Carly and Christina,

So sorry about your Dad. I still remember him speaking to my Political Science class when you girls were at Trinity. He was so entertaining and very funny. Besides you girls, I also taught your aunt Teri. Please extend my deepest sympathy to her as well.

My sincere condolences and prayers on behalf of myself and my family go out to the Crispino family. Joe will be missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. I'll personally miss the endless stories from the old days and I'm not quite sure how sports and current events will turn out without Joe around to voice his opinion. He was a genuine, honest and entertaining man.
