Dear Ray, Jeff and Kevin, I am so sorry to read about your mother. Maybe you recall that your father was at Shepherd of the Valley, next door to my father, Samuel Joseph, back in late 2011.

Now I am so sorry to read about your mother. God bless her and your father. You have my deepest sympathies. Kindest regards, Darrel Joseph
