Uncle Frank was the backbone of the family. He was always willing to help in so many ways. I will miss the many conversations I had with him about a project I would be working on my home or office. He was the family historian and if you wanted to know anything about our ancestors from either Cres or Budapest he was the one to talk to. He had a big impact in my life and I will miss him. Rest in peace.

Though I haven't seen her for over 10 years, I felt very close to Rose. She was (is) my friend. I enjoyed talking to her a few times on the phone in the last few years. We were encouraging to each other. I wish her peace and her wonderful family healing. Thank You for your love Rose.

As I stood before the community of people today sharing my experiences with Mom, I could barely get through my tears. My message was about FRIENDS. I read a quote about friends who may part ways, but when they resume, it is like they never parted. My mom and I had a kind of friendship that kept us connected through our love and also many things we shared..Shopping, singing, dogs, arts, joking, philosophy and psychology, and so many things. We had some periods of little contact and for that I wish I could go back in time and change it. I came to a point when I moved to Florida, and with my husband's help and support began a new chapter with her. I resumed. Sharing my life with her on a deeper level. I drove her around the bay in a boat and watched the way she enjoyed the sun and wind on her face. I played tennis for her as she watched in her white outfit. I spent new years with her in our beach home. As time went went by I found ways to share whether it was having people send long distance reiki or chant or pray for her. I gave her tools to use for occupational therapy. I fed her. I held her. I would just be... I am still connected with her, and the last time I saw her I said good bye and held my hand out to her as she smiled. That is the way I will remember.

Joe and i worked together on developing thermal Imaging applications. His voice was a very familiar voice on the phone and i enjoyed working with him as well as seeing him on his occasional work trips up here to Michigan to see us. The news of his passing was a shock, and i am sad that i did not get the chance to say goodbye. i will miss working with him and hearing his voice on the phone. Joe, may the Lord, give you rest in a place of brightness, a place of refreshment, a place of repose, where all sickness, sighing, and sorrow have fled away. Memory Eternal.

Just dropping by to let you know that you are not forgotten. I recently received from photos from a friend from Southern Maryland and it prompted me to reflect on the past in our first townhouse. Great memories and I wanted everyone to know that you were so happy and smiling in every picture. You are missed by everyone.

 

Matthew Travis II posted on 10/11/17

My memory of Twila, Miss Marsh, is always that of someone with a smile, and someone with a caring heart. One of the most selfless people I have come to know, Munster High School could not have asked for a better member on their faculty, and I could not have asked for a better mentor for guidance throughout my four years as a student there, nor could I have asked for a better friend. She was a wonderful woman, who will be dearly missed. My deepest Condolences and Sympathies to the Marsh family, and to all who knew this wonderful lady. In my thoughts and prayers, -and God bless.

 

Douglas F. Bolda (son) posted on 10/9/17

At the wake people kept coming up to me and saying how proud my father was of me and my siblings. That got me thinking about how proud I am of my father and that is what I want to tell you about today. As many if not all of you can relate to as a small child my dad was Superman. He was a big, burly, loveable guy, an athlete, a soldier, and he was my dad, he was my hero. I learned of his humble beginnings. How he lost his father at age 7. How his mother who he loved dearly raised the 14 children of which he was the lucky number 13th and of which until a few days ago he was the last survivor. How he had to leave school to work to help support the family. I remember how hard he worked from his first job in a bakery where he was overworked and underpaid. He later worked in concrete and then at the dairy. And later to make ends meet for our family, he took other jobs including putting up aluminum siding and bartending. He always was a good provider. He was a good husband, a good father, and later a good grandfather and to many he was a good friend. I can still remember one night as relatively young child coming home late from some sort of family outing, perhaps visiting a relative. I pretended to be asleep in the car just so that I could feel his arms around me holding me carrying me into the house. I can still remember that night like it was yesterday and how good his strong arms felt around me and how secure I felt. He noticed when we got into the house that I was just faking, and he even said to my mom " He's not asleep. He is just faking" I imagine that he felt the bond that I felt with him at that moment and smiled his big as I did when I heard him say that. I remember my dad showing me how to play baseball and how to fish. One of my favorite things to do with my dad was to watch baseball games. He knew so much about baseball. He could tell you in infinite detail every aspect of what was going on in the game. One of the highlights of my life was being able to watch essentially the whole play-offs and the World Series with him last year and to see him enjoy his Cubs finally winning a World Series. I learned so much from him and not just baseball. Yes, I looked up to my dad, and as I got older I recognized more and more how my dad interacted with people. How loved he was by everyone. His great sense of humor, and how other people looked up to him for leadership and guidance. Even from those humble beginnings he rose to become the Teamsters Union president of Local 835. And probably for at least 45 years he was the sergeant at arms and was the driving force behind the American Legion Honor Guard. He officiated I'm sure thousands of those ceremonies for veterans and their families like the ceremony that was performed by the American Legion Honor Guard at the funeral home for him last night. That was a very emotional moment for me knowing how proud he was to do that for the veterans and their families. I have always aspired to be like my father to be respected and the leader and the one whom others turn to for guidance. And so, Dad I say to do today that you are still my hero and that I will greatly miss you as will the many others whose lives you have touched.

Kip Weissman posted on 9/29/17

Skip may have been the most disagreeable man I ever met. In other words, no matter what you said, he always seemed to disagree. And Skip had a very sharp mind and was always able to marshal formidable arguments to support his position--Even when you suspected that he might not even believe it himself…. Skip was also one of the most caring, sensitive people I ever met. If someone was in trouble – especially if he/she were an underdog – Skip was always the first to recognize it and lend a hand. Just as long as no one would find out about it and ruin his image…. I met Skip in the 1980s as a lawyer for the Bank. Since that time, I have seen him pass up numerous opportunities to earn large sums of money in order to protect his customers, community and staff. I have also seen him make extraordinary efforts to protect people who were going down a bad path. Just as long as no one would find out.… Skip could definitely be a pain; don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. But he was also an extremely intelligent, sensitive, caring and giving human being. His character and integrity were unimpeachable. Skip was a rebel, but only for just causes. Skip was unique and irreplaceable. Skip impacted a lot of lives and the world is a poorer place without him. But don’t tell anybody; he wouldn’t want you to ruin his reputation….

I am so very sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one in death is such a painful thing to experience. Please be comforted by the promises of our Grand Creator Almighty God. The promise made by Almighty God through his enthroned king Jesus Christ is all of those in God's memory will soon hear Jesus voice and live again. What a loving provision put in place by the God of all comfort so we can have the assured hope of seeing our dead loved ones live again one day. Meanwhile as I pray for that day to come I ask Almighty God to bless your family and give each of you the strength to endure this most trying time.

The best cousin you could ask for. My mentor as a young boy. My Godfather. He was always about family. Family was very important to "Buddy." He was at every family event no matter where it was. He and Patty were there. He opened up his house each summer to bring family together for a BBQ. He always had a kind word, quick wit and positive attitude. I will miss him tremendously. I have many great memories. Our prayers go out to Patty, Jason, Nicole and the Petrungaro family. God Bless You. --Jim and Elaine Muting

I still remember my first trip to the Midwest... Hammond, IN... Jane and I walked up the steps to the front door of that house on Tapper Avenue. We were greeted by Marcella and Bob. Marcella treated me like I was one of the family right from the outset. Marcella can now RIP... baking pies with heavenly crusts for all the Prendergast and Aubry family members "up there" to enjoy.

 

Jane (Prendergast) Arellano posted on 9/26/17

My dear Mother, Marcella, was a very good person who loved the four of us children very much. She was so dedicated to keeping our home a comfortable place where we grew up learning many things from her. She was definitely a mentor for me. I was able to prosper because she guided me into my future. I owe her so much gratitude and will truly miss her but I am so pleased that she has been reunited with our beloved father, Robert, who loved her so dearly. Rest in peace, dear Mother, knowing you taught us well to stand on our own.

All my love to you and your mom. -B

Mr. Kruzan was my favorite teacher. His class was so creative and he made his teaching relevant to our contemporary lives in the late 1960's. On a personal level, he was the first teacher, that saw me as a person, not just one of his many students. He was the first teacher that ever recognized and encouraged my creativity. He even told me there was a song that was written about me. I still remember it to this day. I just loved him. What an incredible teacher and special man. I know he will be deeply missed. My condolences to his husband and family.

Although our encounter was brief in this world, it was enough to know that your Dad was a kind, loving and honest man, a friend of man and truth. It is sad to hear of his death but we are certain that when it was time, God put his arms around him and lifted him to rest. Your Dad hasn’t traveled far.....he has just stepped inside God’s heavenly home.  His life on earth came to an end but he is claiming a great reward in heaven…..an everlasting peace together with his Creator. He left behind many good teachings and memories that will comfort you in the days to come. He also touched lives that perhaps he wasn’t even aware of but that made a difference.  When we think of the times that we were able to share with him it will always be with  deep respect and admiration. Please accept our deepest condolences and we pray that God grant you the strength that you need during your time of sorrow

Aunt Linda was a remarkable woman with-with a heart as big as the Indiana sky. She was absolutely a family woman who adored her husband, children and grandchildren. Her sister Diane (my adopted mother) looked up to Linda in many ways. I remember one hot summer day hearing a mini-scooter traveling down the street. I looked out the window to see who it was….and behold…..it was Aunt Linda scooting along. I remember thinking, “She’s the coolest Aunt ever!” She engineered the most fun Christmas parties. Her handmade Christmas cookies were so good; she probably could have sold them at Macy’s! Yes, they were that tasty! While her death is truly sad…it isn’t the end. She will live on in our hearts and we will all join her after our journey in this life is over. May god bless your soul. Love your nephew, Frankie

My deepest condolences to Mr. Stookeys' loved ones! I was a student of his in the 80's. His love for music and the arts touched me and others. We visited Illinios' Governors (Jim Thompson) mansion for a Spring choral and band event. It was a highlight for him! Mr. Stookeys' enthusiasm was contagious, I've never forgotten his pale spring tuxedos and directorial theatrics! His memory warms my heart!❤️ RIP

By far my favorite teacher ever! Even though he used my name in English class all the time! We had a blast with him doing "Sing for Spring", rifles, and choir. Dedicated to a fault! My prayers are with you all!

Mr Stookey was a great man and a wonderful teacher. His presence in the classroom was heartfelt and the one thing I'm going to miss most of all is he made us feel like his children.

I remember the day I wrangled up my twin brother and four other boys to tryout for the 7th-8th grade choir. "There are no boys in choir," I remember being told by several. All of us made it, and all of us benefited tremendously from it. Between your vocal coaching, sharing your love of music and all things artsy, and your tutelage about life stuff when we were in our formative years, you were more than just a middle school teacher to us. You were a role model, a father figure, and a huge blessing to us in our adolescence. Thanks for so many cool memories, Mr. Stookey. I truly appreciate all that you did while leading your purpose-filled life. RIH, my good man.

