    My deepest condolences to everyone in the Kuhn and the Poock families. So much of your family were part of the real core of Waterloo First United Methodist Church. Mozelle was a lady that knew what was needed for church potlucks. She always knew what was needed and how much it took to feed everyone. May you feel the arms of love and Christian strength that is shared with you all.

    Brian so sorry to see that your mom has died.  she was a very good friend of our family and will be missed, although i kind of lost touch the last few years when they moved from their home on Easton.

    Kurt, I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your stepmother. Looks like she had a big family. She did something right because you and your family have always been a model for what families and fathers should be. Hugs to you and all the Kuhn ladies.
