Joe and family you have our deepest condolences on the passing of your Dad!!Peace

Dearest John, you were a wonderful dad and I have so many great memories from over the past 35 years. You always said that I was you favorite daughter~in~law even though we both know that I'm your only daughter~in~ law! You always made me smile and your gentle ways and love of nature were infectious. You will forever hold a special place in my heart and will be missed so much by so many of us left behind. Until we meet again dad. I love you. ❤
