May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. Before they had moved to St.Paul's l enjoyed helping Joe with the grocery shopping at Martins and helped around their house whatever I could to to make Joe and Mary Anns life easier. Joe was really a good guy and I enjoyed our conversations.
