    I’m deeply sorry for your great loss. Joe was such a good guy and a great neighbor. He was such a hard worker. Always keeping busy and keeping his lawn looking great. I remember when I was little how he always gave me big fat pieces of
    chalk for my hopscotch and 4 square games. He will be missed by all that knew him.

    Joe and Sandy were great next door neighbors to the entire Shaw clan of 9 kids. I did not know that Joe was a Marine just like our dad and youngest brother, Gary. He was a good hardworking man and always friendly. My sincere condolences to the family. Pat in Wisconsin.

    candle 8After meeting you and Sandy at St Al’s so many years ago, our friendship continued through changes in churches and changes in addresses. I will miss our telephone conversations and birthday lunches. I’ll miss you, dear friend. Rest in peace…
