Dear Jan and Mark,
Since Lee told me of this tragic event I have not been able to get the thought of this horrible loss out of my mind. He was such a talented your man and so loved by his family; I know you all are missing him already. I pray that you feel the loving embrace of Jesus Christ over the next several days, and can celebrate his life during this grieving time.
It's will deep sadness that I write this message,

Erin and family - You are all in my prayers. No words suffice to comfort - only God can do that, and comfort will eventually be found i believe. Bless you all and Joe and Will.
