  1. Linda, Cory and family -my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Joe was one great guy and he will truly be missed – as long as I have been dancing – never have I run across someone who could glide on the dance floor like Joe. My heart breaks to have lost such a wonderful friend who was as well a wonderful brother and Dad. He is now dancing on the biggest – best dance floor ever!! Save me a dance Joe! Love you!

    Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. We have known Joe for many years. He was always such a sweet guy and will be missed. May God wrap his arms around each of you in this difficult time and in the days ahead.

  3. Linda,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you during this trying and difficult time. Joe was a great guy and I enjoyed dancing with him a few times and also watching him dance. Heaven has gained another guardian Angel to watch over you. Just remember that you are not saying Good-Bye to Joe…it’s see you later brother!!!

    Linda, Cory and Cindy,
    Though I have only known Joe a little over a year, I can only say, I wished I had known him longer. His gentle spirit and warm smile could make your day. As he danced across the dance floor when my band was playing, I marveled at the ease that he had as he “glided” along. I will forever be grateful to the Lord for allowing me to sing for him!

  5. So sorry for your loss. May God comfort you as only he can. I did not have the privilege of knowing him, but I know the pain of loss. Tony and Shannon are my family and I know they and all of you will need comfort at this time.

  6. Goodbye dear friend., you will be greatly missed. Joe was a great friend to so many. He was always ready to help you out by fixing something at your house, giving you a ride to a dance (he was the designated driver for many of us), fixing a meal that he would share with anyone that wanted to stop by and sharing vegetables from his garden. There are so many memories that I will treasure. Cory, Linda and all of the family, my heart goes out to you.

    Linda , Cindy and Family,
    Joe was a super nice person and a wonderful dancer. His smile warmed the hearts of those around him. He danced like a angel on this earth and I know he is dancing with the angels in heaven. My prayers are with you and your family. May God fill your hearts with peace and the wonderful memories he left for you.
    Blessings to All

  8. Linda,

    So sorry to lose Joe. He was such a gentle spirit and a bright light! I am privileged to have known him and even more privileged to have danced with him. Glad he’s no longer in pain. I’m sorry I won’t be able to attend the visitation or funeral. I am the only one working both those days.

  9. Linda, I am so sorry you lost Joe. He was such a wonderful cousin to have been blessed with. Though I haven’t been around Waco for almost 30 years, I will forever cherish playing with the one who both got me in the most trouble with Priscilla Harrell and entertained me the most simultaneously. I always loved him and will miss his being in the world. God bless you and him.

  10. So sorry to hear of Joe’s passing. I had not seen or heard from him in many years, but will always remember what a nice person he was. May God comfort you all during this time.

  11. I’ve known Joe a long time,at work and away. Arrow head hunting,and fishing with my daughter. He got a kik out of meeting one of my relatives who was very knowledgeable of arrowheads ,and shared there collections. Can’t tell you how many times he pulled us out of a bind at work. I learned alot from him. Rest well my friend.

    Condolences to the STEWART family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your whole family. Psalms 147:3 says God, “heals the broken hearted, and binds up their wounds.” May God bring you comfort and peace.


    Dearest Joe, It’s been four years but it seems like only yesterday. I sure do miss your smile and jokes and dances. You were a good friend. Save a waltz for me! Love ya, Nancy
