Katie my heart aches for you. You were his champion and never let anyone tell you "No". I was amazed at your strength and courage always, you made me strive to be better. Sean was amazed with Joe's skills, I truly wish time had been kinder. Know that you have been a "beacon of light and hope" for so many. Your depth of knowledge for disabled needs has offered so much to so many. I wish we could be there tonight to celebrate his life but our life has other plans. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Dottie and Sean Hughes

Joe will always be a loving memory in me. His bright smile and cheerful way of dealing with things even stressful things. Joe shared his love for music (not too loud) and a love for all senior people. Joe never let his handicap slow him down. Joe never felt handicapped and was a true competitor......Lord you have a good one added to your kingdom!
