My heartfelt sympathy to my dear sister's children and their families on the loss of their mother and grandmother. Although her passing was not unexpected it is still greatly felt. Her passing, though a loss to us, will be a joyous reunion with her mother and father and husband Bill who will welcome her home with open arms. Her earthly journey now completed has earned her eternal life of peace and happiness with our Lord and Savior. Rest in peace my dear sister, your loving brother, Michael R. Mazak Sr.
