Will be there in spirit.

Unfortunately I won't be able to make it to the memorial service, as I will be out of town, but I wanted to express my condolences and the following thoughts:

I felt sick when I heard the news and still can't get Joe out of my mind. He was probably the nicest and most selfless person I know; always cheerful, warm and helpful to everyone. I have shared, as many have, great times on and off the water and just can't believe he is gone. He wasn't just the mayor; he was our big brother and even a father figure to some, much closer to most of us than some of our own relatives. Joe was an integral part of our windsurfing family and leader of our community and this is why his loss hurts so much since many of us think of him as family.

I will miss him terribly but keep him in my memories forever. Good by old friend...

    "It's good to have a shredmobile" my friend Caldwell said, so I made one. It's a Ford E150 cargo van done up with lumber and k-mart plastic boxes.
