Condolence: From myself & our family, our deepest condolences Linette. The passing of Joe is in essence the passing of part of yourself, your partner, your friend and more. Because of this, his loss is and will be so difficult to overcome, but remember, you do have a great network of friends and family that will help you shoulder the heavy burden that such loss puts on us. Joe indeed might be physically gone, but he will live on in your hearts, your thoughts and your memories, even in the children, because you will see a lot of him in their words and actions. So much of the time we believe we are always and only our individual selves, but I've found myself often being my dad or even my mom in day to day life, that is how we live on, because we are all a part of someone else.
