I’m sorry I was unable to attend Joe’s service. Cadence is with me and not well enough to take out in this weather. Know that you and Joe are in my prayers.

Helen, we are so sorry for your loss. Joe was such a kind man and always so willing to help us out when we had trouble! Whether it was a garden hose stuck in the lawn mower fan, or a car stuck in the snow! He always went out of his way to help. We have loved having you all as neighbors and are so glad to have known Joe for a little while. I am thankful he is free of pain and with his Heavenly Father. Love you, Helen.

Fondly, Barb and Mike
