  3. My Dear Aunt Stella,

    My mother's "other half." That's what you lovingly wrote in her high school autograph book.

    How beautiful was God's plan that you both would come into the world together and leave it nearly so.

    I have fond memories of my time spent in Leonia. I will always remember your laughter. I can still hear you as you called me by my Polish name, Mariska. I remember how proud my mother was of her sister becoming a nurse. And I will forever cherish the memories of searching for the perfect "butterfly" card for you.

    May you now be surrounded by family, resting peacefully in the loving arms of Jesus together with all of His angels and saints.


  4. Dear Susan and the entire Pawlick family,

    Please accept my condolences on your loss, and know that I am thinking of you.

    With love,
    Vickie Gupta

  5. We are so saddened to hear of Stella passing as she always was so amazing and welcoming to my entire family. We are also sad we could not be there for her service but please know we are there in spirit. I know so many hearts are sad by her passing and only hope they find peace in knowing she is walking around having the best time in Heaven. Many prayers for peace and comfort during this time. Love to all!! JJ, Chris, Payton & Miranda Faulkner

  6. Stella looks so beautiful in her picture! I will always remember her and my Grandma Isabelle, and my Aunt Mary making the wonderful and fully traditional perrogies!! Family is so important. I'm glad I get to remember things about her from when I was really young. I am sorry for your loss. I hope you will one day soon find peace. Lots of love to you, and Stella will always be in my mind, heart, and prayers. God bless, and love always from Elizabeth. xoxo

  7. Please accept my deepest condolences. The following words have helped many to cope with the loss of someone special. 1 Corinthians 1: 3, 4 states "Praise be the God and Father or our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials…"

    Our Father, Jehovah God, will help your family and friends cope with such a difficult loss. In 1 Corinthians 15:26 he promises us that "the last enemy, death, will be brought to nothing." I hope the family and friends can find some comfort in this promise.
