  • Dear Helen, Walt, Molly and Family,

    With Walter’s marriage to Molly we learned what a warm, witty, caring person Joe was. We were fortunate to be included in the many family gatherings –- a mutual admiration society that enjoyed for many years the growth and maturity of four magnificent grandchildren. He will be missed but not forgotten. God bless!
