Barbara A. Cisek

Tom, Joe, Tony and Family, My sincere sympathy to all of the McGrath Family. Phyllis and I had a great friendship through the years. Doing her hair for over 25 years we became very close and I will remember the good times, the stories we shared (happy and sad), most of all the sadness she felt when Joe died. She always had a special place in my heart and will be missed.Her family was always so important to her. Love, Barbara Cisek and Family
