To the family of Joe Hogan -
I first met Joe Hogan as a seventh grader, a good student who was brought in line a couple of times that I will never forget. I then was a colleague when I worked in the Lowell Public School system. We formed a very respectful connection and I always admired him as a gentle, caring, and funny man. When I worked overseas, he wrote to me - once again demonstrating his thoughtfulness and compassion. And then as a parent, I would run into Joe at the Parent Information Center and he always took the time for a big hug and warm hello. Not everyone leaves such a mark. My condolences for your loss.
