My dear wife of 20 years passed away on July 13, 2021, after a most courageous battle against pancreatic cancer.
She was 55 years old, born in the Czech Republic, she earned a degree in metallurgy sciences and then came to the states in 1994. We met in Bedford, NY, in 2000, while walking our dogs. We moved from NY to Summerfield, NC, in 2004, and there Radka began pursuing her true passions in life, horses, and dressage. Her beloved horse, Jaco, an Oldenburg, which she trained herself after purchasing him as a yearling, won many events and was the apple of her eye. Always positive and welcoming, Radka made friends everywhere and loved to share our home and hospitality with them. She was the consummate achiever- she was organized and always needed a project to master and a problem to solve. She fought her illness in the same tough and upbeat way, trying to find an answer that sadly could not be found in time.
She will be missed by all whose lives she touched. Radka, I will love you forever.
