To the family of Joe.
Please accept my most heartfelt sympathy on your loss. I last talked to Joe at the Church reunion and was so happy to have seen him. I remembered him from many years ago out on Long Run when my sister, JoAnn Davis, brother, Harold Davis, and I lived near by. RIP, my friend.

One of the best friends I ever had, Joe always had my back when we worked in the mine together. I have many fond memories working with Joe, sharing old times at the mine picnics, and deer hunting together. I’m glad our paths crossed in this life. Joe was a good friend. My prayers to the family . Larry M. Hundagen
