Joe always had a smile and kind words every time we would see each other. No matter the amount of time that had passed. He will be missed. Our prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. We are grateful for the times we shared and blessed that we were able to have known such a great man.

Dear Marilyn, My deepest condolences on the passing of Joe. It was always a pleasure to talk with him, we talked about golf all the time. Although we never got a chance to golf together, we always talked about those great shots we either made or just missed. Probably missed more then we made. As we pass through this earth we are enriched by the people we meet, moments and memories that last forever. Both you and Joe had that wonderful opportunity to be together, for all these years; being there for one another sharing your lives. I hope his love and memory will be forever etched into your heart and bring you strength, comfort and joy. Although he has left us physically he will never be forgotten. God Bless Joe and You. Know that our prayers are with you. Harold
