So sorry to hear of the loss of your father. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
I always enjoyed the chats we would have when we would see each other at the Post office.

DeWitt Family,
It is likely none of Joe's children know who I am but I grew up in McHenry and Joe was a long time friend, as is Loretta. You will miss your father immensely I am sure, but take solace in all the memories you have created along the way. I will keep you in my thoughts an prayers.
