Dear Butch, Allan and Jo Lynn, I am so sorry to hear about the death of your Dad. It is fortunate that he lived to be 88 years old. However, no matter at what age one of our parents dies, it is traumatic. My thoughts are with you. Your cousin, Margie

Dear Cousins,

I am sorry I have not been able to make it to the funeral home to pay my respects to Uncle Vince.

One thought I remember is, when I was really young, there was a bowling alley, where the gas station now resides, by St.Michaels church.

Uncle Vince rode the Wheeling Police motorcycle.

Parking was very limited. So there was a place to park on the bowling alley property….a not so legal parking space…many people parked there illegally. We went to Sunday mass. Then we all came out of church. There was a ticket on my parents car. from: Uncle Vince gave my mother His sister a ticket! Hahaha!!!

It made my day!

May your days ahead comfort you and help heal your ourloss.

Prayers 2U,

May God Bless Our Family.

…love, Sarita

I would like to offer my deepest sympathy to the Vince Kloss family. I knew Vince not only as a police officer but as a brother of FOP Lodge #38. Vince’s contributions to the community as a police officer will not be forgotten. May God bless you and give you strength.
