    “Let us hurry to love people they depart so quickly” /Jan Twardowski/

    z głębokim smutkiem przyjęłam wiadomość o śmierci Twojego męża.
    Pomimo tego, że nie miałam okazji go poznać , jestem bardzo wstrząśnięta tą informacją.
    Ludzie w sile wieku nie powinni od nas odchodzić.
    Proszę przyjmij ode mnie i całej mojej rodziny, wyrazy głębokiego współczucia.

    “Śpieszmy się kochać ludzi tak szybko odchodzą
    zostaną po nich buty i telefon głuchy
    tylko to co nieważne jak krowa się wlecze
    najważniejsze tak prędkie że nagle się staje
    potem cisza normalna więc całkiem nieznośna
    jak czystość urodzona najprościej z rozpaczy
    kiedy myślimy o kimś zostając bez niego. ” /Jan Twardowski/

    “Let us love people now they leave us so fast
    The shoes remain empty and the phone rings on
    What’s unimportant drags on like a cow
    The meaningful sudden takes us by surprise
    The silence that follows so normal it’s
    Hideous like chastity born most simply from despair
    When we think of someone who’s been taken from us.” /Jan Twardowski/

  2. Anna, I just came across your fathers passing. I’m so sorry for your loss. It was a shock to me when I read this as I considered Kaz a friend. We had both started work at the same place at almost the same time and I was so impressed with his ability to acclimatize himself to a new country. I considered him a friend. He always had a kind word for me and I hope I had for him.
    His friend, Ed
