God Speed big brother. Your journey is completed. Now you are with your beloved Joan (Muscle as you lovingly referred to her). You owe us another night of dominoes... We miss you, specially Joan's dessert after our meal at the restaurant. Wish we would have met years ago, like you, we talked about it many times. Rest in peace my good friend.

Nancy and I were sorry to learn of Joe's passing. We have many fond memories of our time together with Joe and Joan. Being from Pittsburgh, our contact lessened through the years but Joe, as was Joan, were never far from our thoughts. Joe had a magnetic personality, as we all know, but we will never forget the respect and attention he showed my parents - "Aunt Margaret' and 'Uncle Tony". In retrospect, this should not be surprising or special because Joe treated everyone that way. His lifelong, unconditional love and selfless devotion that he showed to Joan should be the standard by which all spouses are judged. Likewise, his love and devotion to Denise and Diane caused him to delay his reunion with Joan. Nancy and I express our sympathies to Denise, Diane and Paul and want them to know that we, too, share their loss and feel their grief.

Hi Daddy,

Today, it will be already two weeks, that you have been gone. I will never forget the day you left us. I wished we could of celebrated our birthdays together and have that steak you wanted me to get. Ron got me my ticket for my birthday on May 16th to come and see you the weekend of May 18th and sadly, god had other plans for you. I know if you could of stayed you would of, however, your no longer suffering in pain and that is the only reason I can get through this grief I have.

No one could ever or will ever know the bond I shared and memories I had with you and mom. The three of us going out with your friends and playing domino's and watching you slip cards under a napkin when playing cards with Luis and Esther.

Then we all heard the beautiful music, you played on your beloved white piano that you loved so much. Sounds, I will never forget hearing.

I am forever blessed to of had two wonderful and caring parents. Your love for mom...."muscles"....."doll" could never be matched in today's world and the world will never be the same for me without you both in it.

I miss mom and you so much. The emptiness can never be filled up again and I will never get over your passing that day, dad.

I love you with all my heart..............give mom my love too............I talk to her often and now I can talk to you both in my own way......some might not understand this, but for me it's my way of grieving and the grief will never end with the loss of you and mom.

Love Always,

Denise

Rest in peace Joe, you will be missed. I'm sure you and Joanie are together again watching over your girls. I can still see you playing piano for the residents at the Mariner or for us at your home. I will always fondly remember our times spent together.

We have so many wonderful memories over the past 27 years. There were the nights we got together to play cards and other times we listened to you, on your beautiful piano. I can still taste the delicious sausage that you used to prepare for us. Sunday afternoons at the Mariner, eating pizza with Sal, John and our families. So many birthdays, anniversaries and days in between. You and Joanie were special to our family. Without a thought, you became another loving set of grandparents to our children. We will miss you but will always treasure those special times we had together. Give muscles a hug from us. Love you both.
Love, Kristen, Tony, Heather, Cory and Aubrey

Diane, your father and mother in-law, Dacho and Ruth Dachoff, express our sincerest sympathy at a time when words cannot convey the loss of a dear friend, your dad. The association was long and wonderful. The memories of his love of music, particularly playing the electronic organ, fascinated me more so because of my professional career in music. In addition, Joe was a true gentleman who loved life and being with family and friends. Our son, Paul, truly loved his father-in-law. I'm so happy that I could claim him as a friend. Diane, with our love and best wishes. Dacho Dachoff
