Sunday is a good day to remember friends one has not seen for the last forty (40) years. The best surprises are unexpected and out of the blue someone reaches out to contact you from years past, and then one starts to recall about the last time you were sociable and friendly–May 27, 1977, at Madonna High School Graduation Day–forty years ago.

Oh! Only Facebook can transcend the years, distance, and procrastination to make it possible for someone to communicate with former classmates during a moment in time. Even a nanosecond on a mobile phone can seem like a lifetime. One can easily miss the Facebook Messenger call or the mobile cellular telephone number.

Hello! The Messenger brought me out of a summer reverie and into a 40-year time lapse. What happened during the last 40 years?

Facebook Messenger allows Friends and subscribers to contact each other via text Chat, a telephone call or face-to-face by means, of a Video Chat. One can record VOX and even leave a Voice Message. Then, wait for a response call, just like a telephone.

It can be immediate to Chat or it may take a whole week to get a Facebook Message.

When the time comes to meet after 40 years–it seems like a lifetime has passed already and reality checks in one’s mind.

What happened in forty (40) years, one starts to wonder? Time does fly from the year 1977 to the year 2017. People also recall “remembrances of things past”, just like the French writer Marcel Proust did in his novel.

Life is not a dream. Reality Check. Thanks for the memories!

On Wednesday mornings, Interpersonal Communication comes to mind at the Edgewater Senior Center during Group Discussion weekly. There is a regular group of seniors who meet for open discussion on a given topic assigned by the Social Worker for one (1) hour every week. The subject of “Friendship” inspired and motivated everyone to share personal experiences about friendship over the years and a lifetime.

Before meeting with the group, many of the senior participants do give thought to the Interpersonal Group Topic in mind, beforehand, which allows a person to recollect, recall, and remember over the years, even a lifetime of experiences. Everyone has a turn speaking out loud during the Group Discussion on Wednesdays, for one (1) hour, after attendance is taken by writing out names on the Social Worker’s Group Participant Sheet. One has to think about what to say in order to share relevant experiences during a lifetime with the others in the Group Discussion.

The subject of Friendship allows one to recall everyone who has been a “Friend” as far back as early childhood. Even children, young people, adults, and elders who were meaningful helpers as childhood friends, who helped one to grow, walk, talk, and learn to communicate at the age of 2 or 3 years old. Friends can be others, not your parents, father or mother, nor brothers or sisters. So, Friendship can be timeless when one remembers over the years those who have helped a person during the process of growing up, learning to speak and listen, early reading and writing, going to school, rites of passage, growing pains of youth, early adulthood, and the ever challenging stage of maturity—that is to say, experiencing life’s trials and tribulations as one gets older in time, space, and physical presence.

During early childhood, Kindergarten classmates can be meaningful, as well as the first teacher one has ever had in school. Grammar school classmates from elementary school also remember growing together as time goes by in one’s lifetime. High school friends also remain in one’s life as a test of time after sharing the growing pains of adolescence and surviving the challenges of high school together—it is a great accomplishment to graduate from high school and live to talk about it, nowadays. High school co-workers during one’s first job also stand the test of time as friends, while people continue their working life and return into one’s life during the course of a lifetime.

College friends have a special place in one’s heart, but may not remain there over a lifetime. Even when the closest friendships develop over the college years and graduate school at the university level. Sometimes, friendships do not hold the test of time nor are friends as loyal as they used to be before college graduation or graduate school graduation at the university. However, people do remember those who were classmate friends in college or graduate school over time, space, and physical presence. Friendship can be timeless.

Over the years, as one gets older, a person can acquire lots of friends who remember you as someone who was interested in being a friend, walking, talking, going out, dating, having lunch, dining together in a class group during the French Club meetings in Chicago, Skokie, Lincolnwood, etc.

Other friendships may have developed during group activities by playing sports like volleyball tournament leagues at the Broadway Armory Park over the years. Now that the Broadway Armory Park is celebrating a centennial anniversary, many people remember the friendships made over the years while playing sports and exercising for athletic performance.

Pen pals can also become friends over time, space, and physical presence, no matter how far the distance can be, letter writing correspondence has been known to develop longtime friendships which stand the test of time. Letter-writing to friends can be a good form of communication to develop a strong friendship. Friendship is timeless.

Good friends remain loyal, supportive, and available over time, space, and physical presence, no matter where people are located around the world. Friendship can be timeless. Good friends remember you during good times and at bad times. Good friends reach out to you when you need them for support, a listening ear or good word, even critical comments.

Psychic friends belong to the collective consciousness community who use their minds to help others in time of need, despair, disaster, distress, displacement, and many of life’s challenges.

During the 21st century, with the advent of social media and the world wide web, there is a new type of social media friendship which can be a “virtual” friendship over the internet and the cyber world of information technology using personal computers, mobile cellular telephones, portable devices, satellite telecommunications, etc.

Men and women can be good friends over time, space, and physical presence. Even LGBTQI can become good friends during interpersonal communication groups or even in other social interactions and situations, given the opportunity to share experiences.

Friendship is based upon a mutual agreement between two or more people who want to share time, affection, feelings, emotions, empathy, sympathy, honesty, transcendence, understanding, compassion, trust, lodging accommodations, life experiences, travel adventures, voyages abroad, company, meals, personal interests, dining experiences, interpersonal communication, common goals, missions, resources, information, transportation, living quarters, houses, etc.

Friendship is timeless even when good friends change over time, space, and physical presence.

“Friends are friends in any language”.

Every year in May, Chicago celebrates “Older Americans Month” since 1963 to acknowledge and recognize senior citizens, their life experiences, and their achievements. As people get older every year, life changes with perceptions of time, lifestyles, age, occupation, demographics, logistics, health, fitness, and choices made during a life time.

There are life enrichment programs for Chicagoans who are now 60 years and older. Senior centers provide facilities, amenities, and programs for those who are willing to explore renewed interests, goals, and life-long dreams during a new or second chance in life.

The process of aging gracefully now involves re-defining old age by a different generation of “baby boomers” who are actually discarding clichés and outdated perceptions about old people and experiencing life with more freedom to live the way they want to live. Now in the Spring 2017, seniors can actually “Age Out Loud” and express by their example how they are living their lives as they are getting older in the new millennium. A passion for life is a new motto for the elderly who are willing to take up the challenge of “Aging Out Loud” with courage, determination, and peer group support.

The other day, I called the Social Security Administration office to find out what the current retirement age is for employees in the United States of America. After waiting 24 minutes on the telephone line, a real person answered my question by stating that a person can retire at the age of 62 years old now. In 1997, the official retirement age was 65 years old. Some people choose to have an early retirement and others choose to remain working past retirement age in the USA.

We are excited to celebrate Older Americans Month in May 2017 when “we age out loud” at the local City of Chicago DFSS senior centers near you.

0419120556a Lake Michigan, Edgewater,    Chicago, Illinois USA

At the age of 35 years old, I was already living on my own as an adult in an apartment and worked independently for myself in 1993 as a freelance certified interpreter in English, Spanish, and French for legal court interpreting and translation. I am also a certified Illinois teacher, Grades 6-12, for middle school and high schools. In addition, I was working as Adjunct Faculty for Oakton community college in Skokie and Des Plaines teaching English As A Second Language To Adults continuing education.  Then, I worked for St. Augustine College in Chicago.

In 1991, my youngest brother and my Mother, decided to buy a Lombard home in York Township, District 5, DuPage County, Illinois, 60148-3028 USA.My Father who worked in Chicago and Skokie, was asked by my youngest brother and Mother to relocate to the western suburbs of Chicago, and move to all the way to Lombard, DuPage County, Illinois, USA.

My Father was already 62 years old in 1993.   After my youngest brother received $10,000US to buy his first home in Lombard, my Father asked me to help him buy a Lombard home at the age of 35 years old.  There is a lot of work and sacrifice in buying a Lombard home.  My Father was murdered after he completed full cash payment of the Lombard home at the First State Bank in Maple Park, Kane County, Illinois USA.

Twenty-four (24) years have passed since 1993, and have spent a lot of my working years paying for Lombard real estate property at 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Blvd. in District 5, York Township, Du Page County, Illinois USA. So, Where Is My Lombard Home Payment As A Homeowner Now In 2017?

Attention Bruce Rauner.doc By Gardenia C. Hung.pdf


On the 180th birthday anniversary for the City of Chicago founded on March 4, 1837, I remember why Chicago was the choice I made for a destination. When my parents decided to live in the United States of America, I was living in the Cuban city of Santiago de Cuba and attending elementary school in Spanish. One day, my Mother told me that both my parents decided to leave Santiago de Cuba and settle in another city of the United States of America. She asked me in which city we should live? There were many choices of cities based on the family relatives who were already in the USA. Since Catholic Charities sponsored the Freedom Flights, "Vuelos de Libertad", the Catholic Church offered help in Connecticut and Chicago to relocate Cuban families there. My Mother and Father thought that Connecticut was very, very cold and farther north in the East Coast. While Chicago was in the Midwest, a city by Lake Michigan, one of the Great Lakes–Erie, Huron, Ontario, and Superior. My parents had Cuban friends in Connecticut and Chicago, as well as in other American cities. However, the City of Chicago was unanimously our choice for a destination in the United States of America. My Grandmother had Cuban friends in Chicago and business connections to the mail-order stores like Montgomery Ward, Sears, etc. My parents had Cuban-Chinese friends in Rogers Park, on Howard Street, near Evanston, Illinois. Even now, the far north communities of Edgewater by Lake Michigan, Rogers Park, Andersonville, and Evanston still appeal to my family in general. Military friends from the Great Lakes and visitors from the USA encouraged my Mother and Father to leave Santiago de Cuba.

Chicago Catholic Charities welcomed my family with open arms, kindness, generosity, and goodwill when we arrived in July 1971. My Father, Mr. Roberto Hung Juris Doctor and my Mother, Mrs. Gardenia Fong Ramos, myself, and my youngest brother, Roberto Santiago Hung were referred for relocation to the Montfield Hotel at the corner of Sheffield and Belmont Avenue in the Lake View neighborhood, near the Illinois Masonic Medical Center on Wellington Street. Later, my Father was referred to a Baptist Church Pastor, Fabio Abreu of Dominican descent and his Canadian-American wife for relocation to the first floor of a Chicago home owned by Mrs. Marie Palmer, a Protestant Lutheran American widow, his neighbor across the alley who needed a responsible and reliable tenant with a family to help her maintain here Chicago real estate property at 2930 North Albany between Wellington and George, near Kedzie Avenue where Avondale Elementary School was located, across from the Grace Lutheran Church.

The Baptist Pastor Fabio Abreu from the Dominican Republic and his Lutheran American-German neighbor Mrs. Marie Palmer were heaven sent during our relocation from the Montfield Hotel in Lakeview to the Avondale community near Logan Square, not far from our Cuban-Chinese friends, Fernando Wong and Yolanda Fen with two children, a retarded daughter with spinal bifida, Zuling, and a male Fernandito Wong Fen who wanted to be an architect engineer later in life. Afterwards, Fernando and Yoli Wong had a daughter named Meiling who lived in the Rogers Park community, near Evanston and Skokie in Illinois.

While I was attending Avondale Grammar School, on Kedzie Avenue, aka Logandale Elementary School, I used to participate in an abridged 6th grade program, instead of the corresponding 8th grade program into which I would later transfer. Since my Mother had my Cuban grammar school transcripts, she told the Principal in Santiago de Cuba that I had already passed 6th, 7th, and 8th grade programs in Santiago de Cuba in Spanish.

The obvious problem for all of us was how to speak English, write in English, and attend school of course, obviously, my family and I had to make a transition from spoken Spanish to American English, fluently. There were Free English courses and classes at the Casa Central in Logan Square, Chicago, Illinois 60618, USA. My parents and I, used to practice speaking English in Santiago de Cuba, later on, we, as a family began to speak English at home in Chicago with the television programs of Sesame Street and the Electric Company featuring Rita Moreno, among other television personalities and talent,as well as other TV programs like Perry Mason, classic western movies with John Wayne, and the musical songs of Doris Day, Glen Miller’s American Jazz band, Lawrence Welk, which we used to watch before.

Soon, we made friends with the neighbors like Ludivina "Ludi" Villareal, whose family was Hispanic from Méjico and invited us to her birthday party for "tostadas", tacos, etc. There were also Cuban-Americans like Armando and his youngest brother who went to Avondale Elementary School also with myself and my youngest brother Robert S. Hung. My 6th grade teacher was Miss Honeywood and my English As A Second Language Teacher was Miss Pantos who later married and changed her name to Mrs. Kardos. Later, I was double transferred to 8th grade with Mr. Herbert Hebel where I graduated with High Honors from Avondale Elementary School.

In Chicago, my Father, Roberto Hung was able to find employment at the warehouse in Montgomery Ward and Sears, Roebuck and Company. Later he worked for Marshall Field’s and the Theatrical Dance Supply Company. Fernando and Yoli Wong Fen recommended my Father to work for Felt-Products, on McCormick Boulevard in Skokie, also known today as Federal Mogul, a corporation in the automotive industry manufacturing "oil gaskets" with a patented adhesive created and designed by Albert Mecklenburger, a German-American from Berlin, Germany.

My Mother also had to get a job with Goldblatt’s on Milwaukee Avenue, right in the midst of the Polish American neighborhood. Then, she found another part-time job at Tic-Toc with Mrs. Sherman. Later, my Father recommended her to work for Felt-Products with him in Skokie, also.

I started working at the Offices of Edelstein & Edelstein on Irving Park Road who needed to make collection calls on the telephone and paid a minimum wage of $4 per hour. Afterwards, I found a job at McDonald’s at the corner of Irving Park Road and Elston Avenue, not far from the Irving Park Shopping Center, the Y.M.C.A. and Madonna High School.

In order to "Make Ends Meet", both my Father and Mother went to work, and during my 3rd year as a junior at Madonna High School, age 16-years-old, Sister Rosemarie from Counseling referred me to get a job and follow the American Dream working hard to make a living. Mrs. Palmer used to say before she left for work as an Administrator and Office Manager at the Civic Opera, "I owe, I owe, so off to work I go."

Chicago is also known as the Windy City because of the cross-winds across Lake Michigan cause whirlwinds and all-changing weather due to the Lake Effect and the Great Lakes. It is still a beautiful city by the Lake Michigan, "the city with the broad shoulders" as a client and friend from Helsinki, Finland, calls the City of Chicago. Mrs. Marie Palmer used to tell me, "if you don’t like the weather in Chicago, wait a minute, it will change."

