I had the honor of studding under you for many years, and at times, with both of your brothers, Lazlo, and Lois.

Those painful times, and your purist form and techniques of Bando that you shared in class, will always be appreciated.

Respectfully, your student and friend,

Albert DeAmicis, MPIA, MPPM

Istvan, I had the honor and privilege of studying under your brothers for three years (’71 – ’73) mostly at their South Par studio. Served me well once enlisting in USMC 7/73. Best regards to you and yours, Bill

My Bando brothers:
I will be entering Bible College mid September 2012 and I ask you all to pray for me as I enter and come down the “home streach” of my physical life, now devoted to Christ Jesus Kingdom work after 54 yr’s of work which I so loved. There are so many good associations with men & a few women of strength, discipline and courage; all traits of strong Bando men. I remember it all in good cheer and, I pray good health, wisdom and love with-in your families.
God blessings to all and your families and those you love,
