The best birthdays are in heaven, because you see everyone we haven't for a lot of years and you are all celebrating together. Have a nice 38th birthday Joe! Jackie

Hi Joe,
I guess you and Grandma will spend time together today. Missing both of you so much. You would have loved spending time with your nephew. He is getting so big. You should be here to celebrate your birthday but since your not have a happy 38th Joe. Love you mom

Joe I can't believe another year has come and gone. You have a nephew now, Gavin. He is so cute. He will never get to know his Uncle which is a shame. Alyssa is growing up so fast and getting so pretty. You would be so proud of her. She is a very smart girl. Love and miss you very much. Mom

Four years today since you left us, you are thought of every day and will always be in our hearts, always.
Posted by Jackie Shaw on November 13, 2013
Dear Joe: Thoughts are of you and your family you left behind 4 yrs. ago. Time never heals the hearts that were broken but memories you left behind, keeps them going. You were a great father, son, brother, friend, to all the lives you touched in your time on this earth. Watch over all of those you love and remember, one by one you will all be together again. Jackie

Thinking about you a lot today Joe. You should be here to celebrate your birthday. Still just can't believe your not. We will have Alyssa this weekend. Maybe we can take her to the cemetary to see you. She is growing up so fast. Love you and miss you Mom

Another year gone by Joe. How time flies. Can't believe I haven't been able to have a hug from you in 3 years. Miss those hugs. Zach got married Sat. so you missed one more family event. Just not the same without you. Alyssa is going to turn 10 soon. She sure needs her Daddy. Look out for the kids Joe. I guess you and grandma are spending time together. Love both of you. mom

Joe: Even "old" friends can remember how the times can affect our lives. Both your parents get through each day, but you will always be in their hearts and minds every single minute. Lead them through their daily lives until you meet them at that Gate. You and your brother was the most important thing and losing you, well, part of them did go with you. May Peace be with you.
Posted by Bill Wilfong on November 12, 2012
Well Joe three years have gone by so fast I think of you often and I know that you and MOM are looking over us every day. I miss you guys and please keep a watchful eye over all of our loved ones..love you guys.

Hi Joe, Well another Fathers Day has come and gone without you. Don't know if Nicci took the kids to see you or not. Sure do miss you and think about you all the time. Guess you and Grandma are together now. Miss you both so much. Had Steve and Grandpap to dinner yesterday. Wish you could have been there too. Love you mom

Hard to believe Joe that it will be 2 years this Sunday since you left us. We miss you so much. Miss your big hugs and hearing your voice. Thanksgiving is almost here and I know you loved eating the turkey. We will be out to the cemetary this Sunday. Maybe grandma will bring the kids out as she will have them this weekend. Love and miss you mom
Posted by William Costanza Jr on July 8, 2011
Hi Joe, so much has changed since you left us, I know you wouldn't like a lot of it, we don't either but we keep going, that's all we can do. Someday we will see each other again, we think of you every day.
Posted by William Costanza Jr on March 15, 2011
Hi Joe, I miss you so much it is unreal, there isn't a day that goes by that that I don't think of you, some day I will see you again.
Posted by Phyllis Costanza on February 2, 2011
Joe today is Tony's 13th birthday and your not here to celebrate it with him. The kids really need you. I still can't believe your gone. Another of your birthdays came and went. You would have been 35. Sorry we didn't make it to the cemetary. Weather hasn't been that great. Will get up as soon as we get rid of the ice. Love you mom
Posted by Phyllis Costanza on November 13, 2010
Joe I can't believe that a yr has gone by already. It's been a long yr.without you. We all miss you so much. I dread the holidays coming up and your not going to be a part of them except in our memories. It's just so unfair that your not here to see your children growing up. We will be out to the cemetary this afternoon for a visit.Can't believe that is the only way to be with you mom I love you
Posted by William Costanza Jr on November 12, 2010
HI Joe, it's a year since you left us, I know it was for a better place, God only knows how much I miss you.
Mom and I don't say much about what happened, but we both miss you so very very much, I would give anything to have you back with us.
Someday son when I leave this earth, I will find you, this I promise you.

love always and forever
Mom and Dad

Tomorrow will be a hard day for your family Joe, especially your Mother. She felt your heart beating before anyone else. You are her guardian angel now and until she and your Dad meet you again, watch over your loved ones here on earth.
Posted by Donna Weir on November 10, 2010
I can't believe that in a couple of days it has been a year.I know that god is taking good care of you.You'll always be loved and missed by all that had the pleasure of knowing you.

Ten months since you left us and went to a better place, it's been hard getting through these months, but we manage.
You will always be with me and in my heart as long as I still walk this earth, when my time comes then I will come find you.

Dad

Way too soon

Shared by William Costanza Jr on December 7, 2009

Joe Joe, that's what your mother and I called you. You had another  fifty years to go, what went wrong? There are a lot of questions and too few answers.

I remember teaching you how to drive, I think you found every pot hole there was to hit. The time you were little and stuck your finger into the third seat latch lift hole, and couldn't get it out.

Meeting you at Harrisburg Airport when you flew in from South Korea. You liked to fix things and you were very good at woodworking and computers, you could fix most anything.

We have a million memories of you and even though you are gone, they will always be with us as will you.

Mom & Dad

 

One of the best sons in the world

Shared by William Costanza Jr on December 2, 2009

Joe Joe we knew you from the moment of your birth untill the day you passed on to a better world. We remember everything about you, things you were not supposed to do but did anyway, you and your brother playing and going places with us and the one time at Ocean City when you were small and on the beach and turned around to see a wave coming in fast, your little legs ran like the wind to keep from getting swamped. In the pool at the Dunes with a life jacket on and so very very  young, you had no fear of anything

It's little things like that that we will always remember.

I would gladly have traded places with you.

Way too soon son way too soon, you had so much more to do in life.
