Over the last few months our family has had to endure the loss of two parents/grandparents, and we would like to thank our friends and family for the guidance and support they have given. In their lifetime our parents gave us the gift of family and the realization that family doesn’t have to be blood: Kevin and Kim; Dave and Michelle; Trish; Erl; Mona; Rich and Beth; Stephen; Josh; Jay; Wayne; Pete; Sheila; John; May; Nancy; Barbara; Gus and Paula. The loss we all endured has only strengthened the friendships our parents have left us.
The family will have a modified Irish/Polish/Italian wake in memory of Robert & MaryAnn Olzacki at a date to be determined at the Compound.
