To the entire family, I am so sorry I did not know about this earlier. I loved your mother/grandmother a lot. I will never forget the times we spent making thanksgiving dinner, and then sharing with your family. She was truly a wonderful person and I am sad for your loss. It is a little late, but all of you are in my thoughts and prayers. Miss you all.
The Kotz family are respected Polish members of our community and deserve admiration and comfort on the loss of matriarch Diane Kotz. May God bless us all. Pat Borninski Albee and Lynn Albee
Aunt Dorothy was very good to me when I was a child and I am glad that I was able to share this with you Ron last month. Also, I graduated from Felician Academy in 1957. Diane, I still remember you visiting us with your mother in Sault Ste Marie when we lived there. My prayers are for all of Aunt Dorothy's family to be at peace knowing that she is with God now. May God bless you all. Love, Joan Dreger
To Ron and the family. My condolences to all of you at this time of sorrow. Ron, I remember your mother and father very well from the 1970's and 80's. Those were good days with good times and great memories. May she and all of you be at peace.