I have grown up in Chicago for the last 46 years on the Northwest side of the Windy City and attended and graduated from Northeastern Illinois University after graduating from Madonna High School on May 27, 1977 with High Honors, as a member of the National Honor Society and the French Honor Society. Later, I pursued Graduate Studies at the University of Illinois at Chicago with the Abraham Lincoln Fellowship for Rhetorical Criticism, Speech Writing, Communications, and Theatre granted by the UIC Department of Communications and Theatre managed by Dr. Anthony Graham-White. I have written my Master’s Thesis as an ethnography about "The Chinese in Cuba: Assimilation and Acculturation" presented by Dr. Thomas Kochman, Ph.D.

The City of Chicago celebrates today 180 years since its founding fathers established the settlement by the Chicago River and used the name familiarly with the "wild onions" growing by the river banks. "Happy 180th Birthday Anniversary, Chicago!"

I have rented and lived in a studio apartment on the Northwest side of Chicago near my Father, Mr. Roberto Hung Juris Doctor, on Sacramento and Belle Plaine, near Irving Park Road, in a building owned by Mrs. A.C. Nylen, a German-American realtor in Chicago and the Midwest.

My Mother, Mrs. Gardenia Fong Ramos began to work at Felt-Products Inc. and attended Loyola University Lewis Towers Campus pursuing a Master’s in Spanish Literature with Dr. Martinez, Dr. Carol Holdsworth, and Dr. Luján.

Chicago has always represented the spirit of its community people to prevail and overcome adversity in the challenges that life brings over time, place, and physical presence. The people of Chicago have a fighting spirit to survive and fight for justice, equity, and fairness. Chicago is today a cosmopolitan metropolis and a credit to its sprawling communities by Lake Michigan in the state of Illinois, USA. Happy 180th Anniversary, Chicago!

The Chicago River

Affordable Housing List.docx

Sender's profile photoSince May 2016, I have been looking for Affordable Housing In or Near The Edgewater Area By Lake Michigan, in Chicago, Illinois USA. I have already made appointments with the Alderman Harry Osterman’s Office while Cecilia Bocanegra was still in his office as an employee. Now that she is gone, there is another person handling the Housing Requests during February 2017.

I have already gone through Apartment Finders and a personal realtor who accompanied during my Apartment Search.

Another Chicago Realtor has been contacted to provide condominium leasing and purchase options in the Lincoln Park area, pending my Lombard real estate cash payment, compensation, restitution, and Illinois Homeowners’ Credit.

So, I am still looking for Affordable Housing in the Edgewater neighborhood.

Where is my Lombard Homeowner Cash Payment For Criminal Roofing Damages and Losses, Demolition, and Illinois Victims of Crime Abuse at 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard in District 5, York Township, Du Page County, Illinois 60148-3028 USA?

U.S. President Donald J. Trump’s Inaugural Address On Friday, January 20, 2017 At The White House In Washington D.C.

Video and transcript: Donald Trump’s full inauguration speech

President Donald J.Trump’s Inauguration Speech

11:29 am, January 20, 2017, (58°Few Clouds)

Full text of the inauguration speech as delivered by Donald J. Trump:

Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans, and people of the world: thank you.

We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and to restore its promise for all of our people.

Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for years to come.

We will face challenges. We will confront hardships. But we will get the job done.

Every four years, we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power, and we are grateful to President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition. They have been magnificent.

Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one Administration to another, or from one party to another – but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People.

For too long, a small group in our nation’s Capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost.

Washington flourished – but the people did not share in its wealth.

Politicians prospered – but the jobs left, and the factories closed.

The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.

Their victories have not been your victories; their triumphs have not been your triumphs; and while they celebrated in our nation’s Capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.

That all changes – starting right here, and right now, because this moment is your moment: it belongs to you.

It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America.

This is your day. This is your celebration.

And this, the United States of America, is your country.

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.

January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.

The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.

Everyone is listening to you now.

You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement the likes of which the world has never seen before.

At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction: that a nation exists to serve its citizens.

Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families, and good jobs for themselves.

These are the just and reasonable demands of a righteous public.

But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists: Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted-out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation; an education system, flush with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of knowledge; and the crime and gangs and drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential.

This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.

We are one nation – and their pain is our pain. Their dreams are our dreams; and their success will be our success. We share one heart, one home, and one glorious destiny.

The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.

For many decades, we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry;

Subsidized the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military;

We’ve defended other nation’s borders while refusing to defend our own;

And spent trillions of dollars overseas while America’s infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay.

We’ve made other countries rich while the wealth, strength, and confidence of our country has disappeared over the horizon.

One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores, with not even a thought about the millions upon millions of American workers left behind.

The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed across the entire world.

But that is the past. And now we are looking only to the future.

We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital, and in every hall of power.

From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land.

From this moment on, it’s going to be America First.

Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs, will be made to benefit American workers and American families.

We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies, and destroying our jobs. Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength.

I will fight for you with every breath in my body – and I will never, ever let you down.

America will start winning again, winning like never before.

We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders. We will bring back our wealth. And we will bring back our dreams.

We will build new roads, and highways, and bridges, and airports, and tunnels, and railways all across our wonderful nation.

We will get our people off of welfare and back to work – rebuilding our country with American hands and American labor.

We will follow two simple rules: Buy American and Hire American.

We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world – but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first.

We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example for everyone to follow.

We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones – and unite the civilized world against Radical Islamic Terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth.

At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other.

When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.

The Bible tells us, “how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity.”

We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity.

When America is united, America is totally unstoppable.

There should be no fear – we are protected, and we will always be protected.

We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement and, most importantly, we are protected by God.

Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger.

In America, we understand that a nation is only living as long as it is striving.

We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action – constantly complaining but never doing anything about it.

The time for empty talk is over.

Now arrives the hour of action.

Do not let anyone tell you it cannot be done. No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of America.

We will not fail. Our country will thrive and prosper again.

We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the Earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow.

A new national pride will stir our souls, lift our sights, and heal our divisions.

It is time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget: that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great American Flag.

And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the windswept plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, they fill their heart with the same dreams, and they are infused with the breath of life by the same almighty Creator.

So to all Americans, in every city near and far, small and large, from mountain to mountain, and from ocean to ocean, hear these words:

You will never be ignored again.

Your voice, your hopes, and your dreams, will define our American destiny. And your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way.

Together, We Will Make America Strong Again.

We Will Make America Wealthy Again.

We Will Make America Proud Again.

We Will Make America Safe Again.

And, Yes, Together, We Will Make America Great Again. Thank you, God Bless You, And God Bless America.

Brian Nicholas Campbell Took A Digital Selfie From His New Apple Mobile Telephone Taken On Monday, June 6, 2016, Upon Request From Gardenia Hung On Facebook Messenger, After His Arrival At The Hotel In Lagos, Nigeria.

On Sunday, June 5, 2016, Brian Nicholas Campbell attended his Sunday Church Prayer Service and Bible Study before he left for his last mission to West Africa which relocated him to the city of Lagos in Nigeria.

Brian Nicholas Campbell traveled from the Kennedy International Airport in New York, NY to Lagos, Nigeria.

On Monday, June 6, 2016, the first day when Brian Nicholas Campbell was in Lagos, Nigeria, West Africa, on a different time schedule and texted me on Facebook Messenger to tell me that he had arrived safely and was communicating from the hotel room in town.

Brian Nicholas Campbell wrote,

Hello dear Gardenia, i’m so glad to write you with good mood that i had a safe flight trip to West Africa. Its approximately 12 hours journey to our destination as my business plan has been changed by the Animal research team management and we could not be able to have a stop over in Kenya anymore. I have to organize the first conference seminar in Nigeria and the last meeting will be hold in Kenya. I just want you to know that you’ve been in my heart and i couldn’t for once stop thinking about you. I tried to reply your messenger but couldn’t go through due to server error. God bless you my queen. I will be looking forward to see your reply.

Gardenia are you wondering if i’m wasting all my time? you know i’m dedicating every thought to you, i’ll wait all my life hoping one day you’ll see that but i’m not complaining because in the end, i keep believing that it would be you and me. In my heart there will always be a place for you, and it will never change. I’ll keep you with me forever, wherever i am there you are.

At that time, I asked Brian to take a digital photo of himself on his new Apple mobile phone which he had received as a birthday present on June 2, 2016. I wanted a current photo of Brian Nicholas upon arrival to his hotel in Lagos, Nigeria, West Africa. He told me he had a Conference on Day 1 via email and I responded to his message. Brian was in a good mood, even though he was tired from jet lag.

Brian took a selfie on his new Apple mobile telephone and posted this picture on the Facebook Messenger.

Five (5) months ago, I was updating my Facebook Friends with Carol Ronen in the 48th Democratic Ward for the Edgewater, Rogers Park, and Uptown district. I added some of Carol Ronen’s Facebook Friends to mine…including Brian Nicholas Campbell, who responded by adding my name to his Friends’ Page–and my life has never been the same since March 28, 2016, Carol Ronen’s birthday anniversary. On Wednesday, I reminded Brian Nicholas Campbell to wish Carol Ronen a Happy Birthday! So, Brian and I chatted on Facebook Messenger for the first time that afternoon. I wished Brian “A Wonderful Spring Time In 2016!”

Brian wanted to continue chatting and he tagged my Facebook Messenger with his name.

The next day, on Thursday morning, I found Brian’s “Good Morning, Gardenia” on my Facebook Messenger. His Good Morning Greeting merited my response and I responded, “Have A Good Morning, Brian Nicholas Campbell!”

“Thanks for your message and I really wish you a wonderful day too and may the good Lord Bless You. Amen'” chatted Brian Nicholas Campbell at 8:35AM.

On March 29, 2016, I chatted with Brian in the morning, before I started packing for my round trip to Santiago de Cuba and a Cuban-Chinese Family Reunion with my youngest brother Robert S. Hung.

I did not chat on Facebook Messenger with Brian Nicholas Campbell until I returned from Santiago de Cuba.

Facebook Friend Brian Nicholas Campbell has been a New York resident homeowner and taxpayer who has lived in Rochelle Park, a historic residential district located in New Rochelle, Westchester, New York. New Rochelle is listed in the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in New York. Rochelle Park was founded in 1885.

According to Samuel Swift, in “Community Life at Rochelle Park“, House & Garden (May 1904), “Rochelle Park epitomizes the suburban development design principles that Frederick Law Olmsted advocated with the creation of Central Park in New York City: a landscape that provides urban dwellers with the restorative benefits of a picturesque natural environment. Incorporating open space, recreational areas, naturalistic settings, and broad boulevards for public interaction”.

When Brian Nicholas Campbell began to Chat with me on Messenger in Facebook, he was living at home in Rochelle Park, New York. He wanted to communicate by chatting via the Messenger with me, in order to get to know each other better as Facebook friends.

Brian worked near his New York home for the Animal Health Research Institute (AHRI), located at Nadi El- Said Street, Dokki, Cairo, Egypt, to promote the care, maintenance, and preservation of animals.

The Animal Health Research Institute (AHRI) was established in 1904 under the name of pathology laboratory inside the building of the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cairo University; then it becomes the General Department of labs and veterinary researches in its building at Nadi El-said street Dokki Giza; then in 1983 by the Republic Decision No. 19, the Agriculture Research Centre was established containing The Animal Health Research Institute.

The objectives of the Animal Health Research Institute (AHRI) include the following:

  1. Protection of animal, poultry and fish against serious endemic and exotic diseases introduced recently via importation of living animals, food of animal origin or animal by-products, through rapid accurate diagnosis.
  2. Monitoring and diagnosis of causative agents of zoonotic diseases transmitted to human via food of animal origin.

In addition, Brian Nicholas Campbell studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Utah. During our Chat session on Messenger, Brian told me that he specializes in Thermodynamics for heating and cooling systems, while studying Mechanical Engineering.

Thermodynamics is the branch of science concerned with heat and temperature and their relation to energy and work. It states that the behavior of these quantities is governed by the four laws of thermodynamics, irrespective of the composition or specific properties of the material or system in question. The laws of thermodynamics are explained in terms of microscopic constituents by statistical mechanics. Thermodynamics applies to a wide variety of topics in science and engineering, especially physical chemistry, chemical engineering and mechanical engineering.

When Brian and I began to Chat on Messenger during May 2016, we were able to write about ourselves, as if we were talking to each other virtually as Facebook friends. That is how this Facebook relationship started between Brian Nicholas Campbell and myself.

Brian Nicholas Campbell at age 6 years old.

Facebook Friend Brian Nicholas Campbell wants us to get to know each other better during our relationship, so we have been sharing childhood photos and memories from the past in our virtual relationship through Facebook Messenger online chat sessions.

Brian shared his childhood photo at 6 years old.  He told me that he was born on June 2, 1972 in the city of Valencia, state of Carabobo, in the municipality of Girardot, Venezuela.  After our Mesenger Chat I became more interested in learning about the city of Valencia, Venezuela, as well as the city of Maracay, known as the Garden City in the state of Aragua, where Brian’s sister lives with her husband, children, family and friends in Venezuela.  While I was reading about Venezuela, I found this video about Valencia, Venezuela:

Facebook Friend Brian Nicholas Campbell was born in Valencia, Venezuela on June 2, 1972, the first son of Mr. Campbell and Sarah Campbell. Brian was born in the state of Carabobo, Municipality of Girardot in the country of Venezuela.

Then, I wished Brian, “A Wonderful Spring Time In 2016!”

Brian wanted to continue chatting and he tagged my Facebook Messenger with his name linked by icon showing a white car and himself standing by the motor vehicle. Somehow the Messenger connection was interrupted when he asked me, “Are you here to chat?”, wrote Brian Nicholas Campbell.

The following day, Thursday morning, I found Brian’s “Good Morning, Gardenia” on my Facebook Messenger. His Good Morning Greeting merited my response and I replied, “Have A Good Morning, Brian Nicholas Campbell!”

“Thanks for your message and I really wish you a wonderful day too and may the good Lord Bless You. Amen” chatted Brian Nicholas Campbell at 8:35AM

On my first day arrival to Santiago de Cuba, on Friday, April 1st, 2016, my Aunt Xiomara Fong Ramos took me for a walk around her neighborhood along Calle 3 and Calle 2, near La Trocha and Carretera del Morro. We ended up walking to her physician’s home apartment above the local Medical Clinic No.1 managed by Dr. Luis Peinado, M.D. My Aunt Xiomara introduced me to her physician friend and his wife who was washing the laundry and hanging clothes to dry on the terrace.

