  5. I can’t believe myDad is gone… it seems like a nightmare I can’t wake up from. Like at any minute my phone will ring and ill hear my Dad saying “hey Roo”. I am just grateful that I was able to tell him that he was my hero. That I was always proud of my Dad.. ever so quick to tell my friends about my Dads silly antics, and share his funny jokes. I don’t believe I have ever laughed as hard with anyone as I used to wth Dad. I miss you already Dad. Mom (Bobbie) thankyou for taking such good care of my Dad. You are the best.

  6. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I have a lot of fun memories with Joe. One of which he let me ride his race bike from the pits to the track, I remember being so scared not to crash it , because I was riding it side saddle style like joe used to do. I made it to the track with the bike in one piece, passed the bike to joe, where he went on to win. I was so proud of him for winning and was so happy to be there to help. He was a great man with a big heart and will be missed!!
    Sent with love
