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

My Memories of Joe, are probable twofold, the first, would be of joe, and his great mate RS, sitting in the Great Northern Hotel in Newcastle, enjoying a few quite beers, and popping a $5 Dollar note through the pokies, chatting to the boys, and keeping a keen eye on the "talent" as it passed by their general direction, especially Joey. The second would be of a guy, who seemed to have all the time in the world, was just so relaxed and happy with the life, especially when the waves were good. Although I cant understand why this tragedy has occurred, and for that matter the grieve that the Milligan family are going through right now. All I can say, is that our thoughts are with you, your son is an incredible person and will not be forgotten by those he touched whilst in OZ.
