Rest in peace my friend. You were a great guy to have known. You always were kind and caring to all of us in the neighborhood. You kept us smiling and laughing. I am glad that we got a chance to reconnect and talk. I am praying for your family as they make this transition of loosing their son, brother, uncle, dad and granddad. May You watch over them and guide them in life.


My deepest condolences to Cam and Joe Sr. As well as Jennifer. Joe will be missed by many including me.
