Dear Hope, Saundra, Patricia and Loretta:
Our hearts go out to all of you on the loss of your beloved Joe. Gianfranco and I will always remember him as a wonderful, funny and compassionate man whose sweet smile and gentle disposition endeared him to all. What a pleasure it was to have counted him as a friend for 25 long years, along with all of you who have been such an integral part of our lives. We have shared so many memories, so many good times, and so many sad times. Thank you all for having welcomed us into your warm and kind-hearted family. It was a privilege to have been among Joe's friends.
