One Christmas I want to say it was 2013 my husband, 3 children and I had just moved down the street from Joe and Mary. Alice came to my mother's and asked if when we came home if we could stop down that Mary and Joe had bought a few things for the kids to welcome us to the neighborhood. They truley blessed my children that day with so much more than just a welcoming to the neighborhood. My mother had just been diagnosed with cancer and Joe made it a point to also ask how she was or stop and see her. She loved when he would stop her at the grocery or when he came and congratulated her on her first relay for Life when she found out she was in remission. He was always a God fearing man and made sure others knew it. He will be greatly missed. Our heart is shook 1300 miles away for your family. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone in our little hometown.
