Uncle Joe was my favorite uncle and also my Godfather. He was a special person in my life and I have many fond memories of him and the Bachnick family.
May God's promise of eternal life bring you comfort in your sorrow.

Dear Joanne & Dion~ I was taken by surprise when I talked to Joey tonight, and he told me of the passing of your Dad. He was such a nice person, and I truly loved when he came to the market on Saturday's for spices. I enjoyed talking with him. He always made me smile. And after looking at your photos, I see he made alot of people smile. Love and Prayers to your family.
