Joe was one of Marcus Durden's truest friends ,,, they set under the shade and worked together for many a years .. even went fishing, cain grindings and other fun stuff together ... Joe was like a brother ... the Uvalda community will miss him .. but we will get to enjoy each other again now .. we can walk the streets of gold together.. Sorry Anthony and family for your loss I posted this because my Dad (Marcus Durden) always said if I go first make sure Joe's family knew how much he meant to us ....
