Her brothers and sister will greet her again in joy, as Marie, Laure and I are feeling sorrow at our loss of a wonderful loving Aunt. ❤

My sincere condolences to his family and friends, I first meet Bob when I was using the Univac 1105 Computer at IIT to process structural analysis and design programs in late 1950’s when The Sargent & Lundy Structural Department first began to use computers. It was a challenging pioneering time when we began switching from the practice o manual design using a slide rule to the new sophisticated Computer. But Bob was their to help us through the ordeal. As we grew in its usage and as head of the Structural Analytical Division I hired Bob to work with us at S&L . He was knowledgeable and had an ability to teach others. He was instrumental in Teaching our senior draftsman how to use the new computer aided drafting programs{CAD). He was a joy to work with and I shall never forget his contribution to our success in implementing this new computer technology. Sincerely. Charles F. Beck

So many fond memories from our family reunions at Aunt Bea's house growing up! The ping pong, games, food, cousins, and laughter. It wasn't very often, but memorable. Throughout the years I was always touched when Aunt Bea would write a birthday card and let me catch up on her life, which was always so fun to catch up on. I was away for my birthday when I received the news. May Joanie and all of her family be a comforted knowing she was loved.

Joan & Gary, Deepest sympathies for your loss. Aunt Bea always greeted us with a smile & ushered us into their home for holiday gatherings. She made sure everyone was welcomed with open arms. Even after the years passed, she still sent a Christmas card - traditional by mail - every year!! Family was her joy. Reece, our youngest, shared her birthday, April 20th, 75 years later. So, I would call to wish her a happy birthday. She loves to talk about her grands & great-grands, how she loved her assisted living home-activities, food, & transportation, what Joan & Gary were up to...She was such an positive person, always seeing the best in everything. She will be missed.

Dear Mary, Christine, Charlene, Carol, Colleen, and Family, As the Director of Alumni Relations Emeritus, I offer you the sympathy and prayers of the Saint Viator/Sacred Heart of Mary community, as well as my own. Our hearts go out to you as you move through your journey of grief, now at the point of the one month anniversary. We pray for you as you continue to share the stories, laugh and cry, and find ways to celebrate the life of Richard and the love you shared. You all must be so proud of Richard’s service to both his country and the St. Thomas of Villanova faith community. As I read the obituary for this man who was a “beloved husband…loving father… doting grandpa, proud great-grandpa,” I was reminded of a reading from the Book of Sirach. “Let us praise an illustrious man, faithful to his family and friends, strong in his love. At peace in his heart and his world, he has left us his good name, and we recount his life of praiseworthy deeds. A generous man his good works will never be forgotten. Among his family and friends remains a rich inheritance born of him…. His name lives on from generation to generation. We gather to sing his praises. We proclaim his wisdom and love of life all our days.” May you be comforted by the memories of Richard and the love you shared! May the knowledge Richard, lives on in your goodness give you peace and hope! Take care and God bless you with the gifts you most need! Judith Judith Wampach Amberg - Saint Viator High School Director of Alumni Relations Emeritus

My sister and brothers and I were very sorry to learn of Rosemary's passing. God bless her and keep her. We were always very happy to see and chat with her at the regrettably infrequent gatherings of our Dad's (Maj Hermanson) childhood friends from the Rogers and Damen area, of which Chuck was part. It was clear that she was held in esteem by that gang - the Hermansons, Mountzes, Donlans, Spehns, Bill Jeffers, the Munos, Kauperts, and all of the St. Jerome's - Pottawatomie Park - Rogers Tap crowd, those urchins of the 20s and 30s who grew up to be the Greatest Generation and then created modern-day America before passing to their reward. Rosemary was a kind and sweet woman who could tell a funny story or two, and we'll miss her and hope she's having a grand reunion with all of her pals, and taking the time to keep a watchful eye on us all.

I love you cuz, and as usual it’s all about you! Rest easy and thank you for all you gave to me and everyone you knew.

