My deepest condolences are extended to the Bucior family. Helen and my mother Johanna, were good friends and traveling companions. They took many trips together as well as spending time in Florida during some winter months. Once or twice a year, for a few years after my mother died, Helen, along with another teacher friend would treat me to lunch. It gave us a chance to catch up on our families and share memories of their teaching careers with my mother. Helen was always easy to talk to, and very engaging. I always looked forward to these visits. I am truly sorry for your loss.
