I remember when I was little going to church and I would look for him when praise and worship was starting just so I can see him dance because he had the best moves in my eyes.

I only spoke with Mrs Adrienne Fry a handful of times on trips she made to Cleveland, but I will always remember her as an extremely warm, welcoming and greatful person. She was always interested in asking about how others were doing. And she always gave warm and genuine compliments to others. She was kind, loving towards others and you could just tell the love she had towards family also! I know she will be missed by many, but also know that her legacy lives on in the lives of her children and grandchildren as they exhibit that same Christ like love towards others. I am praying for the entire family during this time of loss!

My sisters and I are so sad to have lost our beloved Aunt Frances. As Herbie says, it was always a comfort to talk to her. She was one of those people who was always there for you when you needed her. While we may not have agreed on every political issue, there was never any doubt about the love in her heart for her family and everyone else in her life. I especially cherished the memories she shared of growing up with my father (her brother, “Butch”), Aunt Mary, and their brothers. Her death is such an untimely loss to so many—they must have sorely needed another angel up in heaven.

 

Stacey posted on 10/13/19

Aunt Frances was a source of inspiration and encouragement to me. We shared a birthday, many laughs and much love. I like many, miss her. She is forever in my heart. With much love, Her niece, Stacey Norris McMahon Daughter of Earl “Butch” Norris

Connie was the biggest and best part of Lee School. She always had a smile on her face and was very welcoming and kind to everyone. If you had a question and she didn’t know the answer, she would make a point to find out and get back to you. She will be greatly missed. My heart and prayers go out to her family and loved ones. May God be with you.

 

Cheryl VanEtten posted on 10/8/19

I knew Jim from the post office & being our union president for a few years. He knew his stuff & told it like it was. He didn't sugar coat it & sometimes it wasn't what you wanted to hear. When the Cook St. Post Office was in jeopardy of closing 6 years ago, he was instrumental in helping to keep it open. Rest east Jim, you'll be missed by many. But you will only be a thought away.

Ron was a consummate professional who practiced the art of lobbying the old fashion way -- with total integrity. He was well respected by all. It was a real pleasure to have part of the API field operations family. May he rest in peace.

I remember Pat as we served on a Cursillo team several years so. We didn’t cross paths too many times after that but I really enjoyed our team building time and serving together. She was very delightful. I know she is with God and I pray for peace for you, her family.

 

David Sykuta posted on 10/6/19

Marcia and I send our deepest sympathies on the passing of Ron (Sam). Our sympathies also go to his wife Patty, who cared so well for him and his sons Matt and Kurt. I was fortunate to have Ron work for me as Associate Director of the Illinois Petroleum Council for 20 years and I knew him as a fellow lobbyist for much longer than that. what a first class person Ron was. A real class act. We shared many Legislative and golf adventures together. Ron was one of the most respected lobbyists under the Statehouse Dome, and did a great job in a challenging environment. He also always kept his sense of humor and an even keel. He handled his medical challenges with the same determination that marked his whole career. Rest well Ron. You deserve it. David and Marcia Sykuta

Bill, Jane, Jesse...and families---Sending my condolences. I have known Georgia since 1953. We met by riding the Greyhound bus home on weekends. After we were married and stayed home to be full time moms, we ended up living a block apart in Jerome. Later Bill was my paperboy; my son subbed for him when he broke or sprained his ankle. I don't remember who moved from Jerome first, but it wasn't too far apart. I left in 2004. Jesse was in my granddaughter Jennifer's class in grade school and they are still in touch with several classmates. Be thankful for the wonderful memories you have including Dad/G'pa Ron. He was fun too. Georgia and I had a lot of laughs over the years, and I will always remember her.

My thoughts and prayers to the Barr family. I remember a family reunion he and Sherri attended at our home and our Australian shepherd kept trying to herd him to the group and he had reached up and pinched his behind a couple times, with that ever so beautiful smile he said " I got more bites here then I did at the lake today" I was so embarrassed but he brushed it off and we all had a good time. I wish I could be there Sheri, but I recently moved to Florida to help my dad but my phone is on 24/7 if ya need anything. God Speed Wes, we were blessed to have you in our lives you touched so many, you sir made a difference thank you.

Mike Jennings ISP-retired posted on 10/4/19

Wes was one of a kind. I had the opportunity to socialize and work from time to time with Wes. He was above and beyond the expectations of any law enforcement has when they hire a new officer. Wes was caring and giving and always professional. His good deeds were recognized in the polling booth and the kid from " the Bricks" fulfilled his highest aspiration in his career. Sheriff Wes Bahr earned everything he ever got. My hope is that all the love and caring he showed will be shown to his grieving wife and family by the community he dedicated his life to serving. Stand at ease, Marine, you did your duty.

 

Glenda (Graham) Thompson posted on 10/4/19

Dear Shirley and family , my heart goes out to you for your loss. I remember Bob as a kind and gentle soul and this picture shows that spirit through his smile. A patriarch of a wonderful family.

What a great Veteran and Law Enforcement Officer Wes was, along with being my friend for many, many years. I first met Wes at a Crime Scene when he was, I believe interning at the Sheriff's Office. I was on the Springfield PD at the time and saw something in that young face that showed a lot of caring and honesty, which what Wes was all about. I enjoyed my time with him when he was my "boss" at the Sheriff's Office. I also spent a lot of time with him at The American Legion, where he worked hard for our sister and brother Veterans. I will miss him a lot. My thoughts and prayers are with his wonderful wife Sherry and his entire family. We have all lost a Great Man and me a GREAT FRIEND!

I have worked much of my life to save ancient, champion, and rare trees. Often I need help from other certified arborists who have skills or equipment I lack or who are physically able to do things I can no longer do. While I try to spread that volunteer work around, no one has done more to help me than Sam. He has offered his talents and time, his equipment, and sometimes even his crew to save trees such as the Ann Rutledge Tuliptee, the Wayside Haw, the Kirby Cemetery Blackjack Oak, the Oak Ridge Cottonwood (largest tree in Springfield), and others. I will miss him, and the trees will miss him.

 

Ron & Alvera Knox posted on 10/1/19

Dear Jodie and family, We were stunned and deeply saddened to learn of Sam's passing. It was always a pleasure to work with Sam on the spraying and pruning of trees in our yard. His work was always excellent and we trusted his advice implicitly. We can hear his voice yet in the phone messages he would leave saying he was on his way to perform a service in our yard. We will miss him greatly. Our thoughts are with you and your family at this difficult time and we send our deepest sympathy. Ron & Alvera Knox

I met Connie's brother Robert in 1981 and I felt part of the family immediately. There are so many memories of summer visits at Catawba, Thanksgivings in Medina, when we also celebrated Christmas. At all of these occasions, SHOPPING was a very important event. I loved talking with her about life, family, and faith. She did so many things for her family; I don't know how she did it all. She is the most amazing woman I have ever known.

Jodie - Thinking of you and your boys after hearing of Sam's passing. Remembering when we all had little boys and ours watched Sam scale the tree behind our deck...and cut it down while in it! He was amazing in so many ways...and your skills complemented his so well. What an incredible partnership! Sending love and light to you and your sons. He lives on in them.

Greenie is my husband's cousin and I was privilege to be able to be his friend. We spent a lot of time together in the Lauder General Tire Store doing front end alignments and he put on tires and we picked up tools. I remember one really bad day I had in the winter when I was a sub rural mail carrier in Rushville , IL. He took me in his truck and it was so frigid that his corroborator froze up. He was so brave and such a trooper, always ready to help, Thanks Greenie for all the memories.

