  Mr. HIGGINS. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate Mr. and Mrs. 
Robert and Kathleen Morcio, of Cheektowaga, on their 50th wedding 
anniversary.
   The couple was wed on July 7, 1963 in a ceremony at St. Bonaventure 
Church in West Seneca, NY. Tim Russert, of Meet the Press fame, served 
as an altar boy at the wedding.
   Robert and Kathleen, or Bob and Kitty as they are known, raised four 
children, Robert, Joseph, Ronald, and Cynthia, and now have six 
grandchildren: Taylor, Samantha, Michael, Adam, Ryan, and Riley. They 
reside in Cheektowaga and have been active members of Our Lady of 
Czestochowa parish for over 40 years.
   Bob attended South Park High School and continued his education at 
Bryant & Stratton's business management program and Cornell 
University's management training program. After serving in the U.S. 
Army as a missile technician, Bob began a long career in manufacturing, 
working his way up the ladder from a pressman at a printing company to 
plant and production supervisor. Bob retired from International Imaging 
in 2001 as Senior Production Supervisor. He also was a volunteer 
fireman at Doyle Hose Company II, serving as chief for four years.
   Kitty is a licensed beautician and entrepreneur. She started her own 
beauty shop, Coiffure de Joy, over 35 years ago in Cheektowaga. During 
the time her husband was a volunteer fireman, Kitty served as Vice 
President of the Ladies Auxiliary at the same fire company.
   Mr. Speaker, it is a great honor for me to have the opportunity to 
offer my utmost congratulations to the Morcios and their family on this 
joyous occasion. I ask my colleagues to join me to acknowledge their 
achievement and to pass on our best wishes.
