I will miss Joe's always smile at the Wuertz Family Reunion in Madonnaville. He is, in my mind, a kind and gentle man. My sympathy to my cousin Lois and to Joe's extended family; especially to the Roever family who know and loved Joe as a dear brother-in-law and close friend.

My sympathy goes out to the family. 1949 was a good year for alot of us. Sorry to read that his life was cut too short. Love to you all from a 1967 grad of Gibault High School.
