It was an Honor and Pleasure to know my good friend JoJo. We worked together at the Post Office in Coppell. We were always together, some other guys would get jealous of us hanging together. We would laugh, when JoJo wanted to a smoke he would come by and give me that smoke sign and of course coffee! We worked together for over 10 years in Coppell. Sometimes we would go to IHOP for breakfast or to his house and Mrs. Linda would make us breakfast too. Sorry I m doing a whole history, but JoJo was and is a hard working man. I learned from him and many people didn’t realize how smart he was. He always spoke about his family and his Mother back in West Virginia. He got a chance to meet my Mother and she thought it was her brother my Uncle Joe. We had a good laugh, like I said JoJo was a special friend of mine. JoJo you suffered a lot for years buddy, now you’re in God’s Kingdom and will never suffer again. I will miss you my Brother. I hope one day we will see each other again. Sincerely. Your Brother Paul Islas Paul Islas , January 6, 2021 I had the pleasure of working with Joe at the Coppell Post Office. He was the most thoughtful guy and even made me a post office box replica for my birthday. I’m glad he is no longer suffering and am praying for his family
Debbie Birdsall, January 1, 2021 My brother in law was a good man with a generous soul. I will never forget how much he has helped me over the years. He will truly be missed. Jeannette Mcgough, January 1, 2021 I am sad that I cannot be there in person, but Uncle Joe was a good man. I have fond memories of him whenever he would visit us in New Mexico or Arizona. He was considerate and hard-working and he will truly be missed. Laurel Way, December 31, 2020 We will forever miss you, Papaw. Brandon & Ryan Camerlin , December 31, 2020 I am Ed Prince, Ben Camerlin's Father in Law. Deepest sympathy to all family on your loss. Ed Prince, December 31, 2020 We are so sorry for the loss.
