Dear Eneida, you were there for me 16 yrs ago when my Dad passed June 17,2005. You came to his wake at the legion and I’ve never forgotten your respect that you’d paid to my father and myself. I’m sorry that I could not be there for you in person as you faced the same terrible event in your life. We are so sorry for your family’s loss.
Love Maureen and Zhenya Sokolovsky
I worked for Joe from 1980 to 1986. As his assistant, I learned about how to match the right person with the job, gardening, cement work, how to enjoy Maria's cooking, how to appreciate our employers and how to get along.
I recall one banquet, in hard times, and Maria did all the cooking and Jose made the wine for that banquet!
It was a roller coaster sometimes, because of the times, but we rode it out.
Joe was an honest, hardworking, family man and I will always remember and appreciate his mentorship.
I will miss you Joe.
