    My uncle Joe Stroud was an incredibly kind, gentle and wonderful man. He was my mother’s oldest brother and she and he, in their older years, looked so much alike and their beloved parents. I will always cherish the times that we spent with him and his family on Darlark Road and in Florien at our grandparents’ home.

    Uncle Joe, you were a true gentlemen in every since of the word.

    I love you.

    Never has a man drawn so much respect in his life for thing he has done and been a part of. Brother Joe was that man, that brother Mason, that displayed what a life should be like, by living it with purpose and faith. He will be missed by more than those we know of; he is loved by more than he knew of. May God continue blessings to his family and friends, and those whose lives he touched.
