Condolence & Memory Journal

We were really blessed to know Uncle Kolya and to spend some time with him in the last 5 years. He was a great and gentle man, very kind and always smiling, therefore he was well liked by everyone and especially the kids! Our four-year-old son loved spending time with him in Uncle Kolya's garden. We are grateful to God for letting Uncle Kolya pass in peace and surrounded by his loving family. He enjoyed every minute of life, he loved helping people around him, and in doing so he set a great example for others. Uncle Kolya was a devout follower of Christ and we will miss him a lot! God gave him a compassionate and caring heart and it's so easy to speak of Uncle Kolya in only kind and benign words!
Igor, Oksana, Vanya
