Brent & Lalania

I was a high school classmate of Joe in Lincoln and I just wanted to say how sorry I am to hear about your dad . Joe and I were teammates on the football, baseball and and basketball teams, he was a pretty solid athlete and a great guy. I think he gave up basketball when he discovered music, he was a very talented guy. Please know that I am thinking about you and your dad, take care and God bless.

I was in band with Joe from Jr. High through high school. He was so talented and very funny. I have good memories of Joe. I'm sure he's drumming with the angels. Rebecca
