It took a tragedy to bring the Sherrard High School class of 2004 back together. Now, they say, it will unite them for years to come.

Dozens of former Sherrard High School classmates, many of whom hadn\u2019t seen each other since their graduation day 14 years earlier, got together last month to attend the visitation services for one of their own, Matthew Phelps and his son, Kash.

On the same night, the classmates came up with a plan to remember Phelps and support his daughter, Khloe.

Phelps, 31, and his 4-year-old son were killed on Jan. 21 in a fire at their home off of U.S. 67 in Preemption, Illinois. Rock Island County Coroner Brian Gustafson said the father and son died of smoke inhalation inside the house, according to a Jan. 24 story in the Quad-City Times.

On the night of the fire, 9-year-old Khloe Phelps was staying with her mother, who lives in Decatur.

In the following days, word spread about the fire via text messages and Facebook posts and eventually reached much of Phelps\u2019 small high school class, including Reshea Lawson.

\u201cIt was heart-wrenching,\u201d Lawson said. \u201cI don\u2019t know if it can be put into words. It\u2019s heartbreaking.\u201d

After hearing the news, Lawson said she had \u201cthis overwhelming feeling to see everybody and be together.\u201d

She wasn\u2019t alone.

After the visitation for the father and son in Rock Island, a large group from the 2004 high school class, made up of about 150 people, met for drinks at a nearby bar. They laughed, cried and shared stories about Phelps, who Lawson described as someone who was down-to-earth, always smiling and \"loved his friends and family hard.\"

\u201cWe had literally not seen each other in 14 years and we just picked up where we left off,\u201d she said. \u201cThere were people who may have not spoken to each other at all in high school talking like they were best friends. It was pretty amazing and heartfelt.\u201d

They also shared a willingness to help Phelps' daughter.\u00a0

\u201cWe wanted to do something for Khloe in Matt\u2019s remembrance,\u201d Lawson said. \u201cWe all felt like, \u2018This was my classmate and he\u2019s like family to us.'\"

On Saturday, the classmates are hosting a benefit for Khloe at the Circa \u201821 Speakeasy in downtown Rock Island.

Joshua Kahn, who also graduated from the class of 2004 and frequently performs at The Speakeasy, will host the \u201cStand Up for Khloe Fundraiser,\u201d which will feature sets from six area stand-up comedians. There also will be a silent auction with a number of different items donated by local businesses.

Proceeds from the benefit will go toward a college education fund set up for Khloe. Lawson said they plan to hold a fundraiser each year until Khloe turns 18.

\"We've already talked about getting together and doing this every year for Matt,\" she said. \"We want to honor him.\"\u00a0

Brett Hitchcock, Circa \u201821 and Speakeasy director of audience development, said offering the Speakeasy space was a \u201cno brainer.\u201d

Hitchcock, who also is a graduate of Sherrard High School, said he wanted to support his \u201chome area.\u201d

\u201cIt\u2019s a tight-knit community,\u201d he said. \u201cWhen someone is in need, everyone comes together.\u201d

Lawson has seen that first-hand.

The day after the visitation, Lawson said a classmate created a Facebook group to share updates about the fundraiser for Khloe and reach others from the class of 2004 who have moved away from the Quad-Cities.

\u201cWe have someone who lives 500 miles away now,\u201d she said. \u201cAnd they said, \u2018We can\u2019t be there, but we\u2019re mailing you a check.\u2019\u201d

As soon as she walked in to the downtown Davenport music venue, Juniper Rose\u2019s eyes locked onto the stage.

Her little legs explored the room as she nodded along to the house music and offered a handshake to band members waiting to play or people waiting for their drinks at the bar. When she approached the steps to the stage, though, her mother, Jaclyn Lindaas, scooped her up.

Juniper, who went to her first concert a month after she was born, wanted to be as close as possible to the music.

About three tunes into Adam Torres\u2019 set on Tuesday at the Triple Crown Whiskey Bar & Raccoon Motel, the singer/songwriter from Austin, Texas, gave Juniper the go-ahead.

\u201cThis next song goes out to a very special lady who is here tonight,\u201d Torres said. \u201cAnd if she wants to come on stage, she is welcome to.\u201d

With that, 18-month old Juniper, wobbled onto the stage and danced during the slow song, which her mother had first heard live back in the summer of 2016 when she was seven months pregnant.

