Messages of Condolence

  1. Rick and Jean Hoffman condolence:

    Alan, Karen and family

    Our deepest sympathies go out to all of you on the loss of one of the best neighbors and friends we ever had. Jean and I lived at 4216 Custer for 40 years just a short walk to his garage. I have many great memories of neighbor helping neighbor. He was a great guy and will be missed by many. May God bless him and your Mom as they are now reunited.

  2. Don Prohaska condolence:

    My condolences to the Preslicka family on the loss of Albert. I knew him only via phone calls and Xmas cards. He was an uncle once-removed (our father’s mother was his aunt). My brother Richard and his late wife Judy visited several times with Albert and Dolores during their trips to Chicago from Portland, Oregon. They spoke very highly of Albert and Dolores. We are saddened to have lost the oldest living blood-relative of our Chicago roots and heritage.

Please share your thoughts ...
