L Linda Jean Russell on Mar 6, 2021

I love you uncle joe. I loved visiting you at Jays Beverage every day. You were always there to talk with me and give me great advice. I am so happy we were so closse through my life because you really meant the world to me. You were such a good example of how we all should live. I would always see you sweeping the floor with your big broom. so when I found out you went to our family heaven, I grabbed my broom and swept my entire driveway, dropping the sand on the wet spots and smashing it with my foot to make sure there were no stains. I know Dolly is happy to have you with her and the rest of the Rocchino clan. I love you for all eternity. Thank you for teaching me how to be the bestI can be. You will always be close to my heart.
