...letting y'all know...

...that my father-in-law passed away last Saturday at the age of 74... from congestive heart failure.

Joe Reed was a very great man, who never met a stranger and would literally give you the shirt off of his back.

He was a 'handyman' who could plow through a total house painting / wallpapering project in the time it would take me to paint a closet... and pretty much do anything from unclogging a drain to cutting down a tree...to...well, you name it, if he couldn't fix it (which was a rare occurrence) he knew 2 or 3 other folks who could...  

He took care and helped many older folks, primarily widow ladies... that's in the Bible, y'all... from mundane daily tasks to major issues, he was caretaker to many who had nobody else...

LOVED his grandkids... they called him 'Daddy-Daddy'... Rebekah came up with that one...

I am blessed and bettered by knowing him, as MANY are...

He will be greatly missed by ALL.
