Anita, Jody and extended family,
I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Joe. I am very grateful I was able to see him one last time at the family reunion this past summer. Our thoughts are with you and the entire family. I wish we could be there to celebrate his life - it sounds like a wonderful event he would enjoy. I am thankful he is at peace now. My fondest memories of him are making home-made ice cream and visiting your property by the lake. He will be missed.
Love Nicole, John, River and our dog Benny
