It is with sadness that I read about the death of Bernita. I was a good friend and fellow rider of Dick's and after his death, became a visitor and appreciated her friendship. Now I know what happened to her when she left Rockford. My condolences go out to her whole family.

Bill had the best smile and was a shining light at Stroke Camp, the Stateline Stroke Support group and the Aphasia group. He had a sweet spirit and will be sorely missed.

I first became acquainted with Bee through her son-in-law, Dale, at my first meeting of family members who had loved ones living at Bickford Cottage Assisted Living. I was a "newby" and Dale said that his mother-in-law had been there several years. I said, "Wow, a son-in-law here for his wife's mother. This old gal must be something special". He replied. "She is!" I came to find that out for myself as I interacted with Bee over the next year, often worshiping with her at the Sunday afternoon services at Bickford. I also had many long conversations with Pat about our caregiving situations, gaining much strength and insight from her thoughtful sharing of how her faith has gotten her through her trials. May Bee rest in peace and may her family feel God's grace in this time of celebrating Bee's life and laying her to rest.

Our deepest sympathies to Karen and the Ferrera Family. Tom was a fantastic neighbor to my mom--both he and Karen were always that ray of sunshine stopping by for coffee, a chat or a song. Tom had a fabulous spirit about him! He was also very supportive to me and my siblings as we dealt with my mom's illness and then the subsequent sale of her home. Tom was a great, caring man and will be missed. I am sure he is singing to Billie in heaven now!

So sorry to read that Dr. Tom is gone. Our deepest condolences to his children, wife and the Family Optical "family." I am sure that you all are reeling from this. I recall being so shocked at losing my friend Mary-Hope. They were certainly a dynamic duo and gave much of themselves to our communities. I will never forget the BLAST that they had dancing to my father's band of local jazz musicians at our wedding. They raved and raved about our wedding and the music. They always wanted me to come out and swim since I swim a lot here in Rockford. I think she told me that they swam twice a day! Unreal. But, the last time I saw Tom I knew something was not quite right with him mentally and attributed it to age. It was sad, as it often is when you note this in our older friends. We enjoyed having him as our doctor and having him sing as he walked in and "lecture" us to be happy. He was quite a character. I love Dr. Sarah Gregg at the office there now too and the staff do such a great job. Our hearts go out to you all. With my father's death in 2014, Dave and I have now lost both of our parents, so we know what Carina and the kids are going through. God Bless and comfort you all.

So sorry to read this. I just loved him as my eye doctor until he retired. He just made a person feel so upbeat, he was sunshine in a dark room.

I am so sad to hear of Bill`s passing. I knew Bill when we worked together at Maple Crest Nursing Home some years ago.

We were saddened to hear about the passing of Tom. Tom blessed us with many special memories none more memorable than the time we were visiting the National Christmas Tree in Washington DC with Tom and the Snively Family. Tom started singing "God Bless America" we all joined in. To Tom it was simply a natural thing to do at that moment, to us he created a wonderful life lasting memory. You are our SUNSHINE!

Jennifer Diamond posted on 2/3/16

The Ferrara Family, I learned of your dad's passing today. I am so sorry for your family's loss. Your parents played such an integral role in my life. There have been many times I wonder how my life would have been different without their influence. I don't believe I would have finished college without their encouragement (and sometimes a swift kick), which I needed. Your dad took me under his wing when I needed guidance the most. He had an unbelievable amount of patience and was a natural teacher. He also made me realize age was just number. I was inspired by his athleticism and willingness to try something new. He had a sense of humor and an ease around all people. Besides the knowledge, the best thing about my time at Family Optical was the relationship I experienced with your parents. I feel blessed to have known your dad.

Ginny and family, I'm sending you my sincere condolences in the loss of John. I'll always remember working with him when I had my catering business for wedding receptions. John would take my order and time that I would pick it up so that I got the best food. I'm sorry that I couldn't attend the visitation or funeral. You see, Bruce 7 weeks ago tonight went from this earthly home to Eternity. Everything is to fresh yet to go to your celebration of John's life. I pray your family all stay close and comfort one another it is so very important.Grief is tough no doubt my prayer for you is you have a number of friends also family to help you through it, the best is day by day or hour by hour if need be. May God Bless all of you that mourn. Just think whatever John had for an illness he has no more he is perfect in every way and in no finer place than HEAVEN.......

Uncle john always had an upbeat attitude and enjoyed making people laugh. He had a huge heart of gold. And even though he was in pain most of the time he never griped or grumbled unless he put a humorous spin on it. I have loved him all my life and while he will be missed I know that he was welcomed by God with open arms and he is in no pain anymore. And I'm sure he is talking the angels ears off telling them all about his family . LOL xoxoxo

My one and only memory of Bob was from 2011 when my husband and I were passing through Belvidere as we moved from Pittsburgh back to California. I wanted to see my great aunt Muriel, Kay's mother, but was not sure how to get to her home. Bob and Kay dropped everything when we called and met us off the Interstate to take us to see Muriel. I cannot think of kinder, more gracious people than Bob and Kay. My prayers are with Kay and the rest of the family as you grieve a wonderful, kind, and generous man.

