So sorry to hear of Joe passing. He was so good to me when I started at the Beckley Post Office. Tom said he used to go to his house and has fond memories of him. Joe was a really good man and probably never realized he had such a positive effect on his fellow employees. Just wanted to tell you that. May you have peace in the days to come.
