We will remember Joe as a sensitive, funny and quiet soul. I remember him sitting on our sofa, with his guitar, filling our house with beautiful music. We will miss him. So sorry.

"Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth of sun-split clouds -
and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of -
wheeled and soared and swung high in the sunlit silence"

Sadly missed and forever loved , my dear nephew. Soar free. Aunti V

Jess and I send our deepest condolences. Auntie Shirley, we know this is a very hard thing to bear, but we will all miss Joe. He truly was a good guy. I personally have some really great memories to hold onto with Joe, and I think it's important that we just hold onto those great memories and cherrish them. If you're starting to feel sad just think about the good times. Joe will be up there looking down on you and I'm sure he'll let you know he hears you and is thinking about you too. We're here for you. Let us know if there's anything that you need and we're just a phone call and/or plane ride away. Love, Dan and Jess

I sit here thinking back of childhood memories with Joey. Our Grandparents alway warned us that if we said something bad they would wash our mouths out with a bar of soap. I laugh now, thinking back of the day that we decided to see how bad soap really tasted and if it was worth getting into trouble. I remember standing at the sink, we held the bar of soap and each took a good lick. Within seconds our heads were under the faucet trying to get that soap off of our tongues. We learned a good lesson that day...NEVER GET CAUGHT!

I remember sitting at the kitchen table one evening eating spaghetti and Joey said "wanna see something cool"...before I could answer he had spaghetti noodles coming out of his nose! After 35 years, I can still visualize him sitting at the table, cross-eyed looking at those noodles coming out inch by inch. If I remember correctly, that was one of perks of having your adenoids removed.

Joey - Life is one big circle, I only hope that as we continue our journey from life into death that our biggest worries are bars of soap, laughing so hard that spaghetti may come out of our noses and that the cookie drawer is full.

RIP, my little one
