Sending my most sincere condolences to the Consolini family for your very sad loss. "Papa Joe", as I knew him, was always smiling, kind and ready to engage in good conversation. He loved his crossword puzzles too. I will always remember him as a good family man with a smile on his face. Sending strength to you all as you heal from your loss. Rest in peace, Papa Joe.
