We had some rib breaking laughs in Hardy, AR !! You were always the sweetest person ❤️ You come to see me after I moved to Mtn. Home and laughed because I didn’t recognize you for a minute 😂 18 years later I got word that you were in the hospital in Batesville, AR so I went up to visit you. It took you about 15 seconds to recognize me! We had the biggest laugh. I will miss you but I’m sure I will see you again. ❤️

I went fishing with Uncle Joe once while up at Mammoth Springs, AR. He threw his hook and it barely hit the water, until he said “Ahhh they ain’t biting.” Reeled in in and he was ready to go. Not a patient man. That was many years ago. I still giggle about that when I think about him. Uncle Joe was a great story teller. I loved to sit and listen to him. He was very loved and will most definitely be missed!

Tell them all hi for us Uncle Joe!
