Mary and I are 1st cousins and I remember when she and Joe got married. We were all very close as kids. Steven worked in our gas station when he was young.Mary was always a good girl and I hope my cousin will be o.k. Like I told her we are strong people and hey, we are getting older, so only God knows when we are ready...Mary, I love you and will stay in touch....You cousin Barbara

Joe and Mary were one of the first neighbors to greet us when we were the "newbies" on the block over thirty years ago! We have always held Joe in the highest regard and he will be missed dearly. - Chris and David Ganjani
