I remember Joe's quiet reverence for the Mass when he was present. He always had a pleasant "thank you" after the celebration and a warm greeting. He will be missed by many in the parish. I will remember his in my Masses and prayers this week end. Fr. Blondell

I've known Joe for only too short a time but Jannie, you and Joe have become real friends. I will miss or Sunday morning discussions. I know Joe is at home in Heaven with God now free from all the pains he has had to live with. His soul will remain in my daily prayers
