Dearest Joe and family,

You and the entire family are in the the "Scrubs'" hearts and thoughts as you struggle through such grief. There are no words to express, but please know many of your dearest friends from happier days are thinking of you and are here for you during this very difficult loss. Always here if you need to talk. Praying for you, my friend, and for your beloved families from both sides.

Treasure the memories...the photos are from Joe and Jane's home, Christmas, 1992.

With heartfelt love and sympathy,