Maria was an amazing woman. She always went out of her way to take care of others and you knew that when she was there it was going to be a good day, no matter how challenging that day would be. She lived life to the fullest and encouraged everyone around her to do the same. There are too many good memories to list. We love you sweet lady. May you Rest In Peace.

San Miguelito recuerda al maravilloso ser humano que fue entre nosotros el Padre Donaldo. Con él, un rayo de esperanza y poder de Dios llegó hasta las casas más humildes, las casas que él visitaba con verdadera pasión y alegría. Era un sabio, pero aprendía de todos y apreciaba a todos, especialmente a los más vulnerables. No sólo hablaba nuestro idioma, hablaba como nosotros...Era incansable, honesto, directo, amable y poseía un gran sentido del humor. Nos dio tanto y con tanto amor, que nunca podremos olvidarlo. Su entrega a la misión de San Miguelito fue total y volvió muchas veces a visitarnos, a pesar de sus enfermedades, él soñaba siempre con San Miguelito y con su gente. La muerte ha venido y no ha podido llevarse nada porque Donaldo todo lo entregó, se donó a sí mismo en una ofrenda de vida y amor, de servicio a la gente. Panamá te debe un monumento, pero tú dejaste muchos monumentos vivos que caminan por las calles de San Miguelito. Descansa, hermano Donaldo, pues el Señor ha afirmado la obra de tus manos y florece sin parar la semilla por ti plantada. Has resucitado entre nosotros y ya brilla para siempre en ti la luz esplendente del Cristo Redentor.

We are very sorry that, belatedly, we have now heard about the passing of an Angel like Dr. Theodora Ayot, whom we always called Sister Theodora. We -- like many, many others of the renamed Association of Third World Studies (ATWS), now Association of Global South Studies (AGSS) -- are shocked to learn this sad news. We remember our trip, with her, to Taiwan (Nationalist China) to attend the ATWS annual meeting, where I (Dr. A.B., as she and others called me for short) was elected to lead the ATWS as its new President for one year; she was a tremendous asset and supporter. Dear Sister Theodora, a perfect Lady and scholar, rest in perfect peace until we meet in Heaven, although your affable nature and the infectious laughter will always be missed. Truly, as British mournful poet Shirley wrote poetically, death is, indeed, the level[l]er, and that there is no armor against fate. You are at peace with the Lord, as you have joined your dear husband, Brother Ayot! Our deepest condolences to your dear children and bereaved family.

I am heart broken to hear of this. Dennis held a vey place in my heart! He welcomed me to Elkay when I first arrived many years ago, and was a special friend though the years I was there, both on the job and off. But, I was not unusual or exceptional in that way. He was a special guy for many many people at Elkay. I, along with many others, respected him greatly for many reasons; a true gentleman with great humility and great character. It was never about him, but rather about the people he served. He loved them and cared for them in very special ways .. and they loved him! I remember especially the profound respect the people of the Savanna and Lanark plants, whom I had frequent contact with, had for him. He earned their respect through his deep respect for them. Much the same was true of his fellow Officers and the entire management team that worked for him, or with him, over the years. He was bright, insightful, knowledgeable, articulate, and had unfailing, impeccable, integrity .. always striving for the best outcomes for the people and the Company he loved! Yes, we loved his humor and his company for it was, even in stressful times, calming and reassuring, and most enjoyable. Among my fondest memories of my time at Elkay was my time with him! He made all our lives just a little bit richer, more enjoyable, and more fulfilling! His achievements at Elkay were great and many, but none were more important than the leadership example he set for his fellow leaders. His passing marks a sad milestone in my life, and that of many, but I will always be thankful for my time with him .. It was a great blessing! He can now be again with the woman he loved so very much. God Bless you Dennis. A job well done .. worthy and faithful servant!

Worked with Gerry until I retired in 2012. I did the scoreboard for him when he coached Freshmen B-Ball. He was a sportsman and a gentleman as well as a role model for his players and students. He always had a kind word for everyone.

