My deepest condolences for the Mikola family during this hard time. While I never knew Mrs. Mikolajczyk personally, I do know Rich and it's a pleasure to work with him. If she was anything like Rich, I'm sure she was a fantastic person. My sincere thoughts and prayers go out to Rich and the rest of the family.

Sarah, Jim, Richard, David and Michael,
Your mom was such an important person to so many of us at St. Andrew\'s. I appreciate how kind she always was to my father in the choir. My mom still talks about it. And that is just a tiny slice of how much she meant to all of us. I am sorry for your loss. GBU all.

Your Mom and Dad were kind to me when I needed a little 'parenting' - they loved the Seahawks and they sure loved and supported you.
I'm sure your Mother was proud of your successes - couple of 'leaders' your whole lives. I'm proud of you, too ... and I think of you both often.
Couple of Mikolajczyk square-jaws with your heads up and charging forward, no 'back-up' in you. I hope you and your families are well.

Jim, Sara, Richard,
I am so sorry for your loss. Your Mom was a wonderful person who loved life and the Lord.
She was a close friend to my mother Virginia Jerozal. May she rest in peace with the Lord.
May the Lord give all of you strength and comfort at this sad time.
