I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I remember meeting Joe while I was in the process of building my house across the street. Although I did not know him at the time, he was looking out for me and keeping an eye out on my building materials. I came over one evening with my cousin, and he asked if I had any business being there. He was a very honest and caring man. He was always very kind to me and I will miss our mailbox meetings. If there is anything I can do, please let me know.

Joe was truly the best. I’ll always remember him sitting with my dad watching our kids play sports through their years at Monroe and Limestone. The “grandpas” never missed a game. We are very lucky to have had Joe in our lives and he will be missed. All our love to the family, The Masons

Dear Linda & family,
I was so sorry to hear of your loss. I remember all the softball games we sat through & how much Joe loved every minute of being there. I remember Joe as one of the kindest people I knew, always gentle with a kind word for all. My prayers & caring thoughts go out to all of you.
