    Dear Susan,Lisa and Ricky,

    I was very sad when I heard Uncle Joe passed away just last week. I will always remember him very fondly. I have such good memories of him, your mom and your whole family the summers we all got together at the cottages in Kingston. I can still see Uncle Joe, George, (dad), Uncle Louie, Sal and Bill coming in from the fishing boat with their cod.
    Uncle Joe will be in my prayers. God Bless. Love Joyce
