Joe was such a character I was his Insurance Lady and he would come and visit frequently.  I will miss him bringing his home made wine and listening to his stories of adventures.  RIP Joe

I met Joe about 4-5 years ago down at the Exxon/Mobile gas/c-store on the corner of Sprague/Adams Rd. I and my
friend Bill Bess would be there having coffee and Joe would come in to buy is scratch tickets. One of the kids there
told us that any money he won he would donate it to the food bank.So as we got to know Joe more he would come
in show us the change he would find, and so I &Bill would give Joe any change we might have & if neither of us had
any change sometimes if I had but I would get change for it and give Joe some one morning(Sat/Sun) and the rest
the next. Sometimes if Joe did'nt win on his scratch tickets then once in awhile I would buy a couple of scratch
tickets and if I won I would give it to him. Joe would refuse but I told him to just put it with donation for the food bank.
One thing we got a kick out of was the little dance Joe would do if he usually won big($25.00 or more).

                                                                      REST IN PEACE JOE AND THANKS
                                                                       FOR YOUR KINDNESS & GENEROSITY
                                                                    YOUR FRIEND MITCH WILHITE
