David, Gene, & families,
I am so sorry to hear of Joe's passing.  He was a wonderful neighbor, always seemed to be smiling.  When I saw him in Devils Lake last year, he came right up to me and greeted me with "Susie!"  I was so impressed that he remembered me!!  May your memories give you comfort during this difficult time.  Hugs to all.

David, Gene and family,

I will forever remember Joe and Doris as our wonderful neighbors.  They were kind, sweet and funny.  My favorite memory of Joe was babysitting Ryan together.  What a great day.  Love you guys.  My sincere condolences.
