I had the pleasure of meeting Joe in 1996 and enjoyed working with him very much. He was always like the "Energizer Bunny", in perpetual motion, and was extremely dedicated to his work. He was also one of the sweetest people I have ever met. I had the honor of sharing his birthday, August 14 and will miss our emails telling each other "Happy Birthday"! Heaven has another angel, but we mortals will be sorely missing him. My sincerest condolences to his family.