I have so many wonderful childhood memories of Mr. Laurent. Bobby, Kevin and Todd were very dear friends while growing up. They lived across the alley from us. They were next door neighbors with my grandparents on the east and my great-aunt on the west. Mr. Laurent was very good to my grandparents helping them with anything he could and also helped out my Aunt Grace. Though she could be quite difficult to deal with sometimes, he was always forgiving. I can remember him practicing archery in his backyard and being very good at it. He was always very patient with us kids which wasn't always easy. Remembering the big tomato fight for example. He was one of a kind and all the Loew' s will miss him. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Mrs. Audi was a wonderful teacher - she cared for all of her students. She expected a lot from her students but was always willing to give extra time to a student. Ursuline Academy was lucky to have her - as were all of us who had her for our math teacher. Even better as a study hall teacher - she would walk around and help those who were trying to finish math homework whether you were in her class or not. Thank you Mrs. Audi - rest in peace.

Mrs. Audi was an excellent teacher -- strict, but also wonderfully kind. It's hard to even imagine the total impact of all her years of teaching.

The Maxwell family were members of our church when I was growing up. When my father passed away my senior year in college, Glenn was always there for advice and counsel. Many time I would come over to their house and talk with them in their cozy family room. This continued all thru law school and my early years practicing law. His kindness and strong moral compass helped shape me as a person and in my professional dealings. He was the real deal in every way. Glenn left an indelible mark on the lives of all who were fortunate enough to know him.

We will miss him dearly. But, are so blessed to have been a part of his family for all these years. Such a Cardinals fan, we enjoyed many post season games cheering them on. He must be calling the plays now—beating the Cubs 4 straight. We will always love you, Uncle Glenn. We have faith knowing you are resting with all of our loved ones now.

Art and his family were our neighbors on East Converse for many years. I was much younger than Art and I never really knew much about him or his adult life after leaving home.

I'm sure his family is very proud. Rest in peace, Art.

My heart goes out to the Kilbourne family in the loss of your beloved Lee. I worked in the same department with Lee from 1960 thru 1968. I was secretary to the Consolidated Industrial Relations Officer. Lee headed the Training Division in our department. I was 18 years old in 1960. So many years have passed, but I still remember how very much I enjoyed our friendship. He was such a kind and gentle person who really cared for everyone. He would bring a smile to everyone's face when he came into our office. I'll always remember how deeply faith-filled he was and how important his Catholic faith was to him and as much as my Catholic faith means to me. May Lee and his precious Marge rest in eternal peace. God's blessings to the whole Kilbourne family.

It's rare that you meet somebody who faithfully walks the talk. Uncle Lee was one of those people, a huge breath of fresh air in whatever room he happened to be in. Some of my fondest memories of family prominently include Uncle Lee and Aunt Marge. On the back of the address cards that they would hand out to folks it read: "Preach the Gospel at all times and, if necessary, use words." We are all better people for having known him and the positive influences that eminated from him at all times.

Dorothy (and Joe) was neighbors and friends to my parents, Mart and Kay Woerly in Macomb, Illinois. I attended Saint Pauls grade school with David. Dorothy and my mother was our room-parents at school. I remember Dorothy and Joe having a German Shepherd. David used to try to intimidate me and my sisters with the German Shepherd. My prayers and thoughts are with Dorothy's family. Blessings to you all.

Many memories but most of all were the ones for a short time when I was working for him for a short time. Watching his absolutely stunning skills going thru laying out the graphics on a Funny car body and applying the Kandy colors (Yes Kandy) were absolutely amazing. I have been this business since 1978 professionally and there are only two people I know in Springfield of anywhere else that should be in some sorts of a "Hall of Fame" and that's Ernie Ball and Robert " Pinky" Williams. Im positive they are both in Gods shop working on a project that will be directed thru some young man/woman's hands and turned into the next generation of Artists. I have by no means the talent they had no mater my accolades, but I did pay attention and do my best. These two men were friends and legends. And always will be. Miss you both and I hope you joke about me in Heaven when I arrive!

Katie, Martha and Nick, and all the family: Please accept our condolences on Helen's passing; she was a truly inspirational woman and her faith in God was rock solid. No matter how she felt, she always had a smile and best wishes for me and my family; Helen was one of the few people when I first came to Cathedral that truly welcomed me and my family. She has always made me feel as if we truly were part of the community. I will not be able to be with you all at her Mass, but know that she (and all of you) will be in our thoughts and prayers. While my heart truly grieves at her passing, I know that she always rested strongly in her faith. May the choirs of angels come to greet her and escort her to Paradise; may she now and forever enjoy the heavenly banquet; may she be at peace as promised in her Baptism, and may her memory be eternal. All our love and prayers for all of you.

I have so many great times to remember, lots of late nights in the shop getting the van ready for the ISCA shows. I learned so much from you and you were always willing to show me things. Over the years life happened and we kinda drifted apart. But when we seen each other it always started with a big hug and then time to catch up. I am so glad we got to make that Steak n Shake run a few weeks ago. And so glad to be welcomed into your birthday party. Rest in Peace my good friend, I love you buddy! Always your friend, Dino

Mr. Niehaus was my first band teacher. He was my director when I was a 6th grader at Dubois ES and 8th grader at Grant MS. During the summers when I was in high school and college, I performed with Mr. Niehaus in the Springfield Municipal Band. He was a very fine teacher and excellent musician and we spoke a lot about his experiences performing with the Illinois Symphony Orchestra. He was very influential on me as a music teacher, and am proud to have been one of his students. I extend my condolences to his entire family and am very saddened to learn about his recent passing. He was a terrific teacher and human and will be extremely missed.

They both were so proud of their kids. Whenever I saw Bob, he always asked about all of us - and would always say "no shit" no matter what I said. The Sponslers are the best - no shit!

Virginia & Lisa, I am very sorry for your loss. George was a wonderful person who put his heart into everything he did. He was our chief steward of IBEW 399 and i was proud to serve with George on the board of Springfield Bell Credit Union. He was a very generous and caring person.

My wife and I were saddened to read about Larry's death. He was a wonderful person, and a kind, caring and talented teacher. There has to be a special place in heaven for all the sour notes he has listened to over the years. No matter what he started with, by the end of the year we had a pretty good band. I remember sharing with the staff the incident that occurred at the horse show at the Coliseum during the State Fair. Larry was playing his trombone with other musicians on a small platform in the center of the ring. Well, Larry scooted his chair and fell backwards off the platform, into a bunch of potted plants. Luckily, he wasn't hurt. I couldn't help but tease him about it, and he was a good sport. Our school studied a unit on the 1940's. Larry organized his friends and we had a school dance with the big band sound. It was fantastic. I am sure that was a once in a lifetime experience for most of those students. We are going to miss Larry. He had a wonderful smile, and was a good man.

Sorry to hear Larry's passing that will be a great loss. I always enjoy Larry through the years. He always made me Laugh and a hug.

Sorry to hear about Larry. I worked with him for several years and enjoy being around this crazy guy. Always Enjoyed him whenever I saw him playing.

The world has lost a wonderful teacher, musician and man. I ran into Mr. Niehaus just a couple of years ago and he was just as warm, gentle and kind as he ever was - and, after all these years, he asked me if I still played my clarinet. ❤

I had yisited Nancy and Jorge in Illinois to help take care of her,when she had a bad shoulder, and Jorge needed to make a trip back to Arizona, unfortunately I fell down there stairs and broke my ankle. I had to stay longer then planed,so I could see the doctor, poor Jorge came home,and had to take care of both of us. I loved her,and will miss her terribly.

