It has been 3 years, and it doesn't seem that long that we lost Joe. I hope that Mom, Dad, and Joe are together again. I miss them every day. They are in my thoughts every single day! I love them with all my heart. The only thought that keeps me going, is that someday we will all be together again. Joe died too young, he was the baby of our family. I know it hurt Mom so bad she just could not go on without him. It was just too much for her. Joe knew how to make everyone laugh, it made him so happy to make people laugh. I always thought he could have been a great stand-up comic. I know my girls Monica and Esther miss him as much as I do. He was a great brother and a wonderful Uncle to my daughters. MISS AND LOVE YOU JOE FOREVER!!!

The cowboys let him down again. But even the fact that they aren't playing in the Super Bowl, wouldn't faze him. My father-in-law, a real fan, wouldn't waver. I think of him daily. It's been a long, long year. God is our strength, and His promises hold us up. Lord, bring strength, comfort, and peace to our family and friends. In Jesus' name.

I love my favorite uncle. I close my eyes and I can remember running thru his apartment then him yelling at me to be quite because his baby girl was asleep. He would always go to grandmas to visit me when I would go visit. He liked burnt tortillas, Billy Joel, and coke with peanuts. He is mine and my sisters favorite uncle always. I can't wait to see you again.

I'm still struggling to come to grips with the thought, that he's no longer with us. I'm thankful, to be the son-in-law of such a great father. I'm constantly thinking, how can I live in such a way that will bring Glory to God, for what He has taught me, through the life of him. Looking forward to Jesus fulfilling the Scripture's promise: For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. (1 Corinthians 15:25, 26 ESV) Resting, and trusting in Jesus to complete his mission. Imran

I loved running into Joe. Wherever we would run into eachother we would always have a good laugh at our football teams. I love the Texans and he loved the Cowboys, always made out for a good time. He and my fathers used to always talk about how next season was "their" (Cowboys) season. I mentioned him in my sermon 'leaving a legacy- making your mark'. Joe made his mark on my life. He was always so kind and easy to be around. I thank God for allowing me to know him.
