Jesus Christ, my Lord & Savior. No matter how tough a day may seem or no matter how many obstacles I may have to jump past; a line of Prayers always seemed to reassure me that things will improve ,helped me catch a second wind, or just have a little bit more patience that things will all work out.

Evelyn Carley - close family friends, and when my Mom passed away in 1969 it tore Evelyn apart. In the absence of my Mom Evelyn was always like a Mother to me in every sense of the word. Rarely a day goes by when I don't think of her. I was always the first to call and wish her a Happy Birthday no matter where in the world I was. She made this fact well known, especially to whoever called her 2nd, 3rd, 4th and so on (lol)

Clyde & Sugar Finger - Former Bethel Fire Dept Chief and VERY good family friends. Whenever I think of great family structure one of the first family names I come up with are the Finger's.

He was the first President I took an interest in. First one I could read about. First President who seemed full of energy ready to take on the future. I liked what I saw. His quotes were from the heart and very real; not just something he wrote down to make himself popular. He had flaws like anyone but the manner in which he handled the Cuban Missile Crisis made it obvious his flaws weren't within the scope of doing his job as President of the United States.

My Uncle John Stankaitis who also did a 30 year career in the Navy in the Medical Service Corps. He was and remains the most unassuming man I have ever met. I'd like to think that I picked up the characteristic trait of humility and honesty from him and my Dad. He passed away this year at the age of 96 years old. I miss him tremendously.

My older sister Pat. She was always a steadfast resource I could go to no matter what my problems were. Even when I cast her aside when alcohol and PTSD had a death grip on me she was always there with love (tough love most of the time), compassion. Whatever the case she was always there to reassure me that I'd get through it. It wasn't til I was in my late 40's when I realized how great a sister I had. And yes I have let her know this.

Grandmother (Nanny) Veronica (Kaminskas) Koslosky Born: 22 March 1897 Died: 17 April 1988 Born and raised in Lithuania not coming to the United States til 1913 when she arrived in Bridgeport, CT She was one of the strongest, courageous & kindest souls I have known throughout my life. She definitely taught me the meaning of being fair and why integrity is so important in life. Not a day goes by when I don't think of her.

Mom & Dad Victoria B. (Kaminskas) Stankaitis Died: 6 APR 1969 Peter J. Stankaitis Died 10 MARCH 1992 To say I had loving, caring and kind parents wouldn't even be touching the tip of the iceberg. I never "SAW" them fight or argue but on the flip side of the coin I always saw them working; sometimes 16-20 hours a day so that my sister and I would always have what we needed. Mom had a 10th grade education and my Dad an 8th Grade, but I couldn't have asked for anything more for a Mom…
