'SAY IT WITH FLOWERS' REMEMBERING JOE ON HIS BIRTHDAY
Joe was lovingly remembered and celebrated on what would have been his 66th birthday last Monday 31 May 2021.
On the hottest and sunniest day of the year so far, fans and friends flocked to Blackpool from near and far to show their love and appreciation for Joe, who was always warmly referred to by them as 'Our Joe'.
Joe's grave at the town's Layton Cemetery is now covered with the most beautiful 'carpet' of bouquets and plants, in the words of a song Joe made his own :-
'When you wanna say I love you
Say it with flowers
When you wanna say I miss you
Say it with flowers '
Joe's Museum at the Joe Longthorne Theatre North Pier Blackpool was also busy with many fans making their first visit following easing of the Covid 19 restrictions. Thanks to everyone who took the time to remember Joe either in Blackpool or at their own special place.
In Joe's own famous words 'Memories Live Longer Than Dreams'
