Eugenia, Henry, Gerry and families. So sorry to hear about the loss of your mom and grandmother. I have very fond memories of the sweetness of your mom and playing in your backyard. I also remember going with my grandmother while she had her hair done by your mom. Babci always felt beautiful after leaving your mom's shop. You all are in my prayers. Martha Roy (Krzyzanowski)
