My condolences. I remember how Stanley was working I our barn and I fell into a pen with a mother pig and babies. I was probably about five at the time. Just in time Stanley was able to reach over the pen and pull me out before that angry Momma could take a bite. I have a scar under my nose where I hit the feeding trough! Glad to hear he had enjoyed some traveling. I remember my mom telling of the dances the Lapinski family had in their barn on 37th st. Lots of polkas.
Dear Lapinski family, So sorry for your loss. The memories came flooding back when I read your Dad's name. So many good times digging, cutting grass etc up at St. Mary's. I shot my first rifle at your farm... and learned to ride there too! I will remember your Dad with a smile telling the story of Fr. Chips sneezing and falling backwards into a "hole". I'm glad he and my Dad are together again... probably complaining that the new guys are digging "all wrong"! Warm prayers of strength for your family. Joe Corcoran
First of all I would like to extend my deepest condolences on the passing of your wife, mother and grandmother. You do not know me but Mary and Joanne were next door neighbors of my grandparents Frank and Matilda Dallas on 6th avenue. My parents Nancy and Frank Pavlinch lived with my grandparents until I was 2. Mary & Joanne took me for rides in my stroller and Mom remained friends after their parents moved to Morado. Mom would take my Grandmother to see Teresa. I remember writing Mom's Christmas cards for her and writing one to Platz . God Bless all of you as you get through this difficult time,
Rest In Peace Uncle Tom, we have many fond memories of you, you were such a character, we will always think of you in laughter,my children loved seeing their "great-uncle" they too will cherish their memories!
