Even though I wore surf shorts and sported a stylish mullet, Dr Santare took me golfing many times in the mid 80's with his retiree friends in Jupiter. I'm sure I was an embarrassment to him as I often would chase my ball into the next fairway and still play it as though it were a stellar approach shot. We did have some good laughs- mostly due to my incompetence. Great guy. My best and condolences to you all. He had a fantastic run.

My Uncle Bob, I remember him as a person that would always smile and make you feel good. He was always kind to me as a kid and I always looked forward to seeing him when we went to our grandma's house. He made me laugh. He always had something good to say about you. I have a vivid memory of my uncle Bob one day at my house in Chicago he came over to visit. It was a sunny day and the neighborhood kids were out playing in the streets. We were playing wiffle ball using the front steps of our house as a backstop. Uncle Bob came over and started pitching to me. I had a plastic bat which was about 5 inches in diameter. We joked about it calling in my muscle bat. Bob was having fun pitching to me trying to strike me out, throwing his patented wiffle curve ball that he claimed no one could hit. I remember smacking one across the street on a fly. I felt like Mickey Mantle. He continued to pitch to me showing me different ways to hold a ball to pitch different curves, sinkers, knuckle balls and fast balls. I was probably only 10 years old at the time. That's 53 years ago and I still remember that sunny day in Chicago in the summer of 65. He was my favorite grown-up forever.

To Cliff's family: Every once in awhile, you come across someone in your everyday life that you instantly "click" with. Cliff was that guy. I loved this man. We met at North Winds, as I was the "med man", and I delivered there nightly. Seeing Cliff was always one of the high points of my night. Always good conversation, always good laughs, and the last time I saw him, our big goofy hug, because we were so happy to see each other. After catching up for a few minutes, Cliff followed me outside so we could talk some more. Cliff's passing has really hit me hard. What a great guy. I will miss him. And I am so sorry for your loss. We never made it to the Porthole Cliff, but maybe someday we'll get together for a beer on the other side. Your good Friend, Darrell

 

the Jancosek Family posted on 9/10/18

I can hear it like it was yesterday from our window- my big teddy bear of a neighbor outside listening to his classic rock as he tinkered in the garage, cooked steaks on the grill, or argued with his crazy buddy Bandit. Doug had a heart of gold. He was family to us. He even taxied our kids around from school to work when they didn't yet have a car. He came and saw all our shows and cried like a proud papa when any of us did a good job. He and Karen went together like two kooky peas in a pod. I know how her heart hurts-ours too. We will always miss him but I know he is watching over us all-no longer hurting- once again able to do all his favorite things. All our love, Stacy, Mark, Helena and Cami.

