So sorry to hear of the loss of your father Joe. Your Mom & Dad and family were a part of so many of our fond childhood memories. We had some good times together. My parents Ray & Mary Ellen were the best of friends with your parents and have always had a special bond with them. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
