We're were classmates ('65 Stebbins High) but our paths never crossed after we graduated. You were nice, quiet and personable. Your smile drew others to you always.
We'll meet again someday at a wondrous, heavenly reunion.
Hugs, prayers and comfort to everyone ...

Uncle Joe, I have such wonderful memories of you fishing at the lake, cooking me chicken wings at new year's eve parties (only butter) and the mornings I would come to work at the shop and you would be standing at the counter talking to dad. But my favorite memory will always be the tradition you carried on and mom will continue to carry on of grandma's chop suey. RIP uncle Joe. You were such a strong fighter!

Joe, I was going to say this at the Funeral, but I think it's best I say it here. Just some memories from our lives together. From way back when we were kids playing in the woods, and picking berries for Mom to make us jam. Sitting in Mom's garden with a salt shaker eating tomatoes. Then when we were older and on Friday nights we would have party's in the basement, my girl friends and your buddies and Mom would even join us sometimes all the kids loved her. Mom and I showing up at the pay lakes at night and surprised you and the guys and fish with you for hours. There are so many more but you know that, can't go on forever. But just one last one. Then there was the time you moved to New York, and came home cause it was so cold there, and had no job, and no where to live so you moved in with me. You would go out and come home and want to talk half the night. Then one night you came home and told me about a lady you met. And the rest is history because you met your soul mate Ethel, and well we all know the rest of the story from there. You told me she was the one. And she must have been she's still there. Well I know God opened his arms wide when he seen you coming. The best big brother any sister could ever want to have from childhood to now. Love You, and Rest in peace, Shirley.

Joe, you are a cousin whom I rarely had contact with, but always smiled when I learned of your "inherited green thumb" results, love of outdoors, and family.
So glad you had chosen my dad as your godfather. So glad I had opportunity to have great conversations with your mother.
Thank you for serving our country.
Blessings and grace be with your immediate family as you make your way to heaven.

Joe, the greatest big brother a girl could have since we were children right up to the end. I thank God we spoke just a few days before your accident. And ended our conversation as we have for years now with I Love you Joe I Love you to. What wonderful words to have, to always be the last ones we ever spoke.

Joe,
You were the kind of person that everyone admired and respected. Anyone who knew you wanted to gain your respect and love including me. I have so many good memories of you and that is what I will hold dear to my heart when I think of you. The favorite times when we would come over and visit for hours with you and sit on the deck that you built just talking about anything and everything while looking at all of the Brandy Wines tomatoes.
I still have safely packed away the little outfit that you brought home for me from Viet Nam when I was a baby, and the doll and shoes that all of my life as a kid I would sit on a shelf in my room. The short time that you lived with us was a time that I was so happy knowing you were close by.
I will always share my memories of you with those close to me. The pictures of you when you were a baby until the now. I will say to everyone… that was my Uncle Joe, you will never be forgotten. May you Rest in Peace.
Love
Mary
