Joe and Phyllis used to come hear us play in he Augusta area. They loved music and I always had to sing 'Blue Kentucky Girl' for his Kentucky girl. I just happened to come across this notice and was so sorry to hear this. They were such a wonderful loving couple. Always loved to be around them. My prayers for this family.....

When I first meet you, you were such a Southern Gentleman. You shook my hand and you hugged me, and you said "It's about time, I need you." You made beautiful cooper jewelry and a gazebo. I you showed me a picture of the big catfish that Mike caught. We watched a Pearl Harbor movie. The last time I saw you we went to pain management and we had a good time eating Crystal Burgers. Now you are in Heaven; with your baby girl, that you kissed through the fence as a child in Kentucky. That you thought was just your secret, but you didn't know it was her special secret. Now you are surrounded by the angels that are in heaven. Though the veil, I will always miss you. Love, Rhonda Hofmeier.
