Linda & Family,
Though I hadn’t seen Joseph since Roy’s passing my memory of him as a sweet, polite little boy will remain with me. I don’t know the loss of a child, but I can relate to the loss of a sibling. The love and memories will remain forever; embrace those memories and find comfort in knowing just how much Joseph was loved by so many.
You and your family will remain in my prayers.

I miss you so much baby brother. My heart is broken. You meant the world to me and whether you were right or wrong, I was always on your side. Make some noise up there and jam with daddy. I can almost hear him say "get up here boy & don't slam that door". Love you little brother. Til we meet again..

Joseph was such a versatile individual. He touched everyone in a different way. He was a father, son, brother, nephew, cousin and friend to everyone on a different level. We all have great memories with him and they will be cherished till we see him again. He was my brother and my favorite little patient. My great faith will sustain me knowing that he is at peace with His Lord. Till we meet again hugs and kisses.

Sometimes people didn't know if you were joking or not LOL! That was always funny. The debates that you had with me over politics were memorable! By the time we were finished, we both needed a drink. You were stolen away too early. Cancer is a big bully as we always said. I love you, but you already knew that, and i am so glad you knew it. You are a part of me, and forever in my soul~ John loved your singing voice and always thought it was just the best! You loved playing Blue the guitar that had been passed around! Everybody played Blue! You are loved by so many people! I had no idea you knew so many! You're just a great guy. ~j~

Joe, you were my best friend at one point in my life. Honestly the most important point, my childhood. Having you for an older brother always humbled me. You had so much depth as a person. Your sense of humor molded me into who I am today. Every time I’m complimented on being “funny” I think of you. I loved you so deeply. And even though our paths were different, and we lived in separate states; when we were under the same roof we made memories I’ll never forget. I love you, and I hope I see you again some day. Your little sister loves and misses you forever.
