Joan and family: My sincere condolences on the passing of a dear husband, father, grandfather, & great grandfather. I know he "loved" his big rigs over the years and was born to drive. He will be greatly missed by all. A special "hello" to you Joan. You will always be thought of as the best insurance agent ever. The business is not the same without you and your personal touch. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Pat Murphy
