    Joe was my original best friend when I was a little boy growing up in Fulbright! There wasn’t much for a boy to do being so far from town but Joe got me started fishing! He was a very patient man cause I remember a lot of great times him standing behind me reaching around to try to help me learn to cast one of his zebco 33’s. When I finally caught on to what he was telling me he sat me down and had a talk with me about taking care of things of value! The talk didn’t mean quiet so much to me at the time but when he gave me his rod and reel to keep and use I knew what it meant to him! I miss the sound of him coming to the house on his tractor just putting along to go fishing! I will shut up now! Rest in peace till we can fish together again!
