    While Joe's passing saddens us all, we know his suffering is over and his eternal life has begun. We rememmber fondly Christmas 2006 in our home in Jacksonville with Joe, Sharon, Angie, Jason, Megan and Rick (yes Burl, you too). What a treat getting to know the Dunfees, sharing food, drink and laughter. What a fitting end the next day or so as the family attended the movie "We Are Marshall". Yes sir, Joe, "You Are Marshall "! Much love to you all, Penny and Harry Lee
