Melissa, I was so sorry to hear of the passing of your husband. All of us at Wal-Mart send our heart-felt condolences to you and your children. We are thinking of you and praying you find peace.
I am so sad that I’m just finding out about Joe’s passing…once he moved from the Monticello IN area, I lost touch with him. He was one of the nicest people I had ever met. He was so nice that some people around here took advantage of him. But anyways, I hope that the family is doing as good as possible. All my love and best wishes to the family, always…
