Krassie a time for peace
« on: October 12, 2015, 11:19:43 AM »
AS some of you maybe aware krassie has been suffering from Cancer for the last months.

It is with regret that she lost her battle in the last few days, my condolences go to her family in the states and in Ukraine.

She was a active member in our chat room on many occasions and always had a cheerful input.

Be at peace now Krassie.
Today is only one day in a life of happiness

I didn't know she had cancer.  Very sad.

Our thoughts should be with her family and friends. 

Rest in Peace Krassie.

Sad news, puts other crap into perspective really!

Thoughts go out to her family!!
If you get a minute check out Bruce's TR - Its not quite finished, however its still a pretty good read IMHO.

If I win the lottery I'll finish it this week if not I'll probably complete it when I retire!!! Until then I hope you enjoy the story so far!

It is so sad!
I never knew her, but I heard so many warm and kind words about her from Larry.
Krassie прошла через страшное испытание тяжелой болезни.
Пусть земля ей будет пухом!

          Молитва
Господи Боже, склони свои взоры
К нам, истомленным суровой борьбой,
Словом Твоим подвигаются горы,
Камни как тающий воск пред Тобой!

Не искушай нас бесцельным страданьем,
Не утомляй непосильной борьбой,
Дай возвратиться к Тебе с упованьем,
Дай нам, о Господи, слиться с тобой!

Константин Бальмонт, 1894год.

I like this Krassie’s post.
She wrote it July 04, 2012 in thread “CNN story on UA women seeking hubbies”:

“Good luck to you, guys!
Come to my native town Chernigov for a bride.
The agency is right across the building where I lived before coming to the US.”

I remember Krassie from chat.
Always had a kind word for me.
Always classy, always helpful.
May she rest in peace.
Condolences to her family and friends.
