Elaine and I were on the cruise ship in Hawaii when Joe and Lois got married. It was great fun to be with them and get to know Lois. Elaine thinks she remembers that date as 1.23.4 or 1/23/2004.

Joe was a great guy. Always friendly and wantedd to know about my family.

I am saddened by his death. I did not see Joe on a regular basis, but would run into him a few times a year and we always had a nice chat.

May God grant his family peace, comfort and strength in the days ahead.
