" To Everything There Is A Season, And A Time For Every Purpose Under Heaven ".
Uncle Joe lived through many inspiring seasons -WWII, The Drum Corp, Family Milestones - I have fond memories of Dad and Uncle Joe building Twin Maple Drive in Bethel and having block parties - his humor - especially when he told the Bishop to 'smack me again' as sponsor at my confirmation at St.Mary's, and his love for baking. I will cherish these and many memories always! Miss you, love you. Weezee OX
