I'm deeply saddened to hear of Mrs. Ursida's passing. I'll always remember her kindness, class, and sense of humor -- traits that typify the Ursida family. Indeed, she was a role model for what a mother should be. Although many years have passed since Gene, Sean, and I grew up together in West Mayfield, this news is so difficult to accept and process. My heart is so heavy for you, Bubs, Gene, Sean, and your entire family. God Bless you all, and I'm praying for you. Psalm 147:3
Joe, my deepest sympathy to you and your family on the loss of Mary Colleen. I don't know is you knew it or not but MC and I met at Mt. Gallitzin in 9th grade. We became fast friends. I saw her at your 50th Reunion when Pat and I attended. Mary and I spoke but I didn't see her the remainder of the evening. I really feel bad about her sickness and passing, God Bless you as you go on without her. I'm sure she's watching over all of you.
Our sincere sympathy to your family. (Paul is the son of Paul Horinka Sr who was married to Stella and lived on 37th St. Ext,)
