I was a student at Marshall in 1970. I did not know your uncle personally but I did attend his funeral. Your uncle was a great player and from what I knew a great person.

I am sorry that you miss him but I hope that you are proud of him.

My prayers go out to you and your family. Time will never erase your uncle. But I hope that your family has found some peace.

Monica, God bless you and your family that has endured so much painful memory and grief. Joe is missed, but as the head coach said in the movie I just saw, he is watching ever so. I was 10 when this tradegy happened, just two years after I lossed my brother, my only sibling from being hit by a car. He was only six years old. The guilt, grief and lossness was almost too much to bear for me and my family. The movie reminded me of the tradegy of lossing a family member so close.

You and your family are remembered, and my prayers go out to them now.
