Joe, Your support, guidance, clarity and knowledge helped me adapt to my new life, location and career. I am not sure where I would have landed without you. My family and I will always be grateful for your compassion. You were always willing to share your experience with anyone who wished to learn. To share the memories I have of you would take years. We didn't know each other for our whole lives but we lived and laughed a lifetime together. We just seemed to click from the second we met. Our coworkers and customers would walk buy us as we sat in the red rocking chairs or your office and just shake their heads wondering what we could possibly be laughing about this time. Your smile and sense of humor were only two of the qualities God blessed you with that attracted others to you. Your presence would light up a room. Your morals and values were the envy of any man. A family man in every sense of the phrase. A passion for life that was undeniable. You will be sorely missed by all that knew you but we are all glad you are out of pain forever. You will be with me forever. God Speed Joe. I will see you on the other side.

Good Evening Cathy and Family,

It is with the utmost sadness that we send our deepest condolences. IF not for the warmth you and Joe showed us, we never would have stayed at the Beach for now close to 10 years.

We think of you guys often: our lil jam sessions in your living room, dinners and your welcoming heart. I know how you miss him because we too have had our share of loss but we remain convinced that there is a better place for us where peace and joy reside for eternity...

We send our condolences accompanied by prayer to aid your healing and for Joe, "Rock on Brother", you are now in the Big Show with the only audience you'll even need! Travel Well.
