  1. I will truly miss Joe, he was a very good neighbor. I loved going over to his house and listen to he and another neighbor, Lee Tibbs talk and give each other a hard time. They both have helped me many times when my mower was acting up. Just know that I loved and respected Joe and will really miss him.

  2. Richard,

    So sorry to see that your Dad passed. I remember him as we grew up near each other.
    Three tours in Korea as a Marine he was something to survive that.

    Take care and condolences from my family.
