Thank you Judith and Joe. You have a real touch of magic. It is difficult for me to attend these kind of events. You always have a way to make it easier to get into the car and show up. I wish we would have been able to make the whole weekend. i am sure with time we will at the next gathering. Again, thank you so much.

Thank you so much for caring about my family. We LOVE you and Joe, he is so kind and funny it was so nice to laugh again. There are no words to say how much you and Joe made a difference in our life, you and Joe are awsome people. The kids had a great time, We wished we could be around all the GREAT FAMILY'S all the time.
Mitch and I went to Ricky Nelson wake that was so hard, but it was something we had and felt from our hearts we needed to be there. We waited three hours in line.
PS..I hope Iam doing this right Mitch and I are just learning.
Oh N! I'm sure it was very very hard to attend Ricky's services....how compassionate and strong of you and Mitch..your strength humbles me.
You can always call to talk...remember that.
I hope you and the Family will be joining us in June-it would be graet to see you again, and it's right around the corner. Love-judith
Good evening Judith~I wanted to let you know that Little Emma Gene fell last weekend and I took her into the ER. The ER used a "surgical" super glue instead of stitches due to her age, 2 1/2 yrs. Her head is healing well, but she will have a scar. She has a scab forming already, I guess it means the cut is healing. She will probably still have the scab @ the summer picnic in Beloit. She still complains of her head hurting occassionally, but I think she is doing better!
Thank you very much for your kind words and everything you do for the families of the fallen. Our family is looking forward to getting more involved with the activities of this group, and meeting the families. It will be one year Friday the 9th that we lost our hero. God bless all the families out there and we pray for some healing for them this year. Thanks, Duane & Sandra Pionk & Family
