Tuesday August 26th… It was a celebration of life!! What a life!!!!!!!


We just returned from a day of joyous celebration of the life of Lenny Jankowski, husband of Lillian, or Terry as Lenny and her family call her. She had a lovely memorial service at the church and upon leaving, everyone there held a balloon through a brief recount of Lenny's meeting with Lillian that day in Poland and a few more stories before everyone released their balloon to the heavens while the song "Wind beneath my wings" Played in the background..... then all of us shared a really great meal at a restaurant across the street. Lillian had picture books of the many places her and Lenny traveled since they met in 1981 in Poland while both were on separate tours. They married on August 26, 1983.………Twenty five years ago today. Fitting that Lillian had the service and celebration of Lenny’s life on their 25th wedding anniversary. He was a special person sent to Lillian by God and they truly enjoyed each others love throughout their time together. As I told Lillian, everywhere she ever goes in life, she will be surrounded by best friends……… because that is the type of person she is…..the BEST. Thank you Lillian, for being Vicki’s and my friend and thinking enough of us to share Lenny’s special day and the celebration of his life with us. God bless you always.
