"Take care of yourselves and each other, and always remember my motto:
Itís ok to work hard, as long as you play harder."

Joe. I still think of what happened to you. I still remember standing on your dock after the funeral. Looking at the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen. Thanks for giving that to me and all of your close friends and family. I stood there asking myself why would God let this happen? The best way I've learned to explain the loss of such great life is this.

If you go to a flower garden and you can only pick one, you are going to pick the most well rounded and nicely colored flower. I know that when God chose you to take home, he picked the nicest flower he saw.

Katie my heart still goes out to you and your family. God bless all of you.
