Happy St. Patty's Day 3/17/06

Just a note to wish every one a Happy St. Patricks Day. Several lines of Joseph's family history come from the Scotch-Irish (http://www.scotchirish.net/Who%20are%20the%20Scotch%20Irish.php4) who settled in America. They were Protestants who escaped from Scotland and went to Ireland and from thence a few generations later to America. The Taggart family Crest has a significant motto worth remembering: "Spem Successus Alit" literally "Success Nourishes Hope"a good thought for the day. More later.

Joe,
Hey man, its Carl from work, Nelson (old man) (Sun guy) etc, etc, haha...I was in the break room and happened to read the messege on the board about what happened, with the new bid I am there maybe 3 days a week, and part time, so I'm never there....anyway, I just found out about what happened, ....Joe, I was shocked, I couldnt believe it, words cant decribe it, all I can say, is that I wish this hadnt have happened to someone, so full of life and as much zeal as you, simply tragic. But, with so much life, and vigor I know you will fight real hard to get up and get moving again. I'm sorry I missed the benifit dinner that was held on your foundations behalf,..I am going to donate some money into it though, and I would be honored to help you or your family out in anyway I can, if there is anything I can do, my Number is 801-688-7559, I'm sure there is another way of getting that number to you and your family, I'll find it and get in touch. Anyway, Joe, I'm praying for you and your family, and again, I know in my heart how strong you are and how willing you are to fight back, ..I hope this messege gets to you, I'm going to look around your site to see if there is a better way to get in contact. Keep up the fight Joe, God bless you and your family through these times. Be talking to you soon man!
Carl