My Dad, Kay's brother-in-law, was asked to officiate at Bob & Kay's wedding and I remember how grateful my folks were for his love & care for Kay & becoming part of our family. I remember Bob's warm smile, twinkly eyes & generous, welcoming nature, & peaceful presence. So grateful for the wonderful visit we shared in 2012 at the Webber/Harvey reunion in their home. He will be greatly missed...but he is now in glorious heaven with our Lord, where our great reunion will be!! Love in Christ, Beth

Garnett (Gee) - your neighbor next door posted on 12/21/15

Wayne was the best next door neighbor anyone could ever have. He voluntarily cut my grass during the summer and ploughed my driveway during the winter. Wayne would never ask for a penny of compensation and when I offered to pay him, he respectfully declined my offer. He just told me "Gee, that's what friends are for". Wayne was my dear friend who would text/call me every week just to see if I was OK or needed anything due to my frequent job travel schedule. Wayne I am so sorry I wasn't home just to say goodbye to you before you left us my friend. However, your legacy of sincere kindness and community lives on brother. May your departed soul R.I.P.

Going to the Waverly Horse Sale in Waverly, Iowa was always a fun time.

If you knew Jim, it didn't take long before you were visiting with everyone around your table, sharing stories about life wherever lived. We will never forget Jim and good times we had during those days at Waverly. Some people leave a mark on your heart and Jim was one of those people....

Leo Johnson posted on 12/18/15

I have so many memories of Jim in dealing with him in the used equipment business that it would take all day to list. Stories, philosophies of people, and life lessons were Jim's passions. I believe Jim once told me that his only formal education beyond Belvidere High was a Dale Carnegie Speaking class. I believe Jim could have taught Dale Carnegie a thing or two about public speaking. Other frequent topics of conversation with Jim included his lovely wife and daughters, high school football, and the price of land. Jim taught me most of what I know today about the equipment business and real estate investing, and will forever be thankful of that.

At the age of 72 we recruited her as a junior high leader for the Shiloh Evangelical Free Church, and she was one of the best ones we ever had! We even got her to join us on tobogganing day at Aldeen Park. I remember her cookies, her smile, her laughter, and her deep faith in Christ.

Dear Tom and family, So sorry Tom to hear about your mom I'm very glad I did get to know her, living just 2 houses down from her. Was nice to visit her when she needed me. Boy could me and her talk up a storm and loved every minute of it. My prayers are with you at this sad time Tom she loved you a lot and you took good care of her.

I just heard that Dennis joined the multitudes who have gone before us and are now in the physical presence of Jesus. I have such fond memories of Dennis from our years at Emmanuel before we left and during our time home on furlough from serving as missionaries in what was then Zaire (1970s). Dennis' contagious smile will remain with me always. I pray God's peace and comfort for those of you who will feel the sharp pain of loss until you are again reunited.

I have very fond memories of Zeta. I have had the pleasure of knowing her for over 35 year. While being her friend and her hair dresser, we shared many stories of family and other friends. She shared all kinds of patterns with me, sewing and crocheting. She often brought me special treats, and the receipe, she had baked or canned. I would pick her up after work, bring her to my house to do her hair, and then take her back home for tea and cookies or cake. As the years took a toll on her and she went to live with Tom, he would bring her over, drop her off for a few hours, Zeta would get a shower, a massage, pedicure or manicure, and then do her hair. Several times I got to take her shopping and out to lunch. She is one of the nicest, most gentle, and giving woman I know. I even heard a story about some pillows she made that said yes and no. Such a serious but very funny lady. I will miss you, but see you again. One of her biggest worries was when she was gone Tom would be alone. Not no more, Congradualation on your marriage to a wonderful woman, just like your Mom. Love you Zeta.

Though I had only met Karen on a handful of occasions, her kindness has left a lasting impression. She was so supportive during the last days of my father (her stepfather) Loren’s life, and truly grasped the pain and sadness of his children being a half country away, and just stepped up and made his last days as comfortable as possible. I am forever grateful she was there. On top of that, the several times we met - again I will remember the kindness. I feel bad I didn’t know she was sick and if there is some blessing, I am glad she did not suffer. To Dorothy and the boys, and the siblings, I wish all of you the best and apologize for not being able to be there for you. I certainly can imagine your pain and extend my heartfelt condolences to you all.

