Tom and I are so sad to hear about Joe. We will miss him in Plymouth and Florida. We are in Wisconsin now and not able to be at the Mass. Tom will really miss Joe´s phone calls and his jokes. He was always such a happy guy always smiling and never complaining about anything. Our condolences to all of the family.

Dear Pat & family,
We were so sorry to hear of Joe's passing. He was a very articulate & funny guy. I'm sure the residents in Heaven are enjoying a chuckle & an Irish tune, compliments of Joe. The daily gatherings around the pool in Mission Grove won't be the same without him. Please know you have our deepest sympathy.

There are very few people in life who make you smile (and even laugh) whenever you think of them. Joe was one of those people. He will be missed and remembered. Wishing strength to the family during this sad time.
