Our thoughts are prayers are with the entire Wiseman family. Joe and his family have been our neighbors for 8 years, and in that time, he has always been gracious and kind. Just an honestly great guy. Would lend a hand without thinking twice. We would always talk about keeping up with the pool and would offer each other advice and tricks on keeping it clean. We will miss the sounds of him playing in the pool with his wife and kids during the summer. Joe would work so hard on keeping the pool especially clean so that the kids could go in anytime. We always knew when Joe got home from work, as we would hear the girls get all excited in the pool, saying "Daddy, watch me, watch me! Daddy, did you see me?" His loss is heart wrenching and I pray that God wraps him up in His arms and holds him close. We also pray that He looks after those left behind and guides them through their unimaginable grief. We will miss you, Joe. And to his family left behind, wife, daughters, mother, siblings, in-laws, friends. . . our hearts and prayers are with you and please know that we are here if you need anything.
