I will always love and miss you joe! and will cherish our time together! wish i had a part of you thou! love always and forever!
You will be forever remembered. Though I only knew you briefly you had made an impression upon me. The past few weeks, not being able to see you or just being able to hang out and talk about nothing in particular have been difficult. I still look for you even though I know you are no long with us. I still scan the room for you even though I know you’ve gone. May the rest you now have bring you peace and contentment and may your spirit be with us for all the years we now have without

Joe was gentle giant and gentle man. He will be missed. I have been extremely saddened with his loss and will miss seeing his bright smile and feeling his bear hugs.
I thank him for the joy he brought into my life and to many ,He will be missed but not forgotten.
“Let no one weep for me, or celebrate my funeral with mourning; for I still live, as I pass to and fro through the mouths of men.”
My thoughts, prayers, and condolences to Joe’s family and Jennifer. He will be missed.
Please accept my sincere sympathy on the recent loss of your dear loved one. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. May the God of comfort be with you in this time of sorrow. May these words bring you hope, “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning, nor outcry, nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:4) This promise will be fulfilled one day, until then, may all your memories sustain you in the days to come.
Joe, always one with a warm hand shake and a quick smile. Always there to help out with his words or his muscle. Always a good cheer and quick wit. Always will be remembered and will live on in each of us. Rest well my brother…
When I think of you I recall our conversations, you always gave something to think about! I will cherish those memories. RIP friend.
You were a very good friend, I always enjoyed talking to you. You were someone that made me think and taught me a lot about the world. You will be missed by many people.
Joe was generous of spirit and easy to like. It’s such a shame that he left us so early in life. He will be missed by all who knew him.
So many words describe Joe, but none seem to come to mind right now. Joe an amazing friend, always there with a kind word or a hug whenever I would see him. I always enjoyed bumping into him at Wal-Mart where I work. I still can’t believe he’s gone, but he will always live in my heart. I am so sorry to his family for his loss. He was the best of the best. ~hugs~
You were more then just my brother but my best friend and hero. You over came so much hardship in your life and had the courage and strength to push through. Our interests in music, movies, and video games brought us closer together and made for some great memories that I will remember forever. I feel like the character of your favorite books. Here is a quote from your favorite book character.
“I have had few friends in my life, and if I live a thousand years, I suspect that this will remain true. There is little to lament in this fact, though, for those who have called me friend have been persons of great character and have enriched my existence, given it worth.”

To My Brother Joe, Please Know that you shall be Missed, I once heard it said. I believe in the brotherhood of all men, but I don’t believe in wasting brotherhood on anyone who doesn’t want to practice it with me. Brotherhood is a two-way street
