    Steve Marshall says:
    Hi, Not sure who will read this. It says I'm the first to sign here. Don't understand, since it says he passed over a year ago. I'm leaving this in case somebody in his family gets notified, and they read it. This is Poochie's old friend, Steve Marshall. We grew up together, and were good friends through high school, when we lost touch. I think he went off to the navy, with Larry Bonar, and I went off to college at Morehead. But oh my...the memories of growing up with him. I remember him living on the house on the hill behind the Nazarene church, before route 8 was built. I remember all his siblings: Donna, Jimmy, Judy, Mike, and Steve. I remember his dad Bus, whose birthday was St. Patrick's day. I remember the day Joe's mother died. I think we were around 10 or 11 then. That's when he started coming to St. Augustine, I think in 5th grade, through the 8th. Then we went to the public high school. I remember how popular he was in school; how good he was at sports, incl. baseball and basketball. I remember the his red scooter he'd ride around Augusta on before we could drive a car. So, to any of Joe's family who might read this: I'm so sorry to hear of his passing. He was a wonderful person and great friend. If you can, reply to this message or somehow let me know you got it. Thanks.
