  1. I’m sure Uncle Joe is happy in heaven right now gathering with family and some ole pals. One of the greatest men that lived! I spent many a childhood days in his home. I observed his dedicated and loving ways with Aunt Lucy and Joanne. I remember him picking aunt lucy up from the phone company each day after work. He watched over his girls always. I remember watching him and Joseph playing the piano together. I could listen to them forever! You will be dearly missed every day by so many lives that you touched. We were so very blessed to know you and learn from you every day. A true mentor and role model. I will Love you always and hold so many memories close. Love, Darlene aka(“Tallulah”)
