Be Still

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

Dear Uncle Joe,

You have always had a special place in my heart, and I am so sorry that I did not have the opportunity to say goodbye. I will never forget your wonderful smile, kindness, or the fun vacations you took me and Priscilla on when we were little. God be with you and grant you peace.

Love you, Judy (Whimpsey)

Cleo and Dominic,
Words can't say how sorry I Am that Joe is gone. Even though I know he is so happy now. I'm going to miss him telling me to get him something or to do something. Watching him tap his foot when Ross played for us. Staying with him all afternoon. Most all the squeezeing of this hand telling me thank you when I left. Going to the trailer and eating dinner. Watching him in bubbles pulling up with Aj and Cleo on the sides. Him standing in the kitchen with his wranglers and boots and cowboy shirt and sunglass all happpy. Every valentines bringing Cleo her chocolates. So many memories. I'm going to miss that "Garcia " What i wouldn't give just to hear his laugh one more time. I love you with all my heart and we will get through this Knowing how Happy he is now and that he is no longer suffering here on earth. He is at peace. Watching down on us all. God bless love Tricia, Mariah , Elias and Devin

Toby and cousins, I will always remember Uncle Joe for his sense of humor and his many questions trying to figure out what his niece did for a living. I know you will miss him, as will I. We will remember him in our thoughts and prayers. Love
Mary Jean, Dave, Joaquin and Solana
