Mr. Sweat was a great guy from what I hear for years. I did not have a close relationship with him or his wife but shared a few decades with all of their children and grands. Everyone of them thought highly of this man. He took on a wife that already had several children degades ogo. Everyone of them call him dad. This is a reflection of the man. He fulfilled his vow until death do us part, with his wife. This is a reflection of the man. He raised and loved a few generations of anothers children and never batted an eye as he worked the whole way through. This is a reflection of the man. WOW. His wife must feel such a loss as we can't imagine. My prayers that God bring her great comfort and deliver his strength in this much needed time.
I spent years of my life living down the street from this man, he was a good friend of my dad's.(Gene Woodruff) I spent some nights there, just playing and having a good ol' time. They are a wonderful family. I will miss ol joe.
