In memory of Joey, a wonderfully giving, kind soul who helped so many people. My fondest memory is gathering at Sue and D's house every Christmas for a wild and energetic game of Nertz. Joey's zest for life and compassion for friends and family are things that his family will treasure. I feel very fortunate to have known and loved Joey. Doris & Jack

This was a shock to see in the paper, I haven't seen Joe since the mid 1990's when I knew him well. Remember going to out to D'Andre and Sue's house with him...remember how generous and kind Joe was. Your family has my deepest sympathies. May he now be at rest in peace and in eternal joy.