Although we didn’t know Julie personally, we feel we knew her through you, Greg, and what a wonderful woman she was. Her compassion and strength were evident at Inga’s funeral service – something no parent should have to endure. Her courage and deep faith as she addressed her health issues were an inspiration to anyone who knew her or knew her through you. Your commitment to, and support of each other was a beautiful thing and will continue, as you and Josiah know she is with Inga now...and also with you. We know you will find strength in that knowledge as you and Josiah work through this very difficult time. Please know that we are here for you, whatever and whenever. God bless you all.

Julie and Greg were my fast friends during many ups and downs...grad school struggles, romances, graduation, career choices, prolonged pregnancy bed rest, the birth of my son, and many more...though family, work life, and eventually a move made our connections less frequent, I will hold many fond memories of Julie in my heart - all the coffee chats in the morning and evening dinners. Julie was a warm, passionate, and loving woman.

Seeing you with my Mum your bossy older sister was great . I hope now that you are both free from the pains and stresses of this life if that you can embrace each other and have another giggle over things.

Your eyes shined bright at their mention with a grin from ear to ear. We’ve had nice talks about the Cubs, though these days I don’t think you were so happy with them.

I have just found out about the passing of Sammy. I’m shocked and heartbroken. He was so wonderful in so many ways. I will miss him and he will always be in my thoughts and prayers. Sammy was a great and loyal friend for so many years! He had that old-school mentality And was always in a good mood and always smiling like he never had a care in the world it has everything in control. He made you feel safe and protected. He was generous and always a giver. I cherished the stories he would tell me about my father (Dominick) who died in 1966 that were told to him by his father. I loved that we had that connection. He lived his life to the fullest and I think anyone that was fortunate enough to be in his life or to be loved by him was very lucky indeed.

I grew up two doors down from the Naughton family and have nothing but fond memories of them all. Luke, Terry and Mark and I would gather kids in the neighborhood and play football, basketball, baseball, and all sorts of other sports and games. They were not only my friends but also just like brothers to me. As we got older, Terry started a 16" softball team called the Sea Pirates and asked me to play on the team. It was the start of a lot of fun years playing softball and going out after for a few beers with the boys. Terry always had a terrific sense of humor and was also always just a really nice guy. I know he suffered quite a bit with his Parkinson's battle but his friends and family were there for him every step of the way because Terry was such a great guy and always kept that great sense of humor. My condolences to the entire Naughton family! I know you are a very tight group and saddened by the loss of Terry. While he will be missed for sure, Terry is now with his brother Luke and his mom and dad in heaven and I am very happy for that. I am sorry that I was unable to be there with you this weekend for the celebration of Terry's life but please be assured that he and your ire family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

For me Sue was a kaleidoscope of opposing qualities blended in to a one of a kind delight. She was pragmatic and idealistic, earthy and airy, responsible and playful. Feet firmly on the ground preparing nourishing meals and whimsically creative making beaded jewelry, leather works for craft fairs, and capturing the essence of people through her portraiture. I have her oil pastel “Owl in a Cactus” still hanging in pride of place in my entry that she gifted to her brother Jim and I more than 40 years ago. Sue was a larger than life person for me. I admired her and wanted to be her at times. She was a significant part of my journey to find myself and be happy with who I am just by being so wholly herself. Sue created many things that added beauty and interest to the world but she herself was not materialistic. Sue was Mother Earth, looking after other people, caring deeply about the environment from way way back, like 52 years ago when I first met her, and caring about her fellow earthlings all while having fun. She contributed so much to the lives around her but I have no doubt she considered her greatest contributions to be Marie and Matthew. I regret that I have never met Matthew, my loss I’m sure. The memory I hold most dear is a spring day spent with 23 year old Sue, 4 year old Marie, and my 15 month old son Tobias: I was about 20. It was a gorgeous, breezy, sunny, soft Detroit day with empty lots filled with pink and white flowers and dandelions. We were walking from a craft shop near 12th and Canfield and stopped in a field overrun with dandelions to rest. Sue had made fresh squeezed lemonade sweetened with honey and flavored with crushed mint leaves. So refreshing! Birds singing, bees buzzing and butterflies floating. We all played in that field and made dandelion chains and enjoyed each other and the day. We were young and joyful with a lifetime of possibilities ahead of us! We took different routes but Sue and I did both find that road of happy destiny. I think of Sue now as an earthy, concrete yet lighter than air whimsical creative woman. A light filled being now lifted in to a spiritual world where that fresh, sweet smelling sun flooded day is forever. My life has been richer for having known Sue Schmittroth. My love and heartfelt condolences go out to all the Schmittroths, John, Steve, Teresa, Marie, Mathew and Tobias, an honorary Schmittroth, for this profound d loss.

