Our beloved friend & coworker Joseph passed away from a battle with cancer on January 25th, 2016. We are so lucky to have been able to spend our days with Joseph telling jokes or pulling pranks on us! He made a difference in everyone's life he met and enriched lives with his healing hands and elbows. He lightened up the day with his smile and positive attitude even throughout his battle with cancer. There is forever a hole in our hearts with him passing and he will be missed every second of the day.
We dedicate each day forward in his memory. Rest peacefully, dear JY. We love you!
