Carol, Joe, Kristen and family. We are deeply sorry for your loss. Joe was a good friend and a old school class guy. Whenever we got together the first thing he would ask is, how is the family? Joe loved talking about his family and you could see how much he loved all of you. Joe, you will be missed my friend. I hope they have horses in heaven. God bless all of you, Bill Schellbach and family.
