I can distinctly remember as a ten year old the day Uncle Joe returned from his Army assignment to Korea. There are many many more memories of a good man, loyal to his family, and an uncle who made me feel I was special to him. May the peace of Christ, in whom Uncle Joe believed, keep all the family uplifted in this time of loss.
