To the love of my life:
I miss you so very much. We spent 43 years together and I wish it were 43 more.
I miss your smile, your love, holding hands as we slept at night,
And as we drove down the road,
having morning coffee and all the rest of just you.
I wished everyone knew how big hearted you were.
Thank you for loving me and for loving my children and our grandchildren. I hope you realized how much they all loved you including our daughter-in-law and son-in-laws. Thank you for moving us back to Hamilton and our country home.
I'll love you forever for you took half of me with you. Walk slowly so we can cross that river together hand in hand.
Your loving wife

I was privileged to travel to Texas. It was mid August when I visited Joe and his lovely wife, Doris, that he prepared me for his death, telling me not to cry over him as he had lived a good, long, life and did everything he wanted to do. He was the last of four brothers, his precious older sister, Joyce, age 87 is still with us. Joe's determination to follow his dreams helped make him the successful business man that he was still at his death. He was NEVER rude or unkind to me, and I've known him for 75 years. Our families went to church together when we were children at home. I married his youngest brother and we lost him in Sept. 2017. He loved his brother Joe very much. This is still hard but God will sustain us.
With "precious memories" and much Love, I will miss my Big BROTHER, JOE PARISH, but with stead-fast Faith, I believe we will see him again, because he did know the LORD.
My Love and Prayers to his Beautiful family...

Joe wasn't my father, he was my dad. I loved him so very, very much. When he was taken from this earth, it took a piece of my heart with him. I always loved working with him, no matter what the project was. He was one of the smartest men I have ever known. He always knew how to do it, when to do it, and if he did not know, he found a way to get it done. I will forever miss you dad. I will see you on the other side.

I have many fond memories of Uncle Joe. He was kind hearted and soft spoken and the mischievious crooked smile he would give you that could melt your heart will be how I will always remember him. Loved him so very much and so appreciative of the fond memories that I will always cherish. Absent in presence but forever with me in my heart. Love you all so very much.

So glad I had the privilege of knowing you. You were a great man and had a great personality. We had lots of fun and laughter at game nights at PCC.
Prayers for the family during this difficult time.
