Dearest brother Joe, we will deeply miss your smiling face, your charming "country ways," and your inspiring love of life, family, and friends. We know you have already found the best fishing spots in heaven and have invited ole Saint Peter to join you - teaching him to best lures to use! And we can hear you hooting and hollering as you joyfully run through those heavenly flowery fields unhampered by knee pain! Your memory and our love for you will live on in our hearts as we await the day when we will be together again - this time, eternally. Farewell dear brother. Rest in peace. Love you so much, Gloria & Randy
