To all the members of the Law family. Our deepest, sincere sympathy. There is so much I remember of Joe. Joe had a tremendous amount of character and I had a very high level of respect for him. I learned things about life from Joe, just watching and listening to him. He was a strong family man and he will be greatly missed. Wade & Nancy

To the Law family. My deepest sympathy's are with you. Joe was a good man. He will be missed a lot by all of his friends especially at the m-burg club. I remember asking joe why he didn't sit at the bar " he said I like standing and it is good for my circulation". He was a funny man and well liked. He always like the tomatoes I use to give him. I always called him Mr. Joe out of respect for all he has done in his life. He will be missed.   Sincerely, Mike Sacoman
