I will always remember the 4th of Julys at Lake Poinsett with the Kiner family and the fun times Kim and I had in the car you gave to Kim in high school. You always had a smile on your face and loved having a good time. Thanks for the memories. You will be missed.

Sending the entire family Love and Comfort during this difficult time and in the coming days.

(I am a distance cousin, from Ohio. My father was Robert Baker, (1924-1994) and he was the baby brother of Jean Baker Nelson and Georgia Baker Kiner! My father would have been Joe's, "Uncle Bob"" at the ripe, old-age of 15! Ironically, I was born on December 2nd as well, even if it was 1960!)
