    Well I tell you Joe was my brother, my best friend, my brother in Christ, one of the kindest people I have ever had in my life. We talked every day and there was nothing I could not tell Joe. You could tell him anything and be assured he would never put u down. He was just like my mother as if it was her in the flesh. A better man I have never known. I just love him so much. Will be rough making it on a day to day without him, but have no choice. God rest his blessed soul.

    My papa was loving, caring, compassionate, understanding and most of all he was PERFECT in my eyes. He loved me no matter what. At Times I didn’t deserve it and he still loved me and supported me and was there no matter what. My papa influenced me so much and is the reason I am the person I am today. Papa is with my granny now and they are going strong like they never missed a beat. They raised me to love and to care for others and I will continue to strive every day to make them proud. My heart feels so empty today but as we lay you to rest, I recollect of all the memories I have and nothing can compare to that. I love you papa. More than you will ever ever know. My hero. Watch over us and kiss granny for me. Until we meet again.

    My uncle Joe was a man that treated people with kindness, when my grandfather died he took over for him as best he could for me. I will never forget how loving he was to me and my family. He will be missed! My heart hurts for All who knew him.

    Sorry to hear of the passing of Joe but now believe he is with Tommie of whom we know he missed so much. Tommie gave my wife and I some flowers that bloom every spring which are a continual reminder to us of her. Now we will remember Joe also.

    I will always treasure the time Joe and Tommie entertained the Sarver cousins in Dellrose. They shared their love if Dellrose with us and their love and close friendship of the Sarver and Hall families. Joe even “arranged” for the train to come through Dellrose to our delight. Our prayers are with all of you.
