Joe,
It's been very hard coming to the realization that you aren't here with us any longer.. It's heartbreaking, but I find comfort knowing you are walking with our Lord. You were in my life the last 30 years, and that I'm grateful for. Although we gave eachother a hard time during a period in my teens, I grew to love you very much. You loved my mom so much, and treated Nick and I like your own children. You always wanted the best for us, supported us, encouraged us, and loved us. I will miss seeing you get excited about things, like fixing stuff, playing with the doggies, laughing at funny videos we showed you, or just being silly with us. I will play band music to remember you, just wish I could hear you whistle along or hum with the music. I'm also going to miss your concerts with mom, both strumming your guitar, and singing. You two had alot of fun together, you were best friends. Charlie, and Rocky miss their Papa so much.. We will bring them to the beach for you, and play in the sand, meet us there. I promise you to always stick by mom's side, protect her, love her, and help her any way I can, forever. You were her protector, and you now are her angel. I know you are still with us in some way, and I hope that continues.. So you can comfort my mom as she learns to cope with this huge loss. Thank you for being in our lives as long as you had. Although I feel selfish because I wish we had more time with you, I'm grateful God gave us 30 years. Until we see eachother again.. Our family memories will be cherished forever. I love you Joe

I fell in love with Joe 30 years ago, I will love him for the rest of my life. We were many years apart but we had many things in common. Joe and I were always together because we both wanted it that way. He is the love of my life.
I Love and Adore you Joe,
Your Wife Elizabeth Silveira
