"Take care of yourselves and each other, and always remember my motto:
Itís ok to work hard, as long as you play harder."

Today is Joe's 25th birthday. I can't believe we are all grown up, but no matter how many years go by there will always be a few things that bring me back to Joe. The ocean, every beautiful sunset I see, the friendships we've made, but most importantly every time I think about giving up, no matter how great or small the task, I will hear Joe's voice and his encouraging words telling me to go for it, to live without regret just the way he did. I never got the chance to thank him for his support, but somehow I think he knows. Happy birthday Joey, we miss you!
