We only met Joe twice when he came to our place but he made a big impact. We will never forget him sprawled out on our couch the first time he was here saying it was the most comfortable he's ever been in his life. Second time he was here he sang a song for everyone. We will never forget "Fighter Joe" or the haymakers he landed on Jameson. Always in our thoughts and memories. 😢🥰😢🥰😢🥰😢🥰🥰

Nobody on earth could ever have not loved Joe. He was just too likable. Now he gets to spread his joy to the lucky people in heaven. Sad for all of us, but at least we can all say we were lucky enough to know Joe Fisher.
