"The measure  of a life, after all, is not in its duration but in its donation."  Corie Ten Boom--------  I am very thankful for the donation Joe made in my life as well as many others.  His life made a difference.  January 6th, 2009, one year ago is when this whole story began.  Although the ending didn't  turn out as we planned, God has been faithful every step of the way.  We will continue to sing, we will continue to trust because God is faithful.

Still singing and living like we are loved,

Kathleen and family
