Several years ago my brother Danny held a family reunion at St. Joseph's High School. Joe and his family came up from Florida. As children we spent a lot of time together, but drifted apart as our families went in different directions. At the reunion we were able to go back in time and relive some of those wonderful moments. I will never forget Joe's eyes lighting up as we brothers carried on, mimicking the antics from our childhood. Thank you Danny for putting us all together one last time.
I love you Joe,
Cousin John

Joe and I married in 1970 and divorsed in 1986. For awhile our relationship was strained, but for the past 10 or 15 years, we have been friends. I recently took Joe to SSA to apply for Medicare and he paid for my gas and we had lunch together. When I had to take him back to complete the process, he took us to lunch again. Joe was always a generous guy. It was one of the things I liked about him. He loved his kids and grandkids with intensity. He was always their biggest supporter; at every game cheering them on. He had a wonderful sense of humor and took ribbing with a grin. He brought out my sense of humor as no one else could and we laughed together alot. We spent every holiday together as a family and Now that he is gone, I'm very glad we were able to come to place of peace so that our kids and grandkids will have wonderful memories of all those times we spent together laughing asnd loving each other. I, too, will miss Joe.

The first time I met JoJo was 10 years ago at the Ale House and I thought he was a really sweet man with a kind heart. I was happy to become his daught-in-law. JoJo was a person that always lived life to the fullest and never did anything half way. He cherished his family and friends everday. He loved each and every one of them dearly. He will always hold a special place in my heart, I will miss so much! I love you JoJo
Love Always and forever

Joe and I became friends in the 5th grade in Baltimore. We grew up together and grew old together, and for 55 years he was my oldest and most cherished friend. We still laughed about things that happened in grade and high school. I'll miss you, pal. I was lucky to know you. Jackie, Brad, Kelly,my prayers are with you. Lanny Goodman
