June and Family,
I am praying for you all as you go through this time - praying today, tomorrow and for the weeks, months and years to come. Joe was such a sweet young man and I know he will be missed tremendously. Love to you all! I wish I was close enough to be there and give you a hug, but do know I love you and am praying for you!
