To the Kawalek family, I am saddened to learn of your matriarch's passing. I met this wonderful family many years ago when I was a friend of the late Charlotte....... she introduced me to her family, brought me to the chicken farm in the country, and I listened to many incredible stories....although it is so many years later, you never forget special people..... it is so nice to see so many grandchildren so that this family will carry on forever despite what they were forced to endure. God bless.
