There are people that you see regularly that brighten your day without even realizing it. Joe was one of those people. He was one of my customers at the store. He was upbeat and joked around everytime he came in. He became my buddy. On one occasion, I had asked if he was a veteran. I told him that we honored our military with a discount and he would simply need to remind us. I witnessed humbleness and a compassion for others during that conversation. He reluctantly shared with me that he had been in the service. He thanked me but told me that he wouldn't be mentioning it again. I must have looked puzzled. He told me that he was proud to have served our country. However, he didn't like reflecting upon that time due to tough experiences. He expressed how it especially pained him to think of soldiers that were exposed to toxins causing longterm illnesses. He shared that he was blessed to have served in a position that allowed him to remain relatively safe. He mentioned his sadness for fellow soldiers that were among the casualties, the wounded, and the physically &/or mentally ill due to their sacrifices. I saw a different side of my buddy that day. I was appreciative of that conversation and gained a new respect for him from it. He will be truly missed. My condolences go out to his family and friends.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Cobbins family. I worked with Joe twenty some odd years, he was a hard worker and always willing to help anyone. I will always remember the good times we shared. I was proud to call him my friend.
