Dear Joe,

I'm so sorry we haven't been in touch for some time. You were so important to me when I was active in Highland Township activities and politics. You were my mentor and supporting friend. I admired your gentle manner and your ability to say something negative in a very positive way and your willingness to hear anyone who came to a meeting at the Township Hall. I have missed our talks and your help in resolving issues at the Township. You have been an example to this community and in your life of a truly dedicated and honest man.

Dear Barancek Family,
May you be comforted reminiscing about all the things you did with your Dad and Grandfather. He was a wonderful man and I and this entire community will miss him dearly. God Bless you All.

Sincerely, Sue Mysliwiec