He loves helping children, his work for Shrine Hospitals, the Children's Dyslexia Center of Springfield and the all the other charities that masonry helps will live on in their lives. John's passion was honoring our late brothers in the Feast of the Paschal Lamb. His attention to detail and perfection in the ceremony for our family members was second to none.

I like to give my condolences to you and your family. It is my hope that you will find comfort in the memories of your love one that will carry you through the years to come. The hope God gives in his Word the Bible can be a source of great comfort. In the Bible book of Acts 24:25 and John 5:28, 29 we have a sure promise that we can see our love ones again.

Lance, Theresa, and Carl My heartfelt condolences to all of you on the loss of Amie. She had an enormously ‘giving’ personality and gave comfort not only to many victims of crime across the US, but to her coworkers as well. I will cherish the times we spent together driving to towns for our human trafficking presentations and a week spent in DC. She consistently put others’ needs before her own. This past year during every contact we had, she asked about my Mom, who also is fighting cancer, and offered upbeat words of encouragement. I will miss Amie and that extremely rare characteristic she possessed: a heart of gold. Mary Kay

I’m very sorry to read the passing of your beloved Dale. Please accept my sincere condolences. I have personally felt comforted by the promise made by God of bringing back to life those who sleep in death (1 Thes. 4:14). So be assured that you’ll be able to hug, kiss and talk to Dale again. He will come back into an Earth free of suffering, sickness and anything that causes us to shed tears of pain (Rev. 21:4). This hope is both sure and firm because Jehovah God cannot lie (Heb. 6:18; Titus 1:2). Is my sincere desire that you can also find comfort in this words during this difficult time for you.

Alice, Patrick, Katie and Family, Please accept my sincerest sympathies for your loss. I have known Pat since he was this little red headed kid that always seem to show up at the Oldani household on St. Francis Drive when I visited my aunt, uncle and cousins. Unfortunately for me, I never really got to know Pat until these past few years, when we got paired together in our golf group at The Rail. The golf always seemed more fun when he was in our foursome. I think The Bartletti/Stotler Group probably all feel cheated because Pat left us far too soon and the void Pat leaves our group will never be filled. Driving into the parking lot at The Rail will forever give me a feeling of sadness knowing that our friend will not be joining us. We having a saying in our family, “Leave wanting for more.” Well, Pat definitely left everyone who knew him “Wanting for more.” You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Alice & Family. I am saddened at the passing of my friend Pat. We go back to our days of Baseball as kids but didn't get close until later in life through golf. He was absolutely the nicest guy in our golf group even though he teased me nonstop. He and I won the Inaugural Rail Senior Scramble a few years ago. Something I won't forget. I already miss him strolling up the walk, smiling and asking me if I always wear my pajamas golfing. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.

Pat, you will be so missed. Without question you stepped up to the plate and took over the father role when we lost dad. Mom was proud of you and all you accomplished. You were always their when your siblings needed you. In your own quiet way we new how much you loved us. You were a very humble person, helping others with no expectations in return. It took a very special person to take his sister to the father daughter dance while you were a senior in high school (Luckily it stayed out of the yearbook!) I love you so much and will miss you deeply. You made a great father figure and it carried over to your children.

My deepest condolences to Alice, Katie, Patrick and all of the Londrigan family. He left us much too soon. Oh my Friend, I could have never conceived that our lunch last month would be our final time to share laughter, stories of family and all of our future hopes. Had I even the slightest thought of it, I would have told you what a great friend you have been from our time together on the Sheriff’s Department to that very moment. But I hope that even without it being said, you knew it as I always knew it from you. Since learning of your passing last Saturday, I have been caught in a state of disbelief, tears and the occasional smile as I remembered our times together and all of the humorous text messages that went back and forth. I shall forever miss your classic assessment of my existence. No one will ever be able to summarize my life so concisely or so humorously. And I shall always miss your intentionally late birthday calls when you would call and say, “Hey, Did you have a birthday last week?” I would reply, “Oh, How kind of you to remember.” I shall always carry the half of the dollar bill you tore and gave to me when I was complaining about always getting stuck with the odd penny when the dinner bill was divided. Though always a little sad, I will smile at the memory of our times together, the laughter and our embellished police stories. Although we cannot make new memories, I know that good friends and good friendships are truly forever. I have read that the word “Good-Bye” is the shortened version of an Old English saying spoken at the time when friends were parting which was “God-By-Ye.” So, God-By-Ye, my Friend, until we meet again. Journey Well Always, Pat. The pleasure of your company was all ours. Dennis

Charlie was born to serve, born during WWII at an army hospital in Camp Carson Colorado Springs, Co. Charlie served his country, his state, his city, his community, his friends and most importantly his family. Charlie's hard working, caring, thoughtfulness and unselfishly giving was his strength. My heart was broken when I lost the love of my life when Mary passed this last January, Charlie was there to get me through, now my heart has been ripped out. Love you brother

Dear Palazzolo family. We are deeply saddened to hear of Charlie’s untimely passing. We arrived in Springfield 36 years ago. He was one of the first people I met at the Springfield Police Department. He was a mentor and true friend. We weathered many storms at the SPD and SOS Police. Charlie was always the first to say “I’ll take care of it.” (At the PD) — or—“I’ll give you a hand” (At your house). He was truly a stalwart of the Italian community; known here and throughout the state. We will miss him. Rest In Peace my friend — you earned it and you deserve it. God just picked up another great assistant!

I first met Mark over 30 years ago when he maintained our many plants at the old INB. In recent years he took great care of plants at my home. I had just talked with him last Tuesday about needed work, which he planned to do. Needless to say, I was shocked and saddened to learn of his death. My sincere condolences to Mark's mom, his daughters and all of his family.

I’m glad you said he was the plant man! He was our plant man at Garrett Aviation in the late 1990’s. I always enjoyed visiting with him. He was always smiling and friendly. May he rest in peace

Leigh I’m so sorry. I can’t feel your exact pain but I can feel a pain of your loved one being gone. I loved Bradley so much. I will never forget the day you told me you were pregnant with him or the day you brought him home. The first time I held him and changed his shity diaper. I had so many first with him and he never really got to know any of them because we were busy with this thing called life and now all I can do is wish I could turn back time and let him know how important he was. Anthony also even though he hated when anyone would walk in the door he cried until we played for a while he had to warm up but by that time I was about to leave. If you need me please don’t hesitate to call me I am down the street. I love you and I hope you know that.

Dear Irmgard and Brian, I am very sorry for your loss. I treasure the beautiful red rose wooden carving that your husband (Dad) gave my Dad to give to me. He was so gifted and smart and a nice man. I had such a wonderful time growing up because you Irmgard, Willy, and Brian were my neighbors. All the other relatives besides my German Papa and his sister were Italian, and I really enjoyed having German neighbors who reminded me and made me happy of my German heritage also. May God and Jesus eternally bless Willy, you and your family (2 grandchildren/children, excellent!). Sincerely, Dr. Gretchen Becker

If you met Harold once, you never forgot that fiery teddy bear. I sure haven't. Met Harold&Juanita in 1995 on a sales call to their home. We ended up not talking business and instead they just told me stories - and somehow we started talking about Dale. They told me the story of being at home the day they found out Dale had died...it was nighttime..they were grieving for Dale and asking God just to let them know everything was all right. Within a few seconds, the phone rang half of a ring and the house lights flashed as well. They got the message that Dale was just fine. Better than fine. And so it is with Juanita&Harold. Today...they are just fine. Better than fine!! I'll never forget you, my good buddies. Until we meet again... Love, ~Kevin

My Dad was one of the hardest working men and the best Dad ever. He worked construction for over 40 years and was sec/treasurer for the local Bricklayers Union for years also. He always made sure we had everything he needed, even when he had to go without things himself. He served his country in the United States Air Force in the Air Police K-9 Division and was stationed in Okinawa Japan and Montana. We lost not only a great Father, he was a great Husband to our Mother Judy, an awesome Grandfather to Mickey and Kaeli, and an all around great guy! Rest In Peace Dad, we love you and miss you already!

