Sorry to hear about your sweet mom. I talked to her on phone just before her birthday, l tried again Dec 1, but no answer. I really enjoyed visiting Helga, lots of good laughs, lots of humour and jokes. I got to know her when she lived in her trailer. She was a very good cook and always invited me for a meal. She will always be remembered as such a kind person.
My thoughts and prayers are with you. Take Care!
So sorry to hear about your mom, she was a great woman, she spent alot of time with our family, and looking after my girls when they were growing up. I would have love to have gone and visited with her but because of covid I was not able to see her. We have thought alot about thru out the years, I remember when I got married in 1991, your mom was the biggest joke teller, she had all of us rolling on the floor. she also made all my bridemaids dresses. I will always remember your parents, my thoughts and prayers are with you and family. Ilona if you every want to talk or text you can reach me at 250-503-6356. Love from my family to yours.
My dad and Marta also give their condolences to you and your family . Take care of yourselves xoxox Debbie Kowalchuk
Deepest condolences in the loss of your sweet Mom. I remember her fondly as a friend and great seamstress. Her witty personality and sense of humour. But mostly for the love of her family she cherished and talked about with such warmth and pride❤️
