Joey and Jill, I am sure that our paths have crossed certainly at the Second Street Market. Joe would stop and visit (Big Sky Bread) and we’d talk for ...... let’s say a long time ...... cars, families, politics, cars. I helped him with the Triumph and then the Mercedes when problems arose. Stopped by our house and went for rides a couple times. Of course Christmas at the house was AMAZING, exhausting to think of how he did all that.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. We, as you, will cherish our memories and times with Joe. Rest assured he is at peace and with the love of his life.

Joey and Jill, my deepest condolences on the death of your Dad, Joe. He was always so very proud of you each as individuals. You did the max for him, especially in everything you have done in his final difficult months.
Shannon and Craig, thank you for each being such a wonderful support to your spouse.
You are a beautiful family. It was an honor to help you with his home. Hopes for healing and peace.