Every time I hear those oldies, but goodies, from the 60's, I will raise my hands up to you!! Thank you for all the memories, you will be forever in my heart, until we meet again.XO

Our heartfelt sympathies to the entire family on the loss of Mom. She had a zest for life and a heart of gold. When my Dad passed, she was one of the last people to speak with him and she felt so privileged to have done so. He adored her!!!!! I'm sure there was a long line of loved ones waiting for her to plan a party when she reached the heavens! I know he was there saving her a seat and waiting for a song. Keep her memory alive in all your hearts.

Oh no Stacey, I am heartbroken to hear of your passing. We lost touch after our old boy Elvis passed away. You took such wonderful care of him for 16 years and no other groomer ever came close to your standards. Your ability to work with a dog’s energy not to mention give a fabulous haircut was astonishing! We finally healed and rescued another pup who is in desperate need of some Stacey love but alas, you are gone. So sad you had to go. So many regrets at my end of not staying in touch, especially because we were both fae Scotland! Now you soar above the hills and glens, may you be at peace always.❤️ With deepest condolences to Stacey’s family.

Mothers play such an important and valuable role in the family arrangement. Even after they fall asleep in death, their impact and influence on our lives remains. No mother is perfect, but it is a blessing to have had one who was loving and devoted to her family. Life is a very precious gift from our Creator and we were created with the desire to enjoy it with our loved ones forever (Eccl. 3:11). Our Heavenly Father wants that for his children and will soon make that possible under the Kingdom rulership of his son, Jesus Christ. (Matthew 6:9,10; Ps. 37:10, 11, 29) Until then, may pleasant memories of happy times with your mother (and grandmother) gradually supersede the present sadness in your hearts and give you comfort and hope. Sincere condolences to your entire family.

While words fail to capture the pain of losing grandma, we find comfort in the many memories we made with her throughout the years. Grandma was very special, it was always evident how she loved and cherished her family. She enjoyed giving gifts in any way she could. We find comfort in Hebrews 6:19 “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, both sure and firm.” Just as an anchor keeps a ship steady during a storm, the sure hope of a reward from God can reduce anxiety and help us to maintain emotional and mental stability. Hope can also strengthen us to endure hardships like this one. I hope we can see grandma again and she’s young and healthy.

This endearing soul like someone said did have a ‘strong presence’ her children were examples of that by their care and love shown to her ! Marie was tickled when she felt that love ! I never met her but heard her many times talking to Denise and her expressions of gratitude for her wonderful family and the love Jehovah God had given to her! Marie’s expression of Faith was heard thru her genuine prayers and how that delighted Denise. So now we look forward to that grand hope of the Resurrection and growing young with her .

She may not have always remembered all the things that you and your family did for her but Jehovah does.