The song\u2019s name? \u201cJuniper Arms.\u201d

Finding a community\u00a0

Lindaas says it\u2019s no accident that her daughter enjoys music so much.

The Wisconsin native moved to the Quad-Cities four years ago with a trash bag full of clothes and a mission to be part of the Quad-City\u2019s growing music scene. She went to shows at Rozz-Tox and did some marketing for Daytrotter, the music website and recording studio.

\u201cThat\u2019s how I made all my friends and found a community,\u201d Lindaas, 30, said. \u201cHere, music is literally everywhere and nonstop and at your fingerprints. It feels like family. Even if I go to a show and I don\u2019t know anyone, I feel like I\u2019m home.\u201d

When Lindaas found out she was pregnant, she continued to attend multiple shows per week in part because she thought, \u201cIn a few months, I\u2019m not going to be able to do this anytime I want.\u201d

Facing single parenthood, Lindaas also wanted to be around her adopted family.

\u201cIt was a pretty scary time,\u201d she said. \u201cI wasn\u2019t afraid to be a parent. I was afraid of the timing. I was afraid of feeling alone and being alone and ending up raising my child all alone. Rather than just being pregnant and feeling that way, I could be around people and laugh and sing and feel like I was part of something.\u201d

In the meantime, she ended up giving her daughter a head-start in joining the same community.\u00a0

Lindaas even went to a show two days before Juniper was born on Aug. 10, 2016. She ended up having to leave that concert at the Village Theatre early, though, because she was just hours away from going into labor.

\u201cShe probably heard more artists in the womb than anyone else,\u201d Lindaas said. \u201cI wanted her to have that experience.\u201d

During a June 2016, show at Daytrotter, Torres, one of Lindaas\u2019 favorite musicians, played \u201cJuniper Arms,\u201d a new song of his at the time, and Lindaas started crying. She had already considered the name Juniper and the song confirmed it.\u00a0

\u201cThat song just really hit me,\u201d Lindaas said. \u201cSomething happened where I was like, this is her.\u201d

A few months later, Torres sent a signed copy of his album to Juniper. It hangs in her bedroom.\u00a0

Q-C famous

Just a few days before she turned 1-month old, Juniper experienced her first music festival. Lindaas brought her daughter along to the inaugural GARP fest at Codfish Hollow in Maquoketa.

Lindaas noticed right away that her daughter\u2019s \u201ceyes light up\u201d at the sound of live music. She also noticed that Juniper tends to grab the attention of others in the crowd as well as musicians on stage.\u00a0

As Lindass said, in a room full of adults, \u201cJuniper stands out easily.\u201d

Together, they attend a few shows per month and Lindaas said her friends, as well as strangers, have embraced Juniper, who now confidently walks around venues, waving \u201chello\u201d to new people.

\u201cIt\u2019s clear when you see her interacting in these places that she is not afraid,\u201d Lindaas said. \u201cShe\u2019s in it completely.\u201d

As a result, the 18-month-old has been called \u201cQuad-City famous\u201d on a few occasions.

\"Juniper\"

Juniper Rose, who is 18 months old, shares the stage with Adam Torres, a musician from Austin, Texas, during his set on Tuesday at the Triple Crown Whiskey Bar & Raccoon Motel.

\u201cPeople I don\u2019t even know come up to me, and say, \u2018Oh my gosh, you\u2019re Juniper\u2019s mom,\u201d she said. \u201cThey know her before they know me and I think it\u2019s because there\u2019s really not very many kids her age going to these things. That\u2019s why a lot of people are like, \u2018Look at that tiny person walking around and having fun.\u2019\u201d

Despite her small stature, Juniper, who often wears blue noise-canceling headphones at shows, has a big presence at shows, according to Royce Barnett, who met Lindaas via the music community several years ago.

\u201cThat baby brings so much energy and light,\u201d Barnett, 28, who lives in Muscatine, said. \u201cShe\u2019s alway waving to people and making them smile. She\u2019s appreciating it as much as we are really. She\u2019s having just as much fun.\u201d

When she\u2019s walking around during shows or when Barnett holds Juniper, people around her often take out their phones to get a photo or video.

