I would like to express my love, condolences and sympathy to my Aunt Virge's immediate family regarding her passing. I was always welcome in Aunt Virge's home, and I am especially grateful for the couple of days I spent at her place this past July during my visit with her and other family members around the Chicago area.

She and her late husband, my Uncle Vic, left a great legacy to this world. Wonderful children and grandchildren will carry on their family name in a way that will make them both, as angels in heaven, feel proud. This is a sad and rough time for all of us right now but, hopefully, we can reach a point in our bereavement period where we can look back at the memories and smile at the antics and sense of humor of this fantastic lady.

God bless you all ...

She was a wonderful person. I always enjoyed her company. She always made me laugh.

Dear Grandma,
Even though you are gone you will continue to inspire me to exercise (I still can't touch my toes like you could at 90), cook, keep a clean house, be strong and independent, travel, enjoy life and a shot every now and then, and never forget my Polish side. I will miss our visits and our "dates". I'll think of you when I see Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, Dancing with the Stars, and American Ninja Warrior - that one always makes me chuckle. You finally got what you've been asking for the past 4-5 years and I'm glad you're in a better place. I will miss you dearly.

Nicholas Magero
