"Headed home from a business trip and I couldn't get you out of my head. I realize my blessing and joy is the memories of every single day that I got to spend with you. Some of the most precious moments in my life have been with you, holding your hand, receiving your hugs and your big warm smile that would brighten my every day. I Love You!"
"Thoughts and prayers"

"Seems like yesterday, for you and others"
"Hello my love, sure miss you. Need your laughter, I can see your smile and vision you telling stories with your hands flying all over the place, you had such great expression. You would get so excited, you loved telling stories as much as I loved hearing them. How I wish I could hear one now. Miss our talks Joe. Love you"
"Miss your Holiday calls Brother....There is not a day that goes by that I do not think of you....You are in my Heart forever and always...I lovey you...."
"And yet another holiday not hearing from you. Miss you with every beat of my heart brother... Love you ..xo"
"Your smile always brings me comfort and peace but more so over the past few weeks Joe. I know you are with me, continue to guide me through. Love and miss you, smooches my love."
"Time goes so quickly. Seems like yesterday I said goodbye. Think of you so often and miss you. Can't help feeling sad you, cos, mom and dad are not here. I think the old one gets the more they miss family. Missing you brother. xo"

"Happy Valentine's Day Joe. You stole my heart, then you broke my heart....miss your smile, voice but most of all I miss you. You could always make me laugh even when I didn't feel I had anything to laugh about, you could take my hurts away. Now my hurt is over losing you and that can't be taken away. Love you still and miss you more every day. There is no one like you Joe, you were one of a kind :) smooches.."
"Yesterday was the 2 year anniversary of my fathers death. Not a day goes by that I don't think of him as my own words and actions are a strong reflection of his personality.
He was the master of the "pep talk" and I know many, including myself could have used one of those over the last couple of years.
Always the showman and competitor, I miss the way he interacted with his grand kids during any of our "holiday decorating contests" (pumpkin carving, Christmas cookies or Easter eggs). "I will crush you all!" would always garner a laugh and a renewed seriousness to the event.
I miss hearing "Hey Guissep!" which was the customary greeting I received on the phone with him. His many hours on the road traveling for work gave him the time to routinely call family and friends to keep in touch. I know those calls are missed by many!
My Dad worked hard his whole life and I must admit that I am bitter he was taken just as he was crossing the finish line and into retirement. I remind myself that tomorrow is promised to no one and am grateful for the time I had spent with him and that he was my father.
I miss you Dad."
"Joe's zest for life inspired so many. I am a better person for having him as my friend."
"Always a spot in my heart for you Joe. A voice of reason and during our time a good friend"
"Joe ,you are missed so much .Lewis and I talk of you often .We know what an amazing friend you became .We miss you.Lewis misses your spaghetti sauce.We have been blessed to know you."
"Pat said it all Joe. Miss everything about you, your smile, your love, your forgiving nature, your love of life itself. You could always make me laugh and see the positive in everyone. Miss our chats over coffee and cookies, our evenings snuggling on the couch, our morning breakfast to start our day. Love and miss you so much."
"Joe its been two years today since I heard your voice for the last time, five days later you would take your last breathe. I miss you brother. I miss your voice, your humor, the all of you. I am so sad your not here. Time does not really ease the pain it just put more time between our last conversation. I am so grateful to have had you in my life. I will never understand why god choose that time for you, I think he was waiting on you to find happiness, security and closure. All which you accomplished. You carried enough grief so you left with a full, glad heart. You will be thought of everyday and loved by me until my time on this earth is over. Rest. Love you xo"
"Merry Christmas Joe, difficult time for me but I have such great memories. Love you still, think of you daily. Nice to know that you have my back and are watching over me. My faith has grown because of you. Keep listening."
"Big brother, thoughts of you daily. Miss not hearing your voice again this Thanksgiving. I miss you awful but think of you with peace in my heart. Your at the right hand of God no doubt. Some days I weep, I hear your voice and laughter through tapes, and that brings a smile to my face. Loving you till the end of time... love you lotsa..xo"
"Hey Babes........Love you so much and miss you even more, always and forever."
"Hello my love, just had a 1st birthday for little Caroline. You would be proud, I went just "a little" overboard....... She is so sweet, reminds me of little JoLeigh and Emma, I haven't seem them in a long time but Caroline seems to have their happy, loving personality. So wish you could be here with me, I miss you still Joe. love you"
"Feeling a bit down, what I would give to see your smile, hear your voice, simply know you support me and will be there for me through all my family troubles. Not as tough as I use to be.... Miss you,"
"Miss you dad! One day closer to seeing you again...."
"Happy Birthday Joe, love and "miss that face". Big smooch."
"Happy Birthday to one of the greatest men I have ever know...That would be you Brother. Love and Kisses sent your way. Love You Much"
"A year and a half, where has time gone? Miss you so much. Have alot to share and could use some good solid advice. Really can't say it get easier only bearable. Feeling lost, missing mom and dad more now that you and Cosi are gone. Wish we could go HOME again. As tears roll down my face need to tell you.... a little angry God took the best. Love you so much and miss you even more than any words could express. Know without a doubt your doing well in that heavenly place. But still, missing you here. xo"
"You are heavy on my mind today Joe. I think of you daily, I talk to you daily but today is different.... Are you trying to tell me something? I find myself spending more and more time at work, miss seeing you every night, miss your beautiful smile, your laugh and even your yelling :( miss starting our day out together, wish you were here. love you"
"Happy Fathers day Joe. Miss you so much. Love you."
"Big smooch Joe! Love and miss you soooooo much."
"Hey Big Brother....Not a good day for me...Seems like every so often I get hit with another low....Dad, Jonathan going away, Mom, You, Coss, and now Pat leaving...I remember at one time we were all together...How time changes things....I can only think that We all be together again soon enough...I Love Each and every One of You More than you'll ever know....Always and Forever..."
"Joe, thoughts of you today. Miss you so much. Can not believe your really gone. Thought we would all grow old together. Always pictured retirement living closer to one another. living it up and acting silly. Boy, life is just a blink of an eye. I love you still and always. You were the best. Haven't laughed til I cried since you've been gone. Don't think I ever will. You had what it took to set me on fire. Love to you."
