So sorry to hear the sad news. Buddy Joe and I are cousins and attended St. Ignatius grade school together. I was able to visit with him at my sister's home in Prairie View a long time ago while visiting my mother Stella in Scranton. Sorry I cannot be there for his services. My thoughts and prayers will be with his family.
