Ms. Mary. Mr. Cos was very special to us. We have known him since we opened and was a happy sweet man. We are very happy to have known a happy, outgoing and carrying man. When we wouldn't see him come in we all asked eachother. "Have you seen Mr. Cos?"
He was part of us. He will be truly missed and was loved by us. Our condolences to you and the family.
