To the family,
I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I recall fondly the time we spent at GFUMC together. I recall the men's breakfasts when most Saturday mornings Joe and I sat by each other. Now sometimes he would try to carry on a conversation with me while others were trying to talk, but that's one of the things that made Joe special. Speaking of the men's breakfasts, his bacon cooking was legendary. No one could compare to his painstaking diligence when cooking it. I recall him quite often calling me Pete, a play name from the church play we were both in many years ago. I enjoyed his stories about his bees and the past several years when raising bees was much more challenging. His protection of the honey he would bring was also well-known. Again, I'm sorry for your loss and sorry I can't be there personally to share my condolences. Steve
