Remembering a wonderful, gentle, kind, loving uncle who created a beautiful family with his wife of 68 years. I was their flower girl. He took a piece of all of us with him and we keep a piece of him in our hearts.

Howie & Jack Kenney. Our deepest regards go Genevieve, Danny, Mickey, Michele, and their families. Having neighbors like the Pastwa's on our Great block of W. 82nd St., in Little Flower Parish, next to Dawes Park, was Amazing ! The 2 "Jack's" are together now, and that is the true blessing. The memories of us kids playing on the front lawns, (today's world ?), in the streets at night by the light pole, with the dad's by the cars, and the mom's usually talking by Kearney's front porch ! Then Coach Fitz & I teaching and coaching Danny, Mickey, Stevie Ryan, 2 Griffins, & other young boys in the park baseball, then winning the minor age championship! Those are just a few things we never will forget about your Dad & the Pastwa family. Our Best Wishes to all !
