Carol & Tommy - It is so sad to hear of Joe's passing. He has always been such a wonderful friend to my Dad in Florida! They talked on the phone frequently. Joe was a kind and caring person and he will be sadly missed. Thank you, God, for his life on this earth and God Bless you all.

Carol, my deepest condolences to you and your family.

My sincere condolences on the loss of your father, Carol. He was a remarkable man. I still remember him dropping that skunk in one shot at 100 yards from the upstairs window at his house. Good corrected eyesight and a steady hand while nearing 80 years of age then -- good qualifications for a jeweler.

Carol, I wish, for you and your family, consolation in the many memories created in the span of your father's life. How wonderful that you had him for so many years.
