I am so sorry for your families loss. I met Joe over three years ago at the Battle Creek VA. I instantly liked him which is rare for me. He was such a happy man and I loved our talks. I will miss him dearly. I'm sorry I cannot attend his funeral. My thoughts are with his family and friends.
I'm so very to everyone who knew Joe, I'm blessed enough to have known him very well and we was a very handsome and charming man and he had a great sense of humor. He will be greatly missed.
Be at peace, brother, be at peace.!
I'm so very sorry for your lost, will keep you all in my prayers
So sorry to hear of his passing. Knew him when he was a young man. May he now rest in peace. Sending sincere condolances