I attended Memorial Jr. High and graduated in 98 and Mr. Stookey was my English teacher and also my choir director. He was amazing at what he did and I loved learning more about music through him. He had such a great impact on my life and he made going to school everyday worth it. I'll always remember and cherish the time our choir went on tour and went to see the falls in Canada. He was not only a teacher but he was all of our friends and he's going to be missed dearly! Thank you for all the wonderful memories and may you rest in peace

I am so sorry to read this. I also was a classmate from the same graduating class from MHS 1974. I remember her as being a very nice, soft spoken person with red hair and big brown eyes. As a matter of fact, she was voted "prettiest eyes" in the class. Most importantly, she will be remembered as being very kind. Her family and friends have my sympathy. I have not seen her in years but I remember clearly.

From kindergarten to 8th grade you were always my partner in crime. I have memories with you from each year at St. Thomas More and you will always be such a huge part of my childhood. We played volleyball, we had sleepovers, we cooked food, took pictures, went to political events that we had no idea were about. I will never forget our girlscouts trip to Camp Tecumseh and our crazy camp memories. You were always there for me and I could always walk over to your house and say hi and we rode the bus to and from school together almost everyday our last few years of grade school. Our memories are forever in my heart and so are you and your family, I miss you so much and will see you again one day my friend. Rest easy beautiful angel.

Ross and I were childhood friends as we lived right down the road from each other and our families were very close. My dad, Harry Hameister, was one of Ross's sponsors and his mom, Wilma, was one of mine. I remember so many gatherings with our families, picnics, birthdays, holidays, and card parties. Ross and I would ride our bikes to meet and play together when we were very young. I am so sorry to hear of his passing and send my deepest condolences to his family. He was such a dear person and friend. Eventhough our lives sent us in different directions, he will be missed. Prayers for comfort for all.

I so appreciate the above and beyond care my family received as his patients. Dr. Morris will be missed by all. May he rest in peace.

Condolences to the Morris family. Dr. Morris was the most exemplary father figure I've ever encountered. He was the consummate professional as our family pediatrician. Always there and available no matter what the crisis, and what your age. He was always there, and as a child you always hoped he was there, and you didnt have to see another physician. Not that the others were bad, but Dr. Morris was the best. I also saw him a outside the Clinic, as a father and fan/support to Hal/Bobby, and was just as personable and caring outside the office. Prayers to the Morris family as they mourn the loss of a great man. I also have the unique opportunity to work with Bobby at Morris Baseball. Every time I see Bobby working with kids to make them better, I can't help see/hear Dr. Morris voice. Dr. Morris is definitely one the role models in my life that I strive to emulate as a teacher / coach. Thank You Dr. Morris and your good work and influence will continue to live on with those thousands you effected. Rest in Peace. To live in the hearts of others is never to die.

 

Vernon and JoAnn Andreshak posted on 6/11/17

Our children; Michael, Brian, and Laura are blessed to have had Dr. Morris as their Pediatrician. His compassion was evident when Brian needed surgery as a six month old. Dr Morris's caring and concern extened to every part of their lives including warning the boys not to ride the big wheels in the street. I remember him being quick to laugh at Laura's "piece of the moon" response to the eye test. Dr.Morris's caring and compassion stands as an example to all of us.

Teresa Marie Adelaide Kotso I love you more than words can describe and you mean more to me than anything in the world. You are my best friend and my soul mate. I have never met a more beautiful soul or someone with a bigger heart than you. Things weren't easy for you but that didn't stop you from giving unconditional love and care towards others. You inspire me everyday and I know you're watching down on all of us from heaven. You loved Beyoncé as much as me and Queen Bey said it best "Heaven couldn't wait for you, so go on go home" you were angel on earth and I know you're an angel in heaven right where you belong. You are so sweet and wonderful but I guess you were just too good for this world. You were gone too soon and I wish I could've had more time with you we had so much planned and we were going to see the world together but sometimes things don't turn out how we imagine. I'll miss you forever but I know I'll see you again soon. I love you always and you will live on everyday in my heart. Thank you for everything my queen and my love. All my love, Molly

Even now --I turn to my children and give advice to them regarding their children and his voice resonates in my mind. He was everything a doctor should be- a friend, mentor, confidant. I will always remember the impact he had on my life as a young mother and the lives of my children. God bless this man

Our deepest condolences to the family of Dr Morris! He was a wise doctor with the kindest heart. He was instrumental in saving the life of my son who is now 31 years old. By God's design Dr Morris was on call the day our son got sick and Dr Morris immediately called the doctors in Chicago for advice. None of us knew it at the time but my son had an AVM (bleeding in the brain) and the actions of this humble pediatrician were instrumental in saving our sons life. Once my son was finally home months later he was a star in the great doctors office and everyone knew him. RIP Dr Morris...you're truly loved by our family ❤

I have a sad spot today in my heart in learning Dr.Morris has passed. He was simply the best. My husband and I will never forget his kindness and patience. My son had reflux and couldn't keep formula down. Dr. Had me calling him at 7:00 a.m. everyday for 2 weeks. Letting him know how my baby did the day before. Not many doctors would take this time. Dr. Morris always seemed to calm me down when baby had me frazzled. He just had that way about him. I very sorry for your family's loss. He was a great man. Heaven has gained a one of a kind angel.

He made the experience of going to the doctor comfortable: a feat that is to be commended. And beyond that, he provided outstanding care to me and his other patients. I'll never forget his steady and kind demeanor, or those awesome plaid pants he always wore. God bless, and may he rest in peace.

Dr. Morris was the most caring, kind, and compassionate man. He treated his patients with such tenderness. Having a big family and two asthmatics that needed frequent visits, we saw 2 doctors.

I always felt I was being helped by a friend who was truly invested in me. Prayers for his family and friends at this time.

 

Michele (Maddox) DeGraff posted on 6/9/17

My condolences to Dr Morris's family. Thank you for all the time you sacrificed as a family as Dr Morris gave si freely to his patients and their parents. Dr Morris was my Dr for 32 of his 35 years. He was my brother and my Dr when we were little. He made the wait worth it. You knew that he would spend as much time with you as he did all the others. I would cry if I had to see any of the other Drs. As i turned an adult and had children of my own starting at age 19 he was no longer taking new patients. However he would take on siblings and children of those that were his patients. He was such a kind and compassionate man/Dr. From the calls early in the morning to the letters he would write on ones behalf. My son brought in a a baseball card and asked Dr Morris if Hal would sign it for him and he said sure next time I see him. The next time we came to see Dr Morris he had the autographed card. I cried when my last son was born because Dr Morris had just retired. No one was like Dr Morris. I cant even imagine the reception he received when he entered the pearly gates yesterday. Much gratitude and love Michele (Maddox) DeGraff and family.

The family of Gerald Gettig ,was very saddened on the death of Dr. Morris. His love of children and the care the care that he gave my seven children reflected in his true character of a man. He treated his patients as if they were his own family. He answered questions in an unhurried manner and would you to call him with an update of your child's condition. This man truly cared. It is so hard to find a doctor that even comes close to his compassion and sympathy for anyone who was I'll. He felt like a close friend. He gave every situation the utmost effort and never would condescend anyone even in the most simplest of questions. So easy to talk to in his gentle voice and kind approach. Never will find another doctor that compares. Rip loving soul you will be sorely missed. Sincerely and respectfully, Cheryl Gettig

Where do I begin ..many many years ago we had a new Pediatrician in town at that same time my daughter was born with a lung problem and no one knew what to do . Dr. Morris did because he had done his residency at the same Hospital that President Kennedy's baby had died from the same lung problem. He promised us he would do everything he could and she survived!!! I have always been grateful for that .....We went on to be a team as I became a Foster Parent to many sickly and abused children and he cared for all of them with great skill and much compassion!!! When he retired he told me that His lovely wife Margaret had sacrificed so many things for Him and his Practice it was now Her Time. Thank You Dr. Morris for being such a wonderful caring devoted Doctor and Human Being... I send my deepest sympathy to Margaret and Dr. Morris's Family and Friends...May God send you Peace and Comfort as you go through this Challenging Time!!!

The Earl Family, We have only known Tracy a few years. She was a beautiful lady who welcomed us into her home when my grandson Bryce was going to the school dances with her daughter Megan. That was the first time we met her and we instantly became friends. Her and her mother Gloria played bingo in the hall behind St. George church on Tues and Thurs nights. I would see them quite often there and boy were they 2 "Lucky Gals" I got to be like a 2nd grandma to her daughter Megan. What a sweet and beautiful girl . God took you away from your wonderful family way to soon. We will watch over Megan and keep her safe. It is said that when someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure. You Tracy Earl are a treasure that will always be in our hearts! You will never be forgotten

Nancy was always so caring of others, as far back as when we were 8 yrs old. I remember being at her house back in high school and learning the Simon & Garfunkel song "Sound of Silence", we always had such a good time. I can still picture her in that sweet bridesmaid dress and lace head-piece at my wedding. She loved her family very much and my thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this difficult time. She is at rest now and in our Lord's loving arms, where she can be happy again and without pain or suffering. I look forward to seeing her again one day. May God bless and keep you all in His care.

Fifty-three years of friendship: You understood my sense of humor throughout all these years by sharing your soft chuckle of approval, followed by a quick retort; you were a listener among talkers; you actually wanted to discuss matters of substance; you shared quiet thoughts, which cause me to share mine; and you made me a proud Godfather.  Thank you Ralph.  I still jealous of your hair.

Dear Barbara, Mary, Jamie, Julie and the entire Merlo Family. I was so very saddened to learn of your father's sudden passing. Jim was my "favorite" brother-in-law. However, the feeling of "favorite" was not mutual as he was always kidding me about my sister Anne being his "favorite" sister-in-law and that he liked " Anne BEST". Jim had a great sense of humor and loved joking around and laughing at his own comments. He was a joy to be around. I will always be grateful to Jim for his influence in my late husband's (Jan L. Silagi, DDS. MSD. aka Uncle Jan) decision to become a dentist. Barb, Jim and baby Barb would visit often when we were in El Paso, Texas, and Jim was in the Air Force stationed in Tucson, Arizona. My children, Steve (Silagi) and Holly (Silagi Clark) and I have the fondest memories of Uncle Jimmy and Aunt Barbara and the Merlo girl cousins visiting us in Galveston, Texas and El Paso, Texas and. all those frequent shopping trips to Mexico that Aunt Barbara made while visiting. We especially remember the motor home trip into Mexico and the trips to Ruidoso. New Mexico. Lot of memories and lots of laughs. Please know that you Dad will be greatly missed by our family. We loved your Mom and Dad and we love you and your families. May God Bless each of you and give you the strength to "BE STRONG" in this time of great sorrow. Love, Aunt Shirley and Ben (Asdell) Steven (Silagi) and Family Holly (Clark) and Family

 

Joseph J. Stankovich, Sr. posted on 5/9/17

All of us have lost one of the finest dental practitioners in Chicagoland. I remember his first office in the Calumet National Bank Building in downtown Hammond later moving to Munster and Chicago.

Recent Memory Prior to and when Jackie left to be in eternity, I had the pleasure of sharing memories with my son, Joe. He got to see his mother and me when we lived in Italy prior to when he was born, he got to see videos of how much we loved him when he was only a baby, he got to share in moments that he would never have been able to if not for the fact that his loving mother kept these videos for over 20 years tucked away in the basement. Although, there was a flood, the videos remained as a testament to the love that will always exist and never be absent from our hearts. These videos may not stand the test of time, but the memories that have been imprinted in my son's head and heart will be with him forever. Thanks, Jackie for keeping those videos and allowing us to all share in the joy you left for us.

