Dear Jean, Jan, and other family members..... your Step Dad, brother, Grandpa and Great Grandpa was a ''peach''!!!  It was always a pleasure for me (and a real ''spirit lifter'' for him) when he would take the time of day to say hello.  Yes, he seem to always wear an ''ornery'' grin but he was a very interesting and pleasant guy to visit with...and like so many, I''ll miss that.  Your Mom and him sure seemed to be a ''good match'' but now, only their memories remain to help lift our spirits. May they (their memories) and the peace of God help you survive this most difficult time in your lives.  With my sympathy, Jim Hooker, Mesa, Arizona.

My heart is an open book but my mind fails to let me put down what I feel. Please know that your Mother and Joe were so special to me .Was down to see him last thursday and we had such a nice visit .but anyway what I feel isn''t important . I want you Jan and Jean and the girls to know that you are in my thoughts,. my prayers. With deepest sympathy. Joyce
