Dear Lydia and Mark,

My husband, John, and I had such great times with your parents at the Washington Slavic Male Chorus practices every Sunday night and at the Slavic Male Choir's performances for many years. John sung second tenor; Bob sung bass. Your dear mom, Ludy, and I would listen to the songs and talk about the old times and new, catch up on what your two and your families were doing and enjoy the company. Your mom would translate the Russian words. Thank you for sharing your parents with us; they brought us joy! Memory eternal!

Christ is Risen, Betty and John

My brother Steve and I, Lydia and Mark loved to laugh about our typical kids/teenagers do. Will always cherish those memories. Jessica Giusti Strother

Dear Daddy, I miss you so much my heart is breaking. I feel so blessed to be near you the last year of your life and that we could enjoy the Blue Ridge mountains of Crozet, listening to classical music together, and having lunch together at The Lodge. I pray you have found Mom now in the vastness and greatness of heaven and that you our together again. Thank you for being the best Dad and the best grandfather to Robert. You taught me to appreciate art, history and travel and to embrace unconditional love. Sleep well in His arms. Tell Mom I will love her always and please always remember those of us in our family who love you and remain behind. Love you, In Christ and Memory Eternal, Your daughter, Lydia
