I went to St. Pete’s with Joe and stayed a bit in touch through high school. He was a really a nice guy and we had a nice friendship through the years. So sorry to hear of his passing.

It is with deep sympathy to hear our dear relative passed away recently. It is with fondness of heart and mind that we remember the good times together discussing the Bible, the hope for the best future and especially about the God of the Bible, Jehovah. Joe was the happiest when he said that he was among God's people. He enjoyed being with people. His experience going to California on the Greyhound bus and meeting a worshipper of Jehovah touches our hearts to this day. Loving regards, Jim and Eunice Tralmer

I am writing once again. When I went by Joe's room, after he was taken to the hospital, I found this note outside his door by his nameplate. He must have treasured this note because he put it in a public spot. I now have the note on my wall in my room. It reads: "Joe, thank you so much for coming out on a cold night for me, my mom, and my dad. We all appreciate it." Signed: Judy, Dorothy, Pat, and Sue.I sincerely believe Joe would have helped anyone who needed him.Thank you, Sr. Kathleen
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I won't write that much now because this page was not working the other day. I knew Joe at Celebrate Senior Living of Niles. I wish I could have been of more assistance to Joe. God rest his soul. And may you feel the strength of God's love for you, and for Joe. You'll see him again.Sr. Kathleen

Just stunned to see the passing of Joe. Would see him at Fresh Farms on Touhy and would walk around with him to talk to him. Joe was always a good boy who we enjoyed talking to. We'll miss him. The da Rosa Bros., Gary & Gavin
