    Jen and Zach, we are so sorry for your loss. We were happy to have had a chance to meet your father/grandfather and discuss the relative merits of stuffed mushrooms. 🙂 The care and attention you paid to him in his final months is a testament to your deep love for him, and an example to us all. May God comfort you with the promise of the resurrection through His Son, Jesus Christ.

    In Christian love,
    Doug & Sonja

    Please accept Linda’s and my deepest condolences on Joe’s passing. He was a good friend and as he would say “Good People”. I am sorry, but our health issues at present prevent either of us from attending the wake.