My Thoughts on Marie - Mom, Grandma, Great grandma She really was a remarkable woman. Despite her own insecurities and anxieties, she managed to find joy in her life. Much of her joy came from taking care of her husband and children. She delighted in making family and friends happy through her special meals, outdoor barbecues, family vacations, elaborate parties, special dinners and holiday traditions. In her later years she sought out reassurance that she was a good mom, expressing many regrets for some of her past actions. The remarkable thing Is she used those regrets to motivate her to make positive changes. She wanted to be a wonderful grandma and great grandma, and found much joy in spending time with them and giving them gifts whenever she saw them. You could see that Joy reflected in her smile, a smile that lit up her whole face and endeared her to many. Also remarkable was her desire to get to know her heavenly father in her later years. She often said in her prayers, how grateful she was for the wonderful life that she was given, and how she loved Jehovah God and appreciated greatly the love of her family. She diligently studied Galatians 5:22,23 - “On the other hand, the fruitage of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, mildness, self-control..”. She carried around a piece of paper with these qualities written down, and worked hard to apply these in her life. This resulted in her becoming beloved by the caregivers at Sunrise and enabled her to develop many friendships there prior to the pandemic. And she was able to maintain her joy throughout that isolation time, showing great patience and finding much joy in the porch visits with her family. She found comfort in the hope of the resurrection, looking forward to being reunited with all those that she has lost in death. She really really loved Life, and had confidence that her God would awaken her from sleep, just as Jesus awakened Lazarus. To know that her last thoughts were that of hope, not despair, brings me much joy and comfort. I pray it does the same for you.

My husband “Mike” and I have been parishioners at SMOW for 45 years so we have known Father “Don” for many years. For Mike father Don became the go to “confessor” on Saturday before Mass from the start. After mass they would linger and chat they would become almost “Buddies”. They had a lot in common-same age, dry sense of humor and interests. These last years they shared illnesses had to get used to not being as physically active using a cane a walker and some serious illnesses and setbacks. But they both would recover often through sheer determination and get back to doing what their interests and purposes was. For Father Don it was his parishioners and for my husband Mike it was family. Today these two wonderful men are again sharing similarities - God called both of them Home on the same day JULY 16 2021.

George and Shary were my host family when I studied at Saginaw Valley University. Both of them are very kind to me and treated as one of their family. I am very glad to meet them when I was studying in the United State. As I remember, George is a person who is very kind and has a soft heart. He always very patiently explained many things to me even I was not very good with English at that time. Moreover, he is always very enthusiastic to help me out if I confront any difficulties. I remember once I was struggled to write a paper, the first philosophical article in my life. He tried to give me some key points and guide me how to write. Even it was late at night, he told me he would not go to bed until I finish the paper. George always smile and use soft tone to talk. On the other hand, his singing left a deep impression on me. The first time I heard he sings in the church; I was surprise that he had such beautiful and deep voice. The way he sings just like a mid-bass in an orchestra. Suddenly, so many memories occurred in my mind. George, I miss you. Wish you find the peace in the heaven.

Dear Janet, Colleen, Sean, and Caragh…and Peggy, John, and Patty, I was saddened to learn at Jack’s Visitation that Tim had died in June of 2020. As the Director of Alumni Relations Emeritus at Saint Viator High School, I offer you the sympathy and prayers of the Saint Viator/Sacred Heart of Mary community, as well as my own. Know that our hearts go out to you as you deal with Tim’s death…and now Jack’s…and move through your journey of grief. You are in our prayers as you continue to share the stories, laugh and cry, and find ways to celebrate Tim’s life and the love he shared with you and so many others. As I read the obituary notice for this “beloved husband,” “proud father,” “loving son,” “dear brother,” and “loving nephew, cousin and friend to many,” I thought of the reading from the Book of Sirach used at Jack’s Mass. This is one of those times we can say: “like father, like son.” Let us praise a special man, faithful to his family and friends, strong in his love. At peace in his heart and his world, he has left us his good name, and we recount his life of praiseworthy deeds. A generous man his good works will never be forgotten. Among his family and friends remains a rich inheritance born of him…. His name lives on from generation to generation. We gather to sing his praises. We proclaim his wisdom and love of life all our days. We want you to know that Saint Viator will remember Tim and celebrate the fact that Tim continues to be a member of our community. In October we will send you information about our annual Alumni Memorial Mass, which will be celebrated on Sunday, November 7, in the Alumni Memorial Chapel at Saint Viator. In late October a small plaque with Tim’s name will be placed on our wall in the chapel along with the names of other deceased alumni from Saint Viator and Sacred Heart of Mary. Also, Tim’s name will be listed in the "In Memoriam" section of the fall issue of our news magazine, A Lion for Life. May you be comforted by the fact that death cannot take away the love, the memories, the faith! May the knowledge that Tim lives on in your goodness give you peace and hope! Take care and God bless you with those gifts you most need! Judith Judith Wampach Amberg Saint Viator High School Director of Alumni Relations Emeritus

