    Joe, was kind, gentile and giving and not a day went by when he didn't make me smile being with him. His leaving to go to a better place hurts. I miss him deeply. I am proud that I knew him. God welcomed a good soul this week. I really really miss him.

    Pat & family, I'm so thankful of my visit with you & Joe a few weeks ago. After so many years of not seeing you both,we seemed to pick-up right where we left off. I'll never forget being neighbors at Leland MHP and our camping trip to MA-MA-MOCKSVILLE Friendships & memories mean a lot, and I have both with you & Joe. You all are in my & Patsy's thoughts and prayers. God Bless----Love, Roger & Patsy Teachey
