Travis Tassone began writing letters to Chicago Blackhawks player Patrick Kane about a year ago, and wrote several a week.
“He wrote the letters specifically to Patrick Kane, talking about the game of the day and how the performance had been, [saying] I’m sorry you were injured, things like that,” his mom, Vickie Tassone, said.
A fire engulfed and burned through the historic Woman’s Club of Wilmette throughout the day Tuesday, Feb. 17.
At 9:44 that morning, Wilmette Fire Department personnel responded to the blaze, which quickly destroyed the south end’s second floor and the apartment lived in by the club’s caretaker, Mark Loendorf, and his family.
Loendorf was working on the first floor when he heard the smoke alarm and went upstairs to witness flames coming from a bedroom, where he said a space heater was running.
