Our love and prayers go out to all of you. We are very sorry that neither of us could make it down during this time, circumstances prevented us from being able to make the trip. We loved Joe and Mary Helen very much and even called them our Texas Mom and Dad.....there is not a day goes by that we don't think of them. Our memories of them will always be in our hearts and those will being smiles to our faces. Tom looked up to Joe so much in the Guards...Tom said he always made all the men feel like everyone was just one big family and treated everyone fairly....he definitely didn't hide his feelings about anything and that's why so many people honored him and looked up to him. He truly was the ideal American....he loved his country and proved it. He loved God, family, friends and this country with all his heart. He will missed more than anyone can realize by so many people that he touched their lives, so did Mary Helen. There are not enough words to describe those two wonderful people. May God bless you and help comfort you during this time.

I worked for Joe when he was the shop foreman of OMS 11. He was, without a doubt, the best boss that I have ever worked for. The thing that I remember the most is that he was honest and true to those around him to the point of total bluntness. It was either right or wrong and he did not mind speaking his mind. I remember how he and Jim Allen would get to telling war stories and each would try to top the other. We, in the shop, would encourage this because it would extend our break times. He showed, and had, total trust in those that worked for him. He encourage and guided every young soldier that came within his care. In all the years I worked for him, in retrospect, I don't remember him telling the same ones twice. His life experiences were rich and full. His tales were funny and sad at the same time. I truly believe that he was what ever soldier should strive to be. Tough - Fair - Honest - Brave. He was "G.I. Joe" and a true American Hero. He will be missed.

Just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you all. Joe was "one of a kind" and he touched so many lives. The memories I have of him and Mary Helen over the years will remain forever as treasured keepsakes in my heart.

Although we can't be there with you in person, know that we love you, and that we are truly saddened by your loss. Joe was an incredible man of incredible character. He was proud and honored to have served his country but.....we are prouder and honored to have called him our "Uncle".

Joe was always one of my favorite people. I loved to hear his stories. I wish to offer my condolence to his family. Your have the prayers of the Rhodes family during this time. God Speed.

I served with Joe for 13 years and never met one finer individual. He was tough when he needed to be but always considerate and caring. He taught me that serving God, family and country were not a duty, but an honor. Joe taught me that being a man was taking responsibility and standing up for myself and others who cannot. Joe was fellow soldier and friend of mine.
