On August 25th a flagpole and memorial were dedicated to Kyle's dad, Bill Kosmala. It stands at the soccer stadium where Kyle coaches.
He was a kind, generous man who loved his family and took particular joy in his grandchildren. I loved watching the twinkle in his eyes when he teased and joked around with the kids!
The announcer read a nice tribute to Bill and then right before the game, they played a recording of our national anthem that Grace played on the piano. She practiced for weeks and it sounded wonderful. We were so proud of her!
Despite the chilly weather, we were all happy to be there to remember and honor Kyle's dad in this special way. I feel like he is now a part of the soccer stadium that means so much to Kyle.
