"Fordie" is a generous, loving spirit who always opened his door to a friend in need. My son, Joe, was a friend in need for a while. He will be missed here on earth especially by little Mila, but his spirit lives on in eternity.

"Lord, You created every part of me, You put me together in my
mother's womb. You saw me before I was born. The days allotted
to me had all been recorded in your book before any of them ever
Psalm 139

Rest in His Care
Joe's mom
