Dearest Brenda and extended family, On behalf of the entire side of the branch of the Kozik Descendents, my mother asked that I please express our deepest condolences-which I realize sounds silly. We are genuinely sorry. I am sad that I never personally had a chance to meet Bob. I do know that he was a good man and from his brief obituary here, I can see why you loved him. It's taken a couple of months for the news to reach us-in fact, we just found this out yesterday. I am at a loss for words. - Cousin Thom, Bern, my sister, brother, all the kids and their kids too I am sure

CandleBrenda. I am so sorry for your loss. He was such a great man. He will be missed dearly! I wish I could celebrate his life but unfortunately I wasn’t informed in time and I have to work and live far away. He will forever be in my heart and missed. I hope your doing okay, me and Wyatt love you. We are here if you need anything.
