We are both so sorry about your dad's passing. We have such great memories of the fn get-togethers we had when you kids were growing up. He taught me to love kielbasi. Everything he cooked was always so delicious. We still have the old roasting pan that he gave us so that our roasts would come out as good as his. "Never scrub it clean", he said. That is what gives the flavor. Loved our times together with all of you. May he rest in peace with your mom now.
