I will miss his warm, big smile, that lightened up your day; many memories of cherished times riding horses; fishing at the pond, and just hanging out. That is one big angel on all of our sides. Love you Donna and Joey

Donna, we were shocked to hear of Joey's passing. We just saw the both of you a couple of weeks ago and he was his ornery self. One never knows when the good Lord is going to call us home. Jim and I will cherish all of the wonderful memories we have of him. We pray that God wrap his loving arms around you and comfort you during this very difficult time. Just know that Jim and I are just a phone call away if you need us for anything. Love you, Jim and Kathy Hormann
