Hi Wendy/Uncle George, I loved my cousin dearly. He was someone that I looked up to. I will live the rest of my life as he did his life. With kindness and caring. He was very special to everyone. So many bad people in this world and he had to leave us. This does not seem fair, but only the lord will understand. Please do not hesitate to call me for anything. As always, I am here for my family. Love you all. I hope that Abigail and Anna will get to know Sabrina. I want to make sure she is close to her Dziorney cousins. Sincerely, Durietha

Let heaven fill your thoughts. Do not think only about things down here on earth Colossians 3:2

Praying for you and your girls. Your greif is deep within my heart. I remember the gleam of deep love for eachother I saw in both of your eyes. My memory was how Jim showed us the easy way to open Alaskan King crab legs. Every time we eat them I think of the two of you and think about how silly we all looked with our plastic bibs at the “all you can eat” crab fest! I pray all the memories you and Jim created together bring a great sense of peace and joy today, tomorrow and as your little girls grow.
