Well my friends, it was time for me to say goodbye! I didn’t expect to leave so quickly but I can honestly say I have been truly blessed to have every one of you in my life.
I hope I was a sincere and honest man, and lived my life to the best of my abilities that God gave me.
I’m leaving my three girls behind to share my memories with. My mom, Barbara Barnett, thank you for always supporting me, I really never said thank you enough. My beautiful daughter, Elysheva, whom I am so VERY proud of, you’re so much smarter than me! And my wife, Margaret; Bears mate for life. I love you all. – Joe
