Len and Donna,

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and we share in your grief.

Aunt Lil was an amazing woman. I have so many fond memories of stopping by and she would always have me try whatever wonderful food she was cooking. Christmas Eves have never been the same without all her delicious Polish dishes. I used to love sitting on the porch and listening to her and my mom talk about when they were kids and how they would laugh together. I will never forget all the times we crashed their Sunset Beach vacations and she was more than welcome to have us. She was a sweet, kind and very giving woman and I will always remember how much she loved her family. Aunt Lil, we love and miss you so much.

Karen, Al and Zack

Len and family,

I wish I had the right words to bring the comfort that your Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Mother In Law I imagine most often shared. I understand how difficult the loss of such a loving mother can be. It appears to me she has left behind her Legacy in her family whom from what I have seen/heard are a very thoughtful and loving family. I hope this time brings you all closer than you were before and sheds more of her loving light upon the world and those that remember her.
Fondly, Sue-Ellen Caswell
