Steve - I would like to express my sincere condolences to you and your extended family. I met you once at Vision when visiting my mother in law Barbara Matuzich. Barbara was truly blessed to share time with your wonderful mom. I continued to visit her periodically after 'Babe's passing. I enjoyed your mother very much and held great admiration for her. Unfortunately, I was in Windsor for a week, the week of your mother's passing. Please know that I am sorry to hear this unfortunate news. I will keep her in my prayers and light a candle on Sundays for her and in her memory. God Bless all of you and yours during this difficult transition. Sincerely, Paulette

To, Steve and Family. Please accept our deepest condolences in the loss of your beloved mother Mary. I remember all the precious days sitting with Mary on her front porch , and the surprised gift of a roaster full of perogies one yr at Christmas time .Being Ukrainian myself many fun talks of old days and the great talks with my father who is now diseased. Mary had a great sense of humour and we shared any laughs. I will cherish the Ukrainian Easter egg that I have .Mary may you rest in the grace and peace of God . Xxx
