Janice, Paula and Joey,

Connie and I were deeply saddened to learn of your Dad’s passing. Although I had not seen Uncle Joe in many years I shall always remember him as a happy, vibrant man who loved people and enjoyed life. He and Mom were so much alike and she loved him dearly. It is comforting to me to know that they are together again. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Love, Gary & Connie
