We lost Papa last night at about 7:30. Several members of the family were with him in Rochelle as he passed quietly in his sleep. The rest of us were enroute.
We will have a memorial service the week after Easter.
He is and will be greatly missed.

I don’t have names going further out. If you read this and want a flower name please let me know. It would be easiest to remember who you are if your name had something to do with you or had the same starting letter.
If you don’t pick your flower name then I will when news comes up about you.
As of 8 August 2013 I will be again using this blog to post family and personal related matters.
I will be revamping Illini6 as a more professional site.
Also as of this date I will not be using the flower code words anymore. It was just too cumbersome and at times kept me from posting.
I will use first names only and/or initials to minimize the exposure of full real names.
I will not be posting about future events for the most part, just reporting on past events.
I will leave the list of flower names for reference on any posts that pre-date this re-opening.
