Barbara Wroblewski and John Litwak 2008

John Litwak while he was in town, said he would search for my grandfather's grave. I think he had a few words with Kopecki funeral home. John took Barbara with him.  They found Frank in St Mary Byzantine cemetery a few feet from St Mary's greek Catholic cemetery.
 
The headstone was half sunk in the ground and they managed to pull it up, added a few rocks and dirt. Turns out, the reason Frank was not in St Mary's greek as written on the death certificate was because Rev John Litwak didn't want Frank in the Litwak plots because he didn't go to church or receive the scarments. This was in a letter in Franks funeral folder. I remember the funeral mass was at St Vladmir's.
