Abba Joe . . .you will be so missed. Such wonderful memories of my youth, the ST. Mark's CYO, and all of the great times we had and laughs we shared. You made such an impact upon my young life. You are one in a million. God bless!

Thank you for the friendship, guidance, and more laughs than I can possibly remember. Joe, you were an alchemist - people's lives would cross paths with yours and were forever changed for the better.

Joey and I were altar boys at St. Stans, and at one time we were, among other things, in "business" together making wooden and plaster of paris models and selling them for 25 cents each. I remarked to him at one time about all the money we were making, and he looked me in the eye and said "Billy, I make these for the beauty of them, not just for making money". Some things are more important than just money. Thanks for your friendship, Joey, I know you'll rest in peace.

I knew Joe through various parish activities that we worked on together and I was always impressed by his thoughtful and prayerful presence. May he rest eternally in peace.
