Not sure what to say?

I knew Father Lucjan in my childhood in Montreal in the 50's and 60's and memorably during the Po;ish summer camps in Knowlton, QC. I read his book Stolen Childhood which related me to the hardships suffered by Polish survivors and displaced persons because of WW2. He was indeed a great and kind man and deserving to have had such a long and fulfilled life.

Our heartfelt sympathies to the community of Chicopee on the loss of Father Lucjan Krolikowski. What a Celebration of Life for this kind, compassionate shepherd. I have just read his book, Stolen Childhiod for the 2nd time and stand in awe of one of God's Angel's.
May God receive you eternally into His living care.
