Our condolences to the Ezop and Nowicki Families! KNew them well......in my early years my family lived just down the block from the Ezops. Then in my high school days I met Rita at Holy Rosary High School. Wonderful couple! You are all in our prayers.
From Tony and Barbara Krawczak, formerly of Saginaw now residing in California.

Dear Amy, Nick and Rita's extended family,

My heart goes out to you as you grieve the loss of Rita so soon after John's passing.
I wish I could be there to offer my condolences in person.

I have so many fond memories of John and Rita. They were such a devoted couple.
They used to come to Marywood even after Sister Wanda's passing to visit us
and to visit Sister Wanda's grave.

When Rita was able, she was such a wonderful care giver for John.
I shall miss both of them, even though recently my visits were limited. May you take solace
in knowing that they are together now and free from the suffering of these past years.

My prayers and deepest sympathy for each of you.

Peace and love,
Sister Rosemary O'Donnell
