Not sure what to say?

Rita and Dembeck family my thoughts and prayers are with you all today. Still think about Joey all the time. I have great memories of him and they always make me smile.

Wow, three years on now and I seem to get subtle reminders from you at opportune times about something currently happening in the news or with people's comments that trigger a thought of you that makes me laugh or smile. Just recently I was telling my son that at one time we had four daily newspapers in Phila and how you did the crossword in all four every day they published! Almost thirty-five years since I left the 14th and yet I can recall many of our conversations like they were last...

Still think about you Joe. Keep dancing with the angels until we all meet again! Love & Miss you!

Dear Dembeck family, I am so blessed to have had Joe as a cousin. I will treasure the memories I have of him for all my life. My prayers go out to you all for peace in your hearts knowing that he is no longer suffering.

God Speed Joe!
Love you & see you again one day.

Dear Rita, Jackie and Family,

I was so saddened to hear about Uncle Joey. He was always the life of the party, And could always tell if I was feeling down. He would talk and crack jokes until I was smiling. That is how I remember him full of jokes and smiles. Love, prayers and deepest sympathies to you and your family. Love, Dee and Maria

In the early 70's I worked with Joe in one squad in the 14th District. It was the early days of our police careers, and looking back now it's easy to wonder where the time went.

I don't know, but I do know I am proud to have worked with Joe and a bunch of other good cops in that squad for the time I was there. Joe was recognized by his squad mates, very early on, as being a really good cop. As it turns out he was one of the best I ever knew in my nearly 30 years in...

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
