Bartosiak, Anthony

In April of last year Tony was on the 50th Honor Flight. It was an amazing experience him and his family. He had even commented that it was one of the most memorable experiences of his life. Prior to his passing, he had requested that any donations made in his memory be donated to Stars and Stripes. It was his hope that he could give that same opportunity to another deserving veteran so that they may experience the Honor Flight.

This is a tribute to my father, Jesse Miller who was on your May 16, 2015 honor flight. This flight was all he talked about for weeks, that this organization would do this for so many Veterans. It gave him a new sense of patriotism for your country. Unfortunately he passed away on September 21, 2015 of lung cancers. I was lucky enough to be his Guardian on this flight. I was also inspired by what this trip meant to all the other Veteran and my Father. So to keep this mission going for all the Veteran that will be taking future flights I’m sending this yearly donation in my fathers name. Merry Christmas to your entire staff and Thank You for what do.

Titze, Ray

On July 4th 1939, during Lou Gehrig Appreciation Day at Yankee Stadium in New York, Lou Gehrig had this to say about his recent diagnosis of ALS. "“For the past two weeks you have been reading about a bad break. Yet today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth.” Uncle Ray, we are some of the luckiest people on the face of the earth because you were part of our lives. You always made us smile and laugh with your stories and jokes. Even if it was 15th time we heard them. I always loved watching Aunt Sue’s face when you would tell one of your famous jokes or stories. It was priceless! It was like she heard it before. You will certainly be missed!
