    I love the photos you have chosen. I will always recall Rita walking little Pokey around our neighborhood when I first moved to Irvine forever ago. I am so sad for you for this… Love, Meg

  3. I remember your Mom’s smile and soft spoken demeanor. She is such a nice lady! It gives me alot of comfort to think of her in a happy, peaceful realm. I know she’ll always be close at heart for your, Ilga. It kind of makes me wonder if heaven is closer than it seems?!

  4. ..Dear Ilga..
    ..There are no such words to heal the pain in the hearts of those who loved Skaidrite…But there is one thing that makes me to believe still..I know she has departed but without walking away..She just discovered some hidden path to the world where God takes care of all of us…
    ..I remember Skaidrite as great painter…And I will always keep in my memories the time we shared together when she was in Latvia and later,when I and my sister visited you,Ilga, and your Mom in California 2004…Yes, great pictures Skaidrite gave me are on the wall in my room and will always make me to feel her presence…

    ..Being beside…Agnese and my Family…
    Take care ,Ilga!..
