Families remember loved ones who died before Cubs win

DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) – Here in the Quad Cities, some Cubs fans didn’t live to see the Northsiders take home the trophy, so Runge Funeral Home held a celebration on Saturday for family members to remember those special Cubs fans who are no longer with us.

Organizers say it’s refreshing to have such a happy event at the funeral home.

“Just an opportunity to reflect and remember loved ones, you know I had grandparents or a grandpa excuse me that was a die hard Cubs fan. For years we did the Cubs and they never won. So, its fun to say ‘Hey Granpda, they won,’ ya know?” said Runge Mortuary General Manager Henry Runge.

A balloon release was held to remember those who have passed. Family members also left Cubs memorabilia at gravestones.
