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
pier. He is the only grandfather my son remembers. Redondo Beach
