Re: “RIP, Joe Sweeney

I am Joe Sweeney's niece. His death was very sudden and unexpected so it is not until now that I have had opportunity to find this article and comments.
I am overwhelmed by the kind words in many of the comments, thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on my Uncle Joe. I have learned more about the man that was mainly "just Uncle Joe" to me - the selfless man who never missed a Thanksgiving serving those less fortunate or a Christmas with his family. He lived simply, had a great passion for his cause, and ruffled a few feathers along the way. I applaud those of you who truly understood his passion and message, however misunderstood by some (or misrepresented by others). Thank you, thank you, and thank you again. It's obvious that The Tucson Weakly doesn't even have a shred of class in choosing to run this piece written in this way, shortly after the man has battled cancer. Why did you even bother? This vitriol is news?

For those who knew my Uncle Joe: My family is organizing a service for Joe at St. Peter & Paul Catholic Church, Saturday April 30th. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus in the 4th Degree and there will be ceremony presenting an inscribed chalice in his honor prior to the service. All begins at 1:00 PM – to follow will be a less formal reception close by in a location TBA. If you knew Joe, and would like to share your stories I would encourage you to attend, my family would like to meet those who knew him and help celebrate his life through your shared memories.
RIP Uncle Joe, I love you. God Bless.
