Skluzacek family,
We thought of Albert and Adrienne often. As neighbors on Cedar Lake our family got to know and love them.
Sweet and kind people, willing to help a young family just starting out!
Love and hugs to you at this time.

We are sending all of you many hugs during this sad time. Aunt Adrienne was a very sweet, kind lady. We always enjoyed visiting with her at Assisted Living at Mala Strana. She always had such a pretty smile for everyone.
Love to all of you!
