Your dad had such a love for music and gave much enjoyment to those that he loved to play for through the years. I am lucky enough to have been one of them. I will never forget how he had my dad dancing in our garage. You and your family are in my thoughts and have my sympathy.

I brought his accordian to the extended care center a month ago.He played a set in the room with the door open.When he finished applause and cheers came down the hall from the other rooms.A nurse came in the room with tears in her eyes.She told Dad thank you. Her Mother played the accordian.She had died several years ago and brought back fond memories.Dad smiled and broke into The Red Raven Polka.The Polka King has left the building.

Ken & Heidi & entire Kalz family, Karen & I are so very sorry to hear of your loss. Sounds as if he had a full and rewarding life. Although I never had the pleasure of meeting him Ken, just reading all the wonderful things being said I can certainly see where you got your fine qualities. We're keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

Ken and Heidi and Kalz Family, My prayers and thoughts are with you at this time. What a great legacy your father leaves behind. Ken, thanks for putting a trip together to the Packers, where I got the chance to meet your DAD and experience some great polka music.....on three different accordians. May God continue to Bless you and the family.

Be sure to play "The Red Raven Polka" where you are. That one always gets them dancing. You'll be missed but not forgotten. Love you Dad! Dennis, Yvonne & Madison Kalz
