    Mr. Pope (Joe) was a kind and caring man who had a smile as big as his heart. He was always there when we had an idea about a house remodeling project and he turned those ideas into realities! His excellent skills made our house a much more beautiful and comfortable home. We feel so blessed to have known him and he will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his sweet wife, June, and the entire family.
