Aunti Carol, Uncle Joe was the sweetest, most guanine man I have ever known. He has taught all of us many lessons. I know that I carry a lot of them and use them daily. He is with Aunti Louise now and the two are very happy again. It is his turn to watch over you. You have your own bright star and angel. Love you.

To Joe's family,

I only met Joe once. While I was doing some genealogy research I contacted my mother's Aunt Louise (perry) Souza. They were both such wonderful people and so welcoming to me. My heartfelt sympathies to all of you. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
