To all of my dear friends at the MTA:
Please accept our deepest thanks for your many cards, flowers, and words of condolence during this very difficult time for my wife and I following the death of our 24 year old son Kevin. Words cannot express the pain and sorrow we are feeling over this loss; however, having our friends and family close has greatly helped us to remain strong. Although I have been retired for 11 years, the support and fellowship we received from the MTA has made me feel as though I am still active in this wonderful organization. Please know that your kindness and sympathy has not gone unnoticed.
To assist Kevin's children, my wife and I have set up a memorial/education fund at PNC Bank for his children, Kevin (Mickey) 5, Celia, 4 and Krystina 3 (a picture is attached). Should anyone like to contribute to the fund for his children, please feel free to forward the contribution to The Kevin Moran Sr. Children's Memorial Fund C/O of The Moran's at 1271 Guadelupe Drive, Westminster, MD 21157 or C/O Sunshine Safley, PNC Bank, 588 Jemor Lane, Westminster, MD 21157. Most sincerely yours, Frank and Ceci Moran