Karen, We had recently discussed getting together over coffee to discuss an issue that we shared together in our personal lives. In fact, I thought about you the first two weekends in November, telling myself that I was going to make that call to get together. Sadly, it never happened, ... Of course I am very sorry now that I never made that call. You were the light of the TSA training department; always positive despite what you were going thru internally. I will always remember the fun we had in our initial training class, and how you had patience with all the crazy personalities in that class! You were a strong woman and a great mentor to many. May your light continue to shine as bright in life ever after as it did here on earth. RIP Karen, you will be greatly missed by all.

I am so very thankful for having met Dan (and Pat) many years ago while they were here in Michigan. Both exceptionally brilliant people, while also humble, thankful, and a sincere pleasure to know .... I feel blessed to of met them. I enjoyed Dan's stories of their children and grandchildren (early in our relationship we always seemed to talk about the giant baby, (which I am afraid to ask is how old already? LOL) I am also thankful to have talked at length with Dan on the phone recently. Even while facing the inevitable he was a very stoic man, and I admired him and told him so. We shared a few laughs, and tears in that conversation, and I thanked him for being who he was. Pat my heart goes out to you, and your family in this time of sorrow, and I am sorry for your loss, everyone's loss of Dan, but recollect on the smiles, the laughs, the adventures and experiences that you've had, and know he will always live in your memories. He is at peace now and we will miss him. Sean Williams and sons

If we all learned but one lesson from Trudy Critchfield let it be the reward we receive in choosing the Lord Jesus Christ as our very own Lord and savior. Our time here is but of a blink of an eye, But the Gift of eternal life is ours for ever and is more beautiful than anything we could come up with on own.. The Lord Jesus is kind , patent, and will meet you where your . Ask and yee shall recive , Seek and yee shall find, Knock and the door will be opened for you . Trudy had shared these simple steps with many. She now sores on the wings of eagles, she runs but does not become week. She is in her mansion in heaven made just for her, and she walks on streets paved of gold so pure you can see through it.Trudy is a powerful prayer warrior. Let us not shed tears of sadness because her here on earth is done, But let us shed tears of joy for her eternal life has just begun free of any pain or suffering. Thank you Trudy in Jesus name Amen

Trudy will surely be missed. We all love that lady so much! I know she's in the arms of Jesus now and finally at peace and rest. No more physical struggles. I'm so happy for her, and yet so sad for her family. I love you all, and am here if you need anything. Please call if there's anything I can do. I keep hearing Jesus telling Trudy "Well done, my good and faithful servant." Trudy was such an awesome human being. Always there for whoever needed her, opening her home to anyone in need, and always there with a listening ear. One could always count on her to be truthful and blunt when she felt it necessary. I always admired those things about her. She made a difference in many lives. God Bless you all, and may He give you His peace.

She could light up a dark room with her big smile and that Frank laugh. I know the pain of losing someone, and the void that their passing leaves in your heart. But I also know that through the love and faith you have in God, the two of you will one day be reunited again! Until that day, may God bless you and hold you in the palm of his hand.

Mary was always my favorite aunt. Mary was upbeat and optimistic. When life gave her lemons, she made lemonade. I enjoyed the rotten birthday cards that she almost never forgot to send me. I will miss her. Brian Fitzgibbon

My aunt was always up, and willing to laugh and joke and tease. There was never a down conversation. She never missed a birthday without sending me a rotten card, which I looked forward to. I will miss you, but I will see you again. Love, Tim Fitzgibbon

Dear Mary, As I look back in time I see the three of us. You were the youngest with pretty Shirley Temple curls. Jeanne and I had straight hair. I see the three of us sitting on the porch swing on a summer evening as we sang songs in three-part harmony. The neighbors came out to listen! I see the years roll by as we chose different paths and dealt with life's ups and downs, victories and disappointments and strengths and weaknesses. We were strong. We were survivors. We were the Dain girls. I love you, Mary. We were more than sisters. We were friends. I know there is a celebration in heaven as Mom and Jeanne are there to greet you, as well as family and friends who have gone before. I will see you again. Love, Pat

Will is my fathers (George R.Jacksons, Jr. ) older brother. Will was always my favorite uncle and I always told him that. I guess because he was so much in my life always around with my dad. My Uncle Will did so much for me. Even these last few months his advice helped me through a very hard time and said things to my sister Ali that she really needed to hear to be at peace with our fathers death. I loved him so much. I have so many memories with him. I cry when I think of him gone but I think back to memories in my tears I laugh and smile because the memories were of good times. It's so hard to believe he's gone. My heart goes out to his children and grand children at this time.

