    To his family, of which I am a very small and distant part…

    May you all be honored to have had a man so rich in experience and generosity raise his family as he did. In your grief and sadness, know that he’s always with you, as memories of him will certainly prove. Be proud to have such a legacy such as his be the guiding principles of your lives well lived.

    Gladys, Douglas, and Gloria, please know that I wished I knew him better, and that I could have come to pay my respects.

    With Love, Cousin Joseph
    May God Bless you all
