As a child I spent lots of time at the Borkowski home. Susie and I were elementary best friends. A few of my memories were visiting your grandparents and the little store across the street. But my favorite memory is being invited for salmon patties. We all sat around the table and it was crowded in that small kitchen but it was full of love and laughter. The best salmon patties ever. These are just a few of my memories. There were many but these are my favorite few. God bless the Borkowski family as they mourn the loss of their mother and grandmother.

I have so many memories from my youth of aunt Doris, she was the best, on friday nights when I’d spend the night and we’d go with uncle Dick to pick her up from work at Kroger, she’d let us pick out a bunch of junk food and many times I’d eat so much I’d get sick. I remember her crying over General Hospital, back in the day when Audry and Jessie were characters, Aunt Doris caused and feeded my addiction til this day. Joan will have to take over for her. I will miss her, she was the sweetest aunt.

Mrs B, as I always called her, was always so sweet to me and seemed to always be glad to see me. She was a wonderful lady and she will be missed❤❤❤
