Shawnee, The first time I saw you and Juriy was when Juriy rode his bicycle to the Asbury Graphite office, with you on the bike also, to fill out an employment application to work at Asbury graphite. I remember how happy you both looked and I was so impressed with the politeness and respect you both showed.  I was very pleased to hear that Juriy was hired. My sincere condolences to you and your family.  My heart goes out to you especially.  I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.  I wish I had got to know both of you better. God Bless you- Brenda Huxta (Asbury Graphite Office)
To  Juriy Bourenko's Family, Yuriy was a kind person. We knew Yuriy from his youth and he had spent time in our home in his early years. Yuriy will remain in our hearts.  Our deepest condolences to his family. Wende and Ellis
