Milá Tamarko, moje spolusvědkyně na Simoniné svatbě, moc nás zpráva o Sašově skonu zarmoutila, stále na něj musíme myslet, dokonce se mi tuto noc o Sašovi zdálo. Vzpomínáme na pěkné odpoledne s kachničkou u Miloše doma a na Sašovu účast na některém nedávném srazu maturantů u nás na chalupě na Jestřabí v Krkonoších a také vzpomínám na mojí návštěvu u Vás doma v Montrealu v roce 2009, při mojí návštěvě Kanady v souvislosti s lovem na medvěda. Byl to opravdu dobrý spolužák a kamarád, nikdy na něj nezapomeneme. Přijmi prosím naši upřímnou soustrast. Zina a Škuban Vejvodovi

Dear Tamara, Tanya, Sonia and Family, A dear friend with a charm, intellect and quiet demeanor that stood tall. A passion for discovery, fine dining, many activities and positive spirit for life even when confronted with adversity were his hallmarks. True and ever present to family and friends his many attributes drew you into his sphere. We had the privilege of being part of each other’s personal world with Tamara for over 45 years. That world for us as I am sure for many just got a bit smaller. You will be missed dear Alex but never forgotten. May his memory be a blessing for all those who were part of his life.

Jiří Stryhal - 24 days ago
Milá Tamaro a rodino, přijměte prosím moji hlubokou soustrast. Sáša byl milým spolužákem na gymnasiu v Praze v 60.tých letech. Bylo vždy milé být v jeho společnosti, měl optimistickou povahu a pozitivní myšlení. Rok 1968 nás rozdělil, rok 1989 opět spojil. Použiji parafrázi slov sv. Augustina : "Netruchleme, že jsme Sášu ztratili, ale buďme vděčni, že jsme Ho měli." Křesťané věří, že " Vita mutatur, non tollitur " . Je to i má víra. Bůh s Vámi, Shalom.

Dear Tamara, Tanya, and Sonia, Alex's passing hits very close to home for me, since we've known each other for 25 years. I will always have fond memories of him as a loving and caring husband and father, and also of his jovial and generous nature as a host. In recent years, I had the pleasure to watch him be a doting and adoring grandfather. May you be spared further sorrow, and may Alex's memory be a blessing for you all.
