From: Iris and Lori Melnychuk
Relation: Family Friend

We, sadly, just learned of the passing of Nick. He was such a lovely man and Olga was a beautiful soul. The last time we saw them was at my Baba’s funeral service. They travelled all the way out here to be there for her…some of her last remaining friends from Spedden days. It was so very kind of them. My Baba always told us wonderful stories of the old days and often reminisced about her dear friends. We hope they are both at peace together and reunited with everyone once again. Sending our sincere condolences and sympathies to their family and friends. May Nick rest in eternal peace and may his memory be eternal… Vichnaya Pamyat (Вічная Пам’ять).
