Tony Chamberlain

It’s hard for me to write this but, immediately after posting the previous update, I checked the Caringbridge website and saw this:

“To all who knew and loved Tony:

The end has come. Our family made the difficult decision this evening to cease the aggressive measures that were supporting Tony’s life systems. Tony, beloved son, brother, cousin and nephew, went to his eternal rest at 9:27 p.m. this evening. Please know that he loved all of you and that his family, friends and his fellow Knights were the most important things in his life. He will be deeply missed.

We ask that you now send your thoughts and prayers with him that he may join his father and grandparents in the warm embrace of the Lord.

We would like to thank all of you, once again, from the bottom of our hearts for all of the loving support we have received. We could not have made it through this trying time without you.

Please check this site again for a final update on arrangements for Tony’s funeral.

All our love,

Charlotte, Matt, Dan and Joanne Chamberlain”

As previously mentioned, Dan Potter replayed his DCI Fieldpass Podcast from after the big reunion a few years ago. I’m listening to it right now, and it features a little section of interview with Tony and a couple of his siblings. Go….Listen…..Never Forget.

Two things…

Two things:

1. The Chamberlain family has been posting frequent updates on Tony’s status at the Caringbridge website:, and you can sign up for free email updates whenever a new item is posted, so if you’d like to do that, or just check up on Tony and send your messages to his family, please visit that website.

2. In the most recent DCI Fieldpass podcast, Dan Potter relives his time with the Knights. You can download and listen to the podcast here:

Just read this in the guestbook, it’s from Joanne (Chamberlain) Krakora.

“I need your prayers. My brother, Tony Chamberlain, who has been a Knight pretty much since he was potty trained, was found unresponsive Friday (May 23) evening. He was airlifted to Peoria’s Methodist Medical Center where he is currently undergoing tests to determine what has caused this situation. He’s had some heart troubles over the past few years, so the doctors are focusing on that now.

I’ve posted a web page to keep everyone up to date on the situation: Until then, I – and my Knight brothers Matt and Dan – greatly appreciate your thoughts and prayers. Please see the web site for updates.

Always a Knight,

So, keep Tony and his family in your thoughts and prayers. I’ll be sure to post anything else that I hear as soon as possible. I also encourage you to take a look at that caringbridge website link too, you can sign up for email updates whenever information is posted there.

More about Photos

Ok, so I’m working on ways of displaying photos on the site in new and better ways. I’m working with a plugin that pulls certain albums from flickr and shows them on the page. To see how it’s going, click here:
Just a little bit of explanation about the page: you can click on the album name to show the photos from the flickr album; clicking on slideshow will pop up a flickr slideshow of the images (nice to just sit back and watch); and the flickr page link takes you to the actual page for the album on flickr. Also, if you are so inclined, feel free to head over to the flickr page, sign in with your flickr or yahoo login, and post comments on the photos (specifically, information about who’s in the photos, where the photos were taken, what was special about the photo, etc.)
