Condolence & Memory Journal

I am so sorry for the loss of your father. Many of you don't know me, I am Jean Woll's son( uncle Joe's sister).
I have many wonderful memories of uncle Joe playing his guitar for us as children. He always had a song and a warm heart that that made me hope he would be at our grandparents house when we came to visit. He was always so pleasant. I look back at how he patiently taught me to play chess and much I love the game now. He will always be in my heart and a part of the good things in my life.Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.

I am so sorry for the loss of your father. I graduated with your mother Helena and considered her one of my very best friends. My late husband Carmen was a good friend of your fathers. As youngsters you would visit us in New Castle, DE. I thought of you all and your Dad so often. I still miss your Mom. Sending love and prayers for you and all your family.

Michael,Theresa,Mary,Sandy,and David. Please accept my deepest condolences on the loss of your Father. It was apparent that he was a hardworking single parent to his children and taught them how to be responsible and deal with life. I hope he is resting peacefully in heaven with your Mom. I am sure they both will be looking down on all of you with great love. God bless you all.