Afterwards, we went to have Lunch at her home, where her husband, Uncle Pedro Zayas Guerrero made a typical Cuban welcome meal with the traditional Cuban Roast Pork, Lechón Asado, Rice and Black Beans, served with a Tomatoes, Cucumbers and Onions Salad. During three (3) consecutive days, we had the same type of Cuban food fare which included black beans stew. In addition, there were cartons of lemonade and cranberry juice, fresh fruit, preserves, etc. The Cuban black beans stew caused me to have an indigestion by Sunday evening, on the third day. The black beans are hard and tough to digest along with the abundant luncheon and the following substantial dinner for four (4) consecutive days in Santiago de Cuba, prepared by my Uncle Pedro for the our welcoming meals at their home. Around midnight on Sunday, my stomach could not hold nor digest all the Cuban meals at once, so I began to throw up in the bathroom sink everything I had consumed and could not digest properly with the black beans. Then, I felt the diarrhea coming and off to the toilet I went afterwards, after midnight and during the early morning hours. I was in the twilight zone in Santiago de Cuba. On the fourth day, Uncle Pedro and Aunt Xiomara began to complain that they had too much to do at home with so many people coming over to visit them. So, Uncle Pedro hired a Cuban black cook named Melania to cook for our family during our 29-day stay in Santiago de Cuba. I told Melania that the black beans stew did not agree with my stomach overnight and after midnight, which caused vomit, diarrhea, and complete discomfort during the twilight early morning hours in Santiago de Cuba. Melania changed the Cuban menu completely and removed the black beans stew.

Twelve (12) days later, my Aunt Xiomara received a medical house call at home from Public Health Dr. Dairelis Sotolongo Romero, M.D. who arrived with the registered nurse to take my temperature at 36.3 Centigrade and blood pressure at 110/70 for the day.

In Santiago de Cuba, there is a mandatory 21 days medical check-up daily for travellers, visitors, tourists, and foreigners to take their temperature and blood pressure, while spot checking their overall health and well-being.

For the following consecutive days, we walked to the Medical Clinic Consultorio No.1, Policlínico 28 de septiembre, on Calle 2, to visit Dr. Dairelis Sotolongo Romero, M.D. to take our temperatures and blood pressure on a daily basis, according to the Public Health Department Standards in Santiago de Cuba. My regular body temperature is 36.5 Centigrades and my blood pressure is 120/70.

On the April 21, 2016, Dr. Dairelis Sotolongo Romero, M.D. brought another medical assistant, Dr. Fermín Alfonso Hibonet who took my temperature with the thermometer reading 36.5 Centigrades and my blood pressure reading at 130/80. Then Dr. Fermín dropped the thermometer on the floor by accident. This momentary slip of the thermometer to the ground broke the glass thermometer into pieces, scattering the quick silver oxide all over the floor, under the rocking chairs, the table, everywhere. That was the only thermometre they had brought with them on the last day of the medical check up for me as a traveller, visiting tourist, foreigner for our Cuban family reunion during April 2016.

Dr. Dairelis Sotolongo Romero, M.D. told me that I only had to have written medical check-ups for 21 days mandatory requirement for travellers, visitors, tourists, and foreigners in Santiago de Cuba upon request by Public Health. I signed the medical reports beginning on April 12 through April 21, 2016 in Santiago de Cuba for the Medical Clinic Consultorio No.1 of the Policlínico 28 de septiembre on Calle 2 and La Trocha.

For All Travellers, Tourists, and Foreigners in Cuba, There Is A Daily Medical Check-Up For 21 Days Mandatory Requirement By Public Health In Santiago de Cuba.

Roberto Hung’s Labor Day Celebration On September 2, 1993 Paid Debra Sekrecki $2,800 In Lombard Real Estate Property Taxes For Du Page County, Illinois USA

Source: Short Story: Roberto Hung’s Labor Day Celebration On September 2, 1993 Paid Debra Sekrecki $2,800 In Lombard Real Estate Property Taxes For Du Page County by Gardenia c. Hung on ScribeSlice

The Village of Lombard set up Roberto Hung’s Labor Day Celebration on September 2, 1993 by making him pay Debra Sekrecki’s $2,800 in Lombard real estate property taxes in 1993 for Du Page County Due On September 2nd for the Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow built in 1927 at the corner of 502 South Westmore Avenue and Washington Boulevard in District 5, near Saint Pius X Catholic Church Parish, in York Township, Du Page County, Illinois USA.

Twenty-two years ago, Mr. Roberto Hung was a Chicago, Illinois resident and U.S. citizen who lived and rented from Mrs. A.C. Nylen on the Northwest side of Chicago, in the Avondale neighborhood.  The Nylens owned Chicago Real Estate property in Illinois and also invested in Wisconsin Real Estate, as well as other U.S. holdings.

After his birthday on June 7, 1993, when Mr. Roberto Hung became 62 years old, his youngest son and wife encouraged him to buy Lombard real estate property in Lilac Town with his oldest daughter and son-in-law who would help him pay for the historic Lombard brick bungalow at 502 South Westmore Avenue and Washington Boulevard one block north from St. Pius X Church and School Parish and three blocks from the Illinois Secretary of State Motor Vehicles Facility at Eastgate Shopping Center.  The Westmore Elementary School is only one block north on School Street.  The Deicke Home for the Retarded is three blocks away from the same location.

On September 2, 1993, Twenty-two (22) years ago, my Father, Mr. Roberto Hung, decided to purchase a Lombard home at the corner of 502 South Westmore Avenue and Washington Boulevard, in York Township, District 5, owned by Debra Sekrecki with her two children, a boy named Steven Sekrecki and a daughter, as well as  a female tenant called Stella who lived on the second floor, in-law apartment, her boyfriend, and her father Adam Sekrecki.  Debra Sekrecki owed Lombard real estate taxes in Du Page County, Mr. Roberto Hung offered to pay the remaining Lombard real estate property taxes for Debra Sekrecki and her father Adam Sekrecki.  At the age of 62 years of age, my Father, Mr. Roberto Hung was persuaded by his youngest son Roberto S. Hung and his ex-wife Mrs. Gardenia Fong Ramos, to purchase a Lombard home in September 1993.

Since Debra Sekrecki and her father Adam Sekrecki owed $2,800 in Lombard real estate property taxes in 1993, Mr. Roberto Hung had to pay Du Page County for the Lombard Brick Bungalow real estate taxes in York Township on September 2, 1993.  In addition, Mr. Roberto Hung also paid in cash $89,000, half of the down payment as deposit for the Lombard real estate property at 502 South Westmore Avenue and Washington Boulevard in District 5, York Township, Du Page County, Illinois 60148-3028 USA.  On September 2, 1993, Mr. Roberto Hung, his eldest daughter, and son-in-law began payment of Lombard real estate property mortgage to own the historic brick bungalow, while the three of them were working full-time, part-time, and on weekends.

Mr. Roberto Hung, his eldest daughter, and son-in-law started looking for Lombard real estate property to purchase during the summer in Du Page County, Illinois USA.  Finally, Mr. Roberto Hung found a Lombard Brick Bungalow at 502 South Westmore Avenue and Washington Boulevard with the help of Baird & Warner Realtor Paulette Weininger and Century 21 Realtor Dino Lekousis from the Lombard Pines Shopping Center on Main Street, across from the J.W. Reedy Realty office.  The Lombard historic brick bungalow was built in 1927 and was owned by Debra Sekrecki and her father Adam Sekrecki, who lived there with two children, and a senior citizen named Stella who resided on the second floor in-law apartment.  Mr. Roberto Hung, his eldest daughter, and son-in-law purchased the Lombard historic brick bungalow and have lived in the Village of Lombard, Lilac Town, as Illinois resident homeowner in District 5, York Township, Du Page County, Illinois USA.

Three (3) years later on September 2, 1996, Mr. Roberto Hung and his eldest daughter completed full cash payment of the same Lombard real estate property at 502 S. Westmore Avenue at the Maple Park State Bank in Kane County, Illinois USA.  The eldest daughter was a witness to the full cash payment for the Lombard real estate property in Du Page County, Illinois USA.

At the turn-of-the-century, the Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow at 502 S. Westmore Avenue and Washington Blvd. was owned by the Ahrens Family as a subdivision of part of the block “A” in Robertson’s Westmore, according to the Plat recorded June 1st, 1922 by the Du Page County Recorder of Deeds Office.  Both Mary Ahrens and Emil Ahrens lived at this Lombard Historic Brick home during 1929 and 1930, according to property records.

During 1922, when the Ahrens recorded this property deed: a building ordinance was passed in the Village of Lombard , the superintendent of construction was appointed, and the Lombard village board studied zoning ordinance.  There were 2,200 acres in Du Page County, subdivided into residential lots—old farms were being subdivided.  According to the late Mrs. Steben, my elderly next-door neighbor, “the area was old farm land with horse stables, surrounded by corn fields”.

More petitions for new subdivisions were presented in 1922.  At the time, the Lombard trustees forecasted the expansion and uncontrolled growth.  There were dirt roads and muddy paths—“some sections were inundated by spring rains”.   According to Lillian Budd, Lombard historian, The Lombard News summarized, “…clamoring for water in pipes, while at the same time battling water not in pipes.”[5]  Some property owners laid water mains at their own expense, then asked permission to connect with the village water system.  The Village of Lombard planned street paving afterwards in 1922.

During March 19, 1927, the Village of Lombard issued new building permits.  By June 1927, eight (8) more building permits were issued.  At the time, property values in Lombard increased—“one vacant lot more than tripled in value, within one year”.[6]

     Two centuries later, on September 2nd, 1993, Mr. Roberto Hung, Sr. with his daughter and son-in-law purchased the Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow from Debra Y. Sekrecki, with an initial down payment of $2,000, as earnest money paid by personal check, added to the total cash payment of $88,000 at a fixed interest rate not to exceed 8.00% per year, amortized over a period of fifteen (15) years.  At the time, Debra Y. Sekrecki had two (2) children, a boy and a girl, lived with Stella, the tenant upstairs, and father Adam Sekrecki.

     Three months before, on July 11, 1993, Mr. Roberto Hung signed a Standard Residential Sales Contract from the Du Page Association of Realtors in agreement to purchase the Lombard real estate property at 502 S. Westmore Avenue in Lombard, Illinois  60148-3028 , owned by seller Debra Y. Sekrecki.  The original closing date was scheduled on September 11, 1993.  However, Roberto Hung was called by telephone to appear sooner on September 2nd, 1993, at 3:30 p.m., at the law office of Alan Dakoff, Telephone:  708-966-0488, located at 9291 North Maryland, in Niles, Illinois  60714 , U.S.A.

     Century 21, Action Real Estate provided a Buyer Service Pledge presented by Steve Block, Telephone:  630-627-5500, and Dino, the real estate agent with Roberto Hung, who signed in agreement.  Afterwards, Roberto Hung received a copy of Rider 412, Buyer’s Inspection which he signed as buyer with Debra Sekrecki, as seller.   

     In 1993, Century 21, Action Real Estate described in a listing the Highlights of the Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow at the corner of Westmore Avenue and Washington Blvd., owned by Debra Y. Sekrecki with tenant Stella.  At the time, the Du Page County Real Estate Taxes were only $2,744 for the brick house.  After Roberto Hung purchased the same Lombard Brick House, the Lombard property taxes doubled for more than $4,000, without providing the senior citizens Homestead Exemption.

     This Lombard Brick Home is located  near Westmore Elementary School and St. Pius X Church School, Jackson Middle School , and Willowbrook High School . 

     George Hornbeck’s Parcel No. 06-09-315038 is a subdivision, spacious 4-bedroom brick home with a second floor in-law or potential income arrangement.  There are nine (9) room available with hardwood floors.  Full finished basement.  Front and rear enclosed porches for added living space.  Fully fenced yard with a gas grill.   There is a 2-car garage.  Public transportation is available.  This Lombard home is close to school and shopping, near the Eastgate Center and State of Illinois facilities for the Secretary of State Vehicle Licenses Center and the Illinois Employment and Training Center (I.E.T.C.).

     Action Real Estate for Century 21 was serving Du Page and Cook counties at the Lombard Pines Shopping Center, 1125-J South Main Street, Lombard, Illinois  60148, in care of realtor Dino.

     On September 2nd, 1996, Mr. Roberto Hung completed full cash payment of the Lombard Brick Home at Maple Park State Bank, witnessed by his daughter, Gardenia C. Hung, and the bank manager.  Mr. Roberto Hung and his eldest daughter, married to Nathan S. Wittler, improved this Lombard Brick house by adding oak cabinets, an exterior halogen flood night light, (2) automatic garage door openers, changed all door locks, added gardening landscaping, apple trees orchard, and perennial flowers, and exotic plant species.

Mr. Roberto Hung Juris Doctor, His, Wife, Daughter and Son

The Freedom Flights For Cuban Political Refugees Were Sponsored By Catholic Charities USA

By Gardenia C. Hung

On July 19, 1971, Mr. Roberto Hung Juris Doctor, his wife Gardenia Fong Ramos, his daughter and son, arrived at Miami International Airport on Cubana Airlines where his eldest brother Miguel Hung, his wife Silvia Simons and family were expecting this Cuban family arriving with the Freedom Flights from La Habana, Cuba. Miguel Hung, his wife Silvia, and his four children Olivia, Miguel, Santiago, and Raimundo Hung-Simons were all Miami residents living in Florida. After Roberto Hung and his family visited his Florida relatives, he decided to be relocated by Catholic Charities to the City of Chicago by Lake Michigan in the State of Illinois, by the Great Lakes area in the Midwest of the United States of America.

The third week in July 1971, on July 22, 1971, Mr. Roberto Hung Juris Doctor, his wife, his daughter and son arrived at O’Hare Airport in Chicago from Miami, Florida sponsored by Catholic Charities USA which relocated this Cuban family to The Montfield Hotel for lodging upon referral by Catholic Charities of Chicago. Once inthe Windy City, they were welcomed as Cuban political refugees from the Freedom Flights designed to bring Cuban exiles to the United States of America. The Montfield Hotel was the first place of residence in July 1971 for Mr. Roberto Hung, his wife, his daughter and son in the Lakeview neighborhood of the City of Chicago, in the State of Illinois USA.

The Freedom Flights represent the largest and longest resettlement program of political refugees ever sponsored by the U.S. government, offering an escape from Fidel Castro’s Cuba to 265,000 people. This is an effort for people who were on the Freedom Flights to find their names, as well as their families, complete their records, and reconnect over the memory. This is the only public record of the Freedom Flights at this time.

