You are in our prayers and our thoughts.

We hope it helps you to know that Joe was known for helping anyone he could. He especially loved helping the elderly. Often times we do things and don't realize others see, but we saw you Joe and we appreciated you. Thanks for all the volunteered helping hands.

Now it is time for you to relax Joe; take your rest. We are all on our way.

You have our sympathy.

I am so sorry to hear that we have lost a good and loyal friend. Joe was also a pleasure to be around and always was quick to offer his help before you ever had the chance to ask. I will miss my Dear Brother Joe, as we shall all miss him. But to use the words of an old Hank Williams song makes me know Joe will always be with us in spirit,,,,we have our memories of Joe and as the words of the song says
" Memories is one gift from God Almighty that death can not destroy ". We will always remember you Joe. May God bless you and your family.
