I was very sorry to read about your loss. I hope you can find comfort in the words found at Isa. 33:24 which says that soon no one will say 'I am sick.' You have my deepest sympathies. May your memories provide a measure of comfort.

Mrs. Antonacci, My dearest sympathies at Joe's passing. I and others at the LDS Family History will surely miss Joe' quiet hello's when he came into the center and the conversions we have had about Family History. It was a pleasure to have known him.

Jackie and family,
Please accept my condolences in the passing of Joe. I knew him to be a soft spoken man of the community. The silence will be deafening.

What can one say that will truly be of any consolation? Maybe knowing that friends care will help ever so slightly.
Take care, Jackie,

Hello Mrs Antonacci:

I am an old friend of Joe (Joe-Joe as we called him) that grew up in the 50's in Euclid. He lived with his Uncle and Aunt (Hoekman's) behind us, early on, before his family moved to Eastlake. In the 80's, I ran into Joe when he worked at Parker, which was one of my clients. He was always easy going. Never changed. He knew me as "Mickey". My sister Maxine told me about his passing. With deep sympathy,
Mike Gerl

Aunt Jacke,
I don't think I ever told you how important you and Uncle Joe were in my life and how I loved going to your house for holidays. When I was little I couldn't wait to go to your house and spend time with you and Uncle Joe. I loved it all, the dinners on Easter and Thanksgiving, walks in the woods, playing in the yard and even watching TV in the rec room. Later you welcomed me into your home in Florida with trips on the pontoon boat and swimming with the manatee. I cannot express in words how sorry I am for your loss and how sorry I am for not visiting more often, I will always regret that. I will not forget Uncle Joe and I will try to keep in touch with you more often from now on. Love, your nephew Carmen

Dear Jackie,

Our deepest sympathy on the loss of your Joe. You don't know me and I never met Joe face to face, but Joe was a distant Carlozzi cousin and I am one of many lucky people around the country that he helped with his Italian family history research. He was a great guy and a real beacon, lighting up the shadows of our past and we will all miss him.

Sincerely,

For the Vaccariello, Sivillo, Carlozzi, Pettigrosso and Cornacchione families from Matrice
