Hey Jody and Sue. So sorry to hear about Joe. He and Jack were my only first cousins. My late brother Forrest and I enjoyed them so much while growing up in Stoneville back in the 1940's and 50's. Joe took me on my first hunting trip behind your old house before you were born. I was maybe 12 years old. I almost shot him. It scared us both. We live in Tucson AZ so want be able to attend service but thinking about your family.
Scott and Earlene Lewis
