In memory of Mrs. Woychesin, loving mother and friend to many. I admire her desire to serve others and care for those in her life. She was a smart lady who inspired all who knew her. I will hold precious memories in my heart of conversations I had with her as well as the opportunities I had to learn about gardening and baking.

Busia lived a full life, loved fiercly and was the strongest woman I ever met.
She was the grandmother every child hopes to have -- and I'm so thankful she was mine.

Busia's memory will live on in the hearts that knew her. And because she lived her life selflessly and with love, her life story will live on for generations to come.

It's not good bye -- just "see you later". Until then, I'll enjoy the smiles each memory brings. 🌹
