I got to work with Don on the fire department. He was a quiet hard working firefighter. He was a tremendous loss to the department.
I first met Dan when I was senior at Crestwood and he was on the city council here in Dearborn Heights. I have always known him to be a dedicated public servant. He will be greatly missed.
Mrs. jaworski.....where do I start? From the first day in her 12th grade English Class, I KNEW there was something very special about this lady! As many before me have commented, she always managed to make you feel as if you were her sole focus, and the way she drew you out of yourself was a skill that few have perfected as she did! We had a long, deep conversation about John Knowles "A Separate Peace"; particularly relevant that that point in time because it dealt with the students of an all-boy school during WW!!, and the anxieties they faced about what lay ahead of them after graduation. Viet Nam laid before US, and we were experiencing the same fear of the unknown, because of the draft lottery. Her insights and observations lent a sense of calming relief to the guys in the class, and I was one of them! Am I the only one who thought she beared more than a passing resemblance to Ann Bancroft of "The Graduate"?? The hours (yes, hours!) we spent discussing life and literature and their connection to each other contributed greatly to the person I have become. It's been said that as long as ONE person remembers you, you haven't completely passed on. God bless and keep you, Ann Jaworski!
Keep rocking Wendy. You brightened a lot of lives. See you on the other side.
Very sad to see this... RIP Cindy!
