"Lost love is still love. It takes a different form,that's all. You can't see their smile or bring them food or tousle their hair or move them around a dance floor. But when those senses weaken, another heightens. Memory. Memory becomes your partner. You nurture it. You hold it. You dance with it. Life has to end. Love doesn't."
This came from a book that I read "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" by Mitch Albom who also wrote Tuesdays with Morrie (an excellent book) and this was a saying in there that I wanted to share with everyone.
This is the present and the future of my webpage. I am hoping that when the time comes, one of my grandsons will continue the legacy of our family tree. So, I dedicate this page to Tyler and Ryan Lutzen.
Anita Nadine STEELE, born 9 March 1950 in Waukegan, IL at St. Therese Hospital married Larry Wayne LIVESAY, born 7 May 1947 in Jackson County, IN to Chester LISVESAY and Wilma J. EVANS LIVESAY (both born in Tennessee). Below is me, Anita Livesay with my mom, Betty Marlene Vinke, my husband (ex) Larry Livesay and Heather Joy and just me and then me and my grandson, Tyler James Lutzen.
Anita gave birth to Heather Joy LIVESAY on 14 Oct 1979 at St. Therese Hospital in Waukegan, IL. We lived in Round Lake, IL until my divorce to Larry LIVESAY in Aug. 1994 and then Heather and I moved to Waukegan. She married Jerry Andrew LUTZEN on 7 Aug 1999 and they had two sons, Tyler and Ryan. Heather passed away from sepsis blood poisoning on 8 Feb 2008 while visiting her father in Tennessee. The loss of a child is something no parent should ever have to go through, but with the faith of God and Heaven, we will always remember her and have a special spot for her in our hearts.

Life may not be the party we hoped for....but while we are here we might as well dance!
