Dear Anna, Joey, Danny & Family: We are so sorry to learn of Joe's passing. I think about our first meeting at Fairview Gospel Church and our immediate connection. Joe always wanted to laugh and always had a smile for you. Life takes us in different directions and we lose touch. But the memories we have can never be erased. A true gentleman has left us. I'm am truly sorry that I cannot attend the services due to family obligations. I want you to know that you will always be in our thoughts and prayers. With deepest sympathy, Nick and Bernadette Salemme.
