Dear Tracy, Jennifer, Jamie and Joe: Alice and I would like to extend our deepest sympathy to you and the entire Taormina family in this time of great sadness. Please know that our thoughts and prayers will always be with you. Joe was the finest example of a true family man in all that he did. We would all do well in following his example of being a loving husband and great father. Joe always put his family first in raising three great children. He provided them with the necessary moral fiber that made them what they are today. We see Joe’s goodness in each and every one of them. Joe had many blessings in his short life. Along with his children was his devoted and loving wife Tracy. If there ever were two people meant for each other, Joe and Tracy would be that special couple. We will always remember Joe, not in sad times, but rather the good ones. We hold dear all the family gatherings, graduations and beautiful wedding we attended. We’ll miss you Joe. You were one in a million. Bill & Alice Dignan

Tracy, Jennifer, Jamie, and Joseph There are no words for me to tell you how I feel. Joe was my Dago buddy, after all we were the only two Italians in the whole German family! Eddie used to tease me all the time about me being a Dago and I would tell him that I bet Tracy, his only child, would marry a Dago and I would be so happy. Well my wish came true. Tracy and Joe found each other and were married. I was so happy!!! To describe Joe would take hours, loving, fun, caring, warm heart, terrific husband and farther great gardener and so on. This world was a much better place because of Joe. He will be missed. Now he is with Eddie and everyone else in heaven and they both are watching down on all of you. I was watching the Steeler game today and I thought of Joe, I really think that Joe was on the sideline cheering them on yelling GO STEELERS! Joe, I love you and will miss you. Dana
