My heart felt sympathy to all the Davis family. Joe will be missed. I have such fond memories of him as a child growing up in Wards Orchard. He would always ask me to marry him! I'm quite sure I was not the only child he dazzled! Hugs and Prays are being sent to all of you during this difficult time.

Your father was a terrific person. He was a beloved neighbor and great friend to my father.

I share your sense of loss and grieve also, but also realize that he had a full life, and enjoyed many blessings. I look forward to seeing Joe in Heaven.
