    “Mother Boreiko” was such a gentle, warm, loving person. I will never forget her kindness to me and many others. I will miss sharing the joy of gardening with her and hearing her proudly talk about her family. What a blessing and inspiration it has been to know her.
    We will be praying for all of the family at this hard time.
