Our condolences to the family. Joe was loved by everyone. He was a good man and a good Christian. When we went to the restaurant he would always say Grace before he ate. Little does he know that left such an impression on me. He was One in a Million! He was my cousin. We will miss you Joe but I know you are in a better place now and I know you are happy in your new home. Love you.

Aunt Angie, Nancy, Joey, Linda,

I am so sorry to learn of Uncle Joe's passing and am sad I cannot be there with you at this difficult time. I will always remember him with fondness. A standup guy, I remember him for being an exceptional man for his family, and exceptional brother to my mom. I remember talking golf with him, and the visits to my parents home. I remember visits to your house, cooking hamburgers outside, and playing with Joe and his buddies in the street on Rosedale. I wish I could be there for you. I will keep you in my prayers and savor my memories of my "Uncle Joe". May God bless you all.

Rick
