My Wujek Andzrej was definitely one of a kind. He always put himself before others, had a heart of gold. I will miss your smile and miss the holidays with one of my favorite uncles. It will never be the same without you. I’m glad you’re not suffering anymore, tell Danny and dziadek we say “hi”. Please watch over Ciocia Ela, David, Sylvia, babcia and all of us. Until we meet again. Love you!
