Lifetime of Dreams....

Don and Susan Kotzea had many of the same dreams that we all have. To have someone to share their lives with, to work in a job that you enjoy and to own a home.

Together they have been able to achieve all of this and more.  Don and Susan are proud to say they have been married since 1996.

Don currently works at Kessler's and Susan works at the Lakewood Mall Contract and both enjoy their jobs.

Last year their dream to own a home came true as well.
