    “Dad” was kind at heart with a tough exterior, and I’m proud to have known him. He welcomed me into the family without judgement and for that I thank him. I will miss our “discussions’ about massaging dogs…he was a true debater. Love to you all, he will always be in our hearts xo

  4. I am so sorry to hear of Joe’s passing. I will miss seeing him out on the dog walks. I always enjoyed our encounters on the path. Joe was always pleasant to speak with and I could tell how much he loved Anna from conversations we had.

    To my number one roadie,

    I will never forget one of the last conversations we had with each other about touring together. We came to the decision that you would be my sound techy under the strict condition that we would play shows all across Europe. With myself on the decks playing music and you behind the scenes to make sure of a smooth operation, I just know that we would have made quite the team. Someday when I make it to Europe there is no doubt in my mind that you will be in my heart and thoughts. I promise to enjoy a crisp pilsner beer in your honor and bring home only the finest jeans for Krissy to replace her “hobo” jeans, Just like we had planned for. I love you and I know I can speak for everyone when I say that we are so very thankful to of had you in our lives for the time that we did.

    Dear Panni & family,
    Sorry to hear about Joe’s passing. Though we were some kind of distant relations somehow we were never close, which is regretable. Nevertheless we always enjoyed your company especially Joe’s quick wit and love of discussion. As you share memories of him, may you truly find that the one you all loved so much is still living amongst you in your memories and hearts…….A & V
