My dear Skinny,

I'll never forget the way you greeted me with a warm "Hi Precious;" the way you peered over your glasses instead of wearing bi-focals; your incredible math skills; the amount of times you yelled, "Count your cards, asshole" while playing 5 Crowns; the time your feet turned blue from the listerine foot bath; your sweet tooth; the effort you put into flattening your sandwiches before you took a bite; how you added salt to your pizza and ketchup and there would be more on the table than the plate; your selfless commitment to the band and guard program, spending hours loading the truck, driving to competitions, painting, cheering us on, etc.; your constant farmers tan; the way you wore your phone on the back of your belt (and being the only person I knew that actually used the belt clip); the way you said coffee (cawfee); being woken up early in the morning when you would stir said coffee so loudly; the way you said whatever was on your mind - no filter; how you would spend hours sitting outside catching butterflies; the way you would shake your head and say "oh, that's good" when taste-testing food; the many Monday nights we spent at the bowling alley; how you added an "r" sound to words that ended with an "a"...and so much more. Thanks for being a part of my life. I hope you are up there eating lots of peperoni sandwiches, lays potato chips and chocolate cake...can't forget the coors light! I'm glad you are pain-free and with the angels. Rest in peace.

Love,
Precious

Joey (as I knew him) was in my class in Junior High School 101. We played together in the school band and had nothing but a great time. We were both Throgs Neck kids and I remember the boats he named 4Q and 4Q2. Our only contact since then has been over Facebook. It has been maybe 50 years since I have seen him, but from all I could glean, his humor and great humanity were fully intact. I send my deepest condolences to his family. You are lucky to have had such a lovely, positive person in your lives.

I knew Joe when we were in our 20s. He was a great dancer and was alway a willing partner to us girls at Anna’s Harbor.

Godspeed, my friend. I enjoyed our times at Trivia Night. You were a comfort to me when I was diagnosed with colon cancer. Rest easy, Joe.You have earned it.

May the angels watch over you, Joe. I've known you since our teenage years and was glad to catch up with you again at your sister's house. You fought hard on this battle. Now it's time to continue on your soul's journey in peace and with the knowledge of all of those who love you. God bless you, Joe. Rest well.
