So many memories I could share. Going to miss seeing you sitting on the front steps or by the fire pit out back. Could not have had a better neighbor, for 50+ years.

My gosh, how time has flown. It seems like just a few years ago when you would follow Al, Tony and I everywhere bugging us big kids. I must have been all of 12 at the time. You will be missed cousin JoJo. Chung and I send our deepest condolences to Uncle Joe and your brothers and sister.
