My sincerest sympathies to the entire family. The last few years have been rough but hopefully everyone will find some peace now. If I remember correctly, Ed and I shared a birthday in April-a link that made me think of him often.


Condolence from Georgia Sullivan on July 23rd, 2012 7:52 pm

Mrs. (Wanda) Nowak, Bob, Paula, Justin and Jenah,

I have many fond memories of your husband, dad, father-in-law and grandfather from the days that Justin and Kevin played baseball together. They were always there to watch their grandson and support the whole team. I just read the paper, a little too late to make it to the wake that ended hours ago. I would have been there to speak with you in person if I had known earlier.

I will hold you all in my heart and say a special prayer for Mr. Nowak. My condolences for your loss. I was saddened to read the news.
