Uncle Joe was so special to all of our family. He had so many funny stories that made us laugh and enjoy just being around him. Losing a husband, parent and grandparent is so painful. I'm thankful that he was my uncle and that he's given you all so many wonderful memories.

I am so very sorry for your loss. Our Creator's purpose was for us to live forever, so having to cope with the death of a loved one feels very unnatural. Soon, we will be able to experience the truthfulness of Gods promise "And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing" (1 Corinthians 15:26). What better hope than to know that God will very soon bring an end to death and all the pain we face (Revelation 21:4). My sincere condolences to all who knew and loved Mr. Cavaliere.
