about everyone, for always de-stressing situations, and for not just keeping things afloat but for genuinely making others' days better. How did you manage doing all of that with an entire staff and a substitute pool? "Ask Rachel," was a Skokie School mantra many days! You, however, were always one step ahead, and your calm and collected persona always made me want to be better. Not very many people have the gift of always bringing out the best in people. Thank you so very much.
My heart goes out to your family, and I wish them strength. My older sister passed away from the same cancer. I learned that you cannot make sense out of nonsense, and despite your grief, life will hold together somehow. Rachel would want it to.

To the families and loved ones of Mrs. Owen, who we know will be dearly missed. Almighty God promised at Relevation 21:4 that he will wipe away all our tears. And death, pain, and sorrow will be no more. So, you can take great comfort from drawing close to God in prayer. And he will help sustain and support your families to endure. During these difficult times and in the months to follow. My deepest condolences to all your loved ones.

We are all so saddened by the news of David’s passing. He was a most caring and unique man.
His head and heart revolved around you, Nancy. In the office, or on the road, he would constantly mention your name
We worked together at Walgreens for over three decades. David and Laurie Meyer were the key individuals who were able to inspire thousands of employees with their splendid communi-
cation and technology skills. He was both a leader and a great team player.
David’s wry wit and “can do” attitude kept his team going .... sometimes for 24 hours straight! He could handle events of 20 people to 5,000 people with aplomb. In fact, he did his best work at the mega-meetings. So much of Walgreens success rode on the shoulders of dedicated individuals like David Harnish.
Now he is at rest. This good, good man. We will always remember David Harnish and smile...we were so lucky to know him.

To the Doetsch Family.....We are sad to hear that Bernie passed away, and were shocked to hear of your Mom's passing too when we searched for your Dad's obituary! They became friends back in the late 1950's before any of us were married. In fact, Bernie was a groomsman in our wedding.....tomorrow that will be 59 years ago. Because of distance (we've resided in California for over 40 years), we weren't able to spend much time together over the years, but we kept in touch nonetheless. We will always remember your parents fondly, and thank God for their friendship! Knowing their characters, personalities, and faith, it is with certainty that we can all find comfort in knowing that they are now at peace, resting in the loving arms of Jesus! May God bless all of you and bolster your spirits at this time of sadness with a myriad of happy memories! With love, Brad and Bunny Baggarly

God Bless Bernie and may he rest in peace. I knew Bernie in his later years of life as he was my brother Matt’s father-in-law so we would spend holidays and other family events together. Bernie was always polite and friendly to me. He kept up on the news and weather and liked to discuss these topics. I appreciated how he was an interested and engaged audience member in the many, many photography programs my husband showed us in Matt and Cathy’s family room. Even though he hadn’t been to many of these places, he took an active interest. Bernie struck me as a gentle soul, and as an honest, hard-working man in his lifetime. He raised three beautiful daughters, and I like every one of them! He and Madeline were such a nice couple and I will miss them both. Holidays and family events just won’t be the same. It’s comforting to think of them together again. May God Bless them and keep them.

I only knew Dan the past year or so. I would see him twice a week while volunteering. Although he seldom spoke, at times after playing catch or just having a visit (where I had learned to do all the talking), he'd reach out to shake hands or just have a smile and say HI!. Once I heard him quietly singing along with the music. That would be the highlight of my week -- Just to know that he may have had a moment of happiness or felt a level of comfort in his surroundings. I had lost my brother about 2 years ago, in the same way that you have lost Dan. The two were very much alike. I think they would have gotten along well together. Dan will be missed by many. He was one in a million-irreplaceable. To Dan's family - you are in my thoughts and prayers. Please consider listening to a song by Casting Crowns - Oh My Soul (you're not alone)

Then upon return to the states, we once again were reunited at the same duty station to serve out our last 2 years. Got to know Jerry quite well during this time as he was much "the giving sort of person". If he could help you with any problem you had, he was there to do so. Got some stories of trips we made home on quick weekends from Tenn. (he to Chicago and I to Battle Creek) as well as squad bay living at the Marine Barracks. He was definitely a dedicated Marine having survived Operation Hastings and the battle that took place on top the hill which devastated his company. Didn't see him much in the later years although we keep in contact thanks to the Internet. He'll always be one of my fondest memories of my military service.

Religion and art were our common ground and we enjoyed discussions related to them. She was the best to go to the Art Institute with, I learned something every time. I will always remember my first pay check and Madelyn offered to take me shopping, I still feel the sense of pride I had about the outfit she helped picked out. I will always remember her spectator pumps, her constant reading, her wonderful designs, her creativity, how she hated to light our gas oven and her acceptance for life itself.

