I will be praying that this family have the strength to get through this time of hurt and sadness. And that your hearts heal.Love you all! Susie (Brown) Carlson Austin,TX.

It's been more than 30 years since I've last seen Joe. As I think back, I can't ever remember a time when he wasn't smiling and crack'n a joke - usually at me. That's how I will always remember him.

My prayers for Joe and family.
