I went to Northgate with Joe. Although he was always a quiet kid, he was always so nice. May he be at peace. My thoughts and prayers are with all of Joe's family and friends.
With Deepest Sympathy,

I cannot begin to describe the amount of grief & sorrow following Joe's departure. He has been a long time friend & I can only say that he has been one of the truest friends I have ever had. While he was quiet at times. I cannot express how many good times we spent together. Whether ot be arguing over sports or just our small friendly pow wow's outdoors. Especially our love of Pearl Jam & numerous other musical varieties. We had reconnected very recently & were talking quite often. All I have to say is my friend you will be truly & sorely missed by not just myself but numerous others. Rest in peace Joe....until we meet again.
