Thank you Uncle Dane for the many, many wonderful memories from the first time I met you at the Szczygiel's house on East Burliegh when you were dating my Aunt Irene ... to the house on Shepard Ave. where as children we performed songs for our relatives in the foyer .... and ... through the years in Appleton where you raised your family. Rest in Peace!
