  1. As I begin my mourning period, my time to cry, and reflect, and rage… I know how fortunate I was to have had 17 amazing years with the most wonderful man in the world. He was everything to me, and I loved him and still do. more that I can ever express in words. Everyone who knew my husband, my lover, my best friend, loved him and loved how he lived every moment of his life with vigor and fun. Let him be an example of living life to the fullest.

  2. Francine,
    Fran and I are deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Joe. He had such an infectious laugh and I will always remember his jokes. Our prayers are with you. Fran Marshall and Trish Dalia

  3. Francine

    Christine and I were shaking when we learned of Joe’s passing. I will always remember Joe as a passionate person who embraced all of life. I was always amazed at his devotion to you. He always referred to you as ‘Sweetie’. Then one day we were golfing and the phone rang and I asked him who was calling. He showed me the caller ID and of course it was “sweetie”. We are sorry for the loss of our friend. If there is anything we can do for you, please just ask us.

    With much love.
    Mike & Christine Paese

  6. Francine, I am so sorry to hear about Joe. Gone way too soon. I remember about him always having a sandwich ready for you after you got home from work and to be able to come and play MahJong. Our prayers will be with you that you will get that extra strength to get through the next days. Love, Janet Doles

  7. Francine I was so shocked to hear of Joe’s passing. He as such a fun person. I understand what you are going through so I’m here if you want to talk. My prayers are with you.

  8. Oh, Francine, what terrible, shocking, inconceivable news. You were so lucky to have him, even for a comparatively short time…he loved you so. It was evident in the way he spoke of you, the way he followed you with his eyes when you came into view and the obvious pride he had for you. Although I’ve used the Past Tense here…I believe that he is still feeling those things…and is expectantly, patiently, waiting until you’re together again. Please take some comfort in knowing your friends grieve with you.

No one got in between Joe & his Sweete & we are pretty sure wherever he is he is watching over you & always will. We are all richer for knowing him but as your friend first mostly we loved how he loved you. How he lifted you up when you needed to be lifted most. Before he left he made sure you were in a wonderful place surrounded by great people. He was a loving husband, father and friend and he will be dearly missed. We are so sorry and Love you so much.
