    Joe, This past week has taken on a massive amount of grief for all of your family & friends. I’ve read so many FB posts & the light you brought into all of our lives, that light has gone dim, as we try to accept this deep grief of losing you. We will never understand why you were taken from us. What we do know is our Hearts are shattered & we’ll hang on to every single memory of you. Fly high with the angel’s who have gone before you. RIP Joey💙 I’ll see you when I get there.💜

    My dearest cousin, although we did not talk a lot in our older years, I still always felt we were very close. My body will not be at your service but my mind and soul will be there with you and our family. I’m so glad you were a part of my life for the 49 years you were here. We have a lot of family who will be greeting you at the Pearly Gates. Hugs and kisses to all of them please. You will be forever missed and forever in my heart. I love you. Watch over your family from above.

    Joe, we have known you since you were first born.
    Your Mom my dearest friend. Memories we keep close to our hearts and they are the ties that keep us bonded in times of distance. Never forgotten but sometimes out of touch.
    Time and distance can’t break a bond that is always in our hearts and thoughts! Your passing has been such a shock to so many that new and loved you. Our saving grace is knowing we will all be together again someday. Rest in the arms of Jesus and know we will never forget you. I’m so grateful I got to see you in the of 2020. Enjoyed your visit so much! In the mean time watch over your Mom, Dad and family. Ask the Lord to pour out many blessing over your family. With Love and broken hearts! Aunt Dottie, Linda and Lisa

    Joe you were like a second brother to me since childhood. You always had my brothers back and I know you will watch over us in heaven. We are very sad you are gone and one day we will be reunited. Be well brother.
