victor motyka was my childhood sweetheart. he was kind..what we had i will always hold close to my heart. he was ALWAYS kind and loving towards me. I am very shocked about his death and deeply saddedned that i do not see or can not find ANY memorial services or funeral arrangements for him. he was dealt a raw deal as early as a very young child and simply tried to bury his pain to getthrough his life. i valued him and would hope someone else did as well in regards to some type of celebration of the big hearted person he was inside. his 50 years of life ought to be celebrated.
