I was so sorry to hear this! I loved my cousin Joel very much; he was always so kind and sweet to me! Happy memories of our playing together at Grandmother and Granddaddy Terhune's house....

Alice and Jeff,

Very sorry to hear the news. It was a pleasure and honor to serve with Joel. He always brought his "A" game to the nation, our 315AW, his own squadron, and the crews he flew with. Will remember him fondly as we pray for God's peace that passes our understanding to be with you at this time.
