That's rlealy thinking out of the box. Thanks!
Genevieve Palmer, With tears flowing a bit rampantly from my face, as I attempt to type this, I just want to say I LOVE YOU! You are missed and will always be remembered and specially every full moon, as the next one is almost here. Thank you, Jean, for all the loving advice and support you gave to your youngest---The one that appears to be abit, or more, "out there" to others--but it is my creative mind that keeps be completely outside the box, where I am happiest. It's all good---I just want you to know that I have a special place in my heart that no one else will ever occupy and I am sure someday I will write a song about it---Hey, maybe it'll be a hit!!! I really wish that the "Garden" dream had manifested before you departed, but when it does happen, you'll have the best seat in the house!! Again, I love you, as I always will--your loving Joel
Joel Palmer
