Joe bringing Howie home with his Dad
Joe grew up to be an outstanding young man and that love, pride and joy, I felt, back when he was in that Cub Scout uniform, never left.
He graduated from college and became a pharmaceutical representative.
He loved all extreme sports, sky diving, white river rafting, skiing. He really loved body building and working out at the gym. Joe also loved the beach. He was a lifeguard for many years at our local beach. Joe loved to go camping. We did a lot of that when he and his sister were little. Joe really loved music too. He really got into the lyrics.
Most of all Joe loved his favorite campanion Howie. Howie was a pitbull rescue dog that Joe took in. He is a great dog. Howie now lives with Joe's friend Jerry.
Joe loved all his family and friends and he had a lot of both.
I don't know whether we told him enough, how much we loved him and continue to, and how proud we were to have him as our son. I can tell you one thing for sure, we loved him with every depth of our hearts and will forever love him immensely.
Losing our Joe has changed us forever. I can honestly say a huge part of me died with him. We will always remember what a kind, considerate, sensitive, super handsome, lovable, dedicated and just plain wonderful person he became and that we are profoundly proud of him. THANK YOU FOR BEING OUR SON, JOE!
We hope you are out of your pain now and we will all be together again someday.
WE LOVE YOU HONEY!!!!
Mom & Dad, Jennifer, Spencer, Alexandra, Gabrielle and of course Howie.
