I so looked forward to our, sadly too few, visits. Mr. Szot was excited to share stories while going down memory lane. I felt like I was right in that place with him. He was a kind, sensitive , intelligent, and positive person. I miss him, but oh the memories. Rich Ruppert I also thoroughly enjoyed our visits. Mr. Szot was also interesting but also always interested in our comings and goings. We relived many vacations and events through our talks. I fondly remember how excited he was when I showed up in a Polish Eagle tee-shirt. He thought it was so wonderful that I was proud of my Polish heritage. Thank you for giving our family Mary and for sharing so much of your life with us! I will miss you, dear friend. My heart goes out to the entire Szot family and the community whose lives were so enriched by this kind, loving, gentle man. Love forever, Barb
