Watching the tribute video took me back spending much of my childhood at the Badura house. Roman, you were an amazing Dad to your children, and all of us who may not have been your children by blood, but called you Dad. You will be missed, but our memories of you will live on!

I think I only met your Dad once and it was obvious he was a loving and caring Dad. Of course that's how each of you became the wonderful people you each are. I enjoyed watching the video, a very nice tribute to his life. I'll be praying for your family as you find the memories of your time with your Dad, grandpa, husband there to carry you onward. He'll be looking in on you! Blessings! Pat Smithson
