Condolences

I remember fondly your family and the friendship our parents and family shared.... My dad, Ed Kiczek sold your parents the farm you owned at the corner of Williams and Camp Rds in Homerville Ohio. My sister was a classmate of my sister Pat Kiczek… Laurie you were in my class of 71 at Black River HS... Your family attended St Stephens church where we continue to be members. Your parents often invited Mom and Dad over to play cards at your house... All good memories of a good family. I am sorry to learn of Mr Kochs passing. Please know we will keep your family in our thoughts and prayers.

So very sorry for your loss. Hugs and prayers offered to all the Koch's.
