Kupchenko family,

Very sad to hear about Auntie Helen’s passing. Auntie Helen & Uncle Nick were great people and always struck me by how kind and welcoming they were to my family and I whenever we’d stop by Two Hills.

I’m sure that she’s at peace now and that her life has left a lasting impact on everyone she’s left behind.

I’ll be sure to light a candle for her (along with one for my Baba) when I’m in an especially beautiful church in Ukraine this summer.

From: Rose&Fred Plaska
Relation: Was a very close neighbor in our area.

Our blessings & sympathies to rest of the family.

From: Sally Yake (nee Gongos)
Relation: Schoolmate of Alan

Sorry to hear of Helen’s passing. My thoughts are with you all.

From: Ron Gloria Rosychuk
Relation: Family of Helen's sister

Emily Serna & families;
Our condolences on the loss of your sister.
Вічная пам’ять
