Joseph Michael Roesch


Joe 1

We felt the world stop and our hearts stopped beating when you left…

How we wish we were only dreaming.

Just like the rain; tears fell down from our eyes, we couldn’t speak for a while.

We will never say goodbye to you

because we know this is not the end for us to see each other.

Just for now we need to go in separate ways, till then you will remain in our hearts.

You were always there to listen, love, and defend us in everything.

You were our very best friend.

In our triumphs you were always there with a proud thumbs up.

You gave us strength and a shoulder to cry on.

We are very grateful and proud to call you husband, dad, grampa, and friend.

We would give up everything to have you here again.

Thank you for all the great memories…

For always understanding, listening, caring and loving us your whole life.

Till we meet again…


Love Always,

Kathie, Karyn, Joey, Bradley