Ann Zondor Hentschel posted on 9/9/18

A Diehard Cub’s Fan and So Much More Over 300,000 Cubs fans were at Wrigley on October 22, 2016 to celebrate the team heading to the World Series for the first time in 71 years. They each have their own stories about their dedication to the Chicago Cubs. Here is the story of one of those incredible diehard fans. Bob Zondor was a Cubs season ticket holder for over 30 years. Upon retirement he accepted the invitation to become an ambassador at Wrigley Field. The definition of ambassador is a person who acts as a promoter of a specified activity. Without question, Bob has actively promoted his beloved team, the Chicago Cubs, every chance he gets. You will find Bob usually working as an usher around the first base section. Young children will run up to him and wrap their arms around his legs in delight. Teens will happily give him a fist bump and shout, “Cubbies!” He will gladly share his story of sitting on the front porch with his dad listening to the Cubs game on the transistor radio to anyone interested. Bob recalls how a Cubs loss would spoil his father’s entire day. His enthusiasm for the Cubs is something he carries with him wherever he goes. As a waitress leads him to his table at a local restaurant he will pause to pass out a “Let’s Go Cubs” sticker to a fellow patron. At a store he will stop someone wearing a Cubs hat to thank him for being a fan and explain that he works for the Cubs. Somehow every person he stops to chat with about the Cubs walks away with a smile on their face. Here is the amazing part of this diehard Cub fans story. Bob will be 79 years old this December and has been living with Leukemia for the past five years. He has been known to schedule his chemo treatment early in the morning in order to work an evening game at Wrigley. The nursing staff keep a Cub’s calendar which they refer to as “Bob’s schedule” on their desk for planning his appointments. This summer his health seemed to be taking a turn for the worse. His white blood cell and platelet count were dangerously low. His first question to the oncologist was, “Can I still go to work at Wrigley?” After careful consideration it was determined that as long as he felt strong enough he could continue to work. The doctor believed being able to focus his mind on something positive was good for him. As Bob explains, “If I just sit at home all I do is worry about my health but as soon as I get in the car and head for Wrigley my spirits are lifted.” It is also true that for every loyal Cubs fan there is often a devoted partner. Bob’s wife packs a lunch for him to take to each home game. She stands at the door with a pit in her stomach as he drives off saying a quiet prayer that he make it to Wrigley and back safely. If it’s a night game, Bob leaves their home in Northwest Indiana in the early afternoon. He drives to Chinatown where he finds a free parking space. He then walks to the red line and takes the 30 minute train ride into Wrigley. After standing on his feet working as an usher for most of the game he then does the reverse commute arriving home often as late as midnight. In addition to a supportive wife, the staff at Wrigley field have been incredibly kind to Bob. They quietly make accommodations whenever they can for him. Little things like making sure he is the first to go on a lunch break so he doesn’t get too weak. Moving him over to the 3rd base side on those super-hot days so he does not have to be in the direct sun. And, dozens of other gestures of kindness that make it possible for him to work every home game. His story is truly inspiring. He will roll his sleeves up to have his blood drawn. His arms have huge black and blue marks where he has been poked and prodded so many times for blood tests. Bob will simply joke, “Now be careful. Save enough blood so I can get to Wrigley tonight.” Without a doubt if the Cubs are at home Bob Zondor will be there to cheer them on. Now, his dream is coming true. In his lifetime he will get to see the Cubs in the World Series. Thank-you Bob for being such a role model to those that know you, for being a champion ambassador for the Chicago Cubs, and for bringing the true spirit of baseball to life every day. And thank-you Chicago Cubs for fulfilling this man’s dream by taking us to the World Series. Sincerely, Ann Zondor Hentschel (Bob’s Daughter) Here is the link of the newspaper article: http://www.nwitimes.com/sports/baseball/professional/mlb/cubs/highland-s-bob-zondor-is-a-true-cubs-ambassador/article_0b580c8d-c0cb-590d-8e9a-e4b490a3dce5.html?utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=user-share

Tom Cak, my uncle, my godfather, godfather to our twin girls....and so very much more. Uncle Tom was a man of unfailing faith and kindness, integrity and humility, with an unmatched desire for learning and sharing with others. A man so passionate for his culture, his community, his church, his work and his family....you gave so much to us all. I will forever cherish your singing "Wake Up Little Susie" and making my sleepy, 6 year old, body dance with you in your effort to wake me for school, the "Dollar for a beer" you would give to me for lunch that would make me laugh, the time and care that you would take, each night, to practice Polish words with me or our time sitting watching A.L.F. together while we laughed at your analysis of the show and it's crazy content.....you loved A.L.F. more than I did! Your heart must be filled with joy and comfort, as is mine, that you're now able to smooch Aunt Barb, to sing and dance with her in the hallways again, to be next to your love. I know you missed her so much. We will all miss you but will always remember your brilliance in life and will feel your love that continues within us always. Susie, Josie & Allesia

My Great-Aunt Carolyn.... She went thru life with a warm smile and handled everything with grace. She was elegant and sophisticated but never pretentious. She always choose to see the good in people. She listened intently and spoke eloquently. She was the classiest most amazing women I had the honor of loving. She taught me so many things like how to present tea dinner party etiquette and the importance of a good martini with girlfriends. She just had a way about her, a manor with which she did things that is too rare to attempt to explain. She had inspiring unwavering faith. She was stubborn, particular and never ever wavered in struggles. She was so strong. She was giving and generous. She was simply, lovely. She was God’s replacement for both my grandma and grandpa I never met. She meant so so much to each of us and there will be a void in our hearts but we smile knowing shes hand in hand with her love, finally. I feel so blessed and privileged to know her and love her. We will miss you my dear sweet Aunt.

