Dear Marilyn, It was an honour to know and work briefly with Doc. She inspired me in so many ways during our conversations re: helping children attain their full potential. I know that she will be so missed by you and the Venta family. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Denise

Agatha has always had a constant presence in my family and she meant a lot for many people I really care about. I had the privilege to have her as a mentor, when I was a student in psychology. She taught me a lot, and most of the time saying very little. A glaze, a nod, a pause were enough from her to make me think and understand something new. I couldn't sleep when I was told about her departure trying again to get a significance from this. She would have invited me to do so. My sadness for this loss which is affecting all of us is anyway overcome by a deep sense of gratitude towards her. Thanks Marlyn for giving us to opportunity to share these feelings with you.

Our heartfelt condolences to Marilyn. Agatha's exceptional personality was a great inspiration to our sister Ginetta since her University years in Milan and throughout her life. Prayers and fond memories of Agatha are what we have to remember her, knowing that now she is, with Ginetta, in the presence of God.

Our daughter, who was having difficulty learning in other environments, had the opportunity to work with Doc and the wonderful teachers and staff at Venta. She attended Venta from grade 3 through 8. During that time she was taught many things but mainly she was taught to understand her strengths and weaknesses. She is an honours graduate from High School in Ottawa and George Brown College in Toronto. Today, after gratuating with top marks, she is working as a Dental Hygienist at City Oasis, the best Dental Office in Downtown Toronto. Thank you Doc and Venta for the contribution you have made to our daughter's life. I miss both Doc and my amazingly independent daughter.

I've never met Agatha Sidlauskas, nevertheless, her life story and dedication for children inspired me to do my best in psychology studies and to care more about children. Condolences from Ateitininkai from Lithuania.

What inspiration and dedication Agatha Sidlauskas brought to Venta school. We were so happy when our daughter chose to enter our grand daughter, Emma, in Venta for her first five years of elementary school. Those early years have provided a firm foundation for her further education. Thank you Agatha and Venta school.

They say in 100 years you will only be remembered for the positive impact you had on the life of a child. If this is indeed true, "Doc" will be remembered for eternity. Our deepest condolences to family and all who were close.
