  7. Uncle Joe,

    Olivia and I will miss you every single day. Still can’t believe you are gone. I can still hear your loud voice and hilarious jokes echo through my house. You are the funniest human being to ever bless my life. I will look back at the countless photos and videos I have of you to brighten up my day throughout the rest of my life. My heart is heavy and I am sad, but I know that you are in Heaven with Daddy Pepaw, Grandma Sandy, Grandma Grace and Uncle Chris and that makes my heart happy! Give them big Joe hugs from all of us and watch over this huge crazy family of yours. Love you always and forever, to Heaven and back.
