Joe and Dorothy have been our next-door neighbors since 1979, you could not have asked for sweeter people to have as next-door neighbors
they were always checking on us if they thought something was wrong and we on them . Joe said they especially looked forward to the peanut brittle we always brought them at Christmas
He missed his Dorothy so much and they were so sweet together now they will be together again
we will certainly miss having him next-door but we wanted to say how sweet and kind Ted and Tonya and other family members have been in taking great loving care of Joe. Tonya we thank you for keeping us posted on updates of Joe when things would arise .
We will all greatly miss this sweet sweet man
Our prayers and condolences go out to all the family at this time and so sorry that we are out of town at this time and will not be able to attend the services but we will certainly be praying for all of you
May God give you comfort today and in the days ahead
