Dad, I miss you every moment of every day. You were and continue to be my hero, my best friend and the best father anyone could ever ask for. I'll do my best every day to be my best and to be a good and respectful person, just like you taught me. The world is so much different without you here but we will live on through you everyday.

With all my love, your daughter, Janice.

Joe graduated with me and while we weren't close I valued our friendship. I'm so sorry to hear of his passing. My some rest condolences. I thought maybe he had gotten sicker since I hadn't heard from him for a long time. You will be missed my friend. Rest easy.

Although Joe was my 1st cousin, we always considered ourselves brothers. I loved him as a brother, and he was my best friend, I will miss him dearly.
