My deepest condolences to the Leshkiw family during this difficult time. I have wonderful memories of Mr.Leshkiw taking Mary and I so many places as we were growing up. From the Ukrainian camp site to swim and of course picking mushrooms to Toronto so Mary and I could go to Canada's Wonderland. I'm sure Mary, Michael, Alicia and your families will take comfort in knowing the joy your father brought to so many people and to the memories you all will cherish until you meet again. Rest peacefully Mr. Leshkiw.
