Dear Kay and family, especially Mike. It seems like only yesterday when I saw ya’ll. Kay you were with Joe at the Eagles, as loving as ever. Your head in front of Joe’s left shoulder and you both were smiling and looking at each other, lovingly, even when we were talking about something serious. Mike, seeing you at the police station working hard, like your father as expected was pleasing. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for making me feel welcomed. I just want to express that my thoughts and prayers are with you, especially today. God’s speed for your family in all things. Joe’s talent was his service and he served well.

Dear Kay, Bobby, Mary Catherine, Frankie and families. I was so sorry to hear of Joe’s passing. He was always such a nice person. Just yesterday, April and I were talking about his beautiful smile. I feel blessed to have been able to see him one more time in March. You are in our prayers. May God keep you all in his arms and comfort you in this difficult time.

My sincere sympathy to Joe’s wife and family. I worked at the Bankruptcy Court and Joe would usually stop and visit back in chambers on his rounds. He always had a smile and a good word.
Sincerely, Bonnie Buerk
