Dear Ann, Nick and Melissa,
We were so saddened to hear of the passing of our dear friend, Vladimir, and so very, very sorry for your loss. We’ve known you and Vladimir for many, many years. Richard has known him even longer,; working together in the conveyor industry and other jobs. We have such beautiful memories of you, Vladimir, his dad and your mom at the house on Richelieu in the 70’s. Great food like ” kapuska,” good drinks, singing “spevey,” bandura playing; but most of all ... the wonderful company and our long-lasting friendship through the years! We will always treasure those times together! Vladimir will be in our hearts and minds forever! Richard and I send our deepest heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. Ann, please remember we are always here for you ... and just a phone call away.
Love you very much, Eleanor and Richard
(Unfortunately, we were not able to share this memory until now, because our internet was out.)
