    Paul “Pablo” Kossak”s life is a complete success. Paul spent his whole life preparing the pathway to heaven. He has now completed the journey here on earth, but begins a new journey. He loves his family so much, he battled against an insurmountable illness to spend all the time he had with his family. We are all blessed to have shared some or all of our lives with Pablo and he will be remembered always.

    Dinner may be over, but don’t put your fork down, the best is yet to come. Love you Brother.
