My poem for you Joe...
" In a blink of an eye
We now have to say goodbye
You wouldn't want us to cry
It will be difficult, can't lie
But have no fear Joe
Because you must know
We will keep you near
By sitting together and drinking beer
We will not be sad and remember the colourful personality you had
You were such a wonderful dude
Always managed to change a persons mood
Whether we were happy, sad or committed a sin
We would end up with a big grin!
Joe Joe where did you go!
From the best valedictorian to now a great historian. "
Joe was and still is One of a Kind, special, wonderful, person and soul. My sisters just met him once on our graduation day and they loved him already because they felt his free spirit. I will always cherish his laugh, smile and his 'Right on' saying. Joe you are truly, deeply missed! I never went a day without hearing your laugh or voice, I knew everything was right on!
Love you always Joe!
