Dear Kathy and Family,
My condolences of the passing of your brother Joe. I wish I was able to visit you all at Joe's services. I remember Joe always making us laugh when I was over your house during the days when we both worked at Salem Hospital. My thoughts are with you all.

I didn't think I'd say goodbye to you this early, but I know you have found your peace. Holding your hand and talking to you as you left this world is something I will never forget. I don't think you realized just how loved you were by many. You were a good guy ! My girls always remember the sand box in your truck and Jace always says "Great Uncle Joe is the best". He always had fun playing with you while visiting. Both kicking a pail on the back porch laughing. Thank you for always protecting me when I was little. We will all miss your presence and love you always. Enjoy the family and friends up above.

Dear Uncle Joe,

Weve shared so many laughs over the years. I remember you letting my sisters and I play in the back of your truck full of sand when we were kids. Just one big sandbox. I'll always remember the day at the porthole of you walking hand in hand with Jace down to the ocean so he could see all the boats and the Boston skyline. I'll always cherish these happy memories of you. We miss you and love you. This is not goodbye, but see you again someday.

Joe was our neighbor and friend. Joe would stop by often to talk to us, while we worked in our garden. Joe and Kevin fixed our cellar walls last year and did a great job. We will miss Joe.
