The holiday season holds dark days for those who will be missing a family member for the first time this year. Telling a loved one's story makes things a little brighter. It is an Illinois Times tradition to use our last edition of the year – Dec. 26 this year – to remember those local people who have died in the past year. Readers are invited to send us a photo and a brief (200 words) tribute to one they have loved and lost, to be included in our annual "Remembering the lives they lived," edition. Send by email to Deadline is Thursday, Dec. 12. See details on page 18.