While serving as a Missionary Volunteer at the Mission Center earlier this year, I remember Brad coming by often and sharing how he was doing some Uber driving and the folks he was taking where ever they needed to be. He seem to be enjoying that and was so surprised by one customer who gave him a rather generous tip. He even tried to give some of it back. On the last day I serving there and celebrating, a bit early, my birthday, he called me beautiful---which I thought was a bit of an exaggeration, but he was smiling and seemed quite sincere. I remember sharing a couple of hugs and well, now..........I wish him much peace. God has taken in a great young person into his family and may he know that we all enjoyed him or loved him. And may Brad be free finally of all of his health issues now and enjoy his heavenly life. We will miss him, there is no doubt about that. Thanks for little talks and thanks for keeping the smiles going. Here is one more hug for you [ooooooooooooooooo].

When I introduced Floyd to my mother I had no idea they would end up sharing 19 years together. I actually harassed him and teased him so much I thought he would run! It became our mantra and if I didn’t tease him he would pick at me ...he was a good man and husband to my mother! After she passed I continued to be his steady form of harassment and company. His farm stories and parenting stories were a ritual and I will miss them...I rode more John Deere’s in my mind than can ever be imagined! Thanks for being there Floyd and I will miss our FridAy fish dinners or you asking when I cooked ...”what is this?” RIP and fly with the Angels...or read in the farmlands on your tractor

As she was growing up, our cousin George often called Kathy Jo his little angel. She had such a sweet personality and was always smiling. Sadly, I haven't had much contact with Kathy as adult, but I know she gave and received much love from her extremely close family and her many good friends. Now, after her years of battling health issues which she fought with such spirit, George has most sadly had to hand his dearest angel Kathy Jo to the Lord's care to be amongst his other angels. She will be so missed.

He could always bring a smile to your face when he was around. Jack was a blessing to all who knew him. He will be greatly missed! May the Lord comfort you all as you go through this difficult time. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

I believe I met Mrs. Harmony only once: when her daughter Rita died. I am privileged to know two of her children, Rita and David. These have been fine individuals and surely represent a fine mother. My sincerest condolences go to David and the rest of Ann' s family. A conflict prevented my offering my thoughts personally at the visitation. May warm memories of Ann Harmony comfort her family.

I am very sorry that you have suffered this loss. It is hard to know just what to say when a loved one dies. Be assured that our loving Creator is aware of your loss and pain. Through His son, Christ Jesus, he has arranged to bring back to life, "all those in the memorial tombs." (John 5:28,29) At that time, Rev. 21:4 says: “And he [God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Please accept my condolences for the loss of your beloved mother, grandma and friend. May God's Word comfort you and your family. Sincerely, Meryl, jw.org - [email protected]

Virgilio, my beloved husband of almost 60 years, you left me on January 16, 2019. What is left for me are all the unforgettable memories of our togetherness and shared happy moments. You gave me everything that any woman would deserve as well as the moon, as you promised when we were young. Now that you are gone I am presuming you are resting in Heaven. It’s really too much pain to bear, you being gone from my sight, but I don’t have any choice but to accept it. As I had said at the hospital when you were critical “you were given to me by God and I am giving you back to him.” That is the only way I am able to accept you being gone from me forever on this Earth with full acceptance and peace. Now that you are gone, in my grief, I have your children, relatives, friends, and acquaintances to share my happy and fond memories of you. Virgilio, my husband, may God bless you and may you rest in peace, your beloved wife, Elena

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

I had weekly piano lessons with Mr Ecklund from the time that I was 8 years old until I was 18, and with his guidance competed in many competitions - several of them rather anxiety inducing. Though I was never as serious in my musical studies as my sister, and not nearly as accomplished, George and I had a lot of fun talking about music (including my interest in the saxophone), baseball (disappointingly for him I was a Cubs fan), and fishing. He was a wonderful, kind man with a great sense of humor who taught us to love music and to pursue excellence. I have very fond memories of our hours together.

Phyl, I remember all the hilarious times we shared while working for Senator Rock. I imagine that you are still laughing about the time you offered to help the blind man find his room and led him into a closet instead--unknowingly, of course! We laughed the whole weekend over that episode. This is just one time among others we shared that still brings outbursts of laughter when I recall them so many years later. I am so sorry that I cannot say goodbye to you one last time since I will be with my grandchildren in New York. I will be thinking of you when my grand kids ask me for my computer so they can "push the buttons." Just like your very young granddaughter asked you. Thanks, Phyl, for bringing so much joy to my life.

Mr Ecklund was my piano teacher for a total of about 12 years. I started when I was 8 years old and stayed until college and then returned to study with him again after college. He was the formative influence in my musical life. My 3 siblings also took lessons from him for many years. In this way he became an important part of our childhood. Many years of Il Music Federation annual competitions.....many gold cups. God bless him. His pursuit of excellence and exacting standards left a profound impact that has stayed with me to this day. His upbeat personality and the joy he took in the simple things of life offered other important lessons to his many students. The Springfield music community was the better for his presence here and it is the poorer today. May he Rest In Peace.

George was my piano teacher from 1957-1965. He called me a couple years ago to ask me if I was still playing. I said yes, but if he hadn't put up with my laziness, I would have probably given it up. God bless George for his patience and unwavering commitment to his students and to music. A wonderful man has left this earth.

I was sorry to learn of the passing of Mr. Ecklund. He was my piano teacher for 8 years and also taught my brother and sister. He was a great teacher , and helped me develop a love of music that still continues today. I will never forget that red crayon marker that he used to write on your music, as you never wanted to get too many markings. I always enjoyed the new sheet music he picked out. I am thankful for all his knowledge, kindness and expertise. Please accept my deepest sympathy. Cathy Cragoe

Kenny meant the world to me. He never judged me if I was or wasnt in church. He told me about him and Sue doing a marathon or half and other races they did. He said I should do a marathon when I started walking then went to running. Well I thought no way in the beginning of my running at 40ish years of life. I couldn't do the mile run in school. Well I will tell you I am 50 and I have done a marathon several half marathon and other distances (not as long as the half or full marathons of 26.2 and 13.1) from 15miles down to just one mile. So with Kenny's encouraging and the good lord keeping me moving when I wanted to stop, I did all those distances some more times than others . Kenny and his family always made me feel loved and welcomed. I am so sorry for the loss of this amazing man. He suffers no more and sits with Jesus.

It is my hope that you will find comfort in the memories of your love one that will carry you through the years to come. The hope God gives in his Word the Bible can be a source of great comfort. In the Bible book of Acts 24:25 and John 5:28, 29 we have a sure promise that we can see our love ones again. Attached is a link to a little track that provides more information regarding that promise. Perhaps after everything has settled down you will find time to review that information along with your copy of your Bible. https://www.jw.org/finder?wtlocale=E&docid=1102013500&srcid=share

My thoughts are with her family, who lost a bright light. Many positive thoughts come to mind when thinking of Mrs. McEvoy, as it is difficult not to think of Cathedral grade school and not think of her teaching 7th grade. enjoyed her as a teacher and also as a class mates mother. But most of all as a friend of my mother who worked many years in the lunchroom at Cathedral. Did not realize it during the 1974/1975 school year, of just how fortunate I and so many her classmates were to have her a a teacher.

