On Novemeber 1, 1968 my husband and I had a beautiful baby boy..he was the love of my life..He was a good child and interested in everything. Five years later we welcomed his little sister Cindy into our family..another beautiful child. Joe was a good big brother and always looked out for his little they grew older they shared many happy and good times together..We have so many happy family holiday memories..Joey was one of the smartest people I know, he was a "Football Star"....something he took great pride in..he loved football all his life and was an avid NY JETS fan...he was talented in so many area's...there wasn't much that he couldn't fix.. he had a vast knowledge of mechanics and engineering. He loved riding motorcycles and boating...he was very athletic most of his life...He was loved by many people. He fell in love with Jody Cady and they remained together until now. They loved each other very much. He loved his little sister and they spent many happy times on Holidays together, he loved his nephew Shawn also...and spent a lot of time with him teaching him all that he knew and just having fun.. Joe and I didn't always agree on how to lead your life...but I loved him since the day he was born and will love him for the rest of my life.. I will miss him terribly and life will never be the same without him...Rest in peace my beloved son.... your adoring mother...Barbara I. Bodner
