Daddy I cannot believe you are gone. I can never hug you, hear your laugh or talk to you again. I know you are in a better place and free of what troubles you. I love you so very much. Until I see you again….love your baby girl.
I miss you daddy. You were the very best father and loving to mom for 51 years. I know you are in no more pain
Great man who had a great sense of humor and he allowed nothing to bother him and he raised 2 wonderful daughters that he loved and protect at any costs! I am grateful for the opportunity to have known him and no words can describe the love and respect that Belinda gave for him. Great role models of how love and parenting should be for everyone! Thx for the laughs!
Great man great dad great husband great sense of humor
Just checking and had no idea about Joel, so sorry to hear this. Haven’t seen him in years but we grew up good friends, our dads were in the war together. He moved to Greenville from WC. He used to stop in Rockwall where I worked and visit. Rest In Peace my good friend.
Haven’t seen Joel much in years but still laugh at our Possum Kingdom fishing trip…enjoyed our time together on Rockdale.