Grandma was a very strong and independent women, but now she leaves a gap that can't be filled. She met her goal to reach heaven. All of her friends gathered around her casket to say their "goodbyes", as she left a shell of her body and her spirit roam free. Grandma our guardian angel will always protect us. Even if you can't see her you know that she's watching over you It's hard to have her absents. I know in the end we'll all meet her up there, but now we must remain on earth til' our time comes. I will miss you Grandma and I empathy to those who have sorrow from this sad event. And Grandma until we meet again you know I'll always love you.

I'm so thankful for the special bond that I had with my gramps and there will always be a spot in my heart that is empty with him no longer here. I already miss the sound of his voice and I'm reflecting on all of the times we sat and talked for hours at the lake in his garage or in his living room. No matter where I was with my grandpa my heart was full. While I may look back in sadness I also reflect on all of the great memories we have had together over the years which I will cherish forever. I inherited his love of the lake and every time I look out my window I will think of him knowing how blessed I am each and every day for all that he was and all that he taught me. Love you lots Gramps and I hope you are up there having an Old Style!

Hi, Diane: So sorry to hear about your loss of your father. I had to say goodbye on this Earth to my dad in 2002 and I still miss him every day. Every time I come across some new agronomic breakthroughs in soybeans or learn something new about companion crops (one of his favorite projects) I still think "I have to tell Dad about that."

We are so grateful for the presence of our dear Aunt Dorothy in our lives for so many years. She was a loving, compassionate sister to my mother, Anna Bubala Kelly, in her last years of life. She then continued to visit and take my sister, Dorothy Kelly, to lunch and various doctor's appointments for many years as well. I am sure Mother and Dorothy welcomed my Aunt to heaven with open arms and gratitude for her love and generosity to them. May God watch over and protect the family of her and Uncle Joe now and in the years to come. The Kelly family loves all of you and we are praying for you and your families. Your mother will always be remembered and prayed for as is your dad. God Bless, sincere sympathy, caring and prayers. Cousins Joanne, Dolores, Mary Kathleen, and Kathy, and all of our families.

On a very cold February evening in 2010 my wife, Barb, and I opened up our house to several guests. I had lied to my wife and told her to expect about 40 or so people at our house that night. I had ordered food for 75. We were celebrating the release of the book our son, Sam, had coauthored with our good friend, Stan Kalwasinski, "Blue Island's Raceway Park". Karen Kalwasinski had pulled me aside early in the evening and quietly told me how proud she was of Stan and how excited and happy he was to be part of this project. Karen was sincere. She was kind. She was gracious. She was caring. And she was generous. Over 150 people showed up that night to celebrate and the party went deep into the night. But the thing I remember the most, the best, the strongest was Karen's kind words that her exceptional husband was happy to be a part of a daydream project and make a make-believe idea become a reality. Thank you Karen! You will never be forgotten! God has taken one of the brightest gems from this earth! May you shine forever in His Company!

I met Joe when I first first hired into LTV steel in Spring 1996. Joe was my forman, and then mentor after I went salary. He went on to teach me a good deal and I have always appreciated that. Although I only knew Joe for a couple years, I could tell by the man that he had touched a lot of people's live in positive ways. I am very sorry for your loss.

Chuck was a great person, always with a smile on his face. He and my brother-in-law, Larry Farmer, who passed away very early in life, were the very best of friends, so that is when I met him and then Carol. I am glad I was able to see Chuck this past August when I was in town. He was all smiles and extremely happy. I will treasure that memory forever.

God swept you up into eternal Grace, but all too soon for those left to mourn. Please give my enduring love to Curt and carry it with you into eternity. I remember, the very most, your eyes full of intent when you found a passion. I recall it as early as middle school, when you found confidence and commitment in football. And wrestling benefitted from that same focused intent. You bring a smile to me, even as the sadness is so heavy. My condolences to your family and friends, especially so to Linda, whose efforts to benefit her family were so focused and continuous in the time I shared. Mothers should not have this visited upon them twice, the loss of a dear, dear son. May all the Angels, Saints, Holy men and Holy women rise to greet you and carry you into God's kingdom and eternal Grace. My heart aches for Linda, Carrie, Bob and Shellie.

My husband Mark and I have so many great memories of Kelly from both Newport, RI, and Canton, MA. From the softball team, to game night (dominoes!!!) to just hanging around with Mark, Doug, Theresa and me, he was a large part of our post-college development into adulthood. We will never forget his stories about Chicagoland or his Purdue everything. I will cherish the pictures I have of him with my oldest daughter, just after she was born. It was the last time that we saw him in person. Rest in peace, Kelly Ray.

Kelly worked in our engineering team at SwipeSense, where we work every day to prevent hospital-acquired infections. He made key contributions to our mobile installation application, that our staff use in getting new hospitals on-boarded with our technology. His engineering contributions are helping save lives every single day. You will be missed Kelly! Your code lives on.

 

Erin Meyer posted on 3/1/17

I am so sorry to hear of Kelly's passing. Every time I think of him, I remember the day we spent together, probably in our junior or senior year of high school, planting pine trees at Watts Christmas Tree Farm. I didn't really know Kelly at school, but over the course of that muddy day we spent digging holes for seedlings and covering them up again, I realized he was kind, funny, smart, and charming. We had so much fun and I really enjoyed getting to know him--I would like to think that some of those trees we planted are still there today. My sincere condolences to his loved ones during this time of loss.

Mary, Ryan, Catherine and Family. I was truly saddened to hear of the passing of Ken. My deepest sympathy to you all. I worked with Ken for over 15 years at SKF. Ken was a very kind and compassionate person. He was a very hard worker and a dedicated person to both SKF and to his family. He had a wonderful sense of humor and was very witty. Death brings a loss that no one can heal. Love leaves a memory that no one can steal. Ken was a wonderful person and a great co-worker.

Dear Mary and family. I am saddened to hear of Ken’s passing. My sincere condolences and prayers of comfort to you. I had the pleasure of working with Ken throughout his SKF career up to the time of my retirement a year and a half ago. Ken and I collaborated together on my last significant project in Hawesville KY. Whether we were up to our elbows in grease inspecting slewing bearings, or touring the winery while visiting SKF Schweinfurt, we always got the job done, shared laughs, and learned from each other, making each of us better at our jobs and making us better people.

 

Marty and Bob Wrocinski posted on 2/1/17

I remember when my husband said that a girl he worked with (Janet Foster) was hoping that her brother would find a nice girl to date. Immediately we thought of Mary Pat. Pictures and phone numbers were exchanged and the rest was history. Ken and Mary Pat were a match made in heaven. We also remember how playful Ken was with children. We can remember Ken tossing our son and daughter high into the air and catching them....most of the time. Ken was a great man!

JoAnn Alberts Garvin posted on 1/5/17

My husband Bob Alberts and I were with Jack and Katie on their first date. It was the beginning of a lifelong friendship, the kind that we rarely find. Jack was one of the finest men I've ever known, a loving and generous father, a faithful husband, a born comedian, a brilliant metallurgist, and a successful and principled businessman. As a dad, he had five kids of his own, whom he cherished and was openly proud of; then he took on Katie's six, and was exactly the same with them. He met them, by the way, the morning after that first date, when he woke up on Katie's sofa - where she had directed him when she felt he shouldn't be driving - to find a row of little faces staring at him and asking who he was. I think he fell in love with them immediately, as he did with Katie, because in no time he was urging marriage. Jack and Katie were a hospitality team in their own home. From friends and neighbors, to business associates, to the entire Munster High School wrestling team AND their parents, Jack and Katie welcomed them all, to a feast of her fabulous Italian cooking accompanied by his lively and definitely non-PC banter, and washed down with generous libations, of a type appropriate to your age, of course. The stories about Jack are endless, and mostly true. He did, at least once, convince a tableful of business associates he was dining with, to fly - right now! - to Las Vegas, for a few hours of casino fun. On him. Yes, he did. Katie was, as always, bemused and slightly amused. "Oh, Jack!", she would say... shaking her head. After Bob's untimely death, Jack became an even more thoughtful friend. He knew several of us who were widowed young, and he would invite us to dinner with Katie and him, and offered an ear for us to talk to about cars and money and business matters. He watched over our children, too. My daughters love him for the understanding and the light touch he showed during their tough times, like not having their dad there to walk them down the aisle. Having Jack there, their dad's good friend, consoled them. Personally, although I am a banker by training, and a skeptic from hard experience, I would have trusted Jack with my life (And occasionally did, when he was driving.) Or with my bank book, or the keys to my castle. I know his integrity was crystal clear, solid as the steel he spent his life helping to make. My world is diminished by the loss of this dear friend, and I offer my most heartfelt condolences to Katie and the entire family.

Jack was one of the funniest people I've ever known! He was also one of the most generous, most loyal, and most loving person to his entire family and friends. He was so proud of ALL of his kids. I'll always cherish the time I spent at the Schwer home in Munster. Always great laughs, great food, and best of all was the great people. Jack will be greatly missed but his legacy lives on through his kids and the people he touched. Rest in Peace, heaven is a happier place today since Jack arrived. Keep em laughing Jack!

my condolences go to Debbie and all the family. I have many memories of growing up with Don. We became friends at age 8 in West Pullman. Many days of playing touch football and baseball at the park. Growing up caddying and learning golf together. I hope Don told you of our ability to play four games of Monopoly in an hour. The dice flew, tokens sped around, and within 15 minutes their was a concession by one party or the other. Two bits was the prize. All the years growing up together we were the only Cub fans in our groups that hung out at the park. Don, I hope you were able to cherish the Cubs' championship this past fall. It was many years in coming. You will always be in my memories.

My thoughts are with Sherrie's family. I remember Sherrie so well from school. We lost touch over the years, but I certainly never forgot her. She was intelligent, thoughtful, passionate and kind. One of those people who was admired and liked by everyone. Hugs to the family -- my thoughts are prayers are with you.

We are thinking and praying for of all of you at this difficult time. Find comfort in knowing that Sherrie brought happiness and warmth to all who knew her. She always had a kind word or smile whenever we greeted. I had the pleasure of teaching and working with Kevin at St. Ann. Claire and Emily spent all their elementary years with Erin. We all spent many seasons on the volleyball bleachers. No matter the score, Sherrie was always encouraging and cheerful.Your beautiful family is a testament to your love and devotion. You have touched endless lives. Words of comfort are hard to find at this time. We were blessed to have had you in our lives. God bless all of you.

Sherrie was a great friend of mine in high school - she was such a brigh, warm, fun person and so talented. We had just reconnected via FaceBook after many years. I am so grateful that we had the chance to catch-up in October, and she sent me a heartwarming condolence upon the death of my father last month. I am shocked and saddened at her loss, and so grieved for her beloved family. Wishing strength, peace and comfort to Sherrie's husband and children, as well as to her mother and brother, and to her relatives all. I am holding the family in my thoughts.

