What a blessing to have had Tio Joe in our lives. He always had a smile to share and could bring life to any party! I still remember the privilege of interviewing him for a high school project I did about WWII. It was very difficult for him but he was very kind and gracious. As a teenager, I gained an understanding of the sacrifices he and all of our veterans have made for our freedom...such courage! May my Tio rest eternally in the arms of Jesus and our Blessed Mother and may God grant peace to all of his family and friends.
