Joe, we took too much for granted. We waved as we drove by, we talked to you occasionally at the Wheatons, and we even called on you for help the day we were stranded on River Road! Now, you are gone too soon. We would have loved to know you better, but you are leaving your beautiful family and home as a testament to who you were. Both reflect your intelligent, creative, gentle nature. Our hearts go out to your entire family in sympathy.

Dear Janet, Janine, Jordan and Jonathan, Words cannot express our sorrow to hear of Joe's untimely passing. Wish we could be there with you all. What a good, kind and loving person Joe was. How welcome our John always felt at your house in Rockville Centre. How wonderfully kind Joe, and you all were to us when John had that seizure at your house up there. We will never forget all your kindness and love. Joe was such a special human being....we may not see as good a one again for a very long time. To quote young John...."Mr. Erario was about the nicest person I ever knew in my life". The world is not as bright without Joe, and we were lucky to know him. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers, and will remain in them in the coming days. We send our love and hugs to you all. With our very deepest sorrow and love, Kathy, John Sr., Tricia, John and Michael
