Guest Book


Dear Joe, When I was 9 I would ride on the hay wagon or follow you around while you did chores. You would tell me stories and things you were learning in school. When I got to high school, I used some of what you taught me. After you were done with school, I never saw you again. Now you are at peace. I am sending a card to your brothers. They did chores on the farm too. Those were the best of days ,growing up was fun. My condolences to all the family! I could go on for ever,but will end here. Agape, DE
