A very good friend of our family, Maria (Tatarczuk) reposed in the Lord a few days ago. She was our "adopted baba" so to speak, having lavished much love and gifts on my sons as they grew up.

She led a life of suffering and sacrifice, as her and her husband's family endured frequent imprisonment and harrasment for hiding Greek Catholic clergy and religious items until the late 1950s when they were able to escape first to Australia and then to the US. After the Parastas tonight we will be putting her on a plane tommorrow to return to her village of Hrushka as she wished to be buried next to her father, and the village priest will complete the rest of the burial services.

To one of the grandest ladies I have ever met, Вічная пам’ять.

May our Lord have mercy on Maria's soul and bring her into a place of light and refreshment where there is no sorrow or pain.

AMEN.

I hear you love.

May her memory be eternal+

Lord of the Powers be with us, for in times of distress we have no other help but You.
Lord of the Powers, have mercy on all those that loved her.
Grant them peace in their day Jesus.
