Dear Lois, Sue, Chris, and Jenny,
Every once in a while someone comes into our lives who is so special that you know that the world will not be the same when they’re gone. Joe was one of those people. He will surely be missed!

We were so sorry to read of Joe’s passing, and sorry that we missed his funeral and the opportunity to see all of you. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

My heartfelt sympathy and condolences to Joe’s family. He was a great golfing friend at Miami View. One always knew it would be an enjoyable round if he were paired in the same group with Joe. May he rest in peace.

I will miss Joe so much. I really liked Joe as a Boss and a friend. I will always remember when I didn’t get a house I wanted and Joe said that another would come that is better and he was right. I loved talking golf and Florida with him. I will miss him soooooo much.
My prayers go to all of you.
