Joe, knowing you, you will be doing great things at your next journey. You will be miss. You were a great man and friend to many of us at FTB. I still remember the day many of us went skiing for the first time and took a skiing class. It was such a blast :)
May God keep your soul with him in peace. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
With prayers, Letty Assad
