My Brother Joe

On December 3rd, I sat in front of Zion Gate Missionary Baptist Church at my brothers funeral. It was rumored to be one of the biggest funerals in Kankakee history. I do not know if that is true, but it was the biggest one the church and the funeral director ever had. Everyone talked about my brother and all I heard was “Joe Buck” this, “Joe Buck” that. I never knew this person the community grew to love. I only knew Joe… Both great guys but on 2 different levels. I am not ready to open the can of worms about his death yet, maybe another day. I will share a few artificial I found on him.
