I have very fond memories of your parents. I would occasionally see your Dad at "Pathmark" and he would catch me up on family news...he was very proud of you all. May you find peace in the months and years to come and know you will never really be without your loving parents. God bless.

We send our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Jack & Columbia McGreevey. Our lives have been blessed by having intersected with Jack at St Michael's back in '63 and as class & Archangels 'mates among their children & sightings in Flushing over the years. May your sorrows at their loss be lightened by the knowledge of their passage into His Light hand in hand. Two less wonderful lights here on earth, but two more beacons in heaven to watch over us all. The Gulas family

Deacon Jack personally went to our home and welcomed us when we first arrived to the US in 1996, settling in Flushing. Over the years, he and Columbia took us in as their own family. Deacon Jack and Columbia: You are with our God you so loved and served ever so faithfully. May He grant you eternal rest. You are forever in our hearts -- The Ratovonarivo