Our family met Thomas the summer of 2010. What a joy it has been to see him grow from a teen into the wonderful young man he was. Thomas was gentle, solid in his walk and growth in Jesus Christ and encourage those around him to do the same. Here are some words that remind me of Thomas. (T) Teachable "Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for your are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. Psalm 25:4-5 (H) Humble "HE has told you, O Man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you but to o justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God." Micah 6:8 (O) Obedient "As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance, but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior." I Peter 1:14-15 (M) Ministry "Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. But you, be sober in all things, endure hardships, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry. II Timothy 4:2,5 (A) Awe Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe." Hebrews 12:28 (S) Salvation The Lord is my light and my Salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the defense of my life; whom shall I dread?" Psalm 27:1 The Lord is my strength and my shield; My heart trust in Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart exults, and with my song I shall thank Him." Psalm 28:7 These are Bible verses that Thomas demonstrated in his life. I know Thomas would desire all of his family and friends to come to know and love God as he did. This Libby family has been truly blessed to has been a part of his life. We will all greatly miss him. Thankful for all the love, encouragement and prayers he gave to us. We look forward to seeing him again in heaven and rejoice with him praising and worshiping God together.

Thomas was such a great friend to so many people. His love for Christ was evident in everything he did and said.

My deepest condolences to Thomas' family & to all the lives he touched. Thomas spread the good word to all he encountered, was encouraging & an inspiration. A short description of Thomas ~ “ Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. Let all that you do be done with love” (1 Corinthians 16:13-14). It was always so refreshing to see someone in the younger generation truly walking the walk. His faith never wavered & he set good examples in all of his endeavors. Thomas reminded me that life is short & we never know when we will see someone again. Life is miraculous & a precious gift & I will remember to appreciate every moment with people. Instead of saying goodbye, it should be until we meet again. =) Thank you Thomas for your strong faith, compassion & tremendous service!!!!!!!

Thomas was one of the kindest people that I know! He was such an encourager, and a man striving to follow the Lord in all his ways. He was a good friend, and he was a huge blessing to many people, including myself. I was in Maywood's high school youth group with him, as well as Maywood's college group. He was a big part of our college group, and he is already so missed...but I'm so thankful that he is now with our Savior forevermore! I am praying for the family.

I go to Maywood, and I always sat a couple of rows behind and to the side of Thomas. Even though I did not personally know him, his love for The Lord was so evident. He was always totally engaged in worship and made an impression on all of us. My heart goes out to your family. I was very sad to learn of Thomas's home going. Take comfort in knowing he is happy because he is in the best place ever. However, that does not lessen your loss, I know. Please come to Maywood so we can get to know you and offer comfort.

I taught Thomas in 3rd grade class at Perry. He was a kind and sweet person. I remember him as a bright boy with only kindness to share. I am so very sorry for your loss.

Thomas radiated god's love from what he did to how he talked or not doing anything at all it just showed. On my second axis/contact camping trip he schooled me in fire making because unlike him I dropped out of boy scouts but he did not rub it in he actually helped me be better at fire making. Thomas was a good listener, good at comic trivia, interesting dresser, a strategic planner, and a great friend . If Thomas went to a costume party in his long coat and said he was the Doctor you would believe him because he always had a screwdriver, three knifes ,a bowling ball in his truck, and who knows what. He literally brought rope to bible study one Tuesday. Some one somewhere just got an awesome guardian angel. We'll miss you Thomas see you later friend.

 

Gavin Rittmeyer posted on 9/28/15

Thomas had a zeal for the Lord and knowing Him - He put this into practice by showing deep compassion and caring for others. I knew Thomas for just a brief period, but watching him grow at Maywood, witnessing his Eagle Scout ceremony and reading his FB posts as he ventured forth in life living for Yeshua, it was always clear who owned his heart and his love for others. I regret that I will miss ceremonies celebrating Thomas' seemingly brief life - only seemingly because though short in years, he was long in living and embracing life and living his calling.

 

Pastor Gary Kniseley posted on 9/28/15

Thomas was a real blessing to so many people. He lived his life to serve others and his Savior, Jesus Christ. Thomas was such a faithful young man and it has been a joy to see him grow. He has touched so many lives and he will indeed be missed! I'm so thankful that he rests in the arms of Jesus Christ who blessed him with salvation. We are praying for the entire family! Thank you for sharing Thomas with us--He has been a wonderful blessing to us all!

Dave, Judy and Steve, I cannot express how painful it is to read of Timothy's passing. I vividly remember playing with Tim when we were all just little tykes. I so enjoyed having Tim and Steve just a couple of doors down to ride bikes, run up and down the street and whatever other children's games we played. In my mind he is still part of my neighborhood circle of friends, and I will "cherish" those memories in my heart always. I will be praying for your family. I know God is very near to the broken-hearted. So I am confident that He will be holding you all close during this difficult time. God bless you all. Sincerely, Wendy Goesle Corron

Stan&Joan, I extend my deepest sympathy to you and your family on Bethel passing. I will miss my cousin Bethel and we had some great conversations on his life journey. I especially enjoyed the stories about his service in World War 11. I admired his hard work and determination for living a long life. When he was in his mid 80ies he told me he would be drawing Social Security when he was a hundred. I think he got his moneys worth from Uncle Sams.Lol, It was an honor for me to know this fellow Veteran.

