"Lisa and Brad, I am glad Joe can now rest in peace. He fought tough for too long. Very thankful Tom was with him until he passed away. Our lives are changed forever. The gruff and tough Angie with that soft heart. we're so blessed to have him as part of our family. We love you guys and you will part of our family forever xox"
"So sorry that we are in Florida and will not be able to attend Joe's service and burial. Joe was my cousin. He had a heart that was as big as Rockland. I was a cheerleader when he starred on the football team. I have fond memories of that time we had together. Joe did not have always have an easy life. But somehow inside he remained a very sweet soul. I will choose to remember him coming off of the football field with a huge smile after another victory for RHS."
