My deepest condolences to the Damilini families for the loss of Joe. He was a kind and gentle man. A true, loyal, lifelong friend. My life is immeasurably better for him having been a part of it. I’ll miss seeing him even though it was generally only once a year at Christmas time. Our annual gathering at Heroes will have a void with his absence. But our memories of him will be permanent. RIP Joe. Rejoice in the presence of the LORD.
