Yurik passed away suddenly June 6th. We are all heartbroken, he was 57. His burial arrangements are being covered by donations from friends and family. We also must take care of his personal affairs. His family asks if anyone is interested in helping with burial expenses that this fund would accomplish this. I Zina am personally grateful for all the calls I have received and all the beautiful things people have said about Yuri. This has been a difficult week and I pray he is at peace. He has a wonderful work family that has called and expressed their grief but also the admiration they had for Yuri. Yurik was a kind, loving gentle spirit The presence of his absence will be felt for always. With gratitude his family.
