I wish I had words to make it hurt less but only time will heal that and it takes time. Joe won't be forgotten especially by a family as loving as yours.

Words can not express the pain that I have in my heart right now. Joe and I sat at the same table in kindergarten and proceeded to stay together all the way through junior high and high school. We graduated together. Along the way, he nicknamed me "Princess" and it truly stuck. He never called me by my name ever again. I will solely miss that. He was and is such a gentle hearted soul. God love you my friend. Until we meet again.

I've been with the Port of Galveston for a yr & a half and had the pleasure to get to know Joe in that short amount time. He definitely is one of a kind and made me laugh and seemed to take things with a grain of salt. I have no doubt that I ran into him in my younger yrs being a BOI myself. My thoughts and prayers to the family. You will be missed Joe...may you RIP.
