Deepest sympathy to the Kowalski family. Your Mom was a dear friend to my mom (Geri Jakubowicz) for many years working Holy Family bingos. And Denny worked with Mike for many years. May God bless you all.

We are very sorry to learn of the passing of your mom. It was always so inspiring to see her at the lake in her later years enjoying her family and riding on that pontoon boat! Our deepest condolences to the Kowalski family.
