We are so sorry about the passing of Uncle Joe.
So many wonderful memories over the years - from traveling to the farm for summer holidays as kids, to our visits in Weyburn - I felt like a member of the family.
Always looked forward to the visits and the phone chats Uncle Joe and I would have. Your dad had a special warmth and spirit that will be forever in our hearts.
Our prayers and deepest sympathy is with all of you.
God Bless
