To young Joe, I'm sorry to hear of your loss of your father. You may not remember me but we went to school together in St. John and I have memories of playing at your farm house and watching your dad work on the farm. I moved from St. John in 1970 so it's been a long time, but the memory of your father is still there. Again sorry for your loss.

Mary-I just learned today June 22, 2006that your father passed away earlier this week. I was so sorry to hear that. He and your mother are two of the kindest people I have ever met. Please extend my condolences to your mother and the rest of your family. I wish I had known of this earlier as the wake was just down the street from my home. I hope you are doing alright. This will take time to recover from but I hope you can take comfort in the fact that so many people thought so highly of your father.

To Florence and family; our sincere sympathy and thoughts are with you at this time. I can think back to when Joe and Lorraine my 1st cousins and I were little kids; about 11 and 13 years old - we would play together a lot. One day I was over at their farm house and we were playing baseball. I was at bat and Joe threw me a pitch, a hard pitch, which hit me in the stomach; almost knocked the breath out of me. Joe could only laugh hysterically - while Lorraine looked on in the outfield. Even though that took place when we were kids, I still had two of my favorite cousins stand up in my wedding in 1953; Joe as the Best Man and Lorraine as my Maid of Honor. Treasured memories of our good times together will always last forever. With Love and Sympathy, Ella Mary Stephen Ball and Family.

We wish to send our heartfelt sympathy to Joe's family. He was our treasured milkman for many years. He always had a smile to give, and he treated everyone...children and adults alike...with respect and kindness. It was important to Joe to be helpful in any way possible, and he never failed to give us wonderful service. We always looked forward to visiting with the man with the pipe, even though those visits were all-too-brief. Our family remembers fondly how he helped to make our celebrations more festive by bringing us our Easter butter lambs, and the delicious peppermint ice cream and egg nog during the Christmas holidays. He was a gem! We are keeping Joe and his family in our thoughts and prayers. With sincere sympathy, Mike & Lee Klausman
