Not sure what to say?

I have very fond memories of working with Joel for almost fifteen years at Atlanta Environmental (AEM). He was incredibly smart and was a good mentor to me as well as a good friend. He also taught me a good deal about stock market investing. He is sorely missed by many at AEM and we are truly sad to have missed his funeral. We saw his obituary the day after the funeral in the AJC. Godspeed, Joel........
