WE miss you Joe
Joe, We had our high school reunion back in September of 2001.and it is our hope that you felt our grief, our humble respect, and our love. All of a sudden, we are in a new war, and now our children go forth to fight new enemies. Our children: the cycle continues, but we do not forget you, or your sacrifices, Joe. May you be at peace, that wonderful smile of yours forever etched in my memory. Karen Molt, class of 66 Sunday, April 21, 2002
