Diane,
I love the pictures of your life together. I laughed and cried. Joe always looked happy and enjoying life. I sorry we missed seeing him in Gulf Shores. I think about that a lot. We did not attend the funeral because of the virus, but our thoughts were with you and your family. I hope you find peace and comfort in the days to come.

Saddened to hear about Mr. Hafley. Its like part of the family is gone - our childhood family. Mom and I are thinking of you all - Diane, Cami, and "Goose". I just saw Mr. Hafley not too long ago, and it was so nice to just talk and catch up - it really surprised me that he even remembered my name after all these years LOL. We send our love and please know that time will heal the emptiness.
