Shockley Family,Tina, Joe, Diane, David, William, Jonathan, Josh, Little Joe, Michael, Shane, Corie, Autumn, Christina, Christopher, Anthony, and whomever I may have left out. I wanna give my deepest condolences for Papa Joe. He was a good man and lived a good long life. He loved his family and wasn't hesitant to accept others with open arms. But also not hesitant to tell someone like it was. He taught me a few things that I will never forget, turtle stew was one. I respected him as I imagine I would have my own papa and loved him the same. I do want to thank Everyone Else as well for giving me the opportunity to be a part of this family. Yall are definitely what family is supposed to be about. With all respect, Rest In Peace Papa Joe, you will never be forgotten.Love Y'all,Lee Lamb

Joe and I grew up neighbors and attended Holly Grove Baptist Church. We spent many hours playing and working on the farm. We revisited his old home place last year (2020) and reminisced over passed events and visited old land marks.Love to the family, William and Carolyn Brown