My sincere condolences to Jill’s family. I have known Jill for many years as a fellow member of the Central Province Dominican Laity. She served us in many roles in the Provincial Council over the years. She served as Provincial President any years ago and continued after her term ended to take an active part in Council affairs over the years as, variously, Inter-Provincial (regional) Delegate, Recording Secretary, Co-Promoter of Preaching, a Provincial delegation member at the Congress for the Mission of the Order at the Angelicum in Rome, and most recently as Archivist and our presence in her role as board member of the McGreal Center. Her competence, meticulous attention to detail, wit, charm, warmth and faithfulness will remain a constant memory and model for those of us who were her sisters and brothers in St. Dominic.

I knew Jill for 33 years. I was one of the first hires in 1988 for the Communication Department at DePaul University that Jill helped to create. A great many of us have found work at DePaul in the years that followed because of Jill's great skill and vision in helping to create the department and in building its future as one of the great colleges in the country. That is quite a lasting legacy. Jill was a wonderful sister and aunt and loved her family. She fought the good fight against an autoimmune disease with great fortitude and equanimity. It is a wonderful example of courage under pressure. She is a heroine of the Catholic Church. Jill always wore a ring to show her devotion to the church and its teaching. Jill, you leave us triumpantly after an enduring record of service that moth and rust will never corrupt. You now enter into your Father's home with great gladness.

Instead, she went to the hospital ... Yes we freaked out a little at first for sure! But Aunt Jeanne and Uncle George sat in the center of the room and opened all the presents, we played a few games, and had lunch. AND on the way home, we were thrilled to go meet Christopher!

There are some people who come into our lives who make a special place in your heart. They have the love, joy and essence of God's presence deeply & humbly in their being ... touching everyone they meet. Bill was that man. He made us smile and in our Holy Family choir, he became our favorite brother who teased and was affectionately teased back as only a loving family do. He cared for his friends, family & their needs... offering prayers were second nature & sincerely offered ... that you knew he was not ashamed of his faith or his tears. Bill personally blessed my family in singing for my father's memorial Mass and he did this for many families for 20 some years in our Ressurection Choir. He claimed he wasn't a great singer, but our souls knew otherwise. So our hearts are broken, yet we celebrate knowing him and confident he is home with our Lord and His Blessed Mother Mary. There will be another saint to greet us one day, which softens this sadness today. I'm certain "Well done, good & faithful servant" rang through the heavens on June 19 2021. God bless Sandy, his family & all of us in the days to come.

My sisters & I first met Uncle Angelo, Aunt Peg & the Polvere clan during our Summer 1976 cross-country visit to see our grandparents in Boston. For the next 40+ years, I was always amazed at Uncle Angelo’s feisty intellect, passionate personality, creative artistry, and enduring love for his family.

I knew Mr. Neckermann my entire life. As an adolescent, I’ll never forget how he always stood behind us despite all the referees, teachers and sometimes the police trying to convince him otherwise. From the study breaks in high school to get ice cream, to the Chinese food on New Year’s for bowl games, I was lucky to have Mr. Neckermann as part of my childhood. As an adult and parent, Mr. Neckermann’s life reminded me of the true passion to work, while encouraging your own kids to find the same.

