There are so many memories that I shared with my Uncle Joe. He was known as Poppy to our kids. I have missed him for a long time. We were blessed to have had him in our lives. My love for him was similar to a daughters love for her father. He was there after my father passed away. He embraced me like I was a daughter. For that, I’m grateful! He allowed me to stay for a whole summer. I learned to eat fresh garden tomatoes and Le Seur young peas (one of his favorites) at his dinner table. We ate many breakfasts together and went to church together on several occasions. He brought so much happiness to so many people on our side of the family. We loved him!!! My heart is truly broken, but I know he is in a better place. He even reminded me a bit of my own grandpa.. laid back, easy to talk with, and good hearted. My condolences to Jo Anna, Steve, Connie, Amber, Josie, Sophie, and his sister, Martha! He was a blessing!

You are missed so much. My heart is heavy and sad. You were such a wonderful part of our family. You were always there when somebody needed help. I never heard you complain. I have missed you and will always love you. Knowing you are in Good Hands and no longer have to worry about things of this world is some comfort to me. I am happy knowing I will see you again soon.
