Kevin and Chris,
We are so sorry that “Cousin Mike” has graduated from this life. He was such a sweet man that we his Massachusetts cousins all loved.
The last time we saw him was when he and you, Kevin met me and my twin cousins Joann and Carol (Osinski) Kielb had lunch in Enfield CT several years ago. You and he were on your annual trip to New York to visit your family. My mother, btw was Olga Kapansky Wilson and the twins mother was Mary Kapansky Osinski. Their mother was Anna Russak your grandfather Harry’s sister.
I pray for you strength and peace in dealing with his passing and your futures.
Karen (Wilson) and Mike McCormic

Karen McCormick –

Even though this article is wrong, your condolences are noted and appreciated. I am Christine Russak, daughter of Michael Russak and Marie Martha Curtis Russak. Unfortunately, I have not met any of you (or if I did I apologize as I have forgotten.) I did not make annual trips to New York. I was to attend (meet Kevin and Dad in NY) the one for Dennis’ memorial service however COVID stopped our trip.

I last saw Aunt Olga in Florida for Dad’s 90th birthday. She was an absolute joy. I still remember when she saw my twin and I at Nanny’s funeral. She was shocked and thrilled. It warmed my heart every time I saw her. Unfortunately, that wasn’t often.

God speed to you and yours.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
