    Ellen, So sorry to hear about Joe's passing over the holiday. I worked with him for a number of years at TRW in the basement of R5. We shared a lot of common beliefs and work ethics. I could always rely on him for getting things done and for his openness on things. If I asked him a question about things, he'd give me the straight scoop, no 1/2 truths or political correctness. He was a true friend.
    It was pleasant to see that we had seats next to you two on Sunday afternoons at the SBCLO while it was still solvent.  
    Again my heart goes out to you and your family.Ron Woods

    Scott, Rebecca, girls, and family:

    I am so sorry to hear about Joe's passing. Although I never met him, I do know he must have been a wonderful man as reflected in the way you all gathered around him.  How good for him that he had the opportunity to feel everyone's love at the time he needed it most. 

    It takes much strength to get through these days, but it will be the loving memories of how Joe shared his life with all of you that will help heal all hearts.  In this way, he will never truly be gone, but with you always.

    Our deepest sympathies and wishes for courage.

    Love,

    Sharon and Phil
    Pennsylvania friends.

    Hi, Joe. Thinking of you and remembering the family camping trip to Sequoia and all the fun you and Larry had jumping across rocks in a stream and falling in. It was great having Larry along for the vacation. I hope you are comfortable and able to rest. Love and hugs. Jeanette
