Carolyn, So sorry to hear of Joe's passing away. We were best friends when he was 15 and I was 13. We camped out several times. On Sundays we would ride around in his Daddy's 56 green Chevy. Joe let me drive in the country which resulted in me getting my driver's license the day I turned 14. We double dated a couple of times, then we both got married and I moved to Greenville, and we lost touch.I will always have good memories of Joe and the Brown family. Frankie Teague
