I never met him but I didn't have to to know pretty much who he was and what he was to you all. Glenna and Bink I hurt so bad for the both of you when I found out. I know this was a long fight for him and all of you around him. When people we care about hurt, it hurts us knowing there is nothing we can do to take away your pain. My prayers have included and will continue to include all of you. There is a day coming when the pains of this world will be no more. Joe is in a beautiful struggle-free place with loved ones waiting for all of us! My love, hugs, and prayers.........Jo Ford
