Not sure what to say?

So sorry to hear about Mr. Nazarowff passing away! He was always so nice to our entire family when we would see him in the neighborhood and I know my father thought the world of him as they worked together for so many years with the City of Dearborn. Mr. Nazarowff was a wonderful man and on behalf of The Gomolak family we wish to pass along our deepest sympathy to your family.

Thinking of you all during this time and remembering the moments shared with Uncle George when I was very young.

Regretably, as most families do, we drifted apart as time went on, but that doesn't mean you were ever out of my thoughts.

Sending our thoughts and prayers to Pat and the family during the loss of George. We are fortunate to have known this wonderful and kind soul. He will be deeply missed.

May your memories of the wonderful times you shared with your loved one comfort you and your family, today and always.
