    Dear Mrs. Kovac Garcia,
    Thanks for your interest in the photos of Joseph Kovac. We would be happy to forward the pictures of him. Could you please identify which pictures–just cite the particular web page and which slide show each appears in and if you put your mouse over the bottom of the image you want you will see a number which will help us to identify the image.
