We are so sorry to hear of the passing of your beloved Joe. He was such a character and you always knew where you stood with him as he didn't shy away from expressing his opinions which made him so memorable and respected. The photo you chose is exactly how I remember him as he never seemed to age. May the memories that each of you have for him remain in your hearts as you face all the firsts without him. Our sincerest and deepest sympathies to your entire family.
