My uncle Joe will forever be a man that was always smiling, always had a joke and always was quick to quote scripture when searching for strength and direction. I always felt welcome in his presence and never once ever saw him angry or heard him utter a bad remark or comment. Blessing to my aunt Rita and cousins.

Joe I miss you: your faithfulness to the Church, your gregarious and engaging personality. The coffee breaks after morning Mass, temporary suspended due to Covid-19, will, when resumed, never be the same due to your commitment to keeping the coffee and tea going. Joe I thank you for making my faith life more alive.
