  1. Papa, I saw your bright light shine on me twice today. Thank you for letting me know you arrived home safely in his loving arms. – Love, Mary Ann

  2. Lois & Family – so sorry for your loss – Joe was one of the favorite people in my life – I so enjoyed working with him at Alcan and my subsequent visits with him over the years after we moved to San Diego. He was always so proud of his family and the one thing he taught me more than anything else was that family should always come first – I will never forget that. You are a lucky family to have a Joe as head of it so many years – but I am sure that I don’t have to tell you that.

  3. Dear Joe, The value of a Life well lived is measured by the Hearts we reach,the love, joy and good deeds we give, and the fine works and morals we teach,by the the way we strive to live! You aced it, Joe-over the roof-your Family is Living Proof!!Love ,Jean M Kelleher & Family
