    All of the Boji’s were so sorry to hear about Joe’s passing. Such fond memories of our time as neighbors in the late 60’s and early 70’s. Joe always maintained contact with us by sending birthday and holiday cards. Kyle and I were even able to speak with him by phone in the last year or so. So glad we did. He was a kind, thoughtful and wonderful person. My life has been enriched by knowing him. Our sympathy to the Nigra family.

    Joe was our next door neighbor in Bellevue in the 1970s. Last year I had an opportunity to catch up with Joe on the phone. We shared a laugh over one incident he remembered. I was about 8 and had been grounded by my folks. My bike in the garage and strictly off limits. Despite wise advice I’d had enough and jumped on the bike and headed for the street. As I looked back at my brother in defiance I ran right into the back of the neighbors car and Joe saw the whole show. It was great to once again hear his voice. Our thoughts and prayers to the Nigra family. Kevin & Lori Boji, Riverside, MO
