Joe was in every way my brother beloved and I am so grateful for all the years of friendship we shared. What he leaves for us is a lesson about how to live a full,meaningful life. I shall miss my friend but I hold in my heart and my memory the pure joy of just knowing and sharing with him so many wonderful years and such precious memories. I am so thankful that he was in my life.

I want to share my sympathy and grief at Joe's passing with his family and friends. He was always special to me and well remembered tho' I haven't seen him since our high school days. We did communicate last year by email for which I am grateful. The heavens just got a little brighter.

I was Joe's classmate and roommate at Harvard Law and remained friends with him until he passed away. A lot has been said about Joe in his obituary, some of which I did not know. I can only add that, altho he didn't really look the part, he was also one heck of an athlete--I played baseball and basketball with him on occasion and he was very talented. We will all miss him very much.

Joe was first a great mentor and then great friend. His laid-back sense of humor about life and defiance of categorization will be with me forever. I hope he is somewhere surrounded by contemporary art that is as fascinating and enigmatic as he was.

I was Joe's FIRST client-arranged by my father thru Phil Verleger as they were colleagues. He asked for someone'sympathetic' and with a social conscience to handle my divorce! I was his ONLY divorce case, but we
continued a friendship that lasted more than45 years! Close friends does not describe how much Joe meant to me. He would hand me water as a LA Marathon volunteer and surprise me at the finish line! I can't believe
his untimely death-I'm glad he read my digital Easter card
before that fatal walk, but it is really no way to try and
remember such a special person-he would share his 'restaurant' and bakery finds in our neighborhood-and the LA "scene' always
provided us with material for 'mirth.' To say Joe was totally unique is to state the obvious--there are no words to describe Joe's presence and significance in my life-or the many contributions he made not just to me but to many.
I miss him more than words can say-and I am sure I am
not alone in this.