Feelings of sadness, regret, relief and gratitude; if only I had gotten to know you sooner or spent more time with you, while you were able to enjoy a little dance, a sweet song and a walk in the park. Phyllis was a wonderful friend to me, funny and loving. Her voiced agony at the loss of her deceased husband with grief as raw as if he had recently died expressed in words and music . Her pride and love for her many grown children and grandchildren. I saw the photos and I saw more photos she never tired of showing off her family. She shined her light on the neighborhood often times reaching out to unite a sometimes obstinate group who didn’t always understand her desire to bring people together, despite their busyness and differences. Pulling in the trash cans and sharing a newspaper, inviting us again and again to be friends with her and with each other. Cowboy Church, she said please go with me to Cowboy Church, oh I thought what is that, here she said you can wear my boots. Then how could I say, no?! Jesus is calling and in Phyllis he showed us an example of loving the Lord Your God With All Your Heart And Loving Your Neighbor As Yourself. Jesus is calling and He has called my dear friend home

Sorry I could not come to the visitation or funeral for Iva...but I have such good memories of our times together. Iva, Evy and I worked together to serve meals for the seniors at First Assembly of God church. Also on the first Saturday of Dec. many of us went out to eat, then took turns going back to our homes for desserts. At one time our daughters also joined us. Finally, we were down to just four of us who met at Chesapeake Seafood House. As we got older nights were hard and we went to lunch. Sorry I had to give up as I approached 90. I also remember Don leading in singing "I'll Fly Away". Looking forward to meeting so many in Heaven some day! Love and God's blessings to all of you!

I was saddened and shocked to read Eddy's obituary in today's paper. I have good memories of him helping me draft budgets over the years at the Library. He was always kind, patient, and supportive to me. I loved his venison chili and summer sausage...he introduced me to both of them as I'd never had hem before. I enjoyed and appreciated his sense of humor and dry wit and his laugh. He will be missed...my sincere condolences to his family and especially to his son, his pride and joy...remember the good times and smile through the tears. The Comforter will come and bring you solace and peace....

Dearest MacDonna Family, All of you are in my heart at this most difficult time. I have some wonderful memories of Paul I’d like to share. One being a part of Debbie and Paul’s wedding. It was an honor to be asked to sing for their special day, but also to sing with Uncle Dave playing the organ in one piece, and Virginia accompanying another piece sung with piano. There was much that happened that weekend, but Paul and Debbie’s wedding was a delight and wonderful memory. After Paul and Debbie were married, they planned a trip east from Illinois to see Grandma Maitland, Cousins, Aunts and Uncles. I happened to be living in the middle between Connecticut and Illinois at that time, so on their way back, they scheduled an overnight stop at our house in Ohio. We loved their visit, but it wasn’t just Paul and Debbie we were host to. They were accompanied by two “live” lobsters Paul was bringing back from the shore. His own small lobster bake at home was the goal. The two lobsters properly christened and named, were on ice and once in Ohio, more accommodations were needed for keeping them alive. I don’t know if those lobsters ever made it, but if they did, I know Paul and Debbie had a big laugh and a wonderful feast. Many years have gone by since all the cousins were together. Gosh, I believe it was for Grandmas memorial and celebration of life, and that was 20 years ago. Seems hard to believe that was when I last saw Paul, but it was a good visit with him, and with all of you. Enclosed is a donation in memory and for the Paul MacDonna Youth Mission Scholarship at Westminster. Rob and I are sorry not to be able to attend Paul’s celebration of life, but please know all of you are in our thoughts and prayers. With our love and deepest sympathy, Jan Maitland Thurston and Rob Thurston Corvallis, OR

She always kept sweets in her house and cookies in her cookie jars, especially Vienna fingers and those Keebler elfwich cookies. She also always had ice cream in her freezer or the deep freezer in the basement. Sometimes she would have something from the bakery on her stovetop, like a texas sheet cake, butter cake, granny cake, or a strawberry cream danish braid. She also made sure nobody left her house hungry!

I was an 8th grade student of Sister's at Our Saviour's in Jacksonville. Then I has contact with her as a North Central evaluator at Routt. Then again several years later when my son and one of her students were discussing enrolling at Pomona College. She was always a caring, bright and aware teacher and woman. A real credit to her order and to the steadfast hard work and intelligence she brought to living out her vows. May she rest in peace.

Sr. Phillip meant a great deal to me and my family, during my time at Sacred Heart-Griffin I would visit the motherhouse during study hall and Sister Phillip was always excited to see me. She would bring me cookies to bring home to my family and ask how my little brother was doing. Even after I stopped visiting the mother house she made a point of emailing me whenever she read my work in The State Journal-Register her praise meant the world to me. Regardless where we were or what she was doing Sister Phillip would always come say hello and ask how I had been since the last time we spoke and I know that she was sincere in her inquiry. She touched me, my family, and countless others; I know she will be greatly missed and I also know she is in a better place now.

Over winter break my brother, mama, and I all went over to Pats as we did almost every Sunday and gave them their Christmas presents. When Lucille opened hers she tested every candy we gave her and got super excited about her new John Cena shirt. She always said “I love you” and gave the most amazing hugs when we left to go back to our mamas. She was not only an amazing new friend, she was family. Sending all my love your way, Pat. I love you.

So many years have past, and now we are miles apart, but the memories I have of Doris and her beautiful smile remind me of the days in the mid 1970s when her daughters (Julie, Diane and Suzanne) and my daughter were in school and in Girl Scouts together.

I teach with Donna and we share rides to school. I have heard so many wonderful stories of how Dad and Uncle Frank saved her car "once last time" for 5 additional years until Uncle Frank said the car had gone far enough. Their family vacations became even more interesting when Uncle Frank joined them to help back the camper into their spot at the RV camp. The Langley family love, faith, service, and commitment to each other and their children's friends, too, is amazing. Uncle Frank lives on in those stories and in the skills he shared and taught to others!

Sorry for your loss. I just want to share how I knew Melanie. Our families grew up together ever since I could remember. My mom had her hair done by Ethyl. Only Frank Kiskas house separated our houses besides land. We rode bikes and horses and played dolls together. She used me to pretend to be a beauty operator but we really used the real stuff. Of course water was every where and shampoo. Overnights were a blast. Parties our families had were always a big deal. Oh how we lived to play together. Melanie I will always cherish our memories. RIP FROM TERESA AND ALSO MY DAD JIM STEVENS

Melanie was always so friendly, upbeat and a joy to talk with. I also went to school with Chris, Alan and Mike so have known the family for a long time even though not Melanie as much until the past couple years as she was younger than me when we were growing up. Praying for your entire family and may your memories of Melanie bring you some comfort during this difficult time

Doris, Joanne and I (the Three Cousins) were extremely close over the years. My greatest memory of Doris while we were little is the summers she spent in Chicago with my parents and I, and the trips we took all over the US. As senior adults, when we were all who were alive of the McCall family, we met for a few days each year or so and talked ourselves silly. I loved that woman soooo much and we will miss her. BUT I know she accepted Jesus as her savior and is in heaven now with a perfect body and Jesus at her side, along with Grandpa and Grandma Kleiber, Dan, Sophie, Helen,Virginia and Joe, and all of our relatives who loved Jesus and went before us. I loved Doris so much, and she can be so proud of her 4 daughters.

