    I never had the pleasure of knowing Joseph personally but I know he raised an amazing daughter, Robin. She brings joy and blessing wherever she goes and I know that I am one of many who are grateful to call her friend. Joseph gave us a wonderful gift and I rejoice that we have confidence that he is dancing in the presence of the Lord.

    Joe was a fantastic friend to me. We had many conversations over the years. I would bring him banana and zucchini bread and mend his clothes . I gave him that blue and green down filled coat to keep him warm. I surely will miss his smile and laughter. Could some please mail me his memory flyer.
