  • Step, Siggy, Courtney & Emily,

    So sorry to hear about Babcia. I am sure she is doing the polka with
    Dzia-Dzia in heaven. I can still remember watching Dzia-Dzia play the accordion and sing while Babcia danced when we were little in Breezewood. She was always such a sweet lady. She was very lucky to have such wonderful care from all of you over the last few years! Hugs to you all…Julie

  • Although we are all saddened by the loss of dear Babcia, we are sure she is rejoicing in her reunion with the love of her life, Dzia Dzia.

  • Dear Mika Family, My wife and I are very sorry to hear of the loss of your dear love one. We know this is a difficult time for you. We want to share something with you that has comforted us during times like these. It is comforting to know that God never meant for us to experience this kind of pain.(Romans5:12)(James 1:13) He has made provisions through his son Jesus to awaken all our love ones asleep in death.(John 11:25)(John 5:28,29) God has also promised to wipe out all tears,pain,sorrow and death forever. These promises in the bible will soon be a reality.(Psalms 37:10,11&29) They give us hope and comfort knowing we will see our love ones again. We pray that your family find peace and comfort in God’s promises for the future.

  • Dear Step, Siggy, Chris and Fran,

    Our family always felt a special closeness to Babcia and we will all miss her greatly. She was a strong, funny and giving lady. I know she is now reunited with many friends and family and will be keeping watch over her wonderful family who made her last years happy ones. Our love and sincere sympathy to all of you.

    Ingrid and Joe
