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 2, 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.

In the year 2013, the National Crime Victims’ Rights Week takes place from Sunday, April 21st through Saturday, April 27th, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office for Victims of Crimes in order to inspire our communities to observe the Victims of Crimes Act of 1984 (VOCA).

The Victims of Crime Act of 1984 (VOCA) was an attempt by the federal government to help the victims of criminal actions through means other than punishment of the criminal. It created a federal victims-compensation account funded by fines assessed in federal criminal convictions, and it established provisions to assist state programs that compensated the victims of crimes. The compensation system is still in existence, having distributed over $1 billion in funds since it began.

The statute, codified at 42 U.S.C.A. § 10601, was a direct result of a task force set up by the Justice Department under the auspices of President Ronald Reagan called the President’s Task Force on Victims of Crime, the report issued by the task force in 1982 was harshly critical of existing victims-compensation programs. “In many states, program availability is not advertised for fear of depleting available resources or overtaxing a numerically inadequate staff. Victim claims might have to wait months until sufficient fines have been collected or until a new fiscal year begins and the budgetary fund is replenished,” according to the report.

VOCA established the Crime Victim’s Fund, which is supported by all fines that are collected from persons who have been convicted of offenses against the United States, except for fines that are collected through certain environmental statutes and other fines that are specifically designated for certain accounts, such as the Postal Service Fund. The fund also includes special assessments collected for various federal crimes under 18 USC § 3613, the proceeds of forfeited appearance bonds, bail bonds, and collateral collected, any money ordered to be paid into the fund under section 3671(c)(2) of Title 18; and any gifts, bequests, or donations to the fund from private entities or individuals.

The first $10 million from the fund, plus an added amount depending on how much has been deposited in the fund for that fiscal year, goes to child-abuse prevention and treatment programs. After that, such sums as may be necessary are made available for the U.S. Attorneys’ Offices and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to improve services for the benefit of crime victims in the federal criminal justice system, and for a Victim Notification System.

The Office for Victims of Crimes has chosen this year’s theme to be: “New Challenges. New Solutions.” The mission of the OVC’s strategic initiative is called Vision 21: Transforming Victims Services in the 21st century for the new millennium.

According to Joye E. Frost, the Acting Director for the Office for Victims of Crimes, “in spite of all our progress, victims’ rights laws in all 50 states, the Victims of Crime Act of 1984, the Violence Against Women Act of 1994, and the more than 10,000 victim service agencies throughout the United States of America–there are still enduring and emerging challenges for victims of crimes in America.”

About 50 percent of violent crimes are not reported, and only a fraction of victims receive the help they need. There are still ongoing investigations to know and find out more about these victims, how to help them in the best way, and how the victims’ services can be targeted to reach every victim. While adapting to funding cuts, globalization, changing demographics, new types of violent crimes, and the changes (both good and bad) brought by technology. These 21st century new challenges call for bold, new solutions.

The promise and commitment of our Vision 21, will pave the way to the ongoing work with victims during the 2013 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, in order to transform victims’ services in the 21st century–Office for Victims of Crime, Joye E. Frost, Acting Director

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.

I, Gardenia C. Hung-Wittler, did not receive any response or correspondence to my inquiries to the Village of Lombard for cash compensation and restitution as an Illinois Victim of Crime, even when I have mailed letters and correspondence by U.S. mail, electronic mail, facsimile, delivered in person, and appeared in person to petition and demand cash payment compensation and restitution as a Lombard Victim of Crime in the Village of Lombard, County of DuPage, in the State of Illinois, United States of America. To date, I have not received the corresponding response based on recent court orders for payment to the surviving family of Mr. Roberto Hung, Lombard resident homeowner, taxpayer, and U.S. citizen, following the Criminal Disaster Roofing Damages and Losses caused by the Village of Lombard Police and Fire Department. The Village of Lombard has purchased Parcel No. 06-09-315-038 in 2010 and should compensate Gardenia C.

Counsels for the Plaintiff Thomas P. Bayer and Howard C. Jablecki, representing the Village of Lombard , have not been providing all copies of court proceedings or correspondence, due notice for court appearance or any court summons following Civil Procedure in Circuit Court for the Eighteenth Judicial Circuit in Du Page County , Illinois 60187. Even though, PRO SE, Gardenia C. Hung, Lombard resident homeowner, has contacted the Village of Lombard and updated mailing contact information at Post Office Box 1274, Lombard, Illinois 60148, Telephone: 630-201-9055, Email: ghungma@gmail.com or 6302019055@mms.uscc.net. No one from the Village of Lombard telephoned or contacted PRO SE for a court appearance or summons to the Circuit Court of the Eighteenth Judicial Circuit in Wheaton, Du Page County, Illinois. During December 2009, Pro Se called the Law Office of Klein, Thorpe and Jenkins, Ltd., in order to contact Counsels Thomas P. Bayer and Howard C. Jablecki, for copies of the court order and proceedings, and could not leave a message or speak to neither one of the parties involved. Later during the week, I visited the Village of Lombard in person during December 2009, and no one was there to discuss this legal matter either since all the staff had left on holiday leave of absence at the end of the year.