My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Mr.Bach. Our Heavenly Father gives us a comforting thought when He tells us that soon death will be "swallowed up forever." (1 Cor. 15:54) Along with this, God also promises that ones who have died will be able to live again. (John 5:28,29) I hope these encouraging scriptures can bring you some comfort during this difficult time.

I was at a family dinner Saturday night when I read about Gerry’s passing. I actually let out a little yell and several people at the table asked if I was OK. It’s taken me this long to collect my thoughts and get over the shock. Gerry was the best. We were on the same wavelength about a lot of things and I was as close to him as anyone I have worked with in my 37+ year career so far. I first worked with him in 1985 at my first agency job at Frankel on the McDonald’s account. I was assigned to work on new technology and there was Gerry and Dick Helland, tinkering with one of the first computerized design systems that Frankel invested big bucks in. (A cheap laptop could probably do what that thing did back then, but it was fascinating stuff back then). Besides being in awe of Gerry’s creativity (first-ever McDonald’s Monopoly game POP in 1986-87 and so many others), Gerry and I shared a fascination with new technology and techniques. He was really a technology pioneer, doing things decades before they caught on in the mainstream. One of his projects was putting a TV monitor in place of a translite in a McDonald’s menu board to play silent commercials featuring breakfast items at breakfast, lunch items at lunch time. This was in the mid 1980’s, decades before digital signage. After Frankel, I worked with Gerry for almost 12 years at Wunderman where he created the amazing design template that Taco Bell used when they relaunched their entire concept with the first ever value menu. (I knew we had hit on something when word got back to us that Court Keniston at McDonalds held up pictures of the Taco Bell designs at a creative review session with Frankel and said “Why can’t you guys do something like this”). Gerry’s pioneering work never stopped. At Wunderman, he created a virtual reality technique for Taco Bell and Blockbuster where you could see what the different POP designs would look like in a virtual 360 degree store. The client could see what the entire campaign would like and how all the different elements would coordinate. Brilliant stuff! I still remember Gerry getting one of the first Mac’s while at Wunderman. He had this little SE hooked up to this huge 25” B&W CRT monitor and was doing some amazing things with it. This was before Photoshop and Illustrator! Later on, he and I arranged for a group of us to get a discount on our first Mac’s for our own use. (I still have that Mac IIsi). Once when we won a big new account, Gerry yelled out “Quadra’s for everyone!”. He always wanted the latest technology. I knew Gerry was working in a sporting goods store, fulfilling his other hobby. (I still remember the venison jerky he would bring in to the office after one of his hunting expeditions). I knew he was a smoker but, in typical Gerry form, he did not tell too many that he was sick. He just silently worked through it like he always did. I will miss him tremendously… Jim Litwin

Man, oh man. This news of Gerry's passing saddened me in ways that defy description. Hard to summon the words really. Gerry was a terrific mentor, and more, to many of us “creative cuckoos” that came up on the art side through the apprentice program at Abelson-Taylor, then Frankel (me, in 1979-1980 and 1984-1987). He was a singular talent, and I remember him most for those McDonald's Happy Meal boxes he made famous—especially with the first installment of the Star Trek movie franchise. Deftly concepting and directing brilliant illustration and images for packaing, in-store displays and promotional premiums, his work sent sales boldly going where they never had before. I very much looked up to Gerry as I was getting my first taste of the real world after college, and my start in the businesses of advertising, marketing and promotion. Grounded in the traditional, Gerry was also an "early adopter," of new technologies before the term was ever coined. Of systems like the Mac that would transform how creative work would forever more be generated, Gerry saw those before anyone else did. Jumping in with both feet, long before peripheral knowledge of the digital revolution was the minimum price of admission for employment in our industry, he soon became an expert without peer—streets ahead of the competition. I always marveled at and respected the way he pursued and embraced finding new and better ways of doing things. Personally, to his many friends, Gerry was a man of great humor and concrete loyalty. A few summers ago, I happened to catch up with him over beers and dinner at his place in Valparaiso. He was gracious and affable as ever, and he and his family treated me famously. Anyone who knew Gerry well will miss him terribly as he was taken from this planet far too soon. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family during this most difficult time. ~Kevin McGraw

I am very sad to hear about Gerry’s passing. Gerry was a great artist, chess player, storyteller and teacher. He also was very modest about his talents and very eager to learn new things. While at Frankel we did many things outside the office including: fishing, camping and enjoying good music. He came out of the apprentice program, taught others and brought his unique style to everything he touched. His successes gave hope to other apprentices that followed in his path. I think everybody who knew him had to smile when they saw Gerry. He was a great observer of people. His humor was quick, sarcastic, original and memorable. Gerry believed in washing his own car, taking care of his family first, and keeping his beer cold. It’s been so long since I’ve seen him and he was a big part of my Frankel years.

Linda and Jeff, my heart goes out to you! Your dad was a very good man in every aspect of the definition and a great uncle. He had his ways, but the two of you were his top priority. He always treated people good and could dress up or down for any occasion. Your dad remembered more of grandma Risley's sayings than mine did, or they just sounded better coming from him. Your dad will be missed and I have a lot of great memories because of him. God bless you and your families. One funny thing your dad and my dad did was whipping cream for desert so long in the bowl that when my mom came back to the kitchen it was hard like butter-who new you could mess up whip cream? :).

Dr. Brody may not have known it, but he was a temporary father figure to me at a young age; he was also my pony league baseball coach, who inspired and encouraged. He always commented on my toughness as an athlete. I knew I was always welcomed when stopping by his residence unannounced as a child and as an adult. He, also, always had extremely kind and uplifting words about my mother, who served as a nurse with him for many years at the Hammond Clinic. While attending his oldest son's (Jon) wedding in Wisconsin, he uttered the most uplifting words to myself and others during a gathering that a young man could want to hear from such a distinguished individual. He stated that I was his favorite amongst his son's friends. This left a lasting impression on me well throughout my adult years. I am forever grateful to Doc Brody. May perpetual light shine upon him for all eternity…Peace!!!

I do not get the extraordinary honor to say that I knew Yiorgo personally. I heard of him through choir however and got to see a goofy side of him as my aid in beginning choir this past school year. He was always cracking jokes, making us all laugh and smile. A day was never dull in his presence. His passing was one that shocked and moved us all, and I'm terribly sorry for the family's loss. One thing that my choir director told us during this difficult week stuck with me. It was that in times like these, life may seem very unfair. You may be sad, depressed, or even angry and that unfortunately is the sorrowful part of this whole step. Yet, there's a certain beauty to these tough times and it is that it brings us all together. We all love Yiorgo unconditionally and have this beautiful unity through him that will never fade. This is what we need to focus on. It's not going to be easy, but it's what's worth it and that's all that really matters. We need to remember that Yiorgo is still here with us, and we should focus on remembering the happy times we shared with him. My heart goes out to his family and may God comfort you during these difficult times.

When we moved to Munster 8 years ago, we would hear stories of Yiorgo from our son, who was a classmate of his. He would come home and tell us the funny things that Yiorgo said or did that day.

In loving memory of my Uncle (tio) Oliver Flores that came to visit me in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan several times. And with each visit he always reminded me so much of home along with his daughter Denise and what other family members that came along with them. I will always remember how much he enjoyed taking trips to Mackinac Island, Mackinaw City and Pictured Rocks with us! He always looked forward to visiting with me which always made my wife and I feel special. GOD bless his heart for being such a loving and caring man! He will be SO sadly missed by my wife and I! May he rest in peace with GOD and his wonderful wife Jenny now! They are together now into eternity! Thank you so much for the memories.You will never ever be forgotten!!!!

Although I did not have the pleasure of knowing Helen, I did have the privilege of working with Pete. He and I are friends who formerly worked at the police department together. He shared many stories of his mother, and the lessons he learned from her. These lessons were shared with me and I believe they shaped of my life also and most definitely for the better. Although I cannot attend the service, please accept my humblest condolences and Sympathy for the loss of your great mother. May God hold you all a little closer during this your time of loss, and comfort you with the knowledge of her sweet Spirit is still surrounding you. Take care my friends, Lance Kurmis #205

For those who follow Jesus Christ, to be absent from our bodies is to be present with the Lord Jesus. It quite frankly can't get any better than that! But the rest of us who are left behind, the death of loved ones can be a devastating loss. I am praying for you and your family. Such loses are bitter-sweet when we know that our loved ones are with the Lord, but no longer available to us. Just remember that in just a little while, we will rejoin those who have gone before us. Small children cry when their parents leave them because they do not appreciate that their parents are only just in the next room. Our mourning for loved ones separated from us by death can be thought of in the same way. They are just in the next room, and shortly we will be reunited. Until then, the Lord Jesus will comfort you and bless you.

To my friend Dan, I would say this - thanks for showing me how to meet life with verve and enthusiasm each day. Thanks for teaching me how to play craps on the floor of our cube at work, talking me into buying a Big Bertha driver, taking me on your family golf trips, and arguing endlessly about ideas as good as baseball analytics and as bad as piping pop straight to your sink. It sure was fun while it lasted. As for me, I will one day laugh about these memories and feel better for having known Dan. But for now, it just hurts, for when a brilliant light is extinguished, it takes time to adjust to the vapid drabness that is left in its wake. Wherever you are, buddy, hit 'em straight. Love ya, and see you in the next life.

Dan is a great man. Dan is a great father and husband. Dan is a great friend. Dan is a great happiness for everyone knows him. He is generous, considerate and helpful. He always want to help people feel more comfortable and he brings people laugh and warmth. For me, the time I have spent with Dan is a treasure in my life. He influences me and teaches me in many ways. He is a successful example for me to study and pursue for. He is a mentor who guides me toward correct path. I learn how to ski and enjoy the excitement from it by Dan's helping hands. I know great movies and basketball games and watch them with Dan. I realize my responsibility to my future and my life under Dan's instruction and advice. Dan is a selfless man who works hard everyday without laziness or complaint. I miss Dan's homemade potato, bacon and egg in the breakfast. I miss Dan's joke and story in the driving time. I miss Dan's recommendation of classic movie in the chat. I miss Dan's great choice in the pizza restaurant. I miss Dan's cheer in the watching of a Bulls game. I miss Dan's consideration in the trips that I visit his family. I miss Dan's happy face in the poker game. Every piece of memory with Dan will always stay with me. His words will always remind me of being a good person. Hey Dan, your greatness influences us. Rest in peace.

Mr. Shields appeared in an episode of what we called MitchTV--a reality based TV show that aired in 2008 during Mitch Daniels campaign for Indiana Governor. We stopped in the Commander Restaurant and Mitch and Mr. Shields had lunch together and Mitch learned a lot about WWII. here is a link to the show. If the family would like a DVD copy of the show, please send an email to me at the address below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzxQOwqgpzk

Jesus promised us a wonderful resurrection of the dead (John 5:28,29/1 Thessalonians 4:13, 14), so we have the hope of being reunited with our deceased loved ones. In the meantime, even though the pain of loss through death may seem sometimes insurmountable, rest assured that God will give you the strength necessary to endure the coming months (Psalm 46:1).

May I offer my sincere condolences to the Adams family for your loss. Losing a loved one is very difficult.

