Songs, Stories and Memories
I just want to drop a line to tell you I was
a very dear friend of Joe's for many years. I met Joe through
the Bulldog days in Dorchester and "dated" him for several
years. He was the warmest, kindest most caring guy you would
want to meet. I can go into stories about him but we don't have
a couple of years. I will go through my pictures to see what I
can send you.
The last time I saw him he was visiting from
Las Vegas for a week and stayed at my house. Of course we had
to go to the track a few times but that was Joe. I worried
about him then because he wasn't taking his medicine for his
diabetes because he said it was too expensive. I didn't agree
with him because he put other things before his health.
Did he still have his cat when he passed and
if so what happened to it.

Oh I don't know if you know this but Joe was on
Judge Brown one time. Did you see it? It had something to do
with a costume that wasn't made in the timeframe that it was
supposed to be. Judge Brown asked who was the Elvis impersonator
and Joe said himself and Judge Brown got a chuckle out of it. It
One time Joe took me to Florida with him and I
thought we were going to have fun in the sun but it turned out
that he went purposely for the track. So after a couple of days
at the track, I asked to stay by the pool while he went. The trip
was a real disaster. But to know Joe is to love him.
I went to many, many, many shows with him and
had lots of fun. He used to change words to the songs to reflect
my life as he knew it. It was flattering.
Again I will look for pictures.
