    I just learned today that Joe died. I have fond memories of our childhood together. We had a lot of fun times with his brothers and mine (Leslie Lindsey). My dad and his mom grew up together. My sympathies go out to his family! I wish we had stayed in touch over the years! Helen

    Joe was the most wonderful husband and father. I have never met anyone you could make me smile as much as he did. He is the love of my life and I will miss him.
