My deepest condolences to the Abney family. May you find strength in the words of Isaiah 51:12, "I myself am the One that is comforting you."
Joel has a special place in our hearts from the moment we meet him 30 some years ago. Always positive about life. Encourgaging works spoken to our children. He will be missed. Love and Prayers to all of his family.
Rich & Bunny Carron and Children.
Joe was very special. Walked me down the aisle when I got married. Loved him dearly. Was willing to be my guardian cause my adoptive parents were old enough to be grandparents. Was a special father figure for me. We lived on the farm and always loved to see our city cousins visit us. Always loved his hugs. Lots of special loving memories. Loved him very much.

To the entire Abney family, you are all in our prayers. We had the pleasure of meeting your father, father in-law, grandfather, greatgrandfather, uncle and friend only a few short years ago. From the first time I shook his hand and gave him a hug I felt as though I knew him all of my life. He will be missed by his family down south. God Speed Mr. Joel. Love always Pam & Barry.
Dear Uncle Joe, you were always such an inspiration to me. I have loved you forever! I had a dream about you this week.. It was nice..wish my kids and grandkids would have had the chance to have known you as we did. You were awesome never judgemental always supportive so kind to us and always made to feel like family. I will never forget you you have n will always be in my heart! Thank you ..
My sympathies. Joel was a friend and mentor to me. I will miss him dearly.
My sympathies. Joel was a wonderful friend and spiritual mentor. He left us with a wonderful legacy.
I knew Joel for over 30 years, and he was a good friend, and always supportive, somebody told us years ago to get in somebody's back pocket and stay there. Joel has been in my back pocket for over 30 years. He did a lot of good over the years, and I am sure he had a back pocket full of people over the years.-- Don Cahoy
Liam said he already saw you in his dreams Thursday night. Thank you Daddy!
