My thoughts and prayers are with you all as you remember the fond memories of you husband, father and grandfather. Joe was a wonderful person and I pray that he is now resting peaceful in the arms of our savior and Lord Jesus Christ. He fought a good fight and was a very courageous man.
May the Lord watch between me and thee while we are absent one from another. Until we meet again.
