It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved father. He is survived by his loving wife Olga, his children Stephen (Halina), Yuri, Anna (Tony) and Erena (Joe), his grandchildren Lesia, Julia, Marco and Madison. Tato, you will be forever missed.
Don’t Cry for Me
Don’t cry for me now I have died,
for I’m still here I’m by your side,
My body’s gone but my soul’s is here,
please don’t shed another tear,
I am still here I’m all around,
only my body lies in the ground.
I am the snowflake that kisses your nose, I am the frost, that nips your toes.
I am the sun, bringing you light,
I am the star, shining so bright.
I am the rain, refreshing the earth,
I am the laughter, I am the mirth.
I am the bird, up in the sky,
I am the cloud, that’s drifting by.
I am the thoughts, inside your head,
While I’m still there, I can’t be dead.
