My deepest condolences to the Borda family. May you find comfort in the beautiful words found at Revelation 21:3 & 4, where God promises us that He will soon eliminate all pain, suffering and death. While we wait for this promise to be fulfilled, may the fond memories of Bronislaw comfort you and ease your pain.

Alisa Scott (Martin) - Aug 28, 2016
