RIVERSIDE, Calif. - The Helen Sherban Lapica Education Fund Inc., has announced that a panegyric about Helen Sherban Lapica titled "She Lives in Our Hearts" ("Vona Zhyvev Nashykh Sertsiakh") has been published in Kyiv in two languages - English and Ukrainian.
The 121-page book was edited by Ray Lapica, president of the non-profit fund. It contains 55 letters from Mrs. Lapica's friends; 24 paintings, mostly of Mrs. Lapica, by Sylvia Dinkel and Mr. Lapica, 33 poems about Mrs. Lapica; two commentaries by Ronnie and Larry Lapica, a eulogy by the Rev. Bill Davis; and two "Dear Helen" letters by Mr. Lapica.
In "A Letter to an Angel," Mr. Lapica says Mrs. Lapica will long be remembered as a co-star in "Marusia," the first Ukrainian film produced in America, and by her family and many friends she inspired with her life.
