We are so sorry to hearof Father Joe's passing; he was such a kind, wonderful friend, and we know he is singing with a choir of angels, many of whom we know and love. Our hearts are with Anne and Rachel, and we treasure the times we shared wonderful meals and music together. Our love always / Tom and Cathy Matkosky
We were so sad to hear that Joseph has passed away, after his long battle with his health.
We (Vera and Mark) first met Joseph when we visited him and Anne at their home in Waymart in April 2017, when Rachel and Oliver (our son) had been engaged to marry. Joseph showed us the monastery and we met some of the lovely supporting community there, with Father Gabriel being particularly welcoming and friendly. In August 2018, we were delighted that Joseph and Anne were able to come to London for Rachel and Ollie's wedding, despite Joseph's health. Our impression of Joseph as a warm and learned man was reinforced by the quite inspirational talk that he gave at the wedding reception - something that other guests also appreciated. That is the way that we will remember him.
We send our sympathy, condolences and love to Anne, Rachel and Oliver.
Vera, Mark, Alex and Daniel Nicholson,
London UK, 4th June 2019
