    Prior to my retirement 10 yrs. ago from the State, I worked with Camille, Joe’s grandmother and Joe’s father for the State. I am horrified at what has happened…..I can only say that I hope that whomever did this is caught and justice is served. However, this is so tragic and senseless that even if justice is served, really nothing can repair the hole in your hearts. Please accept my sincere sympathy.

Send your condolences.
