Diego and family, much sympathy on the passing of Tota. I remember her fondly from the meals that we shared at River Gardens.
I sat beside her during the first lunch that I had at River Gardens and many more. I enjoyed the decorations hanging on her door and the happy laughter that her grandchildren brought when they visited. Thanks to God for good memories.

Dear Diego,Sam and all of Tota’s family.
I just read that Tota had passed away! I am in the Czech Republic right now so will be unable to come to the visitation.
She was a dear friend of my sister Betty and we worked at Stanley for a long time. Lots of memories!
Please accept my deepest condolences!
Sincerely, Carol Weicker
