Joe and I became close friends when my wife Gloria was a resident at Lexington in 2016 to April 2017 before she passed. I remember when Joe told me to move the clock to another location in the lobby and no one ever noticed. He would always find a way to crack a joke or say something funny to cheer me up whenever my wife Gloria wasn't doing well. Thank you Joe so much for finding a way to make me smile!!

Yvette and family.
My condolences to you and the family.
Joe came to Lexington after Phill and they were a fearsome twosome.
Now they can chase each other around.
I will keep Joe in my prayers.
