Happy belated birthday my darling. In this realm you are no more but the light that was your core continues to burn. Your generosity regarding your knowledge was unmatched by anyone that I have ever met. Thank you for sharing yourself and your knowledge. I hope that you and Papa Joe celebrated your birthdays together. You were and are still loved. Remember Laguna Beach and the Zinc Café, I do!
Death leaves a heartache that no one can heal and love leaves memories that no one can steal.
We will miss you Joey.
Jackie Rohfeld, Christine's sister.
My sincere condolences to Gianna, Bill and his sons. Joey was like a brother to me. We shared music, art, many bookstore hours and good coffee conversation. He shared his knowledge of beautiful music, philosophy, his love of cats with me. Joseph you were extraordinary and special. I will miss the music and conversation, and your serious nature and smile. God Bless you and until we meet again. Let the good times roll. Shahna
There will always be a special place in my heart for Joseph (that was the name he went by when he lived with me in Laguna Beach). Love you.
During Joseph's last week I spoke with him several times a day and I knew the cancer and heart condition had taken over his body but not his mind. Gianna, Bill and family, Joseph is at peace, the worry is over.
Bill I am so sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers
So Sorry for your loss. He was a great guy and good friend.
Joey, I enjoyed talking about the books you prefer (Lovejoy especially) and listening to songs in Portuguese. Gianna and I will certainly miss you, Alita
Genny - I really liked Joey, you know. We had interests in common -I'm sorry I didn't know him for more time.
Goodbye Joey, I was so happy to share Lovejoy and Vila Lobos with you, I wish we'd met earlier...Alita
My condolences go out to Gianna and the family. Joe was my friend and also my neighbor. It was a blessing being able to talk and spend time with him on the phone as he went through his illness while I was back in chicago.
I will always cherish our conversations my friend and keep you close to my heart and in my prayers. I hope the plants we planted and nurtured together at the condo continue to flourish for a life time.
Also, thanks for sharing your excellent taste in Brazilian music.
May God bless you, Gianna and your family always.
Joe was a long time friend and we are so glad we got to visit him and talk about the old times! His favorite phrase to us was "let the good times roll!" So Joe, that's what we're gonna do! Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to Gianna, his brother Billy and family and all his friends! Always, Steve and Janell
