Memories Timeline


  1. Toe Ridenour says:

    Joe’s legacy shall not be measured by his acts nor deeds but by his absence. We all feel his absences.
    Joe and I were in high school together and we played baseball in college, where Joe was an outstanding
    left handed pitcher. But, he was a far better man and friend. If you were a friend of Joe’s, he would
    follow you to the end of the earth, even if you were wrong. He would be telling you the whole way that you
    were wrong, but he would be right there with you.
    Terecia, while Joe is not physically with us, he is alive in our heart.
    Joe has been called home and is very comfortable. That has to be a comfort to you.

  2. Betty Seivers Vann says:

    Terecia, I was a classmate of joes at chs, class of 65, I was so glad I was able to spend a little time talking with him at our last gathering, not much time though because he had someone else to talk too, seems as though he wanted to talk to everyone while he was there. May God give you comfort in your time of sorrow

  3. Carol Pennington Jamerson says:

    Oh Terecia, you must know our hearts are just broken, we all love Joe so much. He was
    such a big personality and I will always smile when I think of him. I hope you can somehow
    find some peace in his passing. We all love you and are here if you need us.

  4. Wilma Mauney says:

    Terecia – so sorry to hear about Joe. This has been a long struggle for both of you. I always have to smile when I think of Joe – always laughing and smiling with a few words o! wisdom for the day! Please take care of yourself during this challenging time and know you are in my thoughts.

  5. Sarah Johnson says:

    Terecia our hearts go out to you. Know everyone from Clinton remembers Joe’s smiling face and big heart. May God be with you. Cookie Robinson Johnson

  6. Ron Kirksey says:

    Tericia and family: Sorry about Joe and the rough struggle you both have had. I’m CHS Class of ’65 but Joe and I go back a lot longer than that — elementary school, school sports and just hanging out. What a great guy. He will be missed. We all share your grief and we’re thinking of you and your family. It’s hard to think of Joe, even now, without smiling.
