    Words hardly seem adequate at a time like this. When I spoke with Mom and Dad over the weekend, they told me that JoAnn had gone to Hospice.

    Please know that others share in your loss and lift you up in prayer. Your beloved wife and mother was truly a jewel. She was always pleasant, friendly and helpful to all. Her grace was quiet yet poignant. She will be deeply missed.

    I regret that Pris and I will be unable to be with you but know that we are with you in spirit and prayer.
