    Dearest Koceja Family:
    There are no words to take away the loss feeling you are all experiencing but there is faith, love and spirituality that will get all you through this time of loss. I had not see Kathy for a long time but felt close to her as Maribeth kept me apprised of all Koceja functions and excitement, and excitement you all do provide well:) Always a laughter not far away. I remember as a youngster how kind and giving Kathy treated me as well as all Maribeths friends. Kathy is in a beautiful peaceful pain free place now with the God, Your Parents and Nick.
    You are all in my prayers during this difficult time and Our Great Creator will find peace for all of you.
    All my love thoughts and prayers.

    Dear Dave, I am writing to express my deep sorrow over the loss of your beloved sister, Kathleen. In Isaiah 55:8, God says, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts; neither are my ways your ways…” And though your family is in mourning the Lord has promised never to leave you nor forsake you (Deut. 31:8). Be comforted in knowing that your sister is at this moment, rejoicing in the very presence of Jesus. You and your family are in my prayers.
