  1. My condolences and prayers to Jayne and the rest of Joe’s family. Joe and my dad were wonderful friends, and he was a great friend to me as well after my dad’s passing, living a few blocks over from he and Jayne in Norwalk…while I lost touch with Joe some years ago, I thought of him often and always wish we could’ve reconnected! So sad to hear of his passing, and wish Jayne and family God’s comfort and healing.
