There are so many memories with Joe and JoAnn.
Mr Grumpy Joe as he was known on 6th street in Lansdale.
Joe was always available to help me with things around my house or to tell the boys to straighten up lol.
Every day we watched Joe stretch his lines out along the sidewalk while Bear ran around and greeted everyone.
We would just chat about everything while he was doing this. His love for JoAnn and how lucky he was to have her!
His love for everything EAGLES. (We argued many days about the Eagles and Giants). Sometimes we talked politics or religion and of course neighborhood gossip.
Mr. Joe had a big heart and was always willing to help anybody who needed it.
Oh Mr. Joe you will be missed!
