My prayer for Lisa, Kurt, Marybeth, Eric and Joanne; is that you remember Joe as the brother he was to each one of you, hold tight to your memories and in the way Joe lived his life, not the way it ended!! I'm sure that's how Joe would've wanted it!
To those who suffer, God does not provide arguments which explain everything; rather, His response is that of an accompanying presence, a history of goodness which touches every story of suffering and opens up a ray of light. Joe was HIS ray of light to those who stood by him in his last days.
He will deliver my soul in peace” Ps 55:18
May eternal rest be granted unto Joe. Let perpetual light shine upon him. May Joe’s soul and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.
My dearest brother Joe, Thank you for being the best brother and the greatest uncle to my children! You are truly the kindest individual who made my life so very special! We only had to ask once and you were there for us. I enjoyed every minute we had together and it will never leave me. Thank you for tolerating my cooking and good thing John came to save us from it all the time. I know you are resting in peace with Mommy and Daddy! The Jets lost today but I will continue to watch Jeopardy/Wheel of Fortune/Judge Judy for us. I love you so much Joe and will miss you like crazy until I see you again. God Bless You!
It was a pleasure working with you Joe for so many years! All the stories, all the laughs in my office will always be remembered. You were the best guy ever! May you rest in peace, my deepest sympathies to your family.
