    Dear Christine, Kit, Shelly and family:

    Our family extends our most sincere and heartfelt condolences during this very sad and difficult time.
    We miss our friendly and cheerful chats at Megan and Cameron’s piano recitals.
    Always remember, every turn and twist, every old familiar spot or poignant memory will whisper of Gottlieb’s existence and presence in your heart, and will forever remind you of his quiet strength, and genuine love and pride for his family. You will also be reminded of just how much his gentle ways will be missed, but you will also feel grateful and blessed to have shared his life with him.
    Cherish the many memories you have created together as a family as they will keep all of you close and connected for always.

    In our thoughts and prayers,
    Tony, Jacqueline and Leighton

    Mrs. Hodinka and family,

    Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss.

    Mrs. Hodinka, I remember how you would ‘air play’ the piano keys during Cameron and Megan’s piano recitals, while Mr. Hodinka looked on with quiet amusement.
    I remember seeing Mr. Hodinka inspired with great pride and joy while watching and listening to his grandchildren perform piano skills with confidence and perfection.
    I remember admiring how fortunate Cameron and Megan were to be able to share these opportunities with their grandparents.
    I remember Mr. Hodinka’s kind and thoughtful praise after all my own piano performances and his encouragement to always practice and to have fun.

    Cherish the memories…

    Blessing to you and your family,
    Leighton Ashton Costanzo
