We enjoyed three canoe trips with James, one in Wisconsin on the Chippewa River, and two in northern Saskatchewan on the Churchill River. It was a joy to spend time with him, to see his skilled work in photography, and share his pleasure in paddling. These photos represent our fondest memories of our time with him.

Dear Joe and family:
I'm so sorry for the loss of your son. I'm praying for you and your family.
No words seem adequate to say at this time, just hope you know you're being thought and cared about, and hope you find special comfort in knowing that the precious memories of your son will remain in your hearts forever! I just wanted you to know that God loves you and your family. Five things God wants you to remember in trying times; 1) You're never, ever alone. 2) Nothing takes Him by surprise. 3) When you're weak, He's strong. 4) He's the God of new beginnings. 5) His Love never gives up on us. May the Lord give you and your family peace and comfort during this difficult time and trusting Him to carry you all through. Love in Christ, Anna Miller ( GE )
