My Heartfelt sympathies to Heather's Family, Heather you were a spirit like no other, I knew you well enough to consider you my friend, meeting you was like I had known you my entire life. You had a calm friendly way about you making anyone feel at ease, You always asked about how I was doing and of course that million dollar smile that would light an entire city. My Sister and I didn't make it over to your house to see you, we wanted to on your Birthday but they already had to call out Belvidere's finest for crowd control, lol. You told me not to wait to long, Im sorry time got away from us and we waited to long, your now flying high with the Angels. I won't be able to make it to your visitation this friday, My daughter needs me right now so that's where I need to be, knowing you would understand. The Gathering this Friday will be huge, because you were loved by so many and each one of them if able will turn out to show there LOVE to your family and you will be looking down from above with that beautiful smile, Im sorry you won't see me but you will feel my heart as it is sad that I won't be able to see you other than pictures but I will never ever forget your inner beauty and kindness. Im thankful you feel no pain now, you battled the nasty disease with dignity, can't say I would be as strong. Love you Heather Always.. Teresa

To the Schultz family: Craig was one of the nicest pers People you could meet. So friendly and outgoing with sincere kindness. We worked at The Associates Finance both in the Rockford and Belvidere branches. Craig was great in math and I never met anyone after Craig, who was in finance, that could adequately explain what the Rule of 70's method for calculating interest was but Craig could! I always remember him making sure the kids got their homework done and had patience of a saint as a parent. Craig loved Karoke and had a great voice. Still can hear him singing "what's going on" by 5 dumb blondes or whomever the group was..lol..Craig knew every song by every group that was ever done I think! Hope I got the group correct! Great guy and so glad he got to spread his wings in politics later on in his life. Deb Lyons Mike and Kristen. Rockford Il.

She was absolutely the best grandmother anyone could ever hope for. She was always there for us, always ready to give her opinion, and wisdom. She wasn't perfect, she had no shame telling us that. But in every way, she was perfect for us. (grandma, I love you. Wish I could be there. I'm sorry I couldn't say goodbye.)

Dearest Margaret and Family's of Craig, We are so very sorry for your loss. There are not enough words to bring comfort to you. Your loss is great. We to as friends of Craig are brokenhearted. Craiger was an inspiration for so many of us and he will be missed. Craig loved his Hometown and always had great aspirations for it. That vivacious smile he always had when he seen you just brighten any day. I know he had a relationship with our Creator and always had praises as well as quetions. He always took each step in his day with faith. Death has a bad name on earth but in heaven it is a housewarming party everytime the door opens. Craig is enjoying the gift of God's love as he is being greeted by all those who went before him. We can just imagine his father Jim throwing his arms around Craig and is showing him around the place we've only read about. Craig would want his family and friends to know God won't forget all of us who are grieving. God will leave this homecoming party early and enter into our dispair and pain providing strength and encouragement so we can uplift each other during this dfficult time. Our sympathies and condolances are reaching out to each family member especially you Margaret as Craig's mother. All our love and prayers Don & Gloria Peck

It is interesting that Tuty's very full life would pass during the Mother's Day week as Tuty practiced qualities that made an amazing Mother. She was full of energy, knowledgeable in many areas, willing to commit time and leadership to her interests and especially generous with sharing her talents. I personally learned many things from Tuty in our participation in the local Colonial Dames organization, but I will miss mostly her terrific sense of humor and honor. She is already missed.

So sorry for your loss. Dale was across the hall from my sister, Karen Schrader, so I stopped in a couple of times to see him as well. I will always remember his smiling face.

