You were the kind of person that everyone admired and respected. Anyone who knew you wanted to gain your respect and love including me. I have so many good memories of you and that is what I will hold dear to my heart when I think of you. The favorite times when we would come over and visit for hours with you and sit on the deck that you built just talking about anything and everything while looking at all of the Brandy Wines tomatoes.
I still have safely packed away the little outfit that you brought home for me from Viet Nam when I was a baby, and the doll and shoes that all of my life as a kid I would sit on a shelf in my room. The short time that you lived with us was a time that I was so happy knowing you were close by.
I will always share my memories of you with those close to me. The pictures of you when you were a baby until the now. I will say to everyone… that was my Uncle Joe, you will never be forgotten. May you Rest in Peace.
