When Joe Fernekes announced his retirement from the Council, I wrote a little poem for him and was going to recite it in his last day on council but because of a big project from work , I forgot about it.

THANK YOU MR. SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, JOE FERNEKES
(beloved former Mayor and Council member of the city of SSF)

Joe, who you are in this world
Is special and wonderful
In your own friendly way
Because of you the world is brighter
like the Day in the Park, you’d made your mark
We’re glad you have touched our lives
A delightful gift from Life itself
You stand out
Your friendly, open ways
Are much appreciated
So many distinguishing qualities
Are the reasons you, Joe, are unique
You're certainly one of a kind
You never would settle for less
Than being exceptional
You're not just good
You're the best
A toast to the way you were compiled
Your talk, and your walk and your smile
As champagne in a glass
You bubbled with class
And sparkled with a quiet style
An example to which many aspire
You are forever good and
Deserving of admiration
Others can look up to you, it's true
So thanks very much
For your special touch
We appreciate all that you’ve done

May God be with you always
May His blessings be with you forever
May you bend gracefully with the wind

Thank you, Joe, Mr. South San Francisco
and Denise his wife and his family.

With love and prayers from a Resident,
Elizabeth Nisperos
