Joe was a loving partner and a wonderful friend. We had so many great times together. He loved to perform and be seen and was the life of the party. We spent the better part of 6 years together and we had one crazy fun loving ride. We all battle our demons, Joe had his own. I wish he had stayed closer. I wish he had stayed in touch. Sending much love to his wonderful family during this awful time. Rest in power Joe! Christopher
