  4. Anita,
    When I was a kid I remember many times going to your house, and Joe would be sitting on the couch always ready to great you as you came in. He was always kind and had a generous heart. Mark is very sorry to hear of the loss of Joe as well….they went to school together and Mark always had a soft spot in his heart for Joe.
