A Good Deed that Should be Noted.

I read this in the Kankakee Daily Journal today and thought that it should be recognized. 
Hooray for Belleville, Illinois!!

BELLEVILLE — Acquaintances of a homeless man who died in southwestern Illinois are coming together to give him a proper funeral. The Belleville News-Democrat reported Randy Glore will be buried Monday in Belleville. Someone found the 56-year-old's body on March 27 behind a gas station dumpster. Overnight temperatures had fallen to near freezing. The official cause of death was exposure to the elements. Those who knew Glore described him as friendly and a talented singer. He'd perform at open-mic nights at an area club. The director of Mount Carmel Cemetery, Joe Hubbard, knew Glore. He supplied a gravesite. Faith Baptist Church is providing a bus for friends to attend Monday's service. Steven Mueller Florist is providing the flowers. Mueller said "nothing makes" him "sadder than someone without flowers at his funeral."

This site started originally as one page on my family website in 2001 about the "Chatsworth Wreck", which has always been of interest to me,and a few pictures in my albums.
As I accumulated more and more information from books and online, it took so much storage space that I started
"Chatsworth Illinois Memories" as a site of it's own in 2002.

I hope you enjoy the site !!