I'll never forget your hugs goodbye and the exact way you said I love you. Listening to your stories and the way you remembered every date and detail about that day. I'll miss the way you would sit holding your cup of coffee, just smiling as you watched the kids run around and play. I'm going to miss our visits, having lunch together and the funny little things you would say. Everytime I open our crazy Tupperware drawer i'll be reminded of your green bowl with your favorite bean salad in it. We aren't ready to say goodbye and we love you

The terrible snowstorm of 1967 offered Carolyn & I a memory we talked & laughed about over the years. I was sent out to buy milk but somehow got to Carolyn’s house instead. We both set out to get this milk but got a bottle of gin instead. We walked to the Pappas’ home & we all proceeded to have martinis. Eventually we walked back to Carolyn’s home & she reminded me about the milk. I was lucky to find a store open & did indeed get that milk. Carolyn & I have enjoyed martinis throughout our 56 year friendship including not too long ago. Each & every time I have a martini I will host you Carolyn. I sure hope you & Mac are enjoying them now. Rest easy dear friend. Love Patty

I just found out today about Mr. Fonzi passing. I want to tell his family and friends that this man gave me an opportunity at 15 years old to basically labor and maintain his business property in Gary and then hired me to dispatch through college. I was a troubled teen and not many people would have gave me the chance. He met me one time and said to hire me. The initial job was tough and very demanding. He always made sure I was paid well, disciplined, and treated the same as upper management. This man impacted my future by instilling a strong work ethic and respect. I truly wish I were there to meet his family. Thank you all for sharing him with me for that critical few years of my life. I truly feel he contributed to the person i am.

What a beautiful woman, Mrs. Gargas was. I am very sorry to read of your loss. With her accomplishments, her love and joys, she was an amazing woman. I won't pretend to know what you're going through, but what has helped me deal with the loss of those I love, is turning to the Scriptures, something that has been a real source of comfort. One Scripture that gives me hope is, John 11:25, which says, "Jesus said to her: “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life." I hope that this verse will also comfort you, and I hope you and your family can get through this difficult time. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your beloved wife, mother, grandma and friend. Sincerely, Meryl, jw.org - [email protected]

On behalf of Amy and our children - Ryan, Sean, Emma and Kate - we would like to express our condolences on the passing of Marge. She was a wonderful woman, and will be sorely missed. It was clear based on the devotion of her husband and children, that she was a great wife and mother. We will keep the entire Gargas family in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

 

Joan Carney posted on 8/16/18

Marge was a wonderful person. She was kind, considerate and always thought of everyone. She made me feel that I was part of her family once my daughter and her son got married. It was always delightful to see her every July 4th and other occasions during the year. Marge loved her husband, her children and her grand and great grand children. She will be missed by her friends and her family especially her son, Jim as he spent every Saturday with her.

Our sincere sympathy to the Gargas family. Heidi recalls the many exercises classes she attended with Margaret in South Holland. Our daughter Audrey Mitchell went to Thornwood HS. with Mary Lynn. Rest in peace, Margaret.

My family (Lizzie, Henry, Charlotte, I) want to convey our deepest sorrow for your loss. Margaret was a wonderfully kind, devoted mother to her kids/grandkids and to her husband. We had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know her over the past 15 - 20 years. She was very giving and conveyed a happiness that few can match. I want to wish Joe, her children and grandchildren my deepest condolences for their loss. I will be reminded of her smile and warmth which she has carried down to my family (Jim, Meghan and Brian). My thoughts and prayers are with all the Gargas’ during this challenging time.

Such a loss for the Savage cousins. We all loved being with Scott at our cousins’ reunion lunch every time we gathered. I loved spending time with Scott when I visited my sister in Dyer. We were blessed to have Scott live next door. When my Grands from California visited several years ago, Scott sent Spider-Man Christmas lights back with a grandson, and he still puts those lights on his little tree every year. (He’s 12 now.) May Scott find eternal peace and rest.

 

Barbara posted on 8/9/18

My deepest condolences to Scott’s family and friends. It is impossible to fathom that Scott has left us. He was my cousin for 66 years and my next door neighbor for 16 years. I can’t put into words how much Scott did for me on a daily basis. He was always there for me and I always felt so secure knowing he was next door. I miss him so much already and I only hope he knew how much he meant to me and my family and how much he was loved.

 

Hap Moore posted on 8/9/18

So sorry for your loss, Randy and Jeanne. You were able to count on Scott to help you do things. He will be missed. He would help Barb out by cutting her grass behind her fence.

While working at Macaroni Grill in FL, I became friends with his late son-in-law, Ted Owles(another wonderful person) and he would keep me up to date on him. He was very proud of his children, very humerous, and just a great person. He is missed.

To Chris & Family, I am so sorry for your loss. I am involved with St. Thomas More's Pastoral Care and had the opportunity to work with Pat when we volunteered at the Med Inn on Tuesdays.

Her goodness will certainly live on in all of you.

I grieve with you in her passing and celebrate the joy she brought to your life.

