Wow! Has it really been a year? I miss Joe and think of him frequently. What a great guy, and a tremendous loss to his close friends. More than a friend, as Joe would say, we were brothers from a different mother. I look forward to seeing him again in heaven.

In 1986, I met Joe for the first time as a sales rep calling on him at the cemetery that he owned in Louisiana. Joe was the type of guy that you instantly liked. It was not long after that first meeting that we became best friends for life. Joe would introduce me to his acquaintances as his brother from a different mother. But we were much closer than brothers. We would have done virtually anything to help each other. Joe actually saved my life on March 2, 1997 when he made a life-changing challenge for both of us to quit smoking. Three months later, I had open heart surgery. Even though we both had a life-long nicotine addiction, neither of us ever smoked again.
Rarely did a week pass without us at least talking on the phone. The loss of Joe is heartbreaking to me and I will miss him always. I consider it one of life's greatest honors to have known Joe and loved him as my closest and dearest friend.
