My deepest sympathies to Joe's family on the sudden loss. I recently reconnected with Joe after a long time and it was fantastic. A very talented professional who will be missed. I have no doubt that everyone that has come into contact with Joe always benefited from that contact. I know that I have.

My Deepest Sympathy to you, Shannon, Reagan, Noah and Joe's family. Our family loved Joe and loved having him be a member of our family through his marriage to you, Shannon. We looked forward to seeing him at all our family get togethers. We will always remember him as a fun-loving, responsible and reliable (above and beyond) family member. Hugs and prayers to each of you...
