Gloria – I was saddened to hear of your Father’s passing. Your admiration and love for him always inspired me. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Phillip- your devotion to your Dad was profound. He was truly blessed to have you in his life. I don’t think a father could ask for a better son and I pray you take comfort in knowing you served him well. May God’s light shine upon you both and fill your saddened hearts with His blessed assurance of eternal life for those who followed him during their stay here on earth.

Dear Family,
Your husband and father was such an amazing man. Seeing him at Mass every Sunday and watching him walk up the aisle to receive Holy Communion was an inspiration to us. May he rest in peace.
Our condolences,
Chris and Jan Mostowy
