Shock and then great joy and evoked in the Prague Zoo the news of an unexpected generous gift. “I received a report that based on a resolution of the District Court for Prague 10 acquired by the Prague Zoo inherited from Mrs. J. Ř. assets in the amount of CZK 16,769,398. It’s partly about cash, partly about real estate, “said Miroslav Bobek, the zoo’s director, last week.
A few days later, the director learned more about the mysterious gifts – to his surprise, he received a message from two of the deceased woman’s girlfriends. Their acquaintances pointed out the mention of the gift that the Prague Zoo shared on social networks. “With Mrs. Ř. we formed an inseparable trinity for 50 years, we were three lifelong soul mates. For the last two years, Mrs. Ř. seriously ill and because she had no relatives, we went through the whole calvary with her and accompanied her to the last moments, “the ladies describe in their letter.
“The last month of her life, when she knew her life was coming to an end, she began to consider what to do with the property that would remain after her. She has been going to the Prague Zoo all her life to ‘vent negative thinking’, as she said, so she logically came to the decision to bequeath all the property to the zoo, ”Explain the women. According to them, it was complicated to arrange all the requisites – everything could only be done when the sick woman was in the hospital. The notaries allegedly drove there to her, they also stated that they were very happy that everything worked out.
“We are writing to thank you for mentioning her, that her generous gift did not go unnoticed. The discussion below the article is emotionally very difficult to read, but at the same time it is in a way a difficult feeling of satisfaction. If J. saw it, she would certainly be happy that she did a good deed and people understand it that way, “The report also states.
The memory of a generous gift
The women also asked the director if there could be a mention of her generous gift in the zoo and how great a person J. Ř. was. “Mrs. Ř. she never endured any applause or expressions of thanks, but we are convinced that this would really please her, “said the ladies signed JS from Prague 9 and DC from Prague 3.
Bobek published a letter from women with their permission on Facebook. “On the reference of Mrs. J. Ř. in the relevant area we will certainly point out. We are starting to put together ideas on how to approach this reminder, “added Bobek.
This is far from the only generous gift the zoo has received from its loyal visitors. For example, just a few days after Bobek announced that the zoo had received a donation of 17 million, another supporter came in person with the money. “A lady and a friend came to our information center and brought a six-digit amount in banknotes as a gift for the zoo in a purse,“Bobek told Blesk earlier. Her story was similar to the previous woman – she has no relatives, she likes the zoo, she often visits her, so she decided to give her what she has. “We wrote everything down and I accepted the cash,” the director added. None of the women mentioned the condition on how the funds should be used.
