I’m at a loss of words to describe the sorrow I feel knowing that there will be such much of our lives that we won’t get to share with you. My only wish was to at least of been able to give you one last hug and to tell you how much I loved and appreciate the life you had given me. Lots of laughs, lots of crying, lots of fights and lots of love. I wouldn’t trade any of those moments or of had them any other way because they’ve made me who I am today. You’re gone too soon dad, but maybe it’s for the best. I’m choosing to find comfort in knowing that you aren’t struggling/hurting anymore and I’m thankful for that. I’ll just miss you. Whether I told you enough or not, you were my hero and in many ways I idolized you. I know you’ve left an imprint in this world and you meant so much to so many people. Our whole purpose in life is to leave this earth better than we found it and I believe you’ve certainly done that. I love you dad and I’m ready for the day that I can finally see you again. Rest easy.

I have too many memories too choose just one. But the last day we had together was the most precious and important day of my life. It meant so much to me for all the things you shared. And to know you felt the same as me. I loved growing up with you. You were a great brother Joe. You were a great friend. You will always be my Hero. I needed more time with you.But I guess you could not stay. I know I will see you again.I hope you know how much I love you. That I will always love you. You will live forever in my heart. In the hearts of so many people. You will never be forgotten. My only consolation is knowing that you can rest again. You are not hurting anymore. I wish I could have taken the pain away. Jesus will do what i could not. Sleep in Peace Brother. I will see again.

He was a normal young boy that grew to be a loyal American soldier, a wonderful husband, father, son, grandson, nephew, cousin, and friend to all of us !!!! I couldn't be more proud of anyone as I am of you Joe !!! I love you and will see you again!!! Your in God's hands now!!!

I served with him in 2004 in Iraq. We had some fun times in the tight quarters we had in the Gomer pile tents. Rock floors and 30 guys or more on the tent. He was a great guy who told me I was going to get a tattoo when I get home but I never did. But some great laughs and a great guy who left us too early. Love you joe
