Touching story! I think most of the marriages from WWII era lasted long compared to these days. RIPRead More Mr. & Mrs. Gay...

Charles-I agree with you but marriage has been redefined. I think households worked better whenRead More roles were more established. We will not see those days again.

Dan, I also agree with you. The leave it to beaver days worked. God only knows what will happen inRead More the next 30 yrs. My parents were married for 51 yrs when my dad passed. I can't imagine being with my husband that long (joking).

My condolences to Hunter's family. My famly didn't know him, but both my 13 and 7 year old boysRead More are in the same Ide/Prairieview/Lakeview school system. We all went to a few fundraiser events for him that hopefully helped the situation at least a little bit. I will always remember the fateful night when Hunter was hit. I was driving home, saw a police car blocking Lemont Rd. at 83rd St., and glanced further south down Lemont Rd. to see perhaps a dozen police cars with their lights flashing. My heart sank as I feared that something terrible had happened where my grandmother lives - a few doors down from Beller & Lemont. Due to the proximity to my grandmother's home, I drove through the neighborhood around the police blockade to check it out. It was dark and I couldn't get close enough to see clearly, but I saw a pickup truck with what appeared to be a bike stuck well underneath it. The crowd of spectators and I hoped that no one was seriously hurt (Hunter and the driver were already removed from the scene by that time). Sadly, we now know the whole horrific story. I wish I had a time machine so I could go back to 2/26/12 and be standing there to stop Hunter from riding into the crosswalk. Hunter's memory will be with our family forever. When we walk or bike through intersections and stop at crosswalks when driving, we're all going to think about him and be more careful in every way.

I never knew him .. he was in a grade above ours . Although I saw him pass in the hallways every nowRead More and then . I had went to support him every time there was an event . Hunter, I know this may be a late response to your incident, but I would like to say, you seemed a nice guy . I hope you're at peace now . Now, at your old middle school which I am still at, we are doing all of these safety tips, still . My best wishes to the Himes family . The whole LVJHS has had hope for Hunter since day 1 until the last .
