Dear Tina, Jolin, Christy, Linda, Joanne and Peggy,
I am so sorry for your loss.
Joe and I have been good friends for over 50 years. My teenage years on the beach of Lake Michigan would not have been as great without Joey as a great friend. The summers on the beach were a wonderful way to grow up. Having Joe as a friend made it even better.
In the last 10 years we saw less of each other. We still would call each other 2 or 3 times per year.
I will miss you Joe. You have been a friend for life!

Linda & John Indelicato

Dear Ron and Joann,
We are so very sorry on the death of Joey. He is way too young. We were surprised when Paul Bamberger let us know. Dick figured Joey was 2 or 3 when he met him. Keep the wonderful memories to help thorugh this difficult time.

There are no words or emotions to explain how our father, grand father, brother, uncle and friend made us feel. He gave his heart, his soul, his everything he had within him for his family, it was a true unconditional love. He felt what we felt, understood what we didn't and was an ear when you needed one. His heart was larger than life itself. He is and will forever be a blessing that has touched so many lives.

Daddy - You were the light in my life and now a forever shining star that will guide me. I could not have had a better father. Your love, compassion and patience has made me the person I am today. A person that I'm proud to be. I am forever greatful. I love you always and forever! Christy
