I love you Joe and I will miss your smiling face,I remember taking care of you when you were a baby you were my real live baby doll! I would feed you and change you. One funny memory was when you cut my barbie dolls hair short, I guess you liked short hair at the time!! love you so much, it just does not seem real that you are gone. you did so much for your country Joe I am so proud of you, you saved many lives and kept us safe at home in the USA. You loved learning and spoke several languages, Arabic, Spanglish, Chinese,Uganda and Amba. You loved music and playing your trumpet. When taps are played at your service,I wont be holding back the tears. I know you loved Angelina so much! We will do our best to try and get her for visits and teach her about our family and the values you cherished, honesty,loyalty, the love of Jesus,and most of all a loving giving spirit. Rest in Peace Brother. See you in heaven some day.
