To my father in law Joe,

I know you've never met me, but thank you for giving me the greatest gift a girl could ever receive, your son. I know that you haven't met Eric or the kids either, but I know how proud you are of all of us, looking down from Heaven. I feel your smiles every day. You are loved by all of us. Until we meet someday,


06 Apr 2007

Dear Joe,
What a beautiful man you were.
What a beautiful legacy you have left us.
I will always remember you
for the joy you brought into our lives.
You are my most beloved brother in law!

Till we meet again.
