I can't even begin to express how my heart aches for you. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. I know you all are hurting right now and only time, hopefully not to much, will turn the hurt into happy memories of your dad.

He was always smiling wasn't he? That's how I remember him.

I have so many good memories with Joe. I think a special one is when my wife and I camped with his family in St. Andrew's State Park. He invited us to go with the family/friends to camp at the park. We were amazed to feel so comfortable and have so much fun with people we didn't know that well. We enjoyed eating at Hunt's Seafood. I will always equate Hunt's and oysters with Joe. He gave Leah a tour of "Old" Pensacola that she loved. He was so knowledgeable about many things. I loved listening to his stories. I loved Joe and will miss him.

The first time I met Joe, he treated me like a good friend. It is rare that someone can show that much caring for someone they don't even know. As I got to know him, I realized that Joe was one of those few people whom everyone feels close to. He was funny, sympathetic, wise, and kind. When I went out to eat with Jeff, Lori, Joe, and Derek, it was only a matter of time until every waitress was stopping by our table to talk to Joe. His family was so protective and loving with him. He was certainly a special person. I am a better person for knowing him. He was missed the minute he passed. RIP. His family is certainly loved.

So sad to learn of the passing of your sweet Daddy. He was always cheerful when he came in the office to see you. I know you will miss him so much. Thoughts and prayers will continue to be with you in the days ahead.
