Hello Aunt Joyce, cousins Jeff and Lisa. I want to convey my condolences to you and your families in regards to Uncle Joe's passing away. I only met him a few times but he left an impression as I can still see his face in my memory. Thank you for sharing all the photos of him with family and friends. Jeff and Uncle Joe look like two peas in a pod. I love my back east family and I pray you all find comfort in your own way.
