For awhile I was upset that they were trying to whitewash Joe from Penn State's memory because he deserved better. But I've come to realize that it's not Joe that is hurt by that, it's really future Penn Staters. They may never know all of the amazing things this man did for our university and community as a whole. Still hard to believe he's gone.

Happy Birthday Joe!!! We will always appreciate what you did and you will never be forgotten. My 5 and 8 year old every time they see Northwestern say to me " that's who Joe beat for 400" It is a memory they will never forget.
Happy Birthday to a great man and teacher.You will always be loved and never forgotten..
They may TRY to erase Joe from the record books, but they cannot take him out of our hearts.
Today is a day to remember his family in our prayers.
Happy birthday Joe!

Happy Birthday Joe...and thanks for making "ME" a better person. Yes, you had that kind of impact on people!!!
Happy B-Day Joe!
Happy birthday Joe, love and miss ya Joe! 409 forever! Thanks for being that guy dad always quotes when he wants to put a point across. Wish I could watch you 1 more game through my binocs. Rest easy coach!
Penn State 7x National Champs, home of the winningest college football coach to ever grace a sideline.
Though I never personally knew him, I did find it hard after time not to believe in him. So on this day I can safely feel that Coach Paterno was an alright guy. He was human as we all are and every sum is the addition of all it's parts. I think in general the man was well deserving of his admirable reputation as a humanitarian even with his flaws. May God help you sleep peacefully in your last resting place.
Happy Birthday Joe. As a kid I looked up to him and what he did as a football coach. As an adult I look up to him for what he did as a human being. Thank you Joe for helping me be a better person.
