I will always have great memories of my Uncle Joe. He made me laugh to tears more than anyone. My son's middle name is Joe in honor of the memorable times I had with him growing up. We didn't see each other often because of the long distances but when we did we always had great time; such as, golfing and fishing and of course laughing. Uncle Joe you will be truly missed.
Love Billy.