And how can the entire class of 2001 forget how he shaved half of his head for our graduation ceremony? Hahaha! He was charismatic jokester, and we both shared a deep love for our beloved city. It was also always cool running into him at different bars in Lincoln Park in our post high school and college years. You’ll be missed very much by everyone, Sean.

Well recently I realized everybody called him John and I still called him Ian so I thought maybe he wants to be called John so I called him John. He said so what I’m John now what happened to Ian.

The first time I met Dave was at a Green family Christmas Eve at the Clements’ home. He & Ethel were both great friends from the very beginning, and I always enjoyed being around them at our many Texas Green events. He was always kind & loving & always had a great story or a great joke. He always felt more Ike a brother to both John & myself, and we always looked forward to seeing him again. He treated everyone with respect & love, and I remember how much he & Grandpa Bob Green loved their Chicago sports teams! He had great admiration for all the Texas Greens and was so nurturing & pastoral at the loss of Grandpa & Judi. It’s not hard to believe he got his pastor’s license when Adam & Leesa were getting married. From then on, he was pastor Dave. That’s how I’ll always remember him. And how I’ll miss him. He was one of the greats!

I remember lots of adventures when visiting The Green family in their home in Chicago. The four cousins, my sister Donna, myself and David and brother Danny were close in age and we looked forward to visits to Chicago where my great-grandmother lived with them and times Uncle Al took us all out to their favorite restaurant always telling lots of fun stories about living in Chicago. Aunt Hilda was caring and connected to all the relatives in Carmi and especially close to her little sister, my mom. It was very comforting when David and Ethel attended my mom’s memorial service and we got to spend a little time with them. They obviously were a very devoted couple and fun to be around. David’s kindness really stood out and we could tell he was a caring person. Our thoughts go out to Ethel and hope she will be comforted by her memories and those who loved David.

Dave was an amazing gentlemen, and I use that term intentionally. He was invested in every conversation that he had with someone and truly cared about people. He greeted the world with his bright smile and kind eyes, that sometimes sparkled with his playfully mischievous twinkle, and an ever-present grace that made those around him instantly comfortable. I’ll miss his laugh, his playfulness, his attention to detail in the kitchen, his great storytelling ability and his love for those he cared about. I never saw him without a smile on his face or with thoughtful approach to any situation he was in….and I’ll miss that a lot, he was one of a kind and the world is worse off without him here.

Ms. Meyer & Me My earliest memory of you was at the age of 7 years old, when my mother and i would meet you downtown for lunch on days when she brought me to work with her. You would always have a package of gummy bears hidden away for me in your bag. I remember you at many of our family event through the years, (holidays, birthdays, graduations). You were always there with that big beautiful smile of yours. In recent years my family and I did what we could to help you navigate your way through the "Senior Citizen" years. i would always call you and say "This is your well-being check or I'm calling to check on the Elderly." You got such a laugh out of that, and we would be on the phone laughing for extended periods of time after I said those words. We would usually be talking about the pandemic, and all the bad news my mother would share with you after watching too much nightly news. You would refer to it as the "Doom and Gloom." You were such an important part of my daily life that I can't believe you're no longer with us. But I know you are in the loving arms of our Lord, and that your loving family welcomed you and your brother with open arms as you entered heaven's gates. i would like to thank you for being our family's Angel here on earth. It was an absolute pleasure to know you and to spend time in your presence. No one will ever fill your shoes, but it brings me great peace to know you're in heaven now looking down on us, and blessing us from above. You no longer need me to check on your well-being because you are now in eternal bliss with our Lord. Rest In Peace My Sweet Friend. You have been reborn and are young again. You will always be one of my favorites and Merle's and Conor's too.

