Joe,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time. While, I did not know your mother I have a feeling that I have experienced her influence through our friendship and work together. Losing my mother this year as well, I realize that is difficult to lose a loved one, especially a mother, but our loss is absolutely heaven's gain.
Thinking of you and your Family

I didn't know Joe's mother but reading through these messages, it is evident that Joe is a lot like his mother.
Joe and I are on the same team at Grainger and the 1st similarity I see between the two is the big infectious smile they both have!
Joe, know that you are in our prayers during this difficult time!

To Joseph, Kelly and The rest of Ms Linda’s Family, My condolence to each of you. I only met Ms Linda once and that was at Joseph and Kelly’s wedding. Her smile was so vibrant as she danced the mother and son dance with Joseph ❤️. Cherish the memories, trust God to be your strength when the weight gets heavy. And even when it’s light trust God he will bring you through. Much 💕 to you all. God Bless.