Roberto Hung’s Cousin “Hortensia” Niebocki who was married to Gary Niebocki from New Jersey, had filed U.S. Immigration forms as a relative to bring his family to the United States America. The name “Hortensia” in Spanish is the eponym for the flower Hydrangea in English. Hortensia was the eldest daughter of Antonia Mustelier Baró, who was a registered nurse married to Dr. Gary Niebocki, M.D. Hortensia’s mother was the eldest sister of Gertrudis Salustiana Mustelier Baró, Roberto Hung’s mother. Dr. Gary Niebocki, M.D. was a medical officer in the U.S. Navy who married Hortensia as a registered nurse practitioner while she worked at the Guantánamo Naval Base near Santiago de Cuba in the Caribbean country of Cuba.

Figure 1 The Flower Hydrangea is translated in Spanish as Hortensia.

The Montfield Hotel was included as a National Historic Landmark in the building located at the corner of Belmont and Sheffield Avenues for the Lakeview neighborhood, Chicago, Illinois USA.

This former multi-use commercial block was constructed by the Belmont-Sheffield Trust and Savings Bank, founded in 1927 by a group of prominent Swedish businessmen to serve the needs of Lakeview’s numerous Swedish residents. An outstanding feature is the monumental arched entrance on Belmont Avenue, designed in the Classical Revival-style, while simpler Art Deco-style ornamentation is visible at the upper floors. Walls are clad with limestone on the first four stories. Buff colored brick and light-gray ornamental terra-cotta are used on the remaining two stories. In addition to the bank, the building was originally designed to house multiple uses, including rental offices, a hotel, and street-level storefronts. The Belmont-Sheffield Trust and Savings Bank thrived from 1929 to 1932, but was forced to close on July 6, 1933, during the Depression.

Figure 2 Belmont-Sheffield Trust and Savings Bank (Former) located at 1001 West Belmont Avenue and Sheffield, in the Lakeview neighborhood in Chicago, Illinois USA

Address: 1001 W. Belmont AvenueYear Built: 1929

Architect: John A. Nyden

Date Designated a Chicago Landmark: July 9, 2009

The National Register of Historic Places has recorded and registered the Belmont-Sheffield Bank Building as a national landmark in the City of Chicago, Illinois USA.

The Belmont-Sheffield Bank Building, which once contained a bank, a residential hotel, offices and stores, stands six stories at the southwest corner of the Belmont and Sheffield Avenues. The freestanding building is “U” shaped in the upper stories around a two-story central atrium with a light court of approximately 1500 square feet in the center rear beginning above the second floor of the building—which allowed the light to reach the bank lobby—the glass atrium has since been roofed over.

The fourth floor, where the hotel section of the building begins, has terracotta medallions of Medusa on the piers separating the five window bays on Sheffield and end bays on Belmont and is topped by geometric moldings and a second slightly deeper cornice. The top two floors have simply-ornamented limestone spandrels: A parapet of brick is capped by a projecting acanthus ornament.

The Sheffield House Hotel is a historic hotel in the heart of Wrigleyville, built in the 1920s. The Cubs baseball team used the Sheffield House Hotel for their players in the 1930s.

Stylistically, this building combines Classical influences typically found in both downtown and neighborhood banking institutions, with elements of the Art Deco style popular in the late twenties.

The Bank’s monumental arched entry located on Belmont is its most conspicuous Classical feature. Reminiscent of the Renaissance work of Alberti (especially the Church of St. Andrea at Mantua). The three-story arch springs from strong Ionic columns. Once inside this impressive archway, the scale changes to one more human. A recessed post and lintel doorway painted blue green is embellished with more intricate Classical details deluding rosettes, lintils, quivers and acanthus patterns. Hanging from the center of the shallow vaulted entrance is a wrought iron bronze lantern. The hotel-office entrance on Sheffield is also ornamented with Classical detailing.

This building combines the Art Deco style with Classicism, thus making it more the legacy of its own time conventions.

The office spaces can be accessed from the bank vestibule, but the main office and hotel entrance is on Sheffield, the elevator lobby to the upper staircase has a strapwork ceiling with marble flooring in the same pattern as the banking room.

The entire building combines Classicism and Art Deco, monumentality and intimate scale in a manner that suits the bank’s need to impress with the more personal needs of the customer.

The Belmont-Sheffield Trust and Savings Bank is primarily significant as the only remaining bank building built in Lakeview before the Depression which retains its architectural integrity; all others have been demolished or extensively altered. Its stylistic characteristics, reflecting a combination of Neo-Classicism typical of bank design and Art Deco refinements typical of the period, have not been lost. In addition, this building is important as an early multi-use structure. The prominently-located six story corner building was unusual if not unique under a single-roof. It was always a hotel. Reference to The Montfield Hotel is found in the 1930 telephone directory. The Bank which occupied the bulding between November 1, 1929 and July 6. 1933 is a typical Chicago community bank, but it is historically important to Lakeview as the Swedish institution in a neighborhood that was strongly Swedish. The bank’s financial support, its Board of Directors and its architects were all Swedish…

The Montfield Hotel which used to be located at 3146 North Sheffield on floors four through six struggled with vacancy until 1984, when a developer received a federal loan to convert the Montfield Hotel into 54 apartments, maintaining stores on the ground floor. The building was sold again to another developer and the upper floors were converted into loft condos in 2005, which are now listed at the address 3150 North Sheffield. In 2008, the Commission on Chicago Landmarks designated this building as a landmark along with 15 other neighborhood bank buildings.

1983:  Journal Français d’Amérique from San Francisco, California USA

Thirty-one (31) years ago, I began to write letters in French and English to a pen pal writer who wanted to correspond while he was stationed aboard the USS Platte, an oil-refueling ship based in Norfolk, Virginia.  Nathan Scott Wittler had placed an Advertising Notice for a Pen Pal in the Journal Français d’Amérique, for a correspondent who would write to him regularly in French and English while he was commissioned aboard the USS Platte travelling around the world for the U.S. Navy military.  In March 1983, I began to write to Nathan S. Wittler as a Pen Pal Correspondent in French and English who subscribed to the Journal Français d’Amérique published from San Francisco, California in the United States of America.

During Winter 1983, I was still subscribing weekly to the Journal Français d’Amérique from San Francisco, California, while I worked teaching French and Spanish at Holy Cross School, a Christian Brothers Catholic School For Boys in River Grove, now known as Guerin College Prep, a Catholic Institution in Illinois, USA.  I had already moved out to have my own studio apartment on the second floor at 4109 North Sacramento, where my Father, Mr. Roberto Hung J.D., lived upstairs as a tenant in the building complex owned by Mrs. A.C. Nylen, at the corner of Belle Plaine Avenue and North Sacramento, near Irving Park Road, on the northwest side of Chicago in Illinois.  My Grandmother Gertrudis, a senior retired citizen who moved to Miami, Calle Ocho in the Little Havana neighborhood, suggested that I keep her apartment near my Father, who lived upstairs, on the third floor, after I completed five (5) years of college education at Northeastern Illinois University.  I started my first teaching job at Holy Cross High School for Boys because Elaine, a Dominican Spanish teacher from Santo Domingo, was expecting her first baby and requested Maternity leave during her pregnancy.  So, I was substituting for Elaine as a full-time French and Spanish high school teacher at Holy Cross High School for Boys in River Grove, Illinois USA.

In December 1982, I had just graduated with High Honors from Northeastern Illinois University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Secondary Education to teach French, Spanish, English, Communications, and Linguistics, with a minor in Performing Arts which included Dance, Music, Voice, and Classical Guitar.  I had been involved in the French Honor Society with Professor Dorette Klein, and the Spanish Honor Society with Dr. Angelina Pedroso, Ph.D. in the Foreign Languages Department with Dr. Bruno Galassi, Ph.D., Head of the Department where Flora Llacuna worked as a secretary during the 1980s.

Since reading in French was important to keep up with current events, cultural news, and world issues, I subscribed regularly to the Journal Français d’Amérique and other periodicals and newspapers.

In the Summer of 1982, I had been studying Canadian French at Laval University in the Ville de Québec, not far from Montréal in the province of Québec, Canada during June, July, and mid-August 1982.  Afterwards, I upgraded my round-trip return ticket on Air Canada, to travel to Calgary in Alberta, Canada upon invitation from a college schoolmate.

During the Fall of 1982, I began my Student Teaching at Lincoln Park High School and Grammar School with Mrs. Maureen Dolan and Mrs. Maureen Breen in French, and Dr. Manuel Verdugo, Ph.D. in Spanish.

Fortunately, I completed all my College Graduation requirements with High Honors at Northeastern Illinois University in December 1982.  Then I applied for a full-time job to teach French and Spanish at Holy Cross High School for Boys, managed by the Christian Brothers in River Grove, Illinois USA.

While I was reading the Journal Français d’Amérique, one day in the Spring of 1983, I found an Advertising Notice for a Pen Pal French Writer from Nathan Scott Wittler who was a military recruit, commissioned Postal Clerk aboard the USS Platte based in Norfolk, Virginia.  Nathan S. Wittler wanted to correspond in French and English while he was traveling aboard the USS Platte.  So, I replied with a letter in English and French to correspond in both languages in response to the Journal Français d’Amérique advertising notice.  I started pen pal letters to Nathan S. Wittler and mailing once a month, while he was aboard the USS Platte.  Then, Nathan S. Wittler asked to exchange telephone numbers to call once in a while, when he was on leave an off-duty from the USS Platte in Norfolk, Virginia.  During his vacation, Nathan requested to visit Chicago where he had travelled before with his parents, Reverend Melvin A. Wittler and Mrs. Nancy Wittler Patriquin, when the family was on furlough, as Christian missionaries for the World Council of Churches in Turkey and the Middle East.

In my letters to Nathan Scott Wittler, I had written about my work as a Multi-lingual Medical Travel Insurance Customer Service Representative for the Groupe Européen S.A. GESA Assistance based in Brussels, Belgium, Paris, France, London, England, Canada, Chicago, USA, North America, the Caribbean, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Mexico, Asia, Africa, and Australia.

After Nathan S. Wittler was discharged from his military service and duties aboard the USS Platte based in Norfolk, Virginia in the Summer of 1986 during the U.S. Bicentennial Anniversary in New York, he invited me to visit his parents Reverend Melvin A. Wittler and Mrs. Nancy Wittler Patriquin who were Christian missionaries living in Istanbul, Turkey.

Upon returning from the Wittlers Family Reunion, Nathan S. Wittler returned to Chicago with me to settle down in the Midwest.  I helped Nathan S. Wittler to resume his civilian life in Chicago, Illinois where I recommended him for full-time work at GESA Assistance Premier Travel Insurance Company which was located at 150 S. Wacker Drive across from the Sears Tower.

 

 

 

 

 

 


JULY 2014

On the first day of July 2014, all Canadians celebrate Canada Day.

 


Canada Day (French: Fête du Canada) is the national day of Canada, a federal statutory holiday celebrating the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the British North America Act, 1867 (today called the Constitution Act, 1867), which united three colonies into a single country called Canada within the British Empire.[1][2][3] Originally called Dominion Day (French: Le Jour de la Confédération), the holiday was renamed in 1982, the year the Canada Act was passed. Canada Day observances take place throughout Canada as well as among Canadians internationally.

Three (3) days later, on the Fourth of July, the United States of America has a national holiday for Independence Day since July 4, 1776.

Cantigny Park in Wheaton is celebrating Independence Day with kids who enjoy the inflatables and painting a 20-foot mural and can sign the Declaration of Independence. On this occasion, the Revolutionary War re-enactors will fire a real cannon and supervise 18th century games. These festivities include a magic show and performance by The U.S. Navy Band of the Great Lakes Naval Base. The Cantigny Museum is open to the public from Noon to 4 p.m. For additional information, visit www.cantigny.org

The French also celebrate Independence Day known as Bastille Day or in French la Fête de la Bastille on Monday, July 14th. French-speakers around the world have a national holiday on this occasion. The Groupe Professionel Francophone is hosting Bastille Day at the Daley Center Plaza on Monday, July 14th from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. in Chicago Downtown.

Nathan Scott Wittler Patriquin was born on July 15, 1958, a day after Bastille Day which might explain why he pretends to speak French so well, after he lived in Paris, France and his Armenian god-parents and family friends always remember to celebrate his 56th birthday anniversary in the year 2014.

Saint Ita Catholic Church community always has the Tastes of Summer International Food Festival on the third Sunday, this year is scheduled for July 20th.

On July 25th, the City of Santiago de Cuba has the Carnival along with its 500th Anniversary in 2014. Cuba is celebrating its national holiday on Saturday, July 26, 2014.

Other family relatives also have another birthday anniversary in July. My Aunt Xiomara has her 66th birthday anniversary on July 28th, on the same day as my Cousin Ileana.

The month of July is full of festivities, celebrations, and national holidays for everyone.

“We’re a small north side neighborhood known for our Swedish heritage, welcoming attitude & diverse array of locally-owned businesses.” http://www.andersonville.org

“Andersonville is a quaint neighborhood in the middle of a world class city.”

The Edgeville Buzz showcases local issues, culture and impact in #Chicago’s #Andersonville and #Edgewater neighborhoods on Twitter. @Pink says our ‘hood rocks – and we agree!

The Andersonville Farmers Market takes place every Wednesday on Berwyn Street, between Clark and Ashland beginning on May 21st- Sept. 3rd, 3pm- 8pm, and Sept. 10th- Oct. 15th, 3pm- 7pm.

Andersonville reminds me of my college years at Northeastern Illinois University on the north side of Chicago. During the late 1970s and early 1980s, I was attending NEIU and worked as a student aide at the Financial Department with Marilyn Kuhn and Marie Lizewski Ruiz who lived and commuted from Andersonville to work from Foster Avenue to the Historic Bryn Mawr District and Catalpa Street by the B-Wing.

Another friend of my family, the late Bob Roessler lived on North Rascher Street with my brother near Clark Street in Andersonville, not far from the Travel School near Pelencho Travel Agency where I worked teaching Business English and Communications with Fabiola. After work sometimes, I used to stop by to visit them.

Ann Sather’s is one of my favorite places to visit in Andersonville for brunch or dinner with friends and family. Twenty-six (26) years ago, I had a Family Brunch for Father’s Day weekend at Ann Sather’s after my wedding on June 18, 1988.

Reza’s Restaurant has a vegetarian selection of dishes to enjoy the whole year round.

Andie’s Restaurant also offers appetizing dishes and global menu for epicureans.

