Volodya's memorial family visit

Please join us in raising money to cover expenses for Volodya's mother and sister's visit from Russia to see Wendi, Sasha, and Sam.


Volodya passed away following a three month battle with pancreatic cancer, on Thursday September 20, 2018, at the age of 48 years. He was born and raised in St. Petersburg (then Leningrad) Russia. Voloya's mother, Mila, and sister, Anya, are coming from Russia to visit October 23rd – November 7th. (Volodya would have been 49 on October 23rd. But in true Volodya style, he decided last October that he would be 51, because he didn’t want to have the obligatory “almost the big 5-0” conversation with everyone.) October 30th will be an important day, marking 40 days since Volodya’s death. They are praying at Volodya’s grandmother’s church in Russia for 40 days, and on the 40th day they can say goodbye.
