When a person dies, their life becomes their legacy. My Uncle Stosh was a man of honor, integrity, and kindness to everyone. When we sat together to talk, our conversation always returned to his wife, my aunt, his children, and extended family. His war stories were so vivid, I could visualize the scenarios. Never at any time did he ever have a discouraging word against anyone. This to me is what made him so unique. He once said to me, "Baby doll, unless you have walked in that person's shoes, you won't be able to understand them. " I will miss his wisdom, stories, endearing smile, but most of all, I will miss my Uncle Stosh.

Love you always,

The Molls, Dave, Gail, David, Tim, and Cathy
