Still struggling with the fact that Uncle Joe is goneéa.it just doesn't seem like it can be real. I'm really going to miss him! I have so many memories of him, from the time I was a small girl up until a little over a month ago when Krissie and I stopped to visit him and brought him Chinese food for dinner. One of my fondest memories is when I was a teenager and would go with him and Aunt Linda to Arizona to hang out with Cory (before Chantal even came along), while they were doing their Amway thing. The first trip Uncle Joe stopped along the highway and asked me if I wanted to drive. I had never driven anything, especially a Caddy down the highway, and I thought it was the coolest thing ever! I was scared, but he was patient, and let me drive quite a while. He and my Dad were alike, and yet very different. One thing they shared was their beautiful blue eyes, and each time I looked in Uncle Joe's eyes I could see a little of my Dad. When I think of Uncle Joe, I can still hear him giggle. I hope I never lose that. You will forever be in my heart, Uncle Joe. I love you and will miss you dearly.

Joe Mama will be greatly missed! I always had a wonderful time whenever Joe was around. I will always remember spending time up at his cabin all the way back to High School. The first time I went up to his cabin I remember waking up in the morning and going outside to see two skinned deer hanging from the tree and we all took off a little slice to eat. It's funny how some of the small memories will stay with you for life. I always thought of Joe as my second father. Joe will always be remembered and missed. Love you Joe!

"Those we love remain with us, for love itself lives on. Cherished memories never fade because a loved one is gone. Those we love can never be more than a thought apart. For as long as there is a memory, they live on in our hearts." Author Unknown. Wishing you as much peace as possible in this difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you!
