The family never stopped looking and it was so important to have some kind of official recognition. Maybe verification will come one day.Helen BitneUKHelen, i understand the "what now" you feel. When I hit the wall and feel like I cant do anymore, I have the same question. Be proud you completed the story, the legend and the permanent record for those interested to find. I am actually envious.Mark T.

Subject: Re: [www.Kresy-Siberia.org] 'Richard's Story'
Thank you Krystyna, Lenarda and Mark. I do appreciate your kind words.Actually writing the story helped me to come to terms with Richard's death but when I finished I had to ask 'what now?' He talked all the time to the family about Kazakhstan and school and had a wonderful memory. He recorded the deportation chapters on tape and edited the written chapters himself. The tapes will also will have a place in the K-S VM.I'm looking forward to meeting up for the lecture Krystyna.Helen Bitner UK
