My heart feels so heavy I will continue to pray for Gods peace and love for your family. Losing my daughter to cancer. I do not and will not understand why. Why we lose loved ones to this terrible illness. Remember Joe is in Paradise. Before my daughter Abbey passed. She was seeing Heaven. She said, "Dad I will have a lot to show you when you join me!" I know she gave Joe a big hug!! Marty Van Stipoens Nephew. Trevor

Jane, Kellan, Lucas, Marc: our sincere condolences to you. We will miss our friend and neighbor Joe and are struggling to accept the reality of his passing. Just a short time ago he was walking Jasper, doing a task around the house to occupy his time or simply bantering with whoever happened to pass by. We were privileged to know him for the past 20 years. Godspeed Joe.