He thought I was too old sometimes to talk that way. :) I send my deepest condolences in the loss of such an amazing person. He truly was. When he got tired of all the hours at work and school and wanted to quit RVC I told him to stick with it - just like a mother would. I know he will be missed.

Thank our God the world did not end then. But what I remember most of all is Don's intense faith and energy. I felt we touched each other’s soul that day. We never meet again but he did call me one day just to say the Lincoln was still going strong. May our God bless you and help you into a new chapter of your life.

I met Don about ten years ago through his work with the homeless. His passion for helping people and his amazing warmth and compassion were evident from the moment I met him. He treated everyone with respect, compassion and kindness, and he never treated those who sought his help any different than those providing help, if anything he was harder on those who had resources than those who had nothing. Not only did he step up and help he expected everyone who could, should and would. His big heart will be missed by many.

 

Charles and Jane Cairo posted on 8/12/15

Don had much energy with love for the underdog. As chaplain at Madden Mental Health Center he made sure that every patient received gifts including socks at Christmas and other holidays under the Holiday Project. Was ordained by the Evangelical Free Baptist Church, ever since he had a deep love for Jesus Christ and the Bible. Always, always said yes to anyone in need. We know he is now dancing in the golden streets of heaven...miss you Don, see you soon...

I'll always remember the many times he would come over and try to explain to Mike what his cars were doing and then tell Mike "Just fix it" - duck tape and wire hangers. Who can forget the toy give away's - "freezing for Jesus". Him and Mike are probably discussing lots of topics again. God Bless you on this journey. His Love never fails.

I have so many wonderful memories of our time together, its so hard to choose one. I have three, the very first time your hand touched mine there was a crazy spark and I knew you were someone special. The day I gave birth to Keegan you made it through the whole ordeal like a champ. And finally the last time we talked, everything felt settled and perfect between us. I will share every memory with Keegan. Love you, miss you!

I always remember Bob when he was a young boy (maybe 12 or 13) riding his bike to our house on Lake St. He would leave it by the back porch while he walked to the Paradise Theater to see a movie. He was my cousin and only 4 years older than me. I know he was suffering but now he is at peace with our dear Lord and his son, Bobby. Alice De Silvia

Just got back from S Carolina and heard of Ross passing.I'm shocked and angered by our loss. It's hard to understand how a person with so much life could be gone so soon.

Anne was faithful to God and family. What more could any of us want to have said about us when our time comes to go home. I appreciated her support and love all through my growing up years and the smile on her face when I'd come back to visit at the Belvidere Church of Christ. For our wedding, Anne gave us a beautiful cake plate and cover. I remember her saying that she wanted us to have something pretty to start our married lives. Anne later gave me a holder for plastic bags that she had made. I have thought about her and Dewon often when I put bags in or out. I will always remember them. God be with you, the family. May you know his love in this time and of course all times.

This is such sad news. Ross was such a good person and a great friend to everyone. It was a privilege to know him. He really knew how to make everyone smile. He was an exceptional athlete and a great example for everyone to follow. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends at this difficult time. We must now cherish the memories we had with him. Gone too soon.

 

Brooke Vander Weit posted on 7/10/15

I have many great memories from growing up with Ross. Riding the school bus, being classmates and friends for many years, his great smile, and of course, playing basketball at the YMCA. I have many memories of him as the great athlete that he was. He was always a good friend, had a great heart, and kind to others. I'm so sad that he has left this earth so soon, too soon. He and your family will be in my prayers.

Dolly left with such wonderful memories and her love that each of you hold closer to your hearts. She would want you to be reminded of the wonderful times you've all spent together. There's a "Home Coming Party" going on in the heavens as another Angel is called home. Just know that God will leave the party for just a little while to be with each of you encouraging you and providing all of you that extra strength to meet today and the days ahead.

I remember our camping trip to Canada when I was 11 years old. Marilyn taught me several funny songs and showed me how to make a paper chain out of gum wrappers. She was a lot of fun to be around, and I looked up to her. I'm sad for her loved ones, but happy for her, since she is now with her Savior in heaven.

 

Heather, Mike, Gabbie, Emmie and Willo Baillargeon posted on 7/8/15

Marilyn was an incredibly kind, sweet person. Both of my older daughters were lucky enough to have her for their Kindergarten teacher. To this day I still hear the songs for the days of the week, or the colors running in my head. We all treasure the special times and the warm hugs we shared with her. When Gabbie had a life threatening illness during her Kindergarten year, Marilyn was there for her, and even had the other kids in the class make cards for her while she was in the hospital. I never saw anyone so joyous and loving day in and day out as Marilyn. We are so grateful to have known her, and will miss her all our days going forward. She was extraordinary.

