The greatness of Uncle Joe is that his legacy will live on in all of us who were lucky enough to have met him. So many things to remember about him, big and small, have gone through my head these last few days; family get togethers, the RV trips, the scooter. No words will ever capture it and no words ever should. His kindness was indescribable in its scope. We will all miss him.
