    Mr. Joe has been my neighbor for 50 years. I was 5 when he purchased his property. I remember so well the days that Sonny (his son-in-law) and him would build race cars and engines in the yard next door. They would crank up them engines and scare the crap out of you, when you were not expecting it. We got to where it would not scare us. We just said that’s Joe our neighbor when we had company over. I got married 2005. The four of us became really close. Cindy did my hair for the wedding. Her and Joe attended it. We all even when on a cruise together. My husband became like a adopted son to him. My husband felt as if Joe was his adopted Dad. They were always hanging out together and helping one another out with different projects that we all had going on. We saved each other a lot of money over the years for doing that. One night we played Monopoly! My husband and Joe decide they would purchase another Monopoly game. They took the money out of the new game and hid it around in the shop. They would get up and get another beer or ice and come back with more money in their pockets! Well, I finally caught on and busted them. They called it insuring a win. They laughed so hard but of course Cindy and I did not think to was so funny. Cindy said that her and I were never playing any games with them again! We would get in each other’s pool on Saturdays and play volleyball. Of course, we would watch the NASCAR races and bet on them against each other. There are so many things I will never forget about Joe and Cindy. They will forever be loved and in David and I’s heart. We miss you already Mr. Joe (R.I.P) Ms. Cindy (R.I.P.)
    Now the both of you can watch the races together again!
    Love always to the both of you,
    David & Debra Magouyrk

  5. Barbara Lamb says:
