Last night we tragically lost a
member of our family, Mike Kubal,
who died from complications after
a motor vehicle accident. The
news of his death found us
unprepared. We shall miss Mike
greatly.

We offer our deepest sympathy to
Kubal’s family, friends and co-
workers, who could not have
prepared for their sudden loss.
We ask all of you to keep Mike in
your thoughts and prays.

This is a difficult time for all
of us.
