As I was reading the condolences, a memory bounced in my head about Joe, and still smile at the incident. I remember how funny, humerous, joking, While still in Portage, Joe and the girls climbed out of the car, and it was just beginning to shower large raindrops. Joe got out of the car and walked zigzagged. I asked what was he doing. He said "Well, I'm so skinny I can walk between the raindrops and not get wet." I had to laugh, and still have a smile on my face remembering him as a teenage boy. Memories of Joe's spirit still lives.

As with all first impressions, earliest memories register most lastingly. Cousin Joze struck young me as not only a life force in himself, but a processor of life for me and others. His method – which was also his revel - was story-telling about everyday occurences, passing events, common human foibles and especially happenstances that aggravate and exasperate. His “large” way of depicting the instances, complete with hand waving and sound effects (an animation so unlike the dynamic of communication in my own household) ever granted me the space to step through my own life experiences with recognition, acceptance and, especially, humor having unmatchable coping value.
Of all our houseguests, he was the one I felt most sad to see depart when the time came.

In a sense, that is still very much true.

Blessed repose, and Eternal Memory.

Dear A Martha, Tom, Tim, Greg and Nick - Was so sorry to hear about U Joe passing. I know he was a great friend to my dad and we all held him in very high regard and will indeed remember you all in our prayers during this sad but very special time. Love, Tom (Frank's son)

Dear family and friends,

It has taken my whole lifetime to even start to grasp the depth of my dad's character. He is probably the longest-running character study I will ever make. I never tire at talking about all his complexities of character, because he had so much understanding about how so many things worked--on the physical, mental and spiritual level. He gave us enough good instruction, wisdom, and old stories to last through the rest of our lives. He knew and influenced many people, but I wish that more could have come to know him better. He was really an inimitable guy, and we are going to spend a lot of time trying to become as saavy as he was in so many areas. If you knew him well, especially fellow family members, I'm sure that you can think of some of his amazing adventures and humorous quips and hyperboles that made life unbelievably interesting at our home and while you were in his presence. We won't see many more like him again. Thank-you, kind Heavenly Father, for making your servant, Joseph, just the way that you did. I'm downtrodden at his loss, but uplifted at the same time with joy for having been raised in his household. HalleluYah!

Dear cousins, my thoughts and prayers are with you today, even though I was unable to be with you guys today. This is such a hard time to lose someone, it is only a special angel called home this time of year.

May the Almighty Creator of all place Joseph in a place where there is no more pain, sorrow or mourning, but life eternal full of love, peace, happiness and praises joining the Celestial Choir with the rest of the Loya voices. Eternal Memory.

Dad, So much of what I know about being a father I learned from you. While just about everything else wore out, the faith you expressed through your incredible tenor voice never weakened - the inspiration behind my ordination. Blessed repose and eternal memory.
