  3. Joe was such a kind, caring and accepting person. He always seemed to be upbeat, no matter what was going on. He had a great sense of humor, which could cut through any tension. I was always impressed with how deeply he was connected to his family and how caring he was to animals (most recently taking on and rehabilitating a rescue cat that no one else wanted). He seemed to have a clear sense of what was important in life and a good perspective on taking things in stride. He will be deeply missed.
