Will remember the times at stone hardor New Jersey. Short sheeting the beds. Telling us about the king wave and sending us kids to get ice cream at springers to get us out of the house. Will always remember you Uncle Joe

It was always fun and a good time whenever we got together. The camping trips, the time we just hung out. Mike's birthday dinners with Mrs. Greene's amazing Manicotti. Mr. Greene will always be remembered fondly in my heat.

Mrs. Greene, Steve, Mike, and Mary Jane you are in my thoughts and prayers. I loved the camping trips we took together to Canada and VA.

Joe was a great friend and a fun person to be around. We enjoyed taking our families camping, playing tennis, socializing, rooting for our kids at sports events, etc.. I admired him as a great husband, father, friend and lawyer. To Bernie and family, I express my deepest sympathies for their loss. Remember all the wonderful memories that you have of him.

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends. Please take comfort in the words found at 2nd Thessalonians 2:16, 17.
