I'll always remember Uncle Joe playing the guitar and he and Aunt Lucy singing at the family reunions. He always had a smile, a hug and kind words for everyone. He and Aunt Lucy are rejoicing in heaven and I know my Mother is there to welcome him. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. With Love, Judy (Walker) Stewart and Family.
