We were lucky enough to have met Joe and his wonderful wife thru
one of the girls on our softball teams. I am not surprised at how supportive and reliable he was during our games. They attended a lot of tournaments and games. Margie and Don Leppla and their daughter Jackie we thank you also for giving us the chance to hang out with Joe and Sue as an extended family during those times. Such a wonderful family and Prayers and Blessings for the healing in the future. Lots of Love Tammie & Bubba

I remember my Mama telling me about Joe when they were both with Winn-Dixie and how she enjoyed working, not directly, with him.
I know Joe and Sue from my days with Village Inn, and through my dear friend Dee Quinette.
Went on a cruise for Dee's 70th birthday, and Joe and Sue were a part of this. Oh the laughs; such a great time.
Sue, Gordon and I wish you and your family peace at this time.
