Back in the 70s my parents, Wilbur and Velma Hostetler lived on Carlton in Elkhart next door to the Koshys. We knew Accamma as Becky. I also knew Thom at work at Miles Laboratories. I tried to keep up with Thom and Becky and it was a loss when Thom died in 2003. Later on I also lost track of Becky. It is with sadness that I noted Accamma’s passing. I wish all her family and friends condolence in this loss. Gordon Hostetler
