Condolence & Memory Journal

I happened to be visiting with a mutual friend in Brookfield two days ago and he told me of Joe's passing , I was stunned with disbelief. What a great guy, I admired Joe so much, he was a great mentor to me in our mutual pursuit of Indian artifacts and history. He was the greatest ! I always told others about him and the lifelong interest we shared. He was unique , truly dedicated. His memory will always be with me . My deepest sympathies to his family

To the Craig Family,

I'm so sorry for the loss of Joe. He was loved by all who knew him at the animal shelter. Joe had some wonderful tales to tell about all kinds of things. I will certainly miss chatting with him about all the dogs we both have met and cared for over the years. Joe was a very good friend and I will miss him dearly.

To the Craig Family:

As you well know, Joe was a major part of our lives. He was a father figure to Brian and I, a grandfather figure to our children, my son's namesake and Godfather, Mentor and friend. From auctions to friendships and breakfasts to annual apple pies and chocolates, random LEGO deliveries to Joey and little trinkets to Brittany, he will live in our hearts forever. Thank you Joe for all the many memories, advice, and peace of mind you always gave us. Our deepest condolences to you, Joanne, and your family during this time. I hope it brings you peace to know how much Joe meant to us and our family.

Love, Michelle and Brian Zuidema