Figure 1 Christmas Dinner at Andie’s Restaurant with Paul Tong and Robert S. Hung

More than thirty (30) years ago, I used to go shopping in Andersonville after work at the Travel Agency which used to be next to Pelencho’s Travel Agency. Pelencho was a Cuban-American Radio Personality, known familiarly as the “Pelencho Show” for Hispanic and Spanish-speaking radio fans and listeners.

While I was reading the Neighborhood Watch in Today’s Chicago Woman, I found out that Andersonville was a distant suburb of Chicago during the 1850’s boasting about a large cherry orchard which attracted Swedish immigrants to settle in greater numbers to the area known today as the Edgewater neighborhood by Lake Michigan in Illinois. The Swedes in Andersonville built a school in 1854 to establish a permanent Swedish community with cultural influence in Chicago. Afterwards, Andersonville thrived and eventually boasted that there were more Swedes in Chicago than in any city outside of Stockholm, Sweden.

The Swedish American Museum in Andersonville was visited by HRH the King of Sweden during its inauguration. The Museum is located at 5211 N. Clark St. in Andersonville, a traditionally Swedish area of Chicago’s north side. The entire community welcomes Swedish Americans and celebrates the Swedish holidays. Merchants and residents turn out for the very traditional Midsummer, Lucia and Christmas celebrations. Tourists visit the area continually to sample Swedish food, buy gifts, and visit the Museum. swedishamericanmuseum.org For additional info, contact museum@samac.org.

Andersonville brings back a lot of memories about people and places along Clark Street and in the Edgewater neighborhood. I used to work at Saint Augustine College on Argyle Street not far from Clark Street in the Uptown neighborhood and Little Chinatown. Commuting to Andersonville is easy and accessible by public transportation.

Walking leisurely through Andersonville is a good form of exercise along Clark Street, starting on Foster Avenue, to discover quaint and old-fashioned Swedish shops, restaurants, and something for everyone to enjoy in this taste of a Swedish neighborhood in the middle of Edgewater by Lake Michigan in Chicago.


A Nuisance in Lombard For Roofing Water Damages and Losses in Du Page
County, Illinois USA

Once upon a time, twenty years ago, a Chinese-Cuban family moved to Lilac Town at the corner of 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard to a historic Lombard Brick Bungalow built in 1927, which was surrounded by a wooden picket fence with only one entry gate on Washington Boulevard in District 5, York Township, Du Page County, Illinois  60148-3028 USA.

While the Chinese-Cuban family members were working very hard to pay their Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow during the day, afternoon, and night, Lombard wildlife, critters, animals, intruders, uninvited visitors, and trespassers would meander into the resident family’s fragrant Lilac garden, apples orchard, strawberry patch, and vegetable garden.  

After several home invasions during the day, afternoon, and  after midnight, the daughter called Ralph Schlemer the Handy Man from Elmhurst to install a gate lock to prevent trespassers and thieves from coming into the garden to cut off  fragrant lilac branches, kill the Perkins Peace Rose or access the Lombard home through the garden shed door.  The Elmhurst Handy Man also installed another electrical switch by the porch to turn on a large fluorescent light to illuminate the backyard and keep marauders off the premises, by adding changes to the Schlage door locks. 

All the Lombard resident homeowners’ efforts did not deter nor discourage a nuisance for damaging roofing structure by Critter Detectives in Lombard, DuPage County, Illinois USA.The Lombard home only had one young green Maple Tree in the middle of the backyard surrounded by a wooden picket fence and three Golden and Red Delicious Apple Trees in the backyard. 

One day the daughter noticed that the wooden picket fence posts had been sewed off at the bottom to open up a hole for animals and wildlife to access entry by Chuck, Robyn and Jennifer’s adjoining driveway.  Can you imagine, “Who would use a carpenter’s saw to sew off a wooden picket post to let animals, wildlife and critters into my back yard?”…while the Chinese-Cuban family was working during the day, afternoon, and nights.

The wooden picket fence around the Lombard Historic Bungalow never disturbed anyone until John and Eva Carpenter drove the Station Wagon backwards into the wooden fence posts while they were moving into the Ahrens-Stebens home the Summer of 2001. 

One afternoon, the daughter saw how Eva Carpenter backed into my Lombard wooden picket fence and  said, “You just broke the wooden posts when you backed without looking into the fence, Eva.” 

John Carpenter and the two sons must remember how they use to play basketball in their backyard and the ball would end up over the adjoining picket fence and the young son running after it would climb over the wooden picket fence into the Chinese-Cuban family backyard.

“Why did the Carpenters’ young son jump into the Chinese-Cuban family’s backyard?” when the

daughter saw him jump back home from the porch windows.That was not the only aggression against the Lombard wooden picket fence. 

Another day, the daughter found the squirrels racing around the fence at a maddening speeding, while they chased each other out, all around the backyard, only to jump up to the green Maple Tree. 

Blue birds and red cardinals also made their way into the Lombard garden and feasted on Golden and Red Delicious Apple Blossoms and budding apples. 

There was even a loud Wood Pecker by the Apple Orchard burrowing a whole into the tree trunks to make a nest.

There had never been so many birds, wildlife, animals, and strange people into the Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow garden, until the daughter saw a creepy, crawly Opossum or Possum which look like albino giant rats. 

After coming home from work one afternoon, she noticed that the grass had signs of a large reptile, slithering over the green lawn grass while leaving imprints on the backyard.  That day, she found the whole sewed off at the bottom of the wooden picket fence posts by Chuck and Robyn’s driveway on Washington Boulevard.

Then, the daughter saw two masked bandits sneaking into the Lombard garden.  Raccoons behave like crooks and criminals causing damages in the Lombard garden and backyard near the Illinois Prairie Path, the Lombard Lagoons, and all over Du Page County, Illinois USA. 

The critter marauders began to appropriate the backyard an climbed the rain gutter duct by the air conditioning unit to make a nest up on the roof.  Another raccoon climbed up the green Maple Tree to cross over and hide on the roof. 

That is when the daughter called Critter Detectives in Lombard at 1294 South Lloyd Avenue, Telephone: 630-916-7678.  According to Critter Detectives, “If You Have Critter Trouble, We’ll Be There on the Double for Nuisance Wildlife Relocation 1 (888) 271-8837.  Critter specialists in the Chicagoland area for 15 years since 1997″. 

The Chinese-Cuban family moved into Lilac Town on September 2, 1993.  Critter Detectives followed new Lombard homeowners four years after into Lilac Town upon demand of wildlife roaming red foxes, wild renegade coyotes, snakes, raccoons, squirrels, opossum, moles, groundhogs, skunks, beavers, birds, bats, dead animals, and geese hazing.

The brother referred me to Critter Detectives in Lombard to resolve home invasions by raccoons nesting on the roof after trespassing under and above the wooden picket fence posts surrounding the Lombard garden at 502 S. Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard in District 5, York Township, Du Page County, Illinois USA. 

When I would come out to the Lombard garden after work, I felt critter peering eyes gazing at me from the roofing above my head. One morning in May, a Hispanic Critter Detective drove up to the Lombard driveway and set up a Raccoon Trap on the roof of the Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow during May before the Memorial Day weekend. 

The Hispanic Critter Detective made a bigger hole to attach the Animal Trap to the Lombard roofing structure in order to catch the roving renegade raccoons who would come and go from this location.

Over the Memorial Day weekend, the Lombard resident homeowner went to observe the ceremony at the Daley Plaza Eternal Flame monument. 

Upon return to the Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow, she found one Raccoon caught inside the Animal Trap over the weekend. 

Then Lombard Policeman Mark Gouty knocked on the porch door and talked to her by the doorway saying that the neighbor, Eva Carpenter was disturbed by the Raccoon being caught in the Animal Trap set up by the Hispanic Critter Detective. 

The Lombard resident homeowner asked the Lombard Policeman Mark Gouty, “Why is Eva Carpenter complaining about the Raccoon caught in the Animal Trap?” 

Mark Gouty said that Eva Carpenter wanted the Raccoon released from the Animal Trap and set free. 

But, the Lombard resident homeowner said that she had called Critter Detectives in Lombard and “ did not want the Raccoon in the backyard anymore that is why Critter Detectives were called to catch the wildlife animal disturbing the Lombard home roofing and the backyard”. 

So, on Memorial Day weekend, Lombard Policeman Mark Gouty got into the Lombard backyard and picked up the Animal Trap with the Rogue Raccoon inside, as if the Lombard Policeman was arresting the wildlife Raccoon for being in the Lombard backyard inside the Critter Detective Animal Trap. 

The irony was that the Lombard resident homeowner had called Critter Detectives about a nuisance wildlife damaging roofing structure. “Why was Lombard Policeman Mark Gouty intruding upon the Critter Detectives’ Animal Trap with the Rascal Raccoon caught inside during Memorial Day weekend?”

Obviously, Eva Carpenter was meddling in the Critter Detectives’ Animal Trap with the Raccoon inside over the Memorial Day Weekend in the neighbor’s backyard, not the Carpenters’ driveway.

So, Lombard Policeman Mark Gouty said, “I am going to take the Animal Trap with the Raccoon inside and remove the wildlife”. 

The Lombard resident homeowner told him that “Critter Detectives had set up the Animal Trap which belonged to them and they expected to find a Raccoon inside”.

Upon return from the Memorial Day Observance, the daughter who was also a Lombard resident homeowner was upset that Eva Carpenter was interfering with the Critter Detectives’ Animal Trap containing the crooked Raccoon caught inside for the holiday. 

The Raccoon had already built a nest on the roof of the Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow and the Hispanic Trapper caught the wildlife nuisance into the Animal Trap.

After the Lombard resident homeowner talked to Mark Gouty, he made the mistake of walking into the Lombard garden, picking up the Critter Detectives’ Animal Trap with a nuisance wildlife Raccoon, and setting the Animal Cage inside the Lombard Police squad car for District 5 in the Village of Lombard.  Mark Gouty said that he would bring back the Critter Detective’s Animal Cage to the Lombard home backyard. 

Forty-five minutes later, Mark Gouty returned with an empty Animal Cage. 

The Lombard resident homeowner asked him, “What did you do with the Raccoon?”  Mark Gouty answered that he drove to the Grace St. Lagoon by North Avenue and released the Raccoon there. 

The Lombard Policeman Mark Gouty released free the criminal Raccoon which had set up a small nest on the Lombard roofing structure overlooking the backyard.

“What!” I said, “that Raccoon is going to find the way back to the Lombard nest on the roof…”  I am going to complain about the Lombard Police releasing rogue wildlife free at the Lombard Grace Street Lagoon by North Avenue, between the Village of Lombard and Addison in Du Page County, Illinois USA. 

I did not know that Lombard Policeman Mark Gouty had to arrest a caged Raccoon on Memorial Day during May.  Eva Carpenter, the Lombard neighbor, and Lombard Policeman Mark Gouty were both accomplices and access to criminal roofing damages caused by the Raccoon when the Lombard Policeman released the wildlife Raccoon entrapped and caged by Critter Detectives at 502 S.
Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard, Lombard, IL 60148-3028 USA.

The next day, the Hispanic Critter Detective picked up the Animal Trap empty, without the Wildlife Raccoon which had been caught and released over the Memorial Day weekend by Lombard Policeman Mark Gouty who set the Raccoon free by the Grace Street Lagoon near North Avenue between Lombard and Addison in Du Page County.

Unfortunately, the Hispanic Critter Detective did not cover up nor repair the bigger hole he made while setting up the Animal Trap Cage to catch the nuisance wildlife Raccoon during the Memorial Day weekend at 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard in District 5, Village of Lombard, Illinois USA.

Afterwards, the wildlife Raccoon returned with another mate to set up the nest in the same location where the first Raccoon had started residence on the Lombard home roof.  The nuisance wildlife continued marauding and intruding upon the Lombard homeowners real estate property ever after that Memorial Day weekend in May.

A Father’s Day Wedding Twenty-six Years Ago

What Happened To Gardenia C. Hung Since She Married Nathan Scott Wittler Patriquin?

Twenty-six (26) years ago, I, Gardenia C. Hung, married Nathan Scott Wittler (Patriquin) on Saturday, June 18, 1988 in Chicago, City Hall, and held a Wedding Reception aboard the Star of Chicago yacht at Navy Pier by Lake Michigan, in Illinois USA. Family witnesses to our wedding ceremony included my Father, Mr. Roberto Hung Juris Doctor, my youngest brother Robert S. Hung, his parents Reverend Melvin A. Wittler and Mrs. Nancy Wittler (Patriquin) who invited his family from Hartington, Nebraska bringing his Mother Wittler and his brother Duane Wittler and sister Virginia and her husband George Fox who also flew to Chicago with his brother-in-law Dr. David Patriquin M.D. and his wife Cynthia Patriquin from Ohio, my Uncle Filiberto Hung and his wife Mireya Hung Lee came with my cousin Ana Mireya Hung Lee who travelled from Flushing, New York, Nathan’s siblings, Bryan Wittler, Kent Wittler, Heather Wittler and her boyfriend John Eruren arrived from West Dummerston, Vermont to attended the public wedding ceremony at the City Hall in Chicago, Illinois USA. Other wedding guests were Mirtha Quintana and her Mother Josefa Quintana who were invited as friends, colleagues, Marie Lizewski, a co-Worker from Northeastern Illinois University, Anthony Graham-White who was Faculty from the University of Illinois attended my wedding. Robert Hung’s friend Bob Roessler and his girlfriend Joan attended the yatch wedding reception and three-hour cruise on the Star of Chicago by Navy Pier. The Wittlers family invited Reverend Schoup and his wife from Evergreen Park, Chicago, to the wedding reception on the Star of Chicago and Christian missionaries American Friends of Turkey were invited to the Wedding Luncheon near the Belmont Hotel on Friday afternoon where they were staying by the Belmont Harbor, Lake Michigan in Illinois. Nancy Wittler brought the wedding favors and gifts from Istanbul, Turkey to celebrate the first wedding in her family for her first son Nathan S. Wittler at the age of 30 years old. Over the years, Reverend Melvin A. Wittler and Mrs. Nancy Wittler had made many friends around Christian missionaries American Friends of Turkey (AFOT) at the University of Chicago and Hyde Park, as well as in the Midwest and across the United States of America. During June 1988, the Wittlers were returning to the USA to visit their family, friends on vacation from their Christian missionary work with the World Council of Churches in Istanbul, Turkey. After our wedding and reception, Reverend Melvin A. Wittler and Mrs. Nancy Wittler returned to their farm in West Dummerston, South Vermont, New England. My Mother, Mrs. Gardenia Fong Ramos, refused to attend my Wedding Ceremony and Reception, even though I had purchased a fancy dress for her to wear at my Wedding with Nathan S. Wittler (Patriquin). My Mother, Mrs. Gardenia Fong Ramos did not attend my Wedding Ceremony or the Reception aboard the Star of Chicago Yacht Cruise along Lake Michigan, Illinois USA.