We want to extend to Jen's family and friends our sincerest and deepest sympathy in this enormous loss of a lady who truly touched every single person she came in contact with, in such a special and unique way. Jen talked so highly and with such love about her sons and husband. It was a pleasure to hear and see how proud she was of all of you! We were Blessed to have Jen as my son Michael's, teacher, mentor, role model, and one of the most supportive people in our life! Jen was the most caring, compassionate, hard working, kind-hearted lady that you could ever have the pleasure of being around. With Jen's tireless effort and guidance for all of her students, there was never a time when she didn't make the kids feel empowered, courageous, and comfortable that they could accomplish anything---all things!! The respect and kindness she always showed her students was amazing!! Her wonderful way of understanding and being so supportive of her students and their families was priceless! Jen's sincere kindness and warmth in all that she did, shone through like a ray of sunshine! Thank You, JenAnn, for showing my son in life how it should be done---with genuine warmth and compassion because of the relentless commitment you showed him in all that you did!! All who knew you--- will miss you so much, Jen. We are all broken-hearted over your loss, but you will never be forgotten! We are grateful and thankful for having the blessing of you in our life! We love you and may you rest in peace. God Bless.

I think my favorite memory of Mrs. Adams was actually a span of every single morning at Munster High School. From freshman year, through the end of my Junior year, she was never not there. She greeted me every morning with a smile, no matter what was going on in her life. She would chat with me and help quiz me when I was panicking over little tests or even finals. She had such a caring soul and I've witnessed her help so many children achieve success - the success they deserve... it's really hard for me to imagine her not being there for all the kids she's helped, and for the staff at MHS. I've never been more honored than I am to know her and say that she was a part of my journey at Munster High School. We've lost a true asset - a gem in a world that needs so many more people like her. We were truly blessed.

I was a student of Mrs. Adams. She was an incredible teacher. I became pregnant my freshman year of highschool, and immediately, mrs adams set everything in place for me to graduate. She made it possible. She bent over backwards to make sure i succeeded. Even in her final days, she emailed me from the hospital about my progress. When i walk at my commencement this sunday, ill think of her the entire time, and how she convinced me i could earn this on days where i had no other support, sleep, or will to push through. Munster High School will not have another educator like this.

 

Robert Snyder, friend posted on 6/2/16

I think my fondest memory of Mrs. Adams is that every memory is fond. She had the precious gift of being able to connect with everyone in a completely authentic way. She dedicated her life, both inside and outside of school, to helping struggling students find success. She believed in students when they couldn’t find the courage to believe in themselves. With her guidance, they were able to accomplish their educational goals, to find a direction for their lives, and to find the voice within themselves. Jen practiced what she imparted to students. She always sought solutions in face of difficulties, and she treated every student and staff member like family. The profundity of her loss is only eclipsed by the enormity of her contribution.

I worked on A number of jobs where Randy was my boss. He was considerate ,fair, and just one of the boys and just a plain good guy. I could tell stories about Randy for hours Wimpies, shakeys pizza, white castles. Last time I saw Randy was at Mejiers in Merrillville several years ago. I ran my shopping cart in to his, he looked at me and said Cliff Fry. I was proud he still remembered me. He was A fine and decent man. The Western Electric Community has loss one of its best and heaven is a little better. Rest in peace my friend.

Hi Paul, I'm very sorry for you loss and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I know it's a very hard time for you and your family but it would seem she lived a long and wonderful life with a wonderful family. She is now in a better place and probably visiting with everyone that passed before her. Please let me know if you need anything from me while you're out taking care of yourself and family. With my deepest condolences Dennis

Your family has my deepest sympathy. I’m so very sorry for your loss. Well, I was thinking of something to say to ease the tremendous pain that your family is suffering. So I compiled this list of Scriptures that is sure to bring you comfort in this difficult time: Psalms 55:22; Proverbs 3:5, 6; Isaiah 41:10; 2 Corinthians 1: 3-7; James 4:8; and Revelation 21:4. Be strong. Cherish the memories. May the peace of God be with your family always. And please remember to call upon His name found at Psalms 83:18.

You all take good care in this difficult time....that will also be my Prayer for you.

Aunt Julia was a great aunt for all of us Gorecki kids. She was a great cook, a good listener, a devoted wife and mother, a role model. We lost touch the last few years, as our family moved around, but I thought of her always as the steady rock within the family. After Uncle Eddie and Bobby passed, she carried around a sadness that, I would guess, never left her. I am sure that she is with them now. All my love, Marge Gorecki Tsitouris

 

 

Dennis Gorecki posted on 1/27/16

Aunt Julia was my Godmother, and my favorite aunt. Even if she, and Uncle Eddie, didn't give the Gorecki kids the best Christmas and birthday gifts (which they did), she would still be my favorite aunt! Aunt Julia had a quiet but warm and loving demeanor about her that made her very approachable. She had a calm about her that was very reassuring that all was well, even for a boy who was often not so sure. Rest in peace, Aunt Julia. I know that all is well with you, especially since you are now reunited with Uncle Ed and cousin Bob.

My Dear Milosevich family, I am so sorry that your stunning wife, the mother and Nanni of your beautiful family has finished this journey on earth. I too am very sad. Helen was admired and loved by countless people for her gracious ways. She was the Matriarch that everyone looked up to. I loved and respected every conversation and always so knowledgeable on anything that she had to share. Not to mention her fabulous cooking, always there helping someone, her beautiful smile while doing what she was best at ~being herself~ She will be sorely missed, but know that she is at her eternal reward flying with the angels and looking over you all. I love you all! Jeannine Stepnoski Taylor

I have such warm memories of Mrs. Milosevich & the entire family. I grew up spending many hours at their home as a young child - spinning Beatles albums, playing hide & go seek (before the street lights came on), going to Santa's Village & so much more... Mrs. Milosevich was always so welcoming ... I am glad they lived down the street from my family. Mrs Milosevich, Evy & Diane made my childhood so much more enjoyable! What a wonderful family! Sorry I will not be able to attend the service - my flight departs Chicago on Saturday. I reserved a memorial in Mrs. Milosevich's name at Saint Archangel Michael Serbian Orthodox Church.

It always put me in the right frame of mind.

Through Phil's tales, I feel as if I know each of you. Phil was a wonderful person who always cared more about others than himself. When Phil would thank me for helping with a customer, I would always respond with, "I am here for the masses, to which he always responded, "I am just happy to be in the choir". No, Phil you were always here for the masses and I truly consider it to have been a blessing to have been in a pew...I will cherish many fond memories of Phil, but I am happiest that he knew our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Steve and I are very sorry to hear about your loved one and want to send our sincere condolences. I lost my mother December 20th unexpectedly after a surgery. We wanted to share with you some comforting words that was given to us. Jesus Christ promised.. “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5: 28, 29) 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.” "No resident will say: ‘I am sick." “At that time the eyes of the blind ones will be opened, and the very ears of the deaf ones will be unstopped. At that time the lame one will climb up just as a stag does, and the tongue of the speechless one will cry out in gladness.” Isaiah 33:24; 35:5, 6. There will no longer be obituary columns to bring us sadness. Instead, there may well be just the opposite, announcements of newly resurrected ones. No matter how great the promises are we still miss them, so Steve and I wanted to share a link that was given to us where other family's have found a measure of Peace... its audio so its nice to listen to! www.jw.org/download/?fileformat=MP3&output=html&pub=we&langwritten=E&option=TRGCHlZRQVNYVrXF You have our thoughts and prayers, Steve & Tricia White [email protected]

Mrs. Blocher had a huge impact on my life and the lives of many of her students. Not only was she a great educator, but also an inspiring person. She went above and beyond her duties as a first grade teacher by working after normal school hours with me on my English. Flash forward sixteen years, and I still constantly find myself telling the story of the teacher that would point to pictures in the phonics book, and helped me pronounce words until I got them right; such sweet memories. I owe my educational and career successes to her; and she will be greatly missed. My deepest condolences and prayers to your family.

She helped me cope with my social and emotional recovery after my mothers aneurysm and that's something I'll never forget. Her everlasting kindness has continued to leave an impression on me since I was 7 and she will never be forgotten in my heart. Like the song she taught us that we sang every morning, "...and when it's all finished its time to say goodnight."

My condolences to the family. Mrs. Blocher was my first and second grade teacher. She set the foundation for my becoming a good student. She was tough, but fair and kept us engaged. She touched so many lives and left the world a better place for being in it.

Al, I was so sorry to hear of Margot's passing. My prayers to you and your family at this time. I regret that I will not be there to share in the celebration of her life!

 

Susan Crisan posted on 11/18/15

My sympathies go out to the family. Back in spring 1972 I student taught under Margot's supervision. She taught a split first/second grade class at Jefferson Elementary School in Hammond. She was a great teacher both for the students and student teachers. I learned some valuable teaching skills that I took with me and used everyday in my classrooms. Hold those fond memories close to your heart.

Wow...I'm at a loss. Mrs. Blocher was my first grade teacher and I don't think I can honestly give more credit to any other teacher I've had. She taught me some of the most important things and really made a huge impact in my life. I can only hope that my son will someday have a teacher as great, as influential.

I'm so sorry this is a late note to the Slosser family. I just saw that Roger had passed away this summer - do not subsribe to The Times. Roger and your family have been a very close part of our family at various generations of our lives. I do rmember the great fun we had in Jaycees and various other parts of life. He was a great man (Dad & Grandpa) as I rmember from school activities. Our family lives met several times during school days, Jayvee days, community activities and grandparents watching school and sport activities. He was a good man and happy to call him a "friend". My prayers go out to Sandy and your family as I see his obit and remember many good times. Sally Saculla

I am suprised I never had a heart attack, he Loved hiding behind things or around the corner and scareing the crap out of me. Weworked a lot of hours and had a lot of fun and laughs. He also taught me to buy purdy paint brushes and how to cut in corners. He showed me some great painting jobs he did in your house by the shamrock. Was that on madison? Over the yrs I have thought of Warren and wished I had run in to him. Again my condolences. Don Kingston { fish }

Nick and Mary Lou....Bob and I shared most of our childhood together meeting at kindergarten (old eads school) on Harrison Ave. I remember being a Cub Scout with him as well as sharing many a baseball team. I was very saddened to hear this news...wish I would've made an effort to check in with him, not knowing the battle he was in later in life. I do remember the fact that he was the youngest brother in the family and he and I were kept in place by his older siblings at times, probably because we did kick around the Harrison/broadmoor area occasionally getting into some light trouble...hey, we were young and we actually played outside, unlike kids today. I can't imagine the pain of losing a son even at 53. I do remember always being welcomed by you,his parents, Nick and Mary Lou of course out of respect as a kid addressed as Mr. & Mrs. Eismin....when I would drop by to hang with Bob. We did share some great times back In the day and again I'm so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. When I get back to the region, I'll try to stop by and talk with you and hopefully find some comfort. May you find comfort in Gods love and your memories of Bob. Warmest Regards, Tim Burbich

I had the pleasure of working with Dick during all of the time he was at R&D of ArcelorMittal. We had many stimulating technical discussions. But what was interesting was the wide interest that Dick had in many other ttopics. We talked about films, travel, literature and music. Dick had vast knowledge in all of these areas. I really enjoyed all these discussions. When we went out for dinner, at his house or elsewhere with our families, it was always enjoyable. Dick ( and Pam) were wonderful hosts and made you feel so welcome. We will miss these get-togethers. Pam; I will be on a business trip on Thursday. So unfortunately I will not be able to attend the services. But please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you at all times.

