Joe was a cusin and we shared many hours riding the same school Bus and visiting each others homes in early years fond memories of sitting around the kitchen table eating popcorn and playing cards or games laughing about school and I remember his mom always saying Mind your manners with those young Ladies As Long as we have memories to share they will always remain in our presense and in our Hearts Thoughts and prayers for his Family
