Unfortunately, I did not have an opportunity to meet Joseph, but I have been a friend of his son, Joe, for many years. In the past few months, Joe and I have shared similar circumstances caring for our fathers, and it is clear to me that Joseph was in good hands, and I know Joe was glad his father was here, in Arizona.

It's clear to me that Joseph and Florence must have done right by their children, for Joe is, truly, one of the finest men I know.

I am genuinely sorry for the loss of your father, Joe. Remember that we are here for you, and please convey my condolences to Linda and Robert, as well.

Empathy and peace for you, good friend,

Edward Marshall
