Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
I opened the AC Press this morning looking for the obit - my thumb slipped into partially open a page when I looked down - would you believe I saw in big bold letters the heading of a story "St. Joe". He sure was. One of my dearest friends of 43 years!! Remember our softball games and canoe trips!! We had great times. Friends don't get any better than Joe and Nancy. My heart aches for Nancy, Megan, Michael, Danny and the entire family and all of Joe's friends. I love you. Deedie
