Kelly, I'm really sorry for your loss. Your Dad sounds like he was quite a man and I'm sure you and your kids will miss him a lot.

I am so sorry for your loss. Your dad always made me smile. He was so funny. I am glad he had a peaceful exit after what must have been a very difficult illness.

Pete was a customer and a friend to our Ace Hardware store in Tinley Park for as long as we can remember. You always knew when he was in the store and he always left us smiling when he was gone. You have our sincere sympathy. We will all miss him.

I am deeply saddened at the loss of my fraternal brother, friend, and partner at the Cook County Sheriff's Office. He was a very unique and special man in so many ways, and I will miss him greatly. May he rest in God's hands and may you all find peace in his memory.
