Joe was a great kid and a kind person. There are too many memories to share, but I will always remember him. You are all in my prayers.

I will always remember summers in Massachusetts looking up to my cousin Joey. The Macon house was like a wonderland for me when I was growing up and Joe’s magnetic, confident and bright personality was part of what made me feel at home. I learned a lot from Joe, everything from how to appreciate truly talented musicians to snowball fights. You will be sorely missed my friend, rest well. Charlie, Liz and Anne, you are all in my thoughts. I’m sure you will weather this storm and emerge stronger on the other side.

His strength and courage through all his challenges could teach many a lesson. I always looked forward to seeing him: seeing what new movies he had, what new CDs he was listening to... what new challenges I could throw at him

As intensive care nurses, we see many thousands of patients over the course of our careers, but few as memorable as Joseph. From the moment I admitted him to our unit he touched my heart and his strong, warm, kind and kindred spirit shone through. He met his disease and the incredible challenges with which it brought with a smile always on his face. When I walk by that room I can still hear the Dropkick Murphys playing and see

My deepest sympathies to the family of Joe. As a classmate I can recall his curious spirit and uncanny sense of humor. I can only imagine the wonderful impact he has had on people since school.

Joe unequivocally changed my life for the better. He made me think about things differently, encouraged me to try new things and was always there for me when I needed someone to talk to.

We'll miss you, Joe. You were a real mensch if I ever met one, and you'll be missed dearly. My condolences go out to your family.
