Lil Joe, I just want to let you know your dad loved you very much.
Karen, Joe admired you as his little sister with a big heart and always willing to help.
It’s hard to believe that our loved one, Joe, is gone. He brought us joy, made us laugh, and showed us love.
Even though he is gone, his spirit will always live on. It’s okay to reminisce, cry and laugh.
Blessings, Deborah
