Hi Angela Thank you for the kind words about Dad. He was an awesome Dad / person. He liked the girls at St Paul’s and guys. He did always say That girl takes good care of me. I knew who he meant. You are a very sweet person. Thank you so much for being there for Dad. It is rough right now but it will get better. Kathy and The Family of Mitchell W Mezyk Sr
