Carol,
Please accept our apology for missing the viewing and the funeral of Joe. We were shocked when we got the news, and didn’t get the news until after the funeral. When I last talked with Joe, he mentioned he had some problems, but I thought they had been resolved. I am happy that he got to the 50th graduation reunion, and trust that you got pictures from the evening events. Although Joe and I didn’t get together much, we were friends. Year before last, he took Lucy and me picking blueberries at Geyers on 219. He locked his keys in his truck and had to call Texas to have it opened by satellite. He seemed to enjoy and appreciate the new technology. And last year at the reunion, he told me that he was at DDs Bakery for breakfast and held the door for a group of people as he was leaving that morning. It wasn’t until he arrived at the reunion that he realized he had held the door for his high school classmates. They didn’t recognize him and he didn’t recognize them. Please accept our condolences on the loss of your husband, our friend. May God bless you.

Aunt Clara, Carol, Dean, Rich, Jill, and family members,
We are greatly saddened and stunned to learn of Joey’s sudden passing. Sally M. had sent us a message that day, but I belatedly didn’t see it until last night. We are truly sorry for not having responded sooner. It seems like only a short time ago that we, with daughter Lauren and joined by Mom, were there visiting. We cherish that last get together, as we do others and very fondly recall Joey modeling his “biker” wig, which made him look the mirror image of Willie Nelson. Again, we offer our most heartfelt condolences.

Wayne and Wai Ehrensberger
