To the family of Mrs. Kaluschny,
Our heartfelt condolences to you all, on the passing of your beloved mother/great/baba, Victoria. We had tremendous respect and admiration for her. She was such a vibrant, energetic force in London’s Ukrainian cultural community from her beautiful pysanka artistry to her tireless and devoted fundraising work coordinating church food sales to note just a couple. Her selfless kindness to all will be missed. Vichnaya Pamyat!
