Days gone by growing up as a neighbor at Velehrad in Fayette County across the road where Eugene and Almeda lived on the old school property they acquired, we'd see them on a regular basis.
Almeda would go to her father in law Ben Jurica's Store numerous times a day. Times have changed over the years and time continues to go by. Except for the Velehrad historical marker and the cemetery, the community is near non existant except in our hearts and memories. May God bless and reward Eugene and Almeda. Bless them both. Thank You for the opportunity.
