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

One of my favorite memories of Joe is when he, Heather, Catherine, Julie, Kevin Bass, Julia and I all went back to Julia's house after school. We spent the afternoon running from the hot tub into the lake...really quite a sight if you were there. Another favorite is riding in the limo from prom to Joe's beach house with Catherine, Adam, Joe, Melinda, Janna, Brad and Robert Sean. I was reading through my journal (i know..i know) and realized that i had written about Joe when I hung out with him over Christmas. The whole thing was about how happy and content he seemed, about to go to Hawaii and hoping to finish school in Australia. I love that I remember him so outwardly settled with himself. It's hard to picture the kid without a smile or a smirk on his face.