You are reunited with Russ and the rest of your family. You are with Jesus forever more. I miss you and when I look at flowers growing wild and beautiful I will see you and be reminded of you. Heaven has welcomed yet another beautiful angle. Thank you Barb.

There was never a time (not even once) that I was not met with a smile from Marilyn. The Joy of the Lord was evident in everything she did. She was such a servant too and ministered to my heart and the heart of so many college girls a few years ago by opening her home, feeding us, and letting us be in a space where we could learn more about Jesus. I am so thankful for the legacy of faith she has left in her family and in the lives of those who have encountered the gospel through her.

And used pumpkins not just for the altar or front-door decorations, but to cook/bake. Allen remembers all of the Sew Ladies bringing food for their Monday Sew Ladies luncheon, but she brought in more than one item and helped serve it for her contribution because she did not sew. Mary worn an apron and dresses like my beloved grandmother did. She was a 'behind the scenes' person who did not attend Sunday morning services. Peace to you during your time of loss.

So many telephone conversations over the years. Never did solve the world's problems, but maybe gained some perspective on our own with God's help! Will miss you, but am so thankful for your belief that Jesus was and is your Lord and Savior and that He had prepared a place just for you! See you again one day!

Dear Gary and Family - Karen's passing was not a surprise, and it would be normal if you felt some relief that she is no longer suffering. It is still intensely painful to lose her. Everything is different, and it will take a long time to reach a sense of normalcy in your lives. Helen Keller said, "All that we love deeply becomes a part of us." Allow yourself time to cry, grieve, and remember - and heal through the sustaining moments of laughter and joy. I will remember Karen always - her beauty, intelligence, our deep conversations, and mostly the laughter that I can still hear. Lovingly, Linda Layton, Edward Jones

So many happy memories while working with Glenda in Woodstock. I am happy that her talents were used to inform many. May Glenda's soul have eternal peace.

I have only known Ted for a few years but he was full of life and I enjoyed my time with him. We worked together at Bogle and I appreciated his musical talent as well as his business ideas . I am so sad for his family, they lost him way too early. He spoke so highly of his girls and obviously loved his family very much. It was a short friendship but I will always remember him. My thoughts are with his family.

While Ted was not a student of mine he was a close friends with many who were. In speaking to a former student he related that he had been a small kid in high school and that whenever anybody would give him trouble and Ted, though older, was around he would put an end to the bullying. We were all aware of his talent, and his humor but perhaps this memory speaks the loudest of what Ted was a truly gentle and kind man.

Dear Dennis, Beth, and family, It is awfully sad to lose someone you love very suddenly without warning. I only meet Donna once, but Beth would speak about her quite often at work. I know that she was always willing to help whenever Beth needed someone to watch the kids so she could work. I was always so thankful for that. When I met her a little over a year ago, I was not one bit surprised by her spunk as Beth had always translated that in her stories. I'm sure she left quite the impact on many people and I know you all will miss her terribly. I hope that you can think back on memories and laugh and that it helps to heal your hearts quickly. Thinking of you all.

I met Juan when he came to the shopping center in Belvidere, where his restaurant has been for many years. The first day he came with all his fixtures, which included two large tree trunks. He rolled them off the back of his pickup and into the new restaurant. He rolled them into two corners and then put large tables on top of each one. and then, seeing i was perplexed, he smiled and simply said they made good table bottoms. he was right. i think they are still there. Juan always had something positive to say and would sit with me and talk when i came to visit. He knew everyone who came to the restaurant by the end of their first visit. i am sure he could count them all as his friends. i will miss him. he will be missed by everyone. I pray that the Lord will continue to care for him now, (and know this to be true) just as Juan cared for others during his life time. it is an honor to call him my friend. Allan Hoekstra,

Uncle Fran, thanks for everything. Hosting the multi family Walberg Christmas parties was incredible! Partnering with you, your family, and my brother Jim building the two family home where my sister Pat now resides was another great experience and honor. We continue to think of you often and with love. Your godson, Stephen

I am truly sorry for your loss. The pain the family goes through during a time like this seems unbearable. The bible however does provide us with comfort and hope. Isaiah 25:8 is an example, here God promises to swallow death forever and wipe th tears from all faces. To look forward to a time where we no longer have to face such a tragedy is certainly comforting. Again I am sorry for your loss.

Sending deepest sympathy to the Cranston "girls". I have fond memories of your mother. Growing up, my family lived a few homes away on W. Jackson St. and your home was on the corner of Jackson and Kishwaukee streets in the big, beautiful house. I remember her from the First Baptist Church and Perry School years and then later when I worked at Piggly Wiggly and she shopped there. Your mom had the most up-beat personality! I can still hear her wonderful laugh when I think of her. God bless your family as this sad time.

