Dear Tony, Doug, and family- so sorry for the loss of your Mom and Dad. Joe was a best friend of my brother Tony Douglas Gaa. He also in turn named his son Randy Joseph Gaa after Randy Jung and your dad. I have lots of memories of the great friendship of Tony, Joe, and Rsndy. Your Dad taught me to drive in that neat red convertible that he had. We all rode horses at Uncle George’s stable. And the big boat trip they took with my dad down the Mississippi to New Orleans. ( I’m not sure if they made it all the way). Lots of good memories. My brother died in 2009. He has two sons, Randy and Adam.
