    Oh Joe, my brother from another….I will always remember your humor, your passion for a job, and lord knows your attitude. But most of all I will remember you as a friend who no matter what and where life took you, that you were only a phone call or text away. You left a big hole with your loss. RIP my friend. I’m glad you are no longer suffering. Until we meet again Joe.
