Dear friends and family, This is Gail, Joe & Gloria’s Daughter. Please now that my grieving heart is filled with gratitude for your loving support. My father had died October 5th of last year. But preparing for my parents burial has broken my heart all over again, as if my father’s death was yesterday. My loving husband wanted me to postpone the burial but I need closure or my heart will never heal. I hope my dear friends will understand that I have decided to keep the plans for the 14th but only invite family members. With loving gratitude, Gail

A slideshow featuring Portraits of Joe Herring Sr.
This slideshow features portraits of my dad, Joe, from age 2 to age 82. He was born on November 27, 1928. I would have loved to have used his favorite music from Liberace but can’t due to copyright laws.
There are over 90 photos, so it may take a while to download.
Thank you for all your love and support.
Joe’s loving daughter,
JOSEPH F. HERRING Sr.

On Monday, Joe began to decline. The cancer has left him too weak to get out of bed or feed himself. It has also caused confusion and fatigue. He’s still able to receive visitors, so if you’d like to come by and cheer him up, please do.
Joe’s party on Thursday went very well. It lifted his spirit and his soul came back to life. Pics to come.
There will be a tribute to Joe at 2pm on Thursday, September 29th at Chapel Manor Nursing Home. Please call Gail and let her know whether or not you’ll be able to attend.
