    So many memories for our two families. I have known “Tucker” all of my life, and all of you since the day you were born too. I will miss Joe as I do Jeannette. Our two families sure have had some fun times and lots and lots of memories. I wish I could have been there for you today but my duties were at home and both of us have just gotten over being sick. Tucker and Jeannette are together once again. Prayers love and hugs.
