Our condolences to you Helen, Melissa, Johnathan, William, Elizabeth, and Chris. Joe was the first person to speak to Jon after he started school here in the 8th grade. Not surprising, of course, because that was Joe--always friendly and kind. He will be missed.
Sending our love,
Laura and Jon Pickering-Polstra
