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

It's been over ten years since I last saw or talked to Joe. When I heard the news I came here and began to read the articles, these memories, and I looked at the pictures. By doing this, I feel like I have a better idea of what Joe grew up to be. I am envious of the no-holds-barred adventure and enthusiasm that Joe had. I know that we all have dreams and callings, but most of us do not follow them. It is much easier to come up with excuses like I often do. Joe... I can still feel your enthusiasm for adventure and I am inspired. This news has made me rethink my life. We truly do need to be here right now and take advantage of the little time we do have here. Thanks Joe.
