My condolences to the family. I know it meant so much to Joe that you came to see about him and shared your love with him. His life choices kept you at arm's length much of time, but he always knew you cared. May he rest in peace, and may you take comfort in memories of the good times with him. {{{hugs}}}

I met Joe 3 years ago right outside of Augusta University and when I began working there he was one that I always looked for. We shared many meals lol he would always ask me is that for me. It had become a ritual. I would sometimes fuss about all the sugar he would eat and he would well gotta leave here one day might as well be happy. He had a rough path and I hated that for him most of all he was a veteran that should’ve been treated so much greater. I loved that little guy and I’m truly gonna miss seeing him around town just makes my heart so so sad.

Joe was a frequent flyer at our hospital but we loved him and looked out for him. I will never forget shaving his face for him and giving him a haircut as he gave instructions. To repay me he sang Motown songs to me and he knew all the words to each song. I will miss you buddy!

Oh my Gosh!! This makes me so sad!! Joe was a regular part of my career in Richmond County, and he normally made me smile with his sheepish grin. He once asked me to marry him, but I couldn’t accept.....Bless him and Bless his family! I promise you he will be missed. In our own way, we tried to take care of him.