We’ve lost a wonderful woman who is so well described in the notice. I just wanted to write a short, heartfelt tribute. I knew Madelyne as my brother’s mother-in-law, as Cathy’s mother, and as a wonderful grandmother. I spent so many Easter holidays, Thanksgivings, children’s birthday parties, first communions, graduations, 4th of July barbeques, Mother’s Days, and other family events at the O’Shea home with Madelyne. She was the one who sang “Over the River and Through the Woods” with me at Thanksgiving, and “Here Comes Peter Cottontail at Easter.” She was always up for singing with me and never turned me down. In recent years she tackled jigsaw puzzles with some of us and this past Thanksgiving she and I tackled a wonderful 500-piece jigsaw of Ireland – and Madelyne was good! I would ask for her help with a section and she was right on it. She had a great eye. I will remember Madelyne as a kind, loving spirited woman who greatly loved her family and others. She was kind to me and I am sad to say goodbye to her. Our holidays and family events will not be the same without her – and that’s the least of it. But Madelyne has now taken her sweet energy and smile to heaven and if it’s possible, heaven is an even better place because Madelyne is there.

Over 30 years ago, when I came to Old Irving Park, an amazing couple welcomed me. It took years before I could get their last name right, so imagine my delight when Jerry said we could call him "Ski." I always called him Jerry, but as our children were growing up under his watchful eye they found the shortened versions of Ski or Mr. Cz very helpful! Jerry was always present to find a solution to the problem at hand ... especially if it involved a tool of some kind. Whether it was a stud finder, power drill or carpentry solution, he was at the ready. When Ruby needed help with an award winning science project (about the validity of being an eye witness), Jerry stepped forward to be the "neighbor" who spotted the thief. There was the time we cluelessly drove all the way to a Wisconsin Badger/Western Illinois football game with Jerry's team's banner on the back of our Suburban. Helping edit his book on Vietnam was a journey I'll never forget, nor will my family forget his dedication to this country and how proud he was to have served. Jerry will always be the Chili Challenge Champion! I won't light a candle without hearing my favorite fireman's voice warning me about an open flame. My stories go on and on ... and with great joy I will share them because I will never forget my dear and treasured friend, Jerry. Deep love and heartfelt prayers go out to Mary, Amy, Jill, Paul, Sara and the rest of the remarkable Czarnowski family. Jerry made a difference in the lives of my family as he did for so many, many others. He will be missed, but joyfully remembered, for the rest of my days until we meet again.

Jim was a brilliant history teacher when I was president of St. Ignatius College Prep. It amazed and delighted everyone when, in his first years, the students voted him "Teacher of the Year," an honor usually for someone who had been here many years. Not only did he teach and assign work well, he was very personally helpful on an academic or spiritual basis with this students. I could always have an interesting conversation with him about current events. It was a pleasure to visit with him. Others on the faculty and staff had a similar experience.
I am now in a Jesuit assisted living facility near Milwaukee, not very mobile,
or would certainly concelebrate his funeral and offer condolences to Andrea and
the family in person. I will offer Mass for his peace and that of his family towards the end of this week --- and keep you all in my prayers.

My deepest sympathy to James’ family. I had the pleasure of having Mr. Hasten as my economics teacher at Saint Ignatius and he was, without a doubt, the one person who has inspired me the most. I look back at my memories of him with immense gratitude because he changed my life. I will never forget the smile he had while walking through the hallways in the morning and I will never forget how he always jumped to help when I would drop a stack of books. He was an incredible educator, an honorable mentor, and a kind man. If I could say one more thing to Mr. Hasten it would be: thank you for believing in me when I did not believe in myself. Your anecdotes about success will continue on in the lives of all of the students whose hearts you have touched. May he Rest In Peace.

Dear Andrea, Jared, Maria, Olivia, Tim, Julia, Brendan, Grace and Nora,
The O’Leary family extends their condolences on the loss of Jim. He welcomed all the O’Leary’s into his life and heart which we valued very much.
The kindness and love Jim bestowed on Andrea was second to none. To his children, your father was very proud of each of you and that you are in many ways like him with compassion and consideration for others. To his daughter in law and son in laws, he was very proud that you married into the Hasten family. Grace and Nora, the happiness and joy you brought into Poppa’s life made his final time on earth very enjoyable.
Being a teacher Jim did leave his mark in this world with those he taught but the greatest achievement of your father were the three children he brought into this world to make it a better place.
May God grant all of you the strength to endure this time of sadness.

It seemed like they were each others biggests fans as they would always make some kind of connection even just passing by eachother for a quick second. I would see him and Joan sitting and chatting with Liz from the spa. Liz and I would always say how we hoped to have the kind of marriage that Joan and Joseph have. I only knew Jospeh for a short while but I learned from him and he made an impact on my life forever. I am very thankful for that.
