Joe and Family I was very sorry to hear of the loss of the Patriarch of your family. I always felt welcomed when I came out to visit and when we stopped at your parents for a short visit or sometimes a meal. I know he will be sorely missed but his spirit will live in you all forever. May God Bless and Keep him. You will all be in our prayers.
