Joe was always so pleasant. I never worked directly with him but Becky our daughter worked for him when she was in college and he was always a kind and pleasant gentleman. He will be missed but we will meet again one day. Prayers for Nan, their children and many friends.

Nan and Joe were our neighbors for several years. I can honestly say when we had to move we wanted to pack them up and bring them with us.
We were very fortunate to have bought our home next to 2 of the most kindest, generous, angels on earth. We loved to visit and watch Joe work in his yard and take care of the many beautiful trees and flowers in his yard. And Nan would always think of us when she was baking. She would call and tell us to meet Joe in the front yard. Always sharing her wonderful treats with us.
We always knew on wednesday afternoons and sunday mornings and evenings where they were..... Their home away from home Calvary Baptist Church. Then after the sunday morning service. I believe the next stop was Schacks for lunch. I was lucky to have seen Joe not to long ago at a store and he had that smile on his face as he always has.
We have lost a GOOD man but Heaven is very lucky to have him now..... We will miss you Joe and will always be here for Nan when and if she needs anything at all. You will be missed Joe. Love. Larry Henegar and Kim Mannix