Abe was a godsend to my mother and our family when she was suffering with cancer. It was before the days of hospice, and Abe would come to the house and administer pain medicine by injection. She would, of course, also brighten our day with her exuberant personality! What a great soul! I hope she and my mom are in heaven reminiscing about their RN days at St. John's Hospital!

Richard ( better known as Catfish ) and I have a lot of good memories. The one I would like to share is the day I got my very fist tattoo. Eva my beloved sister and I got one the same place on our chest. Catfish kept saying come on Globo it doesn't hurt I'll pay for it. Well he talked me into to it. Well while I was sitting getting it done I moved when the guy ( our friend ) was doing one of the rose petals and it turned out looking like a ladies face. This man was one of a kind we will be miss but never forgotten. You'll be in my heart Catfish until I see you again. Shall the golden catfish shine in heaven. LET IT SHINE!

I never "met" Dr Grubbs, but he reached out through the internet into my curriculum to establish a warmth that is rare in student/professor relationships. His military experiences were similar to my own, and we shared stories of real life. I am saddned to know that he will shine no more from the Blackboard, but I know that the marks made there will continue to enlighten my thoughts and warm my memory of the human side of growing and learning. To Jim I offer a final SALUTE.

Dr. Barbara M. Posadas posted on 1/24/19

Dear Elena and Family, Roland and I are profoundly saddened to learn of Gil’s passing. His warmth, generosity and dedication to his family, to his profession, and to the history of Filipino Americans will never be forgotten. We first met Gil at the Filipino American National Historical Society Conference in New Orleans in 1988, a gathering especially memorable for its windy boat trip to Saint Malo, Louisiana, the site of first Filipino settlement in what would become the United States. Four years later, in 1992, Gil and Barbara chaired the program committee for the FANHS Conference in Chicago. Gil’s involvement continued unabated in the years that followed; he remained a FANHS trustee at the time of his death. Locally, Gil was instrumental in the founding of the Filipino American Historical Society of Springfield thirty-one years ago. We looked forward to receiving each lovingly compiled and edited issue of the Society’s Bulletin that Gil sent, his last being Vol. XXXI, No. 4 & 5, dated December 28, 2018. Gil will forever be fondly remembered. With sincere sympathy, Barbara and Roland Barbara M. Posadas, Ph.D., & Roland L. Guyotte, Ph.D. DeKalb, IL, and Morris, MN

Our deepest condolences to Tita Nena, Catherine, Caroline, Gilly, Ray & the rest of the family during your hour of grief. Tito Gil & Tita Nina are like our second father & mother since we partially grew up with them when we were younger and although we were separated from them several years ago - they have never stopped visiting us here in the Philippines - giving us invaluable support & advice. I remember the trip Tito Gil, Tita Nena & I took visit Cebu & Bohol visiting the Philippine tarsier monkeys in their sanctuary as well as several museums in Cebu. Tito Gil’s undying love & interest in Dr. Jose Rizal’s life & works is quite inspiring as well as his humanitarian efforts in providing medical supplies & providing scholarships to ensure education to the less fortunate. His deep desire to preserve & advance Filipino culture lives on in all his works & is an inspiration to us all.

Dad, I love you and I always will, you are my father and were and always will be my best friend. I’ve lost you on this earth as my mentor, my role model, my encourager and supporter but you will forever live in my memories, in my heart, and in the positive things that I accomplish and do in this life. You gave me strength and courage to find my way as a man and although I can never measure up to you, I am so proud to be a fraction of who you were and what you have accomplished. I cannot remember a time when I said “no” or “I can’t” to you and that is only because I cannot remember a time when you said “no” or “I can’t” to me. You will be remembered and missed every day of my life. I know you watch over me and all of us from up above and I will rejoice in the day when I am once again in your loving presence. So for now, I leave you in the care of our heavenly Father and pray that he will eternally bless you. Your Junior and your forever loving Son, Gilly

My deepest condolences to my dear friend Catherine and the Pilapil family. I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Pilapil 18 years ago and fondly remember what a gracious family man he was. His passion and contribution to the betterment of others was exemplary. He has left quite a legacy and will be greatly missed but never forgotten.

 

Ann McMinn Hopkins posted on 1/22/19

Our family met Dr. Pilapil in the early 70s when he accepted our daughter as his patient. Stacy had Down Syndrome with a heart defect. Dr. Pilapil was perfect for her - patient, gentle and kind and he understood Stacy and how to deal with her. I never knew Dr. Pilapil out side of the office, but I did know he was a gentleman and a gentle man with a special concern for our Stacy. He continued to doctor her beyond the pediatric stage for which we were grateful. Stacy's heart finally tuckered out and we lost her in 2016 at the age of 45. I was so sorry to see the announcement of Dr. Pilapil in the paper - he was special. My prayers are with his family.

Our condolences to you, Elena and the whole Pilapil family. Although we may not have known Gil for as long as some the impressions he made in our minds, hearts, and deep into our souls will last forever. We will remember him in many ways...Gil had integrity and character...was courageous and went after what he wanted. He was energetic and eager to work. He listened, had self respect and gave respect to all. He also had a good sense of humor. He said what he meant, and meant what he said. We will remember him as a loyal and dedicated man who followed through with his word even with people who didn’t follow through with theirs. He worked hard... was a family man and thankful and gracious for everything he received. His desire was to advance culture so that future Filipino generations would find the world a better place. Our hearts feel broken...but he will continue to live on in our beautiful memories of him and in the legacy of his organizations. He lives on in the people he helped go through school with his humanitarian work and scholarships he provided for those here and back home, for without Gil’s efforts their goals may have been a bigger challenge to reach..., and we will always have his written words. It is an honor and privilege to have had Gil as a dear friend. May our prayers ease the pain of this great loss and the comfort of God help us. We love you Elena. Please know how much we are saddened that we are not able to be by your side at this time. May God bless Gil’s soul so he rest in peace. With our love, prayers and deepest sympathy. ❤️❤️❤️ Caloy and Diva

In behalf of the Central USA Area Knights of Rizal, we extend condolences to the family of Sir Dr. Virgilio R. Pilapil, KGOR of the LIncolnland Chapter of the Knights of Rizal.

Our deepest sympathies to the Pilapil Family. Gil was a pillar of the Fil-Am community here in Central Illinois he will be truly missed. I was honored to have lunch with him just a few days before his demise and he felt so positive of his recovery. I am sure his legacy will remain with all of us! “Let Perpetual Light shine upon Gil.”

Gil was a leader of organizations, writer, editor of medical and non-medical publications, author, military officer, and a humanitarian being involved in medical missions for thirty years. We pray to God for wife Elena and Gil's family. May Gil rest in peace. God Bless. Rano.

I worked with Eloise at AT&T/Ameritech for several years as dispatchers. We grew very close and loved her and Ralph. They visited us in Hot Springs Village after we retired. A group of us used to go to breakfast together. Bill, my husband shared the same birthday as Eloise, so we usually got together on January 12th for that celebration. She talked and loved her family so much and enough more so after losing Ralph. I visited her often with my grandkids when she lived in Chatham, but when she was moved, I lost contact with her. She was always so kind and caring for others. I'm sorry for your lost and I know she didn't remember who I was most of the time while in Chatham, but she always acted happy to see me. Hang on to the Good memories and fun times you shared! I hope to be there Sunday, weather permittimg.

