Sending our deepest condolences to you Marge and of course to your family. We never knew Joe really well but do know how much he was loved by Lukas and Clara and their families. I always remember Joe as having a very warm smile with just a hint of mischievousness. Our prayers are with you during this difficult time

I will never forget the kindness in Uncle Joe's eyes and the joy he brought in his visits to my Dad. He and Uncle Donny would make Dad laugh so hard and we would all forget the troubles for the day. His smile always lit up a room. Loved that smile! When we were kids, we stayed over and we're treated like one of their own. When I had water well questions, Uncle Joe went way out of his way to help me. Such a kind man! I send prayers of comfort and peace for Aunty Marj who was a beautiful wife and dedicated friend for a lifetime, all his children and their children, for my sweet Grandma who has to say goodbye again, and to his close knit siblings who love with all their hearts. Rest in Paradise Uncle Joe.

Take Care
