Joe,  I will always treasure our memories.  You are my hero.  I still can't believe you are gone...I look at this picture and tears flood my face,  You meant the world to me,  this world is so empty without you!!!  I am so happy you are free from pain and confinement,  yet so so sad all at the same time.  You were an angel here on earth,  I hope the angels know what they have....I love you
