Sending our deepest sympathy in the loss of my first-cousin Tim. He was nine years younger than me but I still remember him as this cute little blonde- haired child running around trying to keep us with us older ones when we got together.
To the immediate family...So sorry for your loss....he was way too young.
My husband and I are unable to make the funeral...but send our love. You are all in our hearts and prayers

My story....about 10 years ago my husband and I were visiting friends who lived in Ft. Wayne and attended St. Charles Parish as we were this particular Sunday. I spotted Tim on the right side of the church and attempted to reach him after church but he was quick to leave and I didn't connect with him. I always regretted this moment!!
Sincerely ...Bernice (Koesters) Hello to Barb!

While I never had the honor of meeting Mr. Koesters personally, I have grown to know him through the friendship of his son, Scott. Given the influence of a Dad on his Son, I can truly say, "What a great man" given the kind of man Scott has become. Our love and prayers go out to the family.
