This is Magda, Comparto tu dolor por la perdida de tu maravilloso esposo Joe. Tengo gratos recuerdos de cuando recien llegaron a Florida y jugamos tennis juntos. Y el dia de tu cumpleanos con la devosion que te miraba. This is Ford I have known of Joe for deades because our wives Anita and Magda are Peruvian cousins. But we didn't meet until our two families separately retired to Florida almost 30 years ago. We lived only 30-40 miles from each-other, and because of the close relationship of the Peruvian cousins we ended up seeing eachother several times a year. Joe and Anita would come occasionally to Punta Gorda for dinner and events at our Yacht Club, and we were frequent guests of their beautiful home and complex in Bonita Springs. Joe and I have been big sports fans, and enjoyed eachother's company; we would frequently meet in Fort Myers for lunch and a movie which we all enjoyed. And then coincidentally we both left Florida for South Carolina a few years ago to be near our daughters. They were based in Greenville and we in Columbia. We frequently would get the families together for special occasions, and our daughters and their spouses got to know each other well. It was a warm and loving "extended Latina family" relationship that we all enjoyed. We will miss Joe mightily; but we hope we can continue to get the remaining family members together for as long as possible to continue the tradition.
Joe's sister, Rita left a message on March 4, 2024:
My sympathy goes to AnaMaria, who remained a faithful and loving wife to Joe for the last 60 years. I will always thank God for her care and patience. I pray God will help her remember the good times.

Thinking of you all. Joe was a wonderful man and will be missed greatly. I was fortunate enough to have him as my godfather. I know that he will continue to watch over us all.
