I am saddened to hear about the loss of your father. Although I only had some brief moments visiting Joe, I thoroughly enjoyed his conversations that he would share about his life. Such an interesting man that leaves a great legacy. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family during this difficult time.

You were like a father to me Dad for 30 years and I can't believe you are gone. I will miss hearing your voice on the other end of the phone. Rest in Peace with Mom. I love you.

Thank you for being a wonderful and supportive grandfather. Even though we've physically been togther only a few times, you always asked how I was and tried to take care of me best you could. I'm sorry we couldn't see each other more, but I am so happy I was able to see you this past summer. I have had so much respect for you even though I never really said it. You have given me insight on a lot of things such as the military. I know how much you wanted me to do it and I will not disappoint you. I know you're in a better place now, thank you for being there as much as you were able to. I love you, rest in peace.

So much I want to say but, I will keep it short. Thank you for being a wonderful Dad to your children. An awesome Grandpa to your grandchildren. And a "no beat around the bush" father in law to me. I wish we lived closer to have shared more time together. And if I never told you before, I admired you for many reason and had a great respect for you. Thank you and Grandma Sieger for always making me and Billy feel loved. You will truly be missed and thought about every day. You left us too soon. xoxoxo
