    He and JoAnn are together again happy and healthy. I love the both of them so much. I have so many wonderful memories of them from when I was part of their family. I couldn't asked for a better Father and Mother-in-law. My prayers are with all of you. I wish I could have been there today for Grandpa's memorial service.
