In honor of Mr. Joe... I blew off my driveway which I watched him do every morning for 10 years while being his neighbor. Mr. Joe also knew everyone in the neighborhood and knew how to get little things accomplished like trash cans moved from the curb to the house without him ever touching a trash can. All it took was a kind word and little something $$ extra $$ placed under the can for it to get moved back from the curb. I have watched and chatted with Mr. Joe from across the street for 10 years and I have been influenced and challenged by his spirit of love and pride for our neighborhood. He will truly be missed here on Holly Ridge Drive and (truth be told it should be called BARNETT ROAD, for some time) Blessings and love to all who knew this great neighbor of mine.