I met June when she and Bert were my next door neighbors at Lincoln Tower. We shared so many wonderful times together. It almost seemed like she was my "Second Mom". Both were kind, caring, selfless women and they both even shared the same name! I'll miss all the fun gatherings, the trips to Quincy, the quiet talks we had. She was a great listener. Today my heart is sad and the tears are flowing but I feel blessed that our paths crossed so many years ago.

It is a pleasure to enjoy the fellowship of a like-minded motorhead. Dick was such a person. I first met Dick through the Springfield Milers BMW Motorcycle Club. Although we have not exactly stayed in touch these past few years, I always liked and appreciated Dick - and was glad I got to know him. I was saddened to learn of his passing. Please accept my condolences.

Connie, David, Jack and Debra, I was saddened to read today’s paper, about the passing of Jimmie. I can say, that he was the most polite guy, that I have ever known. We played together as tikes, when my dad and yours both worked for Kraft Foods. Our Friendship went on thru High School. I used to love to watch him shoot hoops and swing a golf club. We both ended up working at the State Capitol Complex, and worked on many, many Democratic Campaigns together, thru the years. I will be keeping you all in my prayers. Love and God Bless, Molly Grady Risse

Mary Lyn Sundberg posted on 1/7/19

I met Elva many years ago at First National Bank where we worked together in the Data Processing Customer Service Department. When the bank disbanded the Data Processing Department and we all went in different directions, our department decided that we wanted to stay connected and meet once a month. We felt our meetings needed a name and hence, the 'Huggers' were born. Even when I came in on vacation, I would make sure I let them know and we would have our meeting at that time. The ladies played such an important part in my life and Elva was a major part of that. I always felt a special connection to her - maybe because we were closer in age. I had tried to reach her to get together, wish I could have seen her one more time. Prayers and healing to Tom and family. You already know what a wonderful wife and mother she was and she will be greatly missed by all.

Dear Gail. My deepest words of sympathy but also words of victory to you, your sister Becky, and all your other family, kids and grandchildren, because we all have The Lord’s assurance of her new life in Heaven with your Dad and eventually each of us. Praise Jesus for taking her pain and rewarding her for her faithfulness. Ruby was and always will be a jewel of a lady, friend and sister in Christ. My parents loved her and your dad so much! She showed kindness to me many times that I won’t ever forget. I regret that I didn’t learn of her passing until just now when I opened Facebook. Sorry I’m not there to hug you and share this day with your family. But I’m praying for your comfort and strength today and in the days ahead. Linda and Louis Kunz

 

Kelly Greene posted on 1/7/19

I met Elva when I started my first job straight out of college in 1993 at FirstBank of Illinois. I got to know her and Pat Gall quickly - they were like grandmother figures to me and we soon realized we had common interests - golfing and drinking a beer, so the age difference didn't seem to matter. For several years we walked the links of Pasfield, Bunn, and Bergen Parks after work, and joining for supper and a drink afterwards. Even after mergers and retirements separated us, we and a few others from the Bank would get together periodically to discuss old times. I did not realize she had been ill, as I just recently sent her a message on FB to get together for lunch in December. Elva was one of the good ones - I will sure miss her. I hope she and Pat are hitting the links in heaven. Prayers to her family that she loved so much.

My sincere condolences to Earline's family. I haven't seen Earline in 47 years but had been in contact with her on Facebook for several years.

Now she's pain free and looking down from heaven over her loved ones.

When I think of my Uncle John there is always a smile on his face, golf clubs near by, and a Polo T-shirt being worn. My favorite story is one my cousin Stephanie told me many years ago. John was driving the convertible (top down) with Stephanie in the car. She was getting cold and John asked, "Do you want me to put the windows up?". I can only imagine the look Steph gave him. Sweet Goofball!

 

Becky posted on 12/29/18

When images of John come to my mind there is always a smile on his face, golf clubs near by, and a polo t-shirt being worn. My favorite story of him was one my cousin Stephanie told me years ago of a time when she was riding in her Dad's convertible (with top down) and she was cold. So John asked her if she wanted the windows up. I can only image the look Steph gave her dad. Sweet Goofball.

I first met Vern at Drew's downtown,followed him to Jefferson and Fairhills. He made me several golf clubs,fishing poles lures,and spent many hours on my dads boat fishing and talking about everything.I watched him play racketball and complain about his sore arm always wrapping it in some kind of contraption. i asked him once won't that mess with you barbering.....he told me he really wasn't that good of a barber. Classic Vern. I was honored to be a lifelong customer and a friend. He told me he had given me his last haircut and charged me what he charged me the first time $1.00. I may not have been his last haircut but he made me feel like I was. Sorry to the Dennison family for your loss.

Sorry to hear about the passing of Vern. I knew him from the barber shop. I am sure he will be missed by all who knew and loved him. RIP Vern

 

Mike Lawrence posted on 12/23/18

Vern was a special person in my life. He was my barber for more than 20 years before I moved to Carbondale and, more importantly, we developed a friendship that I treasured. I enjoyed reconnecting with him when I returned to Springfield. My thoughts are with Vern's family, his loved ones and his long-time associates at the Men's Room.

I had the pleasure of being Verns’ neighbor for over 25 years. I loved his sense of humor. He always had a story or joke to share. He will be terribly missed. I know he is in heaven now and he is entertaining everybody there.

Tammy, I'm going to miss our long talks out in the yard, your crazy laugh, your jubilant spirit. You were a great neighbor and friend. Our Aarup Street family has lost a cherished member. Michelle, Tara, Nick, Penny, Lorna, Emily, and all the family I'm keeping you close in my heart and in my prayers at this very very difficult time.

We were so sad to hear of Tammy's passing. She was such a fun person and shared some amazing stories. It was through her sister Lorna and their love of Mexico that led to our meeting Tammy (through Lorna). Those 2 were extremely close and such good friends. We are just heartbroken. May God Bless Tammy and Lorna and all of their families.

I met Jim when I first came to UIS and made a point as an administrator to get out and about and visit one on one with faculty and staff. As some who is also a "radio guy" we bonded quickly and had many hours of sharing radio stories. One of my highlights of visiting with Jim was when he gave a lecture as part of the LIS/LNT program and revisited some of the highlights of his books. And fittingly it was set up in the Prairie Stars radio station. Will always carry that image of Jim with me.

As a UIS Faculty member interested in audio technology, I had a number of conversations with Jim in passing about the subject when our paths crossed on campus.

I offer my heartfelt condolences to Jim's family, and hope that his memory will continue to cheer and guide them.

Timothy Parsons-Heather posted on 12/17/18

Hello Everybody – I’m Timothy Parsons-Heather. When we find ourselves at a loss for words, I think the heart helps us say what we feel most deeply about those closest to us. For everything that my friend Professor Jim Grubbs meant to education and the countless careers he built through his passion for teaching, I will always remember him for his authentic personality and unmatched gentleness. I most recently took Jim’s online course COM 458 “Media from a Liberal Arts Perspective” in the summer 2016, but I have known him for many years in a way that has not only advanced my critical knowledge about life, but that has enriched my appreciation for learning itself. I’m about five years younger than Jim, but he had a spectacular penchant for empathizing with anybody who felt comfortable enough to share their feelings with him. When I entered MacMurray College in August 1972 just three months out of high school, I aspired to become an on-air radio personality in the likes of Springfield’s Jim Palmer, Bob Murray, Tony Trent, Jim Gray, Doug Seigel – and the list goes on and on – all of whom knew Jim Grubbs well. I graduated in May 1976 with a Bachelor’s degree in Speech and Theatre Arts, with emphasis in radio-TV broadcasting and mass communication. My parents turned me toward a career in public service instead, but I never lost sight of becoming an on-air broadcaster. Thanks to Professor Jim Grubbs, I lived the spirit of that career through him. And, for all the textbooks that Jim used over the years, he’s the person who introduced me to the ‘bible’ of the radio broadcasting industry – the Joel Whitburn 'Billboard Top Music Hits' series that lists all the songs played on the radio in chronological order and by sales ranking. I’ve never told anybody this, but I was with Jim one day, and he began humming ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight’ by The Tokens without even knowing it. That’s how comfortable he got with people. So let’s face it, we idolized Dr. Jim Grubbs. We’ve lost a man who delved deeply into the arts, values and humanity of life itself. We’ve been separated from a visionary whose soul was saturated with bounty and wisdom; a common-sense genius who lived his years at the intersection of virtue, technology and culture; and a friend whose memory and compassion will echo through our hearts and the valleys of central Illinois for decades to come. Timothy Parsons-Heather December 17, 2018

