I am sorry that I am just now finding out about Joe's passing.

My heart is heavy with so many losses to our glorious class of '71.

We lose not only a funny and always friendly classmate and family member, but another one of our veterans that served ths nation with honor and courage.

Fair winds and following seas to my fellow Sailor.

I grew up with Joe. His nickname in the Texana community was "Brud", but I am not sure why. Back in the third grade or so he used to thump my head and other parts almost everyday, hehe. It's what kids do. Later we experienced some really great times together. He was a continuous part of my life for 25-30 years. It is never easy when you lose a piece of yourself. But, I am confident God of the  Universe is taking good care of my brother. Peace and rest.
