    May you rest in peace, Mrs. Grimm. Dear Leroy, Michael, and Mary Ann, our mothers were pierogies ladies at St John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic Church in Pittsburgh. Michael and I were classmates in grade school. Your mom was always so pleasant and the nicest lady. Sending you sincere sympathy and wishing you peace and comfort going forward.
