 Excerpts from Joe's letters


The following excerpts are from a few of the many, many letters Joe sent me in CA. before we ever met.


"Karen, I wish that you would do me one great favor. If I can’t be near you, I would at least love to have your picture so that I won’t feel so far away from you. I will send you a picture of myself if you want one. My friend has one of those 10 second cameras and as soon as he breaks down and buys some film, he is going to show me how it works and I’ll get some pictures there."
