    Rev. Dan Yourkevich
    Dear Luba and family: We were very sorry to learn only today, February 8th, of Tony's passing. We regret that we missed the opportunity to be supportive to you personally.
    Tony was a wonderful man who always greeted me with a smile. He was a wonderful cousin to our father Bill Yourkevich. I will never forget them going out from the hall carolling together. What fun they had.
    In faith we see that Tony has been set free from this fragile world to a new life where he will be at his best. We pray that the Spirit of Christ will enable you to recall the best of your life together over so many years. We also pray that the peace of Christ may be with you now and forever.

    Sylvia Weeks (Krochmal)
    Having recently read of the passing of Tony Turecki, we are very sorry to have missed the services. 
    Luba & Tony used to visit my parents Kathleen & Jakiem Krochmal. They would come with their children and we played in the living room while our parents talked and laughed in the kitchen. They were good friends for a long time and I will always remember Tony's bright smile and cheerfulness. As kids we attended a lot of Ukrainian weddings back then with our parents, and the dancing was the highlight of the evening. I can recall how happy and elegant Tony & Luba always looked on the dance floor!
    On behalf of myself, and my brothers & sisters, Walter, Olga & Natalie, we extend our thoughts & prayers to the family during this difficult time. May your loving memories ease your sorrow and may Tony rest in peace now.
