To the Bowdoin Family, Biily Joe was my grandparent's neighbors from 1980 until his move to the retirement center. I was 16 when I meet him and he was always such a sweet guy. The thing I remember most is he would tell my grandpa I wish I was younger so I could marry your granddaughter, of course my grandpa would tell him Billy Joe she doesn't want and ol fart like you. He would even tell Mae that after they married & we would all get a big laugh out of it. He was a big cut up and liked to have fun. I will miss his funny humor. My prayers and thoughts are with the family. May God Bless you at this difficult time. Lisa Gaskamp
