Joe My Love, It has been such a long and lonely day, no one around working in the fields and all was so quiet, then I realized it was March 2 which means you have been gone ten months, you can't imagine how long 10 months is
without you. People keep saying it will get easier but I don't see that happening, last night it was Chamber Instalation Dinner and of course your name came up during the evening becasue
of something you had said or did, I'm not the only one that misses you. A day doesn't go by that someone says something about you. You cared a lot about people and they cared for you.
Today was Ben's Birthday, I talked to him and wished him a Happy Birthday,
they were at Disneyland for the day.
The family is doing alright, Jerry has
been doing great since his surgery he may be back to driving soon. Rest os the family is fine. Katie is graduating in May, we are all planning to go if at all possible. I love you and Mutt loves you she still thinks she should be in the truck if it leaves the yard, I try to take her a lot, makes me feel closer to you.Love you and miss you so much. Faye

Happy Birthday Dad. We missed you today on your 75th birthday, but we know you were with us. We all went to Fred's Bar-B-Q in honor of your special day. You even helped pay for dinner. Mom brought your gift certificate that we gave you last year for your birthday. Mom said she tried to get you to use it several times, but you told her you were saving it for something special. This was it. We all miss you so much, but we are trying hard to make you proud and we are working hard to make sure Mom is ok. We got this, Dad.
Love you so much.

Joe my love, we just went through another major time without you. Christmas was always your favorite holiday. We missed you so terribly but we all felt your presence with us. Katie was sitting on the couch and the stuffed bear that is only out at Christmas was on the couch behind her and it started playing and singing, and no one had touched it, "Katie said
grandma I feel grandpa is here", you were always playing jokes on her. All the family was able to be here, including Jerry who just had a major surgery a couple of weeks ago, but he traveled back and forth several times to be here with the rest of thbe family. Mack and his family came out in the afternoon as usual and we enjoyed them being here. No one sit in your chair, nothing was said about it but it seemed you were in your chair with us all day. My darling,there isn't a day goes by that one of us doesn't feel we have something to ask you to help us with I'm sure that will not change. You were certainly right on when you said we have a wonderful family,they are hurting without you but they are always trying to make sure I am doing alright. We love you and miss you more than anyone can imagine.Faye

Joe, my love, We had our first major holiday today without you physically being with us.It was not the same but you were there with us in all our thoughts, but as you had told us many times to carry on the family treditions
was always important. You were definitly with us in spirit and you would have been very proud of your family as you always were able to be.
We had a very heartwarming day and everyone was able to make this special day.Our family is awesome and you are still number 1 in their eyes. I love you so much and could never have believed how loney life could be. You are still my hero forever. Faye

Joe, "My Hero"
Six months have passed and nothing has got any easier - I miss you tremendously,every day I have a question I need help with, even though I know your answer would be "Why do you ask? you will do what you want anyway!!! I long to hear those words again. However, I am so thankful you are not in pain any longer.I'm sure your ears burn everyday when "Mutt" and
I talk about you! we love you, you are in our hearts forever Faye & Mutt

It's been three months since you left us Dad. I miss you so very much. You are thought of everyday. There have been so many times in the last 3 months where I have caught myself thinking about calling you to get your opinion on something. We all miss you so much. Some days are so hard, but I remember what you always told us...."Just do your very best. That's all I ask." I love you Dad

Joe, "Love of my life", the last 45 days has seemed like and eternity. I miss you
every day but today has been the longest and worse so far. I went to church and said a pray for both of us, just like you always ask me to do. It helped to go to church but the rest of the day has been so long and lonely. I miss you terribly and as always will love you forever. I am glad you are in Gods arms where there is no more pain. As always you are my "Hero". Faye
