    Dear Johnny,
    I am sorry to hear of the death of your mother. My mother, Helen, and my aunts Marge and Anka often spoke of Olga. I regret that it has been a very long time since I have seen your mother. We will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers. May Jehovah God comfort you with the sure promise of the resurrection.

    We are so sorry for your loss. Mom enjoyed spending time together with her “Lady Friend”. She is doing as well as she can but unfortunatly has no memory of anything now with the Alzheimers Disease…We will send a contribution in her memory. She is at peace and I am sure the two women will meet up again one day.

    With our prayers,

    Richard, Laurie and Marjorie Lynn

    The end of an era. Mom G made the best stuffed cabbage in the world and scolded me like a daughter. She loved and took immense pride in her family, and loved to go out for breakfast and to shop. I will never forget her.
    Thinking of you all, John, Marian and JJ.
