I’m so sad to hear about Joe! We went to Holy Cross together, & liked him very much. Even after graduation it was fun catching up when I was planning reunions. He was always so kind! I pray that his wonderful memories will comfort you!

I can’t express how devastated our whole family is. We loved Joey as a family member. He grew up with my son Jimmy. His Mom and I used to stroll Cathy and Debbie to Ritte’s corner almost every day. Joey and Jimmy were like brothers. Debbie and Tammy felt the same. We saw him at Kroger’s and he was going to try to get Cathy and come for a visit. We can’t tell you how sad we are. We loved him dearly.