I worked on and off for over 20 years with Shannon and I will never forget how happy she always was. Even the night I saw her hand totally bandaged, she told the story about how it happened and ended up laughing about it. I don't think she knew how to ever be negative. She was one of the most upbeat nurses I ever knew. Rest well Shannon You will be missed

I worked with Shannon many years. She was a most loving nurse. Also a great advocate to animals. If ever I needed to ask about an injured bird, a found stray.. a wounded cat. I asked Shannon and she was happy to advise me. She loved animals.. Cherished her family, her patients, she will be missed by all. A simply beautiful woman inside and out. GOD'S newest ANGEL. R.I.P.

Arturo Florcruz posted on 7/8/18

I didn't know Shannon personally. My mother, Giovanna Florcruz, knew Shannon very well. Shannon talked to my Mother every day to make sure she was OK, even when my Mother moved to Texas 2 years ago. Shannon instinctively knew my Mother, who is 86, needed someone to watch over her. It's rare to find someone who is so giving and unselfish. My Mother and I will forever be grateful for Shannon's kindness, and we will never forget her. God Bless Shannon and her family.

Shannon was the most loving, kind, compassionate person God has ever put on this earth. Her passion for her profession was undeniable. Her love for animals and her hard work with animal rescue knew no bounds. All of us who worked with her in one way or another realize how truly special she was. Heaven has truly gained an angel. Prayers for Scott and her family. She loved all if you so much.

I hope this helps bring some comfort in this time of sorrow.

Juan had an engaging personality. Made you feel like you were part of his family. Always spoke dearly of his wife and how they set time apart to spend time with each other. He was crazy about his granddaughter and his family. He not only had an engaging personality, but he had a contagious belly aching laugh. It was a laughter that made you laugh without even knowing what you were laughing about. He will be missed not only as a co-worker, but as a friend and a brother.

Juan (as he was known at Amtrak) was very passionate about Amtrak, Politics, his home and Family. I first met Juan in the Chicago Debriefing Dept where he would turn in his paperwork for reconciliation after a trip. He loved to engage us in conversation, and would captivate everyone in his presence. Juan would tell us about his Family, cooking, his garden and his home projects. One day he was telling us about a delicious meal he had made Puerto Rican pork chops and rice. Well after that mouth watering description, we begged Juan to make it for us. To our surprise, he did!!!! Boy Oh Boy...... it was DELICIOUS!!!! Thanks Juan for the stories, the friendship and the garden fresh cilantro!!!! Rest In Heaven my friend!

What a beautiful woman. Leona was a breath of fresh air and always had a smile. I don't think she was capable of being negative....I never saw her frown, never saw her upset, she just moved full speed ahead with style and grace. She was an incredible spirit and since all of you posting or reading this knew her I think we can all agree, She was one of a kind....her personality was infectious and you couldn't help wanting to be around her, she made you a better person. She took very good care of herself and had style. She was intelligent and inspirational. She will be missed and Heaven definitely gained an angel. God Bless for sharing her with us.

 

Barbara Dzikowski posted on 5/21/18

Leona was a shining star, the brightest light in any room, a vibrant, elegant, and positive force. She gave 200% to everything she loved, whether it was her family, her friends, her faith, or her career. I am so lucky to have had her as a friend and co-worker, and my deepest sympathy goes to Paul and her wonderful family to whom she was utterly devoted. I picture her bursting into Heaven with her unforgettable smile wearing a big red hat. Godspeed, my friend.

It is with a saddened heart we learned of cousin Tim’s passing. His pleasant demeanor glowed with a fun sense of humor, laughter and a warm smile. His presence always emanated a genuine kindness.

Most of all he dearly loved his family for whom we pray will find some comfort knowing that he continues to watch over them.

I've worked with Perry for a lot of years. Even though he always had his hands full, he would take the time to try and help out. His job was extremely stressful, yet he always had that smirky grin, as if to say "yep, it's hard but i'm here, I only work 1/3 of my life, and I make sure the other 2/3 are "cool"". At least that's how I took it. He will be missed. God Bless his soul.

May she rest in peace and my heart goes out to the family!

Kevin truly knew how to lift a persons spirits. I remember one of the last conversations that we shared...It was a frustrating day for me, and within minutes he had me laughing and thinking positive about everything that happened that day. He was a great man, and a great friend. He reminded me to be grateful throughout the difficult moments of life, and reminded me how important it is to tell people you love and appreciate them.

