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

Joe was one of my most dear friends. No matter what kind of day I was having, as soon as I would open up one of his e-mails, I would immediatley get the biggest grin on my face. He always made me feel so special. I knew he was living his dream and in complete bliss. Although I missed him desperalty, I was so happy for him and could not wait till the day we would meet again. I'll never forget spending New Years with him last year in Breckenridge. We had a blast! I hadn't seen him in a year, but the minute we reunited, it was like we had never left each other. We laughed and laughed and talked about how we were so content, because we were both living our own seperate dreams. I'll never forget celebrating his birthday in Orlando two years ago with Jordan, Ashly, and Anna. We went downtown and laughed till we literally cried. We all had stomach aches for two days after that night from laughing so hard. Joe was such an amazing young man; handsome, intelligent, witty and he posessed an attitude like no other. He was so positive and optimistic. He will stay in my heart forever.
