Dad, you always were and always will continue to be my inspiration, my hero, and my role model. Thank you for teaching me to love like Christ loves us. I can’t wait to see you in heaven again one day. Until then, continue to watch over us and send those pennies on tails from heaven to let us know you’re thinking of us. I love you always.

I love you brother Joe. I will always remember your kind, tender, and forgiving heart for everyone. I'm selfishly sad for your loss, but so happy for the eternal healing that you received in heaven. You will stay in my ❤ until we meet again . . . .
