From Phyl Brown 09/26/06:

Hi. My name is PHYL BROWN. I am Joseph Carl Norquist's aunt. His mother, Sue Norquist, is my sister. I am enclosing a photo of Joey for you to post. I would like to be named as a survivor. My mother, Joey's grandmother, BARBARA KASONIC, would also like to be named as a survivor. I am a disabled United States Air Force veteran. My mother and I support the troops absolutely but not the war.

Thank you for honoring our finest women and men.
