Lisa, may God comfort you and your family, as you adjust to life without Joseph. He taught me many things during the countless hours we spent working together at SMI. My parents thought so much of him, especially my dad, who loved to share his WWII Italy experiences with Joseph. Even if it's decades from now, it's a short time in light of eternity when we'll get to see Joseph again. May you receive God's best in the meantime.

He was a friend and a great teacher to me at SMI. What a great class guy, he will be missed. My prayer is for family healing for their loss of a father and family leader.
He was always the role model in business and music.

Lisa and Family, May God bless your hearts and be your comfort. Joseph was an amazing man blessed by God. He touched so many lives and hearts through his love for music and his life stories. As you celebrate his home going, your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you. Sandra Hill

Lisa, Von and I send our prayers to you and your family during this time. I remember great times with Joseph when we were at SMI. The stories he told of his childhood in Europe were amazing. I know he will be missed. God Bless,

Dear Lisa and family, my deepest sympathy for the lost of your soulmate. I found out about Joseph departure today! I enjoyed good laughs with Joseph and will never forget that he always had a teaching or a story to share! A true listener, a candid and bright spirit! That is how I will remember him!

I still remember how much fun we had at the stand up comedy show in Atlanta two years ago! The peace of the Lord be with you and your family! He will be truly missed!
