You were always an inspiration for me to fix things rather than just throw them away. Thank you for your many years of caring and just being there. Your smiling face was always reason to be happy. I cherish every moment the bubs were around you from birth until just recently. It was so hard seeing you full of life one week and then the next week on your last breathe ---but I know you lived a full life and ready to meet our Savior. May you rest in peace and you will always have a place in my heart.

Love, Karin

You will be so missed. You were filled with such wonderful advice, wisdom, and stories of the past. You always emphasized the importance of education and self reliance to me, and helped me to become the woman I am today. Thank you and I love you.

Dzadji, you were the kind of person that would do anything for your family. You are the only grandfather I ever knew, and i am so lucky it was you. I loved that I got to draw pictures for you and spend time with you teaching me polish. I love you always.


Dazadji, you were a great grandfather and even a better man. I miss you dearly but know you are in a great place in heaven, speaking polish with Grandma and your family. I love you.

I have many wonderful memories since I became Hodyl. We lived in Floral Park, the street next to his and did not meet until I started to date his younger brother and from the start I became part of his family. Thank you Janek and the family for this. He would stop over at our house in Locust Valley to give advice and help us build a garage, find a car for us when I had an accident, always the best cars. I remember Christening of Monica, Dorothy was her godmother, Birthday celebrations, picnics in the garage in Floral Park. He build an addition to his house when they expected James. How he knew so many things, where he learned I never knew, but most of all, that we all could depend on him. After he and his family moved to Florida my husband was lost without his brother. Now all in Heaven, looking down on us until we'll meet again, rest in peace Janek.

I will always remember what a good older brother he was. He always took such good care of my car. He would ask if I needed the car on a certain day and I always knew why he was asking. He would take my car and change the oil, rotate the tires and everything else that needed to be done. I will always remember his kindness and his gentle spirit.
I am sure he is dancing with Dorothy in heaven and we are truly blessed for his life as it left such sweet memories.
Till we meet again.
Your sister,
Barbara ❤️

Dad, I've learned so much from you... more than you probably ever knew. Yes, you taught me how to change the oil, lay tile, hang drywall and paint a house.... but all the while you also taught me how to be a man - a husband - a father.... and some day a Dzadji.

Rest in peace - your work here on earth is done - and it was done very well.

I love you Dad,

I will miss you in more ways than you can ever imagine. Our weekly trips to Addis ( your favorite store ) , shopping at the dollar store and church every Saturday night. You depended on me for so much in your daily living but I am the one who has reaped all the rewards of your love and friendship. I will remember you dearly. “Thank you my sweetheart “.
