Broken Chain We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide, and though we cannot see you, you are always by our side. Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

Joe will forever be my cousin, whom I love dearly. We have shared many laughs growing up with The Brucato Women..I so enjoyed seeing Joe, and he would always greet me with a big smile, his sparkling blue eyes,and the biggest warmest hug. Joe was just an easy loving guy to be around. Family dictated his life. It gave him simple joy.. Joe’s love is everywhere in his home. He was proud of the family he and Denise built. I will miss you Joe, but I will never forget those big warm hugs and how truly wonderful the times we spent together were. I love you Joe .

Throughout my life, Joe & family doors were always open to me when I wanted to visit and spend time with them. Even when I was sometimes considered annoying or stirring the pot, which some would argue was ALWAYS. I don't know why they kept inviting me back, but they always did and for that, I am eternally grateful. They welcomed my friends even when they broke the sub-pump, my wife Maura into their home many a time and this past year Charlotte with arms wide open. Joe is more than just an Uncle, he (& the rest of the family) is an extension of my immediate family.

There is so much good that Joe brought into my world for which I hope to channel in his memory.

With a very, very heavy heart I send my & my families deepest sympathy to my brother Joe’s dear family.
Family was at the core of who Joe was and his love for was obvious in everything he did.
He had so much to be proud of.
He will be with you all forever & always.
When I look up at every blue sky I will think of him and his very own blue eyes.
Marie & family
