It's been 6 years since you left, last year on your anniversary I was there just like every year . Last year music was playing everywhere on every street corner the air the atmosphere was a lot lighter than it had been the 4 years before I felt your presence all over the place I still miss as I did the day you left I still don't know wat to do with myself still walking around in a daze !,I've noticed that when things get really hard for me I start hearing yr voice and u tell me don't worry I ve always told you I'll always take care of you no matter wat and as I listen to you things just start fallen into place for me....Thank you baby I love you more than words can say...This year when I was there there was clouds I started lightening incense like I always do I looked up again there was not a cloud insight then I start playing music I start getting goosebumps and feeling at ease then we start to pray and my friend stops the prayer and says "I'm sorry but I have an overwhelming urge to tell you something cris your so beautiful,I haven't heard that since the day you left I knew you was there baby I knew it and she's in awe and I told her why she said it and I'd show her I'd just got all yr letters out and almost all of them say that you are so beautiful....I love you baby so much and I love it when you make it known your here thank you for making it a little bit Oki miss you so much baby so much untill next time I love you

I can't get over how Much looked like Charlie when he and I shared a house in Indpls. in the 1970's. I'm sure Joe was the same kind hearted Charlie was back when I knew him.
Our life on planet earth is but a breath a life and we're noted for how we traded our fellow human beings while here.
I'm sure Joe was the kind of human being who respected life and showed the endless love and respect his father exhibited when I knew Charlie.
We must not grieve for long because before we know it, we too will join our loved one's the that great divid we call Heaven.
Joe may you rest in peace awaiting the once more re-gathering of your precious loved on's...

When we were kids, Joe bought a moped from a neighbor. We rode it up and down the street for what seemed to be hours on end. He was always a great friend to me and I am sad that his life on earth has ended. You will always be remembered. Rest in peace.

Joe always had a smile & a hug. He was a gentle soul with a ton of love in his heart. Rest in peace with the Lord Joe,as we all know you're walking hand in hand with Him. My prayers are with all your family & friends, especially Cris & Christopher...what a sweet family you have. Looking forward to seeing Christopher at Awana...he loves being there so much & we love him being there. God bless you.

Joe will definitely be remembered for his humor. Along with his style of braids. He could put a smile on someone's face. We can remember about two years ago, Joe was so excited about his new job with Kerby. He was so determined in selling those Kerby's. He came to our house to show us a demonstration. He was so educated about Kerby that while he was demonstrating the Kerby and talking to us about it, he ended up vacuuming our whole living room, our couch and our bed. His was excellent in selling to us, but Kerby is just toexpensive. Joe was a good guy and was very much loved.

It was awful that the devil inspired someone to do such a ruthless act upon Joe. Joe was a good person trying to make a living and do the best that he could in life. He loved his family and was inseparable with his love, Cris and his son, Christopher.

Jesus you wept at the tomb of your friend. Let this family, also, Lord, share their grief with you. Release the tension bottling up inside of them, and grant them freedom from pain and new life in healing with each tear they shed. Each teardrop of pain is precious in Your sight, O Lord. Let them offer their tears in honor of Joe and for the love of You. Bless all who mourn, that they be comforted. God of power, You watched as Your Son Jesus died on the cross. Be with the family and friends of Joe as they journey on together without him. Comfort them as they mourn, and help them to remember that they are not alone, in each other and in You. Grant them the light of Your love in the darkness of grief. God, please wrap your arms around the family and friends that they may find comfort and peace. Allow them to continue worshiping your Grace. Lead them in the right direction that they may glorify you. May God bless Joe and his family. AMEN

Love,

Sal, Sandra. Brandon and Tyler Giliberto

I got to spend time with Joe in Oregon last year. He fell in love with
the place and was determined to move here. Fate said otherwise and
we all lost somebody we loved. Joe is where we'll all be by and by. Go easy nephew, I'll see you up the road.

I was heartsick to hear of Joe's untimely passing. He kind and thoughtful and although I had only been around him a handful of times it was obvious to me that this was a man with a tender heart. My last memory of Joe was getting a big hug from him at Christmas 3 years ago when he was with our whole family. I am so glad he joined us that Christmas Eve. God Bless you Joe.... I am hopeful you know how much you are loved by so many...

Joseph,
This is such a sad moment in my life.I will truly miss you.I remember the first time I had meet you.We were at a family party.You was then such a sweet and kind person.The next time I seen you was on Easter Sunday Day year of 2008 at my church for the celebration of my Baptisume Day.What a joyful event this was for me and for those of my family that was present with me.You was a blessing to be to be there.I shall never for-get this day nor will I ever forget you.As I celebrate this 3rd year of standing firm in the name of Jesus I will also rejoice in the celebration of your death being with the Lord.So my friend until we see one another again rest in peace.
You are an angel now so spreed your wings and fly

Joe was such an amazing, kind, generous friend. I didn't know anyone who disliked Joe. He was the kind of friend who would take the shirt of of his back for you, if you asked. I haven't seen him in many years, but he is one of the few people from my past I would have been thrilled to run into again. I would have loved to have play dates for our kids, reminisce about all the crazy stuff we did when we were in high school, or just cruise around and jam to some Hendrix again. After our senior year, he moved and didn't have a phone at the time, so we lost touch. I am deeply saddened that these things can never take place now. I will be keeping his family and friends in my prayers, especially his mother and fiance, who's pain I can't imagine. I pray that God keep Joe close to his loved ones in their hearts and minds, and that He keep His hands on them and moves them toward some kind of peace after such a horrible tragedy. I am so sorry for your loss, Stephanie and Chris. And for the loss felt by the many people who loved him.
