My condolences to the Dubicki family. I believe I was friends with John in school back in the 50's and 60's. My grandfather Kazimierz Zielonka was also born in Naliboki, Poland (now part of Belarus) and he would take me to the Dubicki farm up a hill from where he lived in Yantic. I believe my grandfather had other friends in the Fitchville area that he would visit that were also from Naliboki. My mother Jennie Zielonka Czajkowski was also born in 1921 in Fitchville so probably knew Eleanor. Again my condolences to the Dubicki family.
