I am so sad at the news of Joe’s passing. Even more so because I didn’t know he was ill. I certainly would have made it a point to see him and keep him in my prayers. Back in the day when we were in highschool we had a lot of fun. Even before that when we had class trips to the sugarbush. He had lost so many of his loved ones way too early, but now they can be together once again. My love to Lance, Scott, and Marilyn especially. May you test in peace dear friend.
