Dear Olya, Walter, Marta, Ken and grandchildren,
My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time.  I wish I could have been there with Slawko, but I want you to know that I loved your mom.  She was definitely one in a million... She always had a smile for everyone and was a caring and loving person who we will all miss terribly, but our wonderful memories of her will let her live on in our lives...love to you all, Pat
