    Just learned M/Sgt. Eugene Wojtczak was promoted to an Angel in Heaven. My dad, the late Ret. Major Neal C. Ryan, said nothing but nice things about his friend Sgt. Wojtczak. Thank goodness for your website. When I received his Christmas card back from the post office I decided to search the internet. Where can I send my condolences?

    Thank you in advance.
