    I still remember your father from my babysitting days in Omaha. He was our neighbor next door for many years and was always very thoughtful and kind to our family. My husband, Alan, and I send our sincere condolences to the Latka family.

    I just heard today that “Mr Latka” passed (2/23/23). My deepest condolences to all of you! I have fond memories of both your folks on 36 St. Bill was one of those dad’s that I knew really cared about each and every one of his “kids.” May you each know his love for you last forever. Love & Prayers, from your old neighbor, Carla
