Loved Joe the first time I met him. Such a sweet and kind person comes to mind. He will be greatly missed at family and friends get-togethers. His wine was always a big hit and that is another cherished memory.

Joe and I would sit together in his room and talk about his gardens, his family and ask me to share a cookie or fruit that he had in his room. He always told me that I had a great smile and to share it with everyone.
He was a joy !
Let perpetual light shine upon him.
