    Batch and I are so sorry for your loss, our prayers go out to all of you. We wish we could be with you at this time but Batch just got out of the hospital and is too weak to be left alone. He is slowly recovering from a serious Blood infection.

    Love to all of you,
    Joanne Batchelder

Send your condolences.
