Local Condolences: Remembering Katherine Aldrich, Daniel Ko and more

With the holidays upon us, it seems only appropriate to deliver our local condolences to remember the local families who are celebrating the New Year for the first time without a loved one.

But it is our hope in celebrating those who have passed, that we push to laugh and live in their memories this year.

All notices can be found at www.PixleyFuneral.com and www.ModetzFuneralHomes.com, through an emailing service.

If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact us at RochesterMediaLLC@gmail.com or JenBucciarelli@gmail.com.
