Joe ~ To you and your family... I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. It is so hard to loose the ones we love, but even harder when it's a parent.

ryter 07/09/11 2011 02:59:19 AM

To the Elliott family, so sorry to hear of the loss of Joe Sr. I know the heartache each of you are going through. I am too grieving a family loss of a month today my son (24 yrs old) is gone.
May the tears of sorrow be remembered as joy of the warmth, love and memories fill your hearts each day with the love shared of yesterday.

Vaula Saarenoja 07/09/11 2011 03:00:55 AM

That's very sad news. It's hard to lose a family member. I lost my brother from a brain tumour and worked at a call center at the same time. My life felt like it was on auto pilot. I still helped people on the phone but I was not mentally and vocally there 100%. As you, Joe, a professional singer and singing songs at this time and getting pumped up to rock is just not possible. It's the last thing on your mind right now. I hope your week and a half off is enough time for you to heal. You don't want to go on stage feeling only 50% better. If it makes you feel any better, I'll be travelling to the Toronto show in August, this will mark the first Def Leppard show I go to without my brother. He use to always sit on Phil's side of the stage to watch Phil do up his guitar solos. My brother had a passion for playing guitar but now its just a memory. So, if at any point you feel sad during the show, I will truely understand where you're coming from. You are not alone. Take care, Joe.

Jeremey 72 07/09/11 2011 03:16:10 AM

Very sorry to hear about your loss Joe hang in there your family is our family.

Leida Medina-Ferrer 07/09/11 2011 03:27:09 AM

Joe, I am so sorry to hear about your father. May he now sing with the angels and may his soul rest in peace! Love Leida

deedee75 07/09/11 2011 03:30:24 AM

Joe Sorry for your loss may God continue heal and bless your family.

Elaine Santana-Silfa 07/09/11 2011 03:35:28 AM

When I lost my dad i thought I'd never get over the horrible numbing grieve, felt like loosing a limb, something one of your closest friend can probably testify to, but time went by, acceptance came and left in waves and years later I'm able to miss my old man and actually smile when i do. You will too, i promise. Love, Elaine.-

jenofthejungle 07/09/11 2011 04:05:37 AM

I am terribly sorry to hear of Joe's loss. Sending lots of prayers to Joe, and his family and the rest of the Leps extended family. Rest in Peace Joe's Dad. midge22 is right...take all the time you need. This fan completely understands! ((HUGS!))

Javacat93 07/09/11 2011 04:08:28 AM

Joe, my thoughts and prayers are with YOU and your family at this time! I can't say I know what it is like to loose a parent, however like you I am an only child and can only imagine having to deal with the loss of a parent with no siblings to help share the burden and the grief. Friends are a great comfort during difficult times, but it is still very different when you have no brother(s) or sister(s). So again my sincerest thoughts and prayers are with you.

tmoody 07/09/11 2011 04:09:39 AM

Our sincere condolences to Joe and his family. You are all in our prayers. Sincerely, The Moody Family

df_lep_lover 07/09/11 2011 04:21:08 AM

Joe, you are in my thoughts and prayers-my dad passed a few years ago, and it was the support of my friends and family that helped me. You can take comfort knowing he was able to know your son
take care

Javacat93 07/09/11 2011 04:24:30 AM

Joe, my thoughts and prayers are with YOU and your family!! I can't say I know what it is like to loose a parent, however like you I am an only child. I can only imagine going through loosing a parent and dealing with the burden and grief by yourself. Friends are a great support but it is just not the same as having the support of siblings. So again my most sincerest of thoughts and prayers are with you!

EM578 07/09/11 2011 04:32:36 AM

Me and My Familys thoughts and prayers are with you Joe. Sorry for your loss.

clairegration 07/09/11 2011 09:17:22 AM

My love and thoughts are with you at this very sad time. I actually knew Joes Mum & Dad, my Dad was very good friends with them. Joe Snr was the reason I got into Def Leppard in the first place, he kept giving me tapes with your songs on, along with signed pictures you had done for me. x

Ruka Hanabusa 07/09/11 2011 09:26:21 AM

The pain is strong and the hurt is deep. Your heart feels like it weighs a ton and you don’t know when the heartache will end. You have friends, family, and fans that care deeply for you and send their condolences out by the millions. With open arms we all come to you, to surround you with the love that you may feel is lost. He is not gone but watching over you and is proud of the man that you are and all that you have accomplished in your life. Smile and remember the good times, for that is how he will remember you. Remember that you are loved and that you are never alone to shoulder the pain that you go through.

To the Elliott family,

You are in all of our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. We love and support you. Although this is a time of grieving, it is also a time of celebration, rejoicing in all that is good and remembering that we are the ones who were blessed by his legacy.

Rock on...

I just wanted to take a moment to let you know that most of us are not just fans. we think of you as the background of our youth or our lives. Some of us can relate to songs and events that have gone on with the band.when the good and bad went on, we were there. I want you to know that you all were my saving grace growing up in a troubled home. Def Leppard was my escape. You were and continue to be such an inspiration to me. I too lost my dad in 2008 and I wish I had some words of wisdom or something to make things go easier. It does not get easier but you do learn to live with the change of that person not being there anymore with the help of family and friends. i too am blessed to have my husband and my friends. i pray that you and your family get that strength. God Bless ...NJ

rockchick 07/11/11 2011 04:21:47 PM

Joe, I am so very sorry for your loss. I know that it's always hard to lose someone in your life, even more so when it's a parent. I also lost my dad this past November and it has been quite a journey as well as a learning experience. I know that it just seems to change the way that I look at the world and the way that I want to cherish every day for the blessings God grants me. I cherish every day that I get on this earth to be a blessing to others and to be with the family and friends that I love so much. Your Father is and always will be so proud of you Joe, and so will all of us. We love you Joe and my prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time. May blessings and peace be with you.

Debbie Potter 07/11/11 2011 05:22:38 PM

Hey Joe,

I can only hope you read this. You have lost yet gained so much.

I cannot think of anything more special now (for you) than waking up everyday knowing that your one day closer to the greatest reunion you will ever have! What a warm and yet comforting feeling to have! There is nothing worse (I think) than knowing there is nobody waiting for you on the other side. You have a great reason to be a very happy man.

Jonathan