\u201cShe\u2019s just part of the community now,\u201d he said. \u201cIt\u2019s pure joy.\u201d

And that's what Lindaas hoped for.\u00a0

\u201cIt\u2019s not about me going out for a good time,\u201d she said. \u201cIt\u2019s about showing her that being part of your community is important. Even if I didn\u2019t have to bring her, I would 100 percent still bring her. I love experiencing it with her. It might be different than what I\u2019m used to, but it gives me even more of an appreciation for music and this place.\"\u00a0

'She's totally going to be cooler than me'

In the living room of their Davenport home on a recent afternoon, Lindaas put on a Mac Demarco record while Juniper scribbled on a piece of notebook paper and played with a mini ukulele.

On lazy days together, Juniper would rather listen to music, anything from Fleetwood Mac to Chance the Rapper, than watch TV. As her mom cooks dinner, Juniper sometimes picks up the rhythm from the kitchen and dances along.

\u201cMusic is just her thing. She could be super upset and you could play the right song, and her mood changes,\u201d Lindaas said. \u201cIt calms her down.\u201d

During hectic moments, it calms this single mother down, too.

\"I guess she gets that from me,\" Lindaas said.\u00a0

When she's older, Lindaas can see her daughter playing a bunch of instruments and joining a band. No matter what, though, she says they'll always enjoy music together.\u00a0

\u201cIt\u2019s something that we have to bonds us,\u201d she said. \u201cOne day, she\u2019ll be like, \u2018Mom, listen to this band I found.' She's totally going to be cooler than me.\"\u00a0

About 30 minutes into opening day of World Relief Moline's international food pantry, the shelves were already empty.

The food pantry opened at 9 a.m. Monday at the not-for-profit's office at 1852 16th St., Moline, and director Amy Rowell said eight Burmese women were waiting outside the office at 8:45 a.m. In total, more than 100 people were served on Monday.

\"It was our first time doing it and we literally ran out of food,\" Rowell said. \"We had a great turnout.\"

The turnout tells Rowell this: \"There's a\u00a0need for this.\"\u00a0

World Relief Moline supports refugees and immigrants in the Quad-City area, who are primarily from Burma and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rowell said. She said many of the families they serve have previously had trouble finding food items at other food pantries.

\"There's a lot of great food pantries around the Quad-Cities for people to get access to food,\" she said. \"We've always known with refugees that that kind of food isn't what they're used to eating or they don't know how to prepare it.\"

World Relief launched the food pantry, which will be open twice per month, thanks to funds from the Project of the Quad-Cities and partnerships with area Asian and African grocery stores.

Rowell said World Relief staff will stock the food pantry with more items when it opens next at 9 a.m. Monday, March 12 and 26.

\"We really want families who just need a little extra help to come in,\" Rowell said. \"Maybe they're employed, but they're just barely making it. We want to help them find food that is familiar to them and healthy.\"\u00a0

World Relief is looking for volunteers and donations for the food pantry. To contact World Relief Moline, call 309-764-2279 or visit worldreliefmoline.org.

Inside the bright blue Mexican cafe and underneath the pink \u201cOrder here\u201d sign, a black-and-white photo might catch one's eye.

It shows there\u2019s a history behind this cafe, which opened last month on 4th Avenue in Moline.

The photo, which is labeled Veracruz, Mexico, shows a restaurant with the same name\u00a0\u2014 the original Coya\u2019s\u00a0\u2014 and a woman, who went by Coya, standing in front of the eatery. To the left of the woman, if one squints a little, a baby is visible.

\u201cAnd that\u2019s me,\u201d says Blanca Moran, pointing to the photo.

Moran, 43, keeps the photo near the front counter to remember her mother, Cordelia \"Coya\" Limon Alor, and remember why she opened this cafe.

When the small building at 4320 4th Ave, Moline, became available, owner Nirmal Singh thought of Moran.

\u201cHe knew me and how I cooked,\u201d Moran, who owns a Moline-based tax services business, said. \u201cAt first, I told him no. I didn\u2019t want to do a restaurant. I thought, \u2018That\u2019s my past.\u2019\u201d

Singh, who also owns the neighboring JNJ Food & Liquor, said he knew a restaurant by Moran would be a \u201cgood fit\u201d for the vacant spot. So, he kept calling her.