 

Alberta Williams posted on 12/16/18

To Jim's love ones. Please accept my sincere condolences. Even tho, I know of no words, to rid you of your pain, during this most difficult time. May our prayers, help strengthen us, and our memories, comfort us. At Isaiah 25:8; 26:19 we look forward to seeing our love ones again as Almighty God Jehovah lovingly promises.

 

John Malone posted on 12/16/18

I met Jim when I enrolled to earn my Masters degree at UIS. By then, I had worked in radio for 17 years and was changing careers to academia. Jim was my advisor and instructor for three courses. Upon graduating in 2006, Jim and I became good friends. We communicated by email regularly and met for dinners and conversation. He introduced me to Xochimilco, and even though I never like Mexican food, he converted me over time! We could always converse over hours, usually across multiple topics. He and I shared radio as our passion. We could talk about that and so many other things, it seems, forever. Jim was a wonderful human being and a gentle soul. I will remember him for the rest of my life and will miss him very much.

 

Hazel Rozema posted on 12/16/18

I was a colleague of Jim's at University of Illinois Springfield (UIS) for 20 years. I will always remember his smile and kindness toward others. Students remember his passion for radio and his ability to teach them not just audio production but how to a professional. Over the years, Jim wore many different hats at UIS - from Director of Credit for Prior Learning, to Assistant Professor in LIS/INO to an Associate Professor of Communication. He was one of the first faculty members to teach online classes enabling students from across the U.S. and overseas in the military to complete their B.A. degrees; he won the Burks Oakley Award for Excellence in Online Teaching in 2009. Jim was passionate about radio and loved music. Thus Jim was thrilled to visit The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Two of the joys of his life were Donna and watching his nieces grow up. He established the Star 96 / Prairie Star Student Radio Station at UIS - where his legacy lives on. Jim was the student commencement speaker at his B.A. graduation from SSU - and the faculty gave him a standing ovation. Amazing! Jim's legacy lives on and we miss him already.

So sorry to hear about Kay, it was a blessing to get to know her and her sister Rita. Running into them at several locations in Springfield. My mother Dorothy worked with Kay for several years, and Kay was a great comfort to me during my mothers illness and after her death. It seems as if both my mother and Kay said after you retired from Social Security, its not very long, God will call you home. I will truly miss her, it was a pleasure knowing Kay. My prayers are with her sister Rita and her family during this difficult time.

Kay Ann was a very strong woman. As a single Mom, she did a magnificent job in raising our two children, Nicole and Keith Jr. My memory of her cheer leading at my basketball games will last forever. In the last few years, I came to realize just how caring and thoughtful she was. The illness of our son, Keith brought us together again. We started to develop another friendship. I wish there would have been more time. I will truly miss her, and pray that I will see her and Keith Jr again.

To the family and friends of E. Gene Pool: My deepest sympathies. Gene was a valued, long-time colleague at the Illinois Education Association, during which time he gracefully adapted to and supported the changing mission of the organization. That was his wonderful nature; "When there's a job to do, give it your best." Gene leaves a legacy of decades of service to Illinois teachers and education employees past and present. He was part of a team that fought for collective bargaining rights for teachers in the 60s, 70s and early 80s, saw those rights achieved and watched proudly over the next 30 years as tens of thousands benefitted from the results. Thank you Gene! Peace.

My Mom, my friend, my traveling companion, my Escort, my Champion - Mom you are leaving tough shoes to fill because you have always been there for your family and me. You always opened your home to any of our friends and on record you might have five children, but in heart you have at least three more that will always call you MOM. I had the joy and privilege of traveling the State with you, once with you as my Escort and then it was my privilege to be your Escort. You were always ready to get ON THE ROAD AGAIN, not just for Eastern Star events, but to see Miranda and the Country. You were a fighter to the end -- you fought for me and for yourself when the first time Jimmy played cards with the family you let him have it when he didn't give you a chance to play your cards. You are the WIND BENEATH MY WINGS. Go rest high on that mountain with Dad and know that you will always be the GREATEST and SWEETEST MOM a girl every had.

It was an honor and privilege to know and be able to call Tom a friend and a neighbor. We enjoyed seeing Tom sitting in his yard and stopping by to chat with him for a few minutes during neighborhood walks. And we were always glad Tom was there when our dog escaped, went to Tom's house and he would bring her home. If it snowed, who was there to plow our driveway, Tom! Who cut my grass when I ruptured my Achilles, Tom! Who would take nothing in return for his acts of kindness, Tom! Tom would stop by and we would talk for sometimes 30 minutes about everything and nothing. Bonnie, Tim and Pam you are in our thoughts and prayers. Tom you will be missed. God Bless You and Your Family!

Adam was always kind, always said hello, smiling, fishing, & would help us with any project. He caught more fish in our cove than the professionals. He will always be thought of by us as an exceptional young man with a great family. We are so sorry for your loss.

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

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

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

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

 

Stu Weyforth posted on 11/14/18

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

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

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

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

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

From driving to Florida to spend time with soccer world friends, 2 going to align I basketball games, cardinal baseball games, the state fair, downtown Springfield festivals, and the APL fundraisers. We would go out to dinner on Sunday nights, and she never seemed to let her cancer get her down...she was a brave woman. I will miss you dear friend.

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

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

My deepest sympathies go out to the family of Rod Huffman, my long-time friend and co-worker for many years. I will miss your smile, your good humor, and the stories we used to share. From one Army veteran to another, "Rest in honored peace, my friend", and thank you for serving our country!

I know that Rod is looking down on all of us with that ear to ear smile that was so contagious wanting us all to live life and be the best that we all can and should be, He was a true gentleman, father, husband and friend and this world will be a little less than perfect without him. God Bless the Huffman family and I pray that God grants you the comfort and peace that you all need.

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

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

I know how hard it is to lose a parent to Alzheimer’s, To watch someone so bright and alive slowly disappear from your life is almost unbearable.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dan was such a cute and funny kid at Little Flower School. As it turned out, Dan and my husband worked their first jobs at Holiday Inn East. Regret we didn’t run into each other in later years.

He cared so much for others and would do anything he could for you. Joe, I am going to miss your dad so much and cherish all of the fun times we had together. Rest In Peace, Uncle Dan. Love, Matt Bretz

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

Dear "Mickie", Sam and family, We are so sorry for your loss. Frank was a wonderful friend and neighbor. He will be missed by who knew him. But now he is in God's Hands and with his love of his life, Eva. When we held our neighborhood block parties, Frank would always lead off the parade carrying the flag with great pride. I can still see him carrying that flag. I wish I had a photograph of him having that honor.