Since I married Nathan Scott Wittler (Patriquin), I have never had any children from our marriage with him because he does not want to have any offsprings with me. Our honeymoon getaway was in Madison, Wisconsin.

Early on June 7, 2001, I was driving Nathan Scott Wittler (Patriquin) to work at Global Logistics in Bensenville, taking North Avenue to Route 83, Kingery Road, when from the passenger’s seat, Nathan leaned over and pulled the steering wheel down which changed the front tires to make a left turn on the median, while Nathan tried to cause me to have an auto accident. The left front tire turned and budged against the median and the white Mitsubishi sedan made a sudden left turn, while my right foot hit the brakes immediately. “What are you doing, Nathan?” I asked him. “Are you trying to cause a car accident on North Avenue?” I was so mad at Nathan Scott Wittler (Patriquin) that I told him that I’d had enough trouble with him and wanted to get a divorce after his attempt to cause me a car accident early morning on North Avenue, near the intersection of Route 83, Kingery Road, on the way to driving Nathan to work at Global Logistics in Bensenville, Illinois.

After I married Nathan Scott Wittler (Patriquin), I have had a lot of problems, troubles, four (4) kidnappings, auto accidents, home invasions, induced drugs and forced hospitalizations, vandalism, burglaries, theft, murder-for-hire conspiracies to and from going to work, violence against women, domestic violence, human trafficking abuses, tortures, physical injuries, a cardiac stroke, Lombard Criminal Disaster Roofing Water Damages and Losses, and loss of my civil rights and liberties as the spouse of Nathan Scott Wittler (Patriquin). I have been a resident homeowner and taxpayer, Lombard Victim of Heinous Hate Crimes After Midnight, abused, injected, and kidnapped at 502 S. Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard, in Du Page County, Illinois 60148, USA.

Since my Father, Mr. Roberto Hung Juris Doctor purchased Lombard real estate property at 502 South Westmore Avenue and Washington Boulevard, I have been kidnapped four (4) times while I have been married to Nathan Scott Wittler (Patriquin) and after I have lived in the Village of Lombard as an Illinois resident homeowner and taxpayer in District 5, York Township, Du Page County, Illinois USA.

A Certified Interpreter and Translator Experience in the Chicagoland Area, Illinois
I began to interpret and translate for Trans-lingual, Inc. downtown Chicago; then I was hired by Action Translation Bureau owned by Joseph Raudonis in Palos Heights to interpret from English into Spanish and vice versa at the Illinois Industrial Commission where I met Carmen Kenny & Associates who networked interpreters for Illinois Workman’s Compensation hearings, arbitrations, and legal depositions, including medical interpreting and translations for Gloria Domenech & Associates, Burg Translations, Palencia Language Services. I was working as an independent freelance interpreter and translator when I was hired by Linguist Systems Inc. managed by Caroline Weaver De Philips in Cambridge and Boston, Massachusetts. While browsing the local newspapers, I found Interlate Systems Inc. looking for a legal interpreter and translator to work for Traffic Court in the City of Elgin, Aurora, St. Charles at the Kane County Judicial Center, Batavia, Wheaton at the Du Page County Judicial Center, Lake County, Will County, McHenry County, Grundy, LaSalle, DeKalb, and in the Chicagoland area. Over thirty years, I have worked with many other interpreting and translation agencies in the Chicagoland area as a professional certified member of the Chicago Area Translators Association while John Bukacek and Arnoldo Higuero were managing the CHICATA telephone referrals for interpreter assignments, the American Translators Association, and the Federation of International Translators. The Translators and Interpreters Lab (TIP) was managed by Alicia Marshall and Yrma Villareal who also invited Dr. Holly Mikkelson, Ph.D. from Monterey Institute of Languages to train and certify interpreters and translators for CHICATA in Illinois USA. http://youtu.be/-ft5y5X37QE

During 1994, I was working as a Certified Interpreter and Translator for Interlate Systems Inc. assigned to Traffic Court in the City of Elgin, Aurora, Batavia, St. Charles, Geneva, Kane County Judicial Center, Addison, Wheaton in Du Page County, Illinois. I was a professional member of the Chicago Area Translators and Interpreters Association (CHICATA), American Translators Association (ATA), and the Federation of International Translators (FIT-IFT). During the course of employment as a Certified Interpreter and Translator, I was kidnapped by a Black Man from a Parking Lot in Aurora, Kane County, Illinois and forced into a car, abused, physically injured, and hospitalized without my name, as an Alias Unknown Patient after my wallet with identification was stolen and money was taken as well, along with household keys to my Lombard home at 502 S. Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard, in District 5, York Township, Du Page County, Illinois 60148-3028 USA. I was unconscious after a head concussion and a blunt hit to the head which caused me to pass out and could not return to my Lombard home in Du Page County, Illinois USA. http://youtu.be/E-I8vflYpqw

Some years ago at my home, a Lombard policeman who offered to drive me home, injured me and stumped my big toe to damage my right foot, causing a permanent right foot injury, after I was kidnapped during work, following a legal interpreting assignment for Interlate Languages Systems, Inc. in Aurora, Illinois. Since then, my fractured right toe has become “halgus valgus”, never healing properly, and has developed into a hammertoe which reclines upon other toes with discomfort and distress upon walking, jogging, or running exercise.

On the 30th Anniversary of Crime Victims’ Rights, I remember how I have been a Victim of Violence Against Women, Kidnappings, Torture, Heinous Hate Crimes, Human Trafficking in Du Page County, Illinois, as a Lombard resident homeowner at 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard, near St. Pius X Catholic Church and School.

I was kidnapped from the Master bedroom of the historic Lombard bungalow while I was sleeping after midnight. The house keys to our family home were passed around to Lombard Police and (CI) Covert Informants, so they could have unauthorized access entry to the Hung-Wittler family home when the Lombard resident homeowners were working during the day, afternoon or nights. After midnight, I woke up suddenly and noticed a group of men around the bed. Someone pulled me away from my husband who was sleeping next to me. I started to scream out his name, while the man pulled me forcefully away from my husband who was still in bed. The man carried me away in the new pajamas which Nathan Scott Wittler (Patriquin) had bought for me at the Yorktown Shopping Center in Lombard.

The kidnapper was a White Tall Man, a skinned-head, who pulled me away from my husband while I was in bed and carried me away. The intruder used a hypodermic needle to induce drugs so I would pass out and stop screaming.
Since I remember that I was taken away from the Village of Lombard to another town where I was tortured. During the torture session, my fingers and the palms of my hands were passed over hot flames and singed to damages my fingerprints—I passed out from the pain and abuse of torture. The tips of my fingers were numb and flat. My hands have become weak and I cannot grasp objects which slip away from my fingers and drop onto the floor. I have lost the sense of grasping from both hands and fingers. There is also loss of memory and disability from the damages to my feet since I could not walk. When I returned home with Nathan Scott Wittler (Patriquin) who picked me up after I was tortured, he drove me home. When we got into the kitchen, Nathan Scott Wittler was angry and mad at me, so he took a kitchen knife and started to push the knife into my forearm, leaving a white scar which I still have today.

After midnight and while I was sleeping after working as a Certified Legal Court Interpreter and Translator, intruders would come into the house and inject me on the right side of the neck, behind the right ear and on the rear of the right ear. I was unconscious and sleeping during the kidnapping—aware that I was being abused in my sleep state, like a nightmare when I could not open my eyes and get up.

After I married Nathan Scott Wittler (Patriquin) and since I moved to the Village of Lombard, I had several near-death experiences and motor vehicles with mechanical failures leading to accidents on the Illinois roads and highways. There was a bullet hole on the middle window of the Lombard Brick Bungalow facing Washington Boulevard at 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road in the Village of Lombard, York Township, County of DuPage, Illinois, United States of America. My Lombard neighbors residing directly across Washington Boulevard reported criminal access to the Hung-Wittler Family garage after Midnight. Lombard Police Reports support criminal access to the Motor Vehicles owned by the Hung-Wittler Family during their Lombard residency as homeowners and taxpayers at 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road.

When I was working as a Federal Employee Claims Examiner Analyst for the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Workman’s Compensation, Employment Standards Administration, General Services Administration at 230 South Dearborn Street, Kluczynski Building on the 8th Floor, I had a motor vehicle accident while driving the Nissan 200SX near Lawrence Avenue in Chicago, Illinois during October 1991.

My Care Story involves Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois healthcare insurance coverage used in 1991 while I worked as a federal employee at the Department of Labor, Office of Workman’s Compensation. I was abused and injured by Richard Kadus after 5:30 p.m. with Anita Freeney and Lois Ware who were present during the altercation and left me behind induced by drug overnight at my office desk, face down on the table at the Department of Labor overnight and did not take me home. A few days later, I got into a car accident and was hospitalized at Rush St. Luke Presbyterian Hospital near the University of Illinois during October, November, December, 1991, and January 1992. Then hospital staff abused and injured me at Rush St. Luke Presbyterian Hospital which extended my stay as a patient until January 1992. I have asked for reimbursement of my Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois healthcare coverage during my federal employment since I was injured as a result of abuse by Richard Kadus at the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Workman’s Compensation, and also because of hospital staff abusing and injuring my arm which was in a sling at Rush St. Luke Presbyterian Hospital in Chicago. http://youtu.be/PviNn7nDOxc

As a Lombard Victim of High Crimes at 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road, all my Illinois Motor Vehicles suffered from human sabotage and conspiracy malfunction leading to mechanical failures, damages, and losses which caused accidents on the highway during the course of employment as a Certified Court Interpreter, Translator at the Illinois County Courts, City Courts, and Traffic Courts in Aurora, Addison, Elgin, Joliet, St. Charles, Waukegan, Highland Park, Wheaton, DeKalb, LaSalle, Grundy, Geneva, Chicago, Skokie, and during employment as a Communications Consultant for Arroyave Language Academy in Highland Park and Arlington Heights, Berlitz Schools of Languages, Inlingua School of Languages, as an Adjunct Faculty for the College of DuPage, Business Professional Institute, Center for Independent Learning. The AAA Motor Club and Shell Motor Club provided emergency towing service and assistance on the Illinois highways during Motor Vehicle Failures and Accident. The Illinois State Police have assisted and witnessed the Geo Tracker Rollover Accident I had off the ramp from Route 83, Kingery Hwy, leading to I-90 one evening, on my way to Highland Park for the Arroyave Academy evening class I was teaching, when I returned from Berlin, Germany and London, United Kingdom in Europe. During the rainy drive, the Geo Tracker Brakes failed to stop the motor vehicle driving up the ramp, and steered away from the road, off the highway onto to a water ditch. I could not stop the Geo Tracker from rolling off and driving into the water ditch off the ramp on I-90 and Route 83, Kingery Highway. The Geo Tracker was also stolen from the College of Du Page West Parking Lot by the Police Academy, while I was teaching Spanish for Health Care Professionals at the College of Du Page in Glen Ellyn, as reported by the Glen Ellyn Police Department. I have had Flat Tires before going to work at the College of DuPage. Also, the Geo Tracker had Electrical Failures when the Fuses Blew Out.

Then, when I used the Nissan 200SX, the Front Axle Broke Off and Right Front Tire Drove Off the highway on I-90 off Route 83, Kingery Highway, when I was on my way to the Arroyave Academy evening class I was teaching in Highland Park, Illinois. I had to call for Emergency Towing Service and cancel the last class I was teaching for Guillermo Arroyave Academy of Languages in Highland Park.
I tried to order a Brand New Mercedes SUV from Loeber Motors in Westmont, but the Motor Vehicle Has a Damaged Tire and Axle as an Imported Car from Germany—reported to the German-American Chamber of Commerce in Chicago, Illinois.

Afterwards, I used my Father’s White Mitsubishi Gallant which was Damaged and Sabotaged when After Midnight Intruders into the Garage Used Glue Poured on the Engine, which Caused Smoke Leading to a Hole in the Engine Block—I have a Picture of the Hole in the Engine Block after the Mechanic Replaced the Entire Engine Block. The Mitsubishi Gallant was permanently damages and given to Bongo’s Towing Service in Villa Park, Illinois.
Later, on May 29 and subsequently during June 2003, I purchased two (2) motorcycles, a Yamaha Zuma and a Derbi Boulevard 150 CC from Julio Aquino and Larry Wolfe at Champion Cycle Center, Inc. paying cash for both purchases. Both, the Yamaha Zuma and the Derbi Boulevard 150 CC suffered from Motorcycle Mechanical Failures at Champion Cycle Center, Inc.

June 7, 1931-2014

The historic city of Santiago de Cuba was established in the year 1515 and founded by Diego Velázquez de Cuéllar. The motto of Santiago de Cuba is still in Spanish “Rebelde Ayer. Hospitalaria Hoy. Heroica Siempre.” During the 21st century, Santiago de Cuba commemorates its 500th anniversary as the second largest city of Cuba in the southeastern region of the Caribbean island.

Eighty-three years ago, in the year 1931, the historical population of Santiago de Cuba was estimated to be of 101, 508 inhabitants and residents. On June 7, 1931, Roberto Hung Mustelier was born, the fourth youngest son of Santiago Hung Choi and Gertrudis Salustiana Mustelier in a family home of Santiago de Cuba, near the Military Hospital and General Guillermón Moncada Headquarters, known today as the Ciudad Escolar 26 de Julio. Antoñica, “Ñica”, second sister of Gertrudis Salustiana was a registered nurse at the hospital and witnessed the birth of Roberto, her nephew. Her oldest sister, Eduvigis was a certified teacher and helped her with the older children Luz Leing, Miguel Chung, and Filiberto Yuck while she was giving birth and nursing the fourth baby, Roberto. Mario Mustelier was also around to help the family when Gertrudis and Santiago had their fourth baby son, his nephew.

Eight years afterwards, World War II began on September 1st, 1939 in Europe. Roberto Hung was only eight years old and studying in third grade at the Elementary School, when the Second World War started as a global international war in 1939. His youngest sister Caridad Cei-Chieng had already been born in a Cuban-Chinese family of five (5) children born to Santiago and Gertrudis Salustiana in Santiago de Cuba.

