Dear Cindy, Cheryl, Sandy and Families,
It seems like Albert was part of the Koch family for so many, many years. When we first met him he was very active running around to functions be it cards or dancing etc. As the years went by he slowed down a little but he always wanted to be surrounded by family... and he was. I know that my Mom and Dad (Ralph & Peg) and Mary Jo's Mom (Phyllis) will be happy to welcome him in the fold again but in a better place. My funniest memory was of Albert and Phyllis in their later years sitting around the Bon Fire in lawn chairs watching Jerry & Fritz shoot off fireworks. It was a beautiful July night and I heard them reminiscing how they both used to get around much easier and how in the Ol' days they could dance all night but their legs just didn't have it in them any more. Well just about then a "rogue" fire cracker shot right at them and you never saw 2 elderly people jump out of their chairs faster in your life!.. It whizzed so close by Phyliss's that her earring fell off. The look on their faces as they stood there trying to figure out what had just happened to them was PRICELESS. Once I knew they were okay I just couldn't stop laughing... and they joined in also. I don't think they even thought they could move that fast and it surprised them. Here's hoping they are in heaven sharing the moment with Ralph and Peg as I am now.
