    Comrade in Arms Ted Sliwa:

    I “commemorate not celebrate” your fighting actions as you stood on the steps of St. Barbara Church and successfully fought the political factions that wanted to demolish the church to make way for I-176. As a long standing parishioner, I hope you had the opportunity to read the material upon my visitation that I provided on the canonization (now St. John Paul II). Memorial Day and Veterans Day as you made arrangements for the Marine honor guard will never be the same.

    May God grant you perpetual life, may you rest in peace as you join your beloved wife, Carole at Holy Cross. As a World War II vet and as I, a Viet Nam era vet, I salute you. SEMPER FI

    Mr. Sliwa you fought for our country and fought in the public sector as a councilman. I am proud to call you my friend. I will miss visiting with you and you sharing your life stories and discussing politics when I would come home for visits. May peace be with you. It was an honor to have known you. Rest in peace Mr. Sliwa, we will meet again some day.

    The best uncle would ever want. Inspired me to go to college which I did. We have lost the last member of remarkable family. Nothing great just a real family and they had a lot of great members.
    Peace be with you Uncle Ted and Aunt Carol.

    I served in Cleveland Council with Ted. He always spoke his mind and that of the people form his ward. Ted was a real representative for his community. He is missed. Please accept my condolences and that of the Perk family.
