Linda and Family,
I am so sorry for the loss of Joe. I was lucky enough to have spent over 2 hours of quality time with him the week before he passed and he was alert and not tired the entire visit. We laughed and cried as we visited about many memories we had made.
The fun times at our cabins are too many to count. I remember the many great meals, bonfires, Joe's cigars. I will always remember when Joe made me his spaghetti carbonara which was AMAZING!
Joe was very special to me. He will be deeply missed. I am glad I got to say our goodbyes as he prepared for what was likely ahead. The world lost a great person and heaven just gained another angel.

I am so very sorry for your loss. I remember you guys from Multicare. Plus you were neighbors to my brother and his family.
Joe always came in with a smile on his face. It was a double pleasure when you two came in together. There was always some bantering going back and forth between you two.
My best memory was one time we saw you at a restaurant and then you two paid for our dinner. I will never forget that and your kindness.
Praying for you and your family as you find a new normal.
I feel blessed to have had our paths cross in this crazy life.
The Lord Bless and keep you in his care.
