|Words of Tribute to Joe
I would like to say a few words about Joe, if I may. I suppose I knew him for at least fifty of my sixty plus years and can truthfully say he was one of the best. More like a brother of mine though a few years older.
I tried in a way to pattern my life as his. I succeeded in some ways but not all. I'm sure those who knew him know what I'm trying to say. Don't think I ever met anyone who didn't like him.I guess that's more than a lot of folks can lay claim to .
