Valentine’s Day is two days away and for some of you, your valentine is no longer here. This Sunday we are offering a community opportunity to Share Your Heart and honor your valentine. Please join us for "Remembering with Love," a ceremony honoring your loved one who died and was cared for by Koch Funeral Home in 2017.  After a loss, part of healing is remembering the person who died. Your love lives on and will be recognized as we share a tribute video followed by a candle lighting, name reading ceremony and moment of silence.  Light refreshments will be served.

Date:               February 18, 2018
Time:               3:00 pm
Location:        Mountain View Country Club
                          100 Elks Club Road, Boalsburg, PA 16827

RSVP:   Please RSVP by calling 814-404-0546 or by visiting the Koch Funeral Home Facebook page by Wednesday, February 14. Space is limited. If we don't have your loved one's image, please send a digital copy along with your RSVP and include the number of family members that will be attending the ceremony.
