Alek Komarnitsky's closing comments at his father's memorial reception

On behalf of the family, I'd like to again thank everyone for attending Oleg's Memorial Service. He would have been truly touched by your presence today, even though as my brother Kurt told you during his eulogy, my Dad would have said "what are you doing here - go outside and play some golf!"

You are welcome to stick around and continue sharing memories - our family especially appreciates hearing stories about our Dad. I'd also encourage you to visit the memorial website and leave a comment there for all to see.

In the book of life, Oleg's passing is the end of a chapter - I sorely wish there had been a few more pages.

Finally, on a personal note, it has been difficult dealing with the death of my dad. I knew this day would eventually come, but that doesn.t make it any easier. Thank you everyone for your love and support ... and in particular, my siblings Kris, Kurt, Stephanie, and Myke ... and especially my Mom.
