    Joe, after 50 years of marriage I will always love you as if it were yesterday. You’ll always be my hero you took such good care of me after my operation. You were right there with me until they took me in, I was so nervous, but you said “don’t worry you’ll be fine God is with you”. In work he was known as the complainer, which he was!! His lifelong friends would say “Joe’s Joe but they loved him any way! His daughters were his pride and joy, Julie Anne and Suzanne. I don’t know what we would have done without Julie when we were sick, she had two of us to take care of. We adopted Suzanne, when she was 10 mos old, after a cat scan, we were told that she was missing part of her brain and did we want another baby, Joe said no that he would bring her up as his own, he was such a good husband and father we’ll miss you so much. He loved his nieces Myra, Lisa, Paula and Patty, he was their Uncle Joe! As for his grandchildren Alan Joseph and Elizabeth Alayne they will miss their papa so much, as will we all!
    Only one more thing our son-in-law Alan would sit with him all day in the hospital so he wouldn’ t be alone when Julie and I needed a break. We were so blessed to have him. You’ll always be with us Joe!!!!
