Dear Guy (Paul),
We heard about Joan from Leane. My memories of both of you as well as Merle and Mike go back to when I was the little cousin. You guys as well as your mom and dad were my idols on golden thrones. You all bring out fond memories of what family memories should be. I will remember these and cherish them always.
