can't say enough Joe, you were one of a kind and a great man. I will always here you say to me you will always be my little
girl. I will miss seeing you and the hugs you gave me even if i'm not in the family. You always made me feel like i was
always a part of you and the love you gave me and you accepted me no matter what. I will miss you and i will always
love you and i know you are in a better place where there is no more pain. But i know you are up there running after the angles.
Love you, and you will always be my father in law.
I would like to express my condolences to your family. I have only known Joe for about 5 years. In that time,
he was always courteous and friendly, humorous, and just a sweetheart. I know that he walked a rocky road at the end of his
journey, and maybe it would be helpful to know that he walks a much softer, gentler path. Filled with sunshine, warmth and
peace. Maybe there will be tickets there, and he will win at least once a day:-) In closing I will say..I will miss my friend
Sorry to hear of
your loss. Will remember the good times with him.
