Joe has been enjoying his new home in heaven for nine months now. He started on that journey October 22nd just about now. A Saturday, such as today at 1:42p.m. My heart was broken, I thought beyond repair. But that wasn't true. I'm slowly healing. I have times when flashbacks of him being so sick overwhelms me and the tears flow freely. But a trusted friend said when that happens, think of happy times we had. Sweet, funny and treasured memories. In doing that, there are more smiles than tears now. One of our favorite movies was "Sound of Music" and the song My Favorite Things. And today I chose to show pictures of some of Joe's Favorite Things.
|A vehicle that was spotless inside and out. For our RVer friends, Yes that's a bottle of the Solution in his hand.|
|He loved working in the yard. Our landlord told him one time, "Joe you can be gone six months at a time and your yard looks nicer than someone who is home every day"!|
|A yellow rose bush was always his favorite|
|He loved pitching horseshoes|
|And participating in tournaments|
|Pickleball was another of his favorite things.|
|His happy place was behind the wheel|
|And sunshine always put a smile on his face.|
THAT MAN IS A SUCCESS
who has lived well,
laughed often and loved much:
who has gained the respect
of intelligent men
and the love of children;
who has filled his niche
and accomplished his task;
who leaves the world better
than he found it,
who looked for the best in others
and gave the best he had........
That was my Joe.
Bye for now.
I'll love you for ever and for always
Your Betty Girl
