Uncle Joe I know you are a peace now with Aunt Julie, Nana and Papa. I hope you know how much you were loved. You had the biggest personality and always loved entertaining everyone. I will never forget when we lived in Florida and you were constantly eating things that weren’t good for you so I would cook and bring you dinners all of the time. Aunt Julie said you would purposely tell me about foods you would eat that you weren’t supposed to just so I would bring you things I cooked. Every time you came to visit us in Georgia you kept us laughing all of the time. You would tease Aunt Julie and tell her you were “A long way from home and all alone” You would say it every single time you came to visit and she would just crack up laughing at you. You loved to be comical and make everyone laugh. We all have our own special memories of you that we will cherish always. Rest Easy Uncle We all miss you and love you! Love your niece -Jennifer Crankshaw
