    So many good memories of our “growing up” years. So very sorry that Joe’s final years most likely lost many of those times In Madison. He will continue to live on in your hearts. Prayers & peace for you all.

    candle 7One of the neatest guys I’ve ever known! So true he was a super storyteller. I’ll never forget introducing him to the
    burned out light fixer for the Christmas Tree he couldn’t believe I found such a great tool, considering I knew nothing
    about a fixing anything! He always reminded me he was still using it!
    I will miss him too. So glad its over for him, I know how bad he hated not being able to be home with you Linda, when we had an event at your house he often gave you all the credit and reminded me you were indeed the love of his lif. he loved you very much. I prayed to find a love the way he loved you God truly heard and answered my prayers too. .