Condolences to Moms, Audree, and John T. – I know Melissa was a special love to you. I only found out yesterday, and this karma-defying moment is heartbreaking. If I had to describe Melissa in five words or less, it would be to say that she was: A strong, motivated, good person. After high school, my tightest years with Melissa were back in the Mansard’s and Schererville apartment days when Melissa and John lived together. If memory serves, this particular incident occurred in the apartment at the Mansard’s apartment. I stayed late into the night countless times and would often crash there. This particular time, I ended up falling asleep on the floor. By morning, I was sleeping on my back. Melissa and John had a cat who was a young adult, but petite. Well, one of this cat’s idiosyncrasies was that, given the opportunity, it would curl up and sleep on your forehead. I was not aware of this until it actually happened. Thanks, guys! To say the least, it’s an uneasy feeling when you tell your head to move but it will not :P. I thought that I was either witnessing my own dream or paralyzed. Groggy, as we are when freshly awakened, it took a few more ineffective commands from me to head until I was aware enough to feel around with my hands, discovering that I had a cat sleeping comfortably on my head - not bothered by my attempts to get up, apparently. We shared a good laugh about that one over breakfast. We had some good times back then. We would swim, grill, snack on the blue couches while watching Comedy Central, take in the occasional movie at her mom’s where I would use one of her hounds as a pillow, and we would sit on the balcony late at night ignoring our past while talking about the future. In the last five years, she has been on my mind and I meant to get in contact with her, but did not. I thought we were only halfway through this ride. Condolences to family and friends. If Kish could leave the following address up, it would be appreciated. I don’t mind this email being published. John, if this information finds its way to you, ring me up when you have it in you: [email protected] RIP, Melissa, Damon

Joan and Family, We join with you in thanking God for the gift of Marty Collins. We know him, like you, Joan, as a positive, encouraging, very special person, who never said an unkind word to anyone. We remember fondly first meeting the "Collins Clan," playing double-deck pinochle with you and Phil and Carole Gulledge, as young parents. You are an exceptional couple, with a special talent for bringing people together to have fund, whether pool parties, Christmas parties, group camping get-togethers, or family celebrations. We treasure the video Marty took for our 25th Wedding Anniversary party. We remember fondly being at all the children's weddings. Mary, now a nurse, stayed with our teenagers, Keith, Tim, and Amy, when we too our six-week "honeymoon vacation" in 1981. Since we moved out into the country to Kouts fifteen years ago, we have not seen each other much. We miss you and think of you often. We will continue to pray for you, that you receive the consolation that God gives. God bless you. Spence and Carol Greer

I have fond memories of a generous woman dedicated to her family. I loved the dinners I got invited to; Jan was an excellent cook. She was such a welcoming person. So many will miss Mrs. Clark, but her legacy will live on through her adult children who she loved so much! Eternal rest grant to her, O Lord; and let light perpetual shine upon her.

I was just thinking of friends from years ago. Wondering about Gene and Mary, who were such wonderful, caring people. We moved to Ohio in 1970, but visited with your parents and the DeVores and Louise Mitchell. It seems All have passed away and are enjoying their reward in heaven. Not sure about Bob DeVore. Some of you will remember a trip together to National Guard Camp to visit with George and Father LaMere. Sending our love.

I'm so sorry for your family's loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. I personally know the loss of both a mother and grandmother, and the pain can seem overwhelming. However I found comfort in the Bible's promise for the future. Acts 24:15 speaks of a resurrection, a time when God will reunite us with our loved ones again! I hope this helps bring some comfort in this time of sorrow.

I am so sorry to hear about Mike's passing. He and my daughter Susan (Stinson) Wisecarver took horseback riding lessons together many years ago.

I remember Mike as a wonderful young man with a ready smile-someone to be proud of. You have my deepest condolences.

I was so sorry to hear about Mike's passing. I love hearing about my past students as they become adults...where their lives take them and the paths they choose. Mike sounds like he had a wonderful life doing what he loved. My heart goes out to the family and many friends he had. It is so hard to lose a loved one, but especially one so young and his life out in front of him. I remember him fondly, from his time at St. Tom's. Please know that you are all in my prayers as you go through this difficult time. I am going to try to come to his wake, but in case I could not make it in time, I wanted to leave this message.

