I am praying for family healing.
My wife just got out of the hospital. I am sad that I will have wait to give Sr. a hug. Also I am sad to find out that I missed his service.
I met Joe and his Brothers at Rocky Flats. I also went to apprenticeship school with Joe. I cherish many fun/great memories. Loved his great laugh. I talked to him last year and knew he had cancer. He didn't let on that is was advanced.
My friend Jose "staloco" Rest in Peace.

GOD please comfort and heal Joe Jr. ,Valerie and whole family. Amen and Amen

Nurse CJ here. I worked with Joe mainly for the evening and night shifts. He akways smiled when I arrived. It was easy to get him to laugh at a joke. We shared Hispanic roots yet his Spanish was amazingly poor, and he knew it. :) I found his family to always be available for a talk about life, sports, and anything that tickled his fancy. Their patience at all times was admirable. Thank you "Brandon" for your support so many times. My appreciation for working with Joe and getting to know his family is immeasurable.
