Going to miss seeing Joe taking his walls. He always asked about each family member by name. Don't know how he could remember all their names. Joe was such a caring person. My condolences to Joe, Gina, and Carla. My heart is very sad for you.

Joe and Family,. I'm sorry for your lost and that I'm unable to attend your Dad's visitation. I'll always remember Joe walking through the Nelson School yard. He stopped by my office whenever he needed my Notary stamp on his documents. I notarized the homestead exemption form that reduced his property taxes! Joe was always friendly, polite, cheerful, and supportive of Nelson School. Blessings to you and your family.
