• Our wedding was on the 24th of February 1968, and remember that it was a cold day. The first part was a civil wedding ceremony at the City Hall in Košice. From there we went to the big cathedral, Dóm svätej Alžbety. After the reception we went to my parent’s apartment on Krmanova 3. My father hired a cook to do the catering. Taci was responsible for getting the wine. Your father was still in the military at the time of the wedding. He chose his brother as his best man, just as his brother chose Taci when he got married. The wedding group was not very big – somewhere around twenty people. The wedding party included close family, friends and teammates from judo. It was a happy day. Today would have been our 47th anniversary.
• A year and a half later on 5th of September 1969 we left Czechoslovakia. We celebrated your first birthday in Paris, and you took your first steps there as well. We were there with your uncle’s family as well as your godparents, Slavo and Milica Sykorsky. We spent nine weeks in Paris, arranging for visas to enter Canada.
