    I am so very sorry for your incredible loss Suzanne. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the boys. I saw Joe not so long ago when I was home for John’s sister Paula’s funeral. Joe heard I was coming back and waited to say hello. He was that kind of guy. We reminisced about him being the best man in our wedding all those years ago. I’m confident John and Joe have reunited in heaven. May he Rest In Peace and may you hold on to the memories until you see each other again. Much love and prayers, Suzanne.
