~ i! ~ !~ ' i~ : i ii :i~,i'~i~ There was something about each classic tractor making its way along farm fields to the cemetery for the funeral of Caleb Coogan. Caleb was a member of the tractor club, had worked on some of them, and fellow mem- bers were there to honor his memory. "Many a project I had where I needed a hand, and I'd call Caleb," said Don Maxhei- mer, a friend and member of Caleb's tractor dub. "(He was) twelve going on 26, at least." "I never saw an old farmer die and have that kind of a tribute," Don said after the services. "He did it at twelve. I don't know how. I can't explain it. All I know is I feel so fortunate that I got to spend a few years with him." Don added, "He could melt a heart of steel." To the Members of the Mt. Pulaski Community - The J.C. Coogan Family would like to express our sincerest thanks to the organizers and participants in our Caleb's funeral pro- cession on September 12. We can't imagine the enormous effort it took to line the blacktop to the cemetery with machinery, all running and lights blazing. We appreciate the feat in coordinating the tractor escort for the last leg of the trip, and were honored by all the hands over hearts the length of the drive. The outpouring of love and respect was overwhelming at the time, but now seems such a fitting tribute to the many lives this young boy touched during his. And, of course, Caleb would have loved it. For this, we give our heartfelt thanks. J.C. and Joyce Coogan Card of Thanks The Famity of Cateb Coogan We would like to say "Thank You" to all the wonderful people of our community and sur- rounding towns that helped our family during the difficult time after our son unexpectedly passed away. We would like to express our apprecia- tion to all of our relatives, friends, and well- wishers who surrounded us with their love and care during our period of bereavement. We are deeply touched by the numerous calls, texts, visits, prayers, hugs, tears, and words of encouragement. In whatever manner you presented yourselves, we felt loved, and cared for. You made our sorrows less stressful and our burdens lessened. Your acts of kindness and generosity made our tragedy more bear- able, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We feel blessed and privileged to be a part of your circle. I say to God be the glory for great things God has done during Caleb's life here on earth and my prayer is that we keep Caleb forever in our memories. Let me close by paraphrasing a great poet: Lives of great men (loving, caring" kind, respectful, hardworking, quiet, gentle, smil- ing ) all reminds us we can make our lives sublime, and departing, leave behind us foot- prints on the sands of time And so many legacies of Caleb James Coogan that we so cherish and love continue to live in our hearts as we remember and honor him. Caleb James Coogan, we love you but God Almighty loves you best. Rest in Peace. Forever in our memories J.C Joyce & Claire Coogan Mt.
