Ciocia Cretia: Having grown up next door, I have so many memories. The one I most remember is in the early 60s. You just bought a brand spanking new blender and asked me to try it out with you. We spent the afternoon making all different kinds of milkshakes. You had to explain to Mom why I couldn’t eat supper.

Our hearts go out to you and your family at this difficult time. Always remember all of the fond memories you have of Lucretia!
Many years ago I worked with Pat at the Herbrand. I fondly recall Pat and John inviting me to their home for Pat’s delicious Polish dishes and further I remember how kind and gracious hosts they were. Pat was a dear friend – she was so proud of her nieces and nephews and of her Polish heritage. Thank you Pat for being such a great friend!