Before saying \u201cno\u201d again, Moran thought about her mother. She thought about her mother having to give up her restaurants, including Coya\u2019s, when the family moved from Mexico to Moline in 1979 because her father got a job at Deere and Co. Moran was 3 years old at the time.

Moran\u2019s mother, who later was a single parent, worked in kitchens at area Mexican eateries and the money she earned went toward putting her two kids through college. Her mom also teamed up with her cousin, Angel Moran, to open a tiny restaurant on 4th Avenue in 1993. They called it Jalape\u00f1o\u2019s, making it the first in the popular Quad-City franchise.

\u201cMy mom did everything for me,\u201d Moran said. \u201cI\u2019ve been a single mom, too, and it\u2019s hard. My mom never complained. She always found a way to provide for us.\u201d

Moran decided she wanted to honor her mother, who passed away two years ago, by opening an authentic Mexican-style cafe and naming it after her.

\u201cI didn\u2019t want to name it after a pepper or a place in Mexico,\u201d she said. \u201cI wanted the name to have meaning.\u201d

She opened Coya\u2019s Cafe on Jan. 20 at\u00a0\u2014 here\u2019s the kicker\u00a0\u2014 the same spot as the original Jalape\u00f1o\u2019s, where her mother had served customers 25 years year earlier.

Moran says her cafe is a not just another Mexican restaurant.

\u201cIt\u2019s a different concept,\u201d she said. \u201cYou\u2019re not just going to get hard shelled tacos and enchiladas. It\u2019s more authentic and there are more options.\u201d

Her menu offers a selection of \u201cstreet food\u201d and Mexican-style breakfast and coffees that she often sees being sold at stands and markets during her yearly visits to Mexico.

In the morning, Coya\u2019s offers fresh-squeezed orange juice and smoothies and coffee brewed with beans from Chiapas, Mexico.

Food options include chilaquiles, breakfast burritos and tortas (as well as burritos and tortas for lunch and dinner), homemade soups, Mexi-yogurt, corn or flour quesadillas, and, yes, tacos. There also are freshly-made pieces of flan and cake and bowls of pudding for dessert.

\u201cIt\u2019s more like what your grandmother in Mexico would cook for you,\u201d she said.

Coya\u2019s Cafe, which is decorated with items she picked up on a recent trip to Mexico, is modeled after fonditas, which are cozy, family-run diners or cafes, common in Moran\u2019s hometown of Puebla.

\u201cI wanted to bring a taste of Mexico here,\u201d she said. \u201cIt\u2019s not a big restaurant. It\u2019s meant to be homey.\u201d

The cafe, which has a capacity for 40 people and is less than 1,000 square feet, certainly has the feel of family.

Her husband, Alvaro, helped remodel the building, which hadn\u2019t served as a restaurant in 15 years.

Moran\u2019s 11-year-old son, Pablo, helped created a list of Mexican frappes, or iced coffees, with flavors such as cajeta, the Spanish word for caramel, and bombon, the Spanish word for marshmallow. There\u2019s also a frappe made with Gansitos, the Mexican snack cake similar to a Twinkie.

On a recent morning, her daughter Daisy, who is 21, stopped by for breakfast before heading back to school at University of Illinois.

And then, there\u2019s Moran, who says she is trying to follow in her mother\u2019s footsteps. You could also count the steps of her grandmother, who owned a restaurant in Mexico called Las Tres Mar\u00eda\u2019s. Many of Moran\u2019s recipes are passed down from both of them.

\u201cMy mom taught me everything I know about cooking,\u201d she said. \u201cHer thing wasn\u2019t so much making money. It made her happy when people liked her food.\u201d

As it turns out, that\u2019s what makes Moran happy, too.

\u201cPeople have come here because they know my mom and myself,\u201d she said. \u201cAnd they notice I\u2019m selling things that they can\u2019t find anywhere else.\u201d

After nearly a month in business, Moran is glad she listened to her mother, for all those years, when she said, \"Never give up.\"\u00a0

\u201cI always tell my kids that, too. Anything you want in life, just go for it,\u201d she said. \u201cIf I tell them that, I should do that, too.\u201d
