My deepest condolences to all of Mrs. Bosch’s family. I have so many fond memories of the gathering of friends at my parents’ home. The Bosch family was always there. In fact, it wasn’t a party without them. Mr. and Mrs. Bosch did a great job as parents and they always treated me as part of the family. It meant a lot to me.
