I am sorry I was unable to make it to the services! Joe was a part of my childhood growing up. Jessie and Brandyn are my first cousins and I have so many memories with all of them that there are too many to choose from, but I know he passed on knowing that he had some wonderful sons who are amazing people!!! I grew up with you as my uncle and that never changed! Rest In Peace! Gone but not forgotten!!!
