I remember back in May 1979 at Plattsburgh AFB NY. Joey and Joan took Bernadette, Nicholas and myself in. We had just moved to the base and had no place to stay. They put us up. Opened their doors for the three of us. That says something about FAMILY. Joey was a great guy and good friend. Although we lost touch during our military careers, we have never forgotten the kindness that Joey and Joan showed us.
Our hearts go out to Joan, Randy, Brian, and Christina. We pray that the Lord guides you thru this time of sorrow, with His comfort and strength.
Stevie (cousin) and Bernadette Fusco
