This page is dedicated to my terrific two grandsons, Tyler James and Ryan Andrew LUTZEN. The boys at Mt. Charleston in Nevada in 2007 pictured above. It's amazing what you can learn from your past and help the future. ENJOY!!
Jerry Andrew LUTZEN was born on March 5, 1977 in Waukegan, IL to Deborah Elaine WARNER and Joseph Andrew LUTZEN. He married Heather on Aug 7, 1999. Tyler James LUTZEN was born on May 12, 1999 at 1:25 PM in Waukegan, IL at St. Therese Hospital. Ryan Andrew LUTZEN was born on Nov 19, 2003 at 1:59 PM at Lake Forest Hospital, Lake Forest, IL.
Below is one of many pictures that is my favorite's of Jerry and Heather together at a friend's wedding on October 9, 2005 in Kenosha, WI. They fell in love in Park City, IL. in late July 1998. They starting emailing each other and one thing lead to another and before long they were a couple. They shared their lives with two adorable sons and I was fortunate enough to see Tyler, the first born, being delivered in Waukegan, IL at St. Therese Hospital. There are three generations born at that hospital, first me in 1950, then Heather in 1979 and then Tyler in 1999. People move around but the circle seems to make it complete in the end. From here, I hope to be able to show you their history in pictures taken from the past 10 years and then hopefully keep adding to this.
This is the beginning of Tyler James Lutzen..his first Christmas and second one with Grandpa Larry in Lake Villa, IL.

Just a day at the Lake Michigan with Tyler and dad having a moment together. This was one of the photos that Heather loved and thought it was just a perfect casual day for both of her men.
Then 2007 comes upon us as we are living in Las Vegas. That's Ty in front of the Bellagio and then the family day at Mt. Charleston. Below is the in front of the Bellagio and then on a skating trip for school with and the Balloon Fest at the Las Vegas Speedway in January 2008. The picture at the balloon fest was one of the last pictures I have of Heather before she passed away.
Then along came Ryan Andrew Lutzen.....at Lake Forest Hospital the day he was born with Grandma Anita, at home in bed sharing a moment with mom, and finally a peaceful moment of slumber.
