Mary Ellen, my heart goes out to you and your and Joe’s families. I know that this was the Lord’s plan for Joe, that he didn’t suffer. You and he had a wonderful life together. We all want more time with our loved ones, but that’s not our decision. My prayers and concern are with you during this difficult time.

Joe was a classmate of mine at Scranton Prep. He was the quiet one. And you never heard him utter a nasty word about others. When he became aware of life's many travails that my and other families endure, he would always offer to help in any way he could. We always looked forward to revisiting with him and Mary Ellen at class reunions. He will be missed, until we meet again in a later life. God bless and keep you, Joe.
