My dearest Jo ❤️
You will always have a special place in my heart and I’m so thankful to have had the opportunity to take care of you and had the chance to meet Anne + Bruce.
I will never forget all the times you blew me kisses while I left your room or when you always told me, “love ya kid” or when I’d sit in your room with you and we would watch America’s Funniest Videos, you sure loved that show. I always loved making you laugh especially that one time when you caught me dancing. You always were an early bird when it came to meals and of course your #1 choice was always a hamburger. I will forever cherish these memories and keep them close to my heart.
You’ll be deeply missed but I know you’re at peace.
Love always,

Anne Springer

My mother, Cheryl Ann Kirkwood Trahan, loved her uncle Joe. She would take us to visit him and Aunt Ellen when we vacationed in Spokane.

Miss him a lot! I called him at 8:30 am every weekend. Started on Sundays but his church schedule made us change to Sat. Talked about how we feel to how much yard work we had to do. Don't remember when we started this but I've lived in this house 45 yrs and was most (?) of that time.
For those who don't know, Joe was a cousin and spent time visiting us at Whitepine Creek, MT where I grew up! He liked to fish! Back then we called him "Carlie"!
