Sentimental Sunday – Remembering “Papa”

There are times when a person comes into our lives and has such an impact that, no matter what happens, they always have a special place in our hearts.

For me, one of those individuals was Eugene (Gene) Hrachovina. I won’t try to explain the relationship – it’s complicated. But Papa has a special corner in my heart. I have wonderful memories of him making aebleskivers for Sunday family breakfasts, driving the dune buggies way too fast, and taking us to dinner at the Redondo Beach pier. He is the only grandfather my son remembers.

  1. I love the name of your blog. I saw it on the Geneabloggers site and was quite drawn to it. Just wanted to stop by and say "hi." I've been blogging off and on for over 5 years, but I've just begun transforming my blog (and my life) into a genealogy-minded one. I'm enjoying making the acquaintance of all you genealogy bloggers.

    Have a great weekend,