I was a young teacher at Thornwood High School when Paul arrived. He immediately energized the band, and managed to demand and encourage excellence while caring for his students. I respected and liked him, and was thrilled when - years after I changed to another school - we connected on Facebook. In January I saw him comment about the flu...and learned today, February 8, of his passing one week ago. He was a good man and a great spirit; I am thankful for all the lives he was able to influence, and sad that I was unaware of the seriousness of his illness. Thank you Paul, for your model of faith, dedication, integrity, and professionalism.

I first met Bob Hawk when we were both 2 years old and realized we were next store neighbors. We grew up together, best of friends, playing ball, walking to school at Lanier school in Munster. His older brother Johnnie worked close to Hammond High School, so we rode to high school with Johnnie. Had a coffee and sweet roll at the Red Rooster and then to school. We were friends through school, started the Crescent City Jazz club at Hammond High, listens to hours and hours of Duke Ellington, Bix Beiderbeck and our mutual favorite Fats Waller. Bob was one of a kind, a real unique man.. I will miss him, I will miss him.

I am truly sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. I hope the Pacheco family will find some comfort and strength in Jesus promise of the earthly resurrection (John 5:28, 29) and the renewed Paradise earth, where death is an enemy (1 Corinthians 15:26) that will very soon be eliminated forever, and no family will mourn the death of a loved one (Revelation 21:4). This promise has been given by Almighty God Jehovah (Psalms 83:18). Truly, what a glorious and almost unbelievable day that will be! It's a reality though for God cannot lie (Titus 1:2).

Probably one of the most honest car guys I ever dealt with . With Jeff family came first and then ordering me a new truck was second. When in Vegas next year I will put money on the Cubs for you Jeff. See you on the other side my friend rest in peace. PS. I'll order a new truck when I get there.

Hers was September and mine was December. I will miss her smile and her caring sweetness. I loved just being with her. She was a true friend and miss her already. Love and hugs from Dianne Andel.

To The Koenig Family: It is not the same without Madeline. Memories of my times with her are spinning through my head. The earliest: Brooklyn, we both had our tonsils out on the same day in the same hospital. They put us in adjacent beds during our recovery. We were both towheads (blonds) and the staff thought we were twins. We were pretty good playmates. Madeline grew up to be a good looking girl and she and my sister Alice were buddies, if I can use the word. They were both secretaries for firms in NYCity. Madeline got me a summer job at her firm after my first year in college, so we rode the subway trains to and from work for about three months in the summer of 1948. I left home after college in 1951, got married in 1952. Madeline and Ed married the following year and we saw little of each other after that. After Ed died, we started weekly telephone calls that continued until she passed. We reminisced about growing up in Brooklyn and the good times with the rest of the family. She had a great sense of humor and we had lots of laughs. She was smart and we talked about many deep subjects. She had a great memory right up to the end. Two days before she died I called her up to wish her a Happy Thanksgiving and asked her what meal Mom served with red cabbage. She instantly replied "pot roast!". Madeline was a loving person and she freely gave her love to her family. They were every thing to her, and I know she was to them. My impressions of the family came late in life but you showed great cordiality to me when we met for Ed's funeral. We share the loss of Madeline - spouse of Ed, mother of you children, grandmother, and great-grandmother, and sister to the children of Joseph and Elizabeth. May she rest in peace. With love and affection Uncle Tom and Aunt Ruth, Chris and Linda Glasser, Ed and Anne(Glasser) Brennan

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.

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.

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.

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.

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….

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.

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.

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.

I am sorry for your loss. Dick was an amazing man with a great sense of humor. I enjoyed my time getting to know him and hearing his many stories. He was kind and I appreciate all of the things he did. He loved Lori and he would light up telling the stories of how they met. I will miss the smell of the pipe wafting through the neighborhood. My thoughts and prayers are with Lori and your family.

I knew Hec as a golfing buddy and friend. We traded family details and I came to believe I knew many of his family members. I was deeply saddened to hear of his passing. He will be missed not only by me, but many of our mutual friends. He was outgoing and friendly to all. I pray God will give each of the family his peace and grace.

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

Lottie was an incredible aunt who always stayed close in heart to all of her family. I loved my frequent phone calls with her every Sunday. She was a woman of great faith and held her friends family close to her heart through prayer. The Serenity Prayer was a favorite she shared with me every time we talked. With a wonderful sense of humor, she loved hearing funny stories about her grand nieces and of her great nieces and nephews! One of her lasting gifts to family and friends was sharing her baking skills. She was an incredible aunt, sister,shopper, baker and truly one of Gods finest. We love you! Jan

Mr. Stookeys' enthusiasm was contagious, I've never forgotten his pale spring tuxedos and directorial theatrics! His memory warms my heart!❤️ RIP

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

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.

