Si and Norma were the best of people, and two wonderful persons. After 14 years of separation, there's no doubt that they're finally reunited again in the presence of the Lord, and living in Paradise. Our deepest regrets and sympathies to the family in this time of sorrow and loss. Peace be with you all. JIM & CAROL

Dear Bartczak family
God is truly holding your Mother in His arms. What a wonderful Christian woman she was. We cherish our memories with her during the time we lived in Ohio. And we will always remember her fondly. I must say I enjoyed all our little excursions whether to a concert or looking at garden homes on a tour in the area. She was a good friend and I thank God I had the chance to know her.
