You don't remember me, Madam Mayor. However, I was a customer of Joe's on several occasions over the years. He would light up when I walked into his office at the marina as he knew I was ready to trade. That meant two deals, not just one. I can't tell you how many times we did business, but it was always a delight. Of course, he convinced me, or the firm, to spend more than we should have, but always a profit was ultimately made. No harm, no foul. On top of that, we sent business to one another and during some of the early years kept one another..., ahem..., afloat [sorry about that, I learned it from Joe]. People are probably writing in with great laments and sorrow. Me, I remember the good times with your wonderful husband and the great fortune I had in knowing him.
Best your way,

When we think of Joe, we remember him as a warm and jovial friend, with a love of family, boats and specialty automobiles who was an excellent story teller.
We extend our deepest sympathy to Carroll and family.
So very sorry for your loss.
