Joe used to come see us at work - picking up boats. He always had a smile for us and joked w/ us about taking him to lunch.
I'm so saddened to hear of his passing. My prayers are with his family and friends - grieving isn't an over-night process. May you be comforted with happy memories of Joe - and may the memories of him that make you laugh heal your heart during this time.
When I remember him - it will be with a smile.
