Joan ..I am heartbroken for the loss of your best friend, husband and father to your children. You have a wonderful family - a testimony to you both.
I am better for having known such an honorable gentle man... a rarity anymore!
I miss him & will remember him always.
Mission accomplished when he said 'aww geez' when we tried to make him laugh w/ our shenanigans ..(e.g. mike's tweeking & my off the wall humor).. and his smile lit up my day!
You have a warrior angel watching over you now & your memories of 67 years will keep you strong as you continue to be an inspiration of love to so many.
God Bless you .. Suzanne, Lisa, Elaine, Allison & Paul! My prayers goes out to all for peace & healing! Xxoo
