  2. Dear Dr. Cerjan and family,
    I was deeply saddened to hear about your loss. Having lost my own dad, I certainly can relate to your loss.
    For me personally, I will never forget the day I accidentally mistook your dad for you. How very kind he was talking to this crazy lady. I think of that day often and smile.
    May God hold you and your family close as you go through this most difficult time.
    My deepest condolences please.

  3. Dr. Cerjan and family,
    I was saddened to hear about your father. I wanted to let you know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.

  4. The Cerjan family,

    So sorry to hear of Rudy’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
    Rudy’s kindness was constant. What a wonderful human being, he will be missed. I worked for him beginning in 1972, at the Atlanta Works where I learned so much about the Western Electric culture and life. Rudy was a great teacher and was always willing to share his knowledge!

    Best regards,
    Cal Beck & Sharon Adamczyk Beck

  5. Rudy was a fine person and will be missed. He was my supervisor for several years at Western Electric. He could always bring a smile to your face. Will always remember him in his clown outfit. My sympathy and prayers go out to his family.