When a good soul passes on, there remains a hole in the fabric of the lives of many. Bob was one of these. For those whose lives he touched, it seemed like he would always be there. How else could we imagine things. Bob or as I knew him, Bobby, was always someone who appeared larger than life, not just in stature, but in his choices and in his doings. He served as my confirmation sponsor in our church. With achievements in both football and track, he was famous at our high school (De Paul Academy). He volunteered to fight our generation’s war, serving in Vietnam. Upon return from service, he married a young woman well received by our family and chose a career considered prestigious in our circles. From time to time his career exploits inspired awe. Ultimately, he served at the 24th District - Rodgers Park as a Lieutenant. My cousin was in charge of the police in the neighborhood where I grew-up! I was proud and bragged about him often. I saw his life from a distance. Perhaps my view was a touch unidimensional. However, those close to him got to see a complete human being. I know from the results I have seen and the discussions that I have had with people who knew and worked with him that their experiences were richer than mine. I also know he was a good man with a good soul. His close family lost a loved one and a champion. Other’s of us lost a hero. When my tears well-up at Bobby’s passing I want to remember Theodore Seuss Geisel’s words: “Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.” Bobby thank you for sharing your life with us and for positively influencing each of ours. Betty, Debbie, Michael, Michael, Carrie, Nicholas, Josh, Cookie, Jim, Pat and Ernie thank you for sharing Bobby, your love, with all of us. Know we share your loss.

Oh my dear friend, I will miss you so much! You were such a treasured childhood friend and the memories we shared will always be fondly remembered. The three of us (you, me and Laurie T) were always together each and every day of our childhood hanging out in the park and at each of our houses. The Skokie gang was so blessed to have each other throughout our younger years. Rest In Peace my dear friend. You will always be loved as I carry you in my heart forever!

Jorge, Mario, and Erika. Words cannot express the depths of sorrow we feel for you. Our cousin Diana has entered into eternal rest and is now with her parents, and the Lord. Though our time with her was brief, she left an indelible mark on everyone she met. We will miss her big smile. When our family gathers to make pasteles for Christmas, we will be reminded of how she made a trip to Boston to be with us and make them. With or deepest sympathies and love.

Erika, Mario y Jorge les mando un abrazo y pido porque pronto se recuperen de tan grande perdida. Duele porque se apago una luz que brillaba como hija, esposa, hermana, amiga y mamá. Esa luz que hoy se apaga se va a encender en el cielo como estrella que los cuidara a partir de hoy y para siempre. Es difícil para nosotros despedir a un familiar que a pesar de la distancia fue querida por todos nosotros. Un abrazo a Luis, Adrián, Tío Juan y familias.

Dearest Carmen…Sunny…Nely… All of your children… Grandchildren… Spouses… And all of Onelia’s Loved Ones: Throughout the years and decades, her graceful beauty lingered, evident on her face, especially when she smiled. Underneath the surface radiated a deeper and quite robust loveliness, for there resided a most extraordinary heart filled with empathy, love, and compassion for everyone she met. Her life touched so many, and her words and example instructed us, too. We all secretly wished to be adopted by her to receive the affection, understanding, and blessings she poured into her children and her grandchildren so unconditionally. Onelia was a remarkable lady, a genuine woman of substance, a strong human being, and an unforgettable personality. She was also an angel on earth, not just to her family, to her patients, to her young students, to her colleagues, neighbors, and friends, but to anyone whose life she touched. Her joy for life as evidenced by her dancing at every wedding and celebration, her never-ending faith in God as reflected in her optimism and resiliency, and her connection to the divine as heard in her uninhibited, emphatic laughter are things we shall always remember and treasure. May God welcome Onelia into His Kingdom without end where she will live in peace with joy and love eternally. And may God embrace her family and loved ones here on earth with His Blessings, Love, Care, and Protection. May all your hearts begin to heal, finding solace and happiness in joy-filled memories to replace the current heartbreak and tears. All our love always, Marianela & Douglas and the Peterson Family.
