I will miss how Joe walked to the beat of his own drum, cared deeply for his neighbors, how a duck flying overhead would interrupt his train of thought...every time, how he could determine which gun went off by the sound, the way he watched every little thing on the street with scrutiny, the way he could tell an animal by its hole, the slow drawl in which he spoke and the way he made me feel safe when he was around. He was a great guy and will be missed.

Joe
My garage, my house, our neighborhood, will never be the same without you. Most especially, I won’t be the same without you.
Thanks for being my friend, thanks for your advice, thanks for keeping me company, thanks for the egg rolls, the tools, the bullets, etc.
Thanks for everything friend, I won’t forget the promise I made. I’ll miss you.
