In his mournful post, Joe praised his grandpa’s knowledge and shared a black and white photo of the grandfather during his younger days. In the pic, Grandpa Miller is sitting on a cool car, posing for the camera with a serious but mesmerizing look on his face:
Joe then wrote on Twitter:
The funniest guy in any room. The knowledge he had. The epic life he lived. Thank you for teaching me… http://t.co/6PPHEA91Rn

Good News Coming For The Jonas Brothers
But when one door closes, another opens. Despite the family’s great loss, they still have good news as Danielle Jonas is set to deliver her first child some time in February. The soon-to-be first-time mom recently flaunted her ever-growing bump as she showed off their little girl’s cute wardrobe.
That ought to brighten things up. In the meantime, our thoughts go out to the Jonasfamily during this difficult time.
