If tears could build a stairway,
and memories a lane,
I would walk right up to Heaven
and bring you back again.

Love you Grandpa!

This memorial website was created by Courtney Zawodny in the memory of her beloved grandfather, Lt. Col. Stanley Zawodny who was born on May 5, 1929 and passed away on December 5, 2009. We will remember him forever.

The angels gathered near your bed , So very close to you ,For they knew the pain and suffering
That you were going through.  I thought about so many things as I held tightly to your hand ,
Oh, how I wished that you were strong , and happy once again.

But your eyes were looking homeward , to that place beyond the sky,
Where Jesus held His outstreched arms,  It was time to say "goodbye" ...

I struggled with my selfish thoughts , for I wanted you to stay .
So we could walk and talk again, like we did-just yesterday .

But Jesus knew the answer, and I knew He loved you so,
So I gave you life's greatest gift , The gift of letting go...

Now my heart will carry memories of the love you gave to me ,
Until we meet again in Heaven, where the best is yet to be....
