Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
Our deepest sympathies to the Grabowecky Family. Both Erika & Myron were in my parents (Tom & Mary's) bridal party in 1952. They were friends all of my parents married lives, until Tom and Mary moved to BC in 1996. Dad has since passed two years ago and Mary is still alive. Your Mom & Dad were both very special people and are missed very much. Wishing you peaceful and healing thoughts during this sad time. Sincere sympathy, Mary and Doreen & Family - Posted by: Mary & Doreen (Friends) on: Jun 23, 2019
Rick and Janine, I am so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. Take care of yourselves during this difficult time. Brian - Posted by: Brian (Friend) on: Jun 19, 2019
Dear Bill, Rick & Family, Erika was my Mom's (Edna) first dinner partner at CP. I enjoyed the many chats we had. Erika was blessed to have such caring sons and advocates. RIP dear Erika. - Posted by: Leslie Worthington (Friend) on: Jun 15, 2019
What a beautiful picture! I enjoyed every moment I spent with your mom. It was an honour to care for her through the years. She often made me laugh. Her true nature often would shine through. She was extremely kind and loving. My favourite memories are of Erica with her boys. Both of you did such a great job. You were truly devoted to her. I always saw the love. Please take care of your hearts. Love Kim - Posted by: Kim (Caregiver ) on: Jun 15, 2019
