Dear Toni, Martin and the rest of Bliznakov’s family. We are deeply saddened by the passing of your wonderful mother. Boyka was a good friend to us for the past twenty years. She was a sweet and unassuming lady, who always put everyone else ahead of her, and who cared greatly for her family and friends. She always had a kind word for everyone, always thinking the best about people. Remembering Boyka’s wonderful and gentle soul will forever remain in our hearts. We were blessed to know her. May she rest in peace!

Condolences to the Family , we will really miss our dear friend Boika , such a gentle soul ..great person she was she will be loved forever .Kamelia Malakoff
