Dearest Tim and Kim. I am heartbroken that I will not be able to visit with you this weekend. I miss both of you very much.

I cried when I heard of Jo Jo's passing. I cried for Jo Jo and I cried for you and I cried for my own family and parents.

Jo Jo was always getting on me about when was I going to get married. I recall a very specific time we were riding in the car with her and she said "Joe, you need to get married." I asked "why is that?" She said "I know all about marriage. As a matter of fact I'm an expert on it." I asked "what makes you an expert?" She replied "Because I've been married three times, I know all about it."

Every time I have thought of that conversation over years it has made me smile and laugh.

I love the Green family. God bless you and keep you until we see each other again.
