Condolence from Tom Friend on July 16th, 2012 4:55 pm

Dear Sue,

I was sorry to read of Joe’s passing. It really got me to thinking about the days our group got together in each other’s homes when we were young. I enjoyed looking at photos in my album again. I recalled when Joe installed the siding on our house which was supplied by your dad’s company. It’s still in good shape. And I’m glad to have the stereo cabinet that Joe made. I’ve had to replace the stereo equipment, but the cabinet is still in the living room. I’m glad to have it as a reminder of Joe. If you’re inclined, I’d love to hear from you and catch up. I’m still in Erdenheim. Be assured that you’re in my thoughts and prayers, and please share my sentiments with your family.


Condolence from Susan Barta Rainey on July 27th, 2012 5:09 pm

Just heard about Joe’s passing from my Aunt MaryAnn. I’m so sorry. We’ll be thinking about you during this difficult time.

Susan, Chris, Samanatha, Megan and Molly Rainey
