Dee Dee, so sorry for your loss. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers!

We are so sorry for your loss. We are neighbors of Joe and have such good memories of Vicki. Mike loved to talk to Joe about his old cars they would spend hours just talking about all the vehicles they had had in the past. Joe came to see Mike after he became too weak to get out anymore. We haven't seen Joe in a long time but Mike is going to miss his friend. Our prayers are with your family for comfort. Mike and Phyllis