She had a lot of health problems but she was very glad she had Penny to count on. I could tell she thought a lot of Penny. Donna would have been very thankful for the way Penny took care of her mom to the very end. I thought everything was very lovely to day. Live on in heaven Eve , I know you're with Jesus and your dear Donna. We will meet again oneday.

I shall always remember Joe's professionalism, his wit and his sense of humor. May the Lord grant Joe eternal rest and peace and may the Lord be with his family, especially Melanie who I have had the opportunity to work with over the years in the U.S. District Court Federal Clerk's Office.

Tammy Rinkema posted on 8/18/15

I have know Tom for 27 yrs starting with Advanced Aluminum Products days to Jupiter Aluminum days. I have so many fond memories of him but one really stands out. Back in the mid 80's while working at AAP, I saw that Tom took an unusually long lunch, he was always on time and he hated it when others weren't, so when he came back "late" from lunch, I stopped in his office to give him a hard time. He looked slowly up from his work at me and didn't give me much of an answer why he was late. Then I noticed something different about him, I saw a wedding ring on his finger, I knew it wasn't there before, and I knew he wasn't married. So I said to him , "now Tom did you go and get married on your lunch break?" He replied, "Yes, I did!" and went on back to his work (with a smile). I have many other memories but I thought I'd share this one. May Tom rest in peace and Cindy and his family find comfort at this time.

There are so many memories that I have of Linda, it would take a book to record them. Linda was the most decent, caring,, bravest, patient, human being and closest friend I have ever known. She had tons of people she cared about and who cared about her, but when she talked to you, she could make you feel like you were so special and everything you had to say was important. She had an amazingly positive attitude and spirit and I learned so much from her over the 38 years that we were colleagues and friends. The world is a much better place because Linda was in it, and I will never forget her, mostly because I have so many gifts, cards, and reminders of her in my house and so many thoughts of her in my head from conversations and things we did. Sarah and Lilly, she loved you and your family so much. We talked about about you once at length about whether or not an older, single aunt would matter much to children that were not actually hers, and I told her I had two of them who loved me so much and were so appreciative of children because they could not have any, that if she made time for you like my aunts did, they would love her very much. I do know what you are going through because both of them died when I was in my twenties, one of cancer and I was in the room with her when she died because at that time I was already working, but the other one passed when I was a senior in college and my parents didn't inform me until I came home that year. I still think of them often, but the pain eventually become less. It will take you a lot of time to heal, but you will. We all will as her spirit will remain with us forever. Rest in peace, Linda. I will never forget you.

Charlotte Crucean Kooistra posted on 7/22/15

I was fortunate enough to have a classroom across from Linda's when I began my first year of teaching English and Creative Writing at Morton HIgh School. We put together a Mass Media module that was mostly her creation. We team taught allowing students to create their own television commercials. We combined our efforts teaching Thoreau and created a team taught module based on Studs Terkel's WORKING including values clarification, journal writing, and even music lyrics. She was passionate about teaching, books, literature, poetry, movies, and of course television. We spent hours talking symbolism of novels we loved teaching. She cared deeply about animals, those unfortunate and those fortunate cats with whom she shared her home. We became close friends and remained so when I moved away. She came to California to see the ocean and visit me, in that order, I jest. I visited her often, staying on her navy blue sofa in her apartment and then in the house she bought. We exchanged gifts, cards, and calls, never missing a holiday. Her gifts were always specially chosen, many, small individually wrapped ones, most including clever boxes with words of wisdom on them. Did I tell you? She loved WORDS. Me too. We considered ourselves wordsmiths. We loved the word DOLLOP. We liked the sound of THUNDER. She loved navy blue and white. I tried hard to keep that color scheme going when shopping for gifts for her. My last visit with her in May gave clarity to the many reasons I loved her. She was at peace with herself. She loved to give. She was loyal, adored her family, her friends; she delighted in authentic conversations. And she listened. We spent time in Chicago exploring books stores and food. Ah, yes, food. We loved to eat. I digress. It was her calmness and her lack of judgment that taught me the most about life. Even in May facing a poor prognosis, she was circumspect, grateful for what she had, unselfishly loving, and revered being loved. She'd given much thought about dying, but never more than she did for living. She took nothing for granted. She nurtured her family all of her life. She was a role model for them, for me. She taught me how to surround myself with love, what unconditional love is about, to let go of the past and the small stuff. She's still teaching me to live in the moment. Enjoy what you have, she would say. Don't take things for granted. I've become her student. I will continue to learn from her as her lessons will continue. I will miss her every day but take comfort knowing she left behind her smile, laugh, inner strength, beauty, her love of life, family, friends, faith. I will miss her on my birthday and will buy her favorite jonquils on her birthday, appropriately the first day of Spring. I will remember what she wrote on every card to me, to her family and friends. Love Always, Linda. We too must also Love Always. That's the enduring message she is telling all of us.

Linda was the collector for dues in DKG,a honor society of teachers. Linda certainly was a great teacher. Her smile and greeting you at meetings was always welcomed. I just sent in my dues and an e-mail to her weeks before her passing to her new life. She gave me encouragement in my journey with breast cancer. Her words were so kind. Purcilla Purnick was in my 4th grade class at Caldwell in Hammond. Linda recognized something in you as I did also in the 4th. grade. We both knew you would go far!

When I think back to my high school years, I would have to say that my junior year was my most memorable year. I had Ms. Luttringer for English 5-6. She made that class exciting and fun to be in. I remember submitting a notebook every week for writing assignments. Fond memories of her class and helping us students with the SAFE (Students for Animals, Forest, and Environment) Club.

 

John Bolinger posted on 7/20/15

Linda and I never in forty-five years missed sending each other birthday and Christmas cards, but Linda also sent to her friends and family cards for Valentine’s Day, Thanksgiving, Easter, and sometimes even the Fourth of July. In all her communications through cards and letters to us all, she never failed to write, “Love always, Linda.” And how true those words were. She was always, generous, kind, funny, and dependable…but above all she was loving and lavished upon all of us her spirit of love in a way that even when she is not with us, we can still remember and feel, because it is something that cannot die. It persists even now so powerfully that death itself cannot destroy its power when we remember this wonderful woman, this remarkable friend whom we continue to love as well….always.

I was completely frightened of any literature class and avoided all of them like the plague in HS (I could do that by using Debate credit for English). But as college neared, I realized what a mistake it was. So I approached Linda and asked her to help me. She spent a ton of time making up a reading list for me, talking me through the relevant points and then ended up actually giving me all of the books as a gift. I had never had her as a classroom teacher and yet she did that for me. What an amazing person. Lots of prayers for the family.....

 

Linda Dearing posted on 7/20/15

I knew Linda for many years, as she was a year behind me at Gavit High School, and her sister, Judy, was in my class. We also worked together at Morton High School for three years. Linda always knew how to make me laugh, and we had some silly and wonderful fun with some of our other friends. Though we lost touch over the years, only recently reuniting on Facebook, I never forgot her beautiful smile and her joyous way of greeting life. It was my pleasure to have known her.

All of my memories of Joan are positive memories. She would always put everybody elses wants and needs before her own. When I was overseas deployed with the Navy, she would send me letters. My correspondence to her, she kept for over 25 years and recently returned it to me. Joan was always there when you needed some kind words or a small gift that would bring a smile to your face. She would always send a card for the holidays or just to tell me she enjoyed having lunch with me. All of these things that she did touched so many lives. Joan was a beautiful person and I am glad she was my cousin. I will miss her.

Walter and Toni, I pray that your grief is a journey, not a place to stay too long. May God leave you with just enough of the pain your hearts must be experiencing today to forever remind you of your love for Arend.

Dearest Kathy and Tsoukalas Family, I know from how you spoke about Jim that his death is a deep loss for you all and all of those that knew him. I strive to live a life with my family as loving as yours is together. Even though Jim is gone, know that love continues to surround you. Live each day with his spirit in your hearts and he will always be with you. Jim was a wonderful husband and loving father - there is no greater privilege to have witnessed these truths in your lives. May he rest in peace and may his family find peace in these days and months ahead.

I did not know Jim personally but have become very close to Kathy over the past 2-3 years and feel I know him and their children through Kathy's eyes and caring words. Every time she spoke of Jim and the kids, she lit up and the love and closeness they all shared as a family, couple and friends was very evident. I'm so happy they were able to add to their 20 years together, the recent memories of their trip home to Greece this past year. My deepest sympathies and heart felt prayers go out to them all during this time.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Although it seems that your loved one lived a long and happy life, the pain, at times can still be hard to deal with. Having a hope in God and His word the bible can help at times like these. Notice the comforting words at Isaiah 25:8. "He will swallow up death forever. And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces...." What a wonderful hope, one that only the True God can fulfill.

 

T. Smith posted on 6/10/15

Please accept my sincere condolence for your loss. May the comfort from friends and family, help you cope in the days to come. God's word gives us even more, it gives us a hope, notice what it promises at Revelation 21:4 "And he will wipe out every tear form their eyes,and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain e anymore. The former things have passed away." What a wonderful hope, one we can trust. May these words comfort your heart in the days to come.

Kermit was a major influence in my life when I was a student of his at Hammond Tech. He taught me how to find time to read more and the value of good study habits. Through his influence and that of some others, I went from being an indifferent student to eventually obtaining my Masters Degree. I would like to convey my sincere sympathy to his family. May God bless him.

I am so sad that she has left us. I know everyone up in Heaven is having a great time right now with her! I know she will meet all of us at the gate when its our time. God Bless Laura!

Fred , Beth , Lynn and Family : So sorry to read about your MOTHER. I had no knowledge about this until I just read her obituary. The last time I talked to your mom and dad was when they were playing golf in front of me at LCC. I was by myself and they would not let me play through. When I caught up to their foursome on the next tee , I introduced myself ( they knew me from working for them and being friends with you kids ) and they told me that they were not going to stop playing just to let me thru. We all had a laugh about that and had small talk - I knew that was enough and to get my butt to the next hole so they could continue. I know how you tough it is to lose the ones you LOVE. I can only say : remember the great times and how wonderful it was to have the parents you had. GOD BLESS YOUR PARENTS AND YOUR FAMILY. MY VERY BEST TO YOU ALL - TIM AND FAMILY

I'll always remember Andy as my best friend as a kid during our days at St. Mikes. People have been saying he was one of a kind and truer words cannot be said. You knew where you stood with him and you also knew when you got together it was going to be a great time. Sadly, it was he and Eric Ostojic that helped me convince my parents to let me go to Grimmer for 8th grade. I would be a whole different person if I had never met Andy. I am grateful that I was able to call him a friend, even if it was for a short time. We had recently talked about hitting a Cubs game this year and I regret that we didn't act on it soon enough. I will not soon forget how happy he seemed the last time we talked and that is how I will remember him. RIP Andy, and thanks for all the good times.

