  1. Dear Karen and Family,

    May precious memories of your mom/grandmother bring you peace
    and comfort in this time of need and help keep her near to your hearts.

    “As long as hearts remember,
    As long as hearts still care,
    We never part with those we love–
    They are with us everywhere…”

    We will always remember Toni’s animated accounts during Czech classes
    and will cherish her desire to share her vast knowledge of the Czech Republic.

    With sincere sympathy,
    Lillian & Marv Roter

  2. With sincere sympathy on the loss of your mother/grandmother. She will be greatly missed by the entire Czech community here.