 

Diane Robinson posted on 4/17/16

Dale and my Mother were in the same nursing home and often sat together for lunch, where Nancy and I would discuss the ups and downs of the days. I could usually get Dale to smile with my stories of my feeble attempts at a golf game; always ending badly, which would bring a smile to the corner of his eyes. I was blessed to have known both he and Nancy. My Mother passed away just one month before. May the God who loves us all so deeply continue to strengthen and sustain Nancy and the family in the days to come. God bless you all. ~ Diane Robinson

Butch, eh, Frank, although we never called him that, helped define my childhood. Butch was the brother my parents didn't give birth to and lived down the street. Once we all had separate cabins at Richard's in Haywood, WI. If I remember correctly, we were barely into double digits, in terms of age. We didn't want to get up early to go fishing. We wanted to sleep in. So, all the adults went fishing. Butch, Cindy Mace and I wanted to go swimming. The only problem was that none of us knew how. Plus it was cold. So, we made a deal. Whoever got the life-vest on and jumped in the deep end of the pool first would get a quarter from the other two. He saved Cindy's life that day. She was in such a rush to win 50 cents that she put her life-vest on wrong. She was busy flailing and I was too busy laughing to appreciate the severity of the situation. Butch was laughing too, but at least he thought to extend the pool net to her so he could pull her out. While camping at a California National Park, he was at my side when we gave up roasting marshmallows to run to the tent because on-lookers warned us that there a bear at our campsite. It was dark. We couldn't see it. We knew weren't supposed to run. We were supposed to WALK. However, at 13 & 14, we ran. The crowd told us to get in the car. But Mom & Dad were armed. They were in the tent. So, we ran to the tent. We turned the corner of the tent and came face-to-face with the bear. Dad unzipped the tent door to see what all the shouting was about, which the bear was standing right in front of. It was dark and the light from the tent made the bear turn his head. Then Butch and I ran to the truck. All Butch and I heard was Dad repeatedly ask Mom to give him his camera. That same month-long trip to California there were other things we all still remember and laugh about. For those of you who didn't know Butch, he was tall.. I know all teenage boys eat a lot, but, he would eat his entire meal before some of us even finished preparing our meals - at restaurants. He'd hover; leaning over, watching you lift a fork full of food from your plate to your mouth. Then point to something on your plate and ask: "You gonna eat that?" At one point we lost Butch on a hiking trail. Mom & Dad got the rangers involved because it was getting dark. They organized search parties. Everyone spreading out & calling his name. When we finally heard him answer, he was asked "Where are you?". His answer was "Over here"; as though that was going to be helpful. I suppose it was helpful, since he was told to keep yelling so the searchers could follow the sound of his voice. He gave me a scar on my head. He ran the bases and couldn't figure out why everyone was leaving the field. He felt horrible. He is God-Father to Lisa, our youngest. He wore a "Bob's Son" T-Shirt at my Dad's 60th birthday party. Even long distance he as always been part of our lives. He was loved and will be missed. Kathy, Bob & Mike you and your families will remain in our prayers. The void Butch's absence leaves will be difficult. Please know that you're not alone; Christ walks beside you. Michele

The short time that I had a privilege of getting to know Frank it was truly an honor. In speaking with him he always had a smile on his face and something positive to say, always so willing to help as I was working on the house. I found myself while talking to him always laughing. It was my privilege to have gotten to know him, he was one of the nicest people I have ever met. You will truly be missed, you left this world much too soon. God Bless!

Spending my high school years (and beyond) as great friends with Mr. Moser's "kids"-- Dan and Anne-- I have so many fond memories of talking with Mr. Moser over the years about all kinds of topics. Instrumental in trying to keep Dan and me out of any "trouble" :) Owed him big apology when I left his home's front door wide open in Carmel, IN in winter when I moved Dan to Chi-town... oops. I could go on and on, but no doubt Mr. Moser was kind, intelligent and authentic, as the article states. One more fond memory of him occurred in 1983 when he kinda surprisingly visited me and our other high school buddy Jim at Univ of Cincinnati by himself to attend Jim's senior percussion recital after-party at my apartment with large group of UC seniors/musicians. Great drinks, conversations, and memories, for sure. My best thoughts & prayers to Mrs. Moser, Dan, Anne, and Anne's family... hope he reconnects with Wendy (the dog), who I also miss :)

Hold tightly to the wonderful memories she has left you and thank god for the time he allowed you to have together.

