Dad you are the best man I've ever known. You were loved and respected by so many. There is a huge part of me that is missing now. You always made me feel loved and supported. I miss you so much it hurts. I miss our dinners. I miss our conversations. I miss your voice. I miss every part of you.
Rest in peace, dad. Please know how much I love you. Forever.

The grief from losing you has crushed me. The disbelief that we'll never talk again truly saddens me. However, I'm grateful there were no regrets between us. You were proud as to where I am headed in life & that YOU KNEW you were finally going to be a Grandparent.

I always appreciated Joe's insights and stories. He had a lot of history to share and was a wealth of information. You will be missed.

It would take too many words to describe what a fantastic guy Joe was! He always made you smile, he always made you laugh and tonight when I heard the news of his passing for the first time he made me cry!

Joe - You have left us too soon. As pledge brothers we had a fun time and built a solid friendship. It has been great meeting again and knowing you as adult. I regret I was gone from Seattle for so many years and that we had so little time after I returned. DeDe and I send our condolences to your wife and children. Memories of you will live on. Rest in peace.
