The following message was extracted from the http://www.gofundme.com/s5wd29c website
(note: contributing the the gofundme site incurs a 30% administration fee - so less money goes to the family)
My name is Linzi. My dad, Stephen Horvath, or as many know him, Pista, had a very bad stroke about a month ago and i got the call this morning that he passed away. My mother passed away from cancer 22 years ago within this same week. My dad did everything he could for me and my brother growing up but we always struggled. He was a very great man and loved by many. I would love to give him a proper burial and lay him to rest with his beloved wife but unfortunately i can not afford to do that. I ask that you please find it in your heart to donate so i can finally bring my parents together again. I was in the process of finding a place to live before my dad went into the hospital, considering he was homeless, but everything i have is going towards his memorial service. I hope that with your help i can have a proper funeral. I would like to say thank you in advance to anyone who donates. I very much appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you for any financial support you can give! God Bless You!

Brief History
On October 10, 1920, Bishop Walsh established Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church to serve the needs of Hungarian speaking residents of Woodbridge, and in May, 1921 land was purchased on Amboy Avenue, and the dedication of the original church was held on August 7, 1921. During its first years the parish was under the administration of Rev. Bela Smoliga., pastor of Our Lady of Hungary in Perth Amboy. Fr. Hugolin Feisz O.F.M. served as the first pastor from 1927-30. The thirty year tenure of Rev. Vincent Lenyi saw the greatest expansion of the parish. An army barracks was purchased and renovated into a parish hall 1935; the rectory was built in 1936; and in 1957 a home was purchased to serve as a convent. Groundbreaking for the present church took place in 1959, and Bishop George Ahr dedicated the church on June 25, 1960. The old church was converted into a school, which opened in 1961. The Daughters of Divine Charity served the school from its opening until their withdrawal in 1970. Rev. Michael Vincze was installed as pastor on August 28, 1964 and served until 1992. The parish celebrated its 75th anniversary in 1996 during the pastorate of Rev .Vincent Cornejo. Upon his retirement in 2004, the parish was partnered with Our Lady of Peace in Fords, with Msgr. Robert J. Zamorski serving as pastor, and Fr. Jerome K.Kim as Parochial Vicar. The parish now serves a diverse Hungarian, Filipino and Korean congregation. Over the years, the parish has hosted many notable Hungarian visitors, including Prince Otto of Hungary in 1940, Jozsef Cardinal Mindzenty in 1974, and Ladislaus Cardinal Paskai, Archbishop of Esztergom and Primate of Hungary in 1989. In January 2006, Rev. Albert Sunho Kwon was appointed as Parish Administrator, and has recently returned to the Pusan Diocese. Effective October 2007, Father William Smith had become the pastor of the parish. Our close friends, the Korean community, has now relocated to the South Edison/Highland Park area.
Effective July 1, 2012 with the Diocesan renewal/restructuring, the parish has merged in with St. Anthony of Padua.
