Joe will certainly be missed by our family.  He was always there when our family needed him.  My parents, Floyd and Wilma Lee, thought the world of Joe.  We will always be appreciative of all he ever did for us...personally and professionally.  He always made time for us.  And thank you for your service to our country.  Rest In Peace Joe.