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.

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

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 a fabulously caring pediatrician to me from birth to maturity. He was the 1st man I ever knew with a Southern Accent, which made him even more disarming. What a wonderful man, doctor and member of our community! <3

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 remember actually the feeling of relief knowing when Dr. Morris was the one we saw. He was truly the Mister Rogers of medicine. 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.

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.

My deepest sympathies to this wonderful family- Dr. Morris was an amazing person. We never understood why kids were scared of the doctor growing up- we didn't even look at it like going to the doctor- we were going to visit Dr. Morris who was awesome!!! Such an awesome person and a great family. My prayers are with you.

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

I'm so sorry to hear of Dr. Morris' passing. He was a wonderful pediatrician. I took my daughters to him in the 80's and we all loved him. We always waited a long time while we were there, but he always apologized, you knew he was sincere, and you couldn't be upset. He was just wonderful.

He was an exceptional man & we will greatly miss his smiling face. They say there are angels here, on earth. We feel honored to have known one.

 

Cynthia Mazur Lorentzen posted on 6/8/17

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!!!

Dr. Morris was truly the kindest, most dedicated, most genuine, and most respectful doctor I have ever known. Once he asked me if it would be OK if he called me at 7 the next morning to check on my son. We were so honored and fortunate to have him as pediatrician for both our children. God bless him! Margaret and Jim McNabney

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

My golden star in now in heaven. I miss her every second of every minute she is not with me. She was my one and only, my light in the dark, my joy in sadness. She was not just my wife, she was my best friend in every way possible. She was my rock, if it wasn't for her I would not be the person I am. She was an awesome mother to our kids. I love her with every piece of my soul. Heaven has gained another golden angel, that will make it brighter then every before. I LOVE YOU TRACY.

My heart is broken. My favorite memory of Cathie is seeing her happiness grow as her love for Roger grew. She had been so devastated over the loss of Randy, and it was wonderful for her to find that she could find happiness again. And I know that Roger experienced that same happiness. Watching the Jacobs and Billhardt families embrace each other was just a joy. And now I send you all my love.

Nancy was always so caring of others, as far back as when we were 8 yrs old.

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.

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

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.

We'll always remember the family tailgate and Sox games. And, of course, the great Halloween parties, especially when Jim dressed as Moses and trick-or-treated at the St. Jude Rectory. Good Times! Good Memories! Great Family!

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." It's been 15 years and I still forget he's gone. I am so sorry for your loss and I wish you the peace of time and the joy of memories.

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!

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.

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.

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!

I still make her delicious italian beef and always think of her as I do. I'll miss our encounters at Meijer as I would often run into her when shopping and she always had a hug for me. I'll miss her along with you. Love, Annette Narvid-David

My deepest sympathy for Barb, Chip, Carolynn, William, and Becky. Friends like Steve never leave your heart, even if they leave your life. Steve and I started in public accounting together at Crowe Chizek with a vibrant group of graduates who are still friends thirty years later. On the occasion Steve and I touched base, it was like we were still coworkers and office mates. Despite his demanding career, he was always smiling, always joking – at least with me. God bless you friend. [tears…]

May God bless the Andrews family in this very trying time. Steve was a man with a genuine heart and a smile once seen..would never be forgotten. To say Steve will be missed is a gross understatement.

I remember Idie as this doting mother and grandmother who only wanted to make you happy when you came to her home (which was often). I know she was also very dedicated to Sisterhood at Kneseth Israel, spending so much time in the kitchen preparing food. My deepest sympathy on the family's profound loss, especially to Marilyn, who was such an important part of my life in Munster and at IU. May Idie rest in peace and may her memory be for a blessing.

I met Ms. Betty a year ago while working at Munster Med Inn. Betty instantly became one of my favorite residents, I loved how she would sing to me and another employee You are my sunshine as we sat with her looking at the fish in the main dining room, which she loved to do. I loved listening to her stories. Betty will be missed very much, she will always have a special place in my heart.

Six boys that have all grown to be good men. Mike Watson left this tremendous legacy that was built from love and at times tough love that only a father can do. He did a great job here on earth and will be missed, but you all will carry a piece of him in all that you do. We pray Lord, for those who have died and have gone before us heaven marked with the sign of faith, especially Mike Watson for whome we offer prayers. May he be granted eternal rest in your name Christ, Jesus. God bless the Watson family.

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.

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? :). Love Niel Risley and family.

