I do remember Mr. and Mrs. Kowalczyk very well as I was a friend of their son Jim and would visit quite often back in the mid to late 70's. Jim's parents were very friendly and always made me feel welcome.
My condolences Tom with the best regards,

Elaine, Tom, and families, so very sorry to hear of your Moms passing. My Mom(Nancy Geiss) sends her heartfelt sympathy. They were very close growing up together. I think of her every Easter and Christmas when I pull out her recipe to make the Polish Sweet Bread. Prayers for comfort and peace.
