Dear Marie, Bob and family,
I just learned of Joe's passing. I was so saddened. That explains my lack of titillating emails. Sandy and I will miss him, not only from his regular appointments but also from his drop-ins after a visit to dermatology up the hall where he acquired some bizarre head bandage. I also suspect he will be missed by a couple of young ladies in New Orleans. The Pats and Sox have lost a great fan. (Who gets the jacket?).

I met Joe several years ago and knew immediately he was someone I was going love getting to know...and I did, we all did. Just wanted let you all know how much we miss seeing Joe's smile and we miss our talks about the Red Sox, Patriots, New Orleans and life. Personally, Joe was just a breath of fresh air and just made me happy. Especially

Marie and family,

So sorry to hear the news of Joe's passing. Please accept our condolences. Joe had passion and energy for life that was contagious. He was, in many ways, larger than life. We are all blessed to have known him. We so much appreciate the amazing Somerville friendships that have endured for all these years, and the love and support that you all share.

I'm pretty sure that if heaven didn't have one before, there's a non stop tailgate party that's just getting cranked up.

Dear Mrs. Rausa and Family,

I have such wonderful memories of Mr. Rausa, to many to mention. However, I must admit he is the one that gave me the love of football. Spending many days watching Nashoba Tech games,with him and learning all there was to know. I cherish all the memories I have with the entire Rausa family. He will be missed so deeply. My prayers and thoughts are with you now and always. With Love,

Marie and All the family,
My heart is truly saddened to hear this news. Although if it was his time and he was ready, the Lord is kind in bringing him into the fold. I will always remember Joe for wanting to be like him, accepting and loving of everyone, joking, poking fun, but enjoying life so much. All of you were so amazingly great to him and he always knew how much he was loved. Hugs to all of you, I could go on for awhile. Love ya.
