Dear John Edward, we did not know each other but the family Čutek in Slovakia bears you in mind. Our grandfather Anton and your father Jacob were cousins and loved each other. This obliges us to remember you and your family.

Ed, my heart grieves with you and for you. You are a testament to your father. I only knew the little I did through you. But what I do know is that you are one of the finest men I have ever known. Your father’s light shines through your character and walk in this life. I have so admired the life you live, with a wonderful wife, Carolann, and your beautiful children. A family that is as a family should be. What a legacy your father leaves!
