Not sure what to say?

To Joe and Nerissa, and Adam and family, sorry for you loss, you all are in my thoughts and prayers, today and in the future, love yall! Christy Fox Baltimore

I have known Joe about 3 years now from my job @ bp and he was the most welcoming face i have ever seen coming to a new job. Joe has never had anything but a smile on his face and lit up my darkest days with his great big hugs and sense of humor. He was the sweetest kindest man i have ever known and will be missed greatly. RIP my friend

I also met Joe at the Kangaroo station and loved listening to him. He was a sheer delight and was a definite confidence booster when I was at a low point in my life. Those leftover biscuits were a blessing too! Joe had the biggest smile and gave the best hugs. Looks like you won the lottery Joe...Rest in peace my friend!

Katie and family i am so sorry for your loss.

I met Joe at the Kangaroo station in Murfreesboro, He came in there just about everyday to hang out with those of us who were regular customers & the employees, He brought in Dodges leftover biscuits to hand out to whoever wanted one, Joe became a really good friend & will be greatly missed. Rest In Peace Joe! :'(

:( so sad to hear this! Joe has came in my job @ The Pantry for 3 years now..telling me everyday that "when he wins the lottery, we will run away together" Work will NEVER be the same without Joe there cutting up! ill miss my hugs & kisses from him! Nobody could ever replace him! May u rest in peace Joe...I Love You!!

Katie and family, I am so very sorry for your loss.

I credit Joe with my 14 yrs at Dodges Chicken in panama city. Fl. He basically hired me and what has kept me here 14 yrs so far. I have never met a better southern gentleman, Joe will always be Dodges to me, and a great example for the company. I wish I could tell him in person how much he influenced me and my life at Dodges, he touched my life and my heart! I love and will miss u Joe! Prayers to the family and friends. RIP JOE! Love u.
