Dear Babcia, May your soul rest peacefully. I remember as a young child questioning why your pencils lacked erasers - almost like they had been purposely removed. Your response will always bring laughter, "Erasers are for people who make mistakes". One of many favourite memories, you certainly did not make mistakes when it came to being a grandmother, and great-grandmother. Your love and humour will be deeply missed, but always remembered. We love you Babcia!

Auntie Helen had a sparkle in her eyes and was always smiling and laughing. I remember her kidding around with her sister Bertha, they always seemed to have a joke going. I know you will be missed Auntie Helen.
