I have the privledge of calling Mr. Joe my friend. He was a very kind and loving man. I have loved getting to know him well the last few years. I will miss him on my walks at Bonita and sound him at Cash Savers and downtown. RIP my friend you deserve to walk those streets of gold with your precious wife Pam. You will be greatly missed but it will be great to see you again one day. Until then my friend!!!!
