Condolence & Memory Journal

Cousin Joe was a delightful gentleman who was very well-known in the San Antonio real estate community. He always had kind words for others & a very pleasant demeanor.

My fondest memory is the birthstone ring he selected for me when I was the flower girl at his wedding when I was only 4 years old. Joe picked out the ring himself & it was so big my mother had to wrap masking tape around the back to keep it on my tiny finger long enough to get through the wedding ceremony. I treasured the ring & was delighted to wear it without tape when my finger grew big enough to wear it daily.

Another fond memory is of the beautiful pink blanket Joe & his wife Renny selected for our daughter, Jenny, when she was born in July 1988. Jenny loved this present & kept it for years -- it was her favorite blankie & she carried everywhere until she become too old to do this. It's a bittersweet memory too, Joe's wife Renny passed away only 6 weeks after they sent the blanket to our little Jenny.

Cousin Joe will be sadly missed & very fondly remembered by all who knew him.
