  7. Dear Mrs. B, Lynne, Kathy Jo and my sweet best friend Jane Ann,

    Mere words can only hope to begin to comfort you all in this moment in time. I know all too well the pain you all feel right now. It gets a little easier as each day comes but of course, a loved one is never far from our thoughts. The funny thing is, the memories form when you least expect it… like big puffy clouds on a blue sunny day… not threatening but just present and, honestly, quite wonderful. Love him now and always as you did before. It’s true that we are the sum total of every single person we’ve ever met, known and loved. His smile and laugh lives on inside each of you. So please, celebrate his life whenever possible… it brings joy to all of you and lets your heart grow even bigger.

    My arms reach out to hold you all….. much love and affection,
    James

  8. I was very sorry to hear of Joe’s death. I worked with him at Acro Industries and he was always willing to help you if you needed and he always had a smile. He was so proud of his family. We spent many hours talking about them. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Rest in Peace Joe. You will be missed.

  9. Jane and family, I can’t tell you how sorry we are for your loss. It is for sure one of the hardest things you’ll ever have to go through. Try and take comfort knowing that God has bigger and better plans for him. Now is the time to look back on all the great memories and laugh at all the crazy moments you’ve shared together. Just think how lucky you all are to have had him in your lives. There will always be a part of you missing now, but just know that he will always have a piece of you with him. Stick together as a family and you can get through anything! xxoo

    Lots of love to you all, Tiffany

  14. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Papa Joe was a great man and I am so blessed that he was a part of my life. I have many great memories of him and he will truly be missed but be at ease to know that he is in Heaven resting in peace celebrating with the angels. I wouldnt be surprised if Papa was up there causing a riot already :0) Rick and Wyatt both wish they could have met him but I am sure to tell them of all our great memories and share pictures with them so they will know who Papa is. All our love, hugs and kisses, The Sanders Family
