As a long time friend of the family and one that I worked with, Joe was as sincere, friendly and as genuine as a person could be. I valued his friendship and know he will be missed greatly by all that knew him.
Thank you Bill! You are so right! Dad was as genuine as a man could be. He had many great times with you
Dear Jena, just say this message and I am so sorry to hear this news. Please give Jeff my condolences. It is so hard to loose a parent and my prayers are with all of you.
Grandpa was one of a kind! He was a wonderful and loving man to many people and his family. I used to go over to his house here and there when I could fly there and would hangout with them and loved it. The day before my grandpa passed, I talked to my grandma about my grandpa and everything it was a nice talk. I will surly miss him. But I pray for my grandma not that she doesn’t have my grandpa, the love of her life.
DEAREST SHIRLEY AND FAMILY, MY HEART AND PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU DURING THIS TIME OF LOSS OF JOE, A MAN TRULY LOVED BY FAMILY AND FRIENDS. YOU AND I HAVE BEEN FRIENDS SINCE HIGH SCHOOL AND AFTER. FRIENDS ARE ONE OF GOD’S GREATEST GIFTS. I PRAY FOR GOD’S DIVINE HEALING, COMFORT, AND PEACE FOR ALL OF YOU AS YOU TRAVEL THROUGH THIS VALLEY. GOD NEVER PROMISED THAT THE CROSS WOULD NOT GET HEAVY AND THE HILL WOULD NOT BE HARD TO CLIMB. HE DID PROMISE NEVER TO FORSAKE US. JUST HOLD ON THE LORD WILL SHOW UP AND HE WILL TAKE YOU THROUGH THIS. GOD’S LOVE AND MINE. CLARA
My sympathy for you and your family at the loss of Joe. I always remember him with a smile on his face.
My sincere condolences,
