I will always hold you close to my heart. There is so much you helped me, your goofy little ways, the times we had together, playing pool at your parents house. I am so sorry Rachel and Ray for the huge loss of your son. Joey showed us all his love, friendship, loyalty. I miss you and love you always.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. We met Joe thru racquetball with my lil bro. We all use to have so much fun. I will never forget the day we buried our mom and Joe placed a medal he won on my moms casket. Joe will forever be in our family's hearts.

Ray, Rachel and Renae, I am so sorry to hear about Joey's passing. Thinking back, I do not have one bad memory of him, he was always sweet and caring, of course, he was a little brother so there was the picking at each other, but as far as little brothers go, he was wonderful! I miss him and you guys and wish I could be with you now in this time of grief. I wish you all peace. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I love you all!

Ray, Rachel and Renae, I have no words that can take the pain away, but please take comfort in knowing that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Joe was a terrific kid and practically a little brother to Melody (Ody). Whenever I picture him in my mind, he is always smiling. My heart hurts for you all. May God give you all that extra measure of grace to help you through this very difficult time. Karen Norton (Vacaville, CA)

Through my tears I can smile as I think about our bathroom chat!! You were and always will be special to me. Watch over us all as only you can do. We are all going to need it. Hey is there a bathroom in heaven ~ see you then!

It was a great honor to have had Ponch in my family's life. We will miss him very much. I remember when we bowled together he would be goofing off and laughing and would bowl high 200's and not even try. We had many great times hanging out at Ramstein or Vogelweh Bowling Center. Cosmic was our fun time smile,laughs, and just being silly !!!!! R.I.P Ponch you will never be forgotten and our thoughts go out to your family and friends........

Joe lived with laughter in his heart inspired others to pursue their passions and to believe in themselves. It was an honor and priviledge to be his friend and to have served with him. We will miss him very much.
