Dear Christine, Monica, Lauren and The Salak Family,
Ric and I were deeply saddened to hear of Kurt's passing. We had known Kurt for many years as we were also from Pottsville and later the Orwigsburg area. Ric and Kurt made great memories when they coached the girls basketball teams together during their middle school years<3<3.
May you all find comfort and peace in the future at this very difficult time.
Thinking of you.
With Deepest Sympathy,
Brenda and Ric Seitzinger
