I attended elementary school and high school with Joe. Although, Ihave not seen him since high school, he was a good friend and I have fond memories of your mother and father. They both seemed to work so in raising a fine family. I am sure you are all so proud of your parents and family. sincerely, John crowling

I was friends with Jane & Valerie in the 60’s high school and had the pleasure and honor of knowing your mom and dad. They were there to help me out when I was having a family situation. I was saddened to read of your moms passing. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. Even though many years have passed I remember her as being a kind and loving person. May God Bless you at this sad time in your life.