Dale was a friend and a fellow co-worker at Midwest Refrigeration Corp. Dale's love for his family is encouragement for us all,many times he spoke fondly of his wife and children. Dale was always first to help anyone in need, from those who suffered during the floods a few years back to being a coach for youth sports. Although Dale suffered setbacks in his life he always remained a positive person, this is one thing about him that shall remain with me forever. But for all the things that will be said, I think mostly that we lost a Refrigeration Giant this pass Monday. Even though Dale was pretty much born into this business, 58 years later he was still excited about the sale, the engineering, the installation, and service of Supermarket Refrigeration. Dale loved working with his customers, and was eager to help them with their various challenges. Yes we are all sadden by Dale's passing, but there is joy knowing that Dale is in the arms of his savior Jesus Christ.

He was very joyful which made the meeting go by rather quickly. We laughed a lot as he talked about the popcorn he picked-up at Garrett"s on his way to St. Louis. He joked about how delicious the popcorn was and that he had to put it in the trunk to keep from eating the entire bag. We said our goodbye's and planned to meet again during his second visit. He's surely smiling down on us all has he take his place with the Lord. Keep your strength family...knowing you will see him again.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Mrs. Preslin was our Journalism teacher when she first came to Seton in 1986. We spent many hours with her as year book and newspaper moderator. She was so proud of her family and spoke of you often. I always hoped I'd be able to capture her spirit and fire as an adult, she was an excellent example of what a strong and confident woman should be for the young girls of Seton. I know you will miss her terribly. I pray you will find peace in the knowledge she had a positive influence on so many people

 

Colleen Broderick posted on 5/7/15

Mrs. Preslin was a kind, thoughtful, wonderful woman. I was lucky enough to have had her for English class in 1988. She made a difference in my life, as it related to literature and life. She will be celebrated in the after-life and missed sorely in this one.

Sally and family - I have such wonderful memories of John from when I was a kid. One in particular was when we lived down the street from you. You were visiting, and John read us a bedtime story. As we listened, I remember being captivated as he made the story come alive thru his rich voice and passionate intonation. Although we lose a loved one here on earth, we gain an angel in heaven that watches over us. May you take comfort in knowing that John is watching over you now as he finally sees his Savior face to face and hears “Well done good a faithful servant.”

I always enjoyed seeing Bennie and Pat when they came to Lawson's Bottom. Bennie liked to fish in Crocus Creek. We were fishing one day tied up to a big tree on the bank. We kept hearing popping sounds and couldn't figure out what it was. Finally it dawned on me that it was tree roots snapping. I told Bennie to quickly untie us, and just as we pushed away, the huge tree came crashing down right where we had been! Close call!

A Toast to the late Mr Kocal! Mr Kocal was a HUGE influence, in my life! He counseled me into becoming a Nurse Practitioner and attending/ graduating from Indiana University. Knowing that neither of my parents had high school diplomas, or comprehended what an SAT score was, it was he that supported and guided me on through to college. Compassion and service to others, were his gifts to us, and now this "Morton Grad" pays it forward, to others, because of his example. May GOD bless us all as the world we grieve the loss of one of GOD's bright lights, today! Nichole (Acheson) Scott

I was a young gal at the time and she took a liking to me. I liked her immediately. She was kind and I admired her also for her beauty. Her and I were tea drinkers and every morning one of us would make a kettle of tea. Ralph was also a very nice man . I enjoyed working with him as well. RIP Viola and Ralph.

Richie, I'm going to miss you BROTHER. You are one of the last of a generation of Elite Pipefitter/Welders that helped make our Union local 597 the leader in the industry that it still is today. You helped set the bar high for many to try and follow. The ones who followed your example became much better if not great Pipefitter/welders because of it, as well as becoming better individuals in the process, and they were hardly ever out of work and always able to provide for their families because of it, thanks to your help and instruction. I've had the opportunity to work on so many different jobs in and around our locals jurisdiction since first starting in Dec. of 1977 and I can honestly say that you are one of the best all around welders/great guy that I've ever had the pleasure to work around. There are a lot of welders who talked the talk but could never walk the walk. You walked the walk and then some. You were very humble in your approach and outlook. You never talked about yourself and your special skills as a person, instructor, pipefitter and welder. You let your welds and your work and actions do the talking for you. You led by example. You were and always will be a true PROFESSIONAL. You never talked down to anyone that was looking for help, even those who had a hard of trying to learn how to weld on an elite level such as yourself and a select group of others. You never walked away from anyone who was willing to learn and needed help and that speaks volumes to you as a person, and that is why you were so loved and respected by so many apprentices and journeymen who's lives that you touched through out your years and career as a Pipefitter and Instructor of Local 597. I had the pleasure of first meeting you and working around you early in 1978 where our friendship began in McCartin/McAuliffe's fab shop on Chicago Ave. in East Chicago In. Rich I can honestly say that you helped to form and influence me as a welder, as well as teach me a lot of the necessary skills that I needed to survive and to be a better than average pipefitter and welder, instruction and advice that I carried with me still to this day, advice that helped me to survive and make it through some of the tough times and putting me in a position to always be able to provide for my family, and for that I will be forever grateful. Thanks again for everything Rich, I'm going to miss you more than you will probably ever know, you always were a true gentleman and a great friend and someone that I always looked up to and respected. Take care and God speed. Love you Rich your friend and brother Joe Soltys.

I always enjoyed the time I worked with Harry at Federal Signal. He was such a great and funny guy. He had a cute nickname for me, Jewel. Coincidentally, in my language, my name means 'two pieces of jade'. However, I never got the chance to tell him. I really wish I was able to attend the funeral. I want his family to know he will be missed.

I am so shocked and saddened by Harry's passing. Harry and I started with JD Edwards at the same time. We worked on many projects there together and then were reunited working together again at Federal Signal. When I was traveling, if Harry was on the project too, I knew it would never be boring with his humor. I especially loved the family vacation stories and was amazed when he would talk about his pre-programmer days and all of the things he had done. Always a pleasure to be around, he will be missed. My condolences to the Hoffman family. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Hello, Margo and family -- it has been years since we last connected, although I spoke with Don several times after I graduated from Purdue in 1979. As Purdue's first undergraduate student trustee I couldn't possibly recount the number of insightful conversations we had, and how Don's business wisdom fueled my interests to extend beyond engineering as the years have unfolded. And yes, the glint in his eye for antics along with the likes of Maury Knoy, Bob Heine, Bill Krieg, Sherm Kessler and Tom Graham were unparalleled! (I have a hunch Don snickered from the heavens just now!) What a powerhouse of fun-loving mentors for me at a key time in my development. Blessings in Don's memory, and that more of us could live to his high standard of always doing the right thing for others. My best, Zara Rolfes Larsen

Dear Peggy, It was with great sadness that I learned about the death of Keith. Susanne and I enjoyed visiting him at Mugs Bunny and I’m sure he will be sadly missed. Please accept our sympathy for your sad loss. When we are struggling with grief, music can lift us up, take us out of our current mood, and transport us to another time and place. Music helps us to remember the one who died, and it can help to bring a sense of balance, peace and harmony back into our lives, even if only for a moment. Quote from musician, Marty Tousley. Songs that I remember hearing while playing darts with Keith were “Hard To Handle, Black Crowes”, “What It Takes, Aerosmith” and “Coming of Age, Damn Yankees”. Rest In Peace, Keith……you will be missed! Tony & Susanne Margis

Viola will always be appreciated by me for the love and time she gave to my children, her grand daughters Danielle and Claire. She visited and cared for them from their birth, until age limited her ability to travel. Danielle and Claire will always cherish their lunches with Grandma at the Walnut Room, dining under the Christmas tree or a celebration with "Peter Rabbit". She would never say no to our request of help when they were ill or circumstances left us needing her time. She would clear her schedule to be there for us. She shared the love that only a grandmother can give and it was reciprocated by Danielle and Claire. Thank you for being a wonderful grandmother and mother in law.

To the family of Harry Hoffman my deepest condolences go out to all of you. Harry was a member of our JDE Team at Federal Signal for more than six years. Harry was a very witty person and always had a way to make all of us feel better and to put a smile on all of our faces. He had a nickname for almost everyone and it was always well thought out. He always had a unique way of responding to e-mails, ones that were witty, funny and in some respects making fun of himself. We will always remember Harry as a very hard working co-worker, extremely committed to his work and always providing a positive outlook. He liked to travel and when traveling on business he was the person that always made the arrangements for dinner and included everyone. We will miss Harry as a person we worked with not for the work that he did and that says a lot for his character and how well he was liked by all of the members of the JDE family at Federal Signal. Just remember, as we will, that the separation is only temporary and we will all see Harry once again. Rest in Peace our dear freind, confidant and co-worker

It is Thursday afternoon and I just heard of Greg's death. I am saddened that such a good man was taken so quickly. I taught Greg at Mt Carmel H. S. and he was certianly one of the finest peole I have known. He represented us well. The Carmelite motto is from Elijan the prophet : with ZEAL I WILL BE ZEALOUS FOR THE LORD GOD OF HOSTS. He was filled with zeal for his family and all who knew him....Fr Hesburg was asked once why was Notre Dame successful - He answered because they were committed, competent and compassionate...Greg was all that and more.. My love and prayers to his family. Easter tells us we never say goodbye for the last time. Rest in peace Greg...you are loved forever. shalom

In high school, Greg was on the Mount Carmel Wrestling team, which I helped to coach. Greg was a young man of great character. Always working hard, trying to improve his skills. Always concerned about his teammates. Always approaching life with a positive attitude. I lost touch with Greg after he finished high school until a couple of years ago when I had a bit of email correspondence with him. I know he was super excited about the wrestling accomplishments of his son, Jake. Knowing the character of Greg, I am sure he was a devoted husband and a great father to his five daughters and son. Rest in Peace Greg.

Though I have had years to prepare for this, it has been more difficult than I thought it would be. I am relieved that you are free of the chains of M.S., but I am also sad. Sad that you were sick for so long. Sad that many of your dreams went unfulfilled. Sad that I do not have more memories of you as a healthy guy. I have been trying to remember those healthier times but it's a blur because of how young I was when this started. It was a long road filled with many difficulties but I am glad that we were able to get to a good place. I know that you had been ready to go for some time, and I can hope that there's a special place for you given all you went through in this life. Though you are gone, part of you lives on in Jen and me. I hope I can see you again someday.

Our condolences to Katie and his children. The Suarez/Mendoza cousins, from his mother's side, got to watch Eddie grown up to be a nice young man. As usual, life gets busy and we couldn't keep in touch as much as you would have liked. But when we did run into each other, he treated us as if we had just seen each other the day before. We will miss him and love him very much.

Dear Kramer Family: I am so sorry to have read of your loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21:4. These verses tell us that soon God is going to bring about a resurrection of our loved ones as well as do away with all causes we have for suffering, including sickness and death. Knowing this has always comforted me and it is my hope that these thoughts will comfort your family also.