I am so saddened to hear of Rosemary's passing. She was a wonderful neighbor and mentor when our family lived in Poplar Grove. We enjoyed many a beautiful smile, as well as those famous homemade rolls. She always seemed to have some yummy cookies in her cookie jar when we stopped by. And yes, we always admired her flowers, especially the lovely peonies. The kids used to walk their show animals, pigs, sheep and heifers up Rosemary and Franklyn's driveway in the summer. They always came outside to talk to the kids about their animals. We missed them both so much when we moved away. Love to all the family. You are blessed to have been cared for Rosemary!

I met Jim almost 40 years ago when we both worked at Cherry Valley Tool. He was always quick to smile and laugh. He shared his knowledge of so many things with me and for that I am truly grateful. He shared how proud he was of his family many times with me. There was always that twinkle in his eyes when he mentioned his children and grandchildren. Although I hadn't seen Jim in several years as friends I realize we would have picked up right where we left off. He was a man of honor and integrity and not a better friend could I ever have. My prayers and thoughts are with his family in the hopes that God gives them strength and courage in the coming days

Gordy, Debbie, and family, I’m very sorry for your loss, and for the difficult time you and he went through toward the end, the memory of which I hope eventually will fade for you and be replaced by happier reminiscences. Although I’ll remember Royal as the builder of the best house my parents ever had, by far, for me Royal's real legacy isn't what he built, but who they raised. I’m sure my Mom agrees; thanks for all you do to help her remain safely in her Royal White home, where she wants to be.

Remember the good times years ago when we all used to go snowmobiling one of the best times in my life Denny Rick john And Russ Jim, my gosh, can't remember everybody used to play sock tag on the snowmobiles. Fishing on the pontoon or just hanging out. He could always keep my attention with his wit. I will miss now that he's gone more than ever. This was one of the best people I ever knew in my whole life.May God bless him and his entire family.

My deepest sympathy to Nick, Nancy and their families. I’ll always remember Aunt Ginny for her smile, pleasant demeanor, and being immaculately groomed. She had that rare quality of having an age-less complexion and glow about her. Aunt Ginny was always the highlight of the Spotz reunions and I’d like to thank Nick and Nancy for making it possible for her to attend them. She was the last one we had to ask questions about our family heritage, which to many of us came in our senior years – when all were gone except Aunt Ginny. I’ve been blessed to have Aunt Ginny in my life and will pray that in life-ever-after, she will be blessed with peace and happiness. Allen and Nancy Spotz

Brent will be missed, had a lot of childhood memories playing on the railroad track with him, riding the pony, He had a great sense of humor.

I remember the pork chop experience on the railroad track, I was part of the experience. I fell off the pony into their driveway when they lived on Elgin St. He had such a keen sense of humor. Brent and his brothers loved playing with the toy army men my brother had, when they came to our house, plus loved playing pinball machine, and shoot pool on my older brothers billiard table.

Linda, was my dear sister in Christ Jesus. I have known her for several years, meeting her through the couple that brought her to the Lord, Armond and Helen Simone. Helen always known as "Grandma Joy". They were her mentors and dearest friends for a long time. Linda and I traveled together several time on always enjoyed my time with one of the sweetest Christians I have ever known. She loved the Lord with all her heart and was always looking forward to His return. She, I believe in his her glory at home in glory with her Lord and Savior. I have missed here since her illness procressed to where she didn't remember me anymore. I will always miss her smiling face, cheerful laugh and her quest for all the adventures life had to offer. But always waiting for the Lord's comingl. I have always loved her like a sister and will miss her like a sister, but so great that Christian bonds held us together. Prayers go out to her families and especially to her husband Paul, who took such marvelous care of her.. Thank you so much Paul, whom I also condiser a dear friend. God Bless You as you begin to put the rest of your life together. I light a candle in memory of Linda Frykholm, a shinning light for Jesus in this dark world I am so happy for you I can't stop smiling. Thank God for bringing you into my life as a shinning example of what the word Grace means to all of us. Till we meet againin our true and everlasting HOME. Love you, Donna t

Every time I'm by rail road tracks I think back to my childhood growing up in Cherry Valley, running down the gravel alley to the Baxters house where we'd all meet up. Brent , Tim Hooker , Brad Baxter and a slew of others. We'd go through their back yard down a gully and up to the tracks ( game on ! ) we'd spend most of the day on those tracks and beyond. Those were glorious times and I will never forget. Rest in peace Brent and Gods speed.

I want to express my sincere sympathy for the loss of your loved one and share the hope promised in the Bible. Jesus promised that “those in the memorial tombs will…come out.” (John 5:28, 29) In harmony with God’s original purpose, those resurrected as humans will have the opportunity to live on a paradise earth. (Luke 23:43)This promised future includes perfect health and everlasting life for obedient humans. The Bible says: “The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.” (Psalms 37:29)

Grandma, I will miss you so much. I have enjoyed all the phones over the years, and will cherish my 2 sets of 5 generation photos.

