Sorry to hear about your families loss. My families prayers will be for you husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. I'm sure there are probably thousands of great memories you will all share at Thanksgiving or family get togethers. As my family does of our dad. Hopefully, those memories will calm your sorrows.

Dear Mrs. Makwinski, Steve, Joanne and Judy,
Please accept my deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences. Some of my happiest memories from childhood involve Mr. Makwinski and your family as we cheered on the Sacred Heart basketball team. It seems like just yesterday that we gathered on a Sunday afternoon to host tournaments, laugh together and just have fun. Mr. Makwinski was one of the nicest people I have met in my life. May you all find comfort in knowing your husband and dad touched many lives in a positive way. You are in my prayers. May your hearts find peace. Sincerely, Teri Meade Szallai

I miss you so much Grandpa. I wish I knew that celebrating your 90th birthday would have been the last time I saw you 😔 I would have hugged you ten thousand more times. I love and miss you so much.
