Dear Donna and Family, I was so sorry to read about the death of your beloved Joe. I remember family gatherings as
our children were growing up -- graduation party, weddings and just get-togethers. The last one was when Jennie
was married, and our three girls were able to attend. So much fun to be with you all. Joe was the ultimate family
man and was so proud of you all. I and all of my family pray that God's loving arms will enfold you and bring you
comfort and peace. God Bless, Jackie Lescott and Family

My brother Joe loved " Family " -- his wife Donna and children Joe and Jennifer were the beloved anchors of his life. Joe was a loving support to our parents - Joseph and Jennie Swider- they loved that he "stopped by after work " to eat, talk, and fix what needed fixed in their home . My brother was a dignified man - he maintained this dignity and personal pride even during his long and challenging attempts at recovery .
