HAPPY BIRTHDAY, RICHARD. Born on Groundhogs Day, you always thought your winter predictions about the groundhog were sacred. You always had some ridiculous and funny story to prove your point. I always ended our conversations with a smile in my heart even though I knew we had 6 more weeks of Winter. How I wish I could talk to you today. I know you would make me laugh and forget about all this snow....for awhile, at least.
Always in my heart,
Your Sis, Barbara

Cousin MoMo, From those early days in Stiglitz Park, the Murzyn and Roman families have remained close. Auntie "Flip", your Mother and Auntie
Mary, our Mother, sisters, were always lovingly there for us. This is es-
pecially true of you and Auntie Flip, yours was a unique mother and son
relationship. Now you go to join them, say Hi for all of us who remain. For
shortly, by the grace of God, we will be with you. It will be a great family
reunion. Rest in Peace Moe. My condolences to you, Shirley
Cousin Ramon Turk Roman [Lakeland, Fl.]

To Shirley and Family, My heartfelt sympathy on the passing of Moe. Years ago I would come out to the 'ranch' with my kids to see the animals and spend time with their Auntie Barb. We have just made a CD of all the old pictures we had from out at the 'ranch'. May God be with you and hope all is well.
