Not sure what to say?

Sue, Mike, Sharon, Matt, and Sandy, I am so sorry to learn about your Dad and sorry I missed the service in Syracuse. While I remember him for at times (as Brian said) instilling fear in us I also remember the patience he showed as we were growing up by allowing all the pool games, basketball and basement parties. But what I remember most was meeting your Dad, I think in the early 80's, while I was at a night class at OCC and he filled me in on what all of you were up to. We talked for...

May the light of your Father's love, rest in your heart forever!!!

As you honor "Bugsy" on Saturday, please know our prayers are with the entire Bognaski family.

I served with him in the Air Force in the early 50's and we had some very good times together. There are many good memories.

As you know, Sue, we got together with "Bugsy" a couple of years ago and those memories will linger with our service "shenanigans".

God Bless each of you.

Matt, Sandy, Mike and all the "Bags" clan - so sorry to hear about the loss of your Dad. He was one of the great Rosary Dads, and instilled more than a little Fear of God in many of us - and well deserved. Hope you can all remember the great times during this difficult stretch ... Sounds like a good reason for a party in your basement. We will keep your family in our prayers,

Matthew and Family,

Sorry to hear of your Father's passing. You know how much we all looked up to him. My thoughts are with you.


Very sorry for your loss. Remember the fire house tours like it was yesterday.

Matt, Mike, Sharon & Family, I'm very sorry to learn of your Fathers passing. God Bless!

Dear Matt and Family,
I am so sorry about your Dad. We know through our faith that he is in a wonderful place watching over all of you. Be open to his signs that he is with you. You are all in my prayers. Patti Voltz Bilecki

So sorry for your loss.
