Cheryl and Bill from Sugar Grove, IL

"So, so sorry Char. Joe was a great guy."

Debbie Thall from Saint Charles, IL

"Those of us at the Saint Charles Walgreens have and will continue to miss Joe and his nearly daily visits to the store. When I started at the store in 2020 and he found out that I was Italian and had grown-up in Chicago, we shared many stories about the good old days in the Windy City. I even got a chance to sample a jar of Joe's homemade spaghetti gravy! My prayers and condolences to the Char and family. Joe grazie for all the boxes of donuts holes."

Cheryl Stella Dalisay from St. Charles, IL

"Char, I was so sorry to hear of Joe's passing. He was always so kind to me and the two of you shared a very special bond. May you be comforted by beautiful memories and the love of your amazing family around you. I will be praying... ~Cheryl"

Jim and Mary Ann Bernas from St Charles, IL
