I am really upset to hear this. Joe Piro is a very well-respected, long-standing business member of this community who has always epitomized what being a good neighbor is all about. He has always taken care of many in this community when they needed help.....one of his greatest attributes is that it's always done very unassumingly and without fanfare.....quite simply, straight from the heart. #not nice
