Condolences to Barbara

Barbara, I leaned from Ann B that your companion of 20 years has died. I am sorry for the grief that you must be experiencing. Want you to know that I am thinking of you and hope that you are surrounded by caring friends and family who will help you through this difficult time in the present and in coming days.
Blessings,
Donna Reece


Lovely Man

I knew Joe from playing tennis with him at the YMCA in Palm Harbor, Florida, when he would come down to escape the Kentucky winters. He was so much fun to play with and talk to, always had a smile on his face, and was just a joy to be around. Great sense of humor.

I will miss him next winter when all the other snowbirds come back to the tennis courts. His absence will be a giant loss to our group. My condolences to his family, he was a wonderful man, and I felt privileged to know him.


Friend

I met Joe when we were about 6 years old. We where close childhood friends. His mother and father treated me like a member of their family. In 1977 Joe’s mother gave me advice and comfort about buying this house that we are are still living in.
A nice man, and a nice family. Hope to meet you again in the next life soon Joe.
