For many years Joe and my dad, Walt Shuler were special friends. I used to love listening
to them talk about their good old days. They would sit on the porch and drink their coffee and laugh about their past. But the best was their discussions about religion and the Bible and how the things around them was changing. Rest in peace Mr. Mull. Go join that Angel Band. You will be missed.

A special man has now left our presence and gone to be with the Lord. We will miss his smile, his stories, his laughter and his love. The days to come will be trying. Just know that he wants you to be happy. He's waiting for you in a special place that you will never have to be separated again. Please rest in the comfort of knowing that he's with the Lord and at peace. Remember that I love you all and I will always be there if you need me. I'm only a phone call away. Thelma Jane

We were saddened to hear that Joe had passed away even though we knew he was not in the best of health. He was a person with a wonderful huge personality and a tender heart, he was always one of the first people to help anyone who needed help, in any way he could. I read this little verse yesterday and it seem to fit this situation: A loved one from us has gone,A voice we love is stilled. A place is vacant in our home, That never will be filled. Please know that our entire family, Lloyd (dad) Mae (mom) , Eloise and myself, loved Joe I also want to say we love all of you and you are in our hearts and prayers

To all the family our thoughts and prayers are with you all, sorry for your lost. Joe was a one of a kind. We could sit for hours at the hunting camp telling stories and talking about our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. Joe was a dear friend of ours. He will be missed by all. But I know he's in the presents of the Lord. God Bless.
