Dear Uncle Joe you will be missed by all of us. My special prayers are for the family and my thoughts are with all of them. I know that you are at rest and will be with all our family that has gone before you. I remember all the good times we had as kids and the teasing you would do to all of us. We are trying to keep our family close by keeping in touch and having the reunions and you will always be remembered. Love your niece Lorraine
