    In a world where good men are becoming more rare, Joe Shaw was a good and decent man, quit simply, the best of us.

    It’s with a broken heart I say good bye for now, however I’ll see you in the morning. Rest in peace Joe, you have fought long and hard. The battle is won. Rest in the arms of Jesus!

    We always enjoyed being in Joe’s company.
    He was a very kind and gentle man.
    We’re very sorry that we can’t be there to attend his celebration of life.

    God’s blessings to Dianne and family
