I didn't have the opportunity to meet Mr. Joe Bob, but I know part of his family...part of the legacy he left here on Earth. As I read the beautiful tribute to his life, I saw that he earnestly served his God, he earnestly served his family, he earnestly served his country. I am thankful for the foot prints he left. They are examples for us all. Praying for peace during this time and joy in the memories for you all, family.
