My daddy was a very kind person and I actually miss him every day. I remember when we would play video games and watch tv together and we would talk about the shows and laugh at video games and I really miss that.

I met Joe about 20. years ago when I was working with his mother at University of Arkansas. He was such a sweet happy child with the most captivating smile I have ever seen. I am soo sad that he has left us so young. May his soul Rest In Peace and May the universe provide strength and comfort to his mother and to all this family and friends.
Joe thank you for touching my life and see you on the other side

Joe was a great young man. Melanie and I met him and his family in the 90’s when I was working in NWA. His devotion to his family, his friends and his service to society both in work and the military will have a lasting impact and will be sorely missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and hope that his memory will continue to provide comfort and inspiration.

Joe was one of my best friends, I saw amd hung out with him almost every week. He was one of the only people that I knew I could call if I was down and out, or stranded, or just needed good company, who was always reliable, and would be there to greet me with open arms and a perfect sarcastic witty remark, that we would laugh about until my chest hurt. No one has ever made me laugh so hard, and although no one can ever come close to acheiving it, I will continue to strive towards keeping his… Read more »
