IN MEMORY

PHYLLIS RONA BUTCHER
1950 — 2007
I AM WITH YOU STILL

I give you this one thought to keep
I am with you still — do not weep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone —
I am with you still — in each new dawn.
Love Always,
Butch, Jarred, Family & Friends
We keep this in our hearts always, until we meet again…

The dearest wife, mother, grandmother God ever gave.
We miss you and

THANK YOU

THE FAMILY OF
CHRIS CARMACK

Our deepest thanks and gratitude for all the support given to us during a most difficult time. We so appreciated the cards and kind words, food, flowers and memorial contributions during Chris’s brief (“crazy fast”) illness and after his passing. We’d like to give a special thanks to our family members, friends and neighbors for their frequent visits to the house to help — usually with great meals to sustain us and strong backs to assist us. We have so many other “families” to thank as well from work, church and school, Chris’s “adopted” Greek family and our baseball family members, of course. We loved seeing former coaches and players from so many Rock Island sports teams at the visitation and funeral service.
Thank you to the caregivers from Heartland Hospice, and especially our primary nurse, Tiffany, for making it possible for Chris to be cared for at home. We appreciated the personal service from Steve and the staff from Wheelan-Pressly Funeral Home, Calvary Cemetery, Dr. Constantinou and his staff for their care and compassion, Chris’s “personal” pharmacist, Jake, and Father Schaab for the wonderful eulogy and service. We also thank Chris’s “poker buddies” and Rolle Bolle teammates for keeping his spirits up to the end!
We are consoled because we know that as Chris captured so many memories for others, he is now getting the best aerial video ever!

IN MEMORY

were spoken,
No time to say goodbye.
You were gone before
we knew it,
And only God knows why,
Love,

IN MEMORY

TARA MAE KELLEHER
4/11/77 — 9/4/06
AND
SEALLY MAE WALLACE
2/22/02 — 5/17/14

Hi Tara Mae and Seally Mae. I trust both of you are healthy and doing well!
As you know, Tara Mae, Seally Mae is now in heaven with you. You loved Seally Mae and she loved you very, very much. I know you remember when I called you and told you that I had given Seally your middle name “Mae”, and I remember how you laughed and how proud you were. I also remember when you came into our condo and you were so proud that you had realized that you had seen that Seally had a burr in her foot and you had removed it. You always wanted me to give her to you — but I couldn’t (wouldn’t). Obviously though, God finally gave you your wish. So, now both of you take care of each other and have fun!
You are also aware that the three of us are moving to Portland, Oregon — yes, the three of us. It’s both exciting and scary, but with both of you with me, it should be terrific!
I felt that the picture taken in South Padre Island was appropriate as we all had so much fun there.
I love both of you very, very much and as I am each day a little older yet, the time shortens until we are 100% together again.
My eternal love to both of you,
Tom Wallace

THANK YOU

THE FAMILY OF BOB MORENO

We would like to extend sincere gratitude to all the family, relatives and friends who offered their condolences and support to us at his passing.
We would also like to offer a special thank you to Smokey’s Country Diner, El Mariachi Restaurant, M.A.V.A., Father Fredi, Fr. Chase, Our Lady of Guadalupe Lady’s Group and Legion of Mary and the ICU staff at the Medical Center of McKinney for their care and comfort. Finally to Van Hoe Funeral Home who assisted us from the beginning in Texas until well after he was laid to rest.
The loss has been difficult and he will be missed. But all of you, and anyone we may have missed, have made it more comforting for our family.

IN MEMORY

HARLEY COX
6/28/37 — 7/29/11

Dad,
It has been three years since
you passed from this life, and
we miss you so very much.
Now you have your youngest
with you and we miss her too,
but are glad that you are both
resting together. She told me
that the two of you would be
getting the place ready for the
rest of us. I hope that is true,
but I wish that you both were
still here with us, happy and
healthy. You are always in our
thoughts and forever in our
hearts, till we are together
again.
Much love always,
Your Family

IN MEMORY

SHERRI SHEA
1/12/66 — 7/15/12

What if the brilliant,
twinkling stars
that bring the dark night sky
to life
are windows looking out
of heaven?
And at the very moment
when we’re wishing on
those stars,
hoping that the loved ones
we have lost are happy,
safe and free…
maybe they are looking at those same stars
from the other side,
making the same wish for us…
sending us all their love.
Sadly Missed By
Friends & Family

Local events heading








  Today is Thursday, Oct. 2, the 275th day of 2014. There are 90 days left in the year.

1864 -- 150 years ago: The ladies have adopted the fashion of wearing representations of insects in the flowers on their bonnets. Some look very natural.
1889 -- 125 years ago: T.F. Cary, former Rock Island alderman, has accepted a position as salesman for a Chicago wallpaper house and plans to move to that city.
1914 -- 100 years ago: Work on the new telephone building on 18th Street between 6th and 7th avenues is progressing rapidly.
1939 -- 75 years ago: Rock Island's new theater at 3rd Avenue and 19th Street will have a name significant of its location. The "Rocket" is scheduled to open Thanksgiving Day.
1964 -- 50 years ago: Two of Rock Island's newest water towers were vandalized last night, including the one at 38th Street and 31st Avenue, where police took five Moline boys into custody about 9 p.m..
1989 -- 25 years ago: Some of us who live in the Quad-Cities take the Mississippi River for granted, or at least we used to. But the river is not taken for granted by our visitors. And most Quad-Citians are realizing the importance of the river to this area as increased emphasis is placed on tourism.
