Dear Peggy,

Joe was a very fine man and we will all miss him. He did much for the community and for programs that I have been involved in.

Peggy, I am so very sorry to learn of Joe's passing. He was truly a wonderful man and will be missed by all those who's lives he had touched. I had always looked forward to seeing the two of you when you would connect with Mom & Dad. I will always remember Joe for his positive attitude, sense of humor and jovial laugh. May all the fond memories you've shared together provide comfort to you at this very sad time, and know he will forever be your very special "Angel" watching over you! With Love Always.

What can you say about a man called Joe Angelosanto who asked for very little in his life but gave a lot? Was a gentleman and a gentle man?
Stepped up to the call of duty to his family, his country and his God?
Was loved and respected by all who knew him and called him friend? Who's heart was bigger than any material thing he possessed or accomplishment he reached?
I say "thank you God for creating Joe and allowing or paths to cross in this world and in our neighborhood." I say, "thank you Joe for being my friend!" I love you Joe, Danny Boy!

As a child, every time my mother Ann heard an airplane fly overhead, she yelled, "hurry up and run outside to wave to your cousin Joe!" And I always did just that. Waving to you now Joe...may you rest in peace.
With love and blessings.

The world has lost an angel of a person since he now resides in heaven with family and friends. Peggy and Joe Angel - like salt and pepper, a perfect blend of love, respect, kindness and magnanimous spirits. Peggy, may you be comforted by the memories you shared of good times spent together. Joe will always be the angel on your shoulder, watching over you. God bless.
