The Obligatory Visit

No trip to Peremyliv is complete without a stop at the cemetary. 

My dear aunt Sophia.  I miss her a lot.  She was a wonderful person. 
My great grandfather - the guy pretty much responsible for this whole mess.  The reason?  He and his brothers didn't like America.   
Cousin Slava - the last time I was there, they hadn't finished her headstone.  I stayed at her house the first time I came to the area. 
Cousin Igor...Although something of a wastrel, he was a profound player in bringing the two sides of the family together.  He's been dead 17 years and I still miss him.

OK, so these are some of the dearest departeds.  I knew all of them, except my great-grandfather.  He died in 1958.  It's good to know where you come from.  Of course, I'm pretty sure fate won't deliver me to this same cemetary, but you never can tell!
