A warm wonderful family - Mr. and Mrs. Klizas were like second parents in those early years when we lived next door to them. The name Klizas brings warm memories. My condolences to Mrs. Klizas, Steve and Mark

So many memories of my Uncle John - many of them from my growing up years - he always had a ready smile and joke. I remember the time that Jeff and I went with Aunt Pam and Uncle John to the seaport and to Yale University - that was early in our marriage. We visited with them many times in CT. From my growing up years, I remember the yearly Lithuanian Days in PA. I remember the many parties for graduations, weddings, birthdays, etc. Whenever, he was there, he brought so much happiness. I will cherish our phone calls and he never would end the call without saying - "we pray for you". I know Uncle John is now with my mother, Aunt Anna and other family members who have gone on before His faith was always so strong. I am thankful for the memories that I will always have. God Bless, Aunt Pam, Stephan and Mark during this difficult time.
