Mums truks Jusu, Arai.
Visada liksite musu mintyse.
Prisiminsime linksma, energinga, visada su sypsena, skubanti nuosirdziai padeti.
Aciu, kad buvote musu gyvenime..
Uzuojauta seimai netekus brangaus zmogaus.

Glad that Joseph and his mother lived and grew up safely in Chicago with my husband”s father (Paul P. Adams), in his rental apartment for many, many happy and wonderful years.

Neapsakomai skaudu, kad sustojo širdis tokio mielo, tolerantiško ir begalo nuoširdaus žmogaus kokiu Jūs buvote Arimantai.
Ačiū už praleistą laiką, įdomius pokalbius, neužmirštamas keliones po Lietuvą. Jūs visada liksite mūsų širdyse... Teresė ir Vytautas
