    Paldies Aivaram par viņa latviešiem veidotos namus: baznīcu un biedrību.

    Tagad viņa mūža namu darina cits Architekts.
    Lai maiga dusa.

    so sorry for your loss Andy, Sherry and Eric. My fondest memory was the Sunday Latvian golf at Alpine. There were only 3 women – me, Anda and Mrs. Kazlovskis so your dad got stuck in our 4some. It was his lucky day. He hit hole in one. Happy guy. How fun.
