Droga Czesia:
Frank and I are so very sorry to hear of Roman's passing. I understand the great loss you are feeling at this trying time, but, as they say, time heals. Perhaps it does, but the ache never goes away. Please accept our condolences and know that we are thinking of you and your family and if ever I can help, please don't hesitate to let me know.
Both Frank and I will be attending the funeral mass next week.
My prayers are with you.
With a heavy heart - Irene (and Frank)
