Dear Koenig family,
Our sympathy go's to the whole family, I have great memories of going to your home as a young boy and playing with Kevin, all the brother would be at our home too on 6th street. I can remember my father cutting our hair and then cutting the Koenig kids hair too.
Both your father and mother were very kind to us too, my God now give James rest in heaven.
My mother is still living on the old family home and dong very well at 93, she sure remembers you all too, Danny and Darin for sure as they were also at our home any times, with my brother Mike and my sisters.

God Bless you all,

Paul K. Geers

One of the finest men I have ever known. He was one if not the best friend my father ever had in his life time. It is and was a blessing to have known this gentleman. I grew up around the entire family and Jim. May God bless him and welcome him home. RIP Jim. You will be missed. I shall never forget you in my life time.