To all who may read this: Judy was a true friend in every sense. It never mattered what period of time passed between conversations or visits, Judy made you feel like you had just seen her. She always let you feel her love for you. It was a remarkable gift God gave her. Our conversations always ended with the same words, "I love you" and those words we said to each other the last time we spoke. While I watched the photo show at Judy's service yesterday, one photo caught my attention and at first I didn't understand why. When the photo came around again , I realized that the photo was taken in my home many years ago, and my Mother's Miami Beach Birthday cake was on the table in front of Judy and Jim. Not only did I receive a happy memory with my friends, I received one from my Mother who is with Judy and they're both smiling. Rest well my dear friend and know that one day we'll see each other again and say, "I love you".

One of our telephone conversations where I first called you Guttersnype and you called me Harry Potter's sister. It was this conversation that we both opened up and shared a lot of our pain. It was in that moment I knew you were a special kind of man and I felt honoured that you felt you could confide in me. We talked many times, some over the phone, but mostly on Facebook. And though I never actually met you I still felt a strong connection and you told me you did too. I wish you could have come over, like we talked about. I will always love and miss you. Rest in peace, my dear friend.

My heart aches for soo many family and friends of Shawn who I know feel the loss of such a wonderful and special spirit. Shawn always had a way to light up a room and lend an ear to those who needed it. On several occasions he spoke with me and brought a smile to my face when I was feeling down. Although we will all surely miss him greatly, let us all remember the thing Shawn would want the most for us all, what he gave...happiness. In time I pray the many fun memories and happiness that Shawn gave us will be felt again, even in his physical absence, and we can all again smile at the thought of the very social person we were blessed to know.

That was many years ago, but still quite vivid in my mind. Judy loved entertaining and was a great hostess. Keeping you both in my prayers. Love you; Aunt Bev.

Jory, The Aldermans' will always remember you. I cannot reminisce about Greg and Matt's childhood without seeing you with them riding your bikes down Chambers drive or playing at the park in back of our house. You and Greg were best buds, full of mishchief, full of fun. Then as teenagers hanging out, always in your hoodies with your earbuds in your ears, a little rebellious as teenagers will be sometimes. You will remain in our hearts and in our memories as long as we live. Your life was too short. I only hope that you are reunited with your mom, and eternally happy in Heaven.

Dear family and friends, I am so deeply sorry to hear about your loss. Duane will be missed, but not forgotten because Jesus' words found at (John 5:28,29) says there will be resurrection. So what this mean is that Duane will be given a fresh new start without sickness and death (Rev. 21:4) with the prospect of living forever in a peaceful new world. (Psalms 37:29) I hope these promises found in the Bible bring comfort knowing that you have an opportunity to see him again to share more wonderful times together.

Dan, Kelly, Sarah, John and family , I am so sorry for the loss of your mom and grandmother. Such a strong woman! She will be a tough act to follow, but she has left you with that strength and courage to move on even when things may not look so promising. The last couple of years of her life, struggling with one health issue after another, she never gave up. I'm so thankful to have known her as my Aunt, and will miss hearing updates about her from you, Kelly. May God richly bless your family with wonderful memories, peaceful thoughts and the comfort that only comes from Him.

My heart goes out to the family! When we lose a loved one suddenly and at a time when it seems their life has just begun it is extremely difficult. Death at any age is unnatural and not a part of God’s original purpose, so for good reason the Bible calls death an enemy- one that God through Jesus Christ will soon eliminate (1 Corinthians 15:26).

So sorry to hear of Phil's passing. I was also classmate for all six years at Concordia, Milwaukee. We entered there as boys and left as young men - as close as many brothers. It was indeed a gift to enjoy seeing each other at the reunion in Mequon and reliving those days from years past. We know that Phil is with the Lord, where we will see and be with him in eternity. Job 19: 25-27 is certainly appropriate. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Pat and I send special condolences to Jackie. Dean

I always felt that Pat's Mother must be special because her daughter was always friendly and nice to me. I want to send her my condolences because I know exactly how she feels right now. I lost my Mother 11 years ago and I think and miss her every day. Sometime tears roll down my face over a simple memory. Please know that she is now with the Lord and a better place.

