Judge Shoenthal wa a very great man. He was my attorney 23yrs ago and meet him again in juvenile court with my son 8yrs ago. It was alway a pleasure seeing this him. I feel a little more safe with him whom I consider an God sent angle.?

My son and I was having bad problems he is 14. When the police picked him up and took him to Dekalb we got Judge Shoenthal. He was very kind but firm about my son doing well and becoming a better person to me and at school. He wanted him to be better to himself..not to be short changed in life. It breaks my heart to know such a good man is gone. I was standing outside of his courtroom with my son there was mother who was sure her child would not be coming out with her. She was preparing her son for the worst..but they came out together she yelled to me he gave him another chance. He never wanted the kids to go to YDC....he say you dont belong there. I was so happy to be going back with such good news about my son....he stopped skipping school.....leaving the house w/o permission...fighting..smoking weed OMG. I knew he would be so proud to see the change in him. I just found out when they told us we would be going to another Judge it broke my heart that someone so wonderful is gone. We will all miss him greatly. Mrs. Shoenthal to you and your daughters I am so sorry for your loss..and to the whole community of Dekalb Cty.

Dear Fran, Rachel and Rebecca,
I am so blessed to have met you all and to have been Elliott's secretary in Juvenile Court. He never entered the office without a smile on his face. He never stopped helping people. Often times he'd receive calls from previous clients asking for help (not knowing he was a Judge now) and he'd take the time to speak to the ones who were worthy of his personal response or he'd take time to jot down a referral, write an answer to their questions, and have me return the call. Of course, they wanted to hear his gentle voice, but I did the best I could to assure them that he asked me to call for him. When my brother and his fiancée wanted to get married, he was kind enough to perform the ceremony, with Deputy Thomas, Paul, and me as witnesses. When he was sworn in as Juvenile Court Judge, I remember you pulling me to the side and saying, "Elliott is the same and he will not change". You were absolutely correct. He smiled every day and treated everyone with respect. If I had not already retired in June of this year, I am certain I would now. You will be in our prayers. We will cherish the memories forever.
