My dearest eldest cousin. You were always there for me through the years. I could always count on you. Your personality was bigger than life and truly a staple in our family. You touched more hearts than you could possibly have imagined and brought joy and lots of fun. Although there will be a big void in my heart I find comfort knowing you are no longer in pain an with God and other family members in Heaven. My sister loved to sing Connie Francis songs so maybe you could perform duets together. I love you eternally. RIP

So sorry to read about your loss. Bob and I enjoyed the time that we spent with cousin Vicky and Joe. I was amazed that Joe would come up during the winter to ski the slopes in Maggie Valley. When we went out together he never met a stranger. We had a lot of laughs. May the closeness of your family help all of you through this difficult time.

I have fond memories of Joe when we were the owners of Hallmark shops. Also our children grew up and attended school together. Those were the good days. Joe rest in peace.
