"Well dad, it's been 4 years since i last saw you, i last spoke to you, i last held your hand, and i had to say goodbye. I am so happy I was able to see you and you were able to see junior before you left. I can honestly say I miss you more and more every day. I miss your hugs, our talks, laughs, cries, and great conversations. I should probably just say I miss everything and just wish you were here. I am hoping your taking great care of little Joey, grandma, granpa, aunt Cathy, as well as anyone near that needs it. I love you Dad! And I always will. I hope you know that."

"I was lucky to have the opportunity to meet Papa Joe on visits with Sherman and Lisa. His eyes would light up the moment they walked in the door. He immediately made me feel comfortable. Papa Joe never complained about his illness. He was too busy joking and I will never forget his adorable laugh. Papa Joe loved the Yankees. I also learned that he was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying hunting,with a love of Horses. I was impressed to learn that he was a master mechanic. I remembered hearing about his beloved hunting beagles. He was a talented man who was loved and shared love. I wish he had more time but watching him interact with Sherman and Lisa and conversing with him showed me that he was very interesting but also had lived quite an interesting life and he really did not seem to want anything but to cherish the time he was able to spend with his children for as long as possible.    - Jessica Renz"

"I can remember hunting with my father a long time ago in vermont. It was him and  me and his favorite dogs that he hunted with and of course we caught a few rabbit's. So later on that night we sat down and ate dinner and  he asked how was dinner. I said that the rice and chop meat was really good. Come to find out that I was only partially right about the ingredients. It wasn't chop meat it was the Easter bunny. So that was my first experience with eating rabbits. Yummy!!!!"

The poem reads:

A Brothers Love
A Brother is a special gift
Sent from God above
For us to cherish daily
And fill them up with love
In the beauty of a brother
It's so plain and easy to see
Just how wonderful they make your life
And how they were meant to be
Now what is it that makes a brother
It's quite difficult to say
Except he is the reason
Why your sun shines everyday

Sorry I am late, I look at your picture everyday and think of all the time lost, I miss you more and more everyday. I know you are in a good place with mom and dad, but I am KAREN, after all, and I want more time with brother....I love you......"

"On the anniversary of your death I share this poem which sums it up...

I thought of you with love today but that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday and days before that too,

I think of you in silence I often speak your name
All I have are memories and your picture in a frame

Your memory is my keepsake with which I'll never part
God has you in His keeping I have you in my heart.

May you rest in peace, love and freedom.  Love, Your favorite Brat"
