A memorial Mass will be help at 10:00 am October 28, 2019 at St. Philip Catholic Church, 112 Capital Avenue NE, Battle Creek,Michigan 49017.
Stanley Michael Kiczenski, 37, passed October 10, 2019 in Oscoda, Michigan after years of struggling with an opioid addiction.
He was a kind, intelligent, funny man, who will be missed dearly by his family and friends. Stan attended St. Philip schools and graduated from Natomas High School in Sacramento, California. Then he attended both Kellogg Community College and Wayne State University.
Addiction robs us of so much. The family asks that all those with loved ones who struggle to never give up! There are people willing to help with this fight, such a Momentum, Recovery Services Unlimited, Families Against Narcotics, N.A, etc. Please consider a donation to any of them.
Our family’s battle may have ended, but many are still fighting. Don’t stop trying. While there is breath, there is hope.
A memorial Mass will be said for Stan at St. Philip Catholic Church on October 28, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. followed by a lunch at North Avenue Church of God, 1079 North Avenue. All are welcome. Our hearts ache, but have peace knowing he is no longer in pain. For God has taken him home whole, healed and loved.
Always in our hearts,
FOR NOW I’M FREE
Don’t grieve for me for now I’m free. I’m following the path God laid for me. I took His hand when I heard the call. I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day. To laugh, to love, to work, to play. Tasks left undone must stay that way. I’ve found that peace at the close of day. If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss. Ah, yes, these things I, too, will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow, where I go, you’ll one day follow. My life’s been full, I savoured much, good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch. Perhaps my time seemed all to brief, don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted me now, He set me free.