Please note that the Village of Lombard has failed to observe the Illinois Code of Civil Procedure and/or follow standard procedures of law where the Hung Family legal matters are concerned regarding the Estate of Mr. Roberto Hung Supplemental Health Care Trust. I, Gardenia C. Hung, I am complaining and reporting the Village of Lombard legal counsels for Errors and Omissions in the Failure to Provide Due Notice of Motion, Court Summons, and copies of Court Proceedings for a Court Appearance on Thursday, December 10, 2009, at 9:00 AM pending the Plaintiff’s Motion for Order of Default and/or Dismissal and Judgment of Foreclosure and Sale of the Lombard Real Estate Property at 502 S. Westmore Avenue and Washington Blvd. in Du Page County, Illinois 60148 USA.

PRO SE, Gardenia C. Hung, does hereby request an investigation against the Village of Lombard for lack of Civil Procedure involving Errors and Omissions in this legal matter and all other matters regarding the Estate of Mr. Roberto Hung Supplemental Health Care Trust.

Furthermore, there is no legal record listing or notice of summons for the alleged Unknown Heirs and Legatees, and Non-Record Claimants and Unknown Owners listed as Defendants for Case No.2009 CH002760 by Counsels for the Plaintiff Thomas P. Bayer and Howard C. Jablecki from the Law Firm of KLEIN, THORPE AND JENKINS LTD. in Chicago, Illinois.

On Saturday morning, March 6, 2010, PRO SE, received a copy of the Plaintiff’s Notice of Motion for the Entry of an Order Approving the Report of Sale and Distribution of the Lombard Real Estate Property recorded for the Estate of Robert Hung Supplemental Care Trust, et al. The designated court date was scheduled for Wednesday, March 10, 2010 at 9:00 a.m., in Courtroom 2007, before Judge Bonnie M. Wheaton, presiding judge. PRO SE has been reporting that the Plaintiff’s Counsel Howard C. Jablecki has not been providing timely due notice of court dates and summons to Gardenia C. Hung under the Illinois Code of Civil Procedure and subject to Errors and Omissions by the Chicago Law Firm of Klein, Thorpe and Jenkins, Ltd. As a Victim of Hate and Heineous Crimes by the Village of Lombard, PRO SE, Gardenia C. Hung, does hereby request a judicial review and court intervention in this matter.

Afterwards, that same Saturday morning, PRO SE called the Law Office of Steven A. Leahy to make a legal appointment for counsel representation for Monday morning at 150 North Michigan Avenue, Suite 1100 , Chicago , Illinois 60601 , Tel. 312-499-0649. For the record, Mr. Steven A. Leahy did not want to take this legal case and refused to represent this matter for the scheduled Wednesday, March 10, 2010.

Let it be known that the following Chicago attorneys and/or DuPage County counsels do not want to represent this legal matter for the Estate of Mr. Roberto Hung Supplemental Health Care Trust: Mr. Colin Hara, Esq., Law Firm of Matsuda, Eiffert, and Mitchell in Chicago, Prairie State Legal Aid in Carol Stream, Mr. Richard Lucas and Apostolopoulos in Addison, attorneys on Manchester Road near the courthouse, etc. Consequently, Defendant GARDENIA C. HUNG appears as PRO SE to respond in this legal matter.

