May the loving arms of God gently be wrapped around your family as you grieve. Take comfort in the tremendous love all of you shared with him.

Mark and I first met Joe and Ann in Key West, Florida on vacation. We shared a commonality and love of the islands music, food, water and good times. Facebook allowed our friendships to flourish and we watch each other’s families grow. Ten years have come and gone and Joe is now with our Lord and our lives were enriched by knowing Joe. We extend our condolences and love to Ann and family.
