Even though we are far away and cannot be there with the family, please know that we are with you in our thoughts and prayers. Joe "Dad" was instrumental in assisting me as I became a Shriner.
Some of our fondest memories are of the "First Friday" suppers and all of the foods that we deep fried.
We will miss you Joe bless you on your journeys with the Lord from this day forward. Hope there is a deep fryer in heaven.
Bob and Vivian Beauchamp