BACKGROUND

PRO SE, GARDENIA C. HUNG, age 51, is a Lombard resident homeowner, U.S. citizen, representing the subject property, purchased in the name of the late Mr. Roberto Hung, Sr., registered Lombard homeowner for P.I.N. 06-09-315-038-0000, which was legally acquired and recorded in Du Page County, during September 2, 1993 through September 2, 1996 and paid in full at the Maple Park State Bank with cash retirement funds, IRA money markets, and 401K monies accrued in employment savings through profit-sharing invested at Felt-Pro, Inc. auto gasket company, also known today as Federal Mogul Corporation Sealing Systems, located at 7450 North McCormick Boulevard, in Skokie, Illinois 60076-8103. Felt-Pro, Inc.–managed and family-owned by Lewis C. Weinberg, the Lehman Brothers, Mr. Kessler, and others, along with son David Weinberg and daughter, Barbara Kessler. The late Mr. Roberto Hung Sr., was a retired Cuban-Chinese attorney, who worked as Municipal District Attorney in Santiago de Cuba, while he also served as judge for the Municipal District Court of Santiago de Cuba, in Oriente, Cuba. Mr. Roberto Hung was a graduate cum laude from the Law School at the University of La Habana in Cuba. In the State of Illinois, Du Page County, Mr. Roberto Hung became a Lombard resident homeowner, U.S. citizen, who was also a paying member of the Illinois Sheriffs Association and contributed to local, state, and presidential cash fundraisers, to include donations to the Lombard Fire Department and Police Department, and other national charities. On December 22, 1996, he had written a donation checks for the Lombard Fire Department and to his son Robert S. Hung, after paying his household bills, before he became injured at home, 502 S. Westmore Avenue in Lombard, Du Page County, Illinois.
After Roberto Hung paid for the Lombard real estate property, he was abused as a resident homeowner, taxpayer, and U.S. citizen. On December 22, 1996, Mr. Hung was injured at home in Lombard after 9:00 PM, before Christmas Day. Mr. Roberto Hung survived the traumatic brain injury when his eldest daughter GARDENIA C. HUNG provided first responder’s emergency assistance and called 911 in the Village of Lombard. After Mr. Hung recovered from a stroke in 1997, he was throttled and murdered by the respiratory therapist Ben Aguilar at Vencor Northlake Hospital, on June 18, 1998, in Northlake, Cook County, Illinois.
Coincidentally, Felt-Pro, Inc., the automotive gasket sealing magnet, known for a wide-range of worker benefits was also sold in 1998, in the amount of $720 million dollars to Federal Mogul Corporation based in Michigan and nation-wide. Ten years later, Mr. Lewis C. Weinberg died, last Thursday, on October 30, 2008, at his Chicago home in Illinois, at the age of 93 years old.
Since Felt-Pro, Inc. was sold in 1997, Mr. Roberto Hung became abused, injured, and eventually murdered, while holding Lombard real estate property, residency, and homeownership in the County of Du Page.
For the record, the estimated market value of the subject property was $272, 850.00 in 2008, plus the value of family, personal, professional business assets of the Hung Family in Lombard, Du Page County, Illinois. The Lombard Brick Bungalow, built in 1927, was damaged extensively by public use and unauthorized access entries by the Lombard Police Department, the Fire Department, the Village of Lombard, and other intruders during the course of municipal services and operations which caused detrimental disaster, roofing water damages , plumbing flooding and demolition losses. On Wednesday, November 5, 2008, the Lombard Fire Department, instigated by Keith Steiskal, and others, demolished the Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow at 502 S Westmore-Meyers Road in Du Page. Now the Hung Family is petitioning for cash compensation, restitution, and financial remuneration by the Village of Lombard and others who have publicly used the private property owned by the Hung Family in the Estate of Mr. Roberto Hung Supplemental Care Trust.

Please note that Village of Lombard Refused to Issue the Building Permit for the Restoration of the Lombard real estate property at 502 S. Westmore-Meyers Road in Du Page County due to a water and sewer bill in the amount $118.91, even when there was no water service or sewage service provided during 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008 according to a letter received on October 3, 2008 from Sharon E. Myers, Telephone 630-620-5953, former employee at Village of Lombard , 255 E. Wilson Avenue , Lombard , Illinois 60148-3921 , Fax 630-620-8222.

Furthermore, the following Illinois financial institutions denied financial support for a Home Equity Loan to repair and restore the subject property:

– First American Bank, 1660 Louis Avenue, Elk Grove Village, IL 60007

– Bank of America, 201 North Tryon Street, Charlotte, NC 28255-0001

– Fifth Third Bank, 161 North Clark Street, Chicago, IL 60601

– Associated Bank, 1305 Main Street, Stevens Point, WI 54481

– Zees Group Home Equity Loan Financial for Disaster Restoration

Since the Hung Family has purchased two (2) Lombard homes in Du Page County, all the family members have been victims of crime, abuse, physical injuries, harassments, persecution, to include kidnappings, and forced hospitalizations. The eldest daughter, PRO SE, GARDENIA C. HUNG has been personally harassed by the Village of Lombard and victimized as an access to crime, wrongful charges, false arrest and detention, abuses, personal injuries, and set up for car accidents during the course of employment for the State of Illinois and as a legal interpreter, translator, Illinois Notary Public and Lombard resident homeowner in Du Page County, Illinois.
