  1. During the early Busch Gardens soccer years, at an indoor game at Affton, Mr. Kriska’s reaction to the other team’s goalie dribbling out to mild field inspired me to be even more of an enforcer on the field. I remember his exact expression and words at that moment like it was yesterday. He raised a wonderful family. Really appreciated his coaching. A good example to his players. God rest his soul.

  2. Dearest Pam,

    We were so sorry to hear of Tom’s passing. You are all in our prayers.

    Paul and Martha Strifler
