Tom, Patty, Marianne, and the rest of the family,

So sorry to hear about Cousin Emil. I'm so glad that he came to our Kovalsky reunion in 2019 and that he enjoyed himself. All of you are in our thoughts and prayers.

With Deepest Sympathy, Betty Ann (Snyder) and Wayne Zackal

My thoughts and prayers are with you. Emil was a very nice man. He had a heart of gold and a smile that would light up the room. I have known him for over forty years. Not once did i ever see him mad, or say anything bad about anyone.. There aren’t many like him. I know he’ll be up there in heaven golfing. That’s what he enjoyed.
