Wishing you peace and healing of the loss of such a good man. My early memories of Joe was the big baseball games at Aunt Lina on a Sunday afternoon with Joe, Buddy, Butch and Donnie. They wouldn´t let me play but they they sent me out to get the foul balls. Lots of fun. What a wonderful man, husband ,father and grandfather he turned out to be. Les and I are so sorry that we can´t be there in person but we certainly will be there in spirit. Love to all. Doris and Les
