I am VERY sorry for your loss. Joe and I played in bands together and I was amazed at his talents. He was a great bandmate and a friend. I will fondly remember my times of playing many shows with him and the blood, sweat and tears we put into each rehearsal.

May you all find comfort and strength through this difficult time and know that I’m sure Dad is looking down on you and wrapping his arms around you tightly.

Terry and family, we are so, so sorry for your loss. Joe was certainly a one of a kind guy. We didn't know him well, but the few times we hung out he always acted like we had known each other forever. I am glad we were able to spend the afternoon together at the fair and am so appreciative of the way he took Collin under his wing. "We will miss you hippie"

What a handsome man, Mr. Santorelli was. Please allow me to offer my condolences to his family with these healing words of a mother who lost her dear son in death. Jesus said to the mother, “Stop weeping.” With that he approached and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still. Then he said: “Young man, I say to you, get up!” And the dead man sat up and started to speak, and Jesus gave him to his mother." (Luke 7:13-15) The prophetic vision of Revelation 21:1-4 points to the time of “a new heaven” and “a new earth” and gives the promise that then “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” This is the resurrection hope for, Mr. Joseph, as well. I am very sorry for the loss of your beloved son. May God's Word comfort you and your family. Sincerely, Meryl, -

Terry, Gary, Katie & all of the Santorelli family: Words can seem so inadequate. But please know that so many people's lives have been eternally blessed by this wonderful young man. And just as his spirit lives on, so does all of the love he passed along to everyone he touched. Prayers for peace and comfort to all of you. You are an inspiration to so many. God bless.
