CHICAGO (CBS) — Two full days after Maggie Daley’s funeral, mourners continued to visit condolence books set up in the center of Chicago City Hall, to write words of remembrance and celebration for the Daley Family.
One person wrote, “You’re what family is all about.”
A woman named Carol wrote, “May your spirits be lifted as you remember her spirit.”
Dr. Nancy Jackson wrote, “We loved what you did for drop-out youth.”

At 10 a.m. Wednesday, people were coming by at the rate of about 60 an hour to pen their thoughts in four condolence books laid out on four black covered tables, surrounding a table centerpiece of red, yellow, pink and white tulips, which Maggie Daley loved.
Standing out simply in comparison to the official elegance is a sparse single wreath of pine, draped over velvet crowd control ropes, reading: “In memory of beloved Maggie Daley, 2011.”
