I am saddened by the death of my first cousin, Jerry Babarcik. We have many fond memories of growing up together as 1st cousins. We loved Sunday afternoon visits to their home where Uncle Lawrence and Aunt Alverda owned a bait and tackle store. It was my first taste of Nehi Orange pop, and it tickled my nose. Jerry warned me it would happen, and then explained the fizzing sensation. I remember playing the card game, Rook, with him and our other cousins and uncles. Lots of laughter and good will. His life and memory is a blessing. My sympathy to Linda and the whole Babarcik family. God bless you. Calvin

I will be forever thankful for Jerry. When I was baptized he bought me a cake to celebrate the event. It was such a lovely gesture. He also sent flowers to my Mom's funeral which meant a great deal.