I loved to see the sparkle in your eyes when family members would come and stop for a visit.

Boyce and I were blessed to have your mom make the dresses for my wedding attendants, and your Dad married us in 1968. In the last few years, your mom was so gracious to allow my younger sister, Mary and me stay with her on different occasions when we came back to visit my sister, Isabelle Elliott. I also remember our days at Washington Elementary. Please accept our thanks for all they did for us and know that we truly loved and respected them highly. May God be with all of you as you go through the coming days, weeks and months. Please be assured that they are looking down on each of you and saying, "We will be watching and waiting for each of you....Just look for us at the feet of Jesus....We will be watching and waiting as each of you make your entrance into that Beautiul City". Give our love to all! Boyce and Rosie

Dear Family, I am so very sorry for your loss especially at this time of the year but then I am thinking for LaDosca it was perfect time to join all the celebrating in Heaven. I know the Angels are saying "She's here! She's here!" LaDosca was an amazing woman and was always working in God's service. I know that God must be saying , "Well done my loyal and faithful Servant." Please know you all will be in my prays during the days ahead.

 

Dr Bob Griffin posted on 12/23/14

Our prayers are with the family and friends of Ladosca. We only met her a decade ago when many her age would have been spending time rocking and knitting. Instead, she was GIVING and GOING, gathering food and clothes for the needy and focused on others, not herself. More energy than women a quarter her age and a vision of ministry far beyond modern myopia of the selfie-generation. I will miss her bossy-ness (a GOOD trait) in doing and being "Jesus-in-action" to so many whom she loved and loved her (including my Rockford grandkids)

 

Jeremiah Griffin posted on 12/23/14

Oh how our sweet friend will be missed here in this Kingdom on earth! Such a dear saint and so influential with the power of the Gospel and the working of the Holy Spirit in so many lives. Ladosca (that is what she asked me to call her) was a huge encouragement in our family to be doing the things that we are doing. From the ministry itself to the very fabric of our home. Even yesterday my oldest daughter came up from doing laundry in tears because the pants and the belt were both "finds" from Ladosca at Goodwill or the Salvation Army. I have many shirts from her but the greatest gift was the encouragement to be strong and be faithful in the ministry. To say she will be missed is an understatement. In her latest adventure in Church Planting Ladosca embodied Titus 2:3 "The aged women likewise, that they be in behavior as becomes holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of honesty" May the next generation carry on the blessings and teaching her life represented.

I feel so bad that I didn't know as I would have come for her service for sure! I had just reordered the 2 magazines I have sent her for the past few years. Please accept our sincere condolences for your loss. I hope all of Sherry's children were able to be with her before her death. She was such an inspiration to me....even thru her darkest hours of sorrow and rejection, she never lost faith in her Lord. I am so happy for her that she is finally there with Him, relieved at last from the worries of this world.

It is with great sadness that I heard about Lorraine's passing. Lorraine was a care giver for my Aunt Mary and Uncle Ernie Braun. Lorraine was more like one of the family. We dearly loved her. She certainly earned her wings here on earth. The world has suffered a loss the day Lorraine passed. My condolences are extended to all of the family members that Lorraine has touched. May God bring you all comfort and peace and may Lorraine find her eternal happiness as she passes through the gates of heaven and is once again reunited with those she helped and loved.

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

No matter her age, a mother's/grandma's death is a sad and difficult time but coupled with the promise of peace – and she is missed very much. We pray for people you need, who most sensitively mediate God’s love, to be in your lives – to be God’s love to you now and later. May you Look to the Lord and his Strength, (from Psalm 105:1,4)

Ah Willy.... like a shooting star you shone over us, then left us way too soon. What a man: highly intelligent yet street-smart as well. A guy who enjoyed and lived life to the fullest. A guy whose Irish charm and blarney could sell anything to anyone. A guy whose quick wit and bonhomie lit up any room and those around him. A guy who was an excellent businessman with a strong sense of integrity. When it came to cars and trucks, there are no more capable automotive technicians around -- Willy was a superb diagnostician and wasn't afraid to tackle -- and fix -- problems that had baffled many another mechanic. William could have been highly successful in any profession he chose. But the life he chose was "Willy's way" and no friend or relative, no matter how long and hard they tried could persuade William to live life any differently. Sandra and I had the privilege and pleasure of working with William for almost seven years. In those days I was a close to William as one can get. We never had a bad word between us. On a daily basis William just put his shoulder to the wheel and did what was right -- for us, for our customers, and for his family. He added his "Hollywood" glow to our business, making all the lives he touched brighter and better. Our condolences to William's family for their loss.
