William Rybarczyk

He was the Santa Clause of the Rybarczyk's and the Misiuk's for our very early years. I still remember the pillow that was under his tummy. The Deer were out grazing somewhere while he brought the presents !!!!
What a great guy that is now in the presence of the Lord OUR God.
Can you believe it ??? He is in the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ right now.
