More sad news I'm afraid. I am sorry to have to tell you all that our Poem Man, Joe, passed away on Thursday.

I know some of you know Joe or met him at the Bearded Collie events, he will be greatly missed, he always had a good story to tell and we had loads of laughs. I will treasure the memories. There are a lot of his poems on this forum so have a read, some will make you laugh but, be warned, some will make you cry so have the tissues handy!

Thinking of Carole and family at this sad time.

RIP Joe, I will miss you. xxxxxxx

Such sad news, we have met Joe and Carole many times at the Cornwall beardie get togethers and will miss Joe and his smiling eyes and gentle ways. I think we have one of his poem books.

Love to Carole and their family xxx

Thank you for letting us know Angie x

Oh no, what a shock! Joe was such a lovely man. I met him at the Beardie days & he always was welcoming & had a wonderful smile. He was a gentle giant & will be sadly missed by a lot of people.

Oh no, that is so sad indeed... I loved reading Joe's poems, and a few years ago I even translated one into French to post in my Beardie forum here, as it was so beautiful that I wanted to share it with my French friends. My deepest and most sincere sympathy to his family.
