  1. Dear Eleanor and Family,

    We were saddened to learn of John’s passing. He was a great man and friend. We still remember all the years he delivered our mail to our country homes. He will surely be missed at the Polish Home functions. With our prayers and sincere sympathy…Joe and Nancy James

  2. Here’s to a blue-ribbon father-in-law. You planted the strong roots of our family tree and tended to us all with quiet faith and support. You always said “yes,” and you always showed up. You have left us with abundant memories of your good work, shared meals, bright music and deep belly laughs. When it comes time for each of us to “go,” I know you will respond, as usual, to that famous question: “Grampa, can you come and get me?” In the meantime, have a sweet nap. You’ve certainly earned it.

  3. He was a wonderful man, who with his wife, raised a wonderful family. I’m so sorry for your loss. But, I have this feeling he left you with so very much.
