  4. A great neighbor and friend. We will miss him. He was one of the first that we met when we moved in and was always a helpful friend. The first time I met him he helped me start a tiller. He was always ready to “fix” anything broke and did several carpentry projects for me. A kind and loving man that shared his life with so many. The neighborhood will have a big hole in it without his presence.

  5. Thinking of you Sue. Have thought of you guys a lot lately. Had wondered where you had gone. God Bless you and your family. I thank God for all the good times we shared with you and Joe. Roland and Sherma Flowers
