Dear Lilly, Anna, Olga, Vera, Michael and extended Czich Family. It is with great sadness that Diane & I are sending our most sincere condolences on the passing of your dear Teodor. There has always been a strong family bond between Ted's family and my father Mikola. My Father arrived in Canada after the war as a single man with no family. My Dad was so proad that he was able to help Ted, Anna, Olga, Ted's Parents & Grandmother immigrate to Canada. Even though my Father Mikola was 13 years senior to Ted, he treated Ted more like a younger Brother even though he was his Nephew. And to me when I was growing up, I looked up to Ted as not only a loved cousin, but more like a favourite Uncle. Ted would let us do things that my Father would not allow us to do and those memories make me smile thinking about them. I will always remember all the wonderful times our own Family had spending time with Ted and his Family in Toronto, Renfrew, Ottawa and especially all the summer trips we had at the cottage in Balm Beach. May Ted be remembered for many years and may he now Rest In Peace.
