Joe was a great big brother. As a kid I looked up to him. As an adult I admired him. He was always there whenever his family and friends needed him; his love for his family and friends was unconditional. I will miss his warm and welcoming smile and his I Love You hugs. Rest in peace my dear brother. I will miss you. Love, Carl.
