Lisa and family, I am very sorry for your loss. I primarily worked with Joe through committees at work, but no matter when I encountered him, he would light up a room with his positive attitude and contagious smile. He made a positive difference in our lives and we were very lucky to have him as a part of our organization. Take care--we will keep you in our thoughts.

I was so sorry to read about Joe. My memories of him are of the older kids babysitting him, just like all the youngest kids of big families in Terrace Bay. My heart goes out to Lisa, Rebecca and Joey and all the Kennedy and Fournier families. I remember my mom talking about how much she enjoyed your wedding and I am sure she would join me in passing on our sympathy and letting all of you know we are thinking of you.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

When you grow up in a small town you form life long bonds with the people you called friends. And though you may not see them much anymore, whenever you did it is like no time has passed since the last encounter. Still laugh about the same things, ask about our old friends and now talk about our own families. I always enjoyed my chance encounters with Joe to have a laugh and catch up. My (our) condolences to Lisa and the kids and the rest of their families. I will always have some good memories and some good laughs.

My Thoughts are with you Lisa, My Mother (Ceil Smiley) was a very good friend of the Kennedys. She was brother Pats godmother. She grew up in Northern Ontario, living in Terrace Bay, Schreiber, Thunder Bay etc. Pat lived with our family in Nanaimo, BC years ago and when I lived in North Vancouver I saw Mary Clare quite a bit.
