Joe I am going to miss you Cousin. It did not seem that long ago we were sitting on the back porch at your place on sophia street looking down at the houses below and talking about the old times when your Mom Nelly, Aunt Pauline and Cousin Ruby were all living there. Those were the good ole days. I think about them often. I only wished I could have gotten to see you one more time. I know I will see you again in a better place and time. God Bless you Joe. Love always from your cousin Jim Higgins.

Joe had a heart of gold him and i were the best of friends talked everyday. He sure was a worrier I use to tell him not to cause it would only make him sick. I never thought the last time we talked would be it.

I'm gonna miss you Joe.
I love you and I pray your flying high my friend
