    John…as I told you before, her love to you and your families love for her never goes away. The say that life is a temporary stop to eternity. The children provide the physical immortality of the 2 of you ( the Kosich’s). I am so sorry but am glad God graced you and Kris with this gift uniting your 2 spirits. The sadness now will show you the many people whose lives you two touched and they will touch you back. We will always be there for you. You have been a great friend to me. I have a picture I sent to you of my grandchildren smiling at a Bulls game which is imprinted in my mind. I sent it to you that very night. The kids asked me who the nice man is who gave us this night. I told them it was you John and promised them they will meet you one day. Ones life touches another and we are all connected.

    To John, her children and family I am truly sorry for this loss. I can’t remember a time with Kris that wasn’t full of laughter and happiness. I wish I could give you a hug in person but sending my love and prayers across the miles.
