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

I'm still in denial about the fact that Joe left our reality and is now adventuring in some other one. I dont know if I will ever be able to except this fact, but what I do miss is being able to hang out and talk to one of the most insightfull and down to earth individuals that I have ever came across. I was fortunate enough to spend lots of time with Joe in the place he loved the most, the ocean. It did not matter the time of day, 12AM or 12PM, he was always so comfortable in that place. While the rest of us are pissing our pants right around dusk and into the night, Joe would just stay out in the water playing like a dolphin, worry free, like it was his second home. Like few others, Joe had a very strong spiritual intuition, a sixth sense. He felt things and had insight from some other place undescribable. Anytime I felt down and needed to talk to someone, I could go to Joe and he would give me this thearaputic guidance. I will always rememeber and cheerish his healing presence.
Joe-wherever you are, wondering the ocean as a dolphin or on that never ending surf trip, I miss you brother.
