I was so shocked when I received the sad news of Joe's death. I was in the same class with him from kindergarten all the way to college at Georgia Southern University. He lived just a couple of doors down from me in the apartment complex in Statesboro. I'll never forget our kindergarten graduation where Joe was dressed as the doctor and I was dressed as the nurse. Joe will always hold a special place in my heart. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time.

To Joe's Family and Friends, I have been friends with Joe for about 4 yrs. I don't have to tell you how he touched people's lives. I noticed that when Joe was in town visiting, everyone's mood was just happier. My memories of Joe will make me smile (and cry) for the rest of my life.

We were so shocked and saddened to hear about Joe's tragic death. Our hearts ache for you. We can only imagine the pain you must be feeling. Joe was handsome, vibrant, and energetic. I remember him coming by our house sometimes when he was in high school and visiting with Nancy. He was the guy others wanted to emulate. Tom and I will pray for your family, that God will help you through this. Our deepest sympathies.

Please accept my sincerest condolences. I am always saddened when someone dies,especially so young. Although they are at peace, we still miss them very much. Jesus Wept just before he resurrected Lazarus. What comforts me the most is the promises Jesus made of a resurrection (john 11:25) and of Seeing them again and Living Forever with our loved ones, in Paradise (John 3:16,36; Psalm 37:29) (luke 23:43). What also comforts me is that these promises may also comfort your family as well. “Blessed are those who mourn, since they will be comforted” (math5:40; 2Cor1:3,4).
