Carol, Tracey & Mickey ~ I send my heartfelt condolences to you and all your extended family. My memories of Joe are fond and make me laugh. Joe ~ first, let me apologize for tearing up a hole in your driveway 25+ years ago that horrible winter day.....I think I avoided you for a month after that. And yes, I probably did have something to do with emptying your keg in the basement fridge......a couple times...... and YES.....you won the contest of your little dogs' loyalty when you and I called them to see who they would go to (like I even had a chance !).....BUT..........!!! I bet you never found out I shaved my legs in your kitchen sink at camp !!!! Hahahaha !!!
I always picture Joe laughing........not really sure if it was "with" me or "at" me, and I remembered to get the hell out of the way when he was mad, (heehee.)
I always felt welcome and a part of your family back in those days, whether at your home on Tusca or at camp, and I thank you for those great memories.
May you rest in peace Joe.

Carol, Tracey, Mickey and family ~ I pray for your peace and blessings of the good memories he left with you and pray that each day moving on will become a little easier to bare.
Love, Cathy Kreuscher (Munchkin)
