Belinda, We were SO terribly sorry to hear of your father's passing. We spoke how he truly enjoyed his days at TR almost right up to the very end. We hope we can do the same. We will always remember his gentleness and dignity and will treasure our "Joe Gore Gallery" in our porch. Please accept our deepest sympathy. I am sending this e-mail as some of my previous cards to him came back to me so I must have had the wrong address. We send you our love. Sincerely, Mary and Dick

You surely do not know us, but we knew Joe from TR. Please accept our sympathy. Joe was a true gentleman, an avid member of WBCCI, and many of us at TR benefited from his sharing of his photo talents. He lived life well and graciously. May he now rest in peace. Sincerely, Barb and Mike

What a blessing it was for me to be present at Joe's Baptism in our Sunday School class a couple of years ago. I understand that Joe gained a lot of peace in his life. He was a great man, great servant of both his God and his country! God bless you with peace in the knowledge that he is now with God!

Joe and I were members of the Airstream Caravan Club. As such we'd had a number of domestic and international trips. We learned a was lot about each other. The trip that I remember most vividly was the trip to South Africa. Joe was the leader. He led us through the good and the bad (even getting lost). It was a lot of fun!

Judy and I are sorry to hear of your father's passing. We were very good friends with your parents when we had that Gourmet Dinner Club in Westerville. We visited with you on one of those occasions. We remember the many stories your dad told in regards to their travels, and especially the slide presentation he gave on one of their trips to New Zealand. We give you our condolences. Our friend, Joyce Geesey, informed us of your dad's passing. She and her husband Jack were also members of the gourmet club. She still lives in Westerville.
