Words of Gratitude

Theresa & Benny

Dearest Friends Wanda, John, and Keith,

Words cannot adequately express our deep gratitude for having conduced my sisters wake, funeral mass, and internment with such compassion and sincere love and thoughtfulness.

Nobody does such a magnificent job as yourselves.

Thank you immensely and God bless you and your families forever.

Thank you both, so much, for all you did for Mary, John, and me in giving such a beautiful final goodbye with his New York Family and then his transport to his family for burial in his beloved Poland.
