Dear Bahia and family;
We are so sorry to hear of Joe's passing. I saw you at church on Sunday, but had not known about Joe. I am so sorry for your loss. Joe was a good man, and I always liked him. The last time I saw, and spoke with him was several months ago. I told my wife Bernice that you were crying when you left church Sunday. She was concerned because she heard the Slaiby name mentioned at mass. I did not see anything in the news, so I started looking at the funeral pages online; and found out too late. I am very sorry for that. You are in our prayers and our thoughts. May God bless you and be with you in your sorrow.
Bill and Bernice

Please accept my condolences on behalf of the entire Salisbury family. Our thoughts are with you. For over 30 years I've always seen big smiles on your faces and know where you got it from because Big Joe always had that same smile for everyone. Our hearts go out to you all.

So sorry for your loss. Joe was a nice kind hearted man. I would play cards with him and can't believe this as happened, may he still be with you through kids and grandkids.

Mrs. Slaiby & Family,

Mike and I are so deeply sorry to hear of Joe's passing. What a wonderful neighbor Joe has been to our family the last several years we have known him. Joe will truly be missed with his friendly warm smile and pleasant "Hi how are you" he gave each time he saw any of us. What a pleasure it was of getting to know him and it won't be the same without him in our neighborhood.

God Bless you and your family our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Take care of each other,

Sandy, Mike and Family
