    Vicki and family….sorry to hear about the passing of Joe…he lived a good life. Went to Libby at 7:15 and no one was there only to discover after reading the obituary on my phone that it was 4-7 PM and I thought I read 7-9 PM. Many prayers and will get a Mass card. Stay well and see you soon and God Bless.
