It was sad to hear, that Joe passed away, when he was young man he told me his dream was to own a sailboat. He was also a good artist, one of his works was a German church in the winter, covered with snow which had pride of place in the Schrank house, Melbourne for many years. Monica said he was a very good dancer and loved to dance with him, and sends her condolences, BB.

We would like to pass on our Condolences to the Gritl families.
We will cherish the times we spent with Joe. We will miss your cheeky smile and jokes. You had a strong-willed personality, a caring spirit and went out of your way to give a helping hand to your children and grandchildren, which you loved dearly.
Whenever we ran out of topics of conversation with you, all we had to do was mention Coke a Cola and your eyes would light up and Coke would be the topic for the next hour or more.
We will miss seeing you on Monday evenings when you would come over to Lance and Sylvia's for dinner.
You will live in our hearts forever.
Rest in Peace Joe.
Charles and Vera.

To the Gritl families
I wash to pass on my deepest sympathy to you all at this sad time. I will remember joe for his smile, his jokes and tricks & conversations we had while shopping with the family. He was a very kind hearted man who love his family dearly. When I stayed with Robert & Katrina joe would pop in just to say hello or have a cupcake to. He loved to see the grandchildren playing there games and enjoying life. To joe may you now Rest In Peace & be side by side with your wife once again. Take care one & all

Mr Gritl, right till the end you were very stubborn and still very set in your ways, some what frustrating to me at time's but probably because I'm very much the same. You are a much loved family member and will be surely missed by all you have touched, Rest in Peace Joe and say hi to your wife for me and reasure her that her daughter is in good hands.
