Guest Book

I am so sorry for the loss you and your family are enduring! The Bible provides us with so much comfort. We are told that we will be able to be with our loved ones again! Jesus himself said "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming when all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out!"-John chapter 5 verses 28 & 29. God also promises us at Revelation chapter 21 verses 3 & 4 that He will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and death will be no more. Neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore, the former things have passed away. I hope that you will gain comfort from the scriptures. Again I am so very sorry for the loss you have suffered!!

Joe was such a wonderful man. I have warm childhood memories of spending vacations at his summer cottage in Dennis, MA. He was so generous and he my family feel not as guests, but rather as his family. Even later in life he continued to do what he could to put a smile on a kid's face as he handed out a few extra red tickets for the carnival rides that he was so instrumental in bringing to Milford. I loved him, I'll miss him, but I will never forget him.
