Dear John and Matthew - I was not aware of Helen's illness and am so shocked to hear of her death. I have such fond memories of Helen as a teacher and a loving caring mom. Her sense of humour was always so appreciated at school. Please know I am thinking of you and your family during this difficult time. Paulette Crawley

Do you know how some people have that inner glow? They have an aura, an “essence” that attracts others to them? Everyone wants to be in their presence, and feels better in their company? That was Olenka. The Elyjiw family was fortunate to have experienced many fun adventures with her, during our visits to Hoverla and at our extended holiday family gatherings. I like to imagine Olenka flying high and watching over us. Olenka now belongs to the universe
She will always be missed, but never forgotten.
