    To the Lake Family,

    My condolences at your loss of your Dad. Growing up we always called him “Mr.” Lake. My dad, Joe Gasperich, insisted on it. They did make some great music together…I even have a picture of the musicians together. They did love their music.

    I remember John and Lefty the best from that group. They practiced together and spent some good times. I also remember having our TV fixed by your Dad. He was the “best”…according to my Dad….and the results were always good.

    My prayers and concern are with you.
