Iam so sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

My condolences to the loss of your love one. Death is something that was not meant for humankind, because God created humans with a yearning to live forever (Eccl. 3:11). However, our loving Heavenly Father gives us a wonderful hope that 'death will be brought to nothing' and that we will see our love ones again (1 Corinthians 15:26; Mark 5:39-42).

I just heard about Randy--as I knew him--and that he has crossed over. I was one of the neighborhood kids back when we were crazy kids and went all through Emge with him. He was a great kid! I lost track of him when we went to West but I have only warm memories of him. I am so sorry for the loss I am certain that his family is feeling. My thoughts will be with you.
With warmest affection,

Joe will always be a legend to both Doug and I. We were lucky to have been granted such a privilege to meet this Man who had principles, always truthful, honest with words and wanted to share part of his life. Joe was never afraid to reveal his real thoughts and feelings, no matter what the circumstances. He was indeed one of a kind. He had the natural ability to make one feel welcomed and special with his kindness, his knowledge and being a man who loved his present and pass. He shared his love of life with many, and was one of the best chefs we've ever known. May he rest in the arms of Our Lord and may he have the biggest kitchen available in heaven. God Bless his family and may comfort come to them who too were so privileged to have such a husband, a father, a son, a brother and a friend. We will indeed miss our FRIEND - "Chicken Joe".

I have known Joe for almost 35 years and has been a friend that would give the shirt off his back for me...He would do this for anybody he cared for. This is the kind of friend that Joe was. A person like Joe is a rare breed among men. The world is going to be a lesser place by his passing. We will all miss him very, very much.

I pray that Kay, Evan and Staci may be given the Lord's peace in this time of loss. May they be comforted by the knowledge that Joe is at rest in the arms of the Lord.

Godspeed my dear friend Joe and I will one day join you where we can laugh together once again. Until then I will miss you my dear friend.

We started school together at Emge and you went by Randy. I had to leave West after my sophomore year and next I knew you were going by Joe. I had to pleasure of seeing you a couple of years ago at a restaurant by Emge. I will keep your family in my prayers and thank you for the honor of growing up with you and being your friend. I will never forget the bus rides to and from Emge. Vanessa Shepherd Campbell, Belleville, IL
