Gayle, ,
I was so sorry to find out just today that you lost Joel.
I remember his smile and that you and he seemed so happy together. You were a sweet couple and just from what I remember, you and he just completed one another.
Praying for the Comforter to comfort you and your dear family . Love you.

Aunt Gayle, Allyson, Alicia and Todd -
I am so very sorry for your loss. I'll always remember Uncle Joel as a loving, funny, and caring man. Whenever I was at your house and he was there, he would always take time to listen and talk to me. Uncle Joel would tell the best jokes in that Geechee voice of his! The trips to the lake were some of my fondest summer memories. My girls still remember when Santa came to Mom and Dad's house - what an exciting moment that was for them! I'm sure he is up in heaven, free of pain, entertaining everyone with his good humor. Uncle Joel, you will be missed on this side, but we look forward to a reunion in heaven.

I am so very sorry to hear of Mr. Frampton's passing. I have such such wonderful memories of spending time with the family at their home and at Rocks Pond. He would always tease me because he would have to bait my hook for me. I felt such love from your family after my Mom passed away and so appreciate all the kindness over the years. One of my favorite nicknames was given to me by Mr Frampton - he called me and Alicia the Gold Dust Twins. I treasure my memories of this wonderful family and pray for peace and comfort for you all. Love, Rosie
