    What a great picture of Uncle Joe! We were very blessed to grow up with you and Uncle Joe as such a big part of our lives. I am guessing that he is up there with Granny and the whole gang having a family reunion! (I think Tommy -cat is there too) Love you, and keeping you in prayer. Love, Peggy