I would like her family to know that Leatha was one special lady. We were neighbors with her and Wendall for numerous years. We had the pleasure of raising two kids with her being our neighbor. She so enjoyed our children as much as our children enjoyed her. We moved away when our children were about seven and five. There wasn't a birthday or holiday that went by that they didn't receive a card from her with a dollar or two in it. Our kids are now 18 and 20 and they still remember Leatha. I'm sure when they hear the news of her passing they will reflect back on their younger years and the special place that she had in their heats. God bless your family. Sincerely Rick Lutzow

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.

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.

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.......

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 thoughts and prayers are with you all. 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.

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....

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.

When I was just starting out as a young pastor, I boarded in Evelyn's basement suite. She was such a wonderful person, full of life, joy and humor. 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. Grace and peace to all of you who had been touched by her life. Greg Drummond, Halifax, NS, Canada

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.

Jon, I'm so sorry for your loss. I'll alway treasure the New Years Eve memories I have of years ago in Stoughton at Wally and Laurie's. Trudy's smile and laugh were infectious. 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.

We extend our sympathy to my cousins. Unfortunately Fred never met her. My parents Marc and Mae Semmelroth loved your mother dearly.I remember when your parents lived on Newton Road and Ann had Siamese kittens and I loved cats and never had a Siamese just barn cats. So some how we got a kitten from her. There are many fond memories of your mother that I reflect on now. May God continue to give you strength, comfort and support not only during this time but each day. May your memories help comfort your loss. God Bless

I had the pleasure of working with your Mother for many years. I'm also a music teacher and enjoyed my time with her at our music meetings. We had the opportunity to share our ideas and new music with others in a welcoming environment. She will be missed by many. I hope some of her former students will also log on to your site. God be with you all in this difficult time.

Your mother was one of the most faithful members of Holy Trinity Church. She was always friendly and kind, especially to my mother and father. I remember the sumptuous holiday meals at their home. She was one of the best cooks around. May she rest in peace and rise in Glory.

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. His constant positivity and encouragement was such a blessing to so many, including myself. He truly loved the Lord and loved people. He is missed so much, but I am rejoicing that he is seeing his Savior face to face!

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!!!!!!!

Condolences on your loss. It was such a pleasure to work with Phyllis at the bank for so many years. She was missed after her retirement and she will be greatly missed now by her friends and former co-workers. Please keep your memories close to your heart as you navigate the difficult days ahead.

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.

Annette and Family, I'm sorry to learn of the passing of your Mother. I've known your Family since working with your Dad in the late 60s and 70s. I don't recall how many years we worked together but you were quite young when you came to SMT. May your Mother rest in peace.

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.

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.

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!

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.

We must now cherish the memories we had with him. Gone too soon.

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.

He and your family will be in my prayers.

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.

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.

Karen was a very special woman. She touched me greatly with the time I was able to spend with her. She was very loved and that was easy to see. I feel blessed that I was able to be there to support her and care for her. A blessed chance to care for your Mom that I didn't get with mine. Thats how special of a woman she was and will always remain, in our hearts. She will truly be missed.

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

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.

John worked for me at Bunzl Minneapolis. I was very saddened to hear of his passing. We spent a lot of time together working in Northern WI, plus a little golf. I learned a lot from John. He will be missed. My condolences to Doris and the family.

My father's brother, and always the definition of an uncle to me. You remained when so many others had left, and became my only uncle. Thank you for being there on those vacations, for being there on that cold morning when our furnace quit working, for the little television in your basement where I saw the Beatles for the first time, for your service to our country, for being my father's big brother, for many things, large and small. Thank you for making me proud to know we shared a common history and blood.

Stopped by his restauraunt regularly when I still lived in Belvidere and made it a habit to stop in when I came to visit to see him . Was always a great place and a great guy. Will be missed, rip Juan.

 

Allan Hoekstra posted on 5/16/15

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,

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.

i have so many memories of Uncle Russ, but my favorite times were having coffee up at the restaurant in the mornings...it helped me so much after losing Dad, his love and support will always be remembered, but I am comforted that there is a big table with coffee poured and the stories will live on forever, with him and all those Lee brothers!

I will miss the all too many times. He used to try to get me going with his sly remarks. He always made me laugh. 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