In 1945, WWII ended on September 2, 1945, when Roberto Hung was a 14-year-old beginning as a freshman in High School, planning to attend Law School at the Universidad de Oriente in Santiago de Cuba and the Universidad de La Habana in Cuba, three years later. On Roberto Hung’s seventeenth birthday anniversary, his oldest brother Miguel Chung and sister-in-law Silvia Simons had a new baby daughter named Olivia Hung-Simons, who was born on the same date, June 7th. So, Roberto Hung was asked to become his niece’s godfather upon christening of his brother’s and sister-in-law’s new baby daughter. Olivia Hung-Simons was born on June 7, 1948, after the Second World War ended, during the Baby Boom years.

Since Great Grandmother Antonia and Great Grandfather Juan lived across the Military Hospital with their daughters Eduvigis, Antoñica, Gertrudis Salustiana, and youngest son Mario, their children grew up around military veterans of foreign wars who travelled to Cuba and were treated for military rehabilitation and recovery by Cuban medical staff in Santiago de Cuba.

Today is the Memorial Birthday Anniversary celebrating 83 years for people like Roberto Hung who were born on June 7th and lived through the Second World War when the country of Cuba was among the Allied countries around the world who were involved in WWII.

The eldest Daughter of Mr. Roberto Hung has not received Lombard Real Estate Payment nor Compensation or Restitution as a Du Page resident homeowner and Illinois Victim of Heinous Hate Crimes at 502 South Westmore Avenue and Washington Boulevard, following the Lombard Criminal Disaster Roofing Water Damages and Losses Demolition arranged by Lombard Fire Department Chief George Seagraves, Lombard Police Chief Ray Byrne, Keith Steiskal, David Hulseberg, Bill Mueller, Laura Fitzpatrick, Diane Arturi, Michael Mariani, John Valle, and others in the Village of Lombard, York Township, in Du Page County, Illinois USA. The Village of Lombard owes Gardenia Hung-Wittler real estate payment, compensation, and restitution as a Lombard resident homeowner, Illinois Victim of Heinous Hate Crimes in District 5, York Township, Du Page County, Illinois, United States of America.

In June 1993, Mr. Roberto Hung was sixty-two (62) years old when his youngest son and wife encouraged him to buy Lombard real estate property in Lilac Town with his oldest daughter and son-in-law who would help him pay for the historic Lombard brick bungalow at 502 South Westmore Avenue and Washington Boulevard one block north from St. Pius X Church and School Parish and three blocks from the Illinois Secretary of State Motor Vehicles Facility at Eastgate Shopping Center. The Westmore Elementary School is only one block north on School Street. The Deicke Home for the Retarded is three blocks away from the same location. Mr. Roberto Hung, his eldest daughter, and son-in-law started looking for Lombard real estate property to purchase during the summer in Du Page County, Illinois USA. Finally, Mr. Roberto Hung found a Lombard Brick Bungalow at 502 South Westmore Avenue and Washington Boulevard with the help of Baird & Warner Realtor Paulette Weininger and Century 21 Realtor Dino Lekousis from the Lombard Pines Shopping Center on Main Street, across from the J.W. Reedy Realty office. The Lombard historic brick bungalow was built in 1927 and was owned by Debra Seckreki and her father Adam Seckreki, who lived there with two children, and a senior citizen named Stella who resided on the second floor in-law apartment. Mr. Roberto Hung, his eldest daughter, and son-in-law purchased the Lombard historic brick bungalow and have lived in the Village of Lombard, Lilac Town, as Illinois resident homeowner in District 5, York Township, Du Page County, Illinois USA.

Since Debra Sekrecki and her father Adam Sekrecki owed $2,800 in Lombard real estate property taxes in 1993, Mr. Roberto Hung had to pay Du Page County for the Lombard Brick Bungalow real estate taxes in York Township on September 2, 1993. In addition, Mr. Roberto Hung also paid in cash $89,000, half of the down payment as deposit for the Lombard real estate property at 502 South Westmore Avenue and Washington Boulevard in District 5, York Township, Du Page County, Illinois 60148-3028 USA. On September 2, 1993, Mr. Roberto Hung, his eldest daughter, and son-in-law began payment of Lombard real estate property mortgage to own the historic brick bungalow, while the three of them were working full-time, part-time, and on weekends.

Three (3) years later on September 2, 1996, Mr. Roberto Hung and his eldest daughter completed full cash payment of the same Lombard real estate property at 502 S. Westmore Avenue at the Maple Park State Bank in Kane County, Illinois USA. The eldest daughter was a witness to the full cash payment for the Lombard real estate property in Du Page County, Illinois USA.
The eldest Daughter of Mr. Roberto Hung has not received Lombard Real Estate Payment nor Compensation or Restitution as a Du Page resident homeowner and Illinois Victim of Heinous Hate Crimes at 502 South Westmore Avenue and Washington Boulevard, following the Lombard Criminal Disaster Roofing Water Damages and Losses Demolition arranged by Lombard Fire Department Chief George Seagraves, Lombard Police Chief Ray Byrne, Keith Steiskal, David Hulseberg, Bill Mueller, Laura Fitzpatrick, Diane Arturi, Michael Mariani, John Valle, and others in the Village of Lombard, York Township, in Du Page County, Illinois USA.

“Where is the JVC Digital Mini-Cassette Video File For The Stained Glass Windows at Navy Pier in Illinois?”

During 1999, fourteen (14) years ago, I discovered a treasure trove of stained glass windows and relics, while walking along Navy Pier at the Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows. In order to preserve a digital memory of my findings, I video recorded my stained glass visions on my JVC digital cybercamera in a mini-cassette digital video file. While video-editing on my Packard Bell computer, I left the JVC mini-cassette digital video file on my second floor Home Office desk at 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard which used to be my Father’s business office before he was murdered at Vencor Northlake Hospital on June 18, 1998. Since I have been victimized by repeated and deliberate home invasions as a Lombard resident homeowner, intruders and trespassers in my Home Business Office stole my JVC digital mini-cassette video file featuring religious and secular stained windows at the Smith Museum Navy Pier by Lake Michigan in Illinois USA. Many years have passes since then, while I still remember the missing JVC mini-cassette digital video file containing stained glass images from the Smith Museum.

Last week, I had another chance to wander around Navy Pier and walked right into the Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows once again, featuring other stained glass masterpieces and treasures from the past, present, and future craftsmen in the Chicagoland area and around the world.

The Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows at Navy Pier by Lake Michigan in Illinois is the only museum in the United States dedicated specifically for stained glass windows. The following is a virtual description of the stained windows featured on site.

The Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows is a permanent display of 150 stained glass windows housed in an 800-ft.-long series of galleries along the lower level terraces of Festival Hall. Open since February 2000, it is the first museum in the United States dedicated solely to stained glass windows. It showcases both secular and religious windows and is divided by artistic theme into four categories: Victorian, Prairie, Modern and Contemporary. All of the windows were designed by prominent local, national and European studios and most were originally installed in Chicago area residential, commercial and religious buildings.

The windows provide unique insight into Chicago’s cultural, ethnic and artistic history. The time period they represent, 1870 to the present, was an era of intense urban revision that featured the development, decline and revitalization of neighborhoods, the development of commercial and cultural institutions, the evolution of artistic styles and the response of various ethnic groups to these changes. The religious windows reveal the national and ethnic styles of Chicago’s European immigrants, while the residential windows display the history of architecture and decorative art styles. Stained Glass Window

Figure 1 Tiffany Gallery of Stained Glass Windows

Well-known artists’ windows on display include Louis Comfort Tiffany and John LaFarge, as well as Chicago artists Ed Paschke and Roger Brown. The museum also presents unique contemporary pieces including stained glass portraits of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Michael Jordan and a window created from soda pop bottles.

The Richard H. Driehaus Gallery of Stained Glass is also featured within the Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows. This extraordinary collection features 13 windows that highlight the work of Louis Comfort Tiffany and his workshop from 1890-1930.

All 13 windows come from Tiffany’s studio in New York City, and he specifically designed most of the stained glass. Tiffany first began experimenting with glass art in 1873. He opened the Tiffany Glass Company in 1885; it then became the Tiffany Glass and Decorating Company and later Tiffany Studios. After designing hundreds of beautiful windows for churches, public buildings and homes of his wealthy clients, Tiffany became one of the most well-known glass designers in the United States, and his reputation for experimentation in stained glass techniques and originality in design is unsurpassed.

Stained Glass Window: The Tiffany windows in the Driehaus Gallery, some of which are pairs or triptychs, are showcased in an enclosed, dark area and lit with artificial light. This theatrical atmosphere gives visitors the opportunity to view the windows in the most vivid setting possible. Each window in this exhibition incorporates several types of glass crafted from various techniques, including drapery, opalescent, etched and enameled glass. The glass plates are held in place by copper foil and lead, which support the windows and make them durable and weather resistant. The relationship between the different colors, the densities of layers and the techniques applied combine to create extraordinary luminescence and vibrancy of color and detail. Among the windows featured in the gallery are:

Rapelye Memorial – St. John’s Episcopal Church, New Jersey. Religious windows, especially memorial windows, were the cornerstones of Louis Comfort Tiffany’s stained glass business. Although clients often requested figural windows, Tiffany preferred floral and landscape themes for memorial windows. He felt these themes drew their inspiration directly from the Creator. Poppies represent the Resurrection and passionflowers symbolize the Crucifixion of Christ.

Girl with Cherry Blossoms – probably commissioned for a private home. Private clients occasionally requested portraits of their loved ones. In this window, the figure is not identified but is likely the portrait of a client’s daughter. Tiffany avoided use of enamels in his windows, with the exception of painted faces, hands and feet.

Stained Glass Window: The Annunciation – probably commissioned for a church. As an artist, Tiffany’s use of perspective and selection of glass added to the theatrical quality of the window. In this diptych of the Annunciation, note the use of milky white glass that covers much of the composition. When the window is backlit, the image is softened, giving a sense of depth to the architecture and drama to the scene. When the light is turned off, the viewer only sees the milky white layer.

The Richard H. Driehaus Gallery of Stained Glass is representative of Driehaus’ collection of both religious and secular windows, which he has accumulated over the past 25 years. This is the first public exhibition focused on his private collection.

Travel Tips To Leaf Peeping Travel by Car in Vermont, New England

Autumn Season Driving To Vermont From Illinois in the Midwest, USA

Twenty years ago, on September 3, 1993, my Father Mr. Roberto Hung J.D. purchased a Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow and Nathan S. Wittler and I moved to the Village of Lombard in DuPage County during September, he wanted to drive out east to Vermont, the Green Mountain state in New England in the new sandstone sportscar Nissan 200SX which featured an auto-pilot self-driving steering wheel to handle the miles on the US highways. Nathan S. Wittler wanted to visit his parents Reverend Melvin A. Wittler and Mrs. Nancy Wittler (Patriquin) at the West Dummerston Farm by the West River near Brattleboro, Vermont in New England. The Wittlers planned the annual Wittler-Patriquin Family reunion with Grandfather Patriquin’s clan for a family wedding involving Kent Wittler and Linda Goetz. The fourth time, Nate’s youngest brother Kent Wittler became engaged to Linda Goetz from Cooperstown, New York and decided to get married in South Vermont, New England.

The Autumn season driving to Vermont from Illinois in the Midwest was going to be the fourth leaf-pipping tour time for me to enjoy the colorful display of Fall leaves around West Dummerston and Brattleboro by the West River in New England. Fall in Vermont is one of the best times to get away on a long car drive to travel in the Green Mountain state. After the wedding, Nathan and I planned to drive north through Vermont and cross the Canadian border around Lake Champlain into the province of Québec to visit Montréal and drive on the Canadian highway Route 401 to Ontario towards Saute St. Marie and Detroit Michigan for the scenic tour around the Great Lakes back to Illinois in the Midwest.

Previously, Nathan S. Wittler and I had travelled to South Vermont after getting married ourselves aboard the Star of Chicago at Navy Pier by Lake Michigan in the Illinois, USA.

Nate and I attended the family wedding reunion for his youngest sister Heather Wittler and Jon Eruren at the Vermont farm in New England. We drove east from the Land of Lincoln through Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Massachussetts, New Hampshire, and New York all the way to West Dummerston by the West River near Brattleboro in South Vermont, New England.

Afterwards, Nathan’s second brother Bryan Wittler got married to Peggy Cano and moved to Newfane near West Dummerston in South Vermont. The second time travelling to New England, Nathan and I decided to fly to Boston, Massachusetts to pick up his youngest brother Kent Wittler who was studying at Harvard University. So, Nate and I flew into Logan Airport in Boston, then rented a National car to drive out to South Vermont after we picked up Kent Wittler by Harvard University in Boston. I was driving out the National rental car while Nate and Kent were talking and trying to catch up on the family and friends events. The three of us, me, Nate and Kent drove out on U.S. Highway 1 from Boston, Massachusetts to West Dummerston and Brattleboro, New England to meet the Wittlers and the Patriquins at the farm by the West River in South Vermont. We drove safely through the Boston city traffic and the New England commuters travelling to South Vermont in New England for the Autumn family wedding reunion. Since I was driving carefully, there were no traffic tickets nor moving violations during our Autumn season driving through New England and the East coast on our way to West Dummerston and Brattleboro in South Vermont.

Pre-planning, fuel budgeting, and AAA Motor Club member deals can make a great Fall Leaf Peeping driving across the Midwest from Illinois through Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, South Vermont and northbound across the Green Mountain state towards Stowe, Burlington, Montpelier and around Lake Champlain into the Canadian border and the province of Québec en route to Montréal and across Ontario following the Canadian Highway 401 into Saute St. Marie, Windsor, and Detroit, through the scenic Lake Michigan tour-de-lac back to the Land of Lincoln.

My Father, Mr. Roberto Hung J.D. was the third son of Santiago Hung, a Chinese merchant who settled in Santiago de Cuba and had an older son by the name of Barry Ng and sister Diane Chong who is married with family, Harry Ng, Gary Fung and Lorraine Fung, and Canadian Famiy in Richmond, British Columbia.  I have visited my Canadian Chinese family twice in Vancouver and Richmond, British Columbia, Canada.

