Mr. Joe… I remember you at my dad’s work, Priority Chevrolet when I was growing up… You were a great mechanic. Praying for your family and friends and all those you came in contact with. Surely you will be missed. ((hugs))
His smile was contagious and his love for others always showed through. The world lost a great man, and he will be missed tremendously by those of us left behind. He was taken way too soon. Love to you all from the Knapp family.
What many would like to say of others, and hope it to be so, could indeed truly be said of Brother Joe Weatherly: He was a good and true Christian man. God bless you Sister Wanda, you are all in our prayers.
