Pancho, you definitely left us too soon. I'll always remember the great times we had at Walleys. I never saw you in a bad mood. Rest in peace, my friend!

So deeply sorry to learn of Joe's passing. He was my neighbor across the street and we would chat from time to time, especially about our families and our love for them. He was a kind man and I will miss seeing him sitting on the stoop with his buddy, R.J. Rest in peace dear Joe. We will always remember and miss you.
