To Pat and Family we are so sorry to hear of Joes passing. We wish you well and may be comforted by many memories, of which I can recall our days at Pottsgrove High, times in shop class, playing football and yes our senior prom. As the late Bob Hope has said " Thanks for the Memories." Rest in peace my friend.
