Dear Ala, Kasia, Dave, Mila, Steve. Michael, Maja and the little ones,

So sorry to hear that Andrzej had died. Our condolences to Ala and all the family. I remember Andorzej when he was 18 years old. He stayed with us at Horninghold Leicestershire. This was over 50 years ago. I still have a memory of him showing me how to make great toast on a camp fire.
Dear Ala and family,
You are in our thoughts in this difficult time.
Andrew, you will always live in our memories.
Dear Ala, Sincere condolences to you and Family at this difficult time.
Droga Alu z Rodzina, przyjmij nasze wyrazy glebokiego wspolczucia w tym trudnym dla Ciebie czasie.
To all of Andrzej’s family we offer our deepest condolences. We are so sad to hear of your loss.
Andrzej is our cousin and have fond memories of him in the 1960’s & 70’s.
One particular memory I will never forget when he was in the UK, probably 18 or 19 years old, he wanted to buy a car and drive it back to Poland. Very enterprising and it would have been quite an adventurous journey in those ‘cold war’ ‘iron curtain’ times.
May all your happy memories of Andrzej bring you some comfort in this sad time.
Sending healing prayers and comforting hugs to the whole family. I’ll always remember the joy that Andrzej brought into our lives and the amazing childhood memories of going to Lake Windermere, they will be cherished forever?
Dear Alicja with enlarged and lovely global family.
We are sending to you, and your family deep condolences on the Andrew departure to God’s House. We are sure he deserved great place, knowing his heart for the life sanctity from the moment of conception, so the dearest and closest; family and friends. I am sure that he will not stop interceding even more for you all, being so close to the Almighty God. Merciful Father have mercy for our Brother in Christ, Andrzej.
With love…Zofia + Eugeniusz
Quote: “I thought of all the love we shared for the life sanctity, so when the future starts without me too,
don’t think we’re far apart, I am in your heart and you are in my heart”
I just came across this sad news today.
May peace be with you. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this painful time.
