Bernie Kazlauskas

...was a great teacher and elder in the Chicago Romuva (Lithuanian
Paganism) community as well as the greater pagan community. He also,
with his wife Char, ran a store in NW Indiana. He was a great friend
and someone that looked up as Seniunas and friend...even a father figure
in some ways. This comes as a total shock to us as we just saw him on
the 2nd for the Velines celebration. There was no indication that
anything was wrong. Please send your love and hugs to Char and thier 2
children. This a great loss both to the community and personally. He
will be sorely missed. We are still in shock over his loss...--Rev. Eric Roberts

This is from Char, wife of Gintautas Bernardas Kazlauskas (Bernie) who
was the Romuva USA/Canada Chicago Seniunas (Elder)...

"With tears in my eyes, I write this email. My best friend and love of
my life went suddenly to distant Dausa this morning. Gintautas Bernardas
Kazlauskas, the Romuva USA/Canada Chicago Seniunas was only 53.

Born in Siberia after WW2, he was able visit Lietuva only three times in
life. He died a staunch Lithuanian and Romuvietis.

Burial will be at St Casimirs Lithuanian Cemetary in Chicago. Final
arrangements have not been been made Believe it will be on Saturday.
Will post in Draugas Newspaper or you can call or email me.

His wife Kaze Brazdzionyte Kazlauskiene and two children Algirdas and Alena"
