To the Schwab Family:

I had the privilege of working with you father at Drucker & Falk just a few years before he retired. Joel was such a sweet and gentle man, who had a wonderful smile, and always shared words of encouragement. He called your mother every morning from the office and told her how much he loved her and I loved him for that! I will always have very fond memories of of your father, as I know you will.

   Y'all take good care of each other!  TYPHOONS FOREVER!  We'll Always Have Buckroe!

                          Love to all, Carol
