We have lost a true lovable man

Saturday I heard from my farmer friend Jerry McIlhaney that his younger brother Joe passed away. Jerry is 63, Joe was 1 day shy of being 52. He struggled with advanced Down’s syndrome his whole life, but volunteered at Raccoon Volunteer fire hall for every function. Everyone including myself truly loved him. 2 years ago they removed one of his kidneys. He was never the same afterwards. My gf and Inwoukd stop in very often to check on him.

Between my health stuff and life I’ll still go to the funeral Thursday. This brings the big and little things into perspective and makes you realize what a wonderful man like Joe meant.
