From the stories folder that accompanies The Quilt to displays

This Quilt was designed and stitched by members of Joe’s family, and friends.

The contents of his Quilt all have a particular meaning:

Black background significant of his black cape
Diamond dress ring Joe’s favourite
Dove sign of peace, understanding and love
Organ pipes Joe’s musical talents
Faces one depicting his earlier life, and one depicting his life in the hereafter
The Waves depicting the passing from his earthly life to his spiritual life

 

Peter remembers Joe:

Miss you buddy, taken so young. Remember you always. Peter

If you knew Joe and wish to add your memories to this page, or wish to remember a loved one with a strong connection to New Zealand who has been lost to AIDS, you may do so on this page.