Mr. Roberto Hung J.D. was a business attorney involved in mining prospecting business development and labor issues at El Cobre Mining Company near Santiago de Cuba, in Cuba during the late 1950s.  His Canadian Chinese family and half-brother Barry Ng, the Grandmother, Diane Chong, Lorraine Fung and Family from Vancouver, BC Canada visited Santiago de Cuba for a Chinese Family Reunion where my Grandfather Santiago Hung and my Father Roberto Hung hosted them and invited them to travel with them to El Cobre in Cuba where they took photographs to remember their meeting again as family.  My Grandfather Santiago Hung and my Father Roberto Hung provided money for their Canadian airfare roundtrip from Vancouver, British Columbia, in Canada to Santiago de Cuba, in Cuba and back to Vancouver, BC Canada.



“Why Were The Japanese I Language Handbook and Workbook Stolen in the Village of Lombard, DuPage County, Illinois?”

After the family of Roberto Hung J.D. purchased two (2) homes for Lombard real estate property and community development starting in 1992-1993, our family became a target of repeated home invasions, trespassing, and unauthorized access entries into our private homes and lives by Lombard thieves who began by stealing my Japanese I Language Handbook and Workbook from the University of Illinois at Chicago Graduate Studies Program, among the many personal and private belongings, photographs, family memorabilia that I have lost in the Village of Lombard, to include the life of my Father, Mr. Roberto Hung J.D. who was abused, physically injured at home on the longest night Winter of Solstice, December 21-22, 1996, and finally murdered at Vencor Northlake Hospital in Cook County, Illinois USA.

When Lombard resident homeowners hear a knocking on the door and open the door, sometimes they become fatal victims of heinous hate crimes, shooting by gun fire, physical abuse, beatings, induced drug injections, stabbings, burglaries, arson, violence in DuPage County, Illinois USA.

The former Village of Lombard Trustee in District 1 Richard Tross was shot by gun fire after he opened the door one evening in Lilac Town. While the late Japanese-American Mrs. Rose Tani, Mother of the NASA astronaut Daniel Tani suffered from a fatal auto accident collision with the Metra West Line Union Pacific train at the intersection of Grace Street and St. Charles Road in Lombard, DuPage County, Illinois USA.

During my life residency in the Village of Lombard as a homeowner and taxpayer at 502 S. Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard, I was working mornings, afternoons, and evenings as a Certified Interpreter and Translator and Illinois Notary Public, Adjunct Faculty at the Community College sites in DuPage County, and as Cross-Cultural Languages Instructor for the Berlitz Schools of Languages and Inlingua. While I was commuting and driving to work for regular employment during the day, afternoons and evenings, Lombard thieves began to steal from my Lombard home and family property.

While I have been married to Turkish-American Nathan Scott Wittler Patriquin, I have been a target for thieves, burglars, after midnight kidnappers, abusers, torturers, criminals, murder-for-hire, and repeated sex offenders who have abused me during my sleep in the Master Bedroom of our Lombard home in the Village of Lombard, in District 5, York Township, DuPage County, Illinois 60148-3028 USA.

One year, Nathan Scott Wittler Patriquin purchased a Japanese Samurai Sword and Ninja training handbooks by mail order, after I lost my Japanese I Language Handbook and Workbook in the Village of Lombard near Saint Pius X Catholic Church and School by the Illinois Secretary of State Motor Vehicles License Facility and one block north from the Westmore Elementary School. Nathan S. Wittler worked with the Japanese interpreter Mrs. Masako Berman at GESA Premier Assistance, as well as other Japanese-speaking staff employees.

When I was a Graduate Assistant at the University of Illinois at Chicago from 1983 through 1985, the Communications and Theatre Department was managed by Chairperson Anthony “Tony” Graham-White Ph.D., a British theatre director, playwright, and poet who was a friend of Asians and Pacific-Americans, especially the Chinese in the Chicagoland area and Chinatown. Tony Graham-White recommended me for the Abraham Lincoln Fellowship at the University of Illinois at Chicago for the Department of Communications and Theatre near Halsted Street, Taylor Street, and the Little Italy neighborhood around Maxwell Street by the UIC Campus Circle Interchange. Then I registered for a full UIC Graduate Studies curriculum which included courses in Japanese I and Portuguese I, among other required Theatre and Drama courses, Voice Development, Rhetoric taken with Dr. Alfred Jones Ph.D. and another professor who taught Public Speaking and Rhetorical Criticism from the University of Wisconsin. In addition, I enrolled in Cross-Cultural studies involving Psycholinguistics and Ethnography with Thomas Kochman Ph.D. who is known for writing about “Black and White Styles in Conflict”. As a Graduate Assistant at the University of Illinois Chicago Circle Campus, I purchased all my required textbooks and kept these books when I became a Lombard resident homeowner at 502 S. Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard in District 5, York Township, DuPage County, Illinois USA.

However, the Japanese I Handbook and Workbook from the UIC Japanese female instructor was stolen while I lived in the Village of Lombard as a resident homeowner and taxpayer. Obviously, the Lombard home intruders, burglars, and thieves had a special interest in my Japanese I Language Books, enough to steal them while I was working all day and evenings when Nathan S. Wittler opened the door when I was away from home during the course of employment at Berlitz School of Languages, Inlingua, Arroyave School of Languages, the College of DuPage, and other institutions in the Chicagoland area and the state of Illinois.

Not only have I lost my Japanese I Languages Books, but also my personal lifestyle and family members which included my Father, Mr. Roberto Hung, my Mother Mrs. G. Fong Ramos, estranged spouse Nathan S. Wittler Patriquin, and others who do not wish to meet me, talk to me in person, or communicate the reasons behind the complicity in the heinous hate crimes against me personally and my Lombard life as a resident homeowner and taxpayer in District 5, York Township, DuPage County, Illinois USA. As a Lombard resident homeowner and Illinois Victim of Crimes, I am demanding Restitution and Compensation for National Victims of Crimes.

Since I have lived in the Village of Lombard for the last twenty (20) years, my extended family members and friends have become alienated and do not communicate, write letters, or talk with me as they used to do before I lived in DuPage County, IL.

The Village of Lombard Town Hall does not even mail correspondence or call resident homeowners about the issues involving increased Lombard criminal activities in DuPage County and the Chicagoland area for the state of Illinois.


“Roberto Hung’s Vacation To Miami, Florida, and Queens/Flushing, New York in the USA”

In 1993, after Mr. Roberto Hung J.D. purchased Lombard real estate property and moved to the Village of Lombard on September 2, 1993, he developed a thumb infection from a steel metal splinter acquired at work during the 3rd shift for Felt-Products After Market Auto Parts Division. Consequently, Roberto Hung developed a fever and a swollen thumb which was festering and required medical attention; then he was hospitalized with a swollen thumb infection at St. Francis Hospital in Evanston, Illinois USA. I remember driving to visit my Father, Roberto Hung, who was hospitalized as an in-patient at St. Francis Hospital from Lombard in DuPage County to Evanston on the North Shore by Lake Michigan. Since there was no hospital or medical health center in the Village of Lombard, Roberto Hung retained his health care plan at work from the Felt-Products Corporation in Skokie and kept his medical insurance group on the North Shore Clinic near Rogers Park and St. Francis Hospital in Evanston, Illinois USA.

After Roberto Hung’s medical leave and recovery from hospitalization, he went back to work at Felt-Pro in Skokie, Illinois, driving every night from Lombard in DuPage County after midnight and around 2:00 o’clock in the morning twilight to his new Lombard Brick Bungalow Home in District 5, near St. Pius X Catholic Church and School in York Township.

The following year in 1994, during the Spring, my Mother’s youngest sister Xiomara Fong Ramos de Zayas from Santiago de Cuba was invited to visit her and my youngest brother at 342 Harrison near Sunset Knolls Park and Main Street where the Lilac Parade takes place. I picked up my Aunt Xiomara at O’Hare Airport because my youngest brother was working all day at Allstate Insurance Company in Northbrook, Illinois. This family reunion took 23 years to become a special event for all of us and included more relatives who were planning to meet and gather in our new Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow at 502 S. Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard. Aunt Xiomara has a lot of pictures, memorabilia, and photographs of her visit in Lombard during Lilac Time—more than enough good memories to return again during Spring 1998, four years later—(after my Father, Roberto Hung was bedridden, disabled, and unemployed following a home invasion and assault which caused a Traumatic Brain Injury and Aneurysm on December 21-22, 1996).

Later in Spring 1994, Nathan S. Wittler’s parents Reverend Melvin A. Wittler and Mrs. Nancy Wittler Patriquin announced their home visit to the Village of Lombard since they were driving from West Dummerston, Brattleboro in Vermont across the USA on holiday vacation to Hartington, Nebraska to visit Grandmother Wittler and Duane Wittler his brother who lived on the family farm near Lincoln, Nebraska with his sister Virginia and husband George Fox.

When Nathan S. Wittler went on vacation to West Dummerston, Bratteboro in New England to visit the Wittlers at the farm by the West River in South Vermont, I stayed at our Lombard home while I was working in DuPage County and the Chicagoland area in Illinois USA.

Six years before, the Wittlers had met my Father and Uncle Filiberto Hung and his wife Mireya Hung and daughter Ana Mireya Hung Lee during the 1988 wedding at Olive Park by Navy Pier and remembered the Wedding Reception aboard the Star of Chicago along Lake Michigan which was well attended by Nathan S. Wittler’s family including his Grandmother and Uncle Duane Wittler, his Aunt Virginia and husband George Fox, and his brothers Bryan, Kent, youngest sister Heather and her fiancé John Eruren at that time. In addition, Reverend Melvin A. Wittler and Mrs. Nancy Wittler had invited her brother Dr. David Patriquin and Mrs. Cynthia Patriquin and more friends to attend the Wedding Reception and Dinner aboard the Star of Chicago by Lake Michigan during Father’s Day weekend on June 18, 1988. My Mother did not attend my wedding day and refused to be involved in the wedding plans and festivities while she lived with my youngest brother during 1988.

From 1988 through 1996, I was working and lived as a Lombard resident homeowner in DuPage County, Illinois, I was at staying at the Lombard Brick Bungalow while my Father, Roberto Hung was on vacation visiting his family and relatives in Miami, Florida and Flushing, New York.

Afterwards, my Father went on Vacations To Visit His Family Relatives, His Brothers, His Sisters, Nephews and Nieces in Florida and New York. I drove my Father, Roberto Hung to the O’Hare Airport to catch his flights to Miami, Florida, to visit his oldest brother Miguel Hung, his son Miguel Hung-Simons and wife Pamela Hung Maggiano, Daughter Brittany and son Mike Hung with all the family; also travelled to New York La Guardia Airport near Queens, Flushing where my Uncle Filiberto and Aunt Mireya lived with his family, Ana Mireya, Ileana, Santiago and Grandson Rafael Hung. Roberto Hung also visited his youngest sister Caridad “Cei-Chieng” Fong and brother-in-law Joaquin Fong and children, Joaquin Jr. and daughter Teresa Tan with her family.

During his travel vacations, my Father, Roberto Hung, also visited his oldest sister Luz “Leing” Mock and her son Guillermo Mock, his wife Millie and other family relatives.

On the day Roberto Hung was abused and throttled by Respiratory Therapist Ben Aguilar at Vencor Northlake Hospital, June 18, 1998, I called St. John Bosco Church at Northlake to see what happened to my Father as a patient. Afterwards, I drove back to Brust Funeral Home on Main Street in Lombard to arrange for the Autopsy by Shaku Teas M.D., forensic pathologist contracted by John Brust in Lombard, Illinois.

Brust Funeral Home’s manager J. Foreman began to plan Roberto Hung’s Visitation and Funeral Mass at St. Pius X Catholic Church on June 25, 1998–one week after Respiratory Therapist Ben Aguilar had murdered the patient Roberto Hung by shattering the tracheostomy and puncturing his heart early in the morning, around 7:00 a.m. at Vencor Northlake Hospital.

When I returned back to our Lombard home in District 5, I called St. Pius X Catholic Church, one block away to talk to Sister Pauline Schultz, the Franciscan nun who arranges the Funeral Mass for the parishioners in the Diocese of Joliet, Illinois USA. Soprano Jean Ceithaml sang the Ave Maria. The funeral flower arrangements were ordered from Blossoms and left at St. Pius X. In addition, I paid in cash $500 by check to St. Pius X for the Funeral Mass Services on June 25, 2012.

On Roberto Hung’s Funeral Day, very few people from the Village of Lombard attended. No one from the Lombard Town Hall nor the Lombard Police or Fire Department sent any sympathy cards or donations nor any monetary contributions for me or my family as Lombard resident homeowners in bereavement and loss of a family member. None from DuPage County government mailed any sympathy card either for Roberto Hung’s funeral day at St. Pius X Catholic Church in the Village of Lombard, after the Lombard resident homeowner and taxpayer spent all of his Illinois retirement income and funds in DuPage County, York Township, District 5.

The robots.txt file for my cellular mobile phone is getting smarter than it looks… Last Saturday, the Android woke up in a different time zone suddenly after it shut off overnight… Early morning on Saturday, the Android was on a PM mode for night time, instead of 6AM. One hour later, the Android was in another time zone registering 7PM, instead of 7:00 o’clock in the morning. Android was running on a different network independently and refused to connect to the local Wi-Fi available in the morning. I spent two (2) hours figuring out why the Android was in a “twilight zone” on Saturday morning. I could not even use the phone. It shut off by itself. The Android reset itself and refused to make any phone calls. It does not want to work at all, while it is updating its software operating system.

Nowadays, the Android is getting smarter from 4G to 6G. It has a mind of its own… Sometimes, the Android has to be reset to follow the user’s directions, instead of its own… Hey, I did not ask the Android to start dialing phone numbers, I did not touch dial!

Why is the Android in another time zone? The network must have been disconnected, while the Android was shut off overnight.

Sometimes, the Android replaces the users text by another unrelated word, at random, and changes the meaning intended by the user completely. That is not good.

Other times, the humans behind the Android do tamper with data settings and files in the user’s mobile cellular telephone Android account.

Why is my Contacts file middle initial changed by a human?

Who is misspelling tag words in the Photos Gallery?

Android can be wiretapped, intercepted, and controlled also by external mobile cyber devices. Why did the Android freeze on the screen mode? Start wondering why the Android is monitored by Global Positioning Systems (GPS) via satellites for location.

Not everyone wants to have a Smart Phone! Some people do not want the Android mobile cellular phone to be smarter than they are… Nor do they want to be tracked down by the Android or any other digital devices.

The Android Smart Phone has come of age from 3G to 4G to 6G and 8G plus… as time goes by the 21st century.

Faster, Smarter, More Diligent Android Devices Use High Technology Broadband Cable Networks Requiring Infrastructure Renewal of the Old Cable Wiring Systems Existing From The 1900’s.

Android by any other name is simply an automated mechanical robot.
