Condolence & Memory Journal

To all of Joe's family & friends,
I realized he passed months later & feel the deepest sadness for everyone.
I knew him for a long time then lost contact.My mind is racing with reasons,saddness and him being alone?
He was a huge smile & funny. His whole family is all he talked about.Lots of LOVE he had to all of you. Words is all I have to vent & forgive me if my saddness is there but I am sadden by this.He will be waiting for every friend & family up at heaven door.I can picture him sitting on top of the gate rocking it .
Joe's laugh will lead us to him.Rest in peace.

Hi Joe its your friend Michael Cunningham my prayers and thoughs are with your family. You were such a wondeful young man to be around back in our high school days together at North Kingstown High School there in North Kingstown, Rhode Island.

You will be greatly missed by everyone that we went to high school with and especially me too. Rest in peace my friend. I will see you in heaven someday. I miss your great character and your smiles plus the jokes that we told one another back in our school days together. Again rest in peace buddy. Bye now
