Joe and my dad (Jerry Carnes) were first cousins and were always close, particularly in their later years. There were 13 days difference in their ages and both were military men. Joe visited our family often and came to be loved by all of us. He was a fine man and a gentle man, one who we admired and respected. On behalf of our family, I send our deepest sympathy to you all.
Joe was a fine man. Our hearts and prayers are with his children.
i would have liked too see your face when you opened your eyes and saw the face of Jesus. joe i will see you soon. love you man
