Valentina Samylenko was so special to the Lytwyn family - she was my Babcha Kataryna’s best friend and will be forever missed by us. Seeing her was like seeing my Babcha again for a brief moment and for that I am truly grateful. A sweet and caring woman, she was a beloved representative of a generation of parents and grandparents I will always cherish. We are so sorry for your loss and hope you find comfort in knowing how special she was to us.
