Not sure what to say?

Prayers for the entire family as they grieve the loss of their Dad/grandpa/friend.

Dad, you will forever be in our hearts. So grateful for our Mexico trip and the time you spent at our home, dinners out etc. Rest In Peace with our Heavenly Father. Until we meet again. We love you!

Some of Joe's roses that he tended to..

Had a fun time with Joe visiting the national parks. He had a funny sense of humor. He will be missed but is in good hands now.

Eberhard Equipment and all of our current employees who worked with Joe send our prayers and sympathy to the family for your loss. Joe was a very hard worker and focused and dedicated to the day he retired. We enjoyed his visits when he was able to stop by and always remember him with a smile on his face. He is at peace and with Shirley now who was his life long partner and confidante. Take care our friends. We would like to make a donation to his most worthy cause if someone would like...

Please know that your extended family in Oklahoma is sorry for your loss. We pray God's peace for you. Faye has always spoken of Little Joe fondly and we love that they have remained in touch through all the years and miles.
