(from memorial speech on Mr. Yaroslav Lemyk funeral)
Today we are brought here to pay last respects to person that we were all accustomed to. We are used to fact that Mr. Lemyk was always nearby, was all the time with us and ready to render assistance. His interests and talents were multifaceted and diversified.
He was collector of folklore and cultural valuables, editor, photo- and video-documentalist, initiator of beneficent events. In his comprehensive approach to life you can observe a certain core, clear principles and attitudes: collect and distribute charity support, pick up and display works of Ukrainian folklore, gather and conserve pieces of historic evidence.
