A Grandmother's Love
There are those that remember
Your kindness and unconditional love
Your drive and ambition
To succeed on your own
Despite the racism and poverty
There are those that remember
Your voice and your smile
That reassured there was always tomorrow
There are those that remember your faith
Your believe and willingness to defend
There are those that remember what
You said, "Despite all your misgivings...
Remember to forgive yourself.
Save some room in your heart for you
And never forget to appreciate,
Your life and the life you give."
I know you did not walk away
Your beside us, everyday
Unseen, unheard, but always near
Still loved and missed Nokomis.-Gina GASONGI SIMON- MISHIBINIJIMA

BAKER, Francis Gerard " Frank" (1950-2007)
Passed away one year ago today in his 57th year. Prayer of Saint Francis of Assissi Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; Where there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; And where there is sadness, joy. O divine master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. In our thoughts and prayer, sadly missed but never forgotten love Marilyn; children Lisa (Kevin) MISSELBROOK; Frank (Kimberly) BAKER and grandchildren Braden and Martina.

MISZCZAK o@ca.on.middlesex_county.london.london_free_press 2008-07-13 published
High-ranking Polish soldier leaves legacies of hard work and dedication
By Krista SEGGEWISS, Sun., July 13, 2008
He survived on bread and water in a Russian prisoner of war camp, then went on to fight in one of the Second World War's toughest battles.
Chester MISZCZAK earned the Virtuti Militari, the highest Polish military decoration, for his support role in the Battle of Monte Cassino in 1944.
The longtime Londoner died recently. He was 91.
"He worked hard, partied hard and lived life to the maximum," said son Edward.
Born near Warsaw, MISZCZAK was a member of the Polish army when the Germans invaded in 1939.
He was captured, taken prisoner and wound up in the hands of the Russians until they joined the Allied powers.
Many Poles, serving under British command, later wound up fighting with the Allies.
From January to May 1944, MISZCZAK joined the Allied effort to drive the Germans out of Rome, a costly campaign made up of a series of battles, including one focused on Monte Cassino, a mountain topped by an historic abbey.
The Allies secured victory, but at a steep cost, losing about 54,000 soldiers.
"It was a very difficult battle. Throughout Monte Cassino my father saw things he didn't want to see," said son Michael.
"The pain was embedded in his memory and it began to affect him more as he got older."
After the war, MISZCZAK immigrated to Canada. After arriving in Halifax, he settled in London, where he married his wife Harriet in 1949.
Despite service with the Allies, MISZCZAK wasn't able to get his veteran pension in Canada.
He worked at General Steel Wares for nearly 31 years. He also picked tobacco on weekends to support his family.
"He was a tough guy and a family guy, but above all a hard worker," said Michael. "He worked seven days a week."
It was hard at first because Canadians weren't welcoming, said Michael.
London was mainly an Anglo-Saxon city during the late 1940s and MISZCZAK worked blue-collar jobs, he added.
"He often said he felt punished for seven years, five in the war and two after," said Michael. "But after that, things were much better."
MISZCZAK kept in contact with his army Friends and frequently visited them. He encouraged his children to focus on their education.
"He wanted us to work hard, but to be smart about it," said Edward. "My father always said using your head and not your hands was the way to get ahead."
MISZCZAK's dedication and work ethic are lasting morals that remain with his two sons and granddaughter Kersti.
