If God did a better job at making a person better than Joe, I never met them. I am a Retired Louisville Police officer and knew joe for over forty years.

I rode the Berry Blvd area for over eleven years and I got to know Joe, and Linda well. They were as much of my family as my brothers, and sisters were.

We were old time race drivers, and full time bull shippers.. What ever my troubles were with the job left when I entered the car repair shop. for I loved the harrasment I got when I entered
.
Joe was a good man and as we mourn his death l let us thank god he lived for he helped people and this old world is a better place because he did live. RIP Joe I will see you on the other side

I only wish Dear Brother,That you could have looked inside my heart really seen the Love that lies within. Times we have shared, the times you were there. Times from long ago, that only you and I know.The times, that make me grin .You have been there through all the years , through the sunshine and the rain. You believed in me and helped me grow. You weren't a man to just sit and you were always being put to the test.You always told me all you can do is your very best. Thank You, my Brother for loving , and caring about me. I am going to miss you but hold your memory close to my Heart always.

A New Life


Our loved ones don't die; they start a new life instead!
They haven't left us; they've just gone on ahead!

We will miss and grieve them, while we're still alive
But they're waiting, with open arms, for us to arrive!

The emptiness and pain, in our hearts, is hard to bear
But their loving memories will comfort us there!

We must look to our family and friends, to lend a hand
And help us on our journey, 'til we leave this mortal land!

Our love still grows for the special people we miss,
Because we still feel the warmth of their touch or kiss!

So, you see, they are still with us in so many ways,
And their love will give us strength 'til our final days!!
