To Joe's family,Connie, Gary, Mark, April and Julie, so very sorry to hear of your lost. May he be in a more comfortable place. I wanted to see you all in person last night at the calling hours, my mind had the times wrong. I was there at 6:00, so had a little good bye memory chat with Joe while I sat in my truck. I recalled the times at GLF that I was so grateful that the horse supplies were in the back corner of the store, so my dad could visit with Joe while I touched and wished for every item on the shelf. And of course our memories of Lake I wanna sink, playing outside for hours at end. ( tip toeing Julie) We all had fun. Most recently I saw Joe in Kingston, I am pretty sure he didn't recognize who I was, but he was just as pleasant, sweet and kind as always. May your family find peace in this place of rest. Love Diane

Joe and I both worked for Agway in the 80's and attended many training and purchasing meetings together. He was a wealth of knowledge and a great help to me when I was just starting out. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time.

Dear Mrs. Bartle and family, As your neighbor of 25 years I want to tell you how wonderful it was to drive by any time Mr. Bartle was in the yard, getting the mail or on the porch. He always had a great big smile and wave for me which really made me feel at home on Rickey Rd. Your love and care for each other was evident and a breath of fresh air as so many couples turn away from this kind of commitment, today. May the gift of memories bring you comfort, Mrs. Bartle. I was sad to have to move out of the area and will miss your warm smile, too:)
