Dear Peg, Maureen, Meg, and Joe, We are deeply saddened at the passing of our friend, Joe. You have our deepest sympathy. We will always remember the fun we had traveling through the Shenandoah Valley and the good times we had driving the various county "letter" roads in Wisconsin trying to complete the alphabet or spell out words. We also greatly enjoyed being invited to your family picnics. Joe was a very special friend, and he and your family will always be very dear to us. You are in our thoughts and prayers. May God's choicest blessings and special happy memories comfort you. Hugs and Love. Wally and Pam
