Joel and I served together at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville Alabama. Brilliant, great guy, a great friend. "Uncle" Joel to my kids.

Joel and my cousin Joe Patterson were long time friends.
I met Joel once when we had dinner with him and friends.
I know he and Joe are having a great reunion in heaven.
Rest in peace now.

I remember many Saturday nights at Joe Patterson's home for dinner with Joel. Always a sweet man to me and my kids. I can see him and Joe right now drinking a bottle of red wine and watching The Lawrence Welk Show in Heaven.
