It was a bit confusing when they would page “Walter Kozlowski” on the PA system at the school where the “other” Walter Kozlowski and I work. It is even more puzzling that the two of us bearing the same, not-so-common name could grow up and live much of our lives less than a mile from each and never have our paths cross.

The “other” Walter Kozlowski was a few years older than me and attended a different school, so that might be why did not meet until after our former parishes became part of Divine Redeemer Church in 1995. I didn’t get to know him that well, but you didn’t have to know him well to know what kind of person he was.
