I was never blessed to meet Mr. Sill. I knew him through his precious daughter, Linda. I am so grateful that he has such a loving, dedicated and God-filled family. My heart, my prayers are extended to Mr. Sill's family. God has you all in his hands.

Mr. Joe was a sweet, gracious man who loved his family more than anything in this world. The care Miss Dottie, Linda, and Joe Jr. gave him was a reflection of the kind of husband, father, and friend he was. He will be missed greatly.

You all showed Mr. Sill how much he was loved up to his last day. What a blessing that is . I'm sorry that due to what's going on in the world you all don't get to experience in person the love and support your family and friends have for you and Mr. Sill . You are on the minds and in the hearts of many. Much love to you. Laura

Mr. Sill was so quick-witted, he always made me laugh. He could also play a mean banjo. He will be missed. ❤️ Lauri Shaw
