Memories Timeline


  1. To my Dad, I will always cherish our times together. You always had a smile on your face and never lost faith. May God Bless you always. Until we meet again your daughter Veronica

  2. As you share the stories and the memories of how Joseph lived his life and how very much he meant, may it comfort you to know that we were so very sorry to hear of your loss. You're in our thoughts now, and in the days to come.
    Cousin Frank N. DeSantis

  3. Remembering my big brother Joe. I'll miss watching classic horror flicks and The Honeymooners with you, your smile and sense of humor. Love you Joey. Love your sister, Darlene

  4. To my big brother Joe, I'll always remember going fishing, playing cards and the laughs we had about things that we found funny. Growing up I'll always remember the amazing work you did in Dad's auto body business. Dad was always confident that you can repair any car that came into his shop. Of course sitting around the table and having one of Mom's amazing meals with you. You always had a positive attitude. I'll miss you always and love you always.