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 am a neighbor of Paul's and live on the second block. Paul was a private person and we did not talk very much but when the top half of my tree came down during a storm, he was one of the first neighbors out there in the rain cutting up the tree so it could be hauled away. I will always remember that and thanked him profusely for his help. He was a good neighbor to have and I'm sorry I didn't know him better.

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. We felt like we knew him just from these stories. He helped our son feel more comfortable with the stress of a new school and finding new friends. Thank you for him!

When I was in ICU, after my skiing accident, Melinda was one of the first persons to check on me assuring me everything was going to be okay. I also remember the times your family vacationed in Orlando and the special dinners we had! I will be praying for all of you during the difficult time.

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.

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.

Randy was by far the best supervisor I ever worked for. It was to bad Western Electric did not have more like him. Maybe W.E. would still be around. 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.

She was the runt of the litter. Virginia still lived in Beverly at the time. I have so many wonderful memories of Virginia. I think she was The Best Teacher I Ever Had. I know she had to be an amazing Mom and Grandmother. I hope you find comfort in your memories of her until you are together again.

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.

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.

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.

So many childhood memories of cousin, Mickey, to us. We always spent Thanksgiving at their house and Christmas Eve with our Grandma Isaacson.. Mickey was always making us laugh. I'll always remember how handsome he looked walking Amy down the aisle on that hit day in Raleigh. I'll always love him. My heart goes out to Joanie , Brian,Amy and Ralph.

Steve and Tricia White posted on 12/1/15

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]

Doris Almaraz posted on 11/18/15

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.

Mrs. Blocher inspired me to teach. Every time I use the word 'courteous' I think of her because it was the first Word of the Week in 1st grade. 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."

Hold those fond memories close to your heart.

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?

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

Pam & family, What a wonderful lifetime of memories you have had with Richard! He and you were so gracious welcoming me into your home when I stayed for your art retreats. I will never forget the generosity and artful times; eating Chicago pizza, listen to Richard's stories and music, going to the old time theater, riding in on a train & limousine to shop in Chicago, and being able to share with such a loving family devoted to their children and each other. These things will always remain. Know that you are not alone, let your friends and family comfort you. God works in mysterious ways but there is always a reason for things we don't understand. Pam, I suggest you make a special book, in memory of Richard.

I would like to express my sincere condolences to you, Dick’s family. When we started to create one global R&D, of the former Arcelor and Mittal labs, Dick was one of the driving forces to get us really together. He was very open-minded and started immediately to let us become direct colleagues. I appreciated a lot. I am very sad to learn about this terrible accident. I wish to you, family and friends from Dick, all the best; and happy moments after the grief, I think he would have liked it.

Debanshu Bhattacharya posted on 10/14/15

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.

 

Carlos Espina posted on 10/14/15

All my condolences, from deep in my heart. I met Dick at the time we merge to create ArcelorMittal back in 2006. We spend a lot of time together. I admired his technical background, as his commitment to innovation. But moreover, I admired his simple human side.

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! Prayers to all of Linda's friends and relatives. Marlene Lichtle [email protected] DKG member

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.

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 a student of Ms. Luttringer and still remember how she fostered my creativity in Mass Media class. Her influence as a visual artist can still be seen in my life and vocation today. Yes, teachers, you DO make a difference!

So sorry to hear of Linda's passing. We met in the Hammond School District and continued our association in the DKG sorority. She will be greatly missed. She had such a tremendously positive outlook on life she brightened every place she was.

I was a student of hers,she gave me confidence in expressing my feelings in writing and loving the community that is NW Indiana thru the stories of Jean Shepard. She called me her "delightfully cynical comedian" She gave the gift of knowledge to many of us. I mourn her passing; the Earth does not glow as brightly now.

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.

Linda, you were taken way too soon, but the legacy you left behind will be remembered for ever. You were my "Warrior Sista" and for that I will be forever grateful. My heart breaks and I will miss you. I am so fortunate I got got to really know you after you retired. Just know you had s tremendous impact on my life. I love you.

Deepest condolences, Jim. You and Joan shared a special place in Tootsie's heart. You truly were special to her - both while growing up in the same family as well as in later years. Your sadness is shared by so many whose lives were touched by Joan's gracious smile and radiant warmth, May you and your family be blessed and find peace in your precious memories. She is with you still and never will leave.

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.

I have no words to sufficiently express my sorrow. My heart aches for your loss. How can this be? Our kids are supposed to outlive us. 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.
