My prayers are with you Ms. Tutor. I worked for Joe and Billy for a few years and can honestly say Joe gave me the work ethic that I carry today. I respected him as a man and will always remember him and you. I still have that little bible verse book you gave me on my last day with you. And sometimes around lunch time i miss the homemade goodies you sent with us on the jobs. I hold my head high today only cause I was blessed to be part of his world for just a short time.

Please pray for my mother. She lost her true love & best friend today after 55 1/2 years of marriage. She was married to one of the finest humans that has ever been placed on earth by God. He always had a joke, will to lift a helping hand to others and was totally in love with his wife. I never heard him say a bad word about anyone. He was a hard working, a man of integrity, high morals and a genearl love for people.

He is so happy in heaven and we know that he fought to stay with my mother.

I will always miss my father; I wanted to marry him when I was a little girl not understanding what that meant. He touched so many lives in the time he had on earth that we do not even know about.

I have never met anyone that could messure up to him in my eyes.

God got a good man today. He was instantly happy healthy and has no more pain.

He is in the arms of the angels.

Your Loving Daughter