Brett/Ashley, I have such fund memories of your Dad coaching me in biddy ball and little league. I remember in 4th grade biddy ball your Dad and Joe Culberg were our coaches and we used to practice at Frank H Hammond. In 1997 when Brett and I were on the Rockies and in 1999 on the Astros. I'll never forget either season because we won the Championship and Darrell was our coach. Your dad was my favorite coach in all the years growing up. When others didn't believe in me, he always did. He was always smiling and cared that we were good teammates and always practiced good sportsmanship. Simply put, he was the best coach I ever had. I am so sorry for your loss. He was lucky enough to see grandchildren and you have my deepest condolences. Joshua Levin

Great tributes to a great person. Even though born a twin, Dick was one of a kind. We first met the Deignan family in November of 1977, a couple of days after moving to Munster. We knew soon after that the Deignan's would be life long friends and extended family, which has turned out to be the case. Just like so many others have indicated, Dick (and Joan) allowed the Higgins family to have so many great experiences that we might never wise have had. Dick's generosity, energy, zest for life were unsurpassed. Wealth for Dick was only something to shared with family, friends and acquaintances. He was the ultimate event planner. His bucket list was never ending. We will miss Dick enormously, as we have missed Joan. He treated our family as his. We and our children are blessed to have met the Deignan family. Kerry and Owen will always be a part of our extended family. We love you.

I can't even begin to say how much Mr. D meant to me. He took and showed me places and things I would have never been able to see or experience.

Mike and Donna Lamb posted on 1/17/15

Mike and I will forever be grateful to Dick for his tremendous generosity, friendship and mentorship as we began our journey into the restaurant industry. From Vegas, to Indy, to Chicago and Colorado our memories are filled with great times and stories we will cherish always. He truly taught us to live life to the fullest! In 1996, when our first son was born, boxes of clothes, gifts and a baby blanket arrived on our porch. (Evan still has this on his bed today!) When we had him over for dinner, I casually mentioned that I didn't have a serrated knife. A week later an entire set arrived. We always joked that If I had known, I would have "casually" mentioned that I never had a Porsche. Once ( and only once) he allowed me to order the wines for a dinner for 12 of us that lasted many hours. After that night, he never allowed me to see the wine list when we went out. Some may say he taught me too well! Our New Years Eve's spent in Steamboat were filled with hours of laughter over wonderfully and skillfully prepared meals. To this day we still make the "Mr. D" salad. He obviously touched many of our lives with his huge heart and love for life. We will all remember him for years to come as we recall our own stories that will begin with "Remember that time Dick..." We offer our sincere condolences to all his family and friends and offer one final toast: "Love you Mr.D. Cheers!" Donna & Mike Lamb

 

Joe Thoesen posted on 1/17/15

I have read many of these condolence messages. How do I describe " the most generous man I have ever known ". Since first meeting in the Grand Canyon family raft trip, where our boat became known as " in excess". DD had allot to do with the fun, frivolity, and adventure we all shared during that trip, ending up in Vegas. That set the tone for times together for the next 25 years. Many skiing trips, Chicago reasturants, Burger King conventions, Indy parties, etc etc. Mr. Hospitality was always at the center with open arms, great wit, and more often than not picking up the tab. I can go on and on, but what is truly evident reading these, DD touched so many lives in a very positive way. I will truly miss one of my best friends.

Dick Deignan- a loving father, a wonderful mentor, a generous man, and always fun. Dick had an extraordinary talent for connecting with people and making them feel like close friends or family. He will be missed by the many people that he touched along the way. Spending time with Dick during our college days meant having good times and good food too. I especially remember carpaccio at Givanni's. In Chicago, Dick hosted my wedding shower overlooking Lake Michigan. It was a pretty amazing summer evening with good friends. Dick attended my wedding and visited our home in Denver, too. He will forever be a very special man to me and remembered for his generous spirit, genuine caring, and love. Something I noticed and have tried to emulate is Dick's ability to mentor. He was always willing to listen, give advice and guide others. Kerry and Owen, thanks for sharing your dad with me/us and for being a part of so many wonderful memories.

He was truly a fun loving and free spirited man. One of the best things I have received from Dick is a beautiful, fun loving and gracious sister-in-law! May you rest in peace Dick. You will be missed by many.

I loved Dick like a father, He touched my life personally and professionally. We know that he's at peace and in a better place, however, there's an empty feeling in the hearts of those that knew and loved this man. I also know that you and Kerry grew up without Mom in your life. (She would be so proud) I saw personally how important it was to Dick to get a business off the ground and continue his commitment as a Father to raise the two of you. I know he spent countless hours in his car between home and Indy. That alone speaks volumes to what kind of a Father/Man he was... I can't begin to count the number of people he helped start a business that otherwise wouldn't had the opportunity. Know that Mom and Dad are together, as he always wanted to be.... There are sooooo many great memories that all of us shared with him.. For as long as I live I'll have a special place in my heart for that MAN.. Love you all! DRoach

I first met Dick in Iowa City while Kerry attended the U of I. What a wonderful man, he treated me and everyone he met like family. A truly genuine man! I all ways wanted to put "Supreme Commander" on a business card, I will never forget that! He could outlast us all at the Yacht Club or Monkey's!

Dick will be missed! I'm short on words as normal - but I rabble to much (thus Ramblin Randy). Thinking back he made me a better person - Dick's loving attitude, kindness, welcoming personality and primo cooking was something, no one will match. His generosity to others is something he will all ways be remembered for in my eyes. Kerry & Owen - feel blessed you had such a wonder father, grandfather, and true gentlemen and my friend ... for as long as you had. He will be missed by everyone he crossed paths with - guaranteed!

Where to begin....so many awesome memories of DD. From countless indy 500s (mf sandwich company), lobster bakes, weekend family trips to the city (with DD smoking a cigar in an enclosed car- we were green by the time we got there), trips to lake delevan, keystone, steamboat, seattle (final four), superbowls, Paris (five star of course, Dick knew no other way). I will never forget the countless Burger King goodies-I was the only one at U of I with Burger King reebok tennis shoes (except for probably Kristen Keen of course). You made life fun and exciting! When we moved to Munster, who would have known we would have made such incredible family friends!! Of all the streets in Munster, thank goodness we ended up on Chestnut Lane!! DD, you will be missed.

I have had the beautiful opportunity to know Jasmine's mother, brother, and sister for many years while Jasmine and I spent grade school together at Our Lady of Knock. My fondest memory, however, was during a vacation in Greece in the island of Ikaria. We traveled by car to the side of the island where Jasmine's grandmother lived. The grandmother wasn't well and could only sing Greek songs that I couldn't understand, but I was in her home with four generations of Pamphilis family that day. I appreciate the closeness of the family and I appreciated being part of something truly special. To Mrs. Pamphilis: Thank you for your warm welcomes when I came to visit Jasmine. I appreciated every moment. Timothy Hanley

My condolences to the Sofos family. Ted and I were best buddies at Blue Cross for many years.

Patty and I offer our sincere condolences on your loss. We all met at BCBS in the '70s; we all gave birth to the Blues IT systems - they were our "children"; we all became close friends. Over the years some of us left BCBS; some of us stayed; many of us still love BCBS and our "family". Patty and I will miss Ted and all of the others, living and gone, that we grew to know and love.

Dawn was such a very special woman and will be truly missed. Father, I pray for Tom, and others in my circle of family and friends who are grieving... They're hurting for many reasons, and I ask You to help them through this season of loss. I reach out to You, the Father of compassion and the Source of every comfort, asking You to touch them with Your unfailing love and kindness. Be their God who comforts them as they're going through their struggles, and bring them through the tough things ahead. Come alongside them in their pain, and strengthen them so they'll one day be able to help others who face the same struggles. (2 Corinthians 1:3–4; Psalm 33:22; 1 Samuel 20:14a) You're close to people whose hearts are breaking, those who are discouraged and have given up hope. May You who see their troubles and grief respond when they cry out. (Psalm 34:18; 10:14a, 17) When they're hurting, help them find their joy in You, for it's Your joy that will be their strength. Help them to trust You as their God of hope. Fill them with Your joy, peace, and hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Help them experience the love, joy, and peace that are the results of His life in them, no matter what they're going through. (Nehemiah 8:10b; Romans 15:13; Galatians 5:22) May they sense Your presence in this hour of need. In Jesus' name, Amen.

You have my sympathy on the loss of your loved one. Please allow God to comfort you through His promise to care for our dead loved ones at John 5:28,29. It's so stressful to deal with the death of a loved one because Death was never supposed to be a part of life so God didn't create us with the ability to be content with this loss but our loving creator, Jehovah God, promises to do away with death {Isaiah 25:8} and the one who causes death Satan{Hebrews 2:14} real soon through His Kingdom in the hands of His Son Christ Jesus so that His purpose for mankind can be realized which is to live on a paradise earth under perfect and peaceful conditions. {Genesis 1:27,28; Psalms 37:9-11,29}

Sorry to hear this, what a shock. I'm praying for you,her family, she talked about you all a lot and how proud she was to have each of you. It was great to have worked with and get to know Dawn, I can't say that I ever saw her not smiling. It's great to know that she professed her faith in Jesus Christ, and though it's difficult that she is gone now, for her family and friends, she truly is in a better place. God bless in your time of loss.

We have had the priviledge of being neighbors with Tom and Meg for the last handful of years and not only do we love them both very much, but our children love them like grandparents. We are sad to have lost "Mr. Tom," and will miss seeing him in the yard picking up acorns with his walk-behind picker-upper, telling stories in the park and having big open arms for hugs when the girls see him. Our deepest sympathies to all of his family - he was a great man and will be remembered for his kind heart.

He was always so kind and his willingness to drop whatever he was doing to help me and Ryan out with just about anything we needed at the point in time. Even if that meant he had to drop that (Miller Lite) can for a brief min or two HAHA. He had always called me "COMBS" even though it was a simple nickname it has stuck with me to this day.

I am so very sorry for your loss, Mrs. Bennett, Ralph, Jeff and Steve. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I have very fond memories of my short but very enjoyable encounter with Mr. Bennett on Father's Day close to Chicago during my visit from Panama. His kindness, warmth and sense of humor made me like him immediately, and I could clearly see all at once where Ralph (whom I knew well) had gotten his good-heartedness and kind spirit. Although my meeting with Mr. Bennett was short, he left a lasting impression on both my mind and heart -- I would ask Ralph about his parents every single time we had contact. And, while he will be missed, I have no doubt that he is smiling upon us and watching over us from his VIP accommodations in Heaven. Yours sincerely, Jose

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Rich was a very special person and I consider myself very lucky to have known and dealt with him for the past 25 years. His "nothing is so bad that we can't work it out" attitude is something we all could use a little more of.Words just can't express the void created in so many lives by his passing.

Mrs. Brandt, Debbie and family, My daughter Kathleen and I were up at the funeral home Tuesday night at around 6:45. Hundreds of people standing in line to show their respects for your loss. is what we opened the doors too. What a tribute to the husband and father Mr. Brandt was, as proof of the outpouring show of people. Because of our own time constraints we could not stay to personally show our respects, that is why I'm signing your guest book. Mr. Brandt was a role model to my daughter and hundreds of other young people while students at Saint Paul and for that Kathleen and myself are grateful. They don't give us much space to express everything that needs to be said. He will be remembered by me as a man who could "play" the organ, like it should be played!! He will be remembered by us as a mentor to my kids and a friend to my wife and I. Again, my deepest sympathy for your loss of a husband, father and friend to all.
