Ma. I know I can’t hear or see your beautiful smile know more. But I know you will walk by my side like you always did.Just like you will listen to my stories and Wipe away my tears. You will put your arms around me and understand my fears. I will talk to you in Silent and your spirit will reply. You may have left me but I feel you in my heart and our souls will never part. I miss our nightly talks we would laugh and cry. I call your phone and tell you goodnight and I love you to the moon and back I can hear you say to me and around and around. I would tell you your making me dizzy and we would laugh and say goodnight and cry. I would tell you I will call you tomorrow night. I love you ma you were my best friend and the best ma I was lucky to have and proud to tell people this is my ma. Love your daughter Linda. XOXO Till we our together again.

Fond memories ofAunt Lil. She always had a smile on her face and I remember how beautiful her complexion was. I'm sure she will be missed. She was the last of the Brzezinski girls. So sad-a generation is gone.
