We are very sorry to hear of Joe's passing.
Mom and Dad enjoyed many years of good times, friendship and laughter. I enjoyed visiting Helen and Joe when they lived in Southampton. Thinking of all of you and sending hugs.
Jim Heather and family
Condolences to members of the Albright family.
We have fond memories of Helen and Joe.
It was many fun times with Ruth and Harold Banks in Hanover and New Port Richey.
I remember Mr Boeckner at the Big Shop. I worked in the office.
Memories of Helen asking me if my mother would make an apron for Helen's mother. It was created.
Read the Saturday Toronto Star.
Just sharing with you memories of past days.

Uncle Joe had such a wonderfully dry sense of humour. He made me chuckle whenever I spent time in his presence. I just loved that about him🥰- Diane Hoffman
When I think of Uncle Joe, I think baseball and beer. You were always offered one when you went over & invited to join him cheer the Jays on. I'm sure he's cheering for them from above while watching them on the big screen! Maybe he's convinced Aunt Helen to watch with him. We will miss you both. Condolences to Joanne & Jeff who were always there for both of them. And to Jim who travelled from Australia & Tatamagouche to spend time with them.
Joe was always a pleasure to know at Kingsway Place Retirement Home, I will miss him greatly. I would say to him "hey Joe what do you know?" and his reply was "Everything!"..at his age I believed him. He was a very nice person and I am happy to have met him.
My condolences to all the family at this sad time.
