    I was so saddened to hear this. Joe always brought a smile to my face through all of his orneriness. I don’t think a day went by that I didn’t see Joe smile when he was in school at Ashland-Greenwood. I am glad I had a chance to learn a thing or two from Joe! My condolences to the family.

    To the Nissan Family n all of Joe’s friends. This really shocked n saddened me when I read had happened. My thoughts immediately went to my brother Brad n all the times Joe n the kids were around Brad at his n Mona’s house. Joe was a great guy, always made me laugh n was very kind to me. I’m so sorry for your loss, but I bet Brad was standing in line to greet him n help him adjust to his forever home in Heaven.
